Shoot All the Way

I styled for 3 days straight. Last weekend was the Fashion Wars openshoot with photographer MJ Cachero. It ran for 2 days and then I again styled for an openshoot teaser for BNS (the guys behind the Pin-Up shoot I posted last month) today. I'm exhausted! I had a lot of fun though. I wasn't able to take decent outfit shots, except for Sunday during an early morning coffee run. So here are some photos from my busy weekend... (Beware: photo overload)

Ana and Melai helped out on the 1st day. Thanks girls!=)

Jear printed copies of this and taped it all over the studio. Lol. Lavet.
Me and Melai in action--styling and taking photos. 

Stylists + Yeoh
I was only able to take a few photos coz Mich was busy working on her laptop. Booo. These are just 2 of the girls I styled...



If you must know, it's really difficult to style for openshoots coz it always call for spontaneous styling. We can only work with pieces participants bring. There are participants who bring clothes but doesn't really fit the theme or are not at all "workable", some bring shoes that doesn't match their outfit, and some don't bring anything at all! So I always bring extra clothes and lots of accessories. Sadly, for the 1st day I didn't bring a lot (I expected too much), so I wasn't able to really vamp up some of the girls outfits. =( I even had to take off what I was wearing that day to make someone wear it (that explains my sudden change of outfit, lol).

My emergency outfit after I lent someone my top--which Jear styled coz I also walked the runway!=P
here's where my top went to! fabulous styling by Ana and Melai. Kookie was their inspiration!=)

The shoot wrapped up at around 7pm. We were all drained! Thank you Ana and Melai again. :)

Day 2

I came early AND I came super prepared this time! Brought 2 huge bags of shoes and clothes. I also had time to have a quick coffee date with Mich and an outfit shot!


It was so hot so I had to take off my cardigan...

tired stylists
I was so tired when I got home and my whole body was aching from standing up for 9hours straight for 2 days.  I owe Mich a lot for dragging her to my styling gigs even when she don't need to. I'm lucky.=) 

Today I styled for BNS' teaser for an upcoming exclusive openshoot! Here's a sneak peak and some behind the scenes. Can't wait for the actual teaser!

It's always fun shooting with the BNS family. Love them forever! Thanks Darz and Vil! =)

How's your week so far guys? Hope you're all having a good one. As for me, I have another styling gig tomorrow! It's a pretty big one and I'm kinda intimidated and anxious now, so wish me luck. =) This is a crazy crazy week with all my extra stints (styling and meetings for a project) plus it's fashion week! I guess I'll be seeing some of you around. Say hi when you do coz I'm a little blind when it comes to crowded places! So there, toodles!xo

  1. WOW. That was a mouthful! Enjoyed it though. The stints sound like so much fun. I think it'll be one of those days that you'll remember was so tiring but in the end, you'll catch yourself smiling. You are so talented! AND that girl on the first day you lent a shirt to, I THINK I KNOW HER. WTF, RIGHT? LOL

    Coveting the polka-dotted blazer and I see you've acquired the hello kitty top na. Love it!
