Sheer Luck

First of all, thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my DIY post Chasing the Sun. The skirt actually looked like this when my tita gave it to me (aka pre-DIY):


Awhile ago, bored and done with uploading new Anagon Collection items (click! click!), I decided to showcase another sheer skirt DIY. This time, I snipped ALL of the skirt's lining so I'll only have the lace-frame--which I can happily layer with a dress, a skirt, or even with shorts! For this post, I wore it with my LBD:



I was actually quite disappointed with taking photos on self-timer. Framing and lighting were both bad, if only I have someone with me (home alone day). Anyhoo, I actually realized how I am into DIYs before, way back in high school when I can't even afford my own clutch bag. I love it that what I lack financially actually paved way to "ideas" and "creativity". I learned to be resourceful and make things for myself. 

I made loads of neat stuff before, like pencil case out of cut-out shampoo bottle, or a quirky belt made from big handkerchief. My friends will call them Anagon's Creations. I wonder why that didn't won as my brand name, haha. Are you Ms. DIY QUEEN too? Do share to me links of your creations! :)

Oh, I even made my own grad ball bag:

More high school DIYs HERE.

Anyway, back to my lace skirt, yeah, I wasn't able to take a nice picture of it, too bad. It's much nicer in person, with the details that give "pretty shadows" to my skin or to the wall. So BOO solo-photo shoots.

Here comes the sun! And it's not alright because it's destroying the shot! Haha!

Guess it's not everyday that photos will turn out the way I thought it would. sigh.
