Earth Tones

September 8, 2012



i was never a fan of the colors brown, taupe, nude and everything that resembles dirt and clay. back in highschool and college, i would always go for anything bright, loud and everything that reminds me of cotton candy. yes, i was a candy girl back then and i collected each and every issue that came out in the stands. and yes, my closet was an assortment of rainbow colored pieces and it took me quite a long time to realize that that was the reason why i was having a hard time coordinating my outfits. i've never heard of color blocking or the print on print ensemble, so everytime i needed to (play) dress up, i always end up looking for something new, wear it once or twice, and then store them in my closet for the next 12 months or so because i have nothing else that matches it nicely. haha. i was THIS bad at organizing. but with the influx of fashion and beauty websites and having read online articles like this one from The Beauty Department, you get to slowly sort out your treasure trove that is your closet and go for pieces that are timeless, practical and blends harmoniously with your skin color. after knowing that i have warm undertone that goes well with earth tones, i cannot help but hoard pieces in this color palette. i still have colorful items of course but im slowly incorporating this light and dainty hue into my daily wear :)



anyways, the next set of photos are taken from the recently concluded One Cebu Expo held at the Cebu International Convention Center where local designers, entrepreneurs and the like showcase their world-class products. and always, Janice Minor's pieces are stunningly beautiful. i love all her mirrors! such work of art!

few cutesy items. most booths did not allow picture taking.

    I like the mirrors in this post. Feeling nako kay gwapa kaayo ko if I have one at home. Haha. Love the uneven hemline and color of your dress, Toni. Never a fan of nude colors too but I only got acquainted with them lately. Thanks for linking up that article. Saved it in my favorites.

  10. Hi Toni!
    You know, I've been quite busy with everything that I've been doing in my life and I hardly visit blogs these days. I guess it's been A LONG time that I haven't visited yours because when I came for a visit, I WAS SURPRISED to see that you're already pregnant!

    I told myself, "It's been that long?" You're tummy has grown and I must say, you make such a lovely and stylish preggy. :) Congratulations for this bundle of blessing you're carrying inside you! I can't get over it! Hahaha. You look really great! It's nice to catch up on some of your past posts. :)

    Thanks for dropping by my blog! I remember (nostalgia lang kei, haha) that you're one of the first few bloggers who have "discovered" me way back when I was still blogging privately on my livejournal account.

    Stay stylish! Can't wait to see your baby!!! :)

    hearts,

  11. I used to prefer dark colored clothes before, it is only now that I've begun to appreciate the art of color blocking. Btw, you really looked pretty. I love that necklace.
