Held my much-awaited first styling stint for a newspaper awhile ago. The Manila Times invited me for an interview on Back-to-School fashion, and asked me to bring along models I can dress up with 3 different looks. It's like me playing with my Barbies all over again! So that's my very own "Oooohhhh... that's why!"-moment on why I spent so much time changing Barbie's clothes/shoes/haircut back in my childhood! ;p

When they said school girl fashion, I clarified if they meant the preppy look only, ala Gossip Girl's Upper East Sider style. But they asked for more than that, so I categorized the 3 required looks into specific themes: 
1. Preppy Student - Gossip Girl look, checkered, plaids, stripes, classy, pearls, oxfords, high socks, brogues, bows.
2. Trendy Student - I chose the denim-on-denim, floral-on-denim, and denim accessorized with brown trend.
3. Summer Hangover - Or, how to take your summer clothes from the beach to the campus. Example, Henzel's maxi dress made wearable with tube top underneath+cover up. For CJ, I brought the DIY top layered with a black cover-up, the look I wore during the Countdown to Viet-Cambodia Trip with my Bullies! =)

I reached SM Manila alive with super heavy bags filled with clothes and accessories. I felt so organized then, bringing complete ensemble for two girls for the three different theme--and proudly mostly worn! (No look was wasted! Which happened in almost all shoots I've been to! This made me happy!). Anyway, so I was 10 minutes ahead of the team in our meet up point (Starbucks) so I indulged in my daily caffeine-fix, when my Manila Times friends--Shy (the writer for the article) and Nikka (the photographer) arrived, right on time. =) We had the casual interview there while waiting for CJ and Henzel.

When we reached their former school (they have a Journalism course in Manila Times! Which is just too cool because they were absorbed by the publication the moment they graduated!)...we started the putting together of clothes (♥!) and then Nikka fired away taking pictures in the different sites of the publishing house/campus. The photos above are all from my digital explains the poor quality, hehe! ;p All in all, I can say that it was a cool team, everyone's efforts were appreciated, all creative inputs were heard, plus, we get to talk about other things like Candymag (our favorite local teen glossy!), our life stories, etcetera. I think it's meaningful when you're just open and real with other people. I enjoyed everyone's company. =)
