August 22, 2010

Binky Burrow is a cute and silly world of bunnies; a fresh brand that offers graphic tees and lifestyle products such as mugs, notebooks, and pillows that features silly bunny designs.

"Binky" is "that amazing hoppy-jumpy, skippy-twisty, throw-themselves-through-the-air-sideways thing rabbits do when they’re extra happy". That's what gave the owners of the brand, China and Carlos, inspiration to start creating a world of silliness, cuteness, and happiness. And it all started with this special binky bunny, Bonbon.

Check out some cute and silly items..

Jeggings: Half Jeans, Half Leggings

August 07, 2010

If you're not a fan of wearing tights or leggings due to their thin fabric or you simply want a new "jeans" experience, try Jeggings!

Jeggings became popular in 2009, when Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton were seen strutting a couple of pairs. Jeggings may look like a pair of skinny jeans, but they are made with a lighter material, a type of nylon named nylon PV1.

I think that maternity jeans use the same material as jeggings. They also have faux zip-flies and pockets, and elastic waistbands with no pockets.

Tips on wearing Jeggings:
  • Find a pair you're comfortable with - do not purchase a pair if you have slight hesitations.
  • Following the rules in women's clothing, pick a dark colored pair which would simply go with everything.
  • Long sweaters and tees are best bets.
  • Get accessories from

Here in the Philippines, you can buy jeggings at 168 Divisoria Mall, Topshop, Freego, Marks & Spencer, Landmark Department Store, and Bench.

August 03, 2010

If you're one of those budget babes who want to look and feel fab without shelling out too much, it's time that you Get Laud!

Get Laud! is a clothing brand which started out as a small retail store and now shifting gears up to another level. They use "imported high-quality and fashionable fabrics, stylishly cut and sewn locally for the wearer's comfort and satisfaction."

In 2005 and 2006, the brand received the Seal of Excellence Award as the "BEST SPANDEX APPAREL RETAIL STORE" awarded by the National Shopper’s Association of the Philippines and by the National Shopper’s Choice Awards. And last April 15, 2008, it was awarded "Most Promising Retailer" for 2007 by Ayala Malls (Market Market).

Get Laud! has recently signed up with TV host/actress and model Ms. Phoemela Baranda. She can been seen daily on TV Patrol as anchor for Star Patrol, and appears on the Buzz.

I'm simply impressed with how this brand offer pieces in affordable prices without sacrificing quality. Prices for dresses start at Php 500 above, but not more than Php 1,000. This year's collection boasts of floral, bohemian, mosaic, stripe, and animal prints. Also available are sexy bandage dresses.
