Soul Lifestyle organized le event to inspire ze bloggers to take fashion to a whole new level, inspire people by giving themselves more reasons to dress up, because one way of feeling great is by looking great! Nyaha! Its all in the confidence baby. Who'd better to inspire us, no other than ze pioneer fashion blogger from Davao, Cheyser P. of http://www.thewalkingrecessionista.com/ who happens to be ze muse of Soul Lifestyle.
Had a good chat with ze wild bloggers, how we got started in blogging, why we started and who our fashion icons/inspirations are, and something weird/unique/crazy about us. Gosh! Farrah insisted that I'll go first, maybe because I came in late, hahaha, (I took the bus from Gensan, and it took us 4 hours to get to Davao, when it just usually takes 3 hours, defensive? Haha.)
Moving on, I started blogging cuz I got inspired by Hannah Beth and Audrey Kitching, and I just wanted to share the stuff I like, that's all. Favorite fashion icons, Coco Chanel and Edie Sedgwick. I can't even remember when I started my blog! *lame* Cuz I had an old blog PoisonedCupcakes.blogspot.com, and I wanted to change the name, so I made this one. Tralalala... When it was time to say something weird about yourself, I was thinking to myself....
"Something weird about me? I'm 140% weird"
I found it hard to narrow the weirdness down, so I just sat there, laughed and did my chesire cat grin. :D
Was a bit shy on the thought that most of the wild bloggers already had blog giveaways, and le me, nada. Planning to have one pretty soon, so watch for it. *fingers crossed*
Cheys gave us the 411 on, why The Walking Recessionista? How she started, and she also gave us a few blogging tips, was inspired to really make more time for my blog, despite the wild life that I have, plus my habit of being a lazy-ass, hence the very late blog post. All in all I had a really good time. Everything was just magnefique. Couldn't get any better than this... or could it?

And Yes, It got even better! On our way to Soul's Abeeza HQ to start ze styling challenge. *game face on*
Lets get it on...
Choosing pieces from Soul's fab collection is like picking a favorite among your children, you just simply can't, its just so fudge'n hard...
cuz everything was just oh so FAB-OH-LOUS.
Le cross (Aidx) , and le sky (moi)
Le moment of truth... Each team explained their looks to ze judges...
Ze goal of the styling challenge, is to create a look inspired by Cheyser le Walking Recessionista at the same time adding our own personal touch based on our own style aesthetic.
I picked out the blazer and told Pane that it would kick ass cuz tangerine is the color of the year, and whoooo lucky us, Cheys recognized it as well when she judged our looks!!! I also took out a gold, orange, turquoise necklace ensemble, and paired it with orange and turquoise bangles, along with dark green oval shaped earrings. I saw this cropped lace top, that was simply divine, Its a perfect piece to reflect class and edgyness just like Cheys is. ;) Decided to just have a 2 colored palette, so that it would't complicate the look. Was having second thoughts on the shorts, but we both agreed later on, that its perfect, especially for my long legs, (exclude ze thunder thighs. HAHA.) When I was fitting the clothes, Pane picked out the bag, a white bag, embellished with black lace. Though it didn't go with the orange and turquoise theme, it still gave a kick to the look, cuz black and white goes with anything!!! Ayt?
Whatcha think? Killed it? :))
Le fab looks...
and guess who won?
Team Kyrie Kouture and Confessions of a Glitterati won ze wild styling challenge!!!Yey!!!
We won a P1000 gift certificate, and will have our look displayed on their window, doesn't that just kick-ass???
