As everyone spends the long weekend out of town with family or friends, I stay home blogging and accomplishing everything there is written down on my to-do list. I've only got a few days left before I head back to my dear hometown, Davao. Can't wait to be reunited with family and friends!
Enough about that. Lets get down to business and talk about the outfit. Well this is something I wore for STACHE, a virtual magazine. The issue is posted at the end of this blog post (turn to page 62). I arrived a bit late for the shoot even if I was rushing to the location after my class. It's just so hard juggle time when you're studying especially in this city where everything is an hour or so away!
The sun set as we finished with the make-up so we had to scout for a place with good lighting. What better place could provide this than a 24/7 convenience store such as Ministop? So yeah. As crazy as it may seem, i stood, smiled, pouted, modeled and posed inside. Everyone was looking but I didn't mind. It was worth the shame. Great thing I had Elisa and Thea with me to at least make it a lil less embarrassing. haha! Everything seemed loud and psychedelic in this ensemble. The electric blue & orange gave a mind-altering feel to the outfit, plus the leopard top and shoes! I opted for a look that differs from my usual warm-colored/dull ones. I wanted something bold and bright and voila! This combo came across my mind. Thanks to my yaya who saw and suggested the blue jacket! Do you like it? :)
Phoenix's Lisztomania is playing as I extract all creative yet dry juices from my body and try to do a blog post that is more on words than photos. I noticed how my recent entries were rather quick, like Pilsbury's one-step hot cake mix! Oh rhyming, noice.K. Back to the song....the beat and vibe fits perfectly with this dad-inspired look. It sounds like a song from decades ago. Dont get me wrong. Phoenix is the shiznit. One of my fave bands.
I remember seeing a similar photo of my father in his big electric-shocked hair, white button down, leather jacket and of course, a pair of good old Ray-Ban's. And I mean the aviators that weigh heavier than his big tummy. HA! So I entitled the look "Young and Free" to acknowledge my his old crumpled photo. I wish I had it with me so I could show it to you but its hundreds of miles away, so nevermind.
The effect I did with the photo is a bit amateur, sorry im no pro I just edit photos according to what looks good in my eyes. But it went well with the whole 60's feel.
Nothing beats wealking in th streets of Davao early in the morning. The breeze is cold, the sidewalk's clean and the air smells like morning glories. Can't wait for September. In half a month I will be back in my hometown again.
Robi Domingo and Celina Mendoza from the Ateneo De Manila University, Adrian Lim from the University of Asia and the Pacific, and Rocky Cudiamat from the University of the Philippines Diliman join together for one most awaited event! The UP Ecosoc Ad Hoc.
I cannot put into words how thrilled I am to be part of this event! (These are just teasers and i will be posting more soon!)
53 yrs of service, excellence and tradition. Remember September because we gave it meaning. -UP Ecosoc Ad Hoc
