What I Wore Today: Fia Manilla
I have this awkward face when posing for photographs that I must learn to get rid off!
Anyway, it's not about the face so just don't mind it. I, however, on the other hand, can't help but. (ugh!)

Remember my post a few days ago when I thanked Fia Manilla for that big pouch of clothes they sent me? Here's a couple of them. The kimono type topper and the brocade pencil skirt is available in their current collection.
These days, it is so easy to just turn on the computer, log into Facebook or Multiply and go shopping. I myself (obviously) am a big fan of online shopping. I shop a lot online so it's no surprise that there are times when I get disappointed about the quality of the clothes when they arrive at my house. Often times, the photos look amazingly pretty but once you receive them, it's either the color is off, the clothes are either ill-fitting or badly tailored. You really can't blame the seller either since you know off-hand that at the prices they're being sold, they are most probably mass-produced, disposable fashion, which is okay when it comes to trendy pieces. But when it comes to classic clothing that'll last you years and not just seasons, I think it is wise to invest a couple more hundred for something well made. And that is the case with Fia Manilla.
I was surprised at the quality and tailoring of the clothes when they first arrived. I've gotten quite used to the "tiangge" quality of clothes that I've learned to accept them as the norm. Thank you Fia for reminding me that I deserve more and that I should get more for my money.
Suffice to say, I am really excited about Fia Manilla's upcoming collection.
and don't forget, Ms Eggplant's Chronicles and Fia Manilla are giving you the chance to win P3000 worth of GC's so you can shop to your heart's content!
