The 2011 Loyola Schools Awards for the Arts awardees!
I’m thrilled to say that Reese & Vica has been awarded an LSAA plaque of recognition for our accomplishment in music this 2011 awarding :)
SO WHAT IS LSAA ANYWAY? Each year, the LSAA awards senior students of the Loyola Schools who have done outstanding work in the arts. In the past years, it has successfully given recognition to talented and outstanding student-artists who have eventually led successful careers in the fields of film, theatre, creative writing, among many others. (copy pasted from the Ateneo website)
The awarding ceremony was quite fancy schmancy and srzbz, and it required the awardees to wear Filipiniana – and searching for one was an endeavor I wanted to take quite seriously.
Initially, I searched for old clothes in the house, and I settled on this exquisite beaded dress that my Mom wore once upon a daydream – only it was a tad too big on me. I planned on having it altered, but my Mom, ever so eager to help me out, started asking her friends if they have anything I could borrow.
Filipiniana by Tesoro.
I was supposed to wear the panuelo (the one wrapped around my waist) on my shoulders but it kept falling every time I moved so nevermind that idea. Do you love the gold embroidered cobwebb-y details of the dress? I do.
