Yves @ work on his creation

Anyone who visits my blog can see that I favour the edgy and the unconventional. I shaved off a quarter of my hair , I wear boots and 5-inchers even while traipsing the city or riding a jeepney, and i infuse a bit of Day-Glo in my closet of black and gray staples--that's just the way I am. I like to play with looks and I refuse to be boring. My choices are not always met with raves, but I don't really think about that simply because I've got a lot ot be thankful for--a working environment where I am judged based on skill, true friends who accept me whether I look fabulous or shiteous, and a boyfriend who sees who I really am through my insane hair. Life may throw me a lot of rocks, but yes, I can't complain. I will carry on being crazy with gusto.

But part of the responsibility I do carry is to clean up and clean up well whenever a gig calls for it. When a hosting job early this month called for me to wear Filipiniana (one of our country's traditional costumes for women) I kind of panicked-I've never worn Filipiniana before so I didn't really know how it was going to pan out. But Yves had exactly what I wanted from a couture show he did in May, and it was just total love. It still followed tradition, but at the same time it went well with the kind of modern minimalism that I prefer. For this one night my feminine sensibilities took over, and it felt like I lived to glide in a gown.. Sheer mania. I wanna do the frou frou again sometime soon.

Thanks for the comments you guys. Between travelling back and forth to seeing the boyf in his island and my horrendous internet at home, it's been kinda hard to bloghop. But I'll do that soon enough, hope you do bear with me. Kisses.
