Plains and Prints Pre Fall Preview 2014♥

Totally cute "Afternoon tea party theme" for Plains and Prints: Pre Fall 2014 Preview at Edsa Shangrila Mall last June 19.  Unfortunately I was not able to be there on the day of the launch because I am at the office.  But during breaks I visit their Facebook and Instagram accounts for updates on what's happening.  When I saw the photos:  I told myself I really need to be there to experience it.  Was planning to go Saturday, but decided to visit Friday instead.

Few remnants of their Afternoon Tea Party decor
Well before the actual preview, I already have my top picks.  When I first saw it on their BTS photoshoot...posted on their IG: I said to myself "Well, well, I need to have that dress!"  It was from their Uptown Girl Collection.  The "Funny SL dress" one with Audrey Hepburn print.

Rhett Eala their creative director really did an amazing job on making their Pre Fall 2014 Collection, plus the styling of Liz Uy and of course Anne Curtis as their brand ambassador.  Really a Perfect partnership!

For their Pre Fall 2014 collection: Plains and prints offers four amazing sections, namely California Dreamin, Fleur De Lis, Flights of fancy and my favorite of all the Uptown Girl.

Fleur De Lis and California Dreamin' Collections

Uptowm Girl and Flights of Fancy Collection

Fleur De Lis - romantic and floral inspired, you will find shades of purple, pink, fuchsia and peach.

Flights of Fancy - features a twist on the classic button down top in vibrant colors.

California Dreamin' - collection includes dainty detailed or printed: shift dresses, waist dresses and trousers.

Uptown Girl - inspired by style icon Audrey Hepburn.  Bringing you back to the 60's era: the vibrant colors of blue, orange and yellow dominates this collection.

Yes, I may have missed the actual preview with Anne Curtis and the adorable Afternoon Tea party set up!  But I was lucky enough to get want I wanted!  I got the Audrey dress (Funny SL dress) from their Uptown Girl Collection, and 2 other skirts (Funny and Fatima skirts) from the same collection-I'm a happy girl! Which was sold out on the day of the preview.  And of course being a prestige discount cardholder I got all these at 10% off.    I want to thank the sales staff of P&P Shangrila for saving one for me!♥ (it's great to be a regular customer of the store where the preview was held!-*double wink!)


Funny SL Dress - P1,898.00
Fatima skirt P1,198.00 / Funny skirt P1,398.00

And to Plains and Prints... Congratulations!!!  Your Pre-Fall 2014 Collections are all so nice and fabulous!

Tissue paper rolls cord holder♥

If you are having problems in keeping the cords of your laptop, computer, mobile phone.  I want to share with you this easy project: cord holder that is made of tissue paper cardboard rolls.  Let's recycle and tidy up your cords with this!  

Here's what you need:

1. Tissue paper cardboard roll


 2. Pair of scissors

3. Washi or decorative tapes

 For this project I used the lavender gingham design.



All you have to do is to wrap the tissue paper roll with the washi or decorative tape starting at the tip.

 Continue wrapping the tissue roll.


Until you reach the end.


So here is your fully covered tissue paper roll.  All you have to do was to insert the electrical cord of your laptop or any other cords that you have.


Tissue paper roll cord holder
Now that your cord holder is done, you can keep it when you're not using it.  I used my old shoe box wrapped with gift wrapper in storing my electric cords.  


Hope you like this project! :)

Boheme♥

Boheme by Snow my sister♥

"ART" runs in the family... from our dad to our little boys Lance and Hans.  We are all blessed with creative eyes and hands.  (Artistic in our own way... )  Daddy is an Engineer and draws good structures, my ate is a graduate of Fine Arts from University of Santo Tomas, both my brothers and I though we did not take art courses in college are blessed with artistic hands. (we all can draw)  Well, Architecture or Interior design was actually my first choice...but ended up in taking Accounting.  I just used my creative skills as a hobby (I am more on design and styling.. not really good in anatomy).   My nephews and niece are all artistically inclined: (Ate's children: Red is taking up Animation in Iacademy and Ysl is an incoming Visual design freshman in Miriam), (Brother's children: G studies in TIP taking up Electrical Engineering and our two little boys are now showing their love in drawing and coloring).

This artwork was given to me by my sister: it was actually a long overdue gift.  She called this one "Boheme" ( as in Bohemian )... she had a couple of paintings at home... one of my favorite was her Secret Garden (I was making her "kulit" to give that one to me but her daughter wanted it) ... When I saw this painting, I felt that it was intended for me... maybe because my sister knows me that well and the painting really reflects my personality.  I love Bohemian fashion... the accessories and styling... at the same time the symbols on the painting was like Louis Vuitton's iconic logo... which really depicts my love for bags. (*wink)

So I was right!  Last Sunday when I went to their house, this came home with me! I love it!♥

Thanks Ate!♥♥♥  (wanting for more....)

Hello again, Fabulouschq designs♥

It's been a while since I designed and crafted bracelets for my online shop.  Well, the two days holiday gave me a chance to make a couple of bracelets (God I really missed doing that!).  Stretchy bracelets piled or stacked together with bangles are soo coming back... I am so excited to make new designs: my ever popular mish-mash or stack bracelet sets.  For those who does not know, just a little throwback: When I started my shop in 2011, I only sell bracelets that I personally design and make.  Popular ones were my half stretch bracelet and my bracelet stack sets.  

First two designs (2014): Filigree heart stretchy bracelet made of crystals with filigree heart charm, Beach babe stretchy bracelet made of turquoise beads and silver crystals with flipflops and star charms.  

The bracelets are sold separately but you can mix them together, here on the photo I even added my silver bangles for a more fab feel.  You can wear this with your distressed denim shorts, sleeveless top and a bomber jacket or a kimono cover up.

I love pink!  So I called this one LOVE PINK.  It's a three piece bracelet set, if you're in the mood of wearing something dainty: this bracelet is for you!  Made of crystals, glass beads and faux pearls with rose and heart locket charms.

I really missed doing what I love... now I sure back in making and creating eye catching arm candies!

I hope you will love them as much as I do!

Be FAB... Make a Statement...

Lochetta of Love #22♥

It was love at first sight when I saw this extravagant neck piece online.  I often to do this to search for new and exciting accessories.  This necklace caught my attention right away. It was designed by Diana Broussard.  Broussard was the former designer of Gucci and now she has her own store in New York City.

This handmade necklace is called Lochetta of Love #22: made of Plexiglass chain accentuated by a padlock that opens. (Made in Italy)  Size: Approx. 10 inches including 2.5" lock.
It is available in various colors, but unfortunately Diana Broussard's accessories are high-end and does not come cheap.  This fabulous necklace costs $375.00.

This necklace is very versatile you can wear this on any outfit! From sundresses, tube top to sweaters. :)  This would really form part of my wishlist! (*wink)

Up close with Ms. Pam Quinones♥

For somebody who loves fashion styling it is really a great opportunity to meet one of our country's top fashion stylist!  Was lucky to have accompanied my nephew Lance on his Gingersnaps photo shoot last Saturday.  After meeting up with Ms. Liz Uy when she had her book launch in Podium, I was able to meet and have a little conversation with Ms. Pam Quinones. (Pam also worked with my cousin Owen Santos in Marie Claire magazine)

Truly one of my memorable experience... I was able to see how a stylist works on every photo shoot. (How she and Mark Nicdao work together to come up with  outstanding fashion photos, yes I also experienced Mark Nicdao, unfortunately I was not able to have a photo with, maybe next time.) It's been a dream to be working on the fashion world... to meet with the people I truly admire with regards to fashion and styling. 



Notes: Pam Quinones is one of the well-known fashion stylist in the Philippines.  Styled the following stars: Anne Curtis (especially on her recent concert: Annekapal), Sarah Geronimo, Judy Ann Santos, Charlene Gonzales and etc.
