black + white + gray
(Catalogue 63 square tee, Space shorts, from China gray thigh high socks, Five by Five harness boots, Forever 21 cross necklace and hat, Quirkypedia connector ring, Plusminustimesdivide spikethrough ring) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Interesting how I could go back to wearing something like this after all the floral-printed stuff recently. A few weeks ago, when I finally got...
Diesel Jogg Jeans
(Diesel Jogg Jeans, Sundae top, from Korea shoes and accessories) Hype this look on Lookbook here. I can finally post this super old outfit photo from June because the campaign is finally up on Diesel’s website. Diesel’s Jogg Jeans are a brand new kind of garment, a high tech hybrid between jeans and sweat pants that merges the best of each: denim’s coolness and resistance and...
Just G: Floral on Floral
(Just G top, skirt, jacket and necklace, Forever 21 ring, Feet for a Queen wedge booties, wig from Catwalk) Hype this look on Lookbook here. It’s rare for me to mix prints together, especially if it’s leopard on zebra on snake or something similar. Floral print on floral print is a total exception though. I tried making this print-on-print trend more dolly and granny (Pretty...
brown + pink
(H&M blazer, Greenhills top, from HK tutu and ruffly socks, Finch Jeffrey Campbell Gallatin-inspired shoes, Forever 21 ring) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Gloomy days don’t necessarily make my love for nude/blush tones disappear. <3 Thanks to Japanese Candy for my Bambi Chocolate circle lenses. My make-up here is a lighter, more wearable variation of my recent tutorial -...
The Plump Pinay
(Photography by Tricia Gosingtian; Make-up by Marj Sia; Wigs and make-up from Catwalk Cosmetics; Models: Stacy and Danah Gutierrez of The Plump Pinay) Love these girls forever. Their blog is just amazingly beautiful and inspiring in so many ways.
blonde + boots / florals + dots
(Top from Cutie Little Fun in HK, shorts from HK, Jeffrey Campbell Lita-inspired boots from Asian Vogue, wig from The Mane Attraction for Catwalk, bag from Liz Lisa, H&M and Aldo accessories) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Cho Liz Lisa/gyaru style. I wore this (sans the blonde wig, of course) almost the whole day yesterday, and it was a miracle that my boots never hurt my feet at all...
UP Alternative Classroom Learning Experience
For this semester’s ACLE, UP Psychology Society presented A Talk on Information Dissemination through Media with me and Mr. Archie Geneta as speakers. I was first invited by Tin to be part of the her course’s ACLE but had to decline because during that time I wasn’t sure if I was going to be in the country. Still glad I got some more email invitations from other orgs after,...
Tutorial: Neutral Gyaru-inspired Eyes
I’ve been meaning to post a tutorial on how I usually do the kind of make-up that you see in my pictures because I’ve gotten so many requests from people, but for the longest time I’ve been contemplating whether or not I should do a video tutorial. I’m not an expert in make-up, and I only learned because of my vast collection of Japanese magazines (Popteen and ViVi have...
August Hong Kong Shopping Haul
Tutus and socks from a store in Miramar, skirts from random stores in the streets, stripey blazer with matching shorts from a store in Prudential Center, brown blazer and corset dress from H&M, leggings from 5cm, white dress and furry cardigan from Liz Lisa, loose floral tops and ribbon belt from Cutie Little Fun, shoes all from Venilla Suite, Japanese beauty products (i.e. Dolly Wink,...
(Photography and styling by Tricia Gosingtian, make-up by Marj Sia, hair by Liz de Asis and Valerie Chua) Dream team! Thanks to my fabulous beauty queen friend Alexis Go (photo below), I was able to spend a brief afternoon shooting YouTube celebrity-turned-international artist Marié Digby who was so incredibly sweet and nice to talk to and work with. So many photographers could only dream...
cream + light
(Rose Tatu dress, from Hong Kong jacket, Diva necklace, Asian Vogue heels, Topshop belt; Thanks to my brother Calel for helping me with the photos!) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Finally got to take proper outfit photos and bask in the sunlight after almost two weeks of bad weather. To celebrate the return of the sun, I made a conscious effort to not wear anything dark or black today. ...
Behind-the-Scenes: Anthology Shoes
So flattered to be chosen to model for Anthology, which is a brand I really swear by because they are easily the best when it comes to creating high-quality flats. My silver Shanghai flats are my default shoes whenever I have shoots (as a photographer) that require me to move around a lot and they’ve never failed me. I used to only photograph for them, so it was quite surprising to be the...
