Cuddle Me Baby

image

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! 

image

Who wouldn’t love Christmas? The 3-year-old-me would be just as happy as everyone else. 

image

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! (•‿•)

image

image

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! 

image

What I’m wearing: cross pullovers and booties, thrifted; tights, SM Department Store

image

I love the aztec-cross print on this pullovers. It gives the edgy vibe on the outfit. ☺

image

image

Its my first time to wear this kind of booties, did I pull it off well?

The Woman and The Dress

image

Every semester, Ateneo de Naga University holds its University Dress-Up Day where all of the students are encouraged to attend their classes in business attire. 

image

For this semester, I decided to get my inspiration from the iconic Audrey Hepburn (hence, the pose. Haha!). Of course, when you say “Audrey Hepburn” its all about grace, elegance and style. I always pictured her in one piece monochrome dresses which fits perfectly to A-Fash‘s monochrome theme. 

image

I kept my outfit simple yet fab because for Audrey being “less is more”. 

image

image

image

Audrey’s look was always unmistakably well groomed and neat. Thus, to completely achieve the look, I tied my hair to a bun. I also used Chanel-inspired pearl hairpins for my hair. Pearl hairpins plus pearl earrings – pretty much ala Breakfast at Tiffany’s. (•‿•)image

Primadonna heels

I got really humbling compliments for my outfit. Some said I also looked like Blair from Gossip Girl, while most of my friends teased me that I must be a flight stewardess! LOL. But what’s really extraordinary about this dress is its price. I bet you won’t believe me when I say I got this dress for only 35 pesos! Yeah, the magic of thrift shops! SUPER steal right? 

Well, this is one proof that we don’t need to spend a lot of money for good looking clothes. The brand and the price of what you are wearing is not really necessary. Remember what Yves Saint Laurent said: “What is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.”

Hope you dig this post! Don’t forget to hype my look:

A Skirt Story

image

Skirts are carefree clothing; they are the type that liberate us from the constraints of tight jeans, legwear, and the like. Talking about liberation, we were set free from our regular stressful classes last Thursday because of Ateneo de Naga’s semestral Alternative Class Program. It’s a day we always anticipate because we get to choose a topic we would participate in plus the big perk is you’d meet awesome speakers of their respective expertise. image

We chose the talk entitled I DREAM to blog the clutches and blotches of my everyday life” by our fellow Bicolana fashion blogger, Ate Daf Benosa of Metamorphosis. We were really delighted that we finally met her because she’s one of our fave fashion enthusiasts. She comments often on our outfit posts which always makes our day. Ate Daf is indeed someone to look up to – charming, intelligent, and very humble. Thanks Ate Daf for the knowledge you have shared to us; we would definitely live them out. 

image

Our A-Fash sisters Pam and Danica were also in the session and we were all smiles after Ate Daf’s inspiring talk. It’s really a great thing that we have already established a bond with these ladies who share the same interests. Connections like this really matter to us.

Hodgepodge

2nd post

We’re officially enrolled for the second semester here in Ateneo de Naga University. Didi’s on her third year as a BS Psychology student and Joyce is on her senior year as an AB Development Communication student. 

STATISTICS

We’re good at juggling everything around – we spend quality time with our family, we have a wonderful social life, we passionately maintain this fashion blog and enhance our respective skills, and yes, we are very diligent students. Life is a hodgepodge; you just have to awesomely deal with it. 

DSC 3111

Fashion blogging enabled us to try a hodgepodge of styles as we always do ‘coz we really never stick to a single fashion type alone. We experiment and take risks and we’re never afraid to do so. Because of fashion blogging, we learned how to carry ourselves better and to simply don’t mind about what other people think ‘coz we know that what they see is only superficial; our sheer beauty goes way beneath these clothes and is something people cannot destroy.

Don’t you just love these unique bottlecap accessories? They’re from Hodge Podge. Their cutie patootie (Didi’s fave expression btw) pieces can instantly jazz up an outfit. Here are some of our fave designs that can be customized to any adornment of your choice – necklace, ring, earring, pin or badge, magnet, keychain and bookmark. The best thing? You can also make your own design and have them create it exclusively for you, not to mention that the prices are really affordable!

It was a great chance chatting with her and we got so astounded when she made us choose about 15 pieces from her array of accessories! She takes inspiration from European fashion bloggers and the best news? Her items are priced on a student-friendly basis! The items above are what we wore to jazz up our neon outfits.

We had a great day today despite the fact that the College of Arts and Sciences did not make it to the top three colleges in the over-all results of this year’s ADNU Intramurals. Nevertheless, we are still so proud of the students who exerted exceptional efforts in the various activities. Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam!

Our dearest friends amplified our enjoyment and with enjoyment, we mean the all-out cheering and support to our college. It’s amazing how we look so fresh in the photos amid the unpleasant temperature in the covered courts.
