Style Origin at Market! Market!

07 June 2012

So I thought my schedule will allow me to breathe more freely after the Bloggers United Bazaar Part Three, but no, I spent each one of my three day-break from work after the bazaar attending events! Not that I'm complaining, though. They're tiring, yes, but fulfilling and fun as well as I got to bond with my friends during and after.

The Sunday after the bazaar, I met up with my friend Regine so we can go to Style Origin at Market! Market! I chose her as my 'plus one' because she would be leaving Manila on the first week of July to study in Australia and [even though we've seen each other in person for only three times ever since we became friends online about seven years ago] I'm going to miss her. Thanks to Kelly for offering to let us ride in his car with him and his 'plus one' Paul :)

Style Origin is an annual event that reinforces the position of Ayala Malls as the premier lifestyle and shopping destination in the Philippines. Through its three month-series of unique lifestyle initiatives that feature the fusion of modern design, fashion, music and style, Style Origin has re-defined and elevated retail experience to a whole new level.

I chose to watch the High Street Fashion show and skip Menswear so Rej and I could still bond after. I used a crappy camera so the photos I took are not blog-worthy *sad face*, but here are some I was able to take:

High Street Fashion showcases the latest collections of world class and local brands. The pieces used in the show came from: Human, Swish, BClub, Marithe de Francois Girbaud, Silverworks, Wrangler, Tomato, Payless, Folded&Hung, Surfers Island, Leaveland, Maldita, Wade, Plains & Prints, Unica Hija, Rusty Lopez, Celine, Get Laud!, Just G, Heatwave, Petit Monde, GIBI, and Lee.

Local band Up Dharma Down also provided entertainment.
Me, Earth, Paul, Kelly
I love watching fashion shows because I get to see how the clothes look like when worn by a real human being and not a mannequin. I fell in love with these two dresses:

I'm not sure if you can see it because of poor photo quality, but that's a teal/ white maxi dress.
I am so in love with this dress from Petit Monde. I wiiiish I can buy it.
After the show, Rej and I went to Serendra so we can bond more over desserts while the rest stayed behind to watch the Menswear show. Check out Style Origin on Facebook and Twitter to see photos from the other shows done at the other Ayala Malls ;)

You can also check out Style Souk happening now at Market! Market! until tomorrow, June 8, and score great fashion finds from different brands! I was given gift cards to spend on a mini shopping spree there last Tuesday, and I got these:

Wanna see what's inside? :)
I got a new watch from Skechers (P2,395) and a new pair of gray capri pants from Unica Hija (P495)!
Thank you, Ayala Malls!
Even my boss and officemates think it looks great. One of my bosses even said it looks like Lego haha. Thanks to Ana for helping me choose which watch to buy!
I love that it looks trendy yet still classy. I love it so much, I haven't stopped wearing it since heehee.
While in Market! Market!, you might want to join Star Style Picks and win a P25,000 shopping spree and a special feature in Philippine Star's Star Style Picks section. You can check the full mechanics on Style Origin's Facebook page. Good luck!

Now I kinda regret not being able to go at the earlier legs of Style Origin. Oh well, there's always next year! ;)
