Monthly Obsessions: November 2014

Happy December, everyone! I am happy that the year is about to come to an end because it means that I am only a few weeks away from finishing my last term in uni. Though I am quite scared of the inevitable that is officially becoming an adult with a real job and real responsibilities, I am also looking forward to what 2015 has in store for me.

Anyway, another month has passed and it is time again for my monthly favorites. I have more random favorites than beauty because, I guess, that’s just the way it is.

Damn Denim

Another late post of a shoot we did for our FIP Fashion Styling class last October 11 in Batangas which peg was men’s denim on denim. Shout out to my boyfriend, Matt, for lending me two pairs of denim jeans and to my friend Vince for his denim top! Just a few more of these to come so please bear with me.

Too Girly for the Military

Before anything else, I would just like to mention that I’m skipping on my October monthly obsessions just because I have been using the same products and haven’t tried new ones. Hopefully this month I am able to play with makeup again and review more products for you.

Anyway, this post is definitely long overdue since we shot this way back last October 4. Shout out to my friend Sofia for lending me garments for this shoot and to my mom’s closet, too! Here are the photos of my two layouts from our FIP women’s RTW shoot which peg was military. As you can see, the skirts and the lace somehow still reflected the girly girl in me. To be honest, I am not too proud of this project because I know I could have done better but I still wanted to share it.
