#38 A Full Dress in 8-Hours

Yet another lesson of PUTTING YOUR MIND INTO IT.

My Costume Sketch for the Halloween Party

In less than 8 hours I was able to come up with something that has been in my mind for quite some time now.  You see, it was the annual Halloween Ball of my college block and it was also my first time to attend such highly anticipated event.  I already missed two years because of my work in Brunei but now that I’m back in Manila I get to FINALLY attend.

My dress in 8 hours or less

All I can say is, IT WAS WORTH IT!  I got the materials, measured myself, cut and sewed all night.  All the handstitching and the painful attention to detail was worth it!  Needless to say that dress gave me such a wonderful feeling.  In moments like this, you really appreciate the POWER of fashion, and how getting crazy once in a while can be healthier than running everyday.

its all about how badly you want it

 I love you my dear college friends.  You all inspire me. 🙂


In Memoriam

          One time, during our pattern-making lessons, we were taking notes on the different kinds of skirts.  Full circle, half-circle, the pleated ones. Ken was behind me, she squinted her eyes, and asked, “Ugh… What’s that? Machine Done Pleats?” She pronounced Done as in CONE. MACHINE DHOOWN.  I fell silent, and then everyone laughed.

Better Place by you.

Life. Is. Beautiful.

          Now, there won’t be any days like that, nor of days of good food shared over gossip and rants or exchanging ringtones or watching movie premieres or sending each other random sweet little quotes or sharing corny jokes and life-lessons… for she, has passed away.

Life is Beautiful by you.

A Better Place

“To my girlfriends, happy Valentine’s Day! It’s the day to celebrate love, to remind us how powerful love can be.  Love keeps us alive and keeps us going, we do what we do no matter how frustrating life can get because we love, with love there are no regrets, there are no wrong decisions made by the heart, with love anything is possible! Ode to love! I’m glad to have found love in you. Thanks for being my friends and for loving me 🙂 I love you & happy Valentine’s Day!”
