Fresh

image

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!(•‿•)

image

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!” 😀

image

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.

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!

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

On Didi: silver bustier and US flag bandage skirt, Koreana Shop; denim vest, thrifted; sunnies, Les’ Moda; watch, Guess; sneakers, Juicy Couture

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,

Bye Bye Summer Woes!

image

The heat is really unbearable these past few weeks and as promised, here is a summery outfit update that we would like to share with you guys for you to have ideas on what good-to-go get-ups you could wear to beat the heat. What other good way to be stylish and comfy for summer than wearing sheers, shorts, and dresses?

We had a family bonding at SM City Naga last Black Saturday. As always, we wore matching outfits yet this time, minus the heels and excessorizing to totally feel comfortable.

image

We had a quick shoot at the mall’s parking lot before heading inside.

image

On Didi: sheer top, BobYayin Collections; aztec denim shorts, The Chic Project; Ray Ban sunglasses, borrowed from uncle

image

Shorts are definitely in every summer especially if you have this adorable denim shorts from The Chic Project. Invest on pieces that can be worn throughout the year and we bet shorts can be your best friend.

Didi: “Thank you Mommy Nia for these bangles!”

On Joyce: summer dress, Mom’s; cat-eye glasses, Ikonic

bangles, gift from our fab grandma Mommy Nia

We wore our oh-so-comfy-and-color-yummy Solemate flats we bought at SM months ago. We’re glad that we now have the chance to frequently use them. So summer-appropriate!

One Sweet Saturday

floral

Last Saturday, we decided to have a shoot which is equated with sister bonding. Even though we have loads of school requirements to attend to, we always make sure that we still have time for unwinding that’s why we had this “Satur-date” together. One thing we always put to mind is that we don’t need to deprive ourselves with simple pleasures even in the midst of pressures. It’s great to do yourself a favor, chill, have an ice cream or a cup of coffee after a hard day’s work, and that way you’ll feel fulfilled with what you have accomplished. 

Now for our outfits:

On Didi: floral romper, Koreana Shop; creepers (Joyce’s), thrifted; Nine West sling bag (Joyce’s), thrifted

Didi: “Floral and Neon are two different styles, but when you combine them the right way, they complement each other. Don’t be afraid to experiment once in a while, you’ll never know if you never try.”

Floral Fantasy

Flowers are always beautiful and often exude a girly and cheerful vibe as evidently seen in our quirky photos above. It’s our birth month and we actually expect that September will be a great month for us yet of course, it is up to us whether we would make this month a spectacular or a miserable one. The former, for certain! ☺
