We arrived around 2:40 pm, just a few minutes before my first talk started. So I just took a quick peek around the hall to see what's happening. It was literally like a fair. There were many booths of different things: a food booth, beauty booths, techie booths, hair care booths, body care booths, a tarot card reading booth and other activity booths. I would've tried the wall climbing activity if only I wasn't wearing a skirt. And also, everybody were surprised to see the event marshals suddenly dancing to the beat of a specific tune!
My first talk was "Create Your Own #beautiful story with Tricia Gosingtian for Ponds."I've always known Tricia a a photographer, a traveler, fashion icon and a blogger. I barely saw her talk in front of a crowd and that's actually what she admitted at the beginning of the talk. She wasn't used to it and I could actually feel her awkwardness. But while she was discussing her life in front of us, how she attained her current role, I can't help but listen in wonder. She really was just a simple girl who had worked hard for what she wanted. I can't even believe all the Magazine covers that she did. She never did brag about it at all. I mean, who would've known she was the photographer of the front cover of a famous local fashion magazine, right?
With Ms.Tricia Gosingtian.
If you want something really badly, you work hard for it. Do your best to attain it. That's what I learned from the talk. And I was really inspired. While I was listening , a lot of things were already running in my mind. I have a lot of things that I wanted to do and she made me believe that yes, I could do all of these things as long as I believe in myself. Strive hard, work hard, give it your best shot.
I wasn't able to attend my second talk for the day because I wasn't feeling that well and my talk was suppose to start round 7:00 PM. So my boyfriend and I decided to go home instead. But not before taking a photo of my outfit for that day.
Yes, I do admit that everything that I'm wearing from these photos are all from various thrift stores, save for the shoes and accessories. I bought my vest from an online shop and the top, skirt (which was actually an H&M skirt, very lucky find) and socks from a thrift store near my boyfriend's house. Maybe I should post about thrift stores soon.
Also, I barely wear skirts nowadays, especially bandage skirts. I've always preferred wearing shorts all the time since its easier to move around. And I like pleated skirts more too. But maybe I should try wearing other variations for a change. I need to experiment with my clothes more often, or probably whenever I'm in the mood for it.
Anyway, thanks for reading! :3
