Thanks to the crazy traffic in Manila, I missed several opportunities to ogle pieces during Philippine Fashion Week. Sucks, I know. One show I was planning on watching was SM Shoes and Bags but never got ‘round to. So, like any other sane person would do, I stalked their new products. I’m semi-kidding (about my sanity). Happened to fall in love with a few pieces and figured I’d just come up with several polyvore-like outfits with them because, why not? My dream looks were quite easy to complete thanks to Net-a-Porter, a site I have a love-hate relationship with. Love ‘coz, well, it’s always nice to window shop the most coveted designer pieces and hate ‘coz, duh, I can’t afford them. (can’t afford them YET- don’t mind this, this is me The Secret-ing.) Anyway, here are the three pieces and the corresponding awesome outfits that, in my imagination, fit perfectly.

Leather paneled stretch crepe midi skirt, ALEXANDER WANG | Chunky knit sweater, THEYSKENS’ THEORY | Round frame sunglasses, THE ROW | Nail Lacquer in Moderne Red and Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Tamara Red, LAURA MERCIER | Love is All You Need canvass bag and Braided silver ring, FOREVER 21 | SM PARISIAN

Intarsia knitted skirt, MARY KATRANTZOU | | Pointed heels, VALENTINO | Tank, pink scarf and rhinestone earrings, H&M | Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic, LAURA MERCIER | Black buckled boots with faux fur, SM PARISIAN

Cat eye acetate sunglasses, THE ROW | Lucy clutch, CHLOE | Bow earrings, FOREVER 21 | Tent tank and sweater, H&M | Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Deco Rouge, LAURA MERCIER | Cream buckled ankle boots, SM PARISIAN

Also, I do realize I wear/like/am obsessed with sweaters like I’m not by the equator but I can’t help it.

What do you guys think? Dreamy, right? At least some of the pieces there I can actually own – some of the accessories, the make up (Laura Mercier should be at any Rustan’s branch) and, well, those boots and that perforated cotton-candy pink purse. I’m heading to Megamall this weekend to shop SM Parisian. See you there?
