White Out

Here's an outfit that's casual enough for the day but chic and smart enough to wear to a special event or date. I've always searched for the best way to describe what is meant by "smart casual attire" that people like to put on invites. But, yes, this one I would totally wear to such an event or occasion. I wore it in a recent date with Nicco and he couldn't stop complimenting me. It's one of those outfits that's pretty and sexy without showing much skin. I'm sure your special someone would love it, too.

I love this lightweight but intricately detailed dress from SOMETHING BORROWED, which features the cold-shoulder trend that I've been loving lately. That it happens to be white is also not a common choice for me as I'm usually more partial to black or dark colors in general. 

Not quite as new is my choice of the color red as the great equalizer! It just always elevates any look several notches, don't you agree? This CHANEL purse and M&G peeptoe heels from ZALORA are my go to accessories whenever I'm in need of that pop of color and gold accessories give that final touch of elegance.

Cheers To More Years

The month of July is a very special month for me and Girl About Town. On this month, we celebrate two important occasions that are linked and intertwined in more ways than one! First, Nicco and I celebrate our anniversary on July 9 (it's our 4th!). It was the day after we celebrated our very first that Girl About Town was born - in fact, my first blog post happens to be all about how the celebration went. Click HERE to read that post.

If you read that post, and have been following our journey since then, you'd see how Girl About Town has evolved from a personal blog to the fashion and lifestyle blog that it is today. I love that marking Girl About Town's third year is just as significant to Nicco since he is has played a huge role in its success being its official photographer.

I love that every year, we get to celebrate two important milestones. So, every year, when this month comes around we make sure we celebrate in style, and naturally, the twin milestones are documented right here
in Girl About Town.

This year, we went to the Champagne Room at the Manila Hotel. We had considered going to the Tasting Room in the City of Dreams and Mecha Uma in Bonifacio Global City. In the end, we decided for the classic, old world charm of the Champagne Room of the Manila Hotel. And as the photos below would show, we could not have made a better choice. The romantic ambience, the impeccable service, and the food -yes, the food! - will make you fall in love all over again and again and again.

Nicco, being the chef that he is, and the food lovers we both are, we were more than excited to check out their seven-cpurse degustation menu, the highlights of which were:
Thank you Champagne Room for a lovely evening! :) 

Thank you for being a huge part of Girl About Town! <3

Just a quick post on today's black and white casual attire featuring one of my favorite top trends ever - the cold shoulder top. This little number from CALYX PRET-A-PORTER has dainty spaghetti straps you tie into ribbons on your shoulders. I love that it's made of soft material that clings in the most flattering way. And, most of all, I love that you can dress it up or down like I did here with my black jeans from FOREVER 21 and black scrappy wedges from CALL IT SPRING.
