#DERNIER2015

I asked for a classic and very simple gown from Frankie for our graduation ball. (He made my JS Prom gown as well; see here) Frankie also happens to have designed my mom's wedding gown! I absolutely love wearing this color and a lot of people say it suits me well too ;)

LATELY

For the sake of a post (haha) I'm sharing a few photos from my social networking accounts for those of you who haven't seen them yet :) And share a little bit about my 2015...

This is the first OOTD I posted this 2015 on my Instagram (@chescavillanueva). I wore this for a day out with my girls at Alabang, then later that night to the Night Sky Cinema in Nuvali.

At school, it was Teacher's Day and the seniors had to be the teachers for a day and this was what I wore.

This is a picture I took of the polaroid of me and my wonderful date on the 36 rose bouquet he gave me on the night of our graduation ball. I will be sharing more later on and of course of what I wore :)

I am officially a high school graduate!!! This is the reason I've been so "busy" lately HAHA but seriously though, senior year was tough. I'm very thankful that I got through it and that it's over, but it's also kinda sad... They say high school's the best 4 years of your life; we'll see ;)

LONG OVERDUE

It's been a long time! I don't want to fill this post with the reasons why I haven't been posting though :( haha! Anyway, here's an outfit I wore to a dear friend's debut last April. She chose me to be part of her 18 candles and it was a must to wear blue. I didn't have the time and money to shop so I came up with this ensemble in such a short period of time. :-)

TWO WEEKS TOO LATE

Exactly two weeks ago (March 8, 2014) was my first prom! It was 1920s inspired. And of course, the main reason why I'm sharing this with you is because of what I wore. :)
This is my absolute favourite shot from that day. Can't get over how tall I look here. Haha. I salute my dad's photography skills. Although he was so busy, so I took over the editing. All the black and white photos I just filtered in my iTouch. :D And all those that aren't are untouched. :)

Frankie did an amazing job with the gown! He always pays attention to detail. The lace and the beading was exquisite. It very much deserves to be appreciated. He even specifically told me to have my hair side swept so that the back part of the gown would be seen all night, which was also what I had in mind! :D

"LOST BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN"

So... It's been bothering me that the last time I published a post was exactly two months ago. Fortunately, I remembered I've still got these portraits that I haven't shown you guys. These photos are from the same shoot in my post Milk & Chocolate I and II. BTW, I got the quote "Lost But Never Forgotten" from the movie Lara Croft, one of my all time favourite movies. :-)

Couldn't show full body pictures. =)) Wasn't exactly as fit back then than I am now. 
Just a little info about me: My fondness of black and gold dresses started with this one. Why am I sharing this with you? 'Cause it's prom season!! And my dress happens to be black and gold. :D I'll be sharing with you sometime soon the inspiration and sketch of the gown. :-)
