See By Chloe Sandals

19/12/2013, Fashion and Style, See by Chloe, Shoes, Shopping

Are you ready for resort? I am! I really am! I think it’s funny how I used to be a huge fan of the winter season. Before moving to New York City almost two years ago, I’ve always envisioned “winter” (from my previous travels, at least) as this gorgeous, glamorous, time of the year when it’s snowing every day and all there is to do is to go around town in gorgeous furs and drink hot tea in front of the fireplace wearing layers and layers of four-ply cashmere. Little did I know it’s not really like that and I would end up miserable in my apartment FOR DAYS AT A TIME because it’s too damn cold to do anything remotely human outside. Don’t get me wrong — I’d rather be cold any time than deal with the heat. It’s no secret that I sweat like a whore in church and it’s not a good lewk. But seriously, the cold temperatures are paralyzing me. I’ve lost all willpower to haul my ass out of the couch.

Enough about the weather. I know there’s a ton of sales going on but I’m not gonna spend a single cent of my hard-earned money towards old merchandise. I did my fall/winter shopping before Thanksgiving and that was the end of my expenditures towards fall. I’m thrilled that new things are slowly trickling in at the stores, especially the resort and pre-collections. FINALLY!

I bought a pair of See by Chloe sandals on Shopbop the other day. I know, I know. Metal shoe trimmings are not going anywhere! I’m going somewhere warm next week and I can’t wait to rock these out. I think this is a terrific addition to my closet.

Currently obsessed with this gorgeous gold bracelet from jewelry designer Janis Savitt. I love the hook and latch closure and that touch of diamond. Soo effortless, so chic.

Giorgio Armani One Night Only New York City

25/10/2013, Celebrity Gossip, Current Affairs, Events, Fashion and Style, Giorgio Armani

Yesterday night belonged to Giorgio Armani. Actually, scratch that. October 24, as decreed by Mayor Bloomberg, is Giorgio Armani Day in New York City. I spent most part of my evening at his “One Night Only” event, featuring a retrospective of his Privé collections on a runway show and an exhibit called “Eccentrico“. I’ll share more photos on a separate blog post. Still gobsmacked how Mr. A’s team transformed the massive SuperPiers into a really chic venue. No detail was spared, from the carpeting to the scent wafting in the air! Yesterday night was definitely a night to remember. Bravo!

Number One

22/10/2013, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Models

Gisele. GISELE! The term “supermodel” does get thrown around loosely but IMO, Gisele Bundchen, aka “GB”, aka “Number One”, is the last supermodel in my books. I had the pleasure of working with the most beautiful woman in the world for two days last week and boy oh boy, this one is for the books.

As y’all know, I extended in Paris for a few days after fashion week. One day, I got an email from my beloved agent to go to a casting. Nine years of blogging and I’ve never gone to a casting before so naturally I was nervous. I’m no model. I didn’t know what to expect! But, like a trooper, I showed up right on the dot, answered a few questions in front of a camera and within three minutes, done and done. A week later, I got called in to take part in a two-day shoot. I was on set for sixteen hours on the first day.

Trust me, I wish I could tell you all about it. I’m bound to keep my silence until it comes out. NEXT YEAR. For now, why don’t you enjoy Gisele’s supremacy and ferociousness, courtesy of this old Vogue Italia video…

After attending Anna Wintour’s intimate cocktail at Armani Hotel’s Bamboo Bar in Milan for my beloved Lucky Magazine Editor-in-Chief Eva Chen, I rushed to the Stuart Weitzman’s new boutique (designed by Zaha Hadid) in Milan’s ultra chic Via Sant’Andrea. The iconic Kate Moss, the star of Stuart’s Fall 2013 “Made for Walking” ad campaign, was also there.

In Manila, Philippines, the Stuart Weitzman flagship store is located at SM Aura Premier.
