White and Gold

Another back log. A few months ago we had a spontaneous family pictorial. And since we’ve done red so many times before especially on Birthdays, Christmas and New Years; we went for a classic—White (and Denim, haha—it was late notice and my brother and sister-in-law doesn’t live here). Here’s what I wore:

You can judge by my hair length that this in fact is a long over due post. Sorry! haha.

Metro Dept Store Top and Shorts, Parisian Flats, Forever 21 Necklace, Terranova Bangles, SM Dept Store Gold Belt

Family Pictorial

Here are the pictures, incomplete because we just decided on the day, but close enough, haha!

Care For Some Tea?

Hello there! So as mentioned in my last post, I was busy Coordinating events. Last month, I had my last event for the year (last, to focus on school), a Debut with an Alice in Wonderland theme. As coordinators, Andrea and I want to put personalized details, otherwise, it’ll look too stiff and corporate; so when the debutant wanted Teacup Candles for her 18 candles, then Teacup Candles she shall get. And since I don’t know where to find a supplier in time, I made them myself! Here’s a short DIY on how I did it.

image

image

What you need:

-Teacup and Saucer (They chose a plain one because I used colorful waxes (and its hard to find 18 uniform vintage ones), but an old vintage one with floral details is really cute, too!)

-Candle waxes (usually sold by blocks or flakes) or just Candles and get the wicks.

-Wicks (you may use the ones in the candle like what I did)

Not in the picture:

-Chopsticks

-A Double Boiler and Bowl OR a Pot and a Thick Can or an Ice Bucket.

-A Stove

-To color if you have white waxes, use an Oil-based coloring (not water!) or crayons!

Procedure:

So I’m not gonna do a step by step because I lack too much pistures (haha) but basically, what you is boil water in your pot and put the bowl/ice bucket over it. Wait for it to melt, while waiting, get you wick and chopsticks and place it like so (picture below). Chopsticks are so useful! haha.

Then get the ice bucket (make sure you use mittens! They’re hot!) and pour the wax into your teacup. And wait for it to cool down. In case you are wondering what the measuring tape is for, its to get the dimensions of the cup and saucer to know how big the box I was gonna buy. :)

image

Here are the “Product Shots” once they’re all done!

So there you go, Teacup Candles! And if you’re following me on Instagram, then you might have seen the a Flipgram of the debut, if not, you can check it out here or here’s a couple of pictures for you.

Our #ootd with our Black & White Mesh Dresses and opposite sandals. Comfy enough to run around without sacrificing fashion and the theme. We’re Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum!

Some graphic materials Andrea designed for the debutant. Another personalized touch we love doing!

Loud Blossoms

Hello there, here’s a quick back log to the time my hair still had life, i really need to do something with my ugly hair now. I love this floral dress, it’s loud but it’s not over the top. Paired it with my Wine red boots for a simple yet put together look.

Greenhills Dress, Linea Italia Boots, Gifted Necklace (thanks Andrea!)

I’m back from a long hiatus! I can’t promise I won’t be gone again though. Andrea and I ventured into coordinating weddings and debuts, quite a different kind of event organizing but it was still fun non-the-less; we call our company ACE Coordinates. I’ve been busy with event organizing but especially school; my last event this year just took place and I can now focus more on thesis and other school work. We’re not accepting clients again ‘til next year so we can work on passing this course. haha!

Wanderlust

You guys remember this dress? This is what I wore during the Wanderlust Fashion Show of CAFA Week 2013,  and I wear it again for a quick shoot. Here is a “One dress-three way” of this ensemble. Styled by the designer, Andrea Chy.

Look 1: For a crisp look, add on a white cardigan to complete this all white ensemble and gray T-strap low heels for something different entirely. Background complements it greatly, too!

Look 2: A more laid back feel, with “safari” colors, she added a knitted bolero, an over sized hat and some nude wedges. Plus a cutie lion for props!

Look 3: A bad-a** look with a biker jacket, shades and killer high heels.

Here are Facebook links to their  accounts!
Designer: Andrea Nicole Chy

MUA: Alex Eturma
Venue: The Coterie, thanks Jehanne Dy

Hello! I was back-reading your blog posts, and let me just say that I honestly find you as an inspiration. I look up to you by how you handle your stuff- Like studying a tough course, maintaining a good blog, organizing events, running as student council president, modeling, etc. Wow. I hope I could be like that too. I really want to try working with a lot of people- just like you. I wonder how you manage. & I'm also planning to take up arki at USC-TC. Hopefully, I won't chicken out. Hihi.

Hi there! Thank you for the kind words, I really appreciate it <3 As to how I manage my time, its really hard sometimes but all you need is to love what you’re doing and have the will to do it (on time :D). A planner helps, too-A LOT :> See you in CAFA :)

The Coterie

image

I’ve been mentioning Coterie a few times in my last post, so I’m gonna introduce you guys to it. Welcome to Coterie!

image

The Coterie is a store owned by Jehanne Dy, a young entrepreneur and fresh architecture graduate. The store opened last December 18 at the 2nd floor of One Pavilion Mall, R. Duterte St., Banawa, Cebu City. The Coterie is a designer’s boutique, what’s that you asked? A designer’s boutique is a designer’s office and a boutique at once! As its name in French means, a small, often select group of persons who associate with one another frequently. And Fashion’s what brought all these people together.

image

image

image

As some of you guys know, I, too, own an online shop—@love_elevenshop on instagram. Well, my partner and I decided to invest here at The Coterie. We have a rack section where our designs and some RTWs are available!

image

image

image

Aside from Designer clothes and RTWs, UNIQLO, Hong Kong Disneeyland items and more fun items (butingtings) are also available. It is definitely a one stop shop! Not to mention, the items are quite affordable!

image

What I’m wearing: Adina Peplum Top, Bazaar Bandage Skirt, Old Plaid Polo, Forever 21 Shoes and Socks

Been there or going there? Tell me what you got or post a photo of you there! I’d love to see it:) New items are waiting for all of you in time for #Sinulog2014!
