Blogger Event: Promod Style It Out For Me "Je Ne Sais Quoi"

5/12/2010Shen

Who would have thought a plain silly girl like me would have some style sense? Well, it wasn't a one-woman theme because Teeyah was there to help me out. Our labor of love or should I say, the outfits we want to wear if we were as tall as those French women, won us the Promod Style Challenge.

During the event, we got to have a fun time with fellow bloggers that we usually see on beauty and fashion events. It was fun seeing Lace, Tere, Bambi, Earth, Lauren, Geolette and Nikki. The stylists Jo, Alex, Shanna, Arnie was also present for the event. Support from fellow bloggers like Azrael, Earth, Leira and Lauren's BF was truly appreciated. Too bad that Bianca, one of the blogger contestant wasn't there to join the festivities.

Teeyah and I already conceded to just take home the loot bags for those who joined. Win or lose, we had an experience that is unforgettable. After all, we didn't really have the proper skills and knowledge when it comes to fashion except for what we think exuded our personalities and needs the best. We were just out to have fun. (Cue Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun song)

So, there we were like two giddy children having the time of our lives as we look at the mannequin wearing the clothes we created. My heart skipped a beat seeing my site on a 32 inch flat screen TV for everyone to see in Megamall Atrium. It was already a winning moment for me having been a contestant and my site displayed like that.

But when our names were called as one of the winners of the Promod, Style it Out For Me Je ne sais quoi Challenge made me (followed by Tara) jumped for joy. Yes, I was hopping. Gone was my poise and it felt like I was being called on stage on Wowoweee or even won the lottery. That's how surprised we were. We really didn't expect it. up to this day, we don't know what we did right for the judges to like our work.


The second floor Megamall Atrium transformed to a what seems like a Hollywood set of a French Cafe.





The music couldn't have set off the moment any better. Great team you have there, Sirs!


Beautiful people of Promod with Ms. Janelle, Branch Manager for Promod Megamall.
Wouldn't you just love her job?














Large LCD TV by Sansui were provided for each of the bloggers who joined the contest.


Looking up and thanking God for this blessings.

To the people of Promod Megamall who helped us in our styling challenge.
Thank YOU very much!

To Charisse Vilchez of Stratworks who made this event possible for the all bloggers. For letting us experience French high street fashion unlike any other. To Pam Sison of Promod, who was supportive and encouraging during our style challenge. To Ms. Janelle who was patient with us running around Promod. And to Mark for hauling the mannequins and changing them with clothes we picked. :) Thank you! Thank you!

To my fellow bloggers and contestants, we are all winners! Most of us may not have been to Paris and may not be all too familiar with what french high street fashion is... but this event alone proved us that we all have that Je Ne Sais Quoi!

much love,
Shen

Special thanks to Megamall Atrium, Promod, Bizu and Stratworks
