Color Is My Weapon

Hey Everyone!

 Lo and behold, we finally got around to posting a new OOTW 
Things have been pretty hectic lately with JACK juggling thesis, events, business, and our ever present schoolwork. 

Anyway, you might all be wondering why today's post is called "Color Is my Weapon"
It's actually the name of the make-up workshop we attended last July 27! 
Strangely for a group into fashion, we're pretty clueless when it comes to make-up.
So when we found out that the awesome vlogger Noe Villagonzalo
of Color is my weapon was holding a Beauty Boot Camp workshop,
we decided to give it a shot! 

And aren't we glad we did! We learned a lot of subtle and useful make up tips, from how to contour to what kind of makeup suits different face shapes. Here are a few of our BTS pictures of the event :)

The entire group with the lovely Noe :) We did the makeup by ourselves! Watcha think guys?


Noe showing us how to do eyebrows, Hi C! ;)


Here are a couple of shots taken during the workshop:



Noe is having another batch for the Basic Make Up Workshop on August 31, so go on and visit her facebook page!


After all that, we HAD to do an OOTW! 
Unfortunately, K couldn't take the workshop with us cause she had to take care of loads of schoolwork. :(
But she managed to catch up afterwards, yay! 
Here's our "Color is My Weapon" looks



Grey, blue, white and a whole lot of black!


Julia:


J went for an all black ensemble.
Black leather bag, short black lace dress, and dress boots to match
Call her anything but goth
she prefers the term "boho-grunge" ;) 



Andrea:


A as usual rocking her look
 the casual shirt and shorts combo looking spiced up
 with a great, ferosh pair of Topshop shoes! 



Charmaine:


C was the bright spot, in our dark dominated scheme
Looking ever so pretty with her distinct chic style
She wore white sandals, a grey denim dress (which we all wanted by the way)
and a blue open polo for a more laid back look.


Kirah:


Kira blew us away with her OOTD
She didn't need the makeup tutorial at all 
(her naturally pretty face did the job)
A dark forest green maxi-skirt with a black off shoulder top from C's online shop
paired with bright blue flats that brought a playful pop of color! 



We'll be posting a lot more often (hopefully) 
since some of us have a lot of time on their hands ;)
So stay tuned!

Hipster Feels

Hipster (n. Slang)
One who is exceptionally aware of or interested in the latest trends and tastes.

So this quite a late post again, sorry guys. Everyone's literally so busy.
But here it is, we wore this in preparation for CAFA Week! The week long event's theme is Wanderlust, which very tumblr-y and hipster.

-C
Our favorite picture to date! Love that the colors of our outfit are different but still, it works!

Julia:
 
J went for a peace necklace 
over an "over sized" dress.
In maroon, no less, the CAFA color
and a very hip color nowadays
all of us cant get over maroon! Right, J?


Andrea:

A also went for maroon.
Skirt+sweater+boots!
A great formula outfit
Wear this on a gloomy day
and still look fab and gorg like A!


 Charmaine:

I also went for sweater and boots
but instead I wore a pair of white jeans
finished off with "triangle" necklace
Idea of boots are warming up to Cebuanos!
We see them on wash days more now,
*happy dance*

 Kirah:
K is in a sweater, too!
Paired it with a cute floral skirt,
stockings and oxfords
She finished off with her "LOVE" necklace
and voila! Her formula outfit as fab as ever!

Halloween 2013

We know that this post is waaaaay overdue, but we've been busy, lazy and well our main blogger tends to spend late nights in their store.

Apologies for the quality, night shots :(

Julia:

J went as a GYPSY
this outfit is sooo her!
She donned on some loose clothes,
a bunch or accessories.
 a scarf and her trusty boots.

Want to know your future? :)
-C
Andrea:

A went as...Santa's helper (or wife, haha)
She wore a santa dress with
her lace leggings, studded belt,
ribbon headband and booted heels
Always details of edginess with this girl!

Have you been naughty or nice?:)
-C
 Charmaine:

I went as--tah-dah--Little Red Riding Hood
I recycled one of my debut outfits,
sewed this red cape
and this basket from J for props.

Grandma, what big eyes you have?
-C
Kirah:

K went as Sailor Moon
This Japanese girl went with
one of A's cosplay outfits
and black stockings and pumps.

 Not all soldiers are this pretty, aren't they?

It's All About the Laces

So it's been awhile girls! 
This is one of our back logs...Sorry!
But as promised, here's our Lace day challenge! 
- K



J.A.C.K.

Photos were taken from Iphone and 
because of the bad lighting and quality 
it made it harder to edit...


Julia:


 She went for the simple,
dainty look...White top with border lace,
folded jeans and brown shoes.


Andrea:

Because she really loves 
her new laced stockings, 
with her sweater and that skirt, it
was the perfect day for her to wear 'em!


 Charmaine:


Our Chinita wears her 
classy lace top and black skater 
skirt with those black sandals.
Doesn't she look lovely?


  Kirah:


She wears that floral 
lace top and to add some bang...
her signature
Dr. Martens!

"Outfit Of The Whatever-Days"


So finally we're back together after how 
many canceled meet ups because of the earthquake. 
at least everyones's safe right?

Just like how we are, 
we've pulled off another synced OOTD! 



J.A.C.K.


Julia:


With her black plain top, 
long necklace and high-waist shorts she got from
https://www.facebook.com/TrendyJunkies
Julia displayed a hippie-stylish look. 


Andrea:



Biased by her own colours, 
she pulled off that demure look 
with the "skort" (skirt/shorts), laced tops 
and the wedge she has always 
wanted to wear again. 


 Charmaine:


Our working girl shows off her 
girl-next-door look. 
Plain white top and shorts 
with brown belt to complete it.


 Kirah:


She wears her favorite black tights 
with that muscle tee shirt she calls her "lazy top".
To complete the look, 
she wears that brown sandals.

Sembreak is finally here!
Say goodbye to jeans and say hello to 
skirts, dresses, shorts and leggings without worrying if the guard sees you!
We are so excited because we have a lot planned for the blog this break.
Keep posted :)

"Water. Earth. Fire. Air. My grandmother used to tell me stories about the old days, a time of peace when the Avatar kept balance between the Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and Air Nomads....."
wait this isn't the Avatar,
It's just another one of our back logs.
Elements.
