While helping a friend buy clothes for his girlfriend, I stumbled across a bargain $10 dress that I needed to have! As soon as I grabbed it, I didn’t want to let it go! I have always been looking for a backless dress with a cut-out heart but could never find my size at the price I was willing to pay.
Ramon and I wanted to try another levitating shot. This time, we edited it differently as Adobe Photoshop CS6 introduced a new feature we wanted to try out.
Ramon was still borrowing Lamah’s amazing lens for this shoot and it was able to capture the light perfectly that day!
The grass was slightly long that day so you weren’t able to see my light denim ankle boots that I snapped up for a bargain $10 a few years back! YAY for bargain shopping! <3
The cut-out heart <3
Although a blurry shot, this was my favourite photo from the set and considering to change my blog banner to this photo.
We were trying to capture as much movement as we could in the dress.
We also found a white picket fence at Parramatta Park. Too bad it was just a tad bit too cold to continue and a a bit too many people also shooting about that day.
This is by far one of my most favourite shoots Ramon’s done so far! ^_^
I’ll have a couple more outfit posts to upload this week in collaboration with Crazy Horse Clothing! Stay tuned <3
Navy Cut-Out Heart Dress: La Belle
Blue Ankle Boots: Rubi
Location: Fagan Park
Today we thought we’d get a few outfit posts done and gather content for my blog, besides the 366 Projects, I really don’t have any other material to blog about nowadays >.< My life is such a bore! *yawn*
Along with Brian, we headed over to Fagan Park and for a sunny yet windy and super cold day, it was packed! Last time we were at Fagan Park, it was empty and we had the whole place to ourselves and thought it would be the same but no, we were so wrong. Everyone decided to take their kids and dogs out on a cold and windy winter’s day to the park… WHY?!
We did manage to get a couple of photos at the Mediterranean Garden which was so beautiful! - As you can tell my unamused face, I wasn’t too happy with the amount of people we at the park.
My favourite photo from the set <3
I just recently purchase the mint blazer for a bargain $10! - YAY for bargain shopping! Due to the cold weather, I’ll have to wait till Spring to wear it *gutted*
Brian bought his picnic rug (which reminds me, I really need to buy one of those) for the shoot too ^_^ The fallen autumn leaves were still there and it made a really great location to shoot at. Unfortunately, with the washed out colour of my outfit that day, it was really hard for the boys to take a lot of photos.

We finally remembered that the Vivid Sydney event was being held this year so we decided to check it out!
“Sydney will once again be transformed into a spectacular canvas of light, music and ideas when Vivid Sydney takes over the city after dark” - In other words, there will be music, lights and attractions in Sydney after the sunset.
We were expecting a kaleidoscope of colours after seeing photos from the previous 4 years Vivid Sydney has been running and all the vibrant colours projected onto the Opera House, we were disappointed that all that was projected onto the Opera House this year was a white canvas with a man and a woman rolling around… literally!
I’m sorry to sound rude towards the artists “URBANSCREEN” but it was 10 degrees at night, it’s winter and watching a woman rolling around in shorts and a tee was not appealing to me at all!
The view of Circular Quay from the top ^_^ I thought that the sculptures were the main attractions of Vivid Sydney! Unfortunately, Ramon started to lose interest in Vivid Sydney earlier than expected so we didn’t manage to properly do a tour of all the sculptures on display behind Circular Quay or towards the Opera House.
A gigantic chandelier and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was beautiful!
Museum of Contemporary Art Australia had the best display of the night! There was a light display on loop and it was amazing to just sit on the grass and watch it over and over again.
Photo by Brian ^_^ basically what you had to do was ride the bike and the faster you pedal, the brighter the wings became.
Nearby there was an awesome (yet very loud) interactive display which was controlled by noise. Depending on how loud you could yell/scream, you light up a certain number of lights!
Oh and yes, behind me, you can actually play naughts and crosses!
Customs House had an amazing light display, however when we managed to find it, the place was surrounded by photographers and spectators so here’s the best photo I’ve found of the Customs house from the amazing photographer Craig Jewell.
I really want to go again next year and fingers and toes crossed that next year will be more “vivid” and vibrant ^_^

Here are the 2nd set of photos of my Gradient Maxi from the wonderful people at Sugarlips Apparel ^_^
Super close up of my face which has been heavily edited >.< Ramon’s taken his time with removing my eye bags yet again! - Thank you!
Me being silly… Ramon wasn’t movement in the skirt but because the slits were on both sides, it didn’t move much when I was twirling so I was attempting to high-kick x can-can the skirt up in most uncomfortable shoes I’d ever owned!
I can’t express enough how much I love the slits on either side of the skirt! It makes it so easy to sit down without having to worry you’d have any sort of indecent exposure ^_^
Location: Parramatta Park
I had the honour of joining Sugarlips Apparel’s Bloggers Program and was sent an amazing gradient maxi! The skirt was such an amazing colour and as soon I ripped open the bag (yea, I got a little excited when I saw it) and it was so soft and I couldn’t wait to take photos of it! - I was so excited that I forgot to steam the creases out >.<
It is a sheer, see-through material with lining on the top portion of the skirt. - Something that I love! Don’t you just hate when you buy a skirt and when you step out into the sun, it’s unknowingly see-through from top to bottom?!
I paired the skirt with a sheer black blouse with a cut out back ^_^ I initially paired it with a lace vest but Ramon (my adviser) advised me that it looked out of place and that the black blouse was a more suitable choice.
We were trying to get as much movement with the skirt as much as possible but the wind wasn’t very strong that day. This is my favourite photo of this set!
I love how there are 2 slits on either side, it makes it so much easier to walk! It also gives you the option to tie it on the side to create a 3/4 skirt! ^_^
Photo of the back of the blouse <3
Location: Mt Wilson
Ramon’s been editing a video he took at Mt Wilson so these photos got to me late after he gave up doing the editing frame by frame! - There’s so much work involved with videos and editing! Also, it doesn’t help that I ALWAYS ask to have my awful eyebags removed! >.<
This is Ramon’s set of photos from our amazing trip to Mt Wilson one weekend! We were so stoked to a see of trees with red leaves and after waiting a while for a bunch of photographers to finish snapping their photos, it was our turn!
I wish I had super powers! The boys took these photos using multi-shot (or whatever the correct term for them is) and it looks like I am levitating the leaves on my own <3
With the help of Brian, Ramon managed to take a proper photo of the “falling” leaves without me looking like I’m magically levitating them with non-existent powers :P
While driving around Mt Wilson to find more locations to take photos of, we found a stop filled with fallen leaves and a thick branch. The little kid inside me came out with a “I’m going to swing on this branch, ready?”.
In my previous blog post, I showed you a photo of Ramon literally in a tree and these were the photos he was able to produce with this sort of “extreme” photography ^_^
Again, I got bitten by so many mosquitoes ;_; I really need to include insect repellent on my shopping list!
We finished the day at La Perouse for the beautiful sunset! After 4:30pm, it got dark so quickly! It was such a good day and I love that we didn’t waste any minute of it! I do hope I’ll be more motivated to do days like this, I really need to stop being so lazy!
For the first time in a while, I’m behind with blogging! I finally have so much material to blog about but I’ve been too busy to blog lately so I apologize in advanced for blog posts that are related to events that happened a month ago <3
