Print Color Blocking

Monday, May 25, 2015

IMG_3616 This past winter was probably the worse we have ever had. Needless to say, I was indoors most of the time which means lots of free time. Luckily, my auntie was visiting around that time and brought me lots and lots of ankara frabic. I made about ten pieces of clothing from all the stuff she brought and this was one of them.

Hello there! I know its been a while, but, I have a good explanation. I have been seek this past week. Its a mixture of a fever and allergies. As of right now, I have completely lost my voice and can't speak. I hope to get better but in the meantime, here is an outfit I wore earlier today.

Safe Combo

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Black, White and Red always looks good together and a safe combo. It can honestly be boring sometimes which is why I play with silhouettes, textures, and prints when it comes to safe combos like this.
PS. I got a new lens, the sigma 50mm. This is what was used in these pictures. Truth be told...I was frustrated when I first tried it out because I just couldn't get the focus right. The idea is to make the background blurry and the main object in the picture more prominent. I almost returned it after the first weekend but I kept at it and this is the best I did for now. I am sure I will get a hang of it with practice. Tomorrow is my little sister's prom and in addition to doing makeup for her and her friends, I will also be taking their pictures. Hopefully I can practice more.

Ankara Matching Suit

Monday, May 4, 2015

One of my goals this year when it comes to my sewing is to sew stuff that I normally wouldn't sew. I can whip up a skirt and a dress in not time. I have made a pair of pants before but I really didn't like it so I never gave it a try again. I have also wanted to make a blazer or trench but just never got around to it. This is the year, and this outfit is my first of many. It was actually the most difficult thing I have ever sewn, especially the blazer. I made both pieces in bits over a few days. Although I liked the outcome, there are some things I would do differently. Practicing more will get me there.

The Two Piece Effect

Sunday, May 3, 2015

The two piece effect...you know a bodycon skirt with some sort of matching crop top that you have been seeing everywhere?! I actually don't own any pieces in my closet like that because when it comes to my style, I really don't fall for all trends but being someone that loves fashion its only right I give it a shot before I make a final decision on this trend. So for a recent outing, I wore this crop top and bodycon skirt.
