Metamorphosis’ First Summer Collection Is Out!

Do you like 50s inspired clothes? prints? quirky outfits? I do!

I mentioned weeks ago that I began working on creating my own line of clothes and it’s here! Actually, it’s been live for more than a month now, I only found the time to share it here today. I have to improve my marketing skills, I know. HA! In the meantime, here is my first 8-piece collection, which I shot and styled myself using Chad’s Canon AE-1 film camera with my lovely model Tiana Cruz:

Audrey skirt 500

Hailey skirt 450

Raina skirt 500

Twiggy skirt 500

When I designed these clothes, I thought of Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy in the 60s. That’s why I named some of the pieces in the collection after them. The 50s and 60s are the two decades that broke fashion traditions, especially the latter. New and unconventional styles also emerged. Color was everywhere!

Metamorphosis is a very meaningful word to me. When I was a kid I relied on second-hand clothes from my cousins. My clothes were often old, ill-fitting and out-phased so I grew up with low self-esteem. But I used that as motivation to strive harder and to dream. My personal style changed. I now know what looks good on me (and on others too). I metamorphosed from a scrawny baduy girl to a lady who is now aware of fashion.

I like wearing clothes that exude happiness and love, which is why I chose wonderful prints and lively colors for my first collection. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do! You can view more photos on Facebook here, and I would really appreciate it if you’d like the page too. 🙂

Hello everyone! It’s February and I’m celebrating it with a blog post. I love this month because people seem happier and more in love during this time of the year. I was a little bit sad during last year’s February because my boyfriend was in another continent, but I’m feeling great this time around because he’s here in the country. I’m quite excited for our Valentine activities, although I know it won’t be much different from our daily activities since we always have fun every time we’re together.

That has always been our mindset since we started dating. We’re no ordinary couple—he lives in the States while I stay in the Philippines. When you’re not always together 365 days a year, you tend to make the most out of every second you have together. We never argue; we respect each other’s opinions. We do misunderstand each other sometimes, but we come to a resolution right away. We communicate and talk a lot and I think that what makes our relationship special, aside from our common interests.

And speaking of common interests, we tried a new roll of film today–Kodak Pro Image. As you know, we’ve been using film in my posts. We tried Solid Gold ISO 200 and recently Kodak Gold. I love both of films but without the right light, photos can look muddy and murky sometimes. Kodak Pro Image, however, is a stunner. Colors are more alive; the sun was setting when we took these photos using Chad’s Canon AE-1 film camera but photos looked like they were taken while the sun was high. You’ll definitely see a lot of Kodak Pro Image film in this blog. So if you’re an analog junkie like us, visit my blog and Chad‘s often. 😛

Last week I got this awesome magnetic bracelet, sent by ULINX, and I love the fact that it’s a very versatile accessory. More on that on my next post!

Beach Bunny

If you’re following me on Twitter (or Facebook), you’ve probably known that I came to La Union with the boyfriend for a little vacation. Chad’s just arrived from Florida, while I’ve been dying to see the ocean for months. So this week’s the perfect time for travel.

Now below is a video we made during our 3-day stay in La Union. We called it a video lookbook as it shows three of my favorite, if not usual, looks. Chad only used a holga for this video and no manipulations were made, except cutting unnecessary scenes. We had so much fun making this so we hope you will enjoy watching it, too.

I’ve prepared individual posts for each look and will share them in the coming days so watch out for them if you want to see photos and the list of brands I wore in this vid.

If it’s not too much, give us some love over at Facebook by liking our video and sharing it on your wall–just follow this link. Thank you so much! Bye bye <3
