What I Wore: Summer Soiree, and then Some

1:31 AM

Hey all, lovelies! Weekend is almost wrapping up, and hope its been FANTASTIC for you.

My sincerest apologies for some things: 1) not being able to post for like 3 days, and 2) not being able to get back to your comments. I'm incredibly swamped with stuff this week. So many events to attend, so many articles to finish, meetings to go to as well.. hard to believe, the only reason why I'm able to plop my butt here to write this is because I just have a breather of about an hour. I have two photo shoots to attend to this afternoon. Seriously wack, right? I promise regular programming will be back though in a few days.:)

Got invited to one of the city's ultimate summer shindig-- the exclusive Summer Soiree by top swimwear specialist Speedo and Ayala Center Cebu. It promised to be a night of tribal beats, cocktails, beautiful summer fashion, and equally gorgeous people, a hot summer night if you may.. but ironically it rained heavily just when things were really heating up, and it dampened the mood of the event (as it was outdoors). Still, great production, and I had a fun time.

I found this AMAZING chiffon caftan just few days before the show-- a lucky break, considering i was looking for something exactly like it. The colours and the flowy, breezy cut reminded me so much of Esteban Cortezar's SS09 collection for Emanuel Ungaro, which I LOVED tremendously.

Definitely feels like this skirt..

Pardon the crazy antics, I just enjoyed attempting to do the chacha and whirling my skirt around. hahah. we got a few good laughs from this one!

The "boys", Yves and Brylle were definitely channeling Miami Vice, a slinkier, more dapper toast to summer:

And oh, finally posting the outfit that I wore to Mary Ty's show. Sad part about still NOT having your camera is waiting for your equally busy friends to upload their camera photos. Unfortunate, But its better than nothing.:)
