November has been such a craaazy and eventful (yet exciting!) month for us at the Glamourbox headquarters. For starters, despite our small team, we were able to pull through and launched our four brands in SM Mall of Asia, SM Makati, and Wellworth UP Town Center in a span of two weeks.
It wasn’t easy, and most days our eye bags ended up having their own bags—but we did it! And I can’t be any prouder of our team.

Another reason why I’ve been looking forward to November is because our Glamourbox Girl Boss tied the knot in Shangri-La Boracay! The wedding was held last Saturday along the beach, and it was just beautiful. Everything was so her—simple, elegant, and classic. Their vows were incredibly adorable, too.

Since this is just my second wedding to attend as an adult (and my first beach/destination wedding ever!), I have little experience when it comes to knowing what to bring and what makeup to wear. But for my #OOTD, I definitely knew where I wanted to get my dress—and it was from Love, C Manila.
My friend happens to own it, so a few months before the wedding, I gave her a heads up that I was going to order her best-selling Faye Sideboob Dress (Php 1,650). But because I wanted the dress to be more on the conservative side, she was nice enough to alter and customize the dress for me—so the back part became higher (making it easy to wear a strapless bra) and she adjusted the length of the dress to my height.
I paired the dress with white sandals, a white detailed bag (which I borrowed from my sister), and kept my accessories minimal—just dangling pearl earrings and pearl bracelets.
The mint green color of the dress blended so well with the venue. I love that it complements my built, too! I’m so tempted to get it in other colors—most especially the indigo violet, red, white, and black.
The beauty of Love, C Manila’s dresses is that they’re super versatile. You can easily play it up with high heels and accessories, or keep it simple and play it down just like what I did. You can wear it to different kinds of occasions, whether formal or casual. Apart from the Faye Sideboob Dress, there are other styles and designs that even celebrities are starting to wear them. And for prospective brides looking for dresses for their entourage, you can order in bulk from Love, C Manila and they can customize or alter the design for you.
Check out Love, C Manila’s Facebook page and Instagram account to view more of their styles and designs. I’m already hoping for another event to attend, so I have another reason to order a Faye Sideboob Dress in a different color! Haha.
