Anya Hindmarch sticker shop at Adora
Posted on

I’m a sucker for personalization because there’s no mistaking what’s yours is yours. For example, my Goyard tote from Paris.

Since I rarely go to Paris, I had to ask my friends Penny to order it, and Jappy to pick it up months later.
Now I don’t have to. British accessory designer Anya Hindmarch has created a range of stickers in collaboration with Charlotte Stockdale of Chaos Fashion.
The collection of luxurious embossed leather stickers can be used to personalize anything from your handbag to your purse, phone, luggage, laptop, etc.

Now the stickers are available at Adora, Greenbelt 5, which I visited last week.

Choose well. Because once you stick them on they are kind of permanent. Stickers start at Php 2950 for the small letters.
I’m so boring though. This is what I’d do. 🙂

Adora also stocks a range of Anya Hindmarch bags and accessories.

Harlan+Holden opens pop-up stores
Posted on

When I was younger, I had all the time for fashion, taking as much as two hours to try on outfits. I also had less clothes, less money, and we had almost no stores in Manila, so putting together an outfit was not that easy.
Now that I’m older and have more clothes, I still love fashion, but I can’t be bothered trying on outfits for hours. Not really.
That’s why I tend to buy and wear the same brand, same colors, and same shapes.
Harlan+Holden understands women who like fashion but don’t have time to think about it because they’re simply too busy.
That’s why they created pieces that are easy to put on in as little steps as possible. Maybe you just have to slip it over your head, or maybe it has one zipper.
To make life ever easier, they’ve made the collection easier to find by putting two pop-up locations at Rockwell’s Power Plant Mall and at Greenbelt 5.
The Greenbelt 5 pop-up can be found right next to Marc by Marc Jacobs at the ground level.

The Power Plant pop-up is also at the ground level in the middle of the mall. You can’t miss it because the store is so cute with a charming little fitting room.

@chuvafinds: Adora gift guide 2015
Posted on

Less than one week before Christmas! I wish I could say I was done gift-shopping, but the hardest people to give gifts to would be certain members of my family. I am not yet done!
Last week I dropped by Adora at Greenbelt 5 to look for gifts for people who have everything.
Here’s what we loved:

1) The camouflage Valentino sneakers (Php 42,800)
It’s great how Valentino became relevant again with its new styles. Though I’m not one to wear the rockstud collection, I do love the colorful camouflage sneakers on men and women, and Adora has them.

2) Stella McCartney shoes (about Php 57,000)
Didn’t know Adora had these! Stella McCarney’s black Britt platform shoes have been on my wish list for some time now. I always look for them when I travel, and they never have it in my size and color.
Couldn’t believe my eyes (and luck) when Adora had it in stock! So yay!! Mine.

3) Pedro Garcia Parson Satin Sneakers (Php 22,800)
Not your typical sneakers. Love the Spanish-made sneakers with the frayed edges and exaggerated laces. Because I like unfinished and comfy looks.

4) Pretty Ballerinas Gwyneth flats (Php 11,800)
Made in Spain, the shoes have been manufactured by the same family in Menorca since 1918. Each shoe style is named after a female screen or music icon, such as the Gwyneth flats, which any girly girl would love.
Fans of Pretty Ballerinas include Angelina Jolie and Olivia Palermo.


5) Alexander McQueen bags (about Php 83,000)
McQueen may be gone, but his name lives on. There’s a whole range at Adora’s new handbag department. I love the simple, boxy shapes.

6) Penhaligon’s
For the gentleman who has everything, Adora carries the British perfumer brand Penhaligon’s. They have candles and gift sets for gentlemen, including talcum powder and deodorant. Their packaging says it all.


7) Perfumes and candles by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Francis Kurkdjian is a French contemporary perfumer and winner of the Prix François Coty in 2001.
Adora carries a range of products and gift items by the fragrance house and everything about it smells like luxury.


Find them at Adora, 2nd level, Greenbelt 5, Makati City.
