KCC Fashion x Laureen Uy

KCC Fashion

GenSan malls are now really leveling up!

From better products being sold, celebrity mall shows, and mall renovations, the people of Gensan couldn’t really ask for more.   But, lo and behold, KCC Mall of Gensan had a treat for us fashionistas !

In celebration of International Women’s Day last March 04, KCC Mall invited Fashion/Travel Blogger Laureen Uy for a 1-on-1 talk about her life as a fashion blogger, fashion tips and tricks, and more.

I was sooo excited to attend the event and KCC Mall of Gensan gave me Two (2) VIP Passes for a Meet & Greet with Laureen.   That literally made my month and I thought nothing can top that. But I was wrong.

Two days before the event, Curve101’s Brand Manager Mayenne Cagas gave me a call and ask me if I would agree to model for her brand during the event. I will get to keep the clothes that I will be wearing and the Laureen Uy herself will be styling me. I was dumbfounded.

But honestly, she got me at “free clothes”. Being styled by Laureen was a plus. Haha

The next day, Mayenne scheduled a fitting for me and I found myself at KCC Department Store at around 7PM.  I looked at the clothes and they are really good. Plus Size chicks also deserve to have fashionable clothes. Great job KCC for catering to our needs!

After a while, Mayenne arrived with Laureen. Yes! I got to go shopping with a celebrity. I’m cool like that, I know. Haha

Laureen & I after our session

Laureen first asked me what my usual style is and what clothes am I comfortable wearing.  I told her my style and she immediately created a vision of my outfit.

I’ve tried clothes here and there. Then she asked me if I’ve tried wearing cullotes before. I said “no” and she asked me to try it on with one of the tops that I liked.

And voila! I had my look.

I slept smiling that night. LOL

Then came the big day!

The event started and the host had a series of questions for Laureen.

It was an interview-type of conversation where she gets to share her fashion and blogging experience. Since I was modeling, I was not really able to witness the whole event. I was only able to come out of the holding room once it was time to showcase her styling.

One by one, each model went on stage and Laureen explained to the audience why she chose that particular look for us.

At the end of the event, she graciously agreed for some photo ops with the VIP guests.

Of course, I couldn’t resist having my photo taken with her too.

Laureen & I

KCC treated us lunch and I was glad because I was already starving.

So our group ate at Arpochi Seafood and got to spend more time with Laureen.  She was so friendly and made chika with us. She also gamely answered all our questions.

Here are some things I found out during lunch:

·      She started blogging at the age of 21.
·      She travels a lot… for work. She gets invited to a lot of events, meet & greets, fashion weeks, etc.
·      She loves to eat crabs! She loves to eat. PERIOD.
·      She loves “tomboy-chic” style.

Her tips:

·         You can layer denim over denim over denim.  Too much denim is never bad.
·         If you are on the heavy side, don’t be scared to try flared pants.
·         Stripes over stripes is classic.
·         The best time to take a selfie is at 4pm. The sun is at the right angle and at the same time, they sun rays are not too harsh on your skin.
·         The perfect size for your social media photos is 1080x1080.
·         Always wear something that you are comfortable in.

There you have it!

Overall, this was a great experience. I have always been a great supporter of women empowerment and it felt really good to be part of something like this. I’m also proud to represent my plus-size ladies and to promote my new advocacy, #BeBodyPositive.

Thanks KCC Mall of Gensan! More events like this please!
