The Reluctant Stylista

This is really just one of those lazy outfits that I wouldn’t have bothered to document as an OOTD post, except that it got photographed a lot that day.  See, I just threw on whatever, drove to Nio’s studio in Makati to meet up with him, John and our model Krystal Espiritu for lookbook shoot that day (we were shooting JSC’s first collection).  I thought I was going to be assisting Nio to style for the collection, but apparently I was doing it on my own as he was going to be our photographer that day!  Good thing our first stop was Nio’s studio, so I grabbed whatever was there to accessorize the clothes and we were all set.

But not before a whole lot of test shots.  Of myself.  So much, that Krystal jokingly complained I had more model shots that day than she did, haha!  So I thought I might as well keep all those photos for a future filler episode at The Reluctant Stylista. :P

Heart stockings and Fuzzy Sweaters

Sweater, shorts and ring from Forever 21 / Boots from Kickers

The pair of stockings was a Christmas gift from my cousin Aggie.  I used to wear a lot of patterned tights because I hated showing my legs.

The real model and the fake one. I hate our height difference! Hahaha!  I was already standing on higher ground, Krystal tried slouching, and she’s still taller!  Why oh why didn’t I get the tall genes? :(

Lighting test one. This is actually how I wear the sweater since it’s quite big.

I used to hate it when photographers do lighting tests on me because one is never really prepared for professional lighting when you barely wear make-up.  I usually I end up looking like a corpse.  But this shot by Adrian Teng isn’t so bad!

Sometimes, photographers get carried away with the test shots, so they start snapping away like crazy. As I said, I ended up with a bunch of photos. I think it’s because when they say “Jump!”, I really do. :P

Photos by Nio Manzano, except for the last three (including the lookbook photo) which were by Adrian Teng.
