First blog post of the year! Yay! *fireworks* Haha. ☺ I’m starting the year right with what else? Dressing up.
For the first themed shoot of A-Fash, we decided to inject our New Year’s resolution to our outfits. Cool right? It really took me quite a while to think of how I can incorporate the two together and I ended up with symbolism (ang deep). (•‿•)
Do you now have an idea of what symbol I used? If you didn’t get it yet, it’s all on the skirt. Yeah, those are clocks which obviously symbolize time.
Not being dramatic and all but what I plan to do this year is to seize every second I have. I want to spend it meaningfully because no one can tell what could start, what could end and what could be given a second chance.
I’m cherishing every moment in college because in less than two months time, I’ll be done with my studies. Well, it’s great to finally graduate but it also scares me to face the new world.
I’m spending a lot of time now with my college friends and the person dearest to me because for sure we’ll part ways after graduation. That’s just sad but I know I can do this, so bring it on! Haha!

Hope you liked the outfit and its ‘madramang’ meaning. LOL! Watch out for the next post guys. ❤
It’s the last day of 2013, and I intend to give you a perfectly fit year-ender post. Here’s the second set of photos from my shoot with NJ (if you missed the first one, checked it out here) which I really really love! The sun gave a dramatic mood to the photos; hence, the glow. (•‿•)
2013 was a good year for me and I certainly think 2014 will be much better. Optimism alwaya does wonders. ♥
What I’m wearing: dainty collared top, thrifted; high waisted shorts, Thrifting Treasures; wedges, Primadonna
My new year’s resolution? On top of my list is getting back into shape, just like in these photos. I’m starting to regret my impulsive and excessive eating these past few months. Haha! Diet plus working out will be my first ‘to-do’ activity this 2014 *fingers crossed*.

I won’t end the year without being grateful for all the people who have made my 2013 more meaningful. I don’t wanna sound cheesy but I take immense pleasure in thanking all of you esp our dearest readers! Cheers! ❤
2014, as the book Looking for Alaska puts it, could be “The Great Perhaps”. If you guys are wondering how my Tete Joyce is doing, she’s peachy keen and I’m spending the holidays with her here in Manila. Watch out for a solo blog post from her soon. She’ll surely make it comeback-worthy! Happy New Year everyone! ☺
Hope you like the photos! And by the way, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram (@francesclaudine)!
A-Fash has gone sporty! I’ve been itching to share with you this outfit. It’s my favorite one so far, so enjoy the rest of the photos guys! (•‿•)
Maybe some of you will think “This isn’t sporty.” Well, I decided not to stick with the usual sporty look wearing the typical rubber shoes or so; instead I gave it a twist by injecting formal pieces to the outfit. Fashion upgrade! ☺

My style inspiration for this look is Andy Torres and Camille Co who both are very fond of experimenting with different looks. I just love their versatility! ❤

floral cap, Forever 21
My newest favorite item on my closet made its debut on our blog! This floral cap definitely adds the bad*** vibe on any outfit. You will definitely see more of this baby here because I have a feeling I’ll use it more often. Haha! Thank you Tete for this! ❤
Hope you like this outfit as much as I do! Comments are much as loved!
Hi Jem! Familiar ka nga. 🙂 Anyways, thank you for following us! 😀 -Didi
Hello December! Finally the happiest and most colorful month of the year has come and you certainly know what that means – Christmas is just around the corner! Yey!
Who wouldn’t love Christmas? The 3-year-old-me would be just as happy as everyone else.
There will be gatherings here and there, presents, and food! Of course everyone will be preparing sumptuous feasts so I’ll be ready for additional pounds. *Ghad.. I’m getting fat.* Haha! (•‿•)
Now lets talk about the outfit. There’s no better way to fight the cold breeze than wearing a pullover then match it with tights and boots. I tell you you’ll have a feeling you have a second skin. Haha! Perfect for the cuddle weather!
What I’m wearing: cross pullovers and booties, thrifted; tights, SM Department Store
I love the aztec-cross print on this pullovers. It gives the edgy vibe on the outfit. ☺
Its my first time to wear this kind of booties, did I pull it off well?

Hope you enjoyed my post! Enjoy the rest of December guys! Love, love!
I know I’ve been sharing with you my thesis journey here in our blog, and I want to share with you another achievement we’ve just made – we’re finally done with our data gathering process! We’re halfway in finishing our paper and I couldn’t be any happier for that! *applause please* Haha!(•‿•)
A-Fash had our first shoot for the second semester and I’m really looking forward to our Wednesday routine. By the way, I met up with a respondent before these photos were taken and notice I still managed to look fresh. Maybe because of the instant freshness my outfit brings and a little help from my make-up kit. Haha! As my Tete (Ate Joyce) would always say, “Uhuh! Freshness of Downy!” 😀
I’ve been asked so many times about my daily make-up ritual. Well, I tell you I spend a lot of time in front of the mirror before going out – 30 minutes tops. Not that I’m into artificial beauty but looking good and prepped is a way of how you’ll present yourself to the people you meet, and that makes an impression. Remember this: Cosmetics are made to enhance beauty not to conceal them.
What I’m wearing: top, Thrifting Treasures; floral pants, Aeropostale
neon green bracelet, Kikay’s Kit; wooden beads bracelet, Rainbow Tropics; watch, Guess
Maybe I could do a separate blog post for my beauty essentials, what do you think guys? Comments are loved!☺
We’re just the ones who showed up for the shoot – the pioneer batch: Danica, Yen, Sam and me. After the shoot we went out for a date-slash-bonding-slash-meeting. It was nice to catch up with these ladies!
