Almost a week ago, I got an invite thru email to Zalora Philippines‘ Grand Launch at Skye Lounge, Bonifacio Global City. I had second thoughts about going but at the same time I was really excited because it was the first event I was invited to as a blogger. Thanks Nuffnang for the invite! 🙂

My boyfriend and I had late lunch at Kangaroo Jack at SM North Edsa and went straight to the venue. I didn’t get a chance to do my makeup before going to the event so I just retouched my day makeup to make it appropriate for the event. Good thing I had my Sleek palette with me. 🙂
This was the setup of their stage.
Michael kept doing test shots on me.
I find dark clothes, like this blouse I’m wearing, easier to wear. And the orange necklace from Fabshopaholic gave my outfit the pop of color it needs.
Open bar. YEAAAH!
The waiters kept serving me that pink cocktail drink called Skye Special. If my taste buds serve me right, I think it was vodka, a bit of strawberry mix and jelly? IDK. But I had like 5 shots of that. :))
I was stalking this girl because I wanted to take a picture of her really cute pink heels. I want it so badly!
At around 9pm, the venue was packed with so many gorgeous people. It was the hottest crowd I’ve ever seen (except ofcourse for the backstage of Philippine Fashion Week LOL!). I kept looking left and right, admiring their trendy clothes, weird hairstyles and nicely done makeups. Zalora’s Grand Launch was not just any blogging event, it was the social event of the month.
The fashion show didn’t even last for 20 minutes. Why? It’s not your typical fashion show. The models only wore plain white garments while the clothes from the online shop was being projected on the screen to make it look like they were wearing it. Cool concept, huh?
The only pitfall of that concept? This.
The model was not completely aware of the image being projected.
All in all, it was one hell of a party. :))

Few more shots for the road? 🙂
Live band to keep the party going.
And yes, before going home, I had to take one more picture. LOL!
Zalora Philippines, thank you for an awesome party! 🙂
