What I Wore @ the Penthouse: The New Romantic

11:59 AM

Hello lovelies!

I hope you're all having a great week so far. I'm sure you're all busy snapping up shots of your gorgeous sartorially-forward selves, or finding the next big thing to blog about... and on that note, I would love to thank all of you for still finding the time to drop by and leave comments! I may not answer your posts and reactions in real time, but do know that they are deeply appreciated and will be reciprocated in kind.:)

As i have previously mentioned, I skipped and hopped over to the uber luxe
Penthouse (from the same people who brought in the equally impressive Loft) for the Preview Party of The Penthouse Fashion Series, a hot fusion of the best young designers+great clubbing. My expectations were certainly met-and more. Here's what I wore:


lace and mesh top- vintage
custom Dhoti pants- Yves Identify
belt-Primark (UK)
open-toed slingback booties-Janilyn

playing around with the saturation settings... looks and feels vintage

Being close friends with a stylist/designer definitely has its perks, one being indefinitely "borrowing" their designs. Hehehe. These incredible coral Dhotis that he designed has been on my watchlist for quite awhile, and I made sure to rock it for the occasion.:)

Chillin' out with all the lovely people: my BFF/stylist Yves, lifestyle writer Vanessa Balbuena, and the Penthouse's top PR honcho, Angela Emphasis (thank you very much for accomodating!)


The show was a great success in my book, and that's not just saying it-- the styling was impeccable, the maquillage flawless, and the models selected couldn't have been more perfect for the outfits they rocked.. most definitely a great show, one made possible by its talented director, fashion impressario Dino Lloren. **claps claps

Here's a few looks:

a gorgeous pleather bodycon dress by my friend, the uber-talented Mique Yapching.. this is on my watchlist too!! hehehe... Hiya Mique..

my good friend Harvey Cenit's piece de resistance for the night: tres chic, tres flouncy, tres Parisian minidress.. tres adorable!

the models looking statuesque in the ubiquitous final group pose

And of course, where the show is at, expect the fabulous partyphiles to be there:

Spotted the sexy Rockell in a simple ensemble with a tinge of rocker chic. Wearing a vintage cardigan from YSL, liquid leggings from H&M, grandmother's vintage Hermes Birkin (how jealous am i?!!), and custom made shoes

with the city's local Alexander Wang and Olivier Theyskens combined, and one of my personal favorites, Mique Yapching. love his aesthetics!

the adorable and talented Harvey Cenit, spotted here canoodling with his boyfriend, in wrist bijoux pieces by the seriously rad Mark Anton Masa

Kudos to everyone who jammed at the Penthouse for another great party in the metro. An extra special thanks once more to The Penthouse's gorgeous PR gal Angela Emphasis for being extremely kind, and top Cebu designer Dino Lloren for filling us in on the deets.

Expect to see more of The Penthouse Fashion Series only here at Chic in The Tropics... bringing in the metro's best seen over to the global scene. XOXO.:)

  1. I really like the subtle sensuality of your lace/mesh top, its exquisite transparencies, AND your peep-toe booties, their wide side cleavage, "fetishistically" bewitching . . .
    ps: Your "Sarouel-esques" pants delightfully instil an "Oriental Goddess" laid-back twist on your charismatic presence !!!

    à Bientôt, Antoine
