suiteblanco sm makati opens + 20% off sale today!

I can't believe it's only been a year since the first Suiteblanco boutique opened in SM Aura! I look so different but my style is still pretty much the same (if not a little bit more toned down). I've matured quite a bit within that short span of time and my fashion sense has turned practical. I prefer a no-fuss look with classic pieces that I can rotate over and over again.

I was extremely pleased to discover that Suiteblanco has taken on the same philosophy as well during the opening of their SM Makati branch a few days ago:

The event was hosted by Kim Jones who was decked out from head to toe in a super cute outfit featuring pieces from the current collection...
(I later saw tons of people buy the same outfit during the shopping party that ensued soon after the fashion show :P)

And like I was saying earlier, the new Suiteblanco store is packed with tons of versatile pieces that you can wear for work or play.

I extremely enjoyed this year's fashion show because unlike others I've witnessed in the past, this one was specially styled and entirely curated by the genius editors and style savants at Preview.

When these ladies strut their stuff, it's time to take notes because they definitely know what they're talking about.

Check out the looks they came up with:

Yup, mostly black and white, efficient choices, minimal to zero accessorizing with a few neutrals thrown in for good measure. No nonsense + fuss free. Sounds familiar? (:P) The modern ladies of today have no time for frivolity.

The show was quick and memorable, just the way I like it.

Also because I couldn't wait to flex my shopping muscles (with my favorite girls) already:

It was pretty difficult narrowing down my choices because BASICS. 

Not just run off the mill basics but a large number of fashionable pieces that were all given the special Suiteblanco treatment with an air of je na sais qua making them all the more irresistible. 

These were a combination of exquisitely made bags in fine leather at very affordable prices, neutral sweaters with embossed designs, classically-cut outerwear and the softest and most flattering distressed jeans in every shape you can imagine.
