Glitter, Gold, Lace and more.

I have been having quite the busy days in the past weeks and with my school term finishing by next week, the work load aka "drawings, floor plans and terms to memorize" are piling up. Thank goodness we're fortunate enough to have a semester break this school term and I cannot just wait and relax (maybe even shop if my budget permits me too. hehehe)

I had a photo shoot with a dear friend, a week or two ago for her final project for her art class. I was one of her broken doll muses for the shoot which went really well. Fortunately enough, I got the opportunity to shoot with her during the session since I brought my camera, Oly, along with me. It was my first time to take pictures in a studio with lighting and it was confusing at first but overall was a fun time. 

Photographer & Post-Processing: Velire Lugtu
M.U.A.(Make-Up Artist): Elise De Guzman for Sissel, Alyanna & Tine; Grace Ambrocio for Inah, Patch
Models: Alyanna, Sissel, Inah, Patch, Tin

Of course, I have to show my friend's shot of me. We played around with my hair (which took 2 hours to do since my hair is thick and the iron was the thin,small one).

On a completely other note. Hehehe. Last week, I got the chance to attend Glitterati's Prive fashion Series 2010 at the Member's Club last September 1. It was a star-studded event and I do not mean celebrities, I mean bloggers. It was a bit intimidating to see such lovely people there since for one, I hardly blog as much as I used to and school just keeps me on a casual outfit basis lately. :S Nevertheless, I got to chance to mingle with some lovely ladies that night and I do hope that we have a reunion soon! :D

Star struck!!! The gorgeous blooming Denise of Denise Katipunera, the unique and only hippie gal of the night Bestie of The Capricious Club and the flawless, bubbly and sweet Noelle of Noelle Chantal
Photo grabbed from Denise's blog post on the event.
I of course did not go alone considering I'm such a baby when it comes to events like this. Hahaha. So I tagged along my dear friend, Mariz and my bestfriend, Kate (I think you pretty much can recognize Kate now considering she's usually in my posts. hahaha.)
Dresses: thrifted
Shoes: both borrowed from me. Black Tie Up Booties for P400 ($9.00) and Red Pumps for P500 ($11.00)
Accesories: borrowed from me. On Kate, earrings for 5 riyals (P70.00). On Mariz, earrings for P20.


Dress: Mango borrowed from a friend
Shoes: unknown
Jewelry: borrowed and thrifted

Hope y'all being having quite the week too. I'll be blogging soon about a certain event that is drool worthy. ;) Visit soon to find out more!  God bless you. Have a blessed rest of the week loves.

Hugs & Kisses,
Velire
