Le Bunny Bleu: Nifty Neon + Lettering 101 Workshop

Posted on Tuesday, 24 June 2014

Summer sandals need not be boring or height-compromising! While I was thisclose to getting yet another pair of oxfords during my recent visit to Le Bunny Bleu, this bright green pair called out to me way too much that I had to get it ASAP. I have a shortage of green-colored footwear, let alone bright neon open-toe sandals that have a bit of heel on them, so this was just what my shoe collection needed. Wouldn’t hurt to go out of my comfort zone once in a while!

Speaking of comfort zones, I’m sure all of you can relate to me when I say that my life has become so digital - it’s starting to get disconcerting! Instead of manually taking down notes, it’s faster and easier to just take pictures. When I was younger (way before I got into photography), I was one of those kids in school who was always tasked with decorating the blackboard, etc. It seems like I unlearned everything as I grew older and shifted interests! Didn’t think it was even possible. However, I still have a small glimmer of hope that I can revive that non-computer-dependent side of myself that has been on hiatus these past few years.

Good thing Le Bunny Bleu is holding a basic lettering workshop this Saturday! 

This is only the first of Le Bunny Bleu’s series of our Crafts Workshops. Super exciting, right? Since Le Bunny Bleu is a romantic vintage brand with old Euro world charm combined with New York modernism, they will be holding workshops (for free!) for their dear customers to celebrate this aesthetic. Their first Lettering 101 workshop will be perfect for beginners who want to know how to do simple lettering and calligraphy. Entrance is absolutely free as well, so there’s absolutely no excuse not to go!

It’s going to be at Le Bunny Bleu’s Shangri-la store on June 28 (Saturday) 10:30am – 12:00pm. The workshop will be conducted by the great Abbey Sy! I might go (probably with Crissey if she’s free) so we’ll see you there, yes?

Participants simply need to wear their own Le Bunny Bleu shoes on the day of the workshop and reserve slots ahead of time at any Le Bunny Bleu store. Slots are limited so please inform them as soon as you can. Once you reserve a slot. they will brief you about what to bring. What’s more fun is that they will also be giving away special gifts to the participants!

Le Bunny Bleu Philippines can be found at 5th Floor Shangri-la Plaza 654-2599 and 2nd Floor Glorietta 5 955-7225. You can also RSVP via mchan@quirksph.com

In the meantime, you can follow Le Bunny Bleu on FacebookInstagram and Twitter

RANDA

Posted on Friday, 30 May 2014

Someone found her way to the RANDA store in Shinjuku again! I swear, I always have to pass by this store every time I’m in Tokyo. They have the best shoes!

Maho-san from RANDA allowed me to take photos once more, as well as share their newest summer shoes, in case anyone is going to Japan in the next few months! She also prepared some gifts for me! Happy <3 I went straight from the airport!

With the nicest shop staff! 

Trying on RANDA’s present for me! I don’t have ankle-strap wedges yet and I’m glad my first pair is from RANDA!

I wore these shoes to dazzlin touchMe Collection 2 days after I arrived from Tokyo, and I didn’t have to break them in? They were so comfy already!

I also got the white and tan ankle straps on the right! Lovely details.

The Hello Kitty x RANDA collection is still in stores! 

Black heels and the signature Hello Kitty ribbon.

Black and white summer wedges with the cutest Hello Kitty design!

For all the Hello Kitty fanatics out there…

Subtle Hello Kitty for those who prefer more simple shoes.

Ankle straps are everywhere in Tokyo now that it’s transitioning from spring to summer.

Out with the winter boots. In with all kinds of summer sandals.

They also got these flats with embellishments for a change. Perfect for a beach weekend getaway.

These would look great with denim!

Choose your beach footwear.

I love these so much! I regret not buying the yellow and white pair!

Strappy heels in bright orange.

Pastel blue and yellow, and the cutest cross straps.

Color blocking.

More ankle straps and color blocking.

I have the black one and I wear it constantly! 

MODE style shoes. The white ones are especially popular this season!

Summer espadrilles.

These are perfect! Too bad the white one didn’t come in my size anymore. 

They still got some of their signature edgy designs, but in pastel colors for spring/summer.

Shoe paradise! Every girl’s dream!

RANDA by fashionvibe! World-famous blogger Zina Charkoplia collaborated with them for their S/S 2014 collection, and the result was this super chic ankle strap design that I wish came in my size! These sold out so fast, and I could totally understand why.

Fortunately for us who don’t live in Japan, RANDA opened its global webstore that can ship to over 120 countries. YES, the Philippines is included. You just need to have PayPal!

Le Bunny Bleu: Dazzling Dream (+ F/W Collection Sale)

Ultra cute and sparkly Christmas flats? Count me in! More often than not, I’d rather accessorize with sewn-in bling rather than pile a ton of accessories on top of each other. I always try my best to look as chic as possible using the least number of items. Seems like age has really turned me into a practical dresser!

I opted for Le Bunny Bleu’s Sina flats to a whole day of errands and meetings, and to a night out with Rg as we celebrated our 3rd anniversary together! The lack of heels make it casual enough for daytime use, while the presence of embellishments make it dressy enough for a date. If you’re looking for the perfect sophisticute (sophisticated and cute) pair of flats for everyday use, this is it! It also comes in brown/beige if you prefer something lighter that can also suit your spring/summer wardrobe.

There is an on-going sale for those who want first dibs on stocks and sizes (best to go today before people go crazy), but starting tomorrow, January 27, the entire fall/winter collection (examples here) will be 50% off!

This includes all their flats (including the ones I’m wearing here), sneakers, and boots. Time to stock up on these romantic vintage shoes that many K-pop stars love (examples here)! Totally eyeing the Viola loafers, thanks to a photo of a Crayon Pop member wearing them, so I’ll definitely drop by the store during the sale! See you there!

Visit them at 5th floor Bridgeway, East Wing Shangri-la Plaza (654-2599) and 2nd floor Glorietta 5 (955-7225).

PUMA x Mihara Yasuhiro

Posted on Wednesday, 17 April 2013

Given enough time to reflect, I can probably enumerate all my life instances when I felt like I was doing something right. One of them is being directly contacted by a brand’s international PR team. This time, I got a message from PUMA, straight from Boston, wanting to send me their MY-66 sneaker wedges designed in a collaboration with Mihara Yasuhiro. I was asked to choose from black/pink, and white/gray. And of course I chose the one that I feel like will match the rest of my wardrobe. My week is made!

Mihara Yasuhiro, if the name doesn’t ring a bell, is a well-known Japanese designer known for his shoe work. While he also has his own clothing label in Tokyo, his collaboration with PUMA Black Label put him in a whole other level. If you’re curious about his other designs, try to search for images on Google and I’m sure all you sneaker freaks will want to own one of his designs too! (Count on me, of all people, to be biased about all things Japanese, lol.)

Currently, I have about 4 pairs of sneaker wedges, thanks to that fashion-meets-function element that they have. The trend doesn’t seem to be going away soon, but regardless of what’s in or not, this pair would have to be my favorite! Not only is it my first non-black pair, but I am so in love with the design! Looks like a work of art. The 3.5 inch heels add so much more height too, compared to most sneaker wedges. And not to mention, this design is quite slim and sexy, and is definitely perfect for those who aren’t huge fans of too-chunky footwear. In love!

Thinking if I should bring this to my trip to Kyoto and Osaka in a few days since I’ll be doing a lot of walking. Of course, me being me, I’d want to do it in style!

Flats Fever

Posted on Monday, 9 April 2012

Long overdue entry on some of the flat shoes that I use. Contrary to popular belief, I also rest my feet from heels from time to time, especially when I travel or have photography work.
