White Out

Currently doing this post while in the car so I'm keeping this quick and short! I'm getting a little dizzy now 'cause we're taking this long and stressful road of Highway 54 slash EDSA. :p Anyway, here's what I wore to the Forever 21 VIP Opening at the SM Mall of Asia last week (blogged about it here). I'm bundled up with whites and colorful accessories for this ensemble! :)

Decided to wear my recent picks from Forever 21's collection at SM North EDSA. Sheer, shoulder cutouts and laces - who wouldn't love these details? ;)

On me: top and skirt from Forever 21 | bag courtesy of SM Accessories | Pop Culture necklace | Simone's Closet braided bracelets

SM GTW: 1st Meeting

Got a call from SM Girls Teens Wear weeks ago and they asked me if I could be part of their new campaign (Redhead Model Search) as a blogger. I felt extremely overwhelmed and honored to receive this offer. It never really crossed my mind that I'll be working with a clothing line as big as SM GTW. Thank You, God!

Last July 23 (Monday), along with 5 other chosen bloggers and SM GTW heads, we held a meeting and contract signing at the SM Offices (located at Mall of Asia).

They gave us a brief and concise background about the brand, details about the Redhead Model Search (which I posted here) and the duties that we need to fulfill in this collaboration.

Hi, Mommy Rovie! :) Thanks for bringing me home safely that night! ♥

Contract signing time! It's officiaaaal!!! :p

SM GTW heads

We all headed to SM Mall of Asia right after the contract signing for a shopping spree! Woot!

Retail therapy!! Ahhh, I love everything in the GTW section! So happy with everything that I was able to take home. ♥

With our shopping carts! SM stays true with their tag line, "We've got it all for you", because they really do! :)

Lastly, we had dinner with the SM GTW team at Burgoo. Over delish and toothsome food and drinks, all of us shared stuff about fashion, blogging, personal life and many more!

Food coma!!!! (Yes, I had to use multiple exclamation points for emphasis.)

Thank you so much to Sir Carlo, Ms. Joey and the SM GTW heads for this wonderful opportunity! I still can't believe all these! *_*

Forever 21 VIP Opening: SM Mall of Asia

Everyone's raving about the opening of Forever 21 at the SM Mall of Asia! You know that the brand's extremely close to my heart, and so when I got invited to its VIP opening last July 26 (Thursday), I immediately said yes! The store has a fashion-packed selling area with the latest trends, fixtures and creative styling - check out their new and beautifully styled mannequins plus attractive focal displays that will surely inspire shoppers and keep your imagination running as you shop! :)

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get good shots during the Forever 21 fashion show since we stayed at the cocktail area. But afterwards, we headed to the store opening and shopped like there's no tomorrow. :p Love my new purchases! Heartfelt thanks to my beb Ana and to the Forever 21 team!

Eyeing on their intimates! So pretty!

Classy pieces ♥

It was so difficult for me to choose which bag to get, so I opted to buy clothes instead. Ahhh they're so stylish!

Neon and elegant accessories
