Get the most out of your "holiday earnings" by knowing where and what to spend on.
Why part with P2000 on a turtleneck when you can get an equally cute one for just P600?
Read more for pics, shopping and fit tips + a virtual peek at Promod's ongoing end of season sale!
Unlike other sales where just a few items are on markdown, I noticed that almost 90% of the stuff on display are on sale...usually around 30-50% off.
That roughly saves you around P500-P1000+ per item depending on SRP.
These are the turtlenecks I was talking about earlier which have become a daily uniform for me. I got them in every color...that's what I do when I find something basic that fits well.
I've been on the hunt for a good turtleneck but couldn't find any that suit my frame well until these.
MY CRITERIA FOR THE PERFECT TURTLENECK:
- Lightweight material. It's warm enough as it is so cotton pls!
- Nothing to tight or loose. I wanted something that just skims the body for a slimming effect.
- Neutral. Easily dressed up with a pretty pleated skirt or down with jeans and sneakers.
Priced at just P695 each, these totally meet all my requirements. A MUST HAVE! Hoard if you can.

DIVIDE AND CONQUER
Pointers on how to effectively shop a sale as big as this so you don't go home with regrets....
- Wear comfortable clothes that you can easily slip on and off. Same goes for shoes. A slip dress and flats work well.
- Survey the store once.
- Do it by rack so you don't get overwhelmed by choices.
- Grab all in one go and fit at the same time.
- Take mirror selfies so you can assess which ones look best on you later on.
- Ask your sales attendant for help, they're very accommodating here.
- If you fall in love with something but don't have it in your size, ask to call another branch.
- SIZE isn't everything. Even if I'm a small, some styles look better on me when I go up a size or 2 so don't be afraid to experiment.
|Remember the JEANS here? They're now on sale! My favorites are the dark wash flares and boyfriend. They fit so well. If you're looking for some new pairs, make sure to check these out.|

INTO THE FITTING ROOM...
I usually head to the fitting room with 20 or so pieces confident that only a few are gonna look good on me and I won't end up with such a big bill.
This time around....
Despite my bulging "assets" lately...
I found quite a bit too many that conceal and flatter in all the right places.
My favorite find of all are these faux leather pants. I used to love wearing these some years back but my old pair broke and I have been searching hi and low for another that fits nicely and here they are. No alterations needed. BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD. Hahaha

I LOVE LEATHER PANTS BECAUSE THEY MAKE EVERYTHING LOOK BETTER AND DRESSIER WITHOUT ANY EFFORT.

Another thing I love shopping for in Promod are button downs. They always have really nice ones.
And what I previously said about size...
The one I'm wearing below is a medium - not a small. I liked the fit better.

Same goes for this sweater. This one's a LARGE. It looks way better on me than the small.

This vintage inspired velvet top reminded me of something I used to own in the 90s.

So those are my top picks/haul. Total damage: P6500.00
Not bad, right? For a new wardrobe?
