it appears that october has become more hectic than september, even if september had five fridays. i really don't know why that is. must be all these events happening one after the other! just last week, there were three dressy events three nights in a row! it can get tiring to get all dressed up and have your hair and makeup done and wear heels for hours! i don't know how people like tessa valdes do it all the time!
oct 14/fri was the louis vuitton, greenbelt 4 re-opening party. i wore a loaned puey quiñones skirt and my own tank top. at naka-lumang LV bag talaga haha...
oct 15/sat was the wedding of rissa mananquil and paolo trillo at the peninsula manila. i wore a top-and-skirt ensemble designed for me by sesa, a new label by young designer kika serrano. (notice i didn't change my bag anymore. tamad na.)
oct 16/sun was the red cross charity ball at makati shangri-la. i was supposed to wear another puey quiñones, pero, sis, di ko keri yung mga malaking drape-drape ng gown! parang mga mala-marina benipayo lang ang pwede mag-suot. so i pulled out an old BCBG max azria silk taffeta top and a vintage christian lacroix silk/velvet patchwork skirt (vintage na kasi i've had it since the early 90s—and it still fits!), and added a rope of faux pearls. this outfit must have been lucky because i won in the raffle: two tickets to see mamma mia! being staged at the CCP starting in january 2012!
then on oct 18/tue was the formal re-launch of rhett eala's old rustan's label due, now called due/collezione, held at the peninsula manila (a separate post on this). rhett sent me something to wear: a jersey dress with an attached poncho, which can be worn several ways. i chose the no-brainer way to wear it and just added leggings and heels. (and a pout to go with my look ;-)
bukas, ang dami na namang event. at least hindi formal. next week, formal ulit for the metrowear icons show featuring oliver tolentino. what to wear, what to wear??
