Schoolboy meets schoolgirl in collared button-downs, knit cardigans and loafers. “Campus crush” looks for the Forever21 Valentine’s Lookbook contest.
We’ve been blogging these sample entries to give you guys a better idea how you can go about your own entries for the contest.
It could be as matchy as you want, or not! It could be in a studio, or outdoors.
It doesn’t really matter as long as your theme is pretty clear, and you’re able to express your individual and paired-up styling.
Show off your sweet style and get to win a P10,000 shopping spree from Forever21.
Don’t say you haven’t been warned—following these outfit photos are scrumptious shots of what we had for dinner at Torch with friends. Hence the garterized skirt to make room at the tummy area. Haha!
The Power Plant boutique of Cole Haan became filled with pretty lights, good music, fun food and great company on October 25, the brand’s Fall/Winter Launch Party. Taking the spotlight was the Women’s LunarGrand Wingtip Collection.
Dark Brown Suede/Orange, Navy Suede/Topaz and Gull Grey Suede/Volt. Everyone loves their brogues for sleek style and comfort, but these ones are simply as far out as their name.
Also in LunarGrand Wingtips were two very familiar girls: models Julia Sniegowski and Helena Belmonte.
Yes, you can pick random stuff from your closet, tie your hair haphazardly, wear no makeup and still blog about it. Blind Clothing floral dress, Ziggy & Zooey zebra print flats, Martina-Martina tribal-inspired necklace, Chemistry bangles. Hype this on Lookbook here.
A week ago, we were blessed with the most amazing opportunity: to do coverage of Hong Kong Fashion Week for Love Chic! We actually received the invites to be official Overseas Journalists (OJs) of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council as early as Christmas time, but we didn’t want to believe it until we actually had the plane tickets on hand. In effect, we were still completely surprised when they arrived in the mail!
The flat little building amidst all the skyscrapers is the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), where the fashion shows, trade fair and press conferences all happened. We’ll be posting all about these in the coming days, but for now, the obligatory outfit posts.
Topman shirt, Forever 21 Men plaid shirt, Bench jeans, Adidas sneakers, 101 New York scarf, Kissaholic satchel bag. Hype on Lookbook here.
From Bangkok dress, H&M shorts, Topshop stockings, Aldo socks, Parisian at SM Department Store booties, Kissaholic satchel bag, 101 New York scarf, SM Accessories connector ring. Hype on Lookbook here.
It’s our first time in Hong Kong, and also our first time to go out of the country alone. So despite being terribly underdressed for the fashion capital’s winter air, we were feeling warm and fuzzy inside. We can’t wait to share more photos and stories with you!
Happy Year of the Dragon, folks!
Special thanks to Miss Vivienne Chee and Chloe Kiosk of the Hong Kong Trade and Development Council for inviting us to be Overseas Journalists.

What we wore to today’s general convocation of Commerce students in UST, where we gave a talk on “Creativity in Business.”
This day was a blur—as gasgas as it is to say this, time really flies when you’re having fun and fun we definitely had. This is only our second time to give a talk, the first one being for the ACLE of UP Diliman’s Engineering students (yes, it’s the same dress design on Shai, only in blue). So to be welcomed so warmly by the Thomasians, to be eagerly asked so many questions and be told how much we inspire students, gives us some seriously fuzzy feelings. As promised, snapshots below.
View of the slideshow from the upper rows at the back. The talk was held at the UST Medicine Auditorium.
Impromptu “class picture” of students who didn’t leave right away, taken from the stage. Now we wish we could’ve posed with them instead. Heh.
Our little sister Janine Cham. She’s one of the organizers, as the Public Relations Officer of UST Pre-Com Society. We’re so proud!
With hosts Topi and Chloe and events planner/host/voice talent Guggles. It’s our first time to meet them but we instantly clicked.
We want to post more photos, but different cameras were used and these are the only ones from ours. Whomever we missed, shout-out to you guys!
Thank you to everyone for having us, especially to those who made it possible. We really enjoy doing these things, sharing our stories, being stand-up comedians and impromptu dancers. So if you’re in school and you’d like to have us for your edu-tainment, email us and we’d be glad to be there.
