House of Vanita fashion show

My event: October 2, 2010

19th floor Citibank Center
Paseo de Roxas
Makati City

I got the lingerie below from House of Vanita last Friday. Thanks to Agnes who was very accommodating. Their sizes are a bit smaller as compared to Maidenform. I think you can compare their sizes with Wacoal. My choices are not that adventurous. I am more timid and I usually want just the basic colors like nude, white and black. Good thing, House of Vanita has a wide range of lingerie that fits different types of people. 

 Chiarra bra PhP1, 600 and Simonetta brief PhP450

I chose Chiarra bra because it's padded and the design is simple enough that can be used as a t- shirt bra but the lace on the sides and back gave it an added oomph to an otherwise simple design! Lace gives me an irritating feel though. I just found out after I have road tested and worn it once a few days ago. I hope after a few washes I can get used to the lace feel. 

The Simonetta brief fits perfectly. I picked up the right size. As with any other undergarments, briefs were not allowed to try on for hygienic purposes. 

So, the following is the rest of the story about the event.

A few months ago, I got an email inviting me to model for an Italian lingerie company, House of Vanita. Ok, just relax, don't panic, I don't have the guts and the body to sashay on the catwalk. DH had the weirdest laugh when I shared with him the email ha-ha-ha

I attended the event, alright, not as a model but as a spectator. The fashion show dubbed as La Vanita Vita features Filipina bloggers wearing the latest collection of House of Vanita. It is the famed Italian designer Fabiola Marin who is the creative force behind House of Vanita. 

The event started a bit late but cocktails were served the entire night. It was a good thing because I took some test shots first before the show begun.
