Let me show you the power of layering. Would you believe that the skirt I have on is actually composed of three parts from 3 different brands? It’s the snakeskin belt plus the detachable peplum belt and then the skirt itself.

So why the layers? Basically, I just wanted to play around with proportions. Imagine my top with just the bodycon skirt. It’s heavy on the shoulders and narrow all the way down. That’s not exactly the most interesting and flattering silhouette. By adding the peplum belt, I was able to balance my top off. I could’ve stopped there but adding another belt, namely the snakeskin waist belt, made my outfit edgier and definitely trendier. Plus, waist belts can make our waists look smaller and our physique curvier. Who doesn’t want that? (Wag nang magkunwari, tayo-tayo lang naman. Haha!)

    Miss Cams, I really like your legs. ANG HABA!
    One time during our thesis subject, nahuli ako ng teacher ko na inatupag ang pagtingin sa blog mo kesa sa pagre-research. Bigla kong sinara ang tab pero nakita pa rin niya. Akala ko pagagalitan ako nung nilapitan niya ako.

    Yun pala sasabihin lang, ‘Iyon ba ang dream legs mo? Malabo nang matupad yan.’ then she smiled at me teasingly.
    Na tame ng legs mo Miss…hahahahahhaha

    Hi Ms. Camille :) Just wanted to say i think you’re the Filipina version of Blake Lively. Tall, legs that go on forever, and of course a classy, elegant yet fun fashion sense. You’re one of my fashion idols.
