Almost a month ago, I had the privilege to be there at the opening day of a spanish clothing line in the Philippines, Suiteblanco at the Mall of Asia. It was all thanks to Fatima Rabago, spanish model/make up artist (who is the pretty wife of Hideo Muraoka by the way) who hosted a contest regarding the store. Luckily, I was chosen as her winner for the contest so that day, I get to shop items from Suiteblanco for free! I was there checking the stores along with the other winners when one by one the ambassadors (mainly models in the industry) came to shop as well. I got gorgeous items from my gift certificates, which was worth Php3000.00 and the bonus was the total price was also included for their 20% discount. So my shopping budget went up to Php3600! You will see the items that I bought as you get to the end of the post but for now, I'll give you a glimpse of what their shop offer.
This is how the store looks from the outside. Since it was opening day, there were a lot of people that went to the store to shop. My attention immediately caught this display given the lovely dress. I love how they styled it with the available heeled sandals. They even have a native looking bag that I really adore. Did I buy the dress? Check scroll up to the end for you to find out *wink*.
Suiteblanco staff even prepared these treats for shoppers. Those candies were really cute in the counter that I ended up getting some myself.
You were probably thinking that I ended up hoarding some of these lovelies. Unfortunately, I am really not into hi-cut bikinis so I was really sad to see the price and not able to buy at least a pair.
They also have pretty shoes/sandals in their collection. Personally, I like the two pairs placed in the third row.
These are some of the photos of their Accessories Section. I think the price range of these are roughly the same with Forever 21.
They have lots of clothes that are fit for office work that if I did not control myself, I might bought something aside from the amount that I could splurge that day.
Here's a photo of me and Fatima. She is really tall and pretty. I wish she would do a makeup workshop one day. I'll be happy to attend that if ever.
And here are the items that I bought from Suiteblanco! I didn't find my plain blanket so please bear with the printed bedsheet haha!
|black sling bag/pouch - Php1199.00|
|set of earrings - Php349.00|
|headband - Php279.00|
|socks - Php149.00|
|floral dress - Php1699.00|
Among the items that I got from Suiteblanco, I think this one is something that I am willing to purchase from my own pocket given the style and the quality of the dress. I'm still thinking when to wear this one though. Two planned trips are still coming up so hopefully I get to take photos wearing it and share with you my idea of styling it. Anyway I hope all of you had a very relaxing weekend. one more week and we all get to celebrate another occasion. Can't wait for Father's Day! Happy Monday to everyone!
