Here’s another set of photos that are different from my usual shots. The sun was already setting so I was running out of light again. (What’s new?) The photos  came out surprisingly dramatic. I find it to be a nice contrast to my floral outfit. Instead of the usual bright backdrop, it’s the cityscape and traffic lights behind me.

If you live in a tropical country like mine, I’m sure layering isn’t always wise. If it gets too hot, why not try wearing your coat as a top instead? Just cinch it at the waist like this and you’ve got a whole new look!

When I first saw this floral coat from Oh My Frock, I actually found it to be really unique. What attracted me to it were the little details–the giant pocket flaps, the straps and buttons, the gathering on the waist. Come to think of it, it kind of looks like a detective’s coat… except it’s in florals!

Floral prints almost always look good with the color brown. That’s another tip for you. Whenever you’re wearing a print inspired by nature, pick a color from nature itself. Mother Nature knows best. LOL.

    Hi Camille. I’m graduating from high school this year and I’m planning to study fashion but I’m afraid it’ll be risky and a lot of people are like encouraging me to get a professional degree instead of pursuing fashion. I Iove fashion but I’m still not sure whether its just a passion or whether I really want to be in this business in the future. We’re you like super sure that you wanted to be a fashion designer already since young? Would really love your advice on this. You’re awesome btw. :D

      You know what, if you’re uncertain, better go for a business course. You can always pursue fashion on the side or after college/ I myself graduated from Ateneo first before studying fashion :)

      Thanks Claudia!

    I love how the pictures look! I see a lot of coats with floral prints but I was a little scared to try it out, but I might actually try it this fall! :)

    Every time na nagcocoment ako sa blog mo, Napapa isip talaga ko kelan kaya kita makikita?! hehe.. Hay Camille I so love you I swear!!!! Iba yung impact na ginawa mo sakin about fashion! hehe I’m so OA but it’s true! Sometimes I imagine wearing All your outfits that you post. hehe Love you talaga! #fanGirlTodaMax :))))))

    OMG! everything that you’re wearing looks good on you. REALLY! I don’t know how you put them together! You can carry fashion without making it too over-the-top not like other bloggers. No offense :D

    I think that little light left from the sun and the color of your outfit matched perfectly well. It gives off that Manhattan feel in your photos. As we regularly see from New York-ers, theire style is mostly consisted of trench coats, especially when it’s near Christmas already! Haha. I think wearing that piece is the easiest solution when you have to be dressy for some reason. :) Oh and, Ate Camille! Thanks for being one of the greatest source of ideas when it comes to print and color-matching. I read this quotation in an application installed in my phone and I want to share it with you!!

    “I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern; wearing head-to-toe designer has become a bit passe. It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.

    Hi Ms. Camille! :) you look so different here! you look mature haha. Can I suggest? you know this one i think, you choose 30 pcs. fashion items and you use them to mix and match what you want to wear for 30 days. hahahaha cause I think it will be FUN! God bless always Ms. Camille <3

    • itscamilleco

      Haha stylebible! That’s so hard! Maybe when I have more time to prepare in the mornings then I’ll try that! :)

    From afar, your necklace looks similar to Caroline Channing’s. Sophisticated!

    I thought the coat comes with the brown lining but it is a skirt pala, great idea!! Anyway, madame na madame ang peg! Parang tumabi-kayo-sa-dadaanan-ko outfit! haha! :D

    Hi! I emailed you before about having a gown made but it didn’t push thru coz i didn’t really have an event for it. But i just got recently engaged and you’re one of my go-to designers!!!
    I really like how you combine sophistication, elegance with some sexiness and the showing off some skin. I hope to visit your atelier soon!

    Btw, you might find some interesting neck pieces here:
    I was hoping to send you some but wondering how to go about it.

    Fabulous outfit, I love the belt and how it matches the he, of the dress, fab colours a,

    Might I suggest investing in an LED light or the Olympus external flash?

    The bright colours on the top are kind of lost from the lack of light. Other wise I can imagine this having that nice autumn feel.

    Your looks are always classy yet sexy, sophisticated but not too over-the-top, and easy on the eyes :) That’s your trademark. Heehee. Thumbs up again for this look ate Camille! :) Keep blogging!! More power >:D<

    – Your number 1 fan <3

    • itscamilleco

      Yes :) I want to get a Nikon D800 :) And yes to keeping my Olympus :)
