Just a few more days ’til H&M opens its first store here in Manila.

I’ve honestly never been this excited about a store opening until now. First time I ever visited H&M was when I went to Hongkong with my mom and friends. Anyhow, H&M’s having a VIP launch party and the golden tickets to the event have been handed out to the chosen few.

Photo grabbed from blogger, Jackie Go’s Instagram. She’s one of the invited few! I love this lady’s OOTD posts! So wanted to be part of the roster so much that I even joined their OOTD contest. The 10 winners get to go to the party and will get the VIP treatment package:

  • styling by hair and fashion experts for the night
  • overnight hotel accommodation
  • exclusive after party
Best of all:
  • Gift card shopping worth Php10,000!

I didn’t win (oh well, you win some, you lose some!) but still, it was fun to dress up and do those OOTD shoots. Actually, I’ve started to make a more conscious effort to dress for success and I thought I’d document it through photos and blog more about it.

My OOTD Entries for H&M in Manila Opening

Outfit details:

Blazer from The Ramp, tube dress from Zara, wedge shoes from Nine West and necklace from The Landmark.

I’m a bit sad to see that necklace. It’s the one and only photo I have of it before it broke the same day a few hours later. Never got to recover those pearls since it happened inside a crowded MRT. Guess the string wasn’t strong enough to hold those heavy pearls.

Outfit details:

Dress from Zalora, shoes from Nine West, necklace from Avon. Am such a fan of Avon accessories.

I have quite a number of earrings, necklaces and rings bought from Avon.

Outfit details:
Dress from Dorothy Perkins, shoes from Schu

I love, love, love Schu shoes! They have such wonderful shoe styles there!
H&M is opening this October 17 at 9:00 am at the Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall. The store’s giving out so much to those who’ll be attending the store opening from gift certificates to food and drinks from Seattle’s Best Coffee and Cinnabon. Plus they’re offering 40% to 50% discounts on their opening day! It’s a work day but my office is near the area. I’m thinking of going just because I love H&M. Hmm…do I dare and brave the crowd?
