day 30want to leave a comment?
I’ve had this post up for a while but I’ve been procrastinating on publishing it. I guess I just didn’t want the 30 days to end. But it’s an inevitability. So here it goes :(
The Platform event was our culminating event. As the first convention for young creative culture, it was truly befitting to have Day 30 there. Here I am posing on the Postura wall made by the designers of the, “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” logo. It’s a lovely mishmash of flora and fashion by Sugar Perez and Monica Angeles!
Up close, you’ll see my dainty Mich Dulce dress is very R Rated, but the print is precisely why I love this naughty but nice collection of hers. The construction and cut is girly but once you see what’s on it, you can’t help but be disturbed.
A collection of rings that I can only bring out on days I don’t have to tap on the keyboard. The pink voodoo doll is special because I got it on a road trip around Laguna called Viaje del Sol. It was made in Patis Tesoro’s hideaway, Kusina Salud. Aside from amazing food, they sell all sorts of fun local trinkets there. The white frilly one is new from Crave More :)

The Postura Project experience has been a truly amazing one. I got to meet and work with new and talented people. And I got introduced to an array of Filipino brands that I would never have stumbled upon if I hadn’t done this.
Before the 30 day challenge, I made sure to stock up on feature-worthy brands and for the longest time, I’ve wanted to buy a Rags 2 Riches bag. They employ the women of Payatas to create their cute quirky designer bags. They had to be part of the project! Â But alas, whenever I dropped by their store in Cubao X, it was closed. (They sell weekdays only!) So Â I was so happy when I met their marketing head, Crystal Anievas at a party. She hooked me up. Now, it looks like we’re going to be working together for the brand! Power to serendipity!
I also got to meet and interview the creator of Filip+Inna, Len Cabili. She is one awe-inspiring lady. The dress I’m wearing is her design but infused with the creativity and workmanship of the weavers of Lake Sebu. Please read more about her brand on my blog musamanila.blogspot.com.Â They embody the Postura Project spirit to the core.
Thank you to Marlo Ongpin for the photos.

This was taken at a party after a couple of rounds. My photographer and I just had a blast taking these shots because I always get a little chinky eyed and chuckly after a couple of rounds- thereby, making it very difficult to get a decent shot. Good thing, the photographer was my boyfriend. He’s such a sport and he was tipsy as well.
I’m wearing one of my first Filipino-inspired buys, an Ifugao jacket. I’ve had it for a while and it’s still a classic. I can pair it with all sorts of things and it goes splendidly with my new Crave More necklace. I like how gold and sparkly it is. Definitely, modernizes any outfit.

Thank you to the wonderfully nerdy Marlo Ongpin.

Still high from the Platform Show last night. Check out Team Manila’s awesome photo set at the Daily Grind Clothing. The days leading up to the event were so crazy hectic, we’re all lagging behind on our posts. This was actually taken last week. I can’t believe I just have 3 days ago until the challenge is accomplished. Time for fresh blood to start wearing something Filipino everyday. Calling all stylish and courages camwhores! Let yourselves be known. Tweet us with the hashtag #posturaPH or join the Postura Facebook page.
