Full disclosure: it’s taken me a while to figure out the (life) direction I wanted to take. And while I know it can easily change in a couple of years, or months even should the Universe decide to intervene, I feel pretty good – ready to embrace new opportunities and let go of those that drag me down. (I found that it’s never easy to say no and leave but coming to peace with it is a huge sigh of relief.)

I semi-intended on taking photos in some area with long winding roads just to portray my sense of direction better but I guess I went vertically instead with a rooftop shoot (hopefully the symbolical height translates in my life too.)

To celebrate (read: more like to find a reason to dress up), I wore this beautiful BCBG dress that I was so lucky to have found on sale. It completely robs me of any illusion of a figure whatsoever but that’s just the way I like it. Also debuted my new Valentino heels that I am absolutely head over heels (pun intended) in love with. I think it’s the perfect shoe and I’m seriously considering wearing it to my wedding. Debating whether a post dedicated to it is necessary but I just might ‘coz the love I have for it needs to be immortalized somewhere.

This outfit sashayed its way into Stylebible’s Virtual Style Awards where Stybebible awarded digital game changers. Congratulations to all the winners: Tricia Gosingtian (Best Wardrobe Blogger), Fold Canela (Fashion Film Maker), Divine Lee (Best Celebrity Site), Jenni Eperson (Online Reporter), Nikki Tiu (Beauty Blogger), Your Evil Twin (Photographer), Thursday Room (Online Portfolio), KC Concepcion (Twitter Microblogger) and Kim Jones (Instagram Microblogger). What I appreciate about awards like this is that it encourages (and maybe, even demands?) a higher standard of internet perusal. And, well, finding out that Kim Jones, Instagram Microblogger winner, and I share the same filter is weirdly reassuring.

Oh, before I forget, they also showed a few videos and I just wanted to share my favorites – they not only make light of fashion (which is a breather) but they’re also very entertaining.

P.S. Get ready for a heart attack (clue: second vid). I literally jumped in my seat. Enjoy!
