My Current Obsession: Chalky Pastels and Elie Saab

As the new year is about to begin, I'm sure we're all watching out for fashion trend alerts for the year 2012. Well it all depends on who you listen to, but you're never really sure about a trend alert until it's actually trending already. Some websites have been forecasting what I see as brightened earth tones like cyan, bright yellow and vivid browns; along with chalky pastels like mauve, periwinkle, darkened mint green and turquoise and light golden-brown shades.The latter, I'm more excited about!

It would probably be reminiscent of Elie Saab's 2010 and 2011 spring collection. If I needed a gown, I would think Elie Saab would have the perfect answer (a girl can dream). He captures all of my personal favorites with his ethereal, feminine and romantic designs. I've always wanted to wear something that made me feel like I was gliding instead of walking haha! Anyway here are some of my faves :)

Bloggers United 2

Ah! It was a very short visit for me :( I would have wanted to stay longer but it was a very very busy day last Saturday! Still, I was a happy camper! I was on total fan girl mode :)) Well if you've read some of my past blog entries, you'd probably know that one of my frustrations is not being able to be that active in the fashion blogging world. I wish I had time to attend events and get to know other bloggers, but juggling med school and glee club doesn't leave much time for anything else. 

I can't deny that I was feeling a bit awkward. I'm a naturally shy person. As in REALLY shy! I can be so awkward during first meetings sometimes. I think some of the bloggers I met could attest to that :P

Hello again Ana! I loved your outfit! Especially your collar necklace! So cute :) Sorry for bothering you when you were super busy haha! Paalis na kasi ako eh :P
Ahh! One of my first favorite style icons! Nice to see you again Aisa! <3 Hurray for yellow bottoms! :) I still love your pants!

With Bestie! She's super cute!!! Small world no? :)) Kilala mo pala si Irvs!
Yey! I finally got to meet you Melai :) At least may picture tayo haha :P
OMG super trying hard not to melt haha! I finally got to meet these two awesome fashion bloggers! Wah super starstruck! Kookie and Karl were also super nice :)
Geez! I could have at least tried to notlook like a fan girl :)) Hello David! Yey got to meet you already! Love your sweater!
And of course the lovely Lissa Kahayon! Even prettier in person! Super nice too! Again, it's a small world isn't it? Denise texted me that we met! haha!
It was fantastic seeing my favorite bloggers in real life. I loved seeing them and their personal style through their photos, but meeting them in person was even better :)

Congrats to the organizers and participants of BU2! :) As you can see it was jam-packed! And of course super thank you to Irvs and Abby for coming with me! I was so happy to see you there Abby! I miss you! I remember our first bazaar together haha! The sulit shoes :P

I'll end this entry with my outfit posts for the day :)
