Feel free to use crayola on my pictures to brighten up your day…Unfortunately my color scheme is as colorful as black and white…LOL!
I submitted the first photo to this Manila Streetwear contest sponsored by the Japan Foundation. It was held at SM Mall of Asia last Saturday. Little did I know that this picture would end up winning. Anyway, it was kind of a bummer because I thought it was a streetwear contest but there were several people wearing Harajuku cosplay inspired outfits. I even some some goth Lolitas here and there. But it was certainly fun and crazy! I have always been a huge fan of Japanese fashion so when I found out about this event I just had to check it out. The highlight of the evening was when fashion maven Cecila Van Straten aka Chuvaness approached me and told me she adored what I was wearing. She collaborated with the organizers of the event for the Streetwear Photo Exhibit. She was also one of the appointed judges for the fabulous event. Anyway, she disclosed to me that she gave a 99% percent. Isn’t that lovely?
FYI, Cecile is the one wearing the white dress wearing this fabulous Chuck Taylor clogs….Simply amazing!!!
My Mom and Dad accompanied me to the event. You can see my Mom working her thing wearing puff-sleeve Zara ensemble. Check out her awesome black Miu Miu flats and rouge Kelly handbag!
