I hosted a seminar last Saturday, October 13, 2012, for the NSTP Students of STI College Shaw. I’m used to hosting events especially in our church but the last time I did it was more than three years ago before I gave birth. Sure, I would emcee for small parties (usually baby showers) but nothing as big as last week’s. We were expecting 350 students but only about a hundred came because of some miscommunication. Still, the group behind it was more than happy to accommodate the first year college students of STI.

I will be posting more about the IMPACT Seminar soon. This one is really an outfit post. Hihi.

The Eat Cake for Breakfast was originally priced at $499 but you know how Kate Spade quickly slashes off prices. This was another eBay find. I got this brand new for only $103. I’ve been looking for this canvas tote since January but I could only find an expensive listing so when I saw one up for auction at eBay.ph, I grabbed the opportunity to bid. Luckily, I won. (I always do when I bid! Haha!)

I usually have no problem deciding on what to wear but the event was more of casual. It was a seminar for students so it’s expected that the organizers dress respectfully. I tried to be as casual and as young looking as possible.  Hoping this was “respectable” enough. What do you think? 😀

  1. I think you dressed well for that occasion. What to wear when hosting an event would primarily depend on your audience and the the kind of event. I used to over-think on what to wear before when I get invitations to speak on different fora.

    I love those shoes, by the way. I really can’t manage to wear light-colored shoes because of my dark complexion.
