Black Widow

I had a video shoot last week for a certain brand. I know my hair doesn’t really look like it came from a shoot but darn wind wouldn’t give my hair a break! It was curled and styled so nicely by the hairstylist but the wind ruined it. Wind – 2, Camille – 0. Anyway, I was asked to bring outfits that would match red lips so I just grabbed whatever I thought of putting together and brought them to the shoot. Usually, when I’m asked to bring outfit options to shoots I try to bring one casual and one glam and another one that’s sort of in between the two. This is the glam outfit and it’s what the brand chose out of the 3 outfits I prepared. It’s my favorite as well. It’s both daring and modern which describes the brand too.

I love the contrasting textures of my crochet top and mixed material leather skirt. They made my monochromatic outfit come to life instead of looking flat and boring.

Notice anything different with the way I accessorized for my shoot? This is actually the first time I’m wearing statement necklaces AND statement earrings together. I used to think this was a major no-no. It was either one or the other but never both at the same time. Lately though, after seeing K-Pop artists (namely 2ne1) constantly doing this and pushing the boundaries, I came to realize that it doesn’t really look bad. Every chance I get, I tried to combine statement necklaces and earrings together but I always end up taking one or the other off before heading out the door. I was about to give up and conclude that it’s only Koreans who can pull this off–until finally, I found a look that worked! Such a tricky style!

    I love how you paired the earrings and necklace together and yeah for 2ne1! You always wear your jewelry so tastefully and it never looks overdone. Any tips on how to layer jewelry without looking bulky? Thanks!

    Gorgeous as always Ms. Camille! :) Can I ask a question? Are you always at the Makati branch of Coexist?

    Ate, when you buy a certain piece (or say, you see a certain piece hanging at a clothes rack in a certain shop and you like it), do you think in advance about how you will style it or which pieces in your closet would look good with it in an outfit?

    Oh and I once watched a tv show in Arirang wherein they talked about Korean style. One Korean designer there said that you should only wear either a statement necklace or earrings and you should never wear them together. But I think, if he sees you, he’ll eat his words! (haha. peace to that korean designer). Plus! I miss your McQueen clutch and shoes! Sana magkaroon sila ng comeback! xD

      They just automatically come to my head! So many ideas come rushing in because I really like that certain item :)

      Regarding the Korean designer, I used to think that as well and then I saw 2ne1 and changed my mind LOL. It’s not for everyday and it’s hard to do. It’s not for all outfits but it CAN work :)

    Grabe the crocheted top, the I’m afraid na baka one wrong move ko, may sasabit saken; Black Widow nga talaga, haha! I love the look all in all. Parang mix of goth + glam, sophisticated + modern. Amen on the K-Pop stars being able to pull off so many looks. I really think that most of their looks are only bagay for them unless you pull it off right (else you’d look kinda weird). Kelangan talagang pag-aralan. In this case, you pulled off the statement accessory on statement accesory just right ;) And that knuckle clutch.. Watch out you thieves, she can sucker punch you in the gut with her knuckle clutch if you try to steal it from her, hahaha!

      Haha! Yes this clutch is deadly LOL :) I agree, they’re always so unique and attention-grabbing which can be risky :)

    Way too many bling. I can’t decide whether the outfit’s supposed to be edgy or sophisticated. BUT your red hair’s growing on me. :)

    You are sophisticated in your look. :) pero kahit ano pang klase ang outfit mo, sophisticated ka pa din. :) btw, ate cams, there is one guy in library and told me that you are beautiful and parang pinaghahandaan mo ang date mo but I told him that you are single nd guess what sabi sa akin Hindi daw sya convinced na wala kang boyfriend. Haha. Hindi talaga sya naniniwala until sinabi niya na sabagay sa ganyang kaganda at katalinong girl matatakot na ang ibang guys mag court. :):)

    No doubt! Pretty as always. And I know that you can pull off any style!
    Even if it’s wearing statement earrings and necklaces in the same style.
