10 Things You Didn't Know About Me

July 23, 22:33...just a couple of hours and it's almost my Birthday. Just wanted to do this before I go to sleep and turn another year older (..hoping to be wiser as well). Just to shake things up differently I will be sharing 10 (silly-little) things that you didn't know about me.

1.) #1 SEX AND THE CITY FAN. Ask me anything about the series or the movie and I can give you a straight "A" answers. I LOVE YOU SJP!!!

2.) SPICE GIRLS rule the world!!! I was called Baby Spice (Emma Bunton...my fave) during my college years.

3.) SHOES are my ultimate Fetish. I have more than 70 pairs of shoes (...which I may need to relieve off my closet soon)

4.) SWEET TOOTH, I love anything sweet. From cakes, pastries, rice cakes, chocolate bars especially the local ones (sold in our local sari-sari store) and candies!!!

5.) Didn't study Fashion. I graduated as an Interior Designer and worked freelance.

6.) Worked in BPO for 7-8 years with an impressive career and decided to gamble everything as a Shoe Designer :D

7.) Super OC when it comes to order, time management, cleanliness etc. :D

8.) I have a baby Chihuahua and her name is Milan. I love her so much. (For those who have seen her..you'll understand why.)

9.) I love to travel around the world!!!

10.) I am IN LOVE for almost 4 years now!!!

...just sharing!!!

P.S. maybe I would like to add point # 11.) I would DIE for my Shoe Business!!! :D

Thank you for taking time to read this. :D

Party Crashers!!!

Hi everyone!!! Sorry I am not able to update my blog as much as I wanted to do. Most of my days...and nights are spent working. Hehehe. I really have no time to go out and have fun...that is why when good friend JC Alomajan of Migotilyo invited us out to celebrate a friend's Birthday party at Palladium, we said "YES!!!" LOL

Talk about GATE CRASHING!!! I don't know the celebrant personally but I knew of her + I thought this would be a perfect night just to relax, unwind with good friends and MARKET THE BUSINESS (see even parties like this, I bring my work with me)

I really had fun.

P.S. I failed (or I was too lazy) to bring my DLSR so I just grabbed photos everywhere online. Ahehe.
JC, Yen and Me. Theme of the night/ party was color blocking. It would be rude not to follow. I love my colors
RED + BLUE + YELLOW
when the open bar ended, we still haven't had enough...so still bought couple of cocktails
With Lev...It was so wonderful to finally have seen him. Had a wonderful conversation with him (as always) and got wonderful tips with business!!!
Fashion Show
Till my next post guys!!! Will work even harder for guys!!! :D
 
 

Spring/Summer 2013
Inspirations

Yey, finally had a little bit of free time and was able to scan photos of the Fashion Weeks for Spring/ Summer 2013. I am super impressed with the menswear since I was able to find collection that really speaks to my dressing aesthetic. Below are some of the collection I really liked and will try to emulate and be my Look Inspiration on our upcoming Philippine Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2013.
Picture
MUGLER
I love the structure, clean lines, sleekness and geometric cut-outs of their collection. I am really turned on by their collection's aesthetic. Really love them, also their mandals...delicious...I'm getting inspired :D
Picture
GAULTIER
Funny, even before I saw their collection I had this brilliant idea and was inspired by the "prisoner look" with all stripes from top-to-bottom. Definitely will be doing this.
Picture
LANVIN
Ooooh Yesss!!! Lanvin...oh so love the jumpsuits in varying lengths. Plus the high waisted trouser + leatherette combo..OMG :D
Picture
GIVENCHY
Just like Mugler, I fell in love with the use of clean lines, cuts, use of contemporary silhouettes. The "saintly" prints that they have use is truly divine. :D

I would definitely scan more photos for inspirations. :D
