Had a super fun rush shoot with the uber talented twin towers (not related in real life) Val and Feanne–yes, their names deserve to be italicized–for an upcoming article I am crafting (God only knows what for). My love knows no bounds for these two fellow Gondo Girls because, on top of being amazingly gorgeous with legs up to their necks, they also churn out visually arresting and emotionally moving artworks. I urge everyone to visit their respective websites–a plethora of words cannot do justice to the talent these two are blessed with.
Of course, let’s not forget the Giant Flying Robot, who made this beautiful set a reality. I am so in love with the colours and quite frankly, if I weren’t in the photo, I would’ve thought the GFR traveled back to the eighties just to take photos of insanely cutesy harajuku-inspired girls.
So yes, the eighties–apparently, Feanne is a huge fan of the eighties so she and the GFR started streaming songs via youtube–the room was filled with sounds from Heathers, The Knack, Hall & Oates, etc. With the power only Feanne possesses, she was able to coax me into dancing along with her to the tune of the Erasures’ “Always” in the middle of Val’s bedroom (I don’t think that song was part of the eighties though).
Anyway, here are a few more photo outtakes inspired by a slew of eighties movies–on my end, I looked at Pretty in Pink, probably all of John Hughes flicks, this Filipino movie entitled “Bagets“, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, a photo of Feanne’s mom from the eighties, and a whole lot more:

The first time I encountered this peculiar neck piece was when Kryz Uy brought a similar looking bracelet to our “Summer Fashion” shoot, aptly titled: “Friends and Weeds“, a month or so ago. I was fascinated by it mostly, because it was so strangely attractive–the mix of gold hardware and bright knotted fabrics.
Definitely a statement piece that I wanted to get my hands on with the notion that it would totally accentuate my color-block outfits. So yes, if you’re looking for the same thing, drop by Extreme Finds–they have more to offer.
I love my Adidas trainers. They’re so gorgeous and so funky! I love how they added to the whole 80s feel! The last time I wore it around my dad, he went: “I used to have something like those back in the day!”
The great thing about this piece? It’s practically cheap and inexpensive, perfect for college-goers and the like! Drop byt he nearest Adidas boutique near you!
By the way, they recently had this ALL 24 Adidas Event last Saturday at Eastwood? Those who went, holler! I want to know how it was!
Unicorn Top: Forever 21 | Hearts Shorts: Zara | Necklace: Greenhills | Socks: Landmark | Flats: Comfit
Love these shoes from Comfit! They are indeed so comfortable plus, I practically melted at the sight of those tiny little bow detail.
When Val wore them, she went: “It reminds me of Dorothy”–being the illiterate one, I had to go, silently in my brain: “Is she talking about the Wizard of Oz?” because I may have seen snippets of it back when I was in Kindergarten but I’ve never gotten around to seeing the entirety of the film.
Don’t stone me! Watching the show will be on my to-do list.
The thing with flats is that it transcends era and time–and they’re so practical. If you’re willing to invest on comfortable and pretty flats, try out a few from Comfit, and the best part? It’s pretty much inexpensive. That’s what I call a compromise!
