TMM Fashion: Street-Smart Dressing at the Rustan's Color It Summer Event

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

#fashion #ootd

So last Monday was Rustan's Color It Summer event at Raffles and I just had a fabulous time! In the invitation, they told us to come in summer-ready clothes, something comfortable, and yet dressy I guess. Rummaging through my closet, this is what I came up with!

I just love wearing harem pants because I think it has a lot of character/personality. At least for me. I also think that tie-dye shirts are just so fresh and cool to the eyes when it's in pastel colors. And so, I just put the two together, and this is my summer style for the event: Street Smart Casual.

You may notice that in the following photos I am not wearing my necklace anymore because I just didn't like how it looked. I don't know, I just felt like it was too much... Oh and it made me look like I had no neck. Ha! But I love that neckpiece. That one is from, where else, Forever 21. I'll wear that again in another outfit post.

I love Street Style fashion because it is a type of fashion that displays the personality of the person who is wearing the clothes (sometimes, still a little controversial to others). There are still a lot of fashion pieces out there that is trending but I don't wear them because I love dressing up according to my body type.

Like for example, the skater skirt. Not that I have anything against them, I just don't buy them because I know it won't look good on me. I don't have a waist, and a cut like that will emphasize my midsection even more.

Forgive me, I still had some coffee in my mouth when hubby just started snapping photos. LOL

My sunnies are my hubby's. He got them from Adora a few years ago and they're his favorite pair. But I am the one who uses them now. Yay!

Oh! That's a Tall Decaf Non-Fat Latte w/ 1 Splenda from Starbucks. Yes, it's my favorite drink: Uncomplicated and simple. But my personality and fashion style is anything but. Hahaha!

I am so addicted to white nail polish this summer. Whether it's flat white, matte, cream, off white or pearlized, I love them all! You might see me wearing this shade this whole summer!

I don't know why I have a Zoolander face in this photo. LOL A cross between a funny face and a Zoolander smile. Ha! I am not particularly fond of this pose but it was the only clear shot we had since we had to just sneak that photo! We did a drive-by kind of shot in front of that office window! Hahaha!

Show some harem love!

And now, I would like to share with you the photos (this time, these photos are by me!)  I took from the Rustan's Color It Summer Event!

It was a pool-party themed event at Raffles Hotel in Makati.

A delicious barbecue buffet was set-up for the guests...

And all you can eat grilled food! YUM.

And some fresh salad...

Fresh Buko juice still in it's coconut shell, and smoothies!

Chilled fruits were just everywhere too!

Nom nom nom... Pina Colada flavored Macarons!

So I saw my friends and my sister at the event, all of them wearing colors of summer and I just love it! Colors you'll see me wear! I am envious of Dina's skirt and my sister's floral jumpsuit.

Lana Vistan, Margs Lopez, and Dina Tantoco
Lifestyle blogger extraordinaire Rica was there too! Sorry about my hair... It was so windy at the venue, and my frizzy hair and the wind don't mix.

Me with Lifestyle Blogger, Rica De Jesus (
... And free flowing bubbly too! *hic!*

My sister and Lana Vistan
The fashion show was upbeat and I was really the perfect kick-off to a rockin' summer! Colorful hues and light textures and fabrics ready to beat the heat!

Let me show you the press release photos of what Rustan's has in store for you this summer! I am just LOVIN' the colors and the entire collection. Here's just a sneak peak of my favorite stuff from this season!



MINT! I am just loving this color this season: mint. It's every where and I love how soothing it is to the eyes. My sister and I bought a pair of sunglasses that had mint as an accent. I'll show them to you one time!

I am lusting over this necklace too. Perfect not only for summer! It comes in gold too! This one is from their fine jewelry collection.

And here are some photos from their Summer Campaign:
