OOTN: Keep Calm and Sparkle On

Rockstars don't sparkle. They --- rock. The thing is, last May, the news on rankings came out and the company I've been working for four years now just emerged as the top life insurer of the country. It may not sound as big a deal if you aren't in the financial services industry but think of it this way: whatever it is that you're rooting for {your school, or the company that you're working for} just dominated every single aspect of the landscape --- THAT. That's the feeling.

Complete and utter victory.

Now, the best thing about Sun Life is that no good deed ever goes unrewarded. As its way of celebrating all the hard work every single person in the organization put through {that includes everyone from the Asia Leadership Team all the way to mail room folks and services, EVERYONE}, the company had a huge party in the form of a concert that spanned the 60s to 2000s.

The Bloomfields, The Dawn, Juan Miguel Salvador, Ogie Alcasid, Piolo Pascual, Itchyworms and Parokya ni Edgar each had a set for one night and since we rocked 2011 the most, we all had to come as rockstars.

And with that, let me share with you my non-rockstar outfit which I think still looked like a costume :D The real story with this was that I really wasn't prepared.

We had the same theme back in December and even then, I knew rockstar chic wasn't at all my peg and I always kind of looked err, grungier than I liked to be and there was no way I could come in a suit because frankly that was all I wanted to be wearing that week. I had made up my mind I wasn't about to wear shorts again in public and well, until the last minute, I wasn't sure what I'd wear. It was then that my brilliant friend, T, suggested I wear this beautiful sparkly Religioso dress and well, that's how I ended up looking all sparkly rock chic. I hope.

 I think at this time, I wasn't yet used to the weight of the lashes :D

I wasn't really making a statement {at least unintentionally, I was} with my yellow tributes from Parisian Shoes. In my sleepy haze that morning, that was the pair of shoes I grabbed instead of another, edgier pair. But I sure hope it works.

My eyelashes might as well have been that night's concert venue :D
