Music and Prints

I am writing this entry while Pumped Up Kicks is playing. I just cannot work with silence screaming in my ears, you know. Music brings me to my element.

Sam wanted movement shots when we took this layout, but I was too shy (haha!) to move around so he had to play some dance music in the background.

This animal print dress-looking thing is actually a faux fur coat from House of Cocco. The first time I set my eyes on it, I instantly fell in love. The mannequin, which was elevated from the floor, was wearing it when I came in the store, so I had to ask the kind people from Cocco to get it for me.

It truly frustrates me how we can’t wear fur coats, don layers, and wear boots in our country. We’re missing out A LOOOOOOOOOOOT.

Adorable, isn’t it? What’s great about this coat is that it’s not too cozy, just enough to shield the cold, so we can definitely wear this here in the tropics. Besides, it’s December already and it’s the only month we Pinoys can get away with this kind of garment. Cocco has recently released their December/cold season collection so you might want to check out their stores in SM and Trinoma. Gora na!

So what do you think?

Hype this look on lookbook and chictopia. 🙂

Leighton Meester meets Solenn Heussaff

Yesterday was a crazzzy day. I “modeled” and styled for my photographer friend, Sam Lim at Hinge Inquirer Publications office. Plus, I got to see what an actual magazine publication office looks like. I scanned the whole office and I thought, “this is my dream job, my dream workplace.” We’ll see. Maybe next year? 🙂

Going back, I styled for an Esquire-inspired shoot yesterday. It’s actually quite sexy for my taste, but heck, sexy can still look classy when styled the right way. I considered it a challenge. And I do hope the photos will come out looking classy. HAHA. Sam, the pressure is on you, mate!

The peg for Princesz, the model, was Solenn Heussaff’s photos found on Esquire:

I wanted to tone down the sexiness a bit so I chose a nude oversized sweater instead and made the model wear accessories to add some style. Elaine Silva did a great imitation of the make up. Below is a behind-the-scene photo I was able to take while Sam was doing his thing. 😀

After Princesz’s shoot was done, it was my turn. Dun dun dun. I chose a more daring make up, which was inspired by Leighton Meester’s beauty shoot for Marie Claire:

Leighton, why so gorgeoussss!

Below is an outtake of what the make-up artist, Ms. Wilma Esturco, came up with:


I can’t wait to show you, guys, the actual photos! Come back soon . 🙂

LV 2011 designed by Marc Jacobs took a really oriental turn in its Spring Summer 2011 collection. Mao-neck pieces were all over the runway. LV made it a little more fierce by splashing some colors. The following were the highlights of the collection:
