Last August 19, I attended a photo shoot for a Manila Bulletin and Oxygen collaboration. The photos, along with an article, were featured in a blogger issue for Manila Bulletin's Style Weekend magazine which came out just last week. 

The shoot was set up against the beautiful, rugged walls of the historic Intramuros. The theme of the shoot was "Sartorialist" where we had to showcase our style whilst mashing up Oxygen pieces with our own clothes.

For the first look (as seen above), I paired my grey harems with a white loose top from Oxygen (which I've been wanting to acquire ever since I saw it during the Oxygen Party). I also threw in a striped blazer and bad ass boots to add character to the whole look.

 For the second look, I grabbed a pair of dark wash denims and a loose grey pocket tank (from Oxygen as well) and mashed them up with a B/W vintage blazer. The look was very Parisienne chic.

The photo shoot was fun albeit a bit tiring. 

And here are some behind-the-scenes snaps:

I looooved my make up!

Rosanna Aranaz of Little Miss Dress Up was also part of the shoot.

Here are a few of our "group" shots:

Now here's the final product:
