I RECOMMEND (SHOP) : Sending some fashion love to French Brand Camaeiu

The French are known for their fashion…and now- I can enjoy French fashion, too!

More anyway.

Two of France’s high-street brands Promod and Camaeiu have become highly present in Philippine malls.
Promod has been present a couple of years already (FAN. LOVE IT).

What I really want to talk about is Camaeiu.

There prices are quite affordable actually, but it’s shopping heaven if you happen to catch them on sale.
It so happens that they now have a mid-season year, so hurrah!

Things I love about the brand ❤

1.) Wearability: As much as I love looking at designers’ instragrams and fashion magazines, when I buy my clothes
I value wearability and comfort over trendiness. Of course, I try to have both.

2.) Cotton Comfort: I love shops that sell items made from cotton. I have verrrrrry sensitive skin so  I try to wear clothes with cotton fabric as much as possible. I love their harem pants.

3.  Staples: Staples like while polo shirts, stripped three forts t-shirts, dark plain denims are present. I hate it when a shop has all these fancy designs but doesn’t include basic necessities in their regular product line.

4. Accessores!: Though not a lot, they do have a cute selection of accessories. Always a plus! Smile


Note: the designs in the pictures I posted aren’t necessarily available in the Philippine stores.

Vero Moda (…and other fashion related things)

I have had a love affair with fashion since I was nine years old. I vividly remember that at that age, I would put together my outfit and appreciatively view it in the mirror before leaving the house.

This love affair with fashion gave birth to another love- window shopping. I love looking at store displays. I also love going around stores and looking for good finds and unique pieces.

Lately, international brands have been coming to the Philippines like clockwork. First it was Mango and Zara, which excited many fashionistas. Now, however, when I go to mall, I am welcomed by Forver 21, Aldo, UNIQLO, Cotton On, Stradivarius, Promod, Bershka, Top Shop, Suite Blanco, River Island. Soon, H&M will be opening. Woohoo!

On my last trip to Mega Mall (it’s one of the biggest malls in the Philippines), I came across a brand that I wasn’t very familiar with. Forever21, obviously is widely popular around the world so when its opening was announced, more or less, I knew what to expect. The name of the brand is Vero Moda (www.veromoda.com). Being the curious fashion person that I was, I immediately googled it. It turns out that it is a Danish brand. Their style comes across as something in between boho chic and edgy.

It’s always very exciting for me to discover anything new in fashion- new trends, new brands and new designers. No matter how serious, intelligent and successful a woman is, I think a part of her heart and mind will be drawn to fashion (some more than others).


So….any fab fashion finds lately? Feel free to share.
