Starting today, I will be posting my weekend madness featuring my random thoughts, tales, hang-ups and wish lists and anything that comes out of my mind in connection with what this blog is all about, of course. Let me start with a hang-up!
It’s November and it’s the same month I got the chance to wear one of Cebu’s young designer’s creation. Back in 2011 when my cousin was about to get married, I was chosen to be one of the bridesmaids. The rule was to wear anything we like as long as it matches the wedding’s motif. Of course, that’s always something to look forward to. Not every bridesmaid are given the freedom to choose their dress style. I was lucky enough to know someone who can provide me the dress I like. A talented and a good friend, James Cañete (may he rest in peace), handed me his creations in drawings. Choosing one was actually hard, I wanted to have all the designs he made for me, however, I only had to choose one.
Since the dress had to be long, I chose one that will not cover my shoulders for it to be balanced and so I won’t look covered from head to toe. I also wanted a simple one to not steal everyone’s attention. Of course, the center of attraction should be the couple especially the bride. The dress came with an instruction on how to wear it and what accessories to pick by James himself. I was also told on how to style my hair. I’m such a lucky client. Lol!
This made me missed my long hair. Now, that’s a hang-up! I wore this only once. I might look for an event that might need me to wear this one again. Hahaha. What do you think of this dress?
P.S.: Took the photos above using a smartphone only. That’s pretty obvious, I guess!
I love this lilac shade and it looks beautiful on you.
Lovely…you picked the right color…

Cheryl, you look very elegant!! Lilac suits you so well. It is great that the designer provided you with instructions on how to style your dress and how to do your hairstyle.
I love how balanced this dress is. Perfect for not showing too much skin and it is what makes this dress sexy.
I like the shade. That's actually my favorite color. 🙂
Such a beautiful creation, really a lucky client!
love your dress. i just realized that our blogs' theme came from the same designer. 😀
You're indeed gorg Love the dress! But, I feel like that color won't suit me 🙁
That dress looks damn pretty on you.
The dress is sooo pretty. And i think letting the bridesmaids choose their own gowns for the wedding is a great idea, too. 🙂
you look like a goddess on that dress but your eyes are kind of sad,
You're like a Goddess with that dress. 🙂 I don't think long dress suits me because I have a short legs. Haha!
Very greek inspired dress! Looks good on you 🙂
Beautiful! It looks very Greek inspired!
Wow! It looks awesome. You look like a greek goddess. It looks good on you. Nice creation and I love the accessories:)

Great outfit! You're truly a goddess in disguise. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
The dress looks awesome. It looks good on you. I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Thanks for sharing this!
I love the dress! And the color! It definitely fits you perfectly.
Love the color and the texture of the dress. You look so great with it.
It really looked good on you! Love the design,the color and that accessory on your left shoulder. 🙂
Your dress is so gorgeous, I love the one side off shoulder and the tassel.
That's a very elegant outfit! Love the pearl, chain detailing on the shoulder. Just spectacular. The color & one shoulder style is just perfect!
The dress is very elegant in design, makes the wearer look taller because of its long vertical folds. I am imagining it would look so good in red or green as well.
You look like a fairy or enchantress with that dress. It's perfect for you.
Purple is my fave color!!! I agree that you look taller on that style of gown
The dress is really nice, reminiscent of a Greek goddess! You should wear it out more often, hopefully more formal events will come up.
Cool article! Weekend madness! I so love the concept and the color and the style of your dress. It's so greek goddess!
Wow. That dress just screams goddess! I love it! 😀
