_FADAL Events: Launch Party

March 1st 2012, FADAL held a special event at Prive BGC together with their friends, followers and fashionistas-in-the-metro to launch their much anticipated plans for 2012. Last December at their Christmas Soiree party they have shared with us some exciting plans they are coming up for 2012 and this event was the beginning of what I can say to be a very successful and wonderful year for FADAL.
What I wore to the event. I coined this ensemble "Gothika" as for obvious reasons. :D Layering sheer and matte black fabrics. There was something relaxed with this outfit when I got to wear this during dress rehearsal. Normally I wouldn't shy away from very bright colors (i.e. Karma Kameleon) but I will not say NO to black as well. :D Also BLACK was the color of the night and you will see with the photos below.
Black Bowler Hat: Topman
Sheer Top: Vintage
Black Polo: Black Monkey
Sleeveless Blazer: Crazy Angel
Pants: TPE
Shoes: FnH
Spike Rings: Oxygen
Spike Hand Bag: DIY

The Hand Bag that I customized with Studs. I so LOVE it, just a little bit difficult to carry due to the studs. :D
"Olsen Twins" Yen of StyleYendustry and yours truly of Shopaholic Monster. :D
Open Bar!!! My fave :D At the end of the night I was a little bit drunk with these bad boys. Vodka Sprite and Rum Cola. It was so delicious that you can't taste the alcohol content till it kicks in. :D
FADAL's Cherry Veric and the very pretty and sweet Janeth Tia (MUA)

This would be the first time I would be doing this, showing shoes that caught my attention during the party.

Prive is walking distance from my previous office and after the party I knew I have to stop by and say hello to the people I miss the most. Here we have Myi, a good friend and my boss. :D It was nice seeing everyone there. I truly miss you guys. Hope to see you soon.
It was such a perfect evening...I didn't only get to be a witness of the plans of my friends in FADAL for 2012 but I was able to catch up with people that I look up to. Let me take this opportunity to say "THANK YOU" to everyone in FADAL especially Lev who was been so gracious and supportive of my upcoming business. I am looking forward to be working with you guys in the future. Zanne for being so kind and hospitable. Everyone else, it was such a pleasure to have a wonderful and intellectual conversation with you guys. I am learning so much from your experience.

I will see you guys really soon.

Ciao and Kisses!!!
