Sam Lim and I have known each other since July. He shot two layouts for me around that time (see here and here). He is a very professional photographer who works for Hinge Inquirer Publications, and is so easy to get along with. So when he messaged me to style for an Esquire-inspired shoot, I immediately agreed despite being inexperienced when it comes to styling, especially for sexy shoots.

The peg was Solenn Heussaff’s photos in the said magazine, which I also talked about here.

Below is our version:

In coming up with this look, I used a nude, button-down cardigan from Forever 21 since I do not have an oversized sweater like Solenn’s. I will probably have to include that in my things-to-buy list.

Then, I made her wear a pair of shorts to make it less sexy. I guess the decolletage has already made that point. I also accessorized the model with a fabre necklace from Antler, pearl earrings, rings, and bangles.

Doesn’t she resemble Kelly Misa? 😀 Elaine Silva did an awesome job with the make up.
