Good Dress Up Freeway X Lucio San Pedro. ELENABLOG

FREEWAY x Lucio San Pedro's Music

Known for its collaboration with different renowned Filipino artists, Freeway is honored to launch the National Artist Collector�s Series for Fall 2013.  Freeway celebrates Lucio San Pedro's 100th Birth Centennial with the brand's collection of awe-inspiring pieces beaming with Filipino pride. It�s no surprise that the 9th National Artist chosen to pay homage for this series is a man full of talent and ingenuity. Lucio San Pedro, National Artist for Music, is a great Filipino composer and teacher. Known for his composition of the widely popular lullaby �Sa Ugoy ng Duyan� (in collaboration with another National Artist, Levi Celerio) and the symphonic poem �Lahing Kayumanggi�, Lucio San Pedro has paved the Pinoy world of music with plenty of his beautiful compositions bearing national soul. For the collection, it is composed of a wide array of casual to work tops and dresses using fabrics such as satinized twills, matte charmeuse, poplins and knits.  The unique cuts and styles made out of different fabric combinations are carefully crafted to flatter the woman's figure without sacrificing comfort by using mostly stretch fabrications. As for its visual prowess, the collection combines floral inspirations with hand drawn lines and curves fused with lyrics and titles of San Pedro�s famous orchestra pieces. Colors range from the basic black and white to subtle tones such as beige and teal. Certainly, these pieces are made to capture the essence and mark of the Filipina's modern beauty.









Match the Freeway x Lucio San Pedro pieces with footwear from JANYLIN (www.facebook.com/Janylinshoes) as seen in the campaign photos.

Good Dress Up Chic Athletic Sparkly. ELENABLOG

Philippine Fashion Week Day 3/ Superb Bazaar Day 3 outfit! I-aachieve ko talaga ang sparkles the whole week.haha I feel so athletic in this outfit. I think it's because of the shorts and the sneaks. Wanted to pull off the athletic look but I turned out to be more glam and girly more than athletic hihi. I think it's because of the sparkles. My friend, Cams even told me I could pass as a beacon in this outfit. They can see me from afar. :))

This is my Superb by SuperSale Bazaar/ Phil Fashion Week Day 1 outfit. Feeling a bit lazy to dress up so I opted for a top and skirt ensemble. To break the ice, I wore this sequined top so I won't look too plain. I also opted minimal use of accessories and just wore this pair of gorgeous earrings from SM Accessories! Such a great find!:)

 Watched the show with my fellow bloggers, Aisa, Joed, Ana, Christine, Arnie, Kelly, Tracy and Paul. (Thanks ARC PR for the photo!)

So I chose my favorite ensembles from the show. Take a look :)

Don't you just love the vibrant colors joined together? The neon blazer and blue pants look so well with the printed top!:)

Another trend that I love, the printed suits!! I'm definitely buying this from SM Ladies Wear!:)

Good Dress Up My Playsuit for Playspace. ELENABLOG

Hiiiii! (in my most giddy tone)
I've missed posting personal stuff in my blog! I'm actually excited to post this one! Again, I'm sorry for the blogging hiatus. I think it's been a month since I've posted something of my own. I'm just enjoying summer and by summer I mean bumming out LOL and doing 'adult' stuff like getting 'adult' i.d.s, and of course job hunting hihi. I'm unemployed, single and having fun! I'm actually not rushing things right now, it's my last summer without thinking about school and not stressing out about anything so I might as well have fun and wait for the serious stuff to happen.

So about this look, this is what I wore at the Playspace event by Acer. I wasn't able to attend Playspace Day 1 because of prior commitments so I was only able to attend Day 2. I asked my friend Jonard on what to wear for the event and he just said "artsy chic". haha He's not serious but I took it seriously and this is what I came up with. I'm keeping myself from wearing jeans/pants. The scorching heat in Manila is unbearable and I cannot force myself to wear clothes that seals in all the heat in my body. I opted to wear my bodycon skirt, a simple black top and this denim vest to brighten up the look. I'm going to commute so I can't risk in wearing heels and I'm too lazy to bring extra shoes so I wore my sneaker wedges! Makes me feel so tall and 'commute friendly' at the same time!;)


Black top- Ensembles | Black bodycon skirt- SM GTW| Sneaker Wedges- Forever 21


Thank you Paowee Castillo for sending me these photos and for Jonard Palteng for taking them.

Some photos during the event!

My favorite speakers! Awesome underwater photographer Mr. Gutsy Tuason and Christina Tantengco Editor in Chief of http://www.kamustamagazine.ph/ :)


and of course the much awaited UP DHARMA DOWN!!!

Fan girling at it's finest!:)








 The event was awesome and educational. We learned a lot of stuff from the guest speakers. The concept of Playspace is to play and learn at the same time. They provided us with party poppers, bubbles, pen, paper, notebook and they also hosted games to keep us entertained. Mad props to Acer for having an event like this!

So there, I'm back to blogging! I promise to keep you guys updated and sorry in advance because I'm planning to post backlogs but don't worry I'll keep it interesting. Another thing, I'm in the process of putting up my own clothing line and will sell it online soon! I'll keep you guys posted!:)
