When I was a kid, one of my favorite toys to play with were my Barbie dolls, Polly Pocket and *surprise* paper dolls. I don't know about you but being a kid of the 1990s, paper dolls were so much of a hit everywhere because they were so cheap and you can bring a lot to play at school. Even as a kid, I loved mixing and matching outfits, imagining them in my head days before I wear the outfit --- ah the downside of having a uniform at school. I pour my frustration into my dolls.
I think one of the reasons why I'm so hooked into Looklet is because it is like playing with paper dolls but lightyears advanced and with designer items to boot. Imagine my joy when Shen called to invite me to become her stylist partner for Promod's Style It For Me, Je Ne Sais Quoi Styling Contest.I had to say yes! After all, dressing up mannequins was super fun and really, it was more than using cardboards or dragging pixels to dress a virtual model. It's a mannequin! And our styles will be put up on an exhibit-slash-contest tomorrow, April 29th!
The theme said Je Ne Sais Quoi, which means "A certain something," but we highly doubt that meant crazy layers and un-wearable pieces. As someone incredibly frustrated with some Filipinas who have yet to dress up more adventurously, I was all game and excited for it.
Shen and I chose this ensemble as our official entry because the outfit says one thing:
"I'm chic and you and I know it."
a floral scarf and a long-strapped purse comprise our modern version of the
Audrey Hepburn outfit.
Just because Shen and I are still hung over from the all-Madonna episode
of Glee last week.
I just really would like to use the word.
Wish me and Shen lots of luck! And please say hi if you are going to be there!
