Sigh Styles Concept for Sunstar: Black & White for S/S 2014

The world was created round and filled with bright, lively colors and ephemeral shades and tints. But as they say, like repels like and the opposites attract. The intensity of the contrast is all that really counts.  SighStyles  again, is featured in Sunstar - Shopping Bag section entitled: OPPOSITES ATTRACT, highlighting the eternal black and white color cocktail.

I have always been head over heels with black and white, so much so, that I wanted to share my personal favorite to the fashion-savvy audience.  I know for one that with my sporadic contribution in Sunstar will be one great avenue to express my paramount fondness of this B&W palette.  .
I have a number of late-night sleeps in pursuing this black and white concept for the local newspaper.  It started in the later months of last year.  While I was browsing over for the fall /winter trends, I was the happiest when Black and White was one of the trends of the seasons.  So the planning happened instantly.  Getting an approval was not considered then a hindrance since I was confident that I would get a yes, again.  And, as expected, a Yes was received.  Wardrobe was not a problem at all since my closet is filled with black and white clothing.  Now, the who's who and the where and when, came drifting.  

The next six photos below made it on print.  This is my first, photo shoot that covered a number of locations and almost a month in search for the right locales and perfect timing.

The first two photos below were shot in Bangkok, Thailand.  Left - at Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre and one the Right - at Wat Pho Temple.  I intended the background to be colorful, to play contrast with the achromatic outfit. The next set of photos were snapped in SRP.  It was such a windy afternoon, so we ended the shoot shortly after two outfit changes since rain drops begun to fall. The greenery did amazingly help popped the color combo beautifully.

This photo was taken in another location at Naga, Cebu.  

And this again is another locale. We hopped on another island, in Lapu-Lapu City.

BLACK and WHITE is a perpetual classic trend in fashion and seems to be a merge of androgyny and simplicity. Despite being basic, there's nothing more chic than it, would you agree?
Not only is BLACK and WHITE super easy to style, but it gives you that understated guarantee to make you look instantly stylish and irresistibly dashing.
In the contrary, do you think this monochromatic combo stands for boring? I highly disagree.  If this palette is worn intelligently, you would look voguish and will exude an undeniable elegance and fashionable grace.
This photo was taken at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. See more photos of BACC here and here.
This photo was taken at Wat Arun Temple.  See more photos of Wat Arun here.

If you are not a fan of black and white, I guess it is high time now to challenge yourself and put on that yin-yang pieces. Stand out and there's no harm to think Parisian chic.

A Dozen Unfiltered Reasons Why Bangkok,Thailand Is Always My Place To Be

People nowadays have abundant, diverse resources that traveling outside one's home country has been a typical option for holidays or even for a long-weekend vacation.  And if you are from the Philippines, the accessible places and, by fact, the more affordable options would be those destinations nearby such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.

Yes, Thailand! My second favorite country, of course, next to the Philippines.  The country has a massive land area. But with the four times that I have been there, most of my adventures were spent only in Bangkok. In spite of it, I know that there are still numerous places to explore in the city of Big Mango.
I have overflowing stories to share about my trips to Bangkok, with brimming enthusiasm.  I have had several detailed blog posts about my trips since 2011, 2013 and 2014.  Although this post and the pictures you will be seeing are #throwback shots, I hope to still provide you with an overview of what the city has to offer and be able to…

How To Be Comfy Yet Chic to a Winter Vacation in Hong Kong

I always desire to have a winter vacation in Hong Kong.  Though, I actually have experienced it last 2013 with my family, see HERE,  but such desire never ceases and is always haunting me. Whenever December arrives, the hopes reach its acme. Thankfully,  January of this year, my wishful thinking and flaming desires turned to reality, again!

Why have a Vacation on Winter time? 
Despite I easily get cold feet and hands when temperature drops, I am so in love with winter time as it provides an entirely fresh sense of being assuredly away from home, which screams, you're on vacation! And, the fact that winter does not visit the Philippines makes the season more exciting.  More so, dressing-up for a winter season is such a fun and stimulating activity.  Even the thought of wearing my boots certainly thrills me.

Blending In With My Personal Style + Style Tips!

Transferring to a new location have initially distressed me. Everything was unaccustomed and I was back to zero, career-wise. Then, I was also in direly wanting to activate my Fashion Styling skills. The artist in me had a compelling fighting spirit. Why be afraid, why hide, why remain dormant? So, I went online and befriended creative minds alike.  And guess what? Last quarter of this year, I have successfully made my very first fashion styling collaboration with amazing Filipino talents in the field of photography here in Doha, Qatar and finally got acquainted with my online-turn-real-life friends: Eds Dela Cruz and Christine Lyn Espinosa.

Part of resettling is the embracing of foreign culture and adapting to their lifestyle which includes dressing up according to their norms.  If you have been following this blog, you might have known by now that my personal style has permanently gravitated to a direction that always had a touch of modesty. I prefer covering my extremities, wearing …
