goodbye, i'll miss you (for now)

it's always lethargic to part ways with something that has a sentimental value. pockets of tears, a waiving hand and a look back - doings by people to someone or something worth remembering. lingering in my thoughts last night, the idea of having to put a period on my blogging and starting anew, is a bitter-sweet-better-mixed emotions. i cant fathom the intensity of how attached i am (was) to my blog, having to do daily updates once in a while. delving into an uncertain niche. this has been, by far, a surreal experience. how am i suppose to say goodbye to a journal so close to me, so personal?

i have been waiting for signals to determine my blog halt. in as much as i would want to explain further the feeling of a pin cushion, i literally tumbled into the reality that a transition must be made. the first post i made, scanning through my archive, gave me a sense of fulfillment. how my writing skills progressed and how my enthusiasm regressed and depleted over time, i concluded that mine is a blog of personal experience and not of fashion. i came to realize that writing isn't at all depressing in the long run. so much so that i was able to fully comprehend the essence of my course and how blogging raised me to put the cherry on top of my blissful cake.

goodbye i'll miss you. throbbing. the thrill of blog rankings gave me the adrenaline, the itch of pausing my fingers on those keys and start writing. the positive commentaries from people of different societal rank prodded me to start the mouse-clicking and look for interesting posts with a nonchalant attitude. i would definitely agree that writers block really do exist.

now is the time to dab the mud with my hand, make sure that the purges weren't reversible and that my posts kept opaque (for most of my older, wilted, time-bound posts). time to laud my self and tap my shoulders some more. this is an accomplishment indeed. in the course of a year and three months approximately, today i start to peel the latex off me. and now i rest my case.

attention: this is my last (sighs with doubt) post. i will be updating once in a while but not as often as before.

hot off the runway (talk about balmain!)

quote yourself.

cfda reveals another membership list

so the cfda rolls its new set of envied fashionistas included in the coveted cfda membership. to recognize their consistent contribution to the american fashion scene, several renowned designers, a-list fashion gurus and style icons converge in a party thrown by the institution itself. 31 designers are in and were announced at mahattan's four season restaurant.

starting off with the infamous olsen twins.

te quiero, john galliano!

so when john galliano opens his show, he leaves everyone hanging on their seats. i was in awe after seeing the whole collection! he brought out a lethargic hollywood feel with every collection. the feathers, the see-throughs and the fabric (including the details!), undeniably perfect! best spring show 2010 for me!

"It came from a research trip to L.A.," Galliano said. "I went around the old houses of Hollywood and imagined how stars like Tallulah Bankhead, Lillian Gish, and Mary Pickford lived." It gave him an ideal justification for playing to his strengths in poetically glamorous chiffon; bias-cut little nothings; fragile, delightful plissé puff-shouldered blouses and bed jackets; and coats symbolically decorated with clusters of flowers made out of film gel. Galliano's color sense—the ice blues, silver lamés, powder pinks, and lemons—was exquisite; it was his fashion version of Sunset Boulevard.

from worst to best! the evolution of makeup, anyone?

tumblr is f-uh-un!

tumblr is so much fun. the blogging and the updates everytime and the race for that envied tumblarity (well, in my case). i started my tumblr account (again) because my short term amnesia took place. i was like, what was my password again, and oh shoot - there i go again! (i think i need a neurobooster!) enough said, my tumblarity is now soaring at 79.

im not bragging about it! its, somehow, telling everyone of my fast recovery (of my tumblr points). here are my stats.

i hope that i rocket up after a day or so!
