In red.

As chosen Fashion Correspondents for the Coke X Bench Fashion Show at the Coca-Cola Big Youth Blowout held at the TriNoma Activity Center yesterday, we were instructed only two things: arrive at 2PM and be in red.

Easy enough, yes? Well, there are only a couple of problems - I have tubes of red lipstick and numerous nail polishes in various shades of red BUT my closet totally lacks red pieces. Also, I desperately needed a haircut. It is a big event after all, and I wanted to look the part.

I was in SM North as early as 10:30AM to look for THE dress and maybe some accessories to go with it. Lesson learned: avoid rush shopping as much as possible. I forgot that it's hard for me to look for "mature" clothes in my size because I'm too skinny, but I don't want to buy from the Pre-Teens section anymore. Now because I was already pressed for time I didn't have a choice but to buy the first dress that fit. And now I'm regretting it a little because it's too expensive and still a little too big for me. But it's okay because it's so pretty and I know I will be able to use it in other instances and occasions.

By 12NN I was already done shopping so I went to TriNoma where I enjoyed a solitary lunch at Kenny Rogers before things got crazy busy again, then at 15 minutes before 1PM headed to FIX Lab for my haircut. I've learned my lesson during our department's Christmas party last year so I really made sure I had an appointment yesterday. I LOVE MY NEW HAIRSTYLE! Thank you Pabs, you're awesome. Big thanks also for advising me to change into my event-clothes and apply my makeup there :)

I arrived at the venue at quarter past 2PM where I met with my fellow Fashion Correspondents Ava, Alex, Aisa and Cheyser. What a fun bunch of fashionistas! I'm glad and honored to have been a part of this whole experience with them ♥

I'll share more photos from the event on my next post, but let me share with you the details of my outfit. After a couple of hours of panicky rushing through the two malls, here is the look I came up with:

The Lady is a Vamp
Dress - Petit Monde | Belt used as necklace - SM Accessories
Lace fingerless gloves - SM Dept Store | Tights - Leg Love by Kate Torralba
Black glitter peeptoes - Chelsea
Painted my nails with Bobbie Premium Nail Creme in Vamp, then topped the ring fingernail with Crazy Glitter :)
And this is my "new" hairstyle!
I've had this before I went with pixie cuts, and now I think I like this better :)
Although I might stick to wearing dresses and skirts for the next couple of weeks because I'm afraid
to be mistaken for a handsome little boy. =>
By the way, only the dress and necklace are newly-bought. I've had the rest for quite a while now so please don't think I am a spend-aholic :)

What do you think?

My next post will be about the event already so watch out for that! ♥
