Shopping Obsession: Usharethis.net Online Launch!

8/31/2012 10:09:00 AM Chai Chen 14 Comments

Remember my post about The Philippines' Next SHopping Obsession - Usharethis.net? Guess what? It's launching tomorrow, September 1!


After all the anxiety and the long wait ... it's over!

Your next obsession truly begins here! At first, you may be curious what it's really all about, given the site name, correct? If you've read my previous teaser post; you'll find out what it's about as I give you a little tinge of information about it. Of course, there's more that meet's the eye! And you gotta check it out to really find out more about it!

What can fellow shopaholics like me get from this site?

Well, I can say I'm just as excited as you are! I'm anticipating a lot of items we could SHARE to the rest of the world and flag it as one of our obsessions! Yup - like 'em, share 'em, buy 'em! Something like that! Did I make sense? Haha!

What's good about it is - IT'S ONLINE and so, it is convenient for everyone! For people like me who's a workaholic too; with little time to really shop, this is my best resource! Online shopping at its finest. And with the promise of giving great finds to people like me, there's more support I give for this site than elsewhere! LOL.

So what do we do now?

Outfit Post: NFL Steelers Babe

8/29/2012 09:49:00 AM Chai Chen 8 Comments

NFL Theme Day! I support the Steelers Team!

We had face-painting activity that day too. I got my face and hand painted with the logos. Woot! Ain't it exciting?

And what's good about theme days is that, I get the chance the dress up and probably, do it in costume hehe. Although this time around, I don't really have a glam costume. I also didn't have the chance to buy and plan my look sooo ... I went with this one.

Honestly, I initially felt a little weird matching sporty-style with denim. I felt weird myself haha. I realized I don't really have a lot of "sporty" outfit but this one did the trick, somehow. I guess it turned out good. After all, it's  all about the fun.



Which team do you support? (^_^) Are you a fan? (^_^)

Outfit Post: Good Evening, Daytime!

8/27/2012 09:19:00 AM Chai Chen 5 Comments

So ... we were supposed to be in a "formal gown / cocktail dress" that day for our office Santacruzan ... uhmmm ... I don't have long gowns anymore but this dress was kept in stock ... I had to resort to this. (^_^)

And poof! The parade! Night dress at day time!
Well, call center life's like that anyway~

Royal!
Had these dresses been available during my JS Prom, I might have worn this one instead heheeh~


I loved this dress the first time I saw it and bought it right away since it's the last piece in this color. There was another one - in hot pink; but I figured it would be too striking for me to wear so I got this one instead. The cut, the color, the style - everything is perfect for a "royal look."

Do I look like Kate Middleton now? A style icon? LOL! Haler! Lots of fans would kill me lah~

PSY - GANGNAM STYLE (강남스타일)

8/26/2012 02:16:00 PM Chai Chen 6 Comments

Who is not addicted to this? Tell me?


I have been hearing the song at Seoul.fm but I've never seen the video. And now that I did, I can't help but say ... gosh! I'm addicted to it! >.< Eeek! I mean, who won't?

My fandom over kpop has gone beyond 2NE1 I guess though they're my absolute favorite. But I've listened to quite a number of songs and seen multiple other artist vids that made me go gaga over their songs too. This one didn't leave me hanging! It's crazy ... I do the horsey choreo now! Aaaccckkk!

Make Money from Fashion Marketing? Become a ROMWE Affiliate!

8/25/2012 09:17:00 AM Chai Chen 9 Comments

ROMWE, the latest street fashion online, is a fast growing retailer of women's clothes and accessories. They offer a wide selection of the latest fashionable clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories. I've just blogged about their wonderful leggings giveaway and I can't help but share the other good thing (among many others) from this brand!

I've been seeing their clothes and accessories on some of my favorite fashion bloggers' posts and I think they stand by their promise to deliver the "latest" street fashion online! Online shopping has never been this exciting ei?

Romwe was established in 2009 and has changed from a simple vintage specialty shop into a pint-sized platform of high-street fashion!

Runaway is no longer the only origin of fashion inspiration. In the next 5-10 years, or even half a century, the streets will become the exclusive type of an important trend. Wherever you are in a small village in Switzerland or in the fashion capital New York, whether you are a student with a love of fashion or a fashion blogger, in the absolute world, the street is a runway, where you can prove to the whole world that “I am a fashion girl” with your styling inspiration and cameras. So of course, there must be Romwe collections in your extraordinary wardrobe, right? I agree! I certainly believe in that and I'm glad that this shop upholds the same belief!

So how do you take part of Romwe's affiliate program as I did? Check after the cut to find out how ...

Chai Cosplay: Silk Spectre II (Watchmen Movie Version)

8/23/2012 09:21:00 AM Chai Chen 33 Comments

It's true as they said ... once you start cosplaying, you'll get addicted to this hobby and never stop. Yes, there might be "pauses" but you'll always be true to this hobby and continue improving your craft ...

Chai as Silk Spectre II / Laurie Jupiter
in 2009 Watchmen Movie Laurie Wallpaper

I'm dedicated to do the same and I believe I've done my part.  (^_^) I did two (2) more trial cosplay looks but never really attended a con in them yet. So as part as terminologies are concerned (especially to sensitive ones like myself, included hehe); I'd rather not call it "cosplay." Maybe closet cosplay? Hehehe. But they do deserve a separate post. I have stock photos that I haven't found time to post yet hohoh~ But definitely, I will post when I grab a chance.

For now, I bring you you my Silk Spectre II Cosplay from the movie Watchmen. I'll tell you more about the reasons why I chose this version under the cut. Her alter ego Laurie Juspeczyk is so "me" too in many ways. So both - one lady anyway, is a perfect "cosplay" for me I guess. Hurhur~

Long Weekend Sale at Comfit + FREE Canvas Bag!

8/19/2012 09:18:00 AM Chai Chen 4 Comments

Haven't had enough sale events yet? Me too! (^_^)

It's a long weekend, considering that August 20 and 21 are also declared as holidays in the Philippines. And what's the best way to spend holidays than shopping and probably a long getaway right? I choose shopping! It's my therapy ... retail therapy!



Wanna walk in comfort with Comfit shoes like me? Simple! All you gotta do is drop by the nearest Comfit store and take advantage of this LONG WEEKEND sale that they're having! For a limited time offer; get 10% OFF on any pair from August 17 - 21, 2012. Double that discount when you buy 3 pairs - get 20% OFF. That's already a lot of savings, right?

Personally, I can attest to the durability of Comfit shoes. The style definitely did not sacrifice quality. And what's surprising is; it also did not need a lot of cash. LOL. Yup, the price is just right! You can read about it in my other post. I'm definitely getting more from Comfit! So this SALE is a "must-go" event for me since there's more to it than just the discount ...

Another event! Who's excited?
Looks like it's gonna be in my calendar every month to visit sale events like this one hehehe.

ETC gathers fashionistas from blogs, top fashion brands, to online sellers for a weekend shopping spree of unique fashion finds at a fraction of the price. Get the best deals in the latest clothing trends, makeup, accessories, bags and lots of shoes; plus you’ll meet Manila’s faved fashion bloggers! 

What's exciting as well is that attendees (like myself of course) can get a chance to get spotted with our unique outfit and win exciting freebies and prizes from ETC and their sponsors! How cool is that right? Hehehe.

On the evening of the 2nd day as well, we can be part of the auction, Bids for the Kids, where we can purchase unique, new or pre-loved fashion pieces for the benefit of a Cancer Warriors Foundation

I believe this event brings in a worthy cause as well (ehem ehem, my excuse? LOL) so better give it a chance and visit!

Asprey’s NATO Straps and Blogger’s Night!

8/14/2012 09:09:00 AM Chai Chen 5 Comments

Recently Manila’s leading watchstrap brand Asprey threw in a party at Scarlet Lounge, the Fort and treated fashion industry’s young bloggers for a night of fun!

Lissa Kahayon for Asprey

Attendees were requested to bring in their old watches and trade their aged straps with new and fresher styles. Don't you think it's a fun and unique activity to do? I'd be delighted to do the same. (^_^)

If you've been a follower and a reader of this blog, you'll know that I ain't really a "watch" person ... I've been struggling on that aspect. LOL. I haven't really worn watches for long because ... I wasn't comfortable with it. Not until last year though when I figured, it could be a fun accessory too and I can mix and match them with my outfits. Since then, I've been wearing some! And more accessories!

I've also just posted recently about how we could let our timepieces define personality. Watches aren't just "time pieces" per se but an accessory that helps define your style as well. Alright ... I've been such a blabbermouth again haha! Go check out under the cut how the event went ...

Outfit Post: Flavor It Mint

8/13/2012 09:31:00 AM Chai Chen 2 Comments

Minty!
I dunno but anything green and minty appears too cool in the eyes ... and I'm cravin' for more mints recently! Yay!

Office outfit can be so much better with greens and mints! Partner it with black, it brings that classy look! Woot! (^_^)

I don't have an infinite closet but I think I do have quite a number of clothing now hehehe~ When I do check my stocks, my most common colors are normally neutrals - black & white and a few greys. It's only late 2010 I think when I started stocking on other colors. And this year; I started to get more playful with the colors in style. Normally, I'd have blues and greens and pinks but not in other shades like mint green or aqua and stuff ... as much as possible, I kept the colors plain ...

I got bored ... plus, my job needs a highly presentable look without going super outlandish ... I don't need to look like I'm going to a party all the time anyway hehehe.

Here's my business casual take on it! The color can go beyond playful ...

Let Your Timepiece Define Your Personality

8/12/2012 09:16:00 AM Chai Chen 1 Comments

Time is gold. And people care so much about time so much; that most people spend so much time choosing the timepiece that best describes their personality. While it is true that the kind of your timepiece could say a lot about you—your mood and personality—choosing the right design and color of watch strap can say a lot about you and your fine taste for watches.

Asprey Nato Leather Straps
We, Filipinos consider a timepiece not only as a necessity but also an accessorya fashion statement.

Look around and you might just discover that many people, particularly women, pair the color of their clothes with their watch or their shoes and bag with the color of their watch strap. Sounds familiar? Found yourselves guilty as well? Me too!

It’s like something has to complement another. We like to look good that even such details are carefully considered!

Good news: Asprey, the biggest and the most established watch strap distributor and retailer in the Philippines gives you a lot of options to choose from—whether you’re looking for a funky watch strap for casual days or an elegant timepiece strap to pair your lovely dress during formal gatherings.

Asprey offers a wide variety of straps that fits any kind and size of watch. Click under the cut to find out more about what I'm talking about ...

Outfit Post: Vintage Chic

8/10/2012 09:37:00 AM Chai Chen 8 Comments

Can I do a vintage look now? Hope this one can pass! (^_^)
It's been rather gloomy these past few days and it's just now that we're actually seeing "sunlight". Aahhh! That feeling again!

I've scheduled this post long ago but due to more, rather urgent news, this had to wait and now ... it'll be posted ...

Since this one went out in Mango stores, I can't help but love it! Polka dots trend is "in" again and having hearts prints instead gets much more "love" from me so I really had to get this one! Makes me think how fashion & trend was; years back.

Check out my Mango VIP Sale Experience for more MANGO madness too!
My 1st Mango VIP Sale Experience Post

The dress was a bit bigger. But this is the last piece in the smallest size that can still fit me so I already bought it, though it's loose (just at the back). Can't let go of it anymore haha!

Mango has become a fashion essential for me. They have the loveliest pieces of clothing I can't find elsewhere. It's my favorite stop for my office wear and some casual clothing too.

I've posted about Typhoon Haikui August 2012 last Tuesday; in my attempt to create awareness as well and foster help to my own country. Many bloggers have done the same and I support this campaign, overall.

It's very inspiring to see how we stand as Filipinos and smile amidst all the challenges. It's also very striking to know how the power of social media has helped us altogether in surviving this tragedy - a state of calamity.


#RescuePH
#ReliefPH

I've been retweeting and following these two (2) important hash tags indeed and it's amazing how we all helped each other as we gather news around the country. People who don't even know you are very much willing to help and have you rescued from your rooftop, and whatnots. It is true indeed; the Filipino spirit is waterproof ...

Call it "FRESH LINES!"

There will be two films uploaded on the website and will show famous “confrontational” scenes from famous Filipino movies.

Enjoy! :D

600+ Leggings Free from ROMWE!

8/06/2012 09:32:00 AM Chai Chen 2 Comments

ROMWE, the latest street fashion online, is giving away 600+ pieces of leggings for free!


Romwe.com is a fast growing retailer of women's clothes and accessories. They offer a wide selection of the latest fashionable clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories.

I've been seeing their clothes and accessories on some of my favorite fashion bloggers' posts and I must say, it has become an instant fave for me as well. I'm loving their Galaxy Leggings and the rest of the leggings collection because of their awesome digital prints! I think their style has been adapted by many (or ... well I'm not really certain if they're the "original" trend maker) but I think so far, they got all the latest styles & prints!

And since this news came in, I can't help but join! Do you want to join as well? Here's how ...

Chai Cosplay: Misa Amane (Death Note)

8/05/2012 09:06:00 AM Chai Chen 11 Comments

Before I actually launched my "first official cosplay" as Lili Rochefort (if there's really such a thing haha); I tried to squeeze in a "costrip" type ... Er ... I don't want to elaborate but I thought of just coming in costume and not really joining any competition, whatsoever. Later on, I turned out to be joining the cosplay catwalk as well. Why did I do it? For FUN! And boost my self-confidence when I actually walk the following week for my Lili Cosplay. Makes sense? Haha!

Chai as Misa Amane

Ain't it obvious that I didn't have all the proper costume for Misa? She's over-cosplayed! HAH! As the main female protagonist (or actually, antagonist) from one of the best animes of all time; of course, cosplay-enthusiasts like me would wanna cosplay her. At first I thought, it was an easy task but it turned out to be a little tasking because of her accessories. But I pulled it off quickly soooo ... poof! My first take on cosplay!

Forgive the lack of accuracy! It was way back 2008 and it was a quick spin-off! Of course, I took it to heart to improve in my future cosplays ... and I believe I did hurhurhur~ So for now, allow me to share my fixations for this character and the "costume" ...

Chai Cosplay: Lili Rochefort (Tekken)

8/03/2012 09:56:00 AM Chai Chen 8 Comments

If there are outfit posts; I'd also be posting cosplay stuff. (^_^) Guess it's just a sign how much I'm missing the events and doing cosplay with my friends. I've been missing much! (T_T)

There's this now-defunct Cosplay Resume page in my beloved cosplay homepage - http://www.cosplay.ph and my cosplay resumes need a new home. While it's great that I had a back-up for some of my costumes in my Cosplay.Com profile; I wasn't able to back-up my latest costumes last year, 2011. *sobs*

Also in Deviantart "Gamer Lili Rochefort" (with credits)

Allow me share my insights on this costume ... While some people thought I was Alodia Gosiengfiao (when I initially cosplayed this) ... sorry to burst your bubbles but naaah! I ain't Alodia. We may have similar Chinese features hehehe but she's way taller than me and wayyy sexier! LOLZ. I'm flattered but I wish to be known as me. (^_^)

Outfit Post: Can't Nobody Glam Rock By Minzi

8/01/2012 09:14:00 AM Chai Chen 22 Comments

KPOP Minzi Look?
Oh boy ... this is my first outfit post. Wahehehe. And since it's the 1st of the month, I guess this one's a treat! I will try to post more of these hehe ... I can't promise and I'm such a noob so if this doesn't pass as a "looks" post yet ... Imma try better next time. :p

Well, since I joined lookbook to share my fashion inspirations and mostly outfits at work and beyond, I never blogged specifically about my outfit. Some of the lookbook "looks" I posted; I embed them on some posts when they're related but this is the first time I'm posting one that's concentrated on a particular outfit. Hohoho~ I dunno ... Maybe a failure! LOLZ. But imma try ...

This post is for one of my recent looks post: http://lookbook.nu/look/3718053-Can-t-Nobody-Glam-Rock-By-Minzi And no doubt, the look is inspired by one of the KPOP Girl Group's team member Minzi, from 2NE1.

Some may disagree but; well, she's where I got my inspiration from (^_^) It's one of the looks that Minzi had in 2NE1's music video entitled Can't Nobody. It's also one of my favorite songs from the group. In fact, me and my sis have spoofed hehehe. If you're following my blog, you'll see I also posted that video in one of my older posts about tVN's KPOP Star Hunt!

Okay enough of my blabber and on to my look! Teehee! Sometimes, I'm really such a blabbermouth hahaha! Very talkative and can go rounds and rounds with any topic ... so let's get back to business ... about the look! (^_^)
