My 2011 Year-End Report : PART 1 of 3

Sneaking a text before the PFW shows start!
My goodness! How time flies! How is everybody doing this January 2012? Scratch that, more like FEBRUARY 2012!!!  Honestly, I barely felt the holidays... Not that I didn't try to immerse myself in the Christmas Spirit... But with work and deadlines, a death in the family and all my other extracurriculars, time was really the enemy!

BUT you just have to keep going right and make the most out of everything?  SO I know that I've been more than remiss in updating my blog so first off, A BIG THANK YOU to my online friends who have been so nice and sweet as to leave me messages while I was on my blog hiatus! Reading them, really warmed my heart! Secondly, as I had promised, I'll be posting my backlog posts from last year in a 3-part post!  (Talk about going back in time, like way back cause I'm talking months here! HAHA) Though I hope you'll enjoy this trip down memory lane with me!

That said, here we go...

PFW SS 2012 Day6
October 27, 2011

It was all bout Lace and Leather for the MEGA team on the 6th day.  With the cray cray happenings at the office, I just pulled out a lace number from my closet and kept it simple that day.  Now, I dunno if I've talked about it enough but my sister, BEYA, is very crafty and she made these feather earrings just the night before!  (Isn't she the BESTEST of the BEST?! :D)  Now I hope my haggard interior doesn't show too much in these photos!

PFW SS 2012 Day 7
October 28, 2011

You could have guessed it right and the theme for the MEGA team that day was Citrine! Just timely might I add since just a couple of days prior PFW, I fell in love with this neon motorcycle jacket.  It looked so refreshing I didn't even think twice about the purchase.  

On top of that, the dress that I wore that day was designed by me and my sister for our brand WHITE CALF.  It's a made-to-order dress that can come in solid colors or prints! (And yes, White Calf is slowly branching out to making fashionable and trendy dresses for your one-of-a-kind needs! OK more of this on a later post!  BUT if you want to order this dress, just leave us a message via our facebook page:

Anyways, if you haven't noticed my style yet, I'm not really big on going girly a lot of the time.  While I love dresses and florals and the occasional ruffles detail, I tone my burst of femininity with loose pieces so it could be a jacket, a blazer, a vest or what not.  So here's a peek at what I wore that day to the shows.


Neon motorcycle jacket  :  CC-00
Printed cut-out dress  :  WHITE CALF

Forest green patent belt  :  Bangkok Souk
Tan heels  :  TOPSHOP

Seems I always get caught texting! HAHA

Just re-posting my first 2 articles with Megastyle!  Hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did writing them!


MEG Up & Coming Celebrities
November 4, 2011

Its been on for quite awhile now that MEG Magazine is revamping and is no longer the teeny bopping magazine from when it started.  Like its audience, MEG has grown up and these are exciting times for both the magazine and its loyal readers!  I am truly honored to be a part of this change and was extremely thrilled about telling everyone about it.  
So last November, MEG held a party series themed "Up & Coming".  It was every Friday of November at the KYSS Bar where it was a celebration of successful young women and the most stylish and influential young movers of this generation.  Young celebrities, fashion designers, university it-girls and fashion bloggers hosted the weekly events. 

Young celebrity sisters, Lauren and Megan Young were the featured ladies for the first Friday.  It was a great kick off with guests treated to a fashion show by Jellybean.  Also hosted this event and styled the sisters for the night!
