so chic-a celestina

last sunday we were at mass admiring the dress of this woman sitting a few pews in front of us. it was a simple, putty-colored sack dress with puffy sleeves that had interesting origami folds. as we left the church, we realized it was tina maristela-ocampo! the woman is effortlessly chic. so when we got a text inviting us to the celestina private, by-invitation-only sale, we thought, we want a piece of that! so this morning we dropped by the forbes park home of tina and her hubby ricco to check out some of the goods, hoping that if we buy a celestina, some of her impeccable style might rub off on us. well, if we could afford anything! everything was marked down 50% (wow, pretty generous), but even with that huge discount, everything was still over a thousand dollars! yes, US dollars! didn’t seem to faze the couple of magazine editors and zobel wives who were jotting down their orders. we all know the minaudières the celestina brand is famous for (you know, those little clutches carried by hollywood celebs on the red carpet), but we were jonesing for everything else: chunky jewelry, shagreen-covered sunglasses, croc purses, mmmm… we wish we could afford these (actually, we can but that would mean not paying rent for like a year):


here are some things that cost less than US$500…

well, it’s a three-day sale, so we have till thursday to decide…
