What We Wore: Loving Leather at Mique Yapching Fashion Show

11:16 PM

Slap me with your pocketbooks for being such a space cadet!

Something incredibly crappy happened. This morning I multitasked on the desktop like I almost always do-- read some new comments, skyped with the boyf, responded to emails, finishing a writeup for a deadline.. when suddenly i spazzed out and accidentally deleted said comments.

I was totally crestfallen, of course. It's like that one time when i forgot to turn off my mike during my radio show and I could be heard yakking away in Cebuano through the radio (sssshhh. don't tell my boss).. this is an equally petrifying mistake, of which i am sorry.:( My friend had the mind to remind me that they are in my email, so at least, I am able to still keep those comments, but not be able to publish them. Oh, the woes of online life! :( Count on me not to repeat this mistake ever again, that's for sure.

Speaking of proverbial space cadets, my good friend and celebrated Cebu young designer Mique Yapching successfully capped off the Penthouse Fashion Series, and as expected, to astounding reviews. Knowing the mood of the collection, I chose to wear this to the occasion:

WEARING
The Exoskeleton- Identify by Yves
pleather leggings from Ebay
patent leather booties by Le Donne
Photobucket

Apparently inspired from its namesake, the Exoskeleton brings to mind the tough lines and grooves of the celluloid shells of say, a scorpion, or a centipede when you look at the details in the torso and hip area... dunno exactly what came over Yves to have scorpions as inspiration (oh, he has a huge one tattoed on his lower back, almost forgot), but it was the right call. Most def like this piece also for its sci-fi feel.

But of course, the event will certainly be amiss without the attendance and support of Mique's fashionable posse. Some shots:

I'm still awaiting for better photos from the show itself, so the review will have to be done sometime later on. But without biases, I'd have to say that Mique exceeded all expectations, and then some... no wonder this guy is just going places.

Again, much love to all of you. Sincerest apologies for the infractions of the morning, and do know that all comments, earnest, constructively critical, or just mentioned in passing, will always be appreciated. Thank you all for the love and the congratulatory remarks. XOXO

  1. My gosh, Eden you're so slim na! Suya ko da, hehe! :) I like the design of the top and it looks good especially when paired with the pleather leggings and booties. Kaya lang medyo nag-bulge ang middle part sa last photo nimo, but as a whole it's a rad outfit. :)

    PS: Your BFF Yves is a a very talented designer. ;)

  39. Hi Eden, just to let u know that i 've decided to privatize my blog. I had been stalked by someone who have been non stopped leaving those harsh comments on my blog. So i think to lock it up is that best resolve as i don't think i deserved all those craps from someone who i don't even know.
    Would u mind to give me ur e-mail add so i can invite u to read my blog?

    xoxo
