Shoppin' at Penshoppe

Penshoppe launched their newest boutique in SM North EDSA yesterday so they invited some fashion bloggers to attend their opening party!


A little side-story. I cannot reiterate this enough: I have the most supportive bosses in the world! I was supposed to have work yesterday and was not supposed to have been able to go because the event was scheduled at 10AM - 1PM (I get off work at 2PM) but my bosses fixed my schedule just so I can attend ♥

My blog sisters and I had fun ogling at all the pieces Penshoppe has in stock. I have always been a big fan of this local brand (do you still remember when they got Mandy Moore as an endorser? I still have the paperboy cap she was wearing in the old Penshoppe paperbags in my closet!) and I always make sure to visit their TriNoma and SM North EDSA-Annex branches during paydays to check out new items. It's good to know that they added a new boutique to add to my must-visit places, especially since SM North EDSA is so near my office and apartment!

Take a load of these:


I wish I can wear shades, the purple pair I tried on is so flattering!
Denim Lab
I just so love ribbons and bows ♥

It's not a shopping party without some shopping! Penshoppe was so generous in giving all of us P3,000 worth of giftcards each so we can pick our favorite pieces. Before I show you what I got, here are the two other pieces I'm eyeing, but didn't "make the cut":

Gray-green jersey ruffle dress and khaki biker jacket
Here are the items I did get. Very rarely do I get to find jeans that fit me perfectly. Most of the time they hug my hips perfectly, but are too big for my waist. I am so glad the two jeans I tried on fit me perfectly. SCORE! I didn't let these go anymore ;)

I love the cut, the length and the fit.
My favorite denim jeans from now on!
(P1,199.00)
I love this! Black skinny jeans with silver studs.
(P999.00)
I am such a sucker for stripes and bows, so this billowy nautical top is perfect!
(P549.00)
I couldn't resist the silver bow necklace (P159.00) and this mustard cuff (P179.00)
Thank you Penshoppe, I love everything I got! See something you like? Visit the nearest Penshoppe branch now! Or, go to their newest boutique at SM North EDSA (it's in the main mall, ground floor level) so you can see their new look!

Aside from the shopping spree Penshoppe gave us, the yummy lunch sponsored by Yellow Cab and BonChon Chicken, and the raffle draw where lucky winners got more Penshoppe and The Spa gift cards and even a digital camera, we also had a Blogger Styling Challenge. Ana, Ava and I teamed up and here's the look we came up with:

The Hippies!
I love how our mannequin has a little bit something of each of us: Ana's bohemian vibe, Ava's mojo for layering, and my love for flirty, floaty fabrics. Please help us win by voting for our entry! All you have to do is Like Penshoppe's Facebook page here, and then  Like our entry here. Voting ends on 22 July 2011. THANK YOU SO MUCH! ♥

I really love it when local brands step up. It was such a proud moment for the Filipinos when Penshoppe was able to get THE Ed Westwick as a brand endorser!


Oh, to get lost in his piercing stare ♥

Ed was interviewed by senior correspondent Anjali Rao during his highly-publicized trip here in the Philippines (which was actually his first visit to Asia. Cool huh?) as lead endorser for Penshoppe's 25th anniversary. Highlights of his interview will be available online at www.cnn.com/talkasia after the first airing that will be today, 20 July 2011, at 5:30PM with replays all throughout the week (see show schedule for more details). For more information, you can visit www.cnnasiapacific.com. Tune in and be charmed!

Gosh, there are still so many pieces I still want to buy, like the flats, that biker jacket, the maxi dress... Must. Wait. For. Payday. Because I would gladly work for clothes and shoes ;)
