Abreeza Ayala Mall strengthens its commitment to be a bastion for fashion in Davao City by holding a Fashion Forum called Scandi-lous. It's an exclusive mini fashion show attended by members of the city's fashion publishing, and blogging communities. I'm glad to be invited to get a peek at the trends that are set to take over in 2016.

Lifestyle bloggers Jeffrey Mondia and Clea Banal
Last January 24, models showed off Scandinavian inspired looks from merchants namely Debenhams, Dorothy Perkins, GAP, Mango, Marks & Spencer, and Promod.

Pam Quiñones, editor-in-chief of L'Officiel Manila was invited to talk about her style forecast in 2016 with Philippa Andren, a fashion consultant involved with L'Officiel Manila's styling team and a Scandinavian herself hailing from Denmark.

An exhibit by local fashion design collective Davao Elite Fashion Group graced the night inspired by the Pantone Color Institute's Color of the Year for 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. They featured pink and blue-toned creations by Andi Amora, Aztec Barba, Bamba Limon, Tzardy Tombo, Windell Mira, and Xioti Chiu.

I met one of the top fashion bloggers and budding actress Laureen Uy at the SM Lanang Premier's runway show called #StyleGuide. She showcased her style forecast for 2016 with pieces from Penshoppe, Forever 21, and Guess.

It is the second time that SM Lanang Premier featured Laureen Uy. The first was in 2013, which I was really interested in attending. But I have to work at that time. She's with top male fashion blogger David Guison, for the mall's Lookbook Live runway show, where Laureen shared her flair for bold, spirited fashion combinations.

For men, long or oversized shirts are in this 2016.You can pair it with a colorful pair of pants or jogger pants.

Denim on denim is still in this year.

For women, go raid your mom's closet because a mix of vintage and the new will be in this year.

Stripes and laces will be a hit this summer too.

Here's a tip from Laureen, "If you are not comfortable wearing it, then don't wear it." Simple but true.

Thanks, Laureen Uy (www.breakmystyle.com) for the fashion tips and to SM Lanang for inviting me!

Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!

I love any kinds of footwear, especially the ones that are comfortable, easy to wear, and stylish. So I was really happy to be invited to the boutique opening of a Spanish footwear brand - Flossy in Abreeza Ayala Mall. Flossy imbibes the quintessential vibe of carefree Ibiza. Their plimsolls are very comfortable and stylish fit for the new generation of youth.

These handmade footwear was worn by bohemians, street artists, and sailing enthusiasts and it gained its popularity in Ibiza as a staple within the clubbing scene. The fame reached the UK and everyone is wearing it a summer footwear and now, it's available in over 40 countries worldwide.

Flossy Arnedo

The original design yet not boring, the Flossy Arnedo features a vibrant range of solid hues such as Coral, Pastel Blue, Maroon, and Teal Green.

Flossy Ondara
This is the Flossy Ondara. The Ondara completes the range with a silver, and pale pink offering in crusted jewelled finishes perfect for casual and more glamorous occasions.

Flossy Malaga Watermelon White
They also have a lot of designs for you to choose. I don't know about you, but this Malaga Watermelon plimsoll is super cute!

Flossy Cadiz Floral
Inspired by the bohemian aesthetic, the Flossy Cadiz Floral, which comes in blue, black, or white floral designs, is ideal for the adventure-seeking or artistically-inclined bunch.

Flossy Madrid
They also have a wide variety of designs for men. The Flossy Madrid is available in blue, tan, or black. This is ideal for the preppy guys out there.

They have plimsolls for kids too! You can have the same design with your kids and have that "Like Mother - Like Daughter" moment.

I almost forgot to tell you that all Flossy footwear smells so good! It smells like candy! According to Ms. Alex Lizares, Flossy Style Brand Executive, it's a natural reaction to the specialized rubber that they use in making these stylish plimsolls.

Thanks Ms. Alex and Ms. Mae Sanchez, from the Primer Group of Companies for inviting us to the opening of Flossy.

Visit the Flossy Boutique now and walk around in style and comfort with the latest footwear in the Philippines.

That's it for today folks! Thanks for dropping by! Have a great day!
