Postura Project: Nightlock

21 March 2012


What you are seeing, my friends, is how I normally dress for the office. A typical work-day for me consists of a simple jeans and tee combi - no frills, comfort dressing at its finest. Sometimes I do feel the need to make a little bit more effort, but yesterday was one of those days when I wanted to just wear my favorite jeans and a cute shirt and let the color scheme come together. In this case, I was going for a red-and-purple theme.

Shirt - Black Sheep | Jeans - 168 | Sandals - Grendha
The jeans I'm wearing here is one of my favorite pairs ever because I just love how it hugs my body. Would you believe I got it for only P200? There is a shop in 168 Mall that sells jeans and they all cost not more than P300! The quality is also great, considering the price! I must have bought about four pairs from that shop already and they all still fit me perfectly :) I find it difficult to find jeans in my size from more expensive brands because they're all a little too big for me. It's great that I don't have to resort to having pairs custom-made just to find my perfect fit :)

Cuff - Maria Paulita | Bag - SM Accessories
The cuff was given to by my friend Paula and it's just so pretty. As for the bag, I've been using it for the past week and I love how it's the perfect size to carry my everyday essentials (like face powder, wipes, lip balm, lipstick, IDs, coin purse, and keys).

Not really related to the post, but I just wanted to share a photo of my favorite cake from Goldilocks,
a slice of Choco Cherry Torte :)
So why the title Nightlock? It's perfect for the red-and-purple color scheme I have going on, plus it's also in honor of The Hunger Games movie. For those who've already read the book, you may remember nightlock berries as the poisonous berries that [SPOILER ALERT!] saved Katniss and Peeta at the end. I will watch the premiere of the movie tonight with my friend Angel and, based on tweets from the people (fans and critics alike) who've already seen it, it is going to be AMAZING. I am not regretting that I also bought tickets to the 3:40PM screening of the movie tomorrow!

I hate to be one of those people who spoil the fun for everyone, so I promise I won't post any reviews of the movie here yet ;) Happy Hunger Games!
Postura [noun]
Literally, it translates to posture. But colloquially, “posturang-postura” is an expression used
when someone looks very well dressed. We chose the name because we want
the Postura Project to showcase proud Filipinos garbed in local fashion.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The hope for the Postura Project is to become a portal for Filipino branded fashion and locally inspired looks. Started by four fashionalism advocates Arriane Serafico, Knox Balbastro, Sarah Meier, and David Guison, it has a very simple mission. To get fellow Filipinos to start wearing something Filipino everyday.
To kick-start the movement, we’re posing a challenge to ourselves - to wear something Filipino everyday, for one whole month. This is to show how we’re loud and proud, and we firmly believe that “Made in the Philippines” can be young, fun, and fashionable. We show how it takes very little effort to incorporate a piece of Philippine fashion into your everyday outfit.
