Last October 5 was the official launch of Apartment 8. They finally got to do this after years being in the industry, and I couldn’t be happier for the team behind this wonderful brand. What I love most about them is that they offer a wide assortment of affordable, high-quality clothes that can fit different personal styles. I believe in their products so much that I agreed to be one of the brand ambassadors, along with Camille and Patricia. The 3 of us got to represent the 3 roommates of Apartment 8 - Blair, Paris and Katy. This concept got me sold! It’s so incredibly fresh, don’t you think?
Click on the names to view each collection:
Blair: "Sophisticated, clean, classy. Whoever said that sophistication and sass don’t mix clearly hasn’t met Blair. With her classic, polished look, she proves that a girl with good taste can have a real good time. All the gossip about this girl is true; she puts the fine in refined."
Paris: "Nobody knows how to live it up quite like Paris. This sexy girl sure can work a room and demand attention when she wants it. Constantly clad in pieces that stand out like her personality, Paris is certainly where the party’s at."
Katy: "Katy is the epitome of fun. Her bubbly personality translates to her wardrobe, which often consists of pops of color and prints that make you do a double take. She is edgy. She is spontaneity. She’s the perfect mix of young, wild, and free."

Not inspired to splurge on all their pretty clothes yet? Here are a few photos that me and my boyfriend took during the launch at Blue Leaf Events Pavillon at McKinley Hill. They also got other blogger ambassadors like Lissa, Vern, Verniece, JL and Domz to walk down the runway dressed in special Apartment 8 pieces.
Dressing room with Lissa and Camille after we had our make-up done. Different hair and lip colors!
I almost never attend events as much as them so I rarely get to bond with bloggers outside work, but when I do, it’s always such a pleasant time. Good, positive vibes!
One of my muses, Tori, modeled for the fashion show. She is one of the best, most professional models I have ever known, and everyone (including me) should take a cue from her because she is so professional (and always on time, if not earlier than everybody else). It’s only a matter of time before she becomes big! <3
Ais Liao, who does the make-up for some of the shoots I photographed in the past. It was such a new feeling when I was the one sitting on her make-up chair as a model this time.
Camille while having her make-up done. Silver smoky eyes with bright pink lips - a show-stopping combination very fitting for Paris.
Pretty Patricia fully made-up. Super love this lip color on her!
Chow Resurreccion, my brain twin, and the amazing designer behind all the Blair collections and this intricate flapper dress that I’m wearing.
Ernest’s jacket. He is the designer behind all the Paris collections!
Lissa having her make-up done. Girl has the most flawless skin ever!
Pictures from the fashion show:
Patricia modeling Josh Buenaflor’s design for Katy. Too bad I don’t have a proper picture in my camera, but it was such an interesting design.
Never mind that I am the most awkward person on stage and I have the worst posture ever! Congratulations to the Apartment 8 team for this opportunity. You finally did it! I can’t wait for other people to enjoy your designs as much as we did.
Thank you most especially to the lovely lady behind all this. Sheira, you are sorely loved! <3
Dresses such as this one have to be in every girl’s closet! This particular LBD is a definite favorite as the loose silhouette and the simple bottom detail are so me (and so Blair). Paired with my darker hair color and matte red lipstick, it could easily pass off as something inspired by the 20s, maybe?
I love how it’s both sophisticated and cute, and very, very versatile. I mean, you could pair it with some ballet flats and a big lazy hair bun on a casual day and it could still work. Pair it with combat boots or booties and a layered cross necklace and you could totally get the whole goth chick look down pat.
The accessories for this particular outfit made all the difference in the world. While I would normally wear my favorite pearls with this one, I decided to go bolder with some emerald green, gold and maroon accents on my jewelry, as well with some killer studs on my clutch.
I don’t know if you can see it clearly in these photos, but I was in such a matchy-matchy mood that I even wore green-ish circle lenses to match my earrings!
