Le Parisian Girl

Rajo Laurel launched his new shoe collection in collaboration with SM Parisian (for women) and SM Milanos (for men) last September 25, 2012 at the SMX Convention Center. I feel like such a bad blogger for not having to blog on time. Forgive me! *sobs* The event is by invite only. I didn't know about the launch until I came across Parisian's twitter page and saw their contest to win vip invites to the event. Anyone can send in their photo wearing any Parisian shoes, and that will serve as your entry. I honestly only have one pair of Parisian heels but I have tons of photos wearing them because I absolutely love that pair! I bought that way back in 2010 and that was probably my first-ever-pair-of-killer-heels-bought-with-my-own-money! I remember blogging about the time when we (Nina and I) bought those shoes! Read about it here. And having our first photoshoot with it here, here and here.

Okay, so back to the real topic! I submitted a lot of entries. All entries were uploaded here, try looking for all my entries, hehe! The finalists were selected by bloggers like Lissa Kahayon, Shai Lagarde, Alyssa Lapid and the Enciso sisters. I don't know if you've guessed it already since I've been blabbering about it but I was one of the finalists!! I can't believe it at first actually. There were tons, I say, TONS of entries submitted and I was truly lucky to be among the finalists. With this, I got two vip invites to the launch!

This was my LUCKY ENTRY that was chosen by Shai of Lovechic!

And I didn't expect that I'd be even luckier, until I was chosen as one of the Top 3 Le Parisian Girls as well! The three were chosen from the finalists by Rajo Laurel himself! And with this, I won a freakin' two pairs of shoes from his new collection! Yeeyyyy me!!

I brought my mom as my date for that night! I am so glad that she was up for it and really excited dressing up. I even lend her my Parisian shoes! Look how hot my momma was! lol!
If you were wondering why I didn't brought Nina, it's because the event was a weekday and she had classes that she can't risk not attending.

The whole collection was Japanese-inspired and the set of the event was of the same ambiance as well.

I saw this little fashionista kid and I can't help but take a photo of her.

I love this rotating stage! I've always dreamed of modeling in one!

My favorite part of the event: Shopping!

Tried on these babies because they're so gorgeous! But I can't seem to walk in it comfortably, it's too wobbly for me.
I don't know for you, though. Tell me if you can strut these! :)

I met Seph of Lovechic! I approached him to thank them for picking me as one of the finalists! He was so nice and friendly! Unfortunately, Shai wasn't there. I really wanted to have a picture with her too, though!

I borrowed Nina's dress from Oasap. See her post about it here.
Oasap dress | Tomato watch | Esprit bag | SM Accessories stockings | LeDonne heels

And of course, I wouldn't go home without meeting the star of the night! Our convo went like this:
Me: Hi! I'm one of the Le Parisian Girls! Thank you so much for picking me!
Rajo: Of course, you're so chic! What did you choose? Show them what you chose!

Had a blast that night! Follow me on Instagram (@secretcharmm) to see which pairs I brought home!

Incidentally, the wife has some ara boots that look like the footwear in those pictures. I guess it's safe to say she's got pretty good taste.

These shoes are stunning. I wonder how much it would take for freight shipping costs to get me some of these babies?

Char said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply]

@Liberty Silvagni Thank you! :) Not sure if those are available internationally though :)

Derrick Jimenez said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply]

I actually wanted to know to if that will be internationally available. Because if it is, I will definitely buy some.

Char said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply]
