Delaying Tactics

I've been wanting these Valentino Studded Flats since October.

And it seems no one is stopping me from getting them (I'm talking about you, my dear Tweethearts!)

But sigh, I dunno. I'm kind of in saving mode these days, and I haven't shopped for shoes for months now. It's kind of hard to break a fast when I've been so good, I'm pretty sure I'm setting a record. My personal best perhaps, considering that these shoes are really scrumptious! Well, I know for a fact that if it's meant to be, then it's meant to be. So yeah, that settles it. For now, I shall enjoy you from afar.

And to Kate who asked about sizing, these run true to size! I'm usually a US 6 and I tried on the 36 and it was perfy! Terribly perfy! And very very comfy! Hmmm, maybe I'll visit the Valentino store in ION Orchard tomorrow! Just to say hello to pretty shoes!

Breaking News!

Who: H&M
Where: Orchard Building on Orchard Road, with a sales area of 3,000 square meters
When: Fall 2011

"We look forward to opening our first store in South East Asia. There is great potential for expansion in this highly populated and fashion conscious region, and Orchard Road in Singapore is the perfect first step for this", says Karl-Johan Persson, CEO at H&M.

Remember this?

If you noticed, I asked about Singapore too and they didn't answer! So it was true! Their silence meant consent!

Now that they've taken the first step into South East Asia, could Manila be the second step?! It better be, please!

Cubao Expo 2010

In case you missed the last 2 Cubao Expo Bazaars, there's still another one scheduled for December 4!

Since 2007, Cubao Expo has become the place where the unexpected pleasant find is the norm. In the 2010 1-DAY HOLIDAY TWIST BAZAAR, there are 32 different sellers to satisfy your gift-giving needs.

You might also want to check out the  "LATAGAN SA CUBAO X!” section, where a space in Cubao Expo (the former Heritage Art & Antique Gallery) has been set aside for sellers of any goods that are vintage, handmade and art-inspired, “mat/floor-selling style”.

Entrance to the bazaar is free, and there is ample parking space in the paid parking lot to right of Cubao Expo, as well as in front of the Cubao Expo compound.

Our Jeffrey Campbell Wishlist + A Home "Wrecker"

Ok Honeyz. I've seen requests for more Foxy Woods in Leopard, Litas, Charlis, Moulin (Melvel, this is yours), Mariel and Tube 2 (noted, Denise!). Saw excshoesme's plea to bring in size 5  too.

Well, guess what dearies, we're in major luck! Rissa, our most-loved SM Fashion Forum buyer, has taken notice! She is going to be reading this Jeffrey Campbell wish list we are  lovingly preparing for her and she's taking notes! So, please leave a comment and tell her exactly what you want, in this format please.

Style: i.e. Lita
Color: Blue
Size: 6

And if you want to be absolutely fabulously sure that that shoe you want will be yours, fo sho, leave your email address so you can reserve the shoe once it makes the final cut! Think of it as a pre-order!

Here's a preliminary listing of the shoes being considered for the next shipment...

And if you're eyeing a Jeffrey Campbell style that isn't here, or you want to re-order a style that has sold-out (like the Snick, Tick and Foxy Woods in Leopard), take heart! Just let us know which shoe you want and if we see enough requests for that, then it's coming!

To widen your Jeffrey Campbell horizons, check out Solestruck.com for a great selection of JCs for reference! Take for instance, you might want to take my suggestion and go for this "Wrecker" that looks so badass, I can almost hear our significant others (well, those who lean towards the classics anyway) sputtering in disbelief at us  ("Ha! Gusto mo yan?"! to which we answer, "Oo, why not!") hahaha!

Rissa is very much open to your suggestions. Here's your chance to play assistant buyer. Your wish, is our command!

Well-endowed All Over? Check Out Erzullie!

Great news for my plus sized style sisters! Now you've got a go-to place for  trendy styles you've only dreamed of wearing. Last November 6, plus size stylists and designers Bernalyn Cuevas and Raisa De Guzman launched Erzullie Plus Size Fashion at the Global Pinoy Bazaar, Rockwell Tent, Makati City.

They named their fashion line after the Voodoo Goddess of Love, which both designers believe is what plus size women should have more of for themselves.

Bernalyn and Raisa's designs  are inspired by regular size clothes, which are typically not available for the plus size category. Expect slashed leggings, shimmery jackets, skirts, jumpsuits, dresses, tops and bottoms that are shaped and formed specifically for the plus size body.

Because who says you've got to dress for your body type when you're confident and cool enough to wear what you please! Visit Erzullie in BACKSTAGE, Serendra. They carry sizes ranging from Large to 4Large.

You may also buy their pieces online via http://erzullie.multiply.com.

Mother & Daughter

Judging from the photo above taken by my sister Dianne, Berry and I have a couple of years to go to practice for shots ala Sasha Pivovarova in the November 2010 issue of French Vogue:

I'm loving these pegs! I want ala-editorial shots like these too! Dada, as our resident family photographer you must study the angling and lighting and practice na! Meanwhile, I shall take care of styling and make-up. I have several outfit matches in mind na! O diba!

The $100 Shopbop Gift Card Goes to...

GJANECO who wanted Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses!

Out of 60 comments/entries (1 to 60) on my giveaway post, and 19 tweets (entries 61 to 79), the 12th comment won!  This is truly random, but how cool is it that my birthday falls on the 12th of November, and the 12th entry won?

Gladys, have fun choosing which DVF dress you want! You'd have to cover the balance, but $100 gift card is still $100 off the sticker price! ;)
