Current mood :
Excited in a non-sexual way! Excited like a 5 year old licking dirty ice cream. That still sounded a little sexual. Anyway! Its been crazy the last 2 months. 4 weeks of Pop-up shop at the Mezza House and then Fashion Forwards' first season, i am not even gonna dwell and recall the happenings anymore. I have moved on and fully recovered. One word to sum it up : FASHGASM! I know! Its not even a word..
Moving along now!
So, i am so excited to be going back to my beloved Bahrain in less than a week's time! I am excited to see old friends, do old stuff, check out new spots, get drunk,
get laid and eat deep-fried pork and all that jazz!!!
BUT! Thats not only it!
(Those mentioned about will be part of my "side trips".)
The main reason and the highlight of my trip is for a shoot with Bahraini label Amal Al Mulla. I feel so honored to be chosen once again to do her new collection. I always love working with people and brands that i believe in and Amal Al Mulla is totally one of them.
I have no idea how the new collection will feel but i know it will be as amazing as the first one! So watch this space for probable sneak peaks or follow me on instagram - @plhongflores.
I AM SOOO EXCITED!

And it's because i wanna dress up with the rest of the Middle East!
I love fashion. I am so blessed and i feel so lucky to be part of the industry. I love my job. But the best part of it is getting to dress up for the right reasons, for the right occasions.
I am not someone who makes it a point to dress up everyday. As a matter of fact, i equally love my tshirt-blue jeans-flipflop-everyday-get-up, my suits, my button-downs, my leather shoes, heels and sneakers..
I dress up depending on my mood and depending if there is a special occasion that calls for it.
One of the reasons why i love Splash Fashion Events is because of the dress codes. I enjoy an event most when i see well-dressed and overdressed people. Its so pleasing to the eyes. Its a learning experience. Its like the Hunger Games in real life. HAHAHA..
Now Dubai has yet again given me a reason to stress on putting outfits together.
This time its not only one night but 4 days. From the 26th to the 29th of April, the first ever Fashion Forward will be launched at The Arena showcasing the best of the best in the region.
I am looking forward to attending the shows of Essa Walla, Michael Cinco, Ezra Santos, Amato by Furne One and the Grazia Emerging Talent Winner that is Tresors Sauvages.
I am so excited and so honored to be documenting the fashion diary of www.pintsizedfashionista.com. We are getting an all access pass so make sure u tune in, follow them on instagram, twitter and facebook for updates and more!
This and so much will be coming your way on the next few days..
So looking forward to FASHION FORWARD!
See you all overdressed people there!

I expected a good read after carrying a two kilogram book around the mall (while window shopping) after meeting up with my friend Anna De Leon. She decided to bring this along instead of the Tom Ford book.
AND IT DIDNT DISAPPOINT!
The book Irreverent is a 10.4 x 1.7 x 13.7 inch page turner (and yes if you are carrying it around Dubai Mall, it is a head turner as well). Its Carine's way of giving us a peak of her life in fashion before, during and after Vogue Paris. The book contain captioned scanned photos, both personal and fashion from the Vogue spreads she's done as creative director side by side Mario Testino. [Random] questions by her friends and peers like Tom Ford, Vivienne Westwood, Muiccia Prada, Stefano Pilati (to name a few); an in dept interview by Oliver Zahm were answered.
I must confess, my familiarity with Carine Roitfeld didnt equal to Anna Wintour. Not until today. What impressed me so much even before finishing the book was that, this woman is so above fashion. I think its part of being a Parisian and we all should, in my opinion, aspire for that rather than being enslaved by fashion.
SHE IS SO EFFORTLESS.
As a photographer and having been a fashion editor for two years, my favorite part of the book are the captioned photos. It describes what goes on behind a photo shoot. From the conceptualization that takes place the last minute and the panic. It brings back memories.
Her porno-chicness and gender bending editorials are so inspiring, so ground-breaking, so daring!
A whole new level of respect goes to this french woman..
