Mega x SM Fashion Show

Last November, I was invited by a friend to attend the first among the three series of the Mega x SM Ladies' Fashion Show, featuring their Color Blocking, Cosmic Colors and Global Nomads collections, held at Prive Luxury Club. I have lots of photos of the fashion show but decided not to post them here because I'm sure you'll find even better pictures of them on the net. So I'm posting here photos you won't find anywhere else online - snapshots of us taken during the event. Haha. :)

Little Black Dress

This is one of my outfits for our yearbook shots. We were required to wear something black for our batch picture and since I didn't have time to plan what to wear (again!), I went for this classic black dress. I bought this roughly three years ago from Topshop and it never goes out of style! And I love it even more because it's lace! 

I'm in Cebu right now to attend a wedding and I'm flying back to Manila on January 2, just in time for our first day of class on 2013. I'll be spending New Year's Eve here, my first time to spend NYE away from home (but still with family). So excited to see what's in store for me in the coming days!

Season of Opulence Fashion Show

Shangri-La Plaza proved itself once more as one of the metro’s preferred style sources as it unveiled the hottest picks of the season with Season of Opulence, its 2012 Holiday Fashion Show.

Held at the lifestyle destination’s Grand Atrium, the highly anticipated fashion event offered Manila’s most discerning style setters a coveted preview of what to expect this holiday season from select top clothing brands; while also parading the impressive diversity of Shang’s merchandise mix.

Popular high street labels Marks & Spencer, Zara, Debenhams, Topshop, Mango, and Warehouse wowed audiences with noteworthy runway revelations that showcased key trends for the celebrated fashion season.

Premium brands Gap, K & Co, Mico Boutique, Celine, Celio, Daniel Hechter, Onitsuka Tiger, Massimo Dutti, Bauhaus, Nautica, Ben Sherman, Original Penguin, and Anthem likewise reigned on the catwalk, presenting their own distinct interpretations of how to stand out in style during the holidays.

Of course, also not to miss were laudable anthologies from Rustan’s Department Store and Crossings Department Store, turning some of the season’s most wanted looks into wearable creations fit for stylish urbanites to don during the much awaited iconic series of gatherings and special affairs the most wonderful time of year often brings.

Snoe Here Comes the Sunblock SPF45

I told you before in one of my previous posts that I'll be posting reviews of some Snoe beauty products. This one in particular is my favorite- the Here Comes the Sunblock Instant White SPF 45 Sun Lotion with Singkamas. I was a bit hesitant to buy this at first because I have lots of sunblock products at home, but the ones I met at the Snoe bloggers event convinced me to buy one for myself, saying that it really is good. Unlike other sunblock formulations, this one is non-greasy. There's no need to apply powder afterwards to make your face look less oily. Also, it is very smooth and easy to apply. You only need a small amount for your whole face. One bottle will last for a few months if you use it every day on your face, and less when you use it on your arms as well. Aside from the sun protection, this product gives you a whiter complexion instantly and also has anti-aging properties. Most of the time, I use this as a substitute for BB cream because it gives the same result on my face, with the added advantage of a high SPF. And lastly, it's very affordable! 

Too good to be true? Try one now and see for yourself! :)

Snoe Bloggers Event

I was able to attend the 3rd Semi-Annual Bloggers Event of Snoe, where they showcased their past, present and future products. A week after this event, I needed to delete some photos from my memory card to make room for new ones. I deleted most of the photos from this event, knowing that I already transferred them to my laptop. Apparently, I was wrong. Now I'm left with only these photos taken during the later part of the event. 

I told my friends about Snoe, turned out that they've been using some of their products for a while now and they love it! :) For complete descriptions of their products, visit their official website here. Watch out for my reviews on Snoe products!

Wild Child

I haven't worn this jacket ever since I bought it at H&M. The heat here in the Philippines made it literally impossible for me to wear this on a regular day. So the second I knew that I'd be going to the extremely cold SMX for fashion week, I made a mental note to myself to wear the things that I've barely worn, specially those pieces intended for colder weather. At first, I wanted to pair this jacket with my leather pants but figured that I might have a hard time walking due to my leather pants being insanely tight. I settled for this skirt instead and went match-y match-y with my wedges.

They Call it Preppy

It's not everyday that you'll see me in an outfit like this. It's just not me. I was a bit shocked actually that I came up with this outfit. The whole day, I was constantly reminding myself that it's okay and that there's nothing wrong with what I was wearing. But deep inside, I was cringing with disgust and at the same time, itching to get out of these clothes. Haha. This was clearly one of my attempts in becoming more experimental with fashion. I just noticed that I'm always gearing towards the classy, neutral, and prim and proper-ish look. What do you think? Did I do okay?
