Holiday Shoot: Sweater Weather Fashion Inspirations

Finally, here is a full feature of my recent collaboration shoot with my styling team – The Stylists Crew Ph.

We’ve been together for months now and we’ve done several shoots – from Palace Pool Club to Kakahuyan (La Mesa Eco Park edition) but this one is quite different because first, this is a themed shoot (Holiday ‘Sweater Weather’) and second, this was done in a studio (Thank you Zoomburst!)

It is also our first time to work with Wilmark Jolindon, our SOFA classmate who is one great photographer and Hair and Makeup Artist, JR Constantino.


I’m sure you all know that layering is the ‘in’ thing this season so we did our best to keep up with this trend. We decided to make use of the available resources which include clothes from our past shoots plus some good “London” finds.

PS. London is our term for thrift shops or “ukay-ukay” stores. My first Vlog will be all about our London trip so stay tuned!


White turtle neck layered with an oversized sweater. Added a faux fur accent courtesy of The Fur Factory.

PS. I just love those braids!





Jean Touitou once said that it is best to wear socks with sandals so yes, we did that! Combined several pieces to nail this look – white turtle neck top, knitted sweater vest and a Michael Kors inspired plaid pants.

Ring from Forever 21.




Here’s a little sexy layout for that rebel chic look. We see that oversized clothing has kept its position among the best fashion trends for many seasons and so we decided to use it here (oh but we left a space for some skin!)

Topped it with a loud neck piece and gold bangle plus a dainty pair of black boots of course – always my fave.



Knits overload with this gray jumper from Shy Shop Fash and Pink sweater from Forever 21. Topped it with a black coat and leather gloves from the latest #KenzoxHM collection. Oh, that Jimmy Choo (silver) stilletos are from London. 





One of my best London picks so far. This neoprene sweater just nailed it. Partnered it with a gray skirt plus high socks and rubber boots from H&M. Finished the look with some messy curls and a pair of giant loop earrings from #HMxKenzo.



We’re supposed to have more layouts but we just ran out of time. Again, I wanna thank the people behind this great collaboration.

    Hey, couple of things came to my mind while looking at the photos. 1. The lighting is a little too high, or the foundation maybe add a tad bit more? That is so that on one or two shots, hindi glowing ang cheek mo? 2. Shucks! It must have been HOT in the studio. LOL.

    Having said all the above, enjoy ko na lang ang posings mo and the photos. NICE! Shaira. Keep it up.

    I am so in love with all of your outfits here especially the New Yorker! Yes, layering is the thing and I noticed it when I went to Japan, the Japanese love it. I am not big on layering right now but I might just do it especially now that it’s getting cold.
