Come Out and Play!

With the city crowd raring to hit the sun and surf given the summer heat, I thought it wise to present you with a fun and very "now" beach cover up - THE PLAYSUIT!

Cupidon playsuit by Ba&sh

Actually, I found the best summer playsuit right here in Manila! Its a really fun blue and gray halter neck playsuit from Grab, and its available at Chocolate Clothing. Its made of a velour-ish bordering on terry cloth-ish type of material but it will look great worn over a bikini I promise! Its about Php2,000 and it just looks so playful and sexy! Now if only I had spare cash lying around, then that would have been MINE! But priorities (i.e. savings) come first!!!

Now if you want to look more sophisticated, then tunics will rule your world!



But if "Glam" is your middle name, then go for these long fluid dresses that Uli Herzner presented for the season finale of Project Runway 3. This girl just knows how to DO resort wear!

Hi Becky Boop! I haven't been going around the malls lately, but I remember seeing a lot of tunics at the Greenhills tiangge (you can choose from the imported ones from Bangkok, export overruns, and labels like Hot Kisses and Meg). My friends got theirs in Nullah, Mango, and local chains like Plains & Prints and Bayo.

If you happen to go to a bazaar selling Indian items, that would be the best place to get authentic kurtas in the lightest cotton! Perfect for summer!

In case I see nice tunics around, I will keep you posted! =)

Love those resortwear!! Reminds me of the Nicole Miller dress Angelina Jolie was wearing... Why can't we have more of them here...? :(

cd said...

Hi Ruby! Is that the scarf dress? That was really nice! Glam yet down to earth somehow...

Ruby Gan said...

yes, the famous scarf dress!!! when you see one, let me know... the ones available in rustan do not appeal to me... colors are blah...

cd said...

Sure Ruby! When I see a nice scarf dress I will update you asap!!! Actually, long dresses made of cotton or jersey are perfect for travelling din! Remember the dress Uli made for jetsetting, the one she wore to Paris in Project Runway? I luuuvvvv that! =)

hi there! I just have to say I love playsuits... brings me back to my childhood!!! I had a fave one that was terry cloth and if my mom would let me I'd wear it everyday!!! :) I've been wondering where I could get one for me ... now that I'm "not 5" anymore! :) Thanks for the post! :)
