RM: We are self confess hoarders. Yes, hoarders! Whenever we see a something that we will wear on the future, we will buy it. Like this dress, when Plains & Prints launches the “Heart of Fashion“ Capsule Collection last October 2016, we fell in love with this dress.
ROCHELLE: I absolutely love this Randy Ortiz dress. It’s really our style because of the new take on the classic Little Black Dress (LBD). The dress is an open-back halter dress with a white tie around vest. It’s giving me that classic sophisticated vibe.
RM: What I also love with the dress is that you can wear it again with the white vest then you can pair the white vest in other pieces in our closet. It’s really worth buying and a portion of the proceeds will go to a program of the ICanServe Foundation called Ating Dibdibin to provide community breast exams and support those diagnosed with breast cancer.
ROCHELLE: As soon as my brother texted me about this, I rush into the nearest Plains & Print store and swipe my debit card to purchase the dress. I haven’t think twice, every peso is worth it.
RM: We always hoard. Sometimes when we purchase an item, it takes months until we wear it and we always wait for the right time to wear it. But we hoard for a reason. Rochelle has something to confess.
ROCHELLE: Okay, here’s our secret, we usually buy fall items when it’s summer season because it’s on sale and likewise when on other seasons. It’s much affordable. (HAHAHA) We use to shop every time so we created our own strategy when it comes to shopping. Try it and you can definitely save more.

RM: As for her makeup and hair, Brigitte Diaz does it. We decided to go with the current classic when it comes to makeup and hair trend.
ROCHELLE: We opted for a barely there makeup with some highlights, a smokey eyes and finishing it with a glossy nude lipstick and for my hair, a messy waves with a braided half bun.

RM: For this look, I’m very inspired by Balmain’s strong and sexy aesthetic. This gold and black ensemble just gives a young lady the power and confidence. I think this outfit just gave her that young fierce lady look we are really looking for since she’s turning into legal age.
ROCHELLE: I think this look is just perfect because I’m turning to a young lady already and needed that kind of attitude for a new chapter of my life. The military jacket with gold embroidery and with the wide leg pants with gold and black lines is just a perfect mixture.
RM: This will be the last look from Rochelle’s pre-debut shoot. I remember from collecting all the pieces, looking for style inspiration and from pre-styling her, it was an experience I’ll never forget. I’m kinda emotional about this but we are looking forward on showing you what our next looks will be.
ROCHELLE: Me too and excited to share to you guys what will be my next outfit is which is always curated by my brother. Hope you like all the 5 looks we shared from my Sex and the City/New York Theme Pre-Debut Shoot which is shot by Nicolas Photography/Videography and my hair and makeup by Brigitte Diaz. We also bought a Fujifilm X-T10 with XF18-55mm Kit Lens so we can shoot my OOTDs like a pro so be sure to check out my our next look.
