Topshop || Topman Flagship Store Re-Opening

25 May 2011

I believe most of you will agree with me that “Bills Payment” mails are the most stressful. Not just the bills but also the toxic of paying it. I personally go to the bank and telco store to pay. I don’t just ask someone to do it for me, it’s the “OC” in me when it comes to numbers. One night, while checking on my billing mails I saw a not so familiar envelope. I felt so special when I opened it.

It’s an invitation for the re-opening of Topshop/Topman Flagship Store.

I tried to invite some of my friends since I am entitled to bring a +1. Only Karla was available on the day of the event. She also likes photography and I thought we can practice it there.

TOPSHOP is a British fashion retailer brand of clothing, accessories, shoes and make-up for women while TOPMAN is the fashion business counterpart of Topshop that caters men’s clothing, shoes and accessories.

Some of the photos outside the store before the event started. Since I received an invite, we can already enter the store during press event.

Good food, booze and wine and good music while shopping? It’s the best place on earth right?

The Food.

Forever 21 Philippines

11 July 2010

Originally known as Fashion 21, the first Forever 21 store was founded in Los Angeles, California. It is one of the leading RTW stores in the world. They sell clothing, beauty products and accessories both for men and women. Forever 21 became famous for their trendy style and reasonable pricing.

In 2010, Forever 21 opened it’s first flagship store in Philippines. The store is located at the 2nd level of SM Megamall. It was indeed one of the most successful brand that opened here in the Philippines. As a proof, as much as I want to check the place and clothes on it’s opening weekend, the line at the entrance is just unbelievable! So I only have this wall photo.

Fashion is something, Style is everything

07 July 2013

For those who are about to raise their eyebrows… No, I am not a stylist nor a fashion consultant. It’s just that people who know me the best trust my eye and taste in fashion, they often ask my opinion about what to wear and how to accessorize them, and I am more than happy to oblige.

What I tell them is what I’ll be imparting to you.

It all about COMFORT. You could wear the season’s best but if you’re not comfortable, they will not look good on you. All you did was buy expensive clothes. You could consult trend mags, but they should not overwhelm your style because you will end up with a disaster and be an eyesore to other people.

After we were given our clothing allowance last Friday, me and my good friend, Tina helped our colleague in choosing his clothes and accessories. Helping him was a good stress-reliever.

And then I remembered the first few people I styled, My nieces and nephew… Lol!

As you can see, I go for what’s comfortable. As Alexander McQueen would say.. “ I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.” Go for the classy look because fashion fades but style is eternal. Naks! Lakas maka-Yves Saint-Laurent.

Ciao!

Fix Styling Equation.

tumblr_m0pn8w17dk1qfdieo

February 2011, I tried having my hair styled at Tony and Jackey in Makati. The experience was great. The Korean stylists were all nice and the service was fast. It’s just that my hair really loves being styled at Bench Fix Salon. For 6 years now (except for that one T&J experience), no one touched my hair except FIX. It started before my college graduation in 2006 in their Glorietta branch. There is something in their hair styling technique that wherever branch you go you’ll have the same hair treatment.

Me and my pamangkins planned this make-over in 2012. We were all satisfied with the result of our new look. Let me share to you our styling EQUATION.

Disclaimer: This is not a separated at birth celebrity edition, so don’t mind the celebrity just focus on the hairstyle.
