(Dress: H&M// Heels: Mango// Clutch: SM Accessories)

It was my first time attending a Preview Best Dressed Ball this year and I wonder why I haven't gone to previous ones before (*knocks myself on the head*). The event was so much fun and I had such a good time shaking my bonbons to nostalgic dance songs, together with my blogger friends (you know who you are!).

The theme for this year's Ball was athletic chic. Needless to say, I got really excited the first time I got wind of the theme because I adore sportswear...a lot! I originally wanted to have a pair of track shorts and jacket customized but due to time constraints, I had to settle with whatever I could find in my closet that could fit in with the theme. The first look that I had in mind was a combination of a floral bomber jacket + peplum top + hot shorts. However, the actual look didn't translate well to how I was envisioning it so I had to scrap the whole ensemble. I ended up turning to this neon dress which has been hanging inside my closet for months. It had this neoprene-like material which reminded me of a scuba-diving suit. The dress could very well pass off as a trendy tennis wear as well (although I highly doubt that a pro tennis player can move around a lot in it).

Congratulations to Preview and to all of the Best Dress honorees this year! Looking forward to next year's Best Dressed Ball!

P.S. Loads of thanks to Anton Aguila for these photos and to Camille Regala for my makeup! 
P.P.S. Look how nasty my feet looks in the last photo. Hahaha!

  2. Wow! You really had to point out your feet! Haha! So kalog! :) You still look great Ms. Kookie! :)

    Ei, I hope you don't mind me asking. You also buy from Romwe too right? Does it cost a lot in customs? Like if I get 3-4 pieces of clothing ... can you help me with an estimate? Thanks in advance! I'll appreciate it. :)

    I can see how those heels are your new faves. :)

    1. Hi Chai. The items I get from Romwe are sent over for free. I have no idea how much Customs will charge if you have purchased items from the sent shipped to the Philippines. :(

  8. This dress is such a statement maker! I have been craving athletic inspired looks. Though I would probably have to wear this style slightly different :) You have always inspired my style and you never cease to amaze me. Plus you were one of the first few bloggers who reached out to me on Chictopia. Anyways, I digress. Amazing outfit!
