Hi, everyone! Welcome to Greta’s Junkyard, a dump of articles on fashion, beauty, travel, lifestyle, and more. My name is Gretchen Gatan Fragada. I’m a writer and editor based in Metro Manila, Philippines. I started this blog in 2013 as a creative platform. And since then, I use it to document or write about my favorite things! Recently, a batch mate of mine from Poveda, who owns AVA the Brand, launched a special collection in collaboration with fashion blogger Camille Co. I was actually supposed to attend the event at 1220 House but got caught up with a work meeting. But anyway! The collection features styles that have a classic, versatile, day-to-night and all-around look that transcends multiple occasions. Moreover, they come in the cutest colors that make you pop and look fresh!
The Charlotte Tube Dress from AVA the Brand x Camille Co
One of my favorite pieces from the AVA the Brand x Camille Co collection is the Charlotte Tube Dress in Lilac. It’s a classic column-style tube midi dress with a folded fabric detail in the chest area. Additionally, it has an invisible back zipper, darts for shape, and side slits for easy movement. It’s also made with an exclusive blended linen fabric.
The reason I love this dress so much, aside from the color, is that you can easily go from office chic to date night elegance. You just need to change your shoes and accessorize!
Sandy Sleeveless Vest
Another versatile piece I love from the collection is the Sandy Sleeveless Vest. It’s a tailored-style sleeveless vest that comes with contrast buttons, shoulder pads, side pockets, frontal darts, and a back slit for a structured yet feminine feel.
I can totally imagine myself wearing it at work or even brunch with friends. You can even pair it with the Cathy Trousers. These are wide-leg, full-length trousers that have double-pleated front detailing, secret side pockets, and a double hook and eye zip-front closure.
Love and Support Local
As someone who has witnessed how much time and effort my batch mate has poured into AVA the Brand, it makes me so proud that she was able to create a local fashion label that offers style, quality, and affordability. It’s definitely elevated the style scene. And it has given modern women like me beautiful, timeless options that we can wear again and again.
