29th Visual Arts Competition Now On

Are you an aspiring young photographer in search of an outlet to showcase your skills with the camera? If you are, then this one is for you! 

Last January 21, 2015, the Philippines Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) and the Directories Philippines Corporation launched the 29th edition of the annual Visual Arts Competition (VAC 29) at  the 4th Flr. Annex of the SM North Edsa.

For the fourth straight year, VAC will once again employ Digital Photography as medium for the competition in its aim to engage the ever growing number of young, highly creative photography enthusiasts.

"Past Meets Present" is the official theme of VAC29, in a bid to inspire the young participants to view the country and its culture in fresh new ways.

To qualify for the competition, participants must be: 15 to 24 years old and currently enrolled in an accredited school in the Philippines. Each participant can submit up to three entries between January 21 to February 24, 2015. 

A grand prize of PHP100,000 cash, a special trophy designed by sculptor Impy Pilapil, a Canon EOS 700 D digital camera for the winner plus a PHP40,000 donation and a Canon PIXMA printer for his or her school is up for grabs!

Manila Sundance

Today's outfit post features a simple monochrome ensemble which I wore at the Manila Sundance Bazaar held at the World Trade Center over the weekend. I love going to bazaars, because they're a great place to score stylish items at pocket-friendly prices! MSB, in particular, is one of those bazaars with a good mix of quality concessionaires that carry virtually everything from clothes, shoes, bags, accessories. 

Check out this chic houndstooth printed skirt  which i scored at the bazaar for a steal! 

This time around, however, I was a partner blogger where I was given my own booth and had the chance to sell some preloved items from my closet. I also had the chance to soft-launch my own line of scents which I am so excited to share with you soon on the blog! Watch out for it!

Outfit details:
Earrings, SHANA
Bangles, HERMES

Do It My Way

I'm not big on retros but this outfit featuring this 'disco' jacket from Zara screams 80s, doesn't it?

To give it a modern take though I wore it with my silvery top, skinnies from Giordano in this year's main color, and black lace up booties. Not the usual classic look, it's a little bad ass today, right?

Outfit details:
Jacket, ZARA
Boots, FOREVER 21
