Feeling that Movie Magic8/26/2012 05:18:00 PM
There's something about a day that's slightly overcast at around sunset that gives off the vintage classic movie feel, don't you think? Coming from a lunch and movie date watching the testosterone-filled epic-ly awesome movie that is The Expendables 2 with Kenny, I figured I can try to create a balance by being, well, girly for the day! :D
As requested, Kenny wanted me to wear this "kyootie patootie" (super cute) dress. He says he misses seeing me in dresses since I wear girly shorts or pants for the past few weeks. So, to compromise, I picked several items of clothing to keep it girly, and still keep it me :)
Kids, you shouldn't do this. Do you know how many cars I had to watch out for before having these taken? I had to make sure that there weren't ANY vehicles coming. Timing is key! Because safety is of utter importance.
Not to mention it was drizzling-raining on-and-off that late afternoon too. The light was all "Now you see me, now you don't. Heeheehee!". It's so temperamental! Grrr! D: #photographyproblems
I don't know why, but every time Kenny's taking my photos, I always have at least one photo taken that I didn't know of. Till I'm about to upload it. SNEA-KY! D:
Candy grey sleeveless cover up
Just in case it gets too hot (as it does in the Philippines even if it's raining), I have my Goody elastics on my wrists ready for an emergency ponytail :)
Petite Monde dress for SM Dept. Store (old)
And yes, thankfully I had an umbrella ready. Can't get sick now!
SM Accessories studded sling bag (old)
Nothing like a few pops of color taken from my dress to keep things interesting.

I apologize for the messy hair. Kenny kept tipping my hat off with the umbrella, and the wind keeps messing my hair. They're like a tandem like that. Poooo
Anyways, after taking those shots for mah blog, it's time to cam-whore! \:D/

As for these, since Kenny's in the photos with me, we relied on someone who usually takes my photos when I can't find anyone else to take them for me: My trusty ol' Tripod and his partner, the Self-timer! \:D/
Then it started to rain... So we thought we can milk it, and milk it we did :P There's something about the rain that makes things romantic.. Again, Kids, don't try this at all! I had to play patintero (a kids game here in the Philippines that's played on the streets where you have to clear all hindrances to get to the other side without getting caught) and patiently time my way to cross the street so accidents won't happen.
