Bloggers United Bazaar

Dress: H&M (altered to be shorter) | Vest: Xhilaration for Target | Shoes: Androgyny | Bag: Aranaz

Today, I attended the Bloggers United Bazaar, where popular local fashion bloggers sold their pre-loved (and brand new) clothes and accessories. The event was held with the objective of helping local bloggers get to know and interact with each other more. I personally find it a great idea, since the local blogosphere just seems to be getting bigger and bigger! And, well, quite obviously the photo above shows you what I wore. I went for a monochromatic Urban-Jungle-inspired outfit with different shades and variants of brown (and veeeery minute hints of blue.)

Textures galore! 

I love abusing mom's old jewelry. Don't you just love the intricacy on that shell necklace?

The ruched detailing on my dress's sleeves really fascinates me.

Me and my short, sparse eyelashes. :(

I attended the event with Roxci. She's become quite a household name in this blog. Haha!

Beautiful shoes at Kookie Buhain's booth. I'd have totally copped those Jessica Simpson platforms if only I were a size 6.


Here are some of the bloggers who participated in the bazaar! Clockwise from top left: Rosanna Aranaz, Patricia Prieto, Karl Leuterio with Lissa Kahayon, Tricia Gosingtian with Dominique Tiu and Paul Jatayna.

I love Chictopia too!

After we left the bazaar, Roxci and I hit Pagliacci at The Podium for some Gelato.

We both ordered Hazelnut after sampling a whole bunch of their other flavors-- and it was delicious; It reminded us of Nutella and Ferrero Rocher. One cone with two scoops cost us only Php100. Rather worth it, if I may say so myself!

This is one of my purchases from the bazaar. These nude platform booties were from Shoe Etiquette. Not only do they look good, they're a total breeze to walk in, too! I also read on their site that the fabric is vegan-friendly. I'm not vegan, but that still merits from plus points, does it not? Oh, and one more thing.. The store's owner totally let me have the pair reserved during the bazaar until I got my money, made up my mind and bought them. What a sweetie! Plus plus plus points! Haha. :D

 I now have 5 pairs of shoes with nude/brown color schemes. And then 99% of the rest of my heels are black. ...COLOR? WHAT IS THIS “COLOR” YOU SPEAK OF? I’VE NEVER HEARD OF IT.

Sarcasm aside, the night is young and I must set off! I wish I could have met more people earlier, though. Hopefully there'll be a next time, because I enjoyed myself a lot, and so did Roxci! Here's to the fabulous Filipino blogosphere.
