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:
