Accessorize All About Bags Launch
thrifted polo, Twins Closet brown bustier, bargain skirt & metallic flats. Accessorize bag and headband from our styling game.
Before October ended, Accessorize, the trendy London based accessories brand, invited bloggers to attend their All About Bags launch at Persia Grill, Skygarden. Despite my plans to watch PFW shows that day, I decided to go to their event instead since it’s nearer to my place.
All About Bags
is a thanksgiving sale held by Accessorize to show appreciation to all its loyal Filipino fans for the past three years. Featuring the 4 enticing new collections to watch out for: Margot, a dash of ladylike 70s love, Phoenix, a cultural spin on the urban military look, Abby, a meeting of urban with vintage and Lily, an illustrative range of Japanesque inspired products. From October 31 to November 30, 2011, season collection bags including some new arrivals are at 50% off! And yes, the bags below are also included! :)
We had a fun styling game after the introduction. Bloggers were asked to take home any bag of their choice from that couch. Sounds awesome right? But there’s a catch…
you have to fend off more than 10 super eager girls! :))
After getting our bags, we were asked to style our outfits using gorgeous accessories from Accessorize (tongue twister much?).
Fashion and beauty bloggers unleashing their inner stylists. ;) It was quite a challenge because we didn’t have a mirror (some checked their reflections using a turned off laptop screen) and of course, the ever present time pressure.
Pretty accessories! I wish we were allowed to take them all home (a girl can dream). I really loved the bangles and scarves.
After styling our outfits, we hit the “runway”! :) Ana and Melai, our hosts for the event, first demonstrated their fierce catwalk strut then everyone followed.
Pretty bloggers with the Accessorize bags they bagged. I originally wanted to take the sequined Union Jack clutch but someone already got it first so I didn’t hesitate to grab this green bag (damn, these girls are fast!).

But I didn’t take it home as expected. I heard from someone that we can switch bags so I did! I took home a chic, light pink, Berkin look alike tote bag. Wait for my “About the Bag official entry” for a photo of it.
Dinner time! Kudos to Persia Grill for being so accommodating (they even let me charge my camera’s battery) and for the yummy food.
We were so full from the buffet food that we barely touched these chicken (duck?) legs and pita bread *regrets* (note to self: go back to Persia Grill).
After dinner, I left with my lovely table mates Anne
. They were nice enough to help me find my way to the bus stop. :) Thank you so much to Accessorize and Bloggers United especially Ana
for inviting me. I had such an amazing time! :D
