Everything I’m wearing here was a case of love at first sight, especially the pink blazer. I’ve been looking for something like it for so long, but the items I found were either great but grossly overpriced, or inexpensive but poorly made. I saw the blazer while personal-shopping for someone else, and I just knew I had to have it!

image

What do you think of this look? 

image

Rajo looking youthful as ever. We were beyond excited when he saw us and exclaimed, “Hey, you guys! I read your blog. I love your style. You kids keep me young!” Recalling that moment never fails to make us smile.

image

He showed us his favorite pieces in his collection.

image

image

We thought there were only gonna be the usuals, like skinny and straight-cut. But wait, there’s more! Hahaha. You’ll have to visit your nearest Bench store to check out which designs suit you best.

image

You also might want to test his Uno and Dos eau de toilet collection.

image

Kashieca was right across Bench, and the scene was pretty much the same as soon as JC Buendia arrived.

image

His collection consists of easy-breezy pieces, versatile enough to be worn to school, the office, a date, parties, and wherever-have-you.

image

He also has these cute baby tees!

image

image

We asked where he got his inspiration for the whimsical pieces, and JC told us the story of how his friends all know him to be a hopeless romantic. “I chose the frog as my emblem for this collection because I really like the frog prince. I like fairy tales.”

image

On the mannequin is JC’s brilliant five-way dress/pants/skirt/top/cover-up. Go ahead, drop by a Kashieca store, ask the saleslady to give you the how-to, and see if you won’t find it awesome.

Thanks to Lawrence Cua of Bench and Kashieca for inviting us.

Fun and Fearless at 15

image

Cosmopolitan Philippines celebrated their 15th anniversary Thursday night with a fabulous sexy-formal bash at the NBC Tent. The venue was filled to the rafters with the most gorgeous faces, the hottest bodies, and the most well-respected names in the fashion and local entertainment industry. It was hard not to feel out-of-place—good thing we also bumped into friends and familiar faces! In a nice coincidence, most of those you’ll see here are people we met before they started out with their now-successful careers, either styling, featuring, interviewing or doing shoots with them. We’re pleasantly surprised that they still remembered us after many years, and that they remain humble amid the successes. Below, snapshots from that starry, starry night.

Oh, and speaking of shopping, tomorrow is the much-awaited Bloggers United Bazaar and we’ve got a booth. Details here. We’ll be selling not just accessories, but some of the clothes you see us wearing in our previous posts. See you there!
