London- based store Miss Selfridge had its grand opening for its first Philippine store this past Wednesday. I, along with some other SoFA students, attended the private party for our styling class. The atmosphere was fun- and crowded- with Fashionistas/Fashionistos from left to right. The energy was that of a Forever 21 where upbeat music was played and an array of pretty clothes dressed the interior. When I say pretty, I mean incredibly pretty: sequined dresses, printed floral shorts, embroidered and detailed tops, and color block maxi dresses all in the palettes of cotton candy, pinks and neutrals, and bright, bold colors. Swoon!
With Rocky, Chaley, and Preview’s fashion editor Daryl Chang
Of course, a “what I wore” segment!
Big thanks to Chaley for taking my pictures! I really wanted to wear these “Aladdin” pants for the first time and I knew it would be on the safe side since I had to commute. Just imagine me with a purse full of accessories, powder, lipstick, a mini bottle of perfume, and a pair of heels to change into for the event. Then, while I was going home, the train broke down, my netting ripped from getting caught on someone’s shirt, I had to chase down a jeepney, and the traffic was insane. Oh, the life of a fashion commuter!
