Floral Prints, Pinks, & Frills for a Summer to Remember!



These summer dresses from Republic are definitely my favorite picks for the season. Pink hues exude an ultra-feminine look and feel. Floral prints are flattering and fun. And, frills are downright flirty.



Summer Garden Stroll
Make this Miso Floral Dress stand out by wearing white accessories or match your accessories with the colored floral prints. Bold colors and large pieces work well with small floral prints.





Sweet Summer Valentine
This Miso Floral Plaited Dress is a charmer. Small-breasted women benefit from the plaits on the bust area. Yellow is a more appropriate color pair than pink because it never overwhelms the dress. Wear with heart charms and earrings.





One Summer Picnic
Miso Daisy Dress is perfect for family picnics. Plain red and pink accessories (to contrast with the elaborate floral design) and lovely flats for your feet are my best bets.





Summer Night Party
This gorgeous Miso 2 Tone Cross Dress is a certified attention catcher. Complete the sexy look with a pair of high heels, silver accessories, and a flower clutch.

Avon Fashions Unveils Summer Collection 2010

March 14, 2010


Avon Fashions Summer Collection 2010 Launch





Avon Fashions Penthouse was the theme for the annual Avon Fashions Summer Collection launch last March 10, 2010. Once again, Avon Fashions captivated the fashion industry for its summer collection of Intimate Apparel, Jewelry, and Accessories.






We were welcomed with city-skyline view, mouthwatering cocktails, and 3 rooms to satisfy our fashion cravings. The Intimate Apparel room allowed us to take a lingerie personality test and take home an Avon Fashions undergarment which matches our personality. The Accessories Room was loaded with summer must-haves like flipflops, shades, bags, and wallets and we get to bring home some items as gifts. And in the Jewelry Room, we were mesmerized with jewelry pieces and as we try them on, we were told to keep them. That was a fab fashion experience!








The excitement continued when Avon Fashions Style Ambassador Ruffa Gutierrez took the stage and hosted the fashion show. She said, "I'm proud to speak for a brand that offers high quality products and allows Filipinas to be fashionable while being practical. And that's important nowadays... to be a sensible fashionista."

Bianca Gonzalez, the new Avon Mix endorser who was also present during the event, shared her thoughts about Avon, "Being the face of such a big brand is indeed flattering. I am ecstatic to be representing the Avon Mix Jewelry and Accessories line. I am excited to share this news and give my fashionista fans the chance to try these new pieces."


The Avon Fashions Summer Collection 2010 fashion show showcased eight (8) fashion stories: Kaleidoscope Summer, Tutti Frutti, One Love, Spring Fantasy, Ode to Leaves, Pool Party, Bouquet of Memories, and Black Rose.







It was a night to remember for guests, fashionistas, and bloggers like me. Thanks Avon for making every summer fashionable!

Tube Flops - Not Your Average Flip Flops!




Aside from the Oscars, do you know what's been buzzing around the fashion world this season?

Tube Flops. Tube Flops are flip flops with tube socks or leg warmers attached. Women who love to experiment on their style will definitely be excited for these.

Sanuk, a brand known for comfortable and stylish sandals, introduced their TubeFlops with 8 available designs/colors and in 5 different lengths (6-10 inches). Each pair costs USD $30.00 or roughly Php 1,300.00.







I don't think everyone can pull this off. I mean, seriously, the first time I saw these slippers with built-in warmers I find them weird for my taste. Again, fashion goes with personal style. If you're not comfortable and if you think you can't carry this look well, do not consider buying.

But, if you think they're cool enough to grace your closet and they go well with your outfits, why not? Go ahead, run to the nearest Sanuk outlet, try them on, pick what color you can imagine yourself wearing often, decide a certain length which flatters your legs the most, and purchase a pair without hesitation.




Of course, Tube Flops would look awesome on models because they have been blessed with loooooong legs. Do not be fooled; it is still best to try them on before purchasing them online.

Unfortunately, this is yet another fad. Fads, as we know, fizzle out fast. After the tube flops trend fever is over and you're unsure if it's still cool to wear them in public, save them during cold summer nights at the beach or in one of your future private getaways, and even in photo shoots and costume parties. Be creative enough so that you get the most out of what you paid for.



My Best bets:
  • pair with short shorts and mini skirts
  • safest colors: black and silver

I love to see my 3-year old sister wearing them, especially the pink one. She loves walking around the house on bare feet and gets her legs bitten by mosquitoes so I think these are perfect for her. Kids version will be way too cool. Hopefully soon.
