Seeing "them" in person.
Went to the Port 88 Bazaar yesterday; not to shop but to see other bloggers like Ana from Anagon and Chictopia Style Icon Aisa of Drowning Equilibriums. It was actually my first time, attending an event, for the purpose of meeting fellow style bloggers. Usually, I don't do that because I can be extremely shy when it comes to situations like that.
Seems unbelievable right? But promise I'm really shy in person. I remember back when I went to Forever 21 opening, I refrained from looking at everyone in the eye not because I'm such a snob (sorry if I may seem like one). I just don't want to feel a certain awkwardness - the feeling I get when I'm not sure if I should smile, or look away, if I should ask for a picture or not, (even though I would love to), if I should go to the person and say "Hi!" or if I should actually talk to them.
I just... don't know what to do. And not knowing what to do is something that I don't want to experience because it's just sooo uncomfortable. At times, I even feel like shrinking because I get starstruck with all these pretty bloggers that I just want to hide away. Haha.
Ana's little cute space! I'm such an Anagon suki!
With Ana and Aisa, OMG they are soooo nice. At one look, I felt the connection and ease. The odd feeling is somehow inevitable but after a few exchange of chats, we'd loosen up and sustain a good conversation. It was sooo great meeting them both.
First looked for Ana because I really wanted to buy the "love" ring. It's our monthsary the next day so my boyfriend bought me the rings that I wanted. I'm broke so I didn't really purchase anything other than that. Not even those Shoeology oxfords and Pill sandals that I badly craved. Ana shared a bit about her bazaar experience as a retailer. For her shop, the first day came out with better sales than the next one. It's funny because just when I was about to ask her for a photo, she got to say it first a couple of seconds earlier.
Aisa's also the owner of Archive Clothing!
I told Ana that I've seen Aisa earlier but I chickened out because she was busy at that time. Good thing she encouraged me to approach her, Ana has all kind words for Aisa, telling me how friendly she is. I'm sure I would have regretted it if I didn't introduce myself because Aisa was surprisingly chatty and all-out friendly. I didn't even expect her to sound cute! Gosh she's so bakla! I love it!
Before I forget, join Aisa's Big Blog Blowout! She's giving away not only cool but LOTS and LOTS of prizes!
Aaaw. Aisa's such a sweetie!
Meeting both of them was such a delight. They're both nice and very down-to-earth. When I found out they met Kookie and Lloyda beforehand, I was like "Eeek! I'm such a fan of both!" How I wish I saw them too. They had a lot of photos with other bloggers and store owners. On the other hand, I didn't have much, because I stayed only for a while.
"Love" and crocodile rings from Anagon!
My boyfriend and I had a quick dinner before heading straight home. We ate at Sizzling Pepper Steak in Glorietta 5. Food was good. I ordered a chicken caesar salad and it was delicious. For dessert, we ordered a blueberry cheesecake ice cream. Rating: 8/10 pepper steaks.
About the outfit: I was inspired to do the print on print trend again since Bestie of Capricious Club, Sybil of Animated Confessions, Kookie of Death by Platforms and Kristy of Monochromatic made a collaboration.
My long animal-print cardigan was from my supplier for my Asian Fashion section of my online shop, F-STOP. Please drop by and check out my items for sale!
