Picture Taking Not Allowed
Its 5 AM and I'm blogging. I know its way too EARLY but I just woke up a couple of hours ago from a
very long nap. Probably the best way to regain that sleepiness is by blogging. Anyhow, sharing you guys what I wore last Monday when I attended the advanced screening ANTM Cycle 18 Episode featuring Francis Libiran's Hello Kitty Collection. Blair invited me to event that happened at SEVENTH HIGH, The Fort and gave me a meet-up time of 4 PM. Since I had nothing to do that day, decided to have lunch with Paolo at the fort hence the relaxed outfit. (Which I think is a bad decision cause I didn't expect the event to be 'party style' -- haha)
Before Paolo and I had lunch, we decided to take my outfit shots at Serendra. The lighting, and the backdrop was perfect so we took the opportunity to take pictures.
While taking pictures, the security guard approached us and told us that WE ARE NOT ALLOWED to take photos in the area! We were even asked (in a security guard yabang tone) what's the shoot for and we replied that it's for my blog and still asked us to stop. Pao and I were a bit surprised (and disappointed) knowing this as we are only taking photos for personal (and blog) use. We probably intimadated the guard as Pao was holding a D3000 and he kept on saying that I look like a model that's why we were reprimanded (cause the guard probably thought that it was for a professional shoot
which I think is stupid cause we were normal people obviously). Furious and disappointed, Pao and I went somewhere else where no security guards were around to continue to taking our photos.
Dress (used as top): THRIFTED || Skirt: SPACE
Headpiece: GIRL SHOPPE
Bangles: GENEVIVE GOZUM (which I returned because the color sticks to my skin. Look!)
Wedges: JANYLYN (that I got for only P299! It was the last pair and fortunately it was size 40! and my feet are ginormous enough to fit on it! Haha!)
Bag: MARC JACOBS
Anyway, I'm not familiar with this "rule" of NO PICTURE TAKING ALLOWED in Serendra / BGC area. Are you fashion bloggers aware of this? I've noticed a lot of places where security guards were reprimanding us for taking photos (just like the Blue Wave, SM MOA area). Is it really not allowed, or we just look intimdating cause we're using DSLR?
I hope you can shed me some light here folks.
Or just find another place to take my outfit shots to prevent this from happening again.
For the meantime kindly hype my look on LOOKBOOK
PS: Changed by top to this peach tank top I bought in TOPSHOP (for only P190--woot woot) cause Pao kept on complaining that my top is too revealing. Haha. And yes, I wore an orange+black ensemble the whole day :p
Much Love, TBD
