PFW S/S 2012: The Ramp, Crossings

Whenever I need a whole new wardrobe for any events, The Ramp would always be my haven. They carry great designer clothes, sky high and fashionable shoes, plus chic bags as well! So when my blogger sister and friend Denise invited me to watch The Ramp, Crossings for fashion week, I immediately said yes! Thank you so much, sis! ☺

The Ramp, Crossings brings us a mixology of style, meeting polar opposites like pairing leather with lace and studs with sparkle. Thinking of these makes me more excited to shop from them - so much ready to break the rules!

Love the back part of this top! I seriously wanna have it!!!

Notable pieces during the show were snake-skin prints

Kids also paved their way to the runway, and they were all so fashyon and cute!! Naliligaw pa ng konti!

And now I'll show you some of my favorite pieces - clean lines, soft silhouette - all classy!

Men's turn! Draped and tailored! Love their shoes, by the way.

And finally, yellow elements! The pieces were so "me"!! I can wear these all the time!

Hope you fell in love with The Ramp's collection, too! Thank you again, Denise, for the passes!


Paint Splatter

Another simple outfit of the day post! Here's what I wore to a random and lazy day at school last week. I'm on jeans again since, for your information, we have a university dress code. Headed to the Mall of Asia afterwards to have late lunch and milk tea!

On me: paint splatter top from Bangkok | cardigan from The Landmark | Terranova jeans | Chat Chat bag | SM Department Store aviators | 35 Centimeters denim flats

I love this new pair of jeans that I got from Terranova! So glad it fits me perfectly! In case you don't know, I buy most of my tank tops, scarves and jeans there.

The paint splatters on my top just tickled my fancy so much, it made me forget to wear accessories! I adore how the print speaks for itself.

This bag looks familiar, yes? Chat Chat bag that I bought from Camille Co during the Bloggers United last summer! And speaking of which, I cannot suppress my excitement for the upcoming Bloggers United 2! It's gonna be a blast for sure! See you there, loveys!

You guys know that I love milk tea, and everyone who follows me on Twitter can attest to that! So I won't say no to anyone who pulls me to Chatime, or to....

Happy Lemon!!!! ❥ 

Had Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese with my loves ate Deanne and Kevin the next day! And the moment I'm typing here, I can't help but crave and drool over these drinks. I'm definitely coming back for you, babyyy!!

Cheers to this random post, and to everyone who loves milk tea! Let me know what's your favorite drink, maybe we have the same taste! xx

P.S. It's Philippine Fashion Week already but I haven't seen a show yet because I'm sick (boo you, bipolar weather!!!). But rest assured that I'll be there on Friday til Sunday for (hopefully) 7 shows! Approach me if you'll see me, alright?? See you there, babes! xx

Freeway x Manansala: National Collectors' Series

I've always been fascinated and in love with arts, though unfortunately I wasn't gifted with hands that could create such wonders. So when Honey Andrade asked me to be her correspondent for the Freeway x Manansala event, I immediately said yes! (From the bottom of my heart, thank you for this opportunity, Honey!! ☺ God knows how happy I am!)

So anyway, Freeway brings us another marvelous heap as fashion meets art once more for their National Artist Collectors' Series! This 6th chapter of the said series features the masterpieces of Vicente Manansala, a famous National Artist for Visual Arts.

The Freeway x Manansala event was held last Tuesday (October 18) at The Row, Glorietta 5, together with fabulous people who were (I'm sure) in awe with Freeway's new collection.

Vicente Manansala is recognized as a cubist painter and illustrator. His canvases combined the cultures of the barrio and the city together. Madonna of the Slums, Jeepneys, Kahig, Bangkusay Seascape and Pila Pila sa Bigas are just few of Manansala's most-loved pieces. He achieved several awards and a lot of establishments hold public collection of his works such as the Lopez Memorial Museum (Manila), the Honolulu Academy for Arts (Hawaii) and the Philippine Center (New York).

Fashyon people made the place jam-packed!

Hosts Tim Yap and Divine Lee (who was OMG, wearing an awesome and eye-catching Kermit Tesoro skull shoes) were both in Manansala outfits! 

An AVP was played to give a background of Manansala's life and achievements.

After the video presentation, models prepped up on the runway, showcasing the official Freeway x Manansala collection. Check these out, for you will surely want to have these pieces on your wardrobe!

Drooling over all these clothes!

The ladies who gladly shared their experiences, happy memories and secrets of Manansala:   (L-R) Ronna Manansala (Grand daughter of Vicente Manansala), Cedie Lopez Vargas (from The Lopez Museum) and Maritess Mendoza-Pineda (President of Manansala Foundation)

Took this blurry shot while listening to the stories of the special guests. All those fashyon people present during the event went gaga over Divine Lee's Kermit Tesoro skull shoes!!! I want these!! *santacanyouhearme????* ♥

Tokens of appreciation were given to these lovely people who gave their time to make this event possible! 

And of course, sharing to you guys these random photos, too!

First time to see Erika Rodica! ♥ Thank you so much for letting me grab this photo, Ava Te!! So sad we have no photo together that night!

Last but definitely not the least, a shot with the gorgeous, queen and mother beki, Divine Lee! She's one of my favorite bloggers, and I adore her for being so natural! You got me so stunned, Ms. Divine! 

Thank you for this loot and congratulations for another successful event, Freeway! I am definitely honored for this opportunity.

Here's my outfit for the Freeway ♥ Art - National Artist Collectors' Series event, held last Tuesday (October 18) at The Row, Glorietta 5! Dad took these shots before leaving for Glorietta. Yay thank you, Daddy!

On me: white romper from Details | Oxygen black coat | black studded heels from Glitterati

Decided to be on a black and white ensemble, and added this rainbow feather earring from Maris Collection so my look won't be boring. 

My love for feather accessories is really obvious in this post! This black necklace from Funky Plum is just so irresistible.
