The united fashion bloggers of Cebu
We finally made the blog meet happen. Saturday night I was extremely hungover and grumpy from hitting the bottle too hard after Germany lost their 2nd game in the World Cup. Well, I could either go home and fall asleep mourning or stay up until sunrise. After my first drink it was an easy choice.. not so easy to get up the next day for a family lunch - after only 4 hours of drunken sleep. So, Saturday night, when Eden texted saying she was running late, I seriously almost fell asleep watching a game.. I was exhausted. It took all my strength to heave myself out of bed and get into my wedges. But it was totally worth it. Meeting Eden and Yves was a breath of fresh air, what a cool duo.. and Yapi was just as lovely in real life as she is on her blog. And when everyone else started arriving, it was a flurry of a meet and greet, topped with the fight against the typical loud music. I felt like a bit of an oldie amidst a sea of young hipsters. It was my first time at Loft and I was pleasantly surprised.. if only I had more energy to do anything but nurse my drink and snap the occasional photo. Typical me.
The next day we met up for the shoot and IT. WAS. AMAZING. I cant wait to share the photos when the article comes out.. Armand is quite the talented young photographer, Yves is like a walking menswear ad, Eden is like a sister from another mister and the rest of the new breed of Cebu's stylistas are just beyond radical. You'll see.
