It's Just a Little Romance

Today on the blog I am featuring this stunning jumpsuit from the international collection of Shana.

I don't know about you but I happen to love jumpsuits. I love that it could be dressy like this one, or a bit more casual like the one I wore in my previous post. Often, it takes just the right kind and amount of accessories to give the look the elegant touch. Here, I am wearing a beautiful gold necklace and tri-color purse also from Shana.

I'm glad that jumpsuits have become one of the top fashion staples that it is right now. It was certainly one of the more dominant trends to emerge from the resort collection of all the top fashion brands this year and it certainly looks like it is here to stay through autumn-winter 2014.

Head over to Shana at Robinson's Magnolia, Shangrila Plaza, and Glorietta 5 and check out their international collection for more elegant pieces like this one, captured so wonderfully in these photos by streetstyle photographer extraordinaire, Teban aka Asian Impressions
Check out his amazing photos on Instagram!

Down the Cobblestone Alley

Today on the blog I am featuring the first of a series from an ongoing collaboration with ace streetstyle photographer, Teban or more popularly known as @asian_impressions on Instagram

I believe it was late last year when I connected with Teban on Instagram. We admired each other's work and often expressed hopes we could one day work together. But since he is based in the US while I'm in the Philippines, I didn't think it was going to happen any time soon. So imagine my excitement when he said he was going to Manila and if I could set a few hours for a photoshoot. If I could? I'd set aside whatever for that chance!

And so, here below is the first installment of the work we did. Luckily, the rain gods heard my silent prayers to stay away from the picturesque Intramuros area where we shot. The sun god, however, decided to show off so it was a challenge to find a spot where its rays were not boring down on our skin! We found the perfect spot along this alley near Casa Urdaneta right across historic San Agustin Church.

Needless to say, the chance to work with Teban elevated to new heights the already esteemed regard I have for his work. Can you tell I had difficulty narrowing down the number of pictures to post?

Today on the blog, we're playing a little game of peek-a-boo with this classic yet sexy blouse and skirt ensemble from ILoveNLClothing.

Who hasn't caught the mesh fever all season long, anyway? I know I caught the bug earlier on when I did a three-part series late last year on different ways to wear my favorite button down mesh top. So, I've actually carried on this little love affair with mesh for nearly a year now! 

This one is a little more understated with sheer details on the top's neckline and on the skirt just above the hemline. It's the best way to show just a bit of skin but with the stylish and elegant touch that I like. 

To complete the look, I used this pair of elegant studded danglers from Shana and a black envelop purse. There! I'm all set for my dinner date!

Outfit details:
Top and skirt, I LOVE NL CLOTHING
Earrings, SHANA
Heels, FOREVER 21
