Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Preppy-chic finds at Regatta

Sooo, how was your vacation? Mine dragged as I didn't go out of town or even to the mall. I spent my long weekend watching TV shows, reading books, and playing a new game (Disgaea 4!). Speaking of books, if you like Cinderella-type stories, you should consider reading The Selection (Hunger Games-ish) and A Kiss at Midnight (Cinderella with no magic, more wit). They're not particularly good books but they're fun to read!

Anyway today I want to talk about my visit to Regatta a couple of weeks ago. I have to be honest, I was only expecting the usual preppy stuff like polos, collared shirts, and sensible bottoms. Regatta does carry these must-haves - in better quality than what's usually in department stores - but I like that they came out with uber chic printed pieces! You'll see them later. ;)

Here's a quick tour!

Regatta has casual stuff for you and the special men in your lives

Unisex fragrances and accessories

These Regatta Body Sprays smell quite nice. They can be worn by both guys and gals but if you were to choose something for yourself, I think the red/orange one is more feminine. I would call it a clean aqua scent with a musky base.

Shift dresses on sale! I think they're still on, so don't miss it

Gorgeous shift dress. I wish I have the arms for this sort of endeavor :P

...and I don't have the waist for this one but I really like the casual cheekiness of the thing

Another shift dress. Unfortunately they only have it in small and extra small (at least in Glorietta 3)

I regret not buying this navy skirt as it fits super well and it's only roughly P800!

Pink shorts!


So what did I end up getting? Regatta gave me P3,000 to shop with. It was a difficult choice as I liked a lot of the stuff I mentioned above, but these are the ones that went home with me. They stood out because of their chic prints and well, they flatter my body type. 

I look good in polos, what can I say! Haven't worn this yet but I'm imagining it with a black skirt. 

Ahh, the crowd favorite

Expect to see these in other posts. ;) A reader commented that the polos above are now on sale, so that's another reason to visit Regatta. 

But wait! Regatta would like to show some love to Project Vanity readers. I have five shower gel and lotion sets to give away to five people. To join, just follow me on Twitter (@lizlan) and tell me your favorite preppy-chic find at Regatta. Don't forget to hashtag #projectvanitydotcom so I can track all entries. I will pick five winners by November 9, Saturday, and these winners must be able to pick up the set from the Glorietta 3 Regatta branch. Let's go!
