Moving Forward


Shirt: Zara
iPad Case: Ted Baker

Only a month a half to go before my Blog Anniversary! Unfortunately this year, I was not able to organize a shoot with my one of my photographer friends back in the Philippines. However, I am still organizing something very nice and hoping you guys will like it. I'm not giving any clues yet, cause I've a lot of ideas in my mind so just wait for it till I've completed everything. :)

Also, there are a couple of good things that will happen to Lo's Closet in the remainder of its final months before its 2nd Anniversary. So do tune in with that as well. I'm still holding these news as well, as some of them I haven't finalized yet but I cant wait till I can announce them.
Today I going back to my roots a little bit. I wore a black leather and fabric hybrid  jacket, with a pink shirt (Zara) and a red bow tie. Then wore super skinny jeans and cool shoes for the bottom. I've finally decided to replace my super old and torn up iPad cover with a colorful and stylish iPad case (Ted Baker).

Sorry for making this blog post a tease but I wanted to let you guys know what is going to happen before my blog anniversary. :)

Nothing to cross out in The List today my friends. :/

Always have fun!

Lets Take a Shot



Shirt: Zara
Jeans: Pull & Bear

Hey guys! Sorry again for  the late post, I wanted to organize my time to do a blogpost and balance my private life and bloglife. I'm happy to announce that from now on, I will post a new blogpost every SATURDAY!

Yes my good friends, from now on you won't have to wonder about when will upload an new post! I've decided that I needed an exact day to do my blog so me, and you my readers will have something to look forward to every week. :)


Just a quick info about the look. As you all know, its still Summer here in UAE. There will always be a nice playtime every afternoon, so I decided to put on something fun, go to our backyard and play a little. I'm wearing a nice tropical print shirt (Zara), FYI pineapple is one of my favorite fruits. For the bottom I completed this look with a pair of super skinny jeans (Pull & Bear). That in my hand my friends is a Instax Mini 8 as my companion to take nice pictures while I play.

As promised, I'll tell you everything that happened to me during my two weeks birthday celebration/vacation in Manila.



Oh wow, where do I start? Well I've decided to go home to Manila earlier than last year so I can celebrate my birthday with my good friends. However, I made it shorter to two weeks so I will be able to join any family trip that my Mom will organize this year (I miss out on a lot of family outings due to my very busy work/blog schedule). Unfortunately, we didn't leave the city cause I didn't have enough time to organize an out of town/country vacation with my friends but I made sure that I see all of them during those short two weeks which I did!

See you all again my beautiful and wonderful friends! ^_^
There were no days that I did not go out! lol! I lived like a rockstar partying all night and I even organized a house party. It's so nice that whenever I go home in Manila, we all get together and catch up. And although we are getting older, it feels like nothing changed since we graduated College.


My Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 wasn't only my playing companion, it was also my traveling companion! And yes, its yellow! I wanna say thank you to that special person who gave this awesome camera to me as a birthday gift! <3


I had fun taking these pictures during my vacation! I didn't want to use my DSLR cause its too big and its hard to carry it everyday. I'm worried that whenever I bring it, I might loose it or I might damage it (Plus I use my DSLR on my outfit shoots so I really didn't want to risk it). I don't really advice you to bring your DSLR if you're going on a vacation, especially if you'll go out a lot in the night. Unless you're a photographer, or you're willing to take pictures of your traveling companion/s who doesn't know how to use it (which sadly means less pictures for you), just take a nice digicam and you're good to go!

But me? I decided to bring an instant camera with a very fun color that suits my personality. I wanted pictures that feels more memorable, authentic and tangible. And it was fun using it and exchanging pictures with my friends. The feeling when you hear the film roll, pops out a blank photo and shake it until your image appears is so priceless it's incomparable to and doesn't even come close when you take a photo on your cellphone camera and upload it in FB.

So that's mostly everything that happened to me. I cant wait to see my friends again and maybe next time we'll go out of the country!

To all my friends, again I want to say thank you again, I miss you guys already, I love you and I'll see all next year! <3

Happy to be back! :D


Shirt, Jacket and Shoes: Zara
Watch: TAG Heuer

Hey guys!!!! Sorry for the looooooooooong wait! I've so wanted to blog for the past two 20 days but unfortunately, I forgot my laptop charger when I went back home in Manila! I can say that it was one of my memorable vacations because it was also my 20-something (hahaha!) birthday last 28th of June.

But!... I wont be telling everything that happened to me during my vacation just yet! (Tune in for my next blogpost! ^_^)




As I said, I was not able to do a blog post during my vacation and the reason why I'm not going to post any story about my vacation yet is because this look was supposed to be released while I was in Manila.

This look was shot a week before I leave going to Manila. I'm wearing a sporty- casual look using neutral colors with a little touch of blues. Shirt, Jacket and Shoes are all from Zara. Finished the look with super skinny jeans and a Tag Heuer dress watch.

I've got lots of things to tell you guys! See you all on my next blogpost! -_^


Crossing stuff on The List:

5 T-Shirts = 2 T-Shirts
7 Shoes = COMPLETE!

Always have fun!

June Celebrant! :D



Shirt & Sunglasses: Pull & Bear
Shorts: Zara


OMGH! June has finally arrived! I'm going to be a year older again! ^_^

My birthday is actually on June 28, but since I'm going on a two week vacation back in Manila (yes its short) just a few days from now, I might not have time to blog. I want to have a stress- free vacation since I'm only there for a short time, but I'm going to do a shoot there of course for my anniversary shoot.

June is not only my birthday... Its my two sisters' birthday month as well! The youngest would be June 06, and the other would be on June 26th! This week we celebrated our little Princess' birthday. And when I say celebrated, let say it turned out like this:


We had a HUGE birthday party for her, and she looked and acted just like a princess! When she waved like this I just died! She was so beautiful!


Isn't she adorable??? :D

This year, I wanted to make my birthday look as simple as possible since I'm not really a big b-day celebrant anymore like my little sister. lol! But I wanted to make it fun so I wore this nice tropical printed shirt (Pull & Bear) paired with shorts (Zara). Did this shoot in our backyard and made a huge mess, but it was fun! If only I could celebrate my birthday with friends back home in the Philippines and invite them here in UAE, it'll be a summer themed party with children party decorations and a lot of booze! hahaha!

Cant wait for my vacation next week! Whohoo!

1970's Incandescence



Shirt: Iconic

I am starting to get used on taking before sunset photographs. What I like about these photographs is that you can see how the sunlight is reflecting on my camera's lens. You might be a bit skeptic, but I assure you these photos are almost raw, I only did a couple of touches to make the photos a bit softer but other than that everything is pure and untouched.

I'm no photography expert but based on recent experience, this is how I took these pictures:
  • The key to this type of photograph is timing. Make sure you do your shoot at least around 20 mins before sunset so you have time to adjust yourself and the camera (if you're photographing a person or yourself using a tripod.).
  • Position yourself or the person you will photograph against the sunlight while camera should be facing the subject in a slightly acute angle.
  • Take a few test shots until subject's face and body are clear (I don't suggest using flash as it might affect the photo effect you are trying to target) and adjust camera/subjet's angle if neccessary.
  • The entire photo should be a bit saturated and the sunlight should be hitting the back of the subject.
  • If you want the light to reflect on the camera's lens, wait for the sun to dim.

In terms of my camera settings, I use a 35mm prime lens to blur the background (prime lenses are the best style blogger choice of lens IMHO). Put your camera on aperture mode, and make sure the aperture is at its lowest (around f/1.8).


I'm wearing a dark tropical print polo shirt (Iconic). I wanted to make this look a bit like the 70's to compliment the effect of the photograph so I wore a black suspenders, jeans and loafers topped with a newspaper boy cap.

What do guys think of this photo? :D
