Light Up Your Christmas

I’ve already told you guys how much of a sucker I am for Christmas and everything related to it. This time of the year always takes me to my happy place even if it’s the most stressful, traffic-heavy and busiest month of the year. No one and nothing can ever rain on my parade–not even the end of the world. (Doomsday, you are an epic failure.)

See! I’m even twirling with joy here! LOL! I really don’t know how the Grinch does it. I mean, how can someone remain so grumpy amidst festive surroundings? With every corner in the city adorned with pretty ornaments, decor and Christmas lights, who wouldn’t catch the Christmas spirit?

I actually really wanted to take photos at one of Meralco’s Liwanag parks for this entry. I just came from a campaign shoot (hence the heavy make-up) and wore this as one of my outfits. I thought of it as a great holiday dress so I wanted to look all Christmas-y for this outfit post. It would’ve been nice to have the park as my backdrop–full of Christmas lights and decor. If you haven’t heard about these parks, Liwanag Parks are built by Meralco as part of their signature Christmas campaign called “Maliwanag ang Pasko”. It has been helping charitable institutions since 2006. And this year, the campaign has grown bigger and brighter with the help of Department of Tourism, creating more Liwanag Parks and positioning the Philippines as a Christmas destination. What I love most about this campaign is it’s not just about the Christmas decorations, “Maliwanag Ang Pasko” also enjoins Meralco customers to help energize island schools in Quezon, Palawan, Bohol and Dinagat Islands just by uploading photos of a lighted house or any of the Liwanag Parks on Maliwanag Ang Pasko’s Facebook app. In doing so, Meralco customers like you and me can also get a chance to win Php5,000 daily!

Sigh, if only I wasn’t in a rush, I would’ve really loved to go to a Liwanag Park. If you want to help out and are interested to help the campaign or simple want to win PhP5000, drop by a Liwanag Park, take a photo there and upload it on Maliwanag Ang Pasko’s Facebook app. Liwanag Parks are located at the following areas: Meralco Compound in Ortigas, Bacoor in Cavite; Baliuag, Bulacan, Angat, San Rafael, Sta. Maria and Plaridel in Bulacan; Baras, Binangonan, Angono, Antipolo and Jala-jala in Rizal; Batangas City; Bulacan; Cavite City; Cabuyao City; Carmona in Cavite; Dolores in Quezon; Eastwood City; Quezon City; San Juan; Filinvest City Promenade in Alabang; Malabon; Marikina; Mowelfund in San Juan; Nagcarlan in Laguna; Pasig; Pateros; Pila in Laguna; SM Mall of Asia Arcade and Taguig.

Anyway, as I was saying, this is a great example of the perfect dress for the holidays. It’s simple yet striking. It’s classy and conservative enough for family gatherings but at the same time, modern and sassy enough for a get-together with friends.

Since this dress is predominantly white, I wanted to add a little color through my accessories to make it look a bit more festive. Emerald is the color for next year so why not start a little earlier than the rest? I’ve always loved emerald accessories. They look so sophisticated and opulent. Lakas maka-class!

    White and Gold is always classy and very elegant. I had this combo during the holiday party I attended in Manila. I like your dress. Very simple and blends perfectly with the emerald accessories.

    Happy holidays, Miss Camille! <3 That dress looks so pretty! Sequined in pure white fabric! Love! Emerald is the color for 2013?! Then I should start looking for clothes ad accessories in that color (not too much that I would look like a million dollar lady or overly made-up!) :D Found my holiday dress too! It has a sweetheart cutout and in mustard color. Hope I picked the right one! ;)

    PS: I hope this comment will be posted. My other comments weren't found in the other posts but that's okay, that won't stop me from visiting and leaving a comment on your site! :)

    I love this look on you, Camille. Dress, makeup and hair all suit you to a T. You should do your eyes like that more often too, I reckon. And the emerald ring and earrings are also perfect. You should be happy my dear. Great job! :-)
