The invite from SM Kids’ Fashion indicated that moms and kids were encouraged to arrive in their best streetstyle outfit. I immediately googled what “streetstyle” meant, and this was what I got from wisegeek.com:
Street fashion is not specific to one type of dressing, but instead covers a host of different styles, all unique in the fact that they were created and styled by the young people who favor them.
In short, it was casual and ranged from gutay-gutay shorts to flouncy skirts to boyfriend jeans and many more.

Since my decision to attend was last-minute, I just raided my closet and put together something that I think gave off a casual yet still stylish vibe. Here I was together with the other streetstylista mommies and babies (sorry, no solo shot :()
And here’s a closer look at my outfit-ey details:
I was sulking that Randy was not able to come with us. He wanted to, but his driver’s license has expired and he was to apply for renewal on that same day. Although I had Kuya Dodong drive us and Yaya Isay to help me with Raviv, I was still sad because I of course preferred my husband. Plus because he was to take our photos. Teehee.
When I arrived at SM Megatrade Hall 2 (where the Toonfest launch & fashion show were happening), I was pleasantly surprised when I saw two familiar faces right away! First, my former schoolmate, Luther Abcede, was one of the official photographers covering the event! That meant I’m gonna have my hands on SLR-quality photos…yes! Second, I saw my friend and fellow blogger mom Sha!!! Both Sha and I were surprised to see each other because no one knew the other was coming. We were even happier when we saw our new mommy blogger friend Ging! Of course, it deserved a moment!
Aside from my mommy blogger friends, I also met my favorite fashionable mommy blogger, Jackie Go. I was supposed to meet Jackie last year when I was one of the chosen few who was supposed to join her on a spa date. Unfortunately, my schedule did not permit me. So when I saw her at the event I approached her and introduced myself. She remembered me and we had a short chat. It was so easy to talk to her—it’s as though it wasn’t our first meeting.
Fun and Food at Fashion Capital Stops
SM Megatrade Hall was decorated beautifully! Each station featured either a fashion capital or a kid’s favorite cartoon.
And of course my and Raviv’s new favorite, Robby Rabbit!
…and the buffet table was decorated as though we were having tea at an English country house or in a cafe in Paris…
And oh yeah, one of the event sponsors was Go Nuts Donuts! It was all Raviv wanted to eat and it wasn’t difficult to understand why!
Fab, Fashionable Kids
DJ Sam Oh hosted the event proper. She was, of course, clad in a fab streetstyle wear.
With what this event and fashion show has shown me, gone are days when cartoon characters in outfits was outdated or even baduy. Ergo it used to be that kids were not really fas-yown at all, because you cannot make them stop loving Betty Boop, Garfield, or Robby Rabbit. Cartoons and kids are a package deal. Good thing that these labels, all available in SM Department Stores, show us that kids in their beloved cartoon characters outfits can even beat us adults.
Tell me what you think!
