Bye Bye Kate MOSS xoxo TOPSHOP!

Kate Moss collection in TOPSHOP (one of British bad-ass brand) is coming to an end or should I say AXE!? After three years and 14 collections in TOPSHOP, Kate Moss last collection will unveil this coming October. TOPSHOP owner Philip Green says that there are no hard feelings.

But...(from fashionindie)

A source tells Britain’s Sunday Times, “Kate Moss’ range has not been selling at the same rate that it was and was in danger of running out of steam. At one point, she was doing six collections a year but they cut it back to two a year because they could not sustain it and that is when it started to falter.”

She still have lots of collaborations to other POWER brands like Longchamp, so who cares?


There are two items that will make me in very happy and those are bags and shoes! It's a must for me during my rest day from work to stroll and do some shopping. Last Sunday, after the gym, I went to Robinson's Place Ermita near Slimmers World and check new items in Charles and Keith. Charles and Keith is a Singaporean brand that sells shoes, bags, and accessories. Here in the Philippines, Charles and Keith is distributed by Ben Chan (Bench owner). After 15 minutes inside C&K, VOILA!! Lets welcome the new addition to my bag collection: BANIG!.


Oh..and I spotted new bags I like...and might get before the year ends...

Meet Padlock... see the details of the bag...isn't this GORGEOUS?


And Gagita!..

Betchai-golly WOW!!!

First of all, I would like to congratulate my very dearly beloved BFF (you know who you are) because last Saturday, she's officially getting married. Her boyfriend...ehemmmm... fiance proposed to her. I don't know the details yet about the proposal... I'm waiting (heard you went crazy?).

I was acquainted with the soon to be groom (SBTG) in looking for the engagement ring. I searched the street of Ongpin in Binondo and other malls during my day off or retail therapy. The street of Ongpin in Binondo is a nice place to buy jewelry, specifically a ring with diamond (ranging from PH 12, 000 or $250 and above), but if you're planning to buy there and you' have no idea with the real thing, you need someone whose an expert with the real bling bling, because for me (I'm not into jewelry thingy)...if the jewelry store is not well-known or located and have a boutique inside the malls, I have a doubt that they are real. I end up eating an egg tart from Lord Stow in Ongpin while doing the ring shopping. I found the perfect ring at ACME Jewelry in SM Mall of Asia, before we watch Inception with my friends. A 0.10 karat diamond and 18 karat (I forgot) white gold ring with gold that surrounds the diamond, simple, elegant, and GORGEOUS! Told immediately to STBG the location of the ring. Last Saturday, I received a text from STBG that he gave the ring to my BFF.. my reaction was.... I DIED! ohMyGod! (with my reaction, I felt I was the one who got engaged!...KALOKA!!)

Looking for an engagement ring is very hard, especially  if you're on a tight budget. So I sympathize to all the guys whose looking for a ring to propose to their girlfriend. Engagement ring shouldn't be big as your eye ball (for heaven sake.. but that would be BANANAS!), if you're on a tight budget? a 0.10 karat or lower diamond is perfectly fine but if you have plenty of $$$, then why not spend over PH 20, 000 or $500.

ACME Jewelry is having an on-going Go na!
2nd Floor, Mall of Asia (near the Center Stage Theater).

Slim Fit or Italian Fit? What Eva!

I love French girls because of chic and fabulous style but Italian guys are you know why?

Based from The Sartorialist himself, Italian guys look sexy because of two main factors; Back dart and meticulously rolled-up sleeves.

photo from The Sartorialist

A darted shirt is a two stitched down folds of fabric on the back of the shirt that gives you a fitted look (in-case you have no idea what back dart means!), but it depends on your preference how fit you wanted it to be. Many brands nowadays sell darted shirt (slim fit) but cost higher compare to a regular shirt without dart,  brands like Zara, Topman, United Colors of Benetton, and even high-end brands. But you can have darted shirt without costing you much. A visit to your favorite seamstress and repair your regular fit shirt is an inexpensive way to have darted shirt, how much will it cost you? less than PH 200 or $4?

So if you want the "Italian Fit"...DART it! LOL.
But I don't want to see flashing nips! hahaha... it means too tight!

Except this guy...yumminess (photo from The Sartorialist)

Memoir of the Style Goddess

Grace Coddington, my idol will write a memoir about her self and fashion history through her magnificent eyes with the help of the former editor-in-chief of Men's VOGUE Jay Fielden.

photo from here

Excerpt from WWD's story:

Coddington confirmed she is working with Fielden. “We’re just starting, and I think it’s going to be a really fun project,” she told WWD, adding: “I’m hoping it’s going to be very rich in fashion history. It’s more than just about me.”

The book will cover Coddington’s early life in Wales, her modeling days in Sixties London, the car accident that changed her career path and her ascendancy through fashion’s ranks as a stylist and editor at British Vogue and, later, its American counterpart.

Looking forward and super excited.... 

SSSSHHHH... I'm their Queen BEE! LOL

Since most of my favorite US TV series are on hiatus, I searched to my favorite websites to download EZTV and Demonoid and found Pretty Little Liars.

Pretty Little Liars is about four girls, the disappearance of their queen bee, and the mysterious "A" who threatens the girls in exposing their secrets:

-- Aria's relationship with her yummy teacher Ezra.
-- Emily likes girls (revealed)
-- Spencer is a whore-wrecking sister
-- Hannah's struggling to lose weight

The series is like Desperate Housewives but cooler, hip, and fresh. So what are you waiting for? Watch na... I'm already done till episode 10!

Who is A?

Photos from here

America's Next Top Model Cycle 15 is taking the high-end route for this season. The longest running model search in the US, hosted by supermodel Tyra Banks.

Not only that... this season guest judges are insanely high fashion! From designers Roberto Cavalli, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Zac Posen to fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier and Matthew Rolston to supermodels of IMG models Karolina Kurkova, Margherita Missoni, and Kyle Hagler. Even the editor-in-chief of Itallian Vogue, Franca Sozzani, will be a guest judge.

Pinkstarshop...for Marc by Marc Jacobs addict

Most of my friends know that I like Marc Jacobs... I accept anything as long it's Marc Jacobs, either the high-end brand (Marc Jacobs) or the affordable brand (Marc by Marc Jacobs). Although Marc by Marc Jacobs is the affordable brand by MJ, special items from this brand of him is hard to find. You can  only buy the special items to only selected stores across the globe. In Asia, the closest MbMJ store that have the special items is the Causeway Bay branch in Hong Kong.

This morning, I received a tweet to check an online store that sells MbMJ special items, pinkstarshop!
