I bought this black romper from Promod last year for like 4,000 bucks. It was more than I would usually spend for one piece of clothing - a "onesie" at that (sounds so disgusting) - but I needed something to wear for the Preview ball. I'm so glad I coughed up the money. I've worn this piece countless of times since it has a flattering fit and deep pockets (!), it doesn't need ironing, and is thus perfect for traveling! I'll probably wear it until it quits on me!
Anyway, I thought I'd post this look since a lot of you gals asked me what I wore. ^_^ I recently got this white jacket from Stradivarius for P3,300. Yes I know it looks like a trench coat but it's made of rather thin material. It's really more of a long jacket! Here's an actual trench coat I got from the same brand.
As you know I LOVE shopping in Stradivarius. I'm there at least once a week! They have lovely basics as well as pieces that can turn up the sophistication of any look. I hope they keep up the great merchandising. Right now I like them better than Zara.
Since I was going for a clean, streamlined look, I only wore a ring and a watch by way of accessories. The nude pumps are from Ferretti! So comfy, as usual.
Here's my face that day. I wore rather heavy makeup because it was an evening thing and I expected that the event will run a bit long. True enough, we were there from 5:30PM to 9PM. I chose only long-wearing, tried-and-tested makeup for this face because the venue was also outdoors - no aircon wah! Let's run through the products quickly:
Face. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Compact, MAC Studio Finish Concealer blemishes), K-Palette Zero Kuma Concealer (eye bags) Shiseido White Lucent Spot-Control Foundation to set
Cheeks. Ellana Kitten mineral blush, Happy Skin Feeling Sculptacular Contour kit for contouring
Eyeshadows. NARS Pro Prime, Lorac Pro Palette (Garnet on the lids, Deep Purple on the crease, Taupe to blend the crease, and Cream for the brow bone)
Eye definition. K-Palette eyebrows pen, MAC brow mascara in Quiet Brunette, Heavy Rotation liquid eyeliner topped with the pencil liner for the blackest black line, Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara (yes I didn't wear falsies!)
Lips. Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippie in Honeymoon Glow.
And that is that. ^_^ Hope you like the look!
