I honestly don’t know how I’m going to write this blog. These photos have been sitting in my draft folder for a good week now and every time I get to writing, I always find myself starring at these pictures with a loss for words.
I am madly in love with this set by Jing Pascual and Jade Caballo, it has every aspect I so deeply admired when I got into fashion blogging: a good eye for detail, a killer backdrop and awesome quality of photos.
These pictures are a product of love, passion and LOTS OF GUTS since they were literally shot in the middle of the round during rush hour on a weekday. Hope you enjoy them!
As Summer slowly comes to an end, it has become essential to be prepared for just about anything. Knowing Cebu and it’s sporadic weather, it wouldn’t become much of a surprise if it was scouring hot at one point and then raining like it’s nobody’s business the next. I mean, it’s already happening -.-
On top of my “to buy” list at the moment is a pair of sleek knee high rain boots that I can easily sport when the rainy season is on full frontal duty. I’ve been doing most of my research online but while I’m still on the hunt, my ever beloved Doc Marten replicas always seem to do the trick- they’re good for taking long walks, walking in damp places and they bring out an extra side of bad ass in me.
Going back to the weather, I always find it safer to stick to my basic white pieces when dressing up. That way, if it gets to hot, I don’t have to worry about feeling so stuffy and keeping a statement cover up is always fun to keep around my waist or to have around my shoulders when the occasion arises.
For this specific shoot I decided to keep things at a minimum since I knew we would be shooting around UBEC Crew’s masterpieces along Rahman street. Their work is so vibrant, meant to stand out and I wanted to work around it, to be seen in it while not being consumed by it at the same time. I guess this is what I came up with.
It’s suddenly become a dream of mine to pose around another graffiti wall in a flouncy full length dress just because I’d like to think I’m ironic like that. (Afterall, I named my dog Meow and my pet rock Fluffy) So until then, I will keep my eye open for new places to shoot- Cebu is full of them! I love my city, I love the people in it and I love being a part of it! #cebukeepsmegoing
