how to wear jeans

I was so thrilled last week when bridal gown designer Michi Calica asked me to style a few outfits for a bloggers event she and her sister, the lovely ladies behind Sisters On Style, hosted with Meralco last Friday. I had to come up with five different ways of wearing jeans, which I was supposed to briefly talk about at the event, but was unable to due to conflicting schedules. So, instead, I sent Michi pictures to use for her presentation, and thankfully, she said the audience enjoyed the segment. Yay! Congratulations to them on a successful event!

I had so much fun dressing up, and I thought I'd share with you guys what I'd put together! Which look would you go for?

Outfit #1: geek chic

  8. What a fun challenge that they gave you! I wish all sponsors/ store owners were that creative. Instead of just saying 'feature me'. :P Awesome opportunity.

    Predictably, I like the classic look best. However you always shine in bohemian wear. It's the hair!
