And one more thing before I sleep….
There’s this video going around for a long time now, about a certain fashion blogger who was lucky enough to be invited to a junket in New York.
Upon being interviewed on cam, she kind of dissed Philippine fashion and put herself above the local fashion populace.
I understand why lots of people are really pissed at this girl right now, but here are my thoughts as an older person:
1. She is a child, seriously, and doesn’t understand what she’s saying (so don’t take her seriously as she is not a fashion authority).
2. I also felt power at 22 with my own column at the Daily Globe, reviewing fashion shows and designers either wanting to have lunch with me or have my head on a platter. Such power at a young age can make one—delusional.
2. I’ve seen her blog. More than a fashion blog, I find it bordering on the narcissistic, and that’s me being kind. 🙂
3. No offence, but head-to-toe Forever 21 is just so funny—no offence to Forever 21, opening in Makati this Thursday!!
4. Again, she’s a child with a blog and feeling power. I’m too old to pick on her and honestly, happy she’s going to Fashion Week in New York. I’d much rather have her than you-know-who. 😉

ah, so yung “somebody i used to know” ay si Bryan”Gantcho”Boy? ‘langyang shokla sabi sa twitter “i kinda miss home, but not really”. He would trade a soul for his luxe lifestyle now.

I didn’t see anything incorrect about what she said. Filipinos might be aware of fashion trends, but rarely emulate them. Wouldn’t it be more embarrassing if she said that the Philippines WAS a “fashion forward” country and then tourists who come to the Philippines to expect to see exciting and innovative street fashion walk away shaking their heads?

You lot take it too personally, reading too much into words, twisting them around, and refusing to see things from another perspective before shooting your mouth off, via blog.

Ah, but the right statement should be, “Filipinos prefer practicality over trendiness.” (A quote from a friend–we’ve been discussing fashion in the Philippines and lo and behold! I found this blog!) This woman acting like a teenager will look back one day and regret what she has said. 

Just sayin’.

I don’t see anything special with the way she dresses. She’s trendy, not fashionable. There’s a difference between the two. I would be happier if some classy ukay/bazaar hunter was chosen from our country. Now that person would be a perfect representation of state of fashion in our country. We have to break out from mall fashion in order to avoid compromising our individuality and manage to look good with our small purses .

Frankly, the PH has bigger problems than fricking fashion. Let’s all move on. 🙂

You can’t judge Mitch’s clothes just by one experience. It’s Tricia’s opinion nga pero she’s somehow representing the country. We can all say that we could pretty much fucking live without her saying that. That may be just her being geeky and clumsy but it doesn’t take that much to know when you’re stating your opinion or bashing your country.

LadygagaWTF? Reply:

lady gaga is NOT fashion forward. she just tries to dress differently and weird so that people would say that she’s so “original and unique” as if. She keeps trying hard to portray herself as a unique and original one,when she just copied  Actress Bette Midler. search it up on the internet so that you’d have a little idea of who’s original.

When reading CVS’s entry, I couldn’t think of the girl she was referring to. I thought si Bryanboy. Pero “she” nga, so I read further. I found out that it was Tricia G. Then naalala ko what my fashonera friend na friend ni TG na she was going to NYC to meet Tiang Nina G for the Tumblr thingie. Yun na. Read the poor girl’s blog. She was sorry naman pala for what she said. Implying that she was overwhelmed by the whole shebang. Charotera! The way I see it she was just trying to kiss Tiang NG’s white ass,… Read more »
