Rock 'n Roll Christmas

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Happy Halloween, guys! I know ang KJ, but I am just lying here in my comfy bed (not in a costume, but in my pambahay pa, mind you, lol) after the family had a heavy dinner in ATC--coz halloween night for the Crazy Gonzales is also Mom's birthday! 

Naalala ko when I was kid, we used to not really celebrate mom's birthday, but go to my tita's house in Fort with my cousins, so we kids can all Trick or Treat around the village. Tapos hindi lang Trick or Treat! ang sinisigaw namin, isang napakahabang chant na "Trick or treat, money or sweet, give us something good to eat!" Lol, ay memorize ko pa talaga!

Tapos at the end of the day, we will all go back to my tita's house, mag tatakutan, manunuod ng Magandang Gabi Bayan, at mag nanakawan ng candies sa bags ng isa't isa, hahaha! I miss those days! Si Ate nanunuod nalang now ng Insidious, pero tinatamad na ako maki-uso, haha! Next year nalang siguro!

Anyway, on to the outfitey from few days ago!

Slowly turning into a jeans-lady, haha! Ang comfy lang e, plus safe for late-night commutes. :p

Forest Green Blazer - Forever 21
Printed Shirt - Giordano
Jeans - Her Bench
Shoes - Parisian x Rajo
Bag - Mango
Necklace and Bracelets - SM Accessories
Watch - Aldo
Thank you Arnie for the photos, and Paul for the camera!

Feel ko jinujudge na ako nila ate sa pag pose and picture in public, lol:

I am in love with green right now! :) Green Christmas ako ngayon, palagi nalang red hehe. I love its jewel tone version... Lakas maka class! :) Also, ang cute din this layered chains necklace by SM Accessories na may safety pin accents pa. Lakas maka edgy pa-rockstar ng black, dagdagan pa ng mix of gold accessories.

I also wore my PinkBox Hair Donut for a thicker (and cuter!) bun! It's super easy to use, nadadalas na akong naka "pusod" for the past days.

This Salute the Ocean black printed shirt from Giordano (P899) is one of the brand's efforts to help clean up the oceans. For every shirt sold, a portion will be donated to the UP Marine Biological Society! Cool noh!

Of course, still wearing my favorite heels right now from Rajo x Parisian:

Speaking of a Rock 'n Roll Christmas, check out my favorite bands' renditions of all-time favorite Christmas songs:

Jimmy Eat World's Last Christmas

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart,
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Now I've found the real love, now I found
You'll never fool me again!

And My Chemical Romance's All I Want for Christmas:
Cause I just want you here tonight,
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Oh baby all I want for Christmas is you!

Cool, noh! Haha! Anong favorite niyo, or baka meron din kayong masusuggest! ;)
Enjoy your breaks, guys. Get that rest you deserve! Mwah!

EASTPAK x Kris Van Assche FW12

Habang tumatagal kayong nagbabasa ng blog ko, I am sure alamnaalam nyo na ang pagka Stage Friend/Sister/Daughter/Whatever ko! :p So when I got an invitation from my sister's friend Clang of Primer, I can't say no! Parang kapatid ko na kasi basta kaibigan ng kapatid ko! Naku alam niyo na ang weakness ko, basta when it comes to my close ties, support lang ako! ;p 

Anyway, a photo from Eastpak Philippines:

The intimate casual get-together was held in the cool Bratpack store in Greenbelt 5. Went there with my blogger friends to check out the Eastpak's lastest collaboration.

Eastpak, well-known urban-style bag brand in the Philippines, presents its third collaboration with Kris Van Assche, a fashion designer hailing from Belgium. Van Assche, known in the Paris fashion scene for his numerous shows, is also renowned for his works in installation art, costume design used in famous dance companies, and international advertising campaign. Elected artistic director of Dior Homme in 2007, Van Assche matches his design expertise to the ingenuity of Eastpak bags.

The collab with Van Assche remains true to the urban lifestyle cultivated by Eastpak. Backpacks have become the default selection for Eastpak, but Van Assche for the first time, incorporates travel gear to expand the brand’s selection. The travel gear all come with a rigid shell which allows the user to wear it easily on the shoulder. The bags may cost a fortune, but guaranteed namang remarkable with its strong and durable design, while maintaining a very luxurious look:

I super love this big black leather handbag:

In addition to travel pieces, the Van Assche line also includes backpacks, shopping totes, and messenger bags fit for the discerning individual. Ideal for the local scene, those who possess street smarts will definitely identify with the line’s pieces:

Other Eastpak bags available exclusively available at Bratpack Greenbelt 5, Robinson’s Ermita and Alabang Town Center:

This cute camera-printed backpack from Eastpak caught everyone's attention!
Thinking of getting one para may sub ang rainbow Jansport ko pag overnights and out-of-towns:

Bubblegum! :)

Since andun nadin, checked out the other Bratpack brands, and saw these Monroe-printed Incase:

Cool lang ng visual merchandising in Bratpack stores noh?

Founded in 1997, Incase is a California-based bag and case brand that creates and delivers innovative, performance-based products with clean, contemporary design for the technology, music and street culture communities. In short, its the bag for the techies! 

The brand is committed to protecting the technology that enriches your life. They create products that reflect the brand's passion for design, innovation and personal expression.

Then, on to The Time Wear Fashion Show 2012! I enjoyed checking out hindi lang yung new watches (bilang ako'y hindi nakakalabas without a watch!)... But also the clothes! 

I like the neutral tone dress with the silver watch:

I'm always attracted to red accessories:

I want this white blazer, looks great with the large face watch:

I think I'll consider wearing colored pants if they're in this tone:

Very Aisa Ipac styling! I'd love this look for the holidays! 

Wearable look for Christmas dinner dates, kung may ka-date lang, haha:

Another "pang-date" look, New Year's Eve naman, hehe:

The pants again. Bet the big black watch, too:

Something I'll wear myself! I consider myself bottom heavy, so idaan sa mga long coats:

In love with forest green color now:

This model looks like Drew Barrymore, noh?

Love the layering, and also the oversized watch:

And then... On to the blogger ambassadors! First on stage: my dear friend Vern Enciso!

Ang pro lang ni Vern! Super cute, love how she walked the runway, and I also love her clothes!

Sigaw kami ng sigaw niyan ng "Go Vern!" Hahaha!

O lahat ng angle, pinicturean ko na Vern a, haha! Pati likod! ;p

I think natawa na si gurl sa ingay namin nila Pax and other bloggers sa audience, hehehe:

Next blogger on stage is the pretty Patricia Prieto!

I super love the styling, I'll even wear this look myself! Longer skirt nga lang siguro dahil conservative me, hehe...

Like Vern, Patricia is such a pro! She strutted the catwalk with ease:
