Black bootie call

Black bootie call


You would think by now that I am going out of my mind. No, I am still sane and this feature about boots is just the other side of me (lol!). Fashion is a never ending evolution, every year new trends are set and every year our tastes differ. It just so happens that my fetish this time are these booties. Although this is way too far from my comfort zone and I don't know if it is because of my obsessive fashion hunting or the influence of some of my most looked up fashion bloggers. I have to admit though that when I first saw people wearing this type of shoes I thought they find nothing worth spending a dime for so they just wasted it on these peculiar kicks. But I was wrong. 

I was wrong because aside from the hipsterific vibes the youth has today and the dawn of the self-acclaimed "Cool Kids", probably the reason why many are sporting into these things. As for me, an ever devotee of elegant chic made me think twice by perhaps reinventing my fashion by adding some swag on it. But only in one condition; THE BOOTS HAVE TO BE LEGIT. Okay that seems so degrading, but I mean these boots are only cool because they have tags: Alexander Wang, Giuseppe Zanotti, Givency, Dr. Martens, Jeffrey Campbell and Isabel Marant to name a few. These brands are the pioneer of bootie fashion and well they couldn't give more justice to boots than any other brands. 

Hmmm..I think I should get one soon! 

Here are some of my favorite bootie outfits from my most stalked bloggers of all time! Teeheee =)

So what do you think of the comeback of these booties? I wish to be in one of these outfits as soon as I can buy one for myself! :)

Blanc et Noir

Flashbackward. Is there such word? Anyway, midterms is done (yeay!) and I'm glad I still have some
photos to post in my blog. You see I'm quite of a responsible blogger now. These past few days has been so hectic for me especially that I have to read mile long chapters in almost all subjects (but I'm not complaining, God knows how much I love what I am doing). 

Now getting back to this post, this shoot was done a last month for the pageant. We were asked to wear a plain white shirt, jeans and some black pumps. Although we were informed a bit earlier for it, you know nothing works best until the eleventh hour (haha!) so I bought these things the day before.

I chose to wear a polo shirt than the usual V-neck because in some way it straddles between the boundaries of a casual and laid back look, don't you think? And since this shoot was for a big event, you have to look presentable even in a simple outfit. I also bought a high-waist skinny jeans to make me look thinner and my legs longer (such a cheater haha!). And the shoes? I bought them myself from my savings. I told you I was fantasizing on some pointed-to stilettos, so I bought one. I must say nothing made me more confident than these babies. 

Proud to tell you that this photo above was the chose Ms. Photogenic for the pageant! I even have the copy of the photo framed and displayed in our house. Supposedly I would put in inside my room but my mom insisted on placing it in our living room. Haha, my mom is so cute!

Taking Chances

 I just realized how I missed to have a proper introduction of myself when I first officially launched my blog. I know that this is my 100th post now and you may think that it's too late to tell you about the lady behind speak and style but I'd like to grab this chance to tell you who I really am.
 One thing that pushed me to create a blog of my own was when I was too obsessed with lookbook. Lookbook, in case you don't know, is the paradise of the fashionistas where they post the outfits that they wear everyday. Due to my obsession, I've had this personal picks like Anaztasia Siantar, Ebba Zingmark, Andy Torres, Chiara Ferragni, and our very own Camille Co, Kryz Uy, Laureen Uy and Tricia Gosingtian. After few days of stalking them in lookbook, I discovered that they had this blog where they keep it updated daily.
 From that daily stalking, I went on to lusting over what they are wearing, imaginary mix and matching my clothes and dream of that celebrity kind of life. I mean seeing how perfect they are, how nice their clothes are and how pretty they are I just couldn't feel anymore ecstatic and at the same time jealous. That's when I decided to create my own blog last May 2011 (gosh, I can't believe I've had this blog for two years now!). When I made my very first post, I was expecting nothing because I only wish to write my thoughts on fashion and share a part of myself to the world. When I took that chance, I know I'd be only as tiny as dot with all the fashion blogs around in the world. But I love blogging.
I know I am not the active kind of blogger due to class schedules and the lack of places to take outfit shots plus the difficulty in wearing stylish clothes since I study in a Catholic school who is very mindful with what you wear on washdays. But trust me, everyday I'm imagining themes for my imaginary photoshoots and I still continue doing my imaginary mix and matching of clothes. The only way that keeps me going to do blogging is that desire to be like my idols one day. Everyday I still visit their blogs for inspiration but sometimes it ruins my life because I get too overwhelmed with what they are achieving that I tend to rush things up!
 Now, as I remember what I read in Kryz Uy's blog when she first started blogging I realized how similar we are. I learned that she didn't have that much readers too, she was just writing because she was happy doing it. It was not yet full of outfit shots and she was just another dreamer who wishes to make a name in the world of fashion.
I'd like to thank this girl above for making a great impact in my life. She may not know me at all, but her fashion and her blog has helped me know myself and my passion. And I know the odds are too great, but I believe through persistence and hard work, I too, together with this blog will be big years from now. And perhaps somewhere out there, I could be an inspiration for other people. :)

Things I will never Tell Anyone

 1. I am criticizing you in my mind No, I am not judging you. I just have the disease of wanting everything to be perfect even if it will...
