TWEED-dle Dee

I've had this lovely tweed blazer that strongly reminds me of Chanel blazers that looks so prim and proper worn by ladies of Park Avenue in Manhattan...LOL. It took me over a year before I was able to find the perfect match for this outerwear. Glad it waited till that perfect time. Wore this at Day 1 of Philippine Fashion Week :D

FAME WHORE!!!

Backtracking a bit...wore this a couple of weeks back for THE RED PUMPS Bazaar at WTC. Wanted to wear something ultra comfortable since I will be manning our booth and be in charge of everything. Also...what a better way to market your products is you backing them 10,000,000%...as for me...doing my share by wearing my all-time fave HAVOC Monster Shoes.

DENIMology

Man...I think it has been almost a year since I wore denim pants. I have nothing against it...its just trying to wear something more breathable and less constricted. However over a friends party over the weekend, I decided to go overboard...DENIM-ON-DENIM-ON-DENIM. If you have been following me, one of my fave FASHION RULE: Go BIG or go home...or better known as "Maximalist." What a better way to wear denim back again!!!

Gliteratti

Sparkles...Glitters...whatever you may call it, but there is like a magnetic force that draws you near them...Well I do...Just like a gravitational force, I was instantly drawn to my blazer hidden amongst thousands of merchandise inside the store. I paired it with my silver accessories that emits right shimmer when lights hit it. I wore this to the last event I attended and definitely wouldn't be the last time. I am planning to revive this for the upcoming Philippine Fashion Week.

Wreaking HAVOC

What I wore to the recently concluded Pilipinas Men's Fashion Week last Sunday. Sometimes I feel like the "underdog" and have to always prove myself...honestly...this is just me being so paranoid all the times. Silver lining: it brings the BEST in me and giving my 200% in everything that I do. Not to prove myself to anyone else but proving myself to my number one competitor...ME. (Hope I'd made sense...LOL)

OPULENCE

op-u-lence
1. wealth; affluence
2. great abundance; profusion

Funny how much I changed with the course of time since I started my Shoe Business THE RED PUMPS. I would like to call it "reinvention." Very reason why I named this blog as "SHOPAHOLIC MONSTER" is that it embodies what I love to do. But now, I rarely go out to shop and learned that there is something NEW and EXCITING in making your own SHOES...CLOTHES. For the past couple of LookBook post that I did 70-80% of my outfit are our very own. I think I am able to channel my creative energy from shopping to designing/ sourcing and manufacturing our products!!!

Last Tuesday went to FLIQUE Magazine 2nd Launch Party. Click HERE for the blog post. OPULENCE was my peg, inspired by this wonderful scarf fabric I found and turning it into a wonderful scarf print trousers. As part of my reinvention, I am totally fascinated with prints and wanted to go MAJOR OVERLOAD just like I do with my accessories.

P.S. I am so IN LOVE with my HAVOC II Creepers. Exclusive only from THE RED PUMPS. You will see more outfit post with me wearing my love!!!
