The country girl in me (read: Anne of Green Gables) loves anything sweet, printed, and shabby chic.
I get so gigil when I see stores like Cabbages and Roses in Tokyo.
Cabbages and Roses is a Bristish lifestyle brand that started producing fabrics in 2000.
The fabrics became cushions, pillows, dresses, blankets, curtains, wallpaper—basically everything for the home and the ladies. It has a store in Chelsea, London, and many more in Japan.
This kind of lifestyle is but a dream for me
I may not have the lifestyle, but I can have some of the clothes, which I adore
As a patternmaker, I love that many of their pieces look like doll’s clothes
Imagine my delight when I found Cabbages and Roses right here in Uniqlo Mall of Asia and SM North The Block (yes, I went to both stores!)
I was surprised to see comfy printed hoodies for only Php 790
I bought three!
I know it’s summer, but I love soft hoodies and wear them at home when my husband turns the aircon thermostat down.
Unfortunately not too many pieces in Manila. Wish they had more of the pieces, but hey, I’m happy with my loot.
