What I Wore Today: Celeteque Event DIY Outfit

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

So today, I went to my first ever blog event which was for Celeteque. I usually shy away from events because I can be a little agoraphobic at times but I decided to go to this one since the invite stated that it was going to be an intimate gathering among bloggers.

A couple days ago, I was figuring out what I wanted to wear to the event. Since it was my first, I wanted it to have something special; I also really wanted to project the whole image and style philosophy of my blog through my outfit. So it dawned upon me to create and sew my own outfit. And this is how it came out:
DIY cami, maxi skirt and coin necklace
vintage belt
scarf from greenhills
bag from accessorize


I'll tell you more about the event in another blog post because I don't have the cable of the camera I used to document the event. I had to borrow my mom's digicam cause I didn't feel like lugging around our heavy dslr with me.

It was quite a tiring day for me since I was out since morning, but meeting fellow bloggers made it worthwhile. Can't wait to talk about the new friends I made in my next post. Looking forward to seeing you all again! BIG BIG kisses! :)

Gonna have some tea to unwind and relax now. Have a good night. Sweet Dreams...
