artwear 2010

here are some photos from artwear 2010 last week where i volunteered. we were given specific wardrobe instructions (all black ensemble, business casual but still fashionable, no plunging, not too short, comfy shoes) so my outfit was a bit well...like all of those specific instructions. HAHA! and i also came from my 8-5 job that day so forgive my haggard look. we had to stand and work the whole time too (from 5pm-12am) so there was really no chance to retouch. i wasn't able to take decent pictures too but thanks to another volunteer Rigo Alvarado of alvaradofineart.com/blog, i actually have decent photos to show my readers ;)

i decided to volunteer for this event since i'm so used to this kind of scene in the Philippines and i just had to see what it was like here. well, i'm glad that there are actually people here like me. i haven't exactly seen a room full of fashionistas ever since i got here so thanks to this event; my soul is now rejuvenated...although i must say that the show was a bit amateurish compared to the ones i've attended back home. but i'm giving the alberta fashion scene another chance...i won't judge until i see their fashion week ;) 

a big shout out to the new friends i've made, my co-volunteers: 
coritha, shar, betha, steph, tayler and rigo!

Looks like it was a really fun time! So great of you to volunteer your time.

You may have been given very specific instructions about what to wear, but you made the outfit all your own with that super fierce belt!

It was so nice to meet you. Especially someone like minded like myself in this city.

Unfortunately, I think we're pretty strapped for fashionable things to do in Calgary. We should move to Toronto.

P.S. That picture of me is horrible! At least my lipstick stayed on though, right? HA!
