This is a blog post I’ve been sooooo excited to share with you for a long time! That’s because for the first time ever–at 31 years old–I was finally able to attend a fashion show for grown-up (because all I’ve been attending were for kids).
I’ve actually received several invites in the past. ‘Yun lang, I was always unavailable. So when Krissy of ARC PR sent me an electronic invite and passes to attend—get this—the Forever 21 Fashion Show during the Fashion Week, boy was I in Cloud 9 because I had no other commitments on that day aside from a small task in Makati hours before the fashion show. Krissy allowed me to invite two more friends, so talagang it was fun!
Anyway, here is what this 31-year old was wearing at the Forever 21 (gaaah, I’m a decade older than Forever 21’s target clientele!!!) Fashion Show during the Philippine Fashion Week:
- blue and black block dress: Blessed Shop
- black quilted leather bag: Marc Jacobs Stam
- gold infinity bracelet: Divisoria
- leather wedge sandals: Aldo
And guys, please ask me kung nagpa-hair and make-up ba ako (kasi ang ganda ng hair ko diba?) Because I’m proud to say that I did, pero libre lang ‘yan! How and where? Well, I’ll let you in on a secret how you could get your hair and make-up done for free! Since the fashion show was done at the SMX Convention Center (sooo near SM MOA), I first went to the hair and beauty department of SM. I first went to JML. I told the SA that I bought a JML plantsa-cum-curler from them. Then she volunteered to curl my hair. O di ba? Then I went to the make-up counters, stopping at the Majolica Majorca counter. The SA again volunteered to line my upper lid, which she winged very well. She also did a bit of contouring on my face using the brand’s blusher/bronzer. Since she did very well and since I also needed one, I bought the eyeliner she used on me. So the next time you buy your make-up (kung hindi naman nagmamadali), I suggest you it when you are headed to an event. So back to the event. I arrived at SMX Convention quite early, and my friends have yet to arrive. I was beyond thrilled when Krissy gave me Forever 21 gift cards! I mean, I love Forever 21! I could spend hours at a boutique just admiring the quirky and fashionable clothes and accessories! After that, I headed in because there was a mini-Forever 21 boutique. Several celebrities were also there, shopping. I literally rubbed elbows with Troy Montero, Aubrey Miles, Bubbles Paraiso, etc. Aaaaand, may chismis ako sa inyo. But before that, take a look at this photo that I grabbed from ARC PR’s Facebook Page:
Diba wala lang naman? But my malicious friend Teta was insinuating something:
Ayiiie!!! Kahit hindi totoo, kiligin na lang din kayo para sa akin ha? Troy Montero ito guys. TROY. MON. TE. RO.
Anyway, here are what I scored from Forever 21 that evening, nung na-mesmerize sa akin si Troy Montero (AHAHAHAHAHA!!!):
They’re really gorgeous, no? I tell you, they’re even more chic-looking in person! I was even more excited when I saw Forever 21’s gorgeous models wearing “my clothes” on the runway:
And this is my lacy and bit racy (because this is best worn braless!) black dress! I’ve been thinking of wearing it as it is with no jacket and with sandals, but I am glad I could also wear with this eclectic styling!
Actually, there are sooooooo many more clothes that made me salivate that night! Here are more styles I loved:
My friends and I definitely had a great time watching the fashion show (and shopping too!)
Thanks ARC PR and Forever 21 for having these 31-year olds in your show!!! Sa uulitin!!!
Tell me what you think!
