Down the stage

Corset: Promod
Trousers: Maldita
Heels: Gibi
Necklaces: Forever 21 and WE Empire

Rings: Gifted

Threw on this 5 minute ensemble when I woke up to the car's engine and my mom telling me that we're later for my little brother's graduation. As usual, I was cramming. So, aside from not being able to take a bath (not proud), what I got to pull out was an all gray outfit, and just threw on pretty little trinkets to break the monotony. (I seriously need more accessories for more choices. I'm such a thrifty blogger! Thrifty or broke? whatever suits you. Haha. )Trousers are still my go to outfit when I want to look my age (look the part, ate). Haha. I guess I'm a trousers lady-- I' wear them in any cut or shape! Its both stylish, laid back, and on the go, agree? :) Also went off to shoot for BLINDxx later... have you seen our editorial yet? :)

Congratulations, Kristoff my baby. You made me cry from the benches, big boy.

Secrets at Sea: A Summer Editorial

BLINDxx creations present:

PHOTOGRAPHED: Matt Aesthetic
STYLISTS: Dawn Sy, Ninz Sy
MODEL: Jessika Knight

The sea.

 A threshold of all my secrets
My company in this tranquil solace

This sea.
Where lost ships live
and treasures

lay hidden.
where secrets and shadows lay dreaming.


I hope you like the editorial we made just for you guys. Leave a comment and tell us what you think maybe?:)  
I'd like to take this opportunity to also thank Matt, James, and Jess for being so kind as to doing this collaboration with us. Matt seems intimidating online but is a fun and warm person in the flesh, a super gifted all- natural fashion photographer whose sense of taste fits mine oh so perfectly (and shoots really fast!). James is a foxy and bubbly fairy god mother whose wands are his brushes, Im not exaggerating (keks and pastries-- right James?). And Jess, aside from being just plain beautiful, is probably the most candid model I've worked with-- she looks high profile but my god she changes in the car, wears and takes off anything, stands on nasty rocks, walks thru soil barefoot and happily does it all without a single complain. And she does all these while sober. :)) Im seryaaas, couldn't ask for a better team on this particular project!

Don't forget to check out the official catalogue tomorrow at 8:30!
Aaaand here's to the team. (Ninz behind camera) :

BLINDxx Creations opens on Summer 2012! :)

Exactly 10 months ago, my sister Ninz and I (out from the immense love for fashion and the cute but honest desire to make our own living) opened Blind Clothing. What has long been an amusing idea in my head turned out to be an online reality on that 27th of May 2011. It was a product of our giddy late night talks over sheets and pillows. :)

10 months, and BLINDxx has been working its own way up slowly but surely providing personally hand-picked and styled classy, wearable, trendy but timeless and affordable items that cater to any fashion forward girl's sometimes-impulsive-appetite. (Raise your hands, guilty people!)

This March, BLINDxx takes it a step further as it branch out to its own creations line. From BLINDxx picks, we introduce BLINDxx creations. BLINDxx creations carry limited edition, ready-to-wear pieces that are premium designed and sewn in-house, blind style.
Summer is every fashionista's christmas... a celebration from the most talked about in-season pastels, to the color block and print that a lot of us still can't get over. That's why it is our season of choice. 

Join us as we launch BLINDxx creations with an editorial entitled : SECRETS AT SEA
featuring the clothes from our creations line with 4 pioneering simple but flattering designs-- in different colors, with not more than 2 pieces per item. It is also with great pride and fabulous honor that we announce that this is in collaboration with our favorite young trail blazers in the local scene: Matt Aesthetic and James Canete.

As much as I was itching to post more, I can only leave you with this dear readers. :))
Straight from Matt's Screen. Love, yes?

You are invited! In sisterly lovin, Join us in the ff:

Color Me Precious

Top: Thrifted (Thank You, Wendy! :P )
Skirt: Mom's vintage hidden treasures
Heels: Gibi
Belt: SM Dept Store

Talk about a really inexpensive outfit! :P Booya!

Last Sunday, while the parents were abroad, I was mom. And I tried to look the part.

Threw on this quick and fuss-free outfit where I color blocked in jewel tones.
I loooove jewel tones, especially when incorporated with drapes (not this one though) because personally I think jewel tones (like emerald, Ruby, Amethyst, Saphire, etc ) have an instant elegance to them, or maybe it's just my princess frustrations. The colors are rich and dense in a way I couldn't quite explain but am very much drawn to. I remember my debut dresses when I turned 18 being purple and wine to burgundy-- royalty colors, jewel tones. :)

I think aside from the colors being the center of attention here is the silhouette of my skirt and the texture of my top that I almost did not accessorize, and I actually enjoyed the minimal feel. :))

Quick post. Have some serious writing to do.
God, help.
Goodnight, Kids!
