Belle Camilla

She's not a saint, she's not what you think, she's an actress...whoa
She's better known for the things that she does on the mattress...whoa

You're wrong, Taylor Swift. She's better known for wearing couture.

No amount of vintage dresses give you dignity

Right, because dissing people who has "wronged" you in songs is very dignified. Ps. I did NOT watch your concert.

Someone should give this girl a proper blockbuster. I heart you Camilla Belle. Always have. Always will.

She has a knack for getting it right for red carpet events but she has yet to distinguish herself for her off-duty style. When not in couture, her sartorial choicest tend to veer on the safe side. Still very pretty, but being a red carpet fixture and all, people expect a little "oomph" from her.

On Short Hair

I stumbled upon this article from The Glamourai's link and found it interesting and very much true. Having short hair has its ups and downs and this pretty much summarizes it.

from American(?) Vogue
by Joan Juliet Buck

Joan Juliet Buck, a devoted short-hair convert, explains why it makes a difference.

Hair is time.

Women with short hair always look as if they have somewhere else to go. Women with long hair tend to look as if they belong where they are, especially in California. Short hair takes a short time. Long hair takes a long time. Long hair moves faster than short hair. Long hair tells men that you are all woman, or a real woman, or at the very least a girl. Short hair always makes them wonder. Short hair makes children ask each other --usually at the school-yard gate, when parents are late-- "Are you a boy or girl?" Men married to women with short hair should not have affairs with women who have long hair kept up with many little pins and combs. Once you have cut your hair you have to remember to wear lipstick, but you can put away the brush, elastics, and the black barrettes in the form of shiny leaves with rhinestone hearts. When you cut your hair you lose a nose and gain a neck. A neck is generally better than a nose. It does not need to be powdered, except on extreme occasions. It does, however, need to be washed more often.

With short hair you suddenly dislike the month of March, when the wind blows down the back of your neck. With short hair you begin to crave pearl necklaces, long earrings, and a variety of sunglasses. And you brush your teeth more often. Short hair removes obvious femininity and replaces it with style. When it starts growing out a little and losing its style, you have to wear sunglasses until you can get it to the hairdresser. That's why you need a variety. Short hair makes you aware of subtraction as style. You can no longer wear puffed sleeves or ruffles; the neat is suddenly preferable to the fussy. You eye the tweezers instead of the blusher. What else can you take away? You can't hide behind short hair. Your nape is exposed. Men put their hands around your neck instead of stroking your long locks. You can only pray they have friendly intentions. The backs of your ears show, your jaw line is clear to anyone watching, and you realize --perhaps for the first time-- how wide the expanse of skin is between cheekbone and ear.

You may look a little androgynous, a little unfinished, a little bare. You will look elegant, as short hair requires you to keep your weight slightly below acceptable levels. However, the first time you wear a bathing suit with short hair, you will feel exceptionally naked. People who used to look straight at you will love you in profile. Short hair makes others think you have good bones, determination, and an agenda. The shape of your skull is commented on, so are its contents. They can pick you out in a crowd, and you can be recognized from behind, which can be good or bad. But your face is no longer a flat screen surrounded by a curtain: the world sees you in three dimensions.

Chase to the cut.

Of hotair balloons and roadtrips

Last saturday, we decided to forgo sleep and take an hour and a half roadtrip to clark for the annual hot air balloon fest. Arrived there around 4am, and this queue greeted our sleepy heads. lol.

The Balloons were inflated round 6am and were pretty much over an hour later. The whole day was outlined with other aerial related activities, but the highlight was pretty much it.

Gemma, come back...

The former It model's first editorial in yearssss....

Mondo Guerra

I know its a bit late, but I just finished watching Season 8 of Project Runway. Christian Siriano (S04) has always been a favorite of mine and has been so far the most successful winner of the show. Mondo, this season's runner-up and whom i think is the more deserving winner, is clearly making a bigger name for himself rather than Gretchen Jones with his shirts being sold-out and celebrity clients asking him to dress them. Hoping to get myself on a Mondo day of the dead shirt soon :)
