An Afternoon Tea with Anne Curtis

For those of you who have been following my blog, 
you would have noticed by now that
Plains and Prints is a brand that I love and trust.
They offer versatile and classy pieces, simply a perfect fit to my personality.

So when Plains and Prints sent me an exclusive invite 
to their Pre-Fall collection showcase, I immediately said "Yes!".

Last June 19, 2014, the Pre-Fall collection was unveiled at a Tea Party at the 
new Plains and Prints store located on the 5th level of Shangrila Plaza Mall, 
graced by the Plains and Prints woman herself --- the lovely Anne Curtis.

It is of great honor to be part of this event and believe me,
their new collections are incredibly fabulous!

Flattering silhouettes, vivid colors and out-of-the box prints.
Class and sophistication meet bold and fun details.
This is what we can expect from the Pre-Fall Collection.
Scroll down and see for yourself :)

As a fashion lover and stylist, I highly recommend this brand to every
modern and sophisticated Filipina out there.  

Don't you just love how the set-up was made? 
From the furniture to the carefully chosen color combination,
 to the floral designs and delightful snacks, 
It was so surreal. Just perfect for an afternoon tea celebration.

Our beautiful and friendly host

And here comes the ever so gorgeous Anne Curtis!
During her interview, Anne describes herself as "Fun, Free and Fearless"

With over 6.5 million followers on Twitter and 1.8 million followers on Instagram, 
who doesn't admire her?  In everything she does on and off-cam, she remains to be
a style icon as she puts the word FUN in every outfit she puts together. 

On her Style Personality:

"I consider myself a girly-girl, so I love dressing up for my OoTD posts.
It's really so much fun. I just love dressing up and I pour time and effort
to take photos of what I would be wearing for the day because it mostly
expresses the mood I am in," says Anne.

On why she loves Plains and Prints:

"That's why I love how Plains and Prints' clothes answer the woman's need
for both style and comfort. In my case, Plains and Prints has everything
to suit what I feel like wearing for the day --- but always with a touch of
fun and girly sophistication," Anne quips.

On why Anne is the perfect fit for Plains and Prints:

"Anne is not afraid to try out the new things and be bold that is why we love designing
with her in our mind. She is the exact Plains and Prints woman who likes
prints and color. She is very innovative with her outfits, yet still maintains that
classy vibe," explains Eala.

So now, it is a pleasure to share with you Plains and Prints 2014 Pre-Fall Collection.
The Collection is conceptualized by topnotch designer and Plains and Prints 
Creative Director Rhett Eala and endorsed by no less than the 
Plains and Prints woman herself--- Anne Curtis.

The Plains and Prints Pre-Fall collection is composed of four sets of 
off-the-rack ensembles that range from the playful, to the romantic, to the sophisticated.

The new collections embody the look that the fiercely independent professional woman 
goes for --- well-polished, trendy and unique.

"The Plains and Prints woman is not afraid to try trends or to stand out in her outfits.
She always has a fun element in her clothes because she could go from a 
busy day at work to a fun night out with friends. She is always well put together,
and you will never see her dull and boring," describes Eala.

Here's the Inspiration behind every Collection.

The California Dreamin' Collection has very sweet colors and
gets its inspiration from the warm autumn sunshine. 
It suits women who want a more natural vibe, 
yet still desire to look polished and respectable.

As Rhett Eala would describe, "the California Dreamin' collection gives out a 
refreshing, cool vibe."

This collection comes in pretty shades of pink and green from styles 
ranging from shift dresses, waist dresses and pants popping out with dainty details.

The Fleur de Lis Collection is one of my favorites. 
Anne Curtis came to the event wearing a captivating dress from this collection.

The clothes from this collection exhibits a very romantic and feminine vibe. 
The collection gets its inspiration from flowers and 
comes in vibrant shades of fuchsia, purple, peach and pink which 
reflects the color of the year ---- radiant orchid pink.

"I wanted to capture daintiness and sophistication all in one collection," Eala notes.

The Flights of Fancy Collection features a twist on a 
classic wardrobe staple --the button polo down shirt.
From just a simple regular button-down shirt, Plains and Prints turned it
into something fun and fancy with the help of vibrant prints and interesting colors.

Match it with a pair of denim or just casual short shorts and 
you'll look trendy in no time.

"Polo shirts are such a staple in office wear. We wanted to give it a twist. 
The pieces from Flights of Fancy can take you from the office to, maybe, 
an after work hangout," says Eala.

Another favorite collection of mine is The Uptown Girl Collection.
This collection is perfect for all Cosmopolitan Ladies out there.

Inspired by no less than the ultimate uptown girl herself --- Audrey Hepburn,
this collection features feminine silhouettes with rich details 
in bold shades of blues, yellows and oranges. 
Pure style and grace, very much like Audrey.

"With Uptown Girl, we focus on creating very classy, sophisticated silhouettes & details.
Audrey Hepburn never left our mind while we were designing the clothes, 
asking ourselves, what would she wear?" Eala adds.

All these collections will be available at Plains and Prints stores nationwide
  starting June 26, 2014,
or via online shopping through

I would like to congratulate Plains and Prints founders and owners 
Mr. Erickson Farillas and Mrs. Roxanne Farillas
for a very successful launch. They never fail to create unique fashion pieces.
