Good Dress Up Denim X Tweed X Denim. ELENABLOG


Tweed Blazer, Forever 21 | Denim Dress, Forever 21



Gold Cuff, Hiss Bliss

Wedges, Forever 21






Forgot to post about this one. haha! This is what I wore last SUITEBLANCO launching at SM Aura. The dress code says 'summer', unfortunately the weather's not being so cooperative that time so I opted to wear this floral denim dress and layered my tweed blazer. I never thought tweed and denim could go together! They're both heavy fabrics, so I think the key is to wear it in different shades. Wear one in a lighter shade and one in a darker shade. My denim bag goes with this outfit as well! Excuse my low res photos, it's quite dark around fort that time. hihi Thanks Kai for taking them!

Sorry for this late blog post, I've been so busy with job applications and interviews lately. I don't know why but I'm beginning to panic about the fact that I'm still fUNemployed hihi. I'm starting to hate the bum life. I want a permanent job and earn already. haha! Some of my friends tell me it's okay, you're going to miss that life when you start working, but I'm an outgoing person. I love being busy. Yes it may be tiring and I might miss it but I want to be challenged already. I have a few prospects, but of course, I'm still waiting for call backs. I hope I'll land a job soon! Wish me luck!:)

Good Dress Up Smart Mega Pinoy Pride Ball. ELENABLOG

*Pinch me*

Feels surreal to be invited in one of the most fabulous event of the year, The Mega Pinoy Pride Ball 2013. First of all, I'd like to thank Veet Philippines and Megastyle.ph for making this possible. I didn't just attended the ball, but I also got to wear this lovely Avel Bacudio creation. 

Manila's most elite and fashionable were present for this prestigious event last June 12, 2013 at the Rizal, Ballroom, Makati Shangri La Hotel, also in celebration of the Philippine Independence Day. I think this is the most glamorous way of celebrating Philippine Independence, don't you think?


One sleeve, thigh high slit embellished gown by the great Avel Bacudio.

You can now flaunt your sexy legs when wearing your skirts, shorts and fabulous dresses! Pull off thigh high slits like this one!:)

Thank you Veet Philippines for this amazing opportunity!

So honored to meet the one and only Avel Bacudio. He's super friendly and what I adore the most is behind all the success, he still keeps his feet on the ground. Thank you so much Avel, it's was lovely to meet you! And of course, thank you so much for this fab gown! :)

This is what I wore last Bloggers United 5! Since I'm part of the BU5 team, I know we're going to be busy so I wore something comfy yet chic. I wore sneaker wedges during the morning because I can't manage to run around and man the registration booth at all times wearing this sexy pair of heels. I just wore this later that afternoon. I seldom pull off this look, the "Grunge" look. I always look so glam and girly so I'm really excited to wear this ensemble that day. 

By the way, don't you just love my jacket? It's vintage! I got it from my Grandmother! She has the nicest clothes! Notice the *yaman look* that this jacket brings haha!

And of course, my newest favorite is my SUITEBLANCO purse!!! The salmon pink and gold went really good together! The purse looks so lovely :( :) haha! Don't forget to check out SUITEBLANCO at SM Aura Premier! I swear, they have really nice and unique clothes! Plus, they're super affordable!:)

What's your BU5 outfit? Lemme see! Comment your links below!:)

BTW, I'll be blogging about a play from Dulaang UP entitled, 'Adarna'. Stay Tuned!:)
