It was my model friend's daughter's 1st birthday party last week and I just decided my daughter and I had to come in matching outfits! It was perfect timing 'cos right after I bought the red & white hearts cardigan below, someone (my uncle and aunt) gave my daughter a dress with the same print! Sooooo perfect right?! So there we go in our matching outfits. She poses wayyyy better than I do! He-he-he-he!!!!!!! Don't cha think so? :)

My Daughter's 3rd Barbie Birthday Party

Time flies so fast!!!! I can't believe my daughter is already 3 years old! I just remember myself being in labor at the hospital.. and now she's like the most talkative and cutest thing ever! Just a couple of months ago we started teaching her her birthday. E.g. June 15, 2008. So everyday she was would say, "I'm turning 3 on June 15." Little by little, she would insert 'in Jollibee.' Next thing we knew she would always say, "I'm turning 3 on June 15 in Jollibee." That's why just a month ago we placed a down payment for her birthday in Jollibee - her first major decision.

Now as a mom it was my decision to pick her theme... They only had 3 themes available in Jollibee: Transformers, My Best Friend Jollibee, and Barbie. The least BADUY (translation: LAME) was the Barbie theme, so that's what we picked. Plus, she's actually been starting to get into Barbie these past few days (Thanks to the Barbie DVD her daddy just bought her recently). I gave her party a lil oomph by adding the stripes and dots theme for her invitation (including Zebra Stripes or Leopard Spots). Even mentioned that a special prize would be given to the best outfit. Check out her invitation (made by yours truly):



Fast forward to the birthday week.. Had a fashion show the day before so the Polka Dot Topshop dress that I especially reserved for her birthday ended up being used for my fashion show. So on the day of her birthday had to go on a quick and necessary shopping trip (didn't have anything new to wear anymore). Went to F21 and hubby just gave me 20 t o30 minutes to get my outfit. I don't like going shopping with him cos he gives me such a short time limit. The outfit below is the best I could come up with, with that short 20 - 30 minutes time span. The outfit was a subtle mix of two animal prints – a zebra print top and a pair of leopard shoes! My daughter’s dress was a zebra print dress, that's why I really made sure to match with her.


All our other guests participated very well and came in polka dots and stripes too, such as my two uber closest girlfriends Karen(left) and Kristen(right) .



I wish I was able to take more individual outfit photos of my various guests that evening… But I was just way too busy being the party host that I didn’t even get to eat. I also realized way too late that I wasn’t able to take a mother-daughter photo of us two in our matching outfits (except for the cropped pic below)! Boohoo right?! But all good. At least the party went well, and most importantly, my daughter had a blast! :)


She was getting a bit freaked out with Jollibee at this point.

Take Me to A Ball

POPO GO PHILIPPINE FASHION WEEK HOLIDAY COLLECTION 2011
 SPOT ME. I'M 4th FROM LEFT.

Modeled for Popo Go's Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2011 collection just recently. I really love his gowns. They're really flattering on a woman's body, unlike others which look too boxy, or don't cinch the waist snuggly enough. Love the small details too, they really make his outfits jaw droppers.

The shoot was suuuuuper fun! We were about 10 models, and four of us come from the Fashion Watch Faces group so the whole shoot was a big fat Hang Out... with a capital H and O. I was the most boisterous for the day.... Kept cracking jokes and just being silly. I dunno if they slipped some energy drink powder (aka extra joss) into my coke that day....
Here's me:

I'm happy with the shot thie photographer Dharz picked. During the shoot I was tinkering around with the photog's MacBook trying to send myself copies (like 5 to 10 poses of each layout) of the shots I liked. But the internet was acting up so never got to. Its sad when u like a shot of yourself in a shoot.. But doesn't get picked in sacrifice for the overall niceness of the photo. Thankfully the phtographer's pick and mine were one and the same. Hip Hip Hurray! Yay.

My second look:

Group Shot

After the fun and not so tiring photo shoot (as I said, it was a blast), my friend Lou (She's 5th from left in the red/maroon gown) and I headed to a quick Casting for SM Accessories fashion show, which we both got in. Will post about that fashion show and how it went on my next post.

Toodleloo! :)

Funky Fresh



Wore this outfit on a day out with my friend Kristen … I decided to call the outfit FUNKY FRESH, because I randomly told her, “I am wearing a funky fresh outfit today” out of nowhere. And when she actually saw the outfit, she totally agreed that it was funky, fresh, and effortlessly chic. Hahahahahah!! Loved that compliment! Thanks babe!!!

The pants I'm wearing have been mine since 2004 (7 years!!, would u believe?!). The story of the pants: I studied in Spain as a foreign exchange student one summer and those who've been there should know about Bershka. Everyday after class my friends and I would go on shopping adventures to the city center of Santander and go crazy shopping. This was one of my purchases. Haven't worn them in ages, and now that the flared/wide-legged trend is back I decided to take it out of my 'old clothes' box.

I just realized when I wore the outfit that flares/wide legged pants look perfect with wedges, and I also just realized that I've never actually worn flares with wedges ever. So now I know. Take a look at my uber cute floral wedges from Forever 21 peeping out from underneath my pants!!!
