I haven’t posted an LOTD AND FOTD in the longest time! I decided to take some photos of my look from Josh’s Uncle Abot and Auntie Chryssta’s beautiful wedding which was just held last friday at White Space! It was a simple yet magical gathering to witness two people who have dedicated their lives to God renew their vows. The whole event was straight to the point yet meaningful! And omg the food was amazing. <3
I wasn’t planning on having a dress custom made but when i found out that the attire was formal, I kind of panicked because I don’t have any long gowns in my closet. I contacted the first company I knew that makes custom made gowns: Haute Lifestyle. I’m a huge fan of their RTW items (Apartment 8) which is why I felt like I could trust their more upscale sister company, Haute Lifestyle. Josh (what a cute name for an equally charming girl) was assigned to design my dress. I asked her to design something that was simple yet kind of unique and of course it had to fit my budget of P6000. It also had to be PG-13 HAHA because I really wanted to make a nice impression on Josh’s family. :) She sketched something for me which I immediately loved but I had to stretch my budget a bit higher to P7500. Prior to my second fitting, I’d like to note that it wasn’t very easy to contact the only number they posted on their instagram account. On my second fitting, I was surprised to find that my gown was made out of pure jersey material and no boning at all. I was a bit shocked that it didn’t have the simple structure a gown would have for it’s price. It’s a good thing, my guardian angel Josh (the designer HA, not my boyfriend) was easy to talk to and she talked her boss into reconstructing my gown with boning for FREE! They were able to do everything in exactly a week which is impressive in my opinion. I do feel like I want to make some minor adjustments but the gown was lovely overall. Scroll down for more photos!
Here are some of my photos:
I took some makeup and outfit photos but lot of them were taken from my phone. I don’t take amazing pictures which is why I really don’t feel comfortable taking my olympus pen to events (I have a really low self esteem when it comes to taking pictures </3) AND I just don’t feel so comfortable making fashion blogger-y posts in public! :( These will have to do for now until I figure out a way to pose in public and figure out a way to consider the time I need when I take photos. I usually get ready so slowly and Josh ends up waiting for me to finish getting ready. In the end, I run out of time to take outfit photos. :(
My extremely simple dresses needed some bling so I rushed to Ever New just a day before the wedding and picked this pretty necklace!
my hair was done by Maui from Blo Rockwell
yes, I was taking HAIR SELFIES. It wasn’t easy to take these. :))
I did my own makeup!
benefit hello flawless foundation, The Face Shop eyebrow pencil, shady lade eye palette from theBalm, Bahama Mama by theBalm for contouring, MAC extra dimension skinfinish for highlighting, IN2IT eyeliner, MAC angel for the lips, and demi lashes from the Face Shop
