My Awkward Moments!

"Wala kang mapapala if magpa-ulaw ulaw pa ka" 
(nothing will happened if you'll get shy.) kuya Charles commented, 
an alumna of San Pedro College and a good friend of mine. 

Last night, Ashley and I were at the StarBucks, Abreeza. I was sitting on the high chair, chatting with kuya (elder) Charles, while waiting for his girlfriend. Ashley was waiting for her turn to get her coffee. My outfit was a long denim skirts, umbrella cut, paired with a sleeveless gray with diamond designs. I was reading a magazine that time when I saw a couple walking towards starbucks. Actually, the girl's outfit catches my attention. She was wearing a long violet straight cut, long skirt, paired with a gray (blouse inside) and a long sleeve. I told myself, "I thought ako lang ang nag-long skirt" and smiled. When she entered, a lady on black approached her and took picture with her. I looked at them when Ashley suddenly approached me from my back and said: "Ann, Is that Cheyser?"

(^_^) I can't picture myself so blankly. Wew! Actually, it was sooo funny! I'm so innocent as if I don't know nothing at all in this world. It was, then, Cheyser! Actually, I don't know her but Ashley told me that she was a blogger too. Just like Camille Co and Chris Uy. Both of them were at the WAGS (what a girl wants), Abreeza.  Damn! I don't know why but I wasted that opportunity to take pictures with them. Sweet chances but i throw it easily in the garbage can as if nothing happened. Poor Me! I was too shy back then. 

How am I supposed to fight this kind of feeling? A feeling of shyness? A feeling of low self-esteem. What kuya Charles said was true. Nothing will happened if I just sit down in the corner and keep quite. I can't do anything if I won't get rid this shyness inside me.

The couture made by Ronnie Nacua was truly indeed amazing! Every design is marvelous and fabulous.  Fabrics’ texture adds glamour to his creations. The designs are well-imprinted and well-created. Among his creations, this white animal-inspired outfit struck me most. It looks simple yet elegant. The model looks sophisticated with this couture. The head dress looks so floppy with a horn place on the middle of the head. It was paired with a tube and mini skirt played with gorgeous designs. When the model removes her “mini-skirt”, everybody stunned that it can be turned into a lovely bag. The bag is elegant too. That skirt has double purpose! Well, I like the idea of making that “mini-skirt” into a “bag”. I’m thinking, what if I made one too?

I like this one too! (The picture on the right side)The skirt was made of ribbon-like piled together and turned it into colorful designed skirt. It was paired with a native-like belt. It has also a bolero which can cover the shoulders and neck of the model. However, it can also make additional impact to the skirt if you will tie the bolero near your waist.  

The designer made this coutures marvelous. It wasn't just an outfit with a fantastic design but it gives us an idea that it can use in different way. Just like the designer did! He made that skirt into a bag. Actually, in our new generation, a lot of girls made fun with their own clothes too. Some girls made thier high skirts into a tube-dress and paired it with high-waist belt. You can also add some accesories if you want.

Aside from trendy and fascinating attires, the gowns were also stunned that night.  The designs looks complicated and well-detailed.  I was really amazed with those gowns! How I used I could wear them too!

Actually, we can make fun with our outfits! Who say you can't? Open your closet and look what stuff you have. Then think, what do you want to wear for this day. If you made your decision, scan your clothes, paired them up and look yourself at the mirror. For final touches, add some accessories. It must be simple so that it can't be destructive.

One of the models was my co-model from Red Carpet Elite Models and Talents (RCEMT), Richard Te. He was asked by a fashion designer to ramp his couture on the aisle. I'm so proud of him. It's been a while since I didn't see my RCEMT family.Oh! I missed them so badly.
