We’ve been MIA for 2 months on our challenges (Sorry! Lorn’s previous post can explain why) – but the good news is we are back now on regular posting! Well, at least this blog linkup is. Now, since we wanted to make up with the lost time and we super duper miss your awesssoome style, we decided this month’s challenge should be a perfect combo!! And no one does it better in a drool-worthy bag paired with maleficent like lipstick!
As new year kicks in, we are often driven to try a new exercise, add a hobby or find ourselves switching from food choices to another for a healthier take. But there is still this common viral thing we do regardless of our gender – the love to splurge! Even if we already own few pairs of black stilettos, got a cocktail dress that has been sitting in our closet for months with a price tag on or added one in our pool of gadgets as a birthday present – still we can’t resist the thought of buying and upgrading our simple treasures at the end of each year. One could argue that’s what the bonuses are for?
Though I have nothing against new buys and recent hauls, in fact, I am guilty of being a hoarder myself, what would you generally do if this year of the water horse everything we pay evidently goes up like food, taxes, oil hikes, benefit contributions. So this January instead of sharing us the new, why not share with us something old from your treasures. Whether it is a hand-me-down from your mom or sisters, pre-loved items from your friends, a re-purposed DIY out of your old bin or simply a very old thing you treasure the most – link it up here and we’d truly love to see you werk it!
What is a party without that ever popular black dress? Let’s admit it, it is every girl’s favorite glam armor beside that it spells timeless elegance, this black dress insanely flatters our body without a fuss! No wonder why it has become a closet staple , from a plain black sabrina cut dress that fashion icon Audrey Hepburn popularly worn up to gorgeous leatherette that has put little black dresses to a newer, hotter level.

If there’s one trend which became so infectious among us today and generally considered as a perk of this new age technology we are living in, it would be the term coined by all – #selfie. From a five year old who hold an iPad, in between washroom breaks of a beauty queen even global influential ladies, down to the Hollywood train wrecks and racy reality stars – one thing is common, they’re all snapping everything out for the great world wide web to see.
But who are we to complain, our social media sites are continuously bombarded with photos after photos of beautiful women, and since we share the same sentiments like Ali does in her article at POC, we’ve concluded to do a make-up #selfie challenge for this month. Though, this challenge only asks two things from you,
- We want your face with make-up on, so please no racy or nude photos.
- Answer these four questions to make posting fun
- How did you make your #selfie special?
- What’s your inspiration for your #selfie?
- In general, what do you think of #selfies? Do you like it or not?
- What, if any, is your favorite selfie by a celebrity on the Internet?
Oh a shout-out thanks to Ali for allowing us to use this concept, see you soon dear!
Because we take pride of being Filipinos so much, we’ve decided to put the next PCS challenge to a higher level. This August, as the whole nation is celebrating “Buwan ng Pambansang Wika“, we are also taking part in this nationalistic celebration by encouraging you, our dearest readers to show us your very own style icon.
The rule is just simple, your style icon must be a proud Filipino citizen. So whether she/he is a musician, fashion designer, celebrity, model, politician, beauty queen, socialite, a friend, a family member or any Filipino from all walks of life; we want you to stand proud by showing us his/her signature style and tell us in what way it influences your own take in fashion.
Just be back here on August 21st for the actual link-up, so you have at least a week to keep us more and more amazed and super thrilled with your entries. Now, who do you want to be for the next Pinay Curvies Swag challenge ei?
