Shine Bright Like A Diamond

This is probably what a ballerina or skater would wear to a party–a nice little embellished dress. I swear I felt like one when I wore this out to an evening full of events and parties. I love that it’s in the classic black and white combo too. It’s the perfect canvas for the beadwork on my top. It made the silver beads pop all the more.

As a designer, I love studying dresses with beadwork on them. At first glance, they look so complicated but in reality, they’re actually pretty basic. I’m so amazed by how the simplest patterns can give the most beautiful illusions.

As with all my embellished dresses, it’s the center of attention so accessories take a backseat. But this doesn’t mean they don’t contribute anything. I still try my best to pick out the right accessories to match my dress. Take a look at my earrings! They match my dress’ pattern. Did anyone notice? Teehee. It’s the little details. :)

    Wow! You really did shine *bright* like a diamond here! So gorgeous! This is fashion and art in one :)

    I’ll be turning 21 tomorrow Ms. Cams, and I’d be super happy and kiliiiig if you (my idol, of course) send me a greeting! (pretty please) Since i’ll be working the whole day, I’d just wear a simple blouse and black pants, i think. But i wanted to look party-ready also. Teehee. Any suggestions? :)

    Thanks in advance. God bless! :*

    As usual, I love your whole outfit. I’ve been a loyal follower since your lookbook days (actually, I purchased a lot of your earlier designs from Multiply). But it’s my first time to comment – I just have to ask, what’s your lipstick shade/brand here? It looks gorgeous!

    U never failed to amazed me Ms. Camille..Remember b4 when I said that you will be the next Coco Chanel? I will definitely protest that lol….

    I love the shape of the dress itself! The fit of the top and the flare of the skirt gives such a flattering silhouette for a slimmer figure. :) And with the bead detail, you don’t have to fuss about what necklace to wear it with anymore. Bonus points!

    P.S: When I read the title of this post, I swear I heard Rihanna’s voice singing it in my head. Hahaha! XD

      Haha! Me too! Rihanna just won’t get out of my head! :) I agree with what you said, no more necklace dilemma!

      • abby07

        Haha..Sorry Camille, but for me commenting about your feet had been hard to resist. Believe me, I tried to refrain myself :D I even showed my mom your photo here and asked affirmation from her, “mom! isn’t her feet so cute?”
        And she told me, “syempre anak, naka-kotse sila palagi.” Haha.. :) Again, pardon the weirdo in me. ;)

    Ganda ng outfit mo Miss Cams. And na inlove ako sa heels mo..:)

    Can i ask a . . . question?

    Who usually yung kumukuha ng outfit shots Miss?

    Reply
    • itscamilleco

      Thanks Gladys! My assistant Clariss :) If I’m with friends, they take them. Lissa takes my photos a lot too whenever my assistant isn’t around. My driver also does sometimes. My mom takes my photos when I’m abroad with the family. For this, Laureen took them. :)

    How do you decide kung ano gagamitin mong bag between that Fendi and your black Chanel? They look alike eh. Kung sa bagay, mas malaki yung Chanel mo compared to that Fendi. I forgot na where I read this pero diba your dad ata gave you a Chanel purse as a grad gift ba yun? Which one was it?

    Reply
    • itscamilleco

      Yes and the Chanel is much flashier so parang too much na with this embellished top. Plus, this Fendi bag is black and silver while the Chanel is black and gold. My dad bought me the big white one :) I think I made a mistake and said it was the small white and black one.
