If there are two fashion guilty pleasures that I have – that would be shoes and bags. Shameful confession: most of the time, before I look to the face, I look to the shoes first! Well, anyway. HAHA! Enough of that.
Two days before the launch of the biggest sale (as far as I’m concerned) I’ve ever heard, Manels invited bloggers to see their latest collections and, of course, to go shopping!!! ALL ITEMS, 50% OFF! Zeh bloggers just went wild!
Bloggers just went giddy!
Ooops, dark. Sarreh Melai!
Camwhore-all-you-can! You go shoot that photo, Aisa!
Early (not angry) birds: Aisa, Reg, Honey, Krissy, and Ana
Gah, so many choices! WHICH TO BUY THOUGH?
Maphisto: Men’s shoes. I actually find it marginalizing (very serious, lol) that most boutiques have only A CORNER for men. We are capable of dressing up people, so pimp that corner up! Just saying…
I love the wingtip and perforations, but I really don’t need it.
These look comfy like bathroom slippers.
I’ve been searching for a tote bag…
When you’re at Manels, try to smell the leather. It’s so addicting.
I have a pair that looks like these, but I think aren’t as sturdy as these topsiders.
I got the fourth, beige one.
Mr. Mark Siggaoat, VP for Operations of Manels leathergoods. He’s very accommodating. Thank you Sir!
Now some treat for the girls. Manels has a wide selection of women’s shoes.
This snow leopard print tote can stand out in any crowd.
Studded leather oxfords. For some remixed hipster chic outfit.
You know what they say…
“The higher the heels…”
“…the closer to God!”
They also feature some other leather items like…
Very classy wallets
Here are some of the bloggers I met in the event:
Photographer Frank Ruaya
Honey Andrade of Somnium et Vita. Fellow nurse-blogger. Hello there, Honey!
Sarah Tirona of Fashion Eggplant. I was surprised to know her age, she looks so young! And so stylish too!
Reg Rodriguez of Hey Rocket Girl! Her maxi dress really caught my eye.
Krissy of Krissyfied.
Manels staff, who are equally accommodating as their boss!
Thank you and happy anniversary, Manels for a wonderful shopping experience! And I wish I can remember all the bloggers’ names! There goes me again.
The Manels BIG Sale, 50% off on all items, including new arrivals, also on all branches, runs from July 13 – 17 only.
