green + gold

Ta da!

This, i would like to be known as my first official attemp at styling someone, (its my mom actually nonetheless i treated her like how any professional would :P) the occasion was for a relations 60th birthday celebration. I styled her from head to toe, including her hair, make up, clothes and accessories.

01. The front and back view of the not bad at all for a first time hair do. I’ve never used velcro hair rollers before so i had my reservations but i must say i’m very pleased with the result. Not much heat was applied which is good for the hair. All i did was blow dry the damp hair, which an anti frizz hair serum was applied to before since her hair tend to be frizzy. After drying, i placed curlers in place and allowed it to set overnight. Refer to this tutorial for guidance (they used hot rollers but i tried it with velcro ones ). A simple process which took me about an hour to do.

02. The rattan clutch which is suitable for any day functions or even night functions depending on how you match and pair it with the whole look. Since it was a day affair it not suitable to carry a flash or heavily embellished clutch.

03. & 04. Inspiration came from these beautiful clutches from Kotur. They come in a variety of colour but the natural wood colour ones are the best.

05. The Basket Bag my mom used to carry to work when she was a teacher back in her younger days. It is still in good condition except its missing a cover which was removed to re-use it now as a flower arrangement basket. How creative.

06. A full body shot pose. The shoes were so sweet.

07. Mom and Dad at home posing for me.

08. Mom at the birthday party looking beautifull then ever.
