Through My Kaleidoscope

Today on the blog, I'm wearing this lovely floral print tube dress from TJ Maxx.

When you are in the midst of a particularly busy day with a series of events and photo shoots scheduled, and the weather and monstrous traffic are not cooperating, what better way to pick up your mood and lift your spirits and energy than a lovely dress like this one?

Perhaps it was the colorful print or the perfect fit or both! 
Whatever it was, this dress totally gave me a much-needed energy boost and a perfect reason to smile!
I just love dresses like this, don't you?








This particular shoot was done in the afternoon, after a rigorous morning schedule, and the location although it looks perfect in the pictures, was not in the original plan. We were happily all set up in the gorgeous roof deck of the Vera Studios, against the majestic backdrop of the Manila Cathedral. Alas, a sudden downpour forced us to seek cover, change my damp outfit, and look for an alternative location. Thankfully, Vera Studios, not only has a spacious indoor studio but the building itself and the surrounding area of Intramuros, has a lot to offer in terms of alternative backdrops.
