Much thanks to Jacky for being an awesome trooper when we took these pictures for that Seventeen Style Council Contest. Everything is just so comfortable when you have someone you know shooting you (wait, that kind of sounds weird...haha). Getting that support from friends and family uplifts my spirit.
Let me tell you how much I adore those flat leather boots. I love it so much that I've worn it in the last three shoots and almost every time I go for my IELTS classes. It's just bad ass that way. I get "the stares" because my boots have a mind of its own. I get to cross the streets easily and doors are opened for me. It hypnotizes the people into staring at it and saves me from any of those awkward eye contact when I ride on the jeepneys. Sometimes I think, it gets way too much attention.
I must teach it to behave. I must control its power.
