A break from being a "Coffee Shop Girl"

Friday, September 03, 2010

I was invited by Pax to go with her and Mitch and Melai on an event of The Prive Fashion Series, featuring Glitterati, last September 1 in Members Only. Although I am still your dress-down-hippie, I was excited to enjoy a night of all-glam: To get a sneak peek of the brand's new collection, dress up for a change, and meet fellow bloggers who are already big when it comes to Fashion Blogging! :)

Glitterati's New Collection

As an online shop owner myself, I am happy when a local business thrives. Glitterati founders Nina Estacio and JL Ladrido took Glitterati a (big) step further since its birth as an online shop in 2008 by opening their own physical store in Bel-Air 3 Makati, and kicking off with their new Luxe Collection. 

The event had a mini-fashion show featuring the 14 muses of the brand's new LUXE line. The roster includes Dominique TiuTricia Gosingtian, Maggie Wilson, Sandra Seifert, Patricia Prieto, and my online shop suki Kookie Buhain and Lissa Kahayon

Dress Up

Although I seldom go clubbing (unless when invited on events such as this!), I do love to dress up from time to time! It's a nice change on my usual ratty attire when meeting up buyers and suppliers around Metro Manila. I thought of going all-black to be safe, and then accessorized with studs and hot pink: In true Glitterati fashion. ;)

Make-up/Outfit photos for last September 1:

Met-up with Tamems and went to Kelly's clinic in Makati. Had dinner first in Cafe Med Greenbelt, and then she did my make up. :) 

Before and After. Haha! Can you see the diff? :P

From peeping denim shorts and unfolded sleeves to a more put-together outfit with the right tweaking and accessories. :)

Ready to go! Hope I looked fine! ;)
Thanks Kelly and Me-an for the ride!

With Pax, Kookie, and hippie-standout Bestie

In the middle of partying and socializing, I told Mitch and Ava that I'm a "Coffee Shop Girl" and not used to clubbing. But, in fairness, I did enjoyed a night of sight-seeing fashionistas, pretty faces, and meeting the fab people I look up to in the WWW, in a grand event that was made by and only for the Glitterati. :) 

Special thanks to Pax and Kookie for some of the pictures.
