BLOG SALE AND A “ME BEFORE YOU”-ish TOPSHOP SWEATER

Just wanted to quickly announce that my spring cleaning blog sale is up here at the second tab  on the upper left corner of the site (after About Julia)  and this sale consists of ten tops I haven’t been using in awhile but are still eye candy and in good condition…INCLUDING what I believe to be the main event of this sale: a TOPSHOP real knit wool sweater that I spotted and very likely being worn by Emilia Clarke in the Me Before You upcoming film trailer.  This particular piece I’m convinced is the main event of my blog sale.  If you’re one who travels abroad a lot this is for you, sadly we don’t have whether chilly enough locally for me to use it more often.

I’m like 99.9% sure it’s the same sweater, given that Me Before You is pretty much a British film with British actors and Topshop being a UK brand.  Obviously there is film grading in most movies, so I didn’t spot it right away, only when I applied a cooling filter (to match the grading in the film) to the warmer photo of the texture of my sweater (which killed all the orange dots) did I realize that it most likely is what it is.  If it isn’t that exact sweater  it’s twinning quite closely to be sure.  To buy this sweater or the other items I have for sale go here for the links to ebay or to the tab after About Julia.

A BIT OF BLOG SALE

Just a quick one this is to let you know I have a bit of a non-beauty blog sale happening at the link “upstairs” (you guys are in the “mezzanine” now) in the upper left tab “BLOG SALE” among the pages, click it then scroll down (the page doesn’t refresh or looks like it doesn’t move).  Sellin’ never hurt no one who needed a bit of extra cash (and needed to clear out space).  If ever I am selling something here it is not PR material so there is no beauty, just a bit of apparel and bags.  I’m still going to add more stuff as I go along.  Ebay links are all in the BLOG SALE page here. Payments are expected to be made via bank deposit.

This is stuff I was given or stuff I bought with my own money in the past.  Right now the selection hit a bit on boring because someone way too excited (kidding, dear, LOL) bought 3 of the really nice things within hours of my posting them on ebay, haha.  Note, that person hasn’t paid yet as of the moment so currently there’s still a slim possibility of those “SOLD” items returning to the sale.… To full post & COMMENTS...

My ZARA Wardrobe Upgrade | Style Scenes After the Sale

I think in recent years I have underestimated the power of dressing the part.  My best friend Alma told me personally that in our little group I’ve always been the medyo mas “fashion forward” or more different when it comes to clothes because of my artistic side…ever since high-school.  However, I think I’ve lagged a bit when it comes to the age-appropriate aspect of dressing myself because I hang with so many younger people, my cousins in particular.  An aunt of mine mentioned a couple of months back that I might begin to consider NOT wearing extremely casual or trendy clothes as often, even if they are comfortable.  She recommended retiring T-shirts with Mickey Mouse on them or loud pop-art for public viewing LOL.

 Even if I bring on the professional charm and have great makeup on this mug of mine there is still that doubt that tends to hang mid-air betweenme and clients sometimes.  Of course, I deliver the work and they are surprised and happy (and relieved) but their initial lack of trust because of how young I look is unsettling sometimes and can interfere with the work.   So I concluded that a change in personal presentation across my wardrobe just might help as people close to me suggested.

Black Suede Boots, SALE PRICE: PHP995.00, OLD PRICE : about Php2950 or 2995, (sorry, the old tag went missing) MADE IN VIETNAM

I first chose the black suede boots because for Php995 they looked exceedingly more expensive and when I wore them they felt much more than they actually cost when on my feet.  Then I chose a handful of top clothing pieces I needed, which you will see in the full post.  Two weeks ago, Filipino stylist, Michael Salientes, a good friend and former fashion director with Details magazine NYC (he was in the Big Apple for over 10 years and witnessed the Conde Nast publishing takeover when it acquired Details ), began egging me excitedly about the post-summer Zara sale, he said I have to go because of the major markdown on so many good classic pieces.  He said he was going that day during our shoot.  I said I’d go with him twice in a span of 8 minutes, and twice in that span I changed my mind after praying to calm my  excitement.  Because of the odd weather, terrible traffic, and other errands I decided to skip accompanying him on that exact day (others would tell me that was painfully unwise, to not accompany Michael Salientes on a shopping spree), but I said to him sincerely that I would try not to miss it.  When I have no peace I just won’t jump on it because I know there’s a reason why.  Long story short, the Zara sale left my mind for a whole week after Michael Salientes had told me that it was already the last weekend of the sale.  I figured I must have missed it.  Thinking the sale ship had sailed I silently beat myself up for not accompanying Michael.  However, on a very random day a week later, I found myself in Rockwell, lo and behold, the ZARA sale was still on, and many of the sale items had been marked down from the previous sale price AGAIN, bringing the prices even lower.  All photos in this fashion feature are shot by me using a Canon 600D with the new 50mm 1.8 STM lens and made possible with a tiny, hand-held Canon RC6 remote control which triggers 10 seconds of beeping before actually firing.  Click through to the full post to see the complete fashion feature on the clothes I chose from the ZARA sale.
