Bridesmaid Duties: Mon + Shy

"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale"

First bridesmaid duty: done. Whew.. One down, one more to go..

First off, congratulations and best wishes to Mon and Shy. It has been lovely spending my time with you when both of you guys were still single, now I hope we can still do videoke and get-together nights again soon.. soonest? as soon as the little one gets out maybe?

Okay, I won't rush! Here's my tight dress for the meantime. Did they do changes after I fitted this or did I just gain extra? Whoops!

Don't you just love vanity walls? (coughs) I designed this. Haha! 

You guys stay happy, stay in love and try not to throw plates at each other, k? Those stuffs are pretty expensive these days you know. Okay, seriously, I love you both! And yes, I almost cried while you [Shy] were walking down the aisle with "Thousand Years" playing, but sorry I didn't because I was making fun of your walk with your three inch heels. Apology accepted? ;)

All for Love

Last Sunday, Jheck and I, along with some friends did a video shoot for the big day.  Four words can best describe the activity - tiring, awkward, hot, but mostly fun -- all for the name of lurve!  Tiring - of course, with all the walking and running and acting.  Awkward - well, I usually work behind the camera, writing scripts or directing (small scale, not much), and it's really kind of awkward being in front this time.  Jheck and I were still pretty conscious acting out our parts despite us being the ones making the script.  Hot - 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. under the scorching heat in an almost abandoned golf course. Enough said.  And, of course, FUN! Jheck and I surely made the most out of it.  We worked hard preparing for the shoot and tried to make it easier for our friends who helped out.  Ah, the perks of having fun and creative geniuses as friends!

Anyways, this is what I wore before I changed into my outfit for the video shoot.  Obviously, my denim phase is so not over yet.  You see, its beautiful texture and timeless prettiness still draw me near it.  Everytime I visit my favorite thrift shops to de-stress and unwind, I mostly get out with one or two denim pieces to add to my rather overstuffed closet.  

Here's me trying to pose right with my heavy bag loaded with all my stuff.  Well, I just can't put it down what with it being part of the look. ;-)

I am currently addicted to fishtail braid.  It has become my daily do lately since my long hair and the crazy heat just don't go well together.  I've been so tempted to cut it short already but I always try to restrain myself so that it would be easier to style it on the day. 

Top, bag, & shorts - thrifted
Shoes - Bazaar
