A showroom for me to try whatever clothes and accessories I want? Don’t mind if I do! This week, Jenny Dayco, Filipina jewelry designer, paired with the Penthouse Showroom to host a bloggers event where fashion bloggers can dress up in anything they wish in this huge closet and take pictures. It’s a chance for people to try on what they normally won’t without the pressure to purchase anything. You know that feeling: you want to try something that you know you probably won’t buy but you’re curious to see how it looks on you, yet you can’t think of a good excuse to tell the sales you don’t want it or at least you feel bad for doing so. So here I am faced with all these clothing and jewelry ready to experiment with different looks! Click ‘read more’ to see the outfits.
The showroom has a descent amount of variety to keep you occupied for a few hours. (I think I spent around three.) There’s the T-shirt and jeans section, then there’s the multi-way wraps and the casual dresses. For accessories they had subtle, more delicate pieces to feather jewelry to statement pieces. However, they didn’t have any shoes, which was a bummer. Because I am petite though, my choices were more limited, since most of the clothes they carry are sizes S or M and I usually wear an XXS or XS. Fit was a bit of an issue, but I still managed to find some pieces and had a lot of fun.
I’m not really a girl for color when it comes to my clothes, especially orange. But since orange is the spring color, I thought, why not? Unfortunately, the dress is too long for me, which is why the picture is taken sitting. I can’t really decide if I match orange; your thoughts?
When I see maxi dresses, I just look away and find something else. I’m 5’1; maxi dresses are bound to be too long for me, and even if they fit, they’ll probably make me look even shorter than I already look. Seems like I was wrong because this dress is banded at the waist which allows me to adjust the length and I actually like the way it looks on me. I even found earrings to match the detailing on the front of the dress.
I wanted to do a two-piece outfit to change it up, so I found myself a turquoise top and navy skirt.
Then I found this intense necklace and I knew I had to find something simple for my outfit, so here’s a basic black dress to match the gold necklace, which I ended up borrowing to attend a fashion show later that night since I know the jewelry designer personally.
And before I leave, of course I have to put on the craziest outfit they have there. It makes me look like a poufball!
