Remedy

If you’re following me on Twitter, you might have had the clue that I recently went to a fun shoot with a good friend of mine – NJ. Out of the blue, she tweeted me that she wants to come here to Naga just to have a shoot and I was like: “Why not?”. Being a woman of her word, she traveled all the way from Albay the next day – A for effort!

image

I prepared three outfits for the shoot and this set is my favorite.

See what I did there? You could just imagine how much I brought out the carefree child in me again. It’s in times like this that I feel like I’m still in kindergarten not worrying about nerve-wracking school stuff and just choosing the right shades for a page in a coloring book instead of comprehending a zillion of complicated theories for my thesis.

Versatile

Let’s take a break from the usual styles you see me wearing. What I’m truly proud of is the fact that even though I have my personal style, I still challenge myself to try new ones. Versatility – the key ingredient to keep you dear readers interested.

When A-Fash decided to have “Hip-hop” as our theme, I was very excited because I know I can pull off this style easily. No sweat! I can easily change from the blouse-skirt-heels to the harem bottoms-plus-sneakers type of girl.

What I’m wearing: DC snapback, borrowed from Ava; denim vest, neon top, and harlem pants, thrifted

leather band, Tomato; neon green  bracelet, Kikay’s Kit; blue skull bracelet, CaLee Shoppe

I really like wearing snapbacks not just because it’s a lifesaver during bad hair days but because it  also give swag to an outfit. (•‿•)

How do you like my take on hip-hop? Comment away!

P.S. I want to thank those who prayed for me and wished me good luck for my title defense last July 28. Your prayers and sincerity worked because my partner and I received a grade of 97. Yey! That’s something to celebrate about, isn’t it? Thanks guys! 

 

Love,

Didi

Comeback

image

We’re Frances Joyce and Frances Claudine Vasquez a.k.a. Joyce and Didi; we’re sisters and fashion bloggers and we just came back from the afterlife. We deem it necessary to reintroduce ourselves coz it’s been like forever since we last published an outfit post and yes, we do apologize. How are you guys doing? It’s been a delightful summer to the both of us. We had respective commitments and we were productive. Joyce is still unemployed but overall, she’s happy. Didi’s done with her internship and is already bracing herself for her final school year. 

image

In the course of our hiatus, we received a couple of messages and tweets regarding our comeback post. We felt so loved and so we dedicate this bright and breezy outfit post to you guys coz we’re a firm believer that clothing can potently express feelings much the same way as words and actions can. This was shot at the Haciendas de Naga poolside when we had our summer-ender bonding with our aunt and cousins. Oh how bad we missed posing for the camera and we’re actually finding the right words to type right now. It’s been more than a month since we last updated Frances and Flair and the breather really proved that fashion blogging is really a part of our system now that not being able to blog makes us incomplete. Thank you for being patient and supportive.

Joyce: “My outfit screams SUMMER HANGOVER. I chose a vibrant orange bustier and pastel-colored shorts which I think made a cute combo. I tied the denim top on my waist to add some attitude.”image

Didi: “I’ve been envying Lookbookers on their seamless outfit posts wearing denims, bustiers, and printed skirts so I decided to combine all three as my outfit of the day. I feel like I’m a laidback rocker chick heading to a concert when I’m actually to dive in a wave pool. But hey I changed into my trusty bikinis after this shoot, just in case you’re bemused.”

 

We hope you’re pleased with our revival. As they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder and we hope that in this particular case, it rings true.

Always,

Blues

Denim might literally fade, but figuratively, it won’t. To make it your outfit’s staple piece is easy and we’re going to show you two ways to wear it – whether you’re going out in a cheery vibe or in a smart casual motif.

We just love how the refreshing hues lighten the uptight mood caused by our busy schedules. Trust us, dressing up is instant therapy. ❤

On Didi: denim button-down top (Joyce’s), thrifted; galaxy leggings, Koreana Shop, Doc Martens-inspired boots, thrifted

Didi: “It was an achievement that I was able to pull off this get-up at school. It’s one of the major fashion risks I took since this ensemble isn’t my usual style. I survived! Haha!”
