What I Wore: Glitz at the Gustavian 5.15

8:39 PM

Hello lovelies, it's Sunday morning (where I am)... how was YOUR weekend?

Did you get hammered? Or did you just stay home? Well whatever it was... hope you had fun all the same. No one likes a bad weekend! Here I am doing a bunch of catch-up posts.. as you well know, things have been hectic, blahblahblah...you guys know how things are with me!

We had the 2nd week's installment of the Glitz at the Gustavian Party Series last May 15, and what can I say? The event was
seriously bangin'. Featuring the collections of my good friends and babehs Chris Carlisle Jan Tatlonghari and Yves Martini Camingue along with the mixes of DJ Marvin Evangelista, there was of course tons of fun fabulousness all the way to the night.

your hostest with the mostest... for the evening

Since it was his (and Chris') night to shine, it was mandatory that my outfit has to be customized by Yves (as if I'd have it any other way hehe).. the adorable one created this deliciously draped black mini. it was effortlessly sexy..just the kind of thing I love to go for. and the great plus is.. I get to have it. hahaha. thanks hun!

this evening's designers Chris and Yves with models Qia and Gretel. also in view... me with my new Shubizz oxfords. love the white heel!

a picture with my lovely friend Kristine of StyleCebu.com. love how our outfit tones complement!

As expected, our friends will never miss a rockin' party. Some shots:

I'm actually gonna write a separate review for the designers and their collection, but here's a few BTS (behind the scenes) shots for you:

Again, my heart goes out to all of you who continue to support Chic In The Tropics! I haven't been back to full visiting and commenting mode.. just slowly doing it one at a time so please bear with me. Also, I've been given THREE awards from the lovelies, Annie, Ashita and Libby.. wow. thank you. you have no idea how much that means to me. I'll make sure to post in the next outing. Till then... XOXO!

**special thanks to Armand Alforque, Kristine Gianna Roa and Katya Zialcita for the photos:)
