The Red Hair and My First Ever Event as a Blogger

Hi everyone! Have you noticed my ombre hair? What do you think about it?

I always end up with a midriff top and skirty shorts when I feel like wearing a laid back outfit to wear. It's comfortable and easy. 
It's been a crazy weekend for me, I just blogged about the fashion forum and never got to mention that it was my first event as a blogger. I need to thank Davao Bloggers for it. I never had the guts to sign up for these kinds of events before because I don't have the luxury of time being a new Mom. But I can't miss it this time.
 I was really hesitant at first but I made friends and enjoyed it. Will be looking forward for more!!

In fact, my next blog posts will be the two fashion shows I attended just recently. Now I really need a good camera. Time for saving up!!!

Abreeza's First Fashion Forum

"It's also about comfort, not just fashion." - Luis Espiritu


Agreeing to this, I am so blessed to be one of those bloggers who witnessed Abreeza's first ever fashion forum last Thursday, July 17 featuring Stylist, fashion writer, and professor  Luis Espiritu, who also happened to be the head stylist of Ayala's Style Origin. Style Origin is Ayala's fashion campaign which was presented with two fashion shows: Mensweek Fashion Show by Ariel Lozada and Community Fashion Show by Jackie Aquino.

I just mentioned comfort as one of the factors in deciding what to wear at work in one of my previous posts and so I am thrilled to know that Mr. Espiritu takes comfort as an issue to fashion. But not just that, Mr. Espiritu mentioned how dynamic Davao fashion is. One of his suggestions for Davao is for us to focus on how to create designs through indigenous materials. What lingered in me is that in every fashion talk I will always be reminded that fashion all boils down to just being yourself.

Abreeza's Fashion Forum will be a monthly event that will be a platform for fashion discussion and more. I will be looking forward to attending if again I will be given the chance. I also was invited to the fashion shows which I will be blogging about in my next post.

The first fashion forum was attended by people from the local fashion and lifestyle circles with DJ Jon Game's music and SumoSam.

Thanks so much Ms, Ria Jose of Davao Bloggers for inviting me in this event.
