Gold Rush

Metallics are making a comeback this spring. From New York to Milan to Paris, we all saw the ubiquitous presence of the metallic trend in the 2014 Spring/Summer collections of fashion heavyweights Diane Von Furstenberg, Dolce et Gabbana, Givenchy, Lanvin, and Versace, among others.

Just check out some of the pictures HERE.

So, although I'm not a big fan of midi dresses, I'm making an exception for this one, just because it has the sheen and shimmer that is so into the season.



I also love the halter cut, which is a current favorite of mine as it looks flattering on the shoulders and actually makes me seem taller! 






With a pair of high stilettos, a gold bag and matching gold accessories, this look is perfect for a fancy night out!

An Endless Summer With You

I had the absolute pleasure of shooting today's post in PeƱaranda, Nueva Ecija (a province 145 kms. north of Metro Manila) at a farm owned by my boyfriend, Nicco's maternal side of the family, the Abesamis family.

The two of us had wanted to shoot here for sometime but never had the chance to go back since we visited the place in December 2012. That is, until this weekend, but alas! we were with friends so we only had enough time to shoot one outfit.





And so, we wanted to make it count and decided we would shoot by the banks of the beautiful PeƱaranda River, which traverses the western part of the nearly two-hectare family estate.






I wore this lovely dye print dress with a cross halter frontal top and sexy racer back that gathered into a waistband and flowed down softly to a sweeping floor length. It is the perfect outfit for a lovely morning shoot against such a breathtaking backdrop, don't you think?

If It Means A Lot To You

I love this new floral number straight off the racks of H&M Hongkong.




It has short sleeves and a figure-hugging cut that makes it perfect for both day (topped with a light, cotton cardigan) and night wear. It has a small V neckline and slightly lower back that gives it just the right amount of sexy.



Here, with my favorite black strappy sandals, this beautiful Givenchy Nightingale Mini bag, and the barest black accessories, this look needs not much else but confidence to standout.
