Fashion Snapshot #3: Sundrench’s De Classique Collection


I have yet to meet a lady who isn’t smitten or doesn’t fancy semiprecious stones especially when it comes to accessories as necklaces, earrings, or bracelets. Whether it’s a turquoise, a rose quartz, a coral or an onyx, I’m sure there is one (or many) of those stones she would love.

That is why ladies would love the newest accessory collection, “De Classique”, recently launched by Sundrench.

It features a classic and timeless design for necklaces and earrings. The style can be worn for casual daily or formal use.  As far as the Sundrenched girls are concerned, this is one of those fashion accessories that never goes away.

Fashion Snapshot #2: Wedges and Sandals

fashionsnapshotSummer is almost over for us (or was it over already since typhoons started early?)… but anyway, I still have this urge to do this since I’m such a fan of wedges and sandals…

All I can do is drool over them online since I couldn’t find them locally… nor could I find a close one that is good enough (or  priced reasonably enough).

Hubby and my sisters would tease me to be like Imelda Marcos when I was younger (and still single) since I had a great fetish for shoes and I did have a lot of them. Not anymore though. Now I love to window shop and only on rare occasions, do I give in to the temptation and treat myself.  For these past few years though, hubby is the one buying me shoes at Charles & Keith whenever he travels to Singapore (since it’s usually cheaper there especially during sale season).

Wedges and Sandals from Piperlime

Most of the shoes in the photo are my “typical” favorites. I guess most of these are the styles that is so “me”.  I prefer to wear these kind of sandals or wedges when I go out in casual wear. I’m not the flipflop type,  the sneaker type, nor the kitty-heel type or whatever other type is out there.

The wedges and sandals above are all available online at Piperlime.

Fashion Snapshot #1: Asian Finds

fashionsnapshotI don’t consider myself a “fashionista” but I do appreciate and love certain fashion novelties.  There are a few fashion brands, items and shops where I really love their stuff!

And so I just thought of doing this “Fashion Snapshot” segment in my blog where I feature some items I bought or found or would love to have…  and of course, the shops whose merchandise I love!

Most women, if not all, love jewelries and accessories. I have yet to meet one who doesn’t.

From our online accessories business, I have known quite a number of ladies who collects jewelries, real or faux. Some love to collect those unique or one-of-a-kind, others love those vintage-styled, some like those made from sterling silver, and for those more financially blessed, they go for the real deal.

The photo above shows a (synthetic) turquoise earrings and pendant set in 92.5% silver with very small gemstones. It was a present from my parents during my recent birthday.

Well, I was actually the one who chose this. They asked me to come with them to Alabang last Friday, and had me choose what I liked from Asian Finds (they were on sale from Feb. 9 to 15). I especially love the detail on the pendant (and even the backside of it).

I love their earrings, pendants and bracelets with semiprecious stones or synthetic stones set in sterling silver. I especially love and prefer those made with Turquoise and Black Onyx, even though my birthstone is Amethyst.

If you’re not familiar with Asian Finds, it is a small shop at the Upper Ground Floor of Alabang Town Center selling mainly jewelries and a few other accessories. Very nice jewelries I should say. Most of their jewelries are priced from Php1,000 up. A bit pricey for some, but I guess price is relative.

You’d be surprised how fast most of their items get sold. That’s why as my sister would put it, “if you find something you love, better buy it immediately… If you think about it for a few days (even just for one day or sometimes even just hours) before buying, chances are when you go back, it’s already sold.” And it has been true!

Asian Finds also offers lifetime free cleaning. 🙂
