Awards Night | Congratulations to my friend Valerie, who was recognized for her work in private investment and family office by CityWealth 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
.
Based in Zurich, this amazing woman also founded @veramoments, which brings Philippine designers to the Swiss stage.
.
She says of her all-white ensemble, "Thanks for making my winning outfit Jill. I was overdressed in the best way! I stood out in a sea of black!"
.
Humbled and grateful to be part of your special moment ✨✨✨Thank *you*

I see bows everywhere 🎀 wish I could wrap up the week just as neatly as this.

Languid, streamlined, relaxed, and sexy -- just a few reasons why slip dresses appeal to me.
.
Well, that and the promise that I can go straight to bed looking fabulous 💁🏻 👸🏻

How many times can one wear a black dress? Let us count the ways...
.
Look 1. If Kate Middleton did ethnic, we guess this might be it -- cut slim with a Sabrina neckline to show off her figure and clavicle.
.
Look 2. RSVP for an invite that says 'Ethnic Cocktail' perhaps? 🍸
.
Look 3. With the right amount of detail, a floor-length skirt brings the look into an evening affair.
.
Look 4. Pulling out all stops via layering, this three-piece ensemble ensures a commanding presence.
.
Look 5 (not pictured) -- Anything goes. Paired with anything from a tshirt to a barong, the floor-length skirt is as elegant as is versatile.
.
Whatever I've planned for her, I look forward to seeing Anna wear these pieces her way 💛🖤❤️

Not many people know this, but I enjoy the challenge of creating something to pair with clients' existing pieces. It requires me to take a step back and see how my own vision can be incorporated with another.
.
In addition, it's mixing and matching pieces and lengthening the life of one's wardrobe that makes it doubly fulfilling 💛
.
Here, I'm preparing a gold satin twill for a blouse to pair with a multicolor @escadaofficial skirt.

Wrap Pants FAQs | Coco and Zoey fighting over the last pair of Amara pants in black and white spot. Don't worry, other patterns are in stock! I'm answering frequently asked questions below:
.
1) What sizes does it come in? It's free size, accommodating 24"-34" waistlines. Length is 41" from top of waistband and can be worn from high- to mid-waist, depending on your preference.
2) What patterns are available? Please swipe left to see all patterns still in stock.
3) How do I go to the bathroom in them? Also swipe left for a quite awkward video 🙈 you asked; we answer.
.
Keep the questions coming 💛

The blissful multisensory experience of unfurling pleated panels -- ahhhhh the sound, texture, buoyancy, and transparency 😍❤️
.
Yep, no need for drugs. Just give me pleats and I'm on a high.

A Beautiful Mistake | After a custom barong dress came back wayyy too short from production, I had a strip of organza pleated and pinned it on for our second fitting.
.
My client thought the pleated panel elevated her dress in formality and elegance. What started out as a mistake led to a well-incorporated design that's even better than the original.
.
I'm thankful for calm and open-minded clients who give me the freedom to solve mistakes as they arise. I'm also reminded of how God allows opportunities to show the beauty and blessing I otherwise would've missed had everything been "perfect" the first time around.

This photo by Yi Huisi reminds me of all the times I want to wear a bold print or color while remaining inconspicuous :)
.
Anyone feel the same way?

Happy weekend!

Wear This Way | I'll always be an advocate of multifunctional pieces. Wore this tulle piece to lunch to elevate a nude top and white jeans.
.
I can imagine taking this pearl-dotted tulle from the beach to the bedroom, but I'll let lovebirds take the latter option ;)
.
Where would you take this piece? Looking forward to your ideas 💭 .
