Hollywood Fashion: What are Kasil Jeans Made of?

You see them worn by Hollywood celebrities, the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Ashton Kutcher, Vanessa Minnillo and Brad Pitt. Those denim jeans that look sexier by the minute.They're called Kasil jeans. Managed and marketed by Venture Commerce, they come in innovative designs that fit comfortably to both men and women. So, what are Kasil jeans made of? For one, the tailors of Kasil jeans use only top denim from mills in the US, Canada, Japan and Italy, applying time-tested techniques to produce denim jeans styled like suit pants.


One technique used by the makers of Kasil jeans is darting at the waist sides to emphasize the modern style of wearing jeans at the hips and give a consistent, comfortable fit to wearer. Kasil jeans are available in the United States where they have stores in Los Angeles and New York.

Kasil jeans are available in five basic washes:

1. Rinse Born
- a raw dark denim in the first stages of its life
2. Atlantic - rich deep blue denim
3. Baltic - a medium blue
4. Pacific - lighter, warmer blue
5. Destruct- a vintage-colored denim that is hand-abrasioned to give an aged-look

See more designs of Kasil jeans on the company's website at

The P1000 Sodexho GC Challenge at SM Department Store

I had P1000 Sodexho Gift Certificates (GCs) to spare so I ended up hitting the SM Department Store at SM Mall of Asia Friday night and used them to my heart's content. Meanwhile, I challenged myself to make the most of it as it's not everyday that I get free GCs (thanks to my sponsor!). And since this is a budget shopping blog, I got more inspired. I called it the P1000 GC Challenge. Without further a do, join me as I scrutinize the items I bought using the P1000 Sodexho GCs:


A Pair of Parisian Shoes. The signature brand of shoes at SM Department Store, Parisian offers shoes that are affordable and of high quality.I chose a pair of pointed pumps to be used in the office. I am wearing it today, actually. Perfect for skirts as the shoes help emphasize your sexy legs.I got this metallic gray pair for only P599.75.


Underwear Set from Gigi Amore. I love Gigi Amore. I really do. Their undies are sexy and cheap. I've been buying them since 2007. I think I have a dozen pairs already. This is the latest addition to that small collection. The price of a pair of underwear (panty and bra set) from Gigi Amore can go anywhere from P179.75 to P249.75. I got this pair for P179.75.


Faux Black Pearl Set from What Women Want (WWW). For only P79.75, this faux set of jewelry, which consists of a choker, a bracelet and a pair of earrings, is a must for women on the go. It's the perfect accessory for everyday business attires. I plan to wear it soon to match a white top. Aren't they cute?


Buy 1, Take 1 Hair Conditioner from Watsons. This I would just like to try for the sake of trying. I thought it's a bargain at P99.00. My rebonded hair needs it to remain straight, sleek and shiny. I hope it doesn't disappoint me, otherwise I won't buy this again. Ever.


Wet Wipes from Watsons. I still had some credits left so I picked this small pack of wet tissues up. It sells at P30.75. This is for hygienic purposes, another way to keep me from the A(H1N1) virus, or so I believe.

Here's the breakdown of the five items I purchased:

1 Pair of Metallic Gray Pumps, Parisian.....................................599.75
1 Set of Underwear, Gigi Amore..................................................179.75
1 Set of Faux Black Pearl, WWW...................................................79.75
Buy 1, Take 1 Hair Conditioner, Watsons.....................................99.00
1 Pack of Wet Tissues......................................................................30.75



As you can see from the breakdown and the receipt above, the grand total of my purchase is P989. I was short by P11 to reach the P1000 mark. That's the sad thing about GCs. You don't get a change so you have to make sure you will be able to use each and every single peso. In my case, I already bought all that I wanted and unfortunately, I didn't see any item that sells at P11. So, I just walked up to the counter and paid. As expected, no change was given. Only points were added to my SM Advantage card.

Mission accomplished. :)

VNC Ladies Shoes and Bags: Fun, Stylish and Affordable

Update: Get P200 Discount Coupons from VNC!

Vincci, locally known as the brand VNC, has been around in the Philippines for a few years already but it was only last Saturday that I actually took a closer look at their offerings. This was during a promotional campaign for bloggers organized by VNC Philippines and First Tier Branding Solutions, Inc. held at Milky Way Cafe in Makati. Primarily, VNC sells ladies shoes and bags that are fun, stylish and affordable. And I was not kidding you and when I said that.

VNC shoes

VNC is actually a Malaysian brand that started in 1981. It belongs to the famous Padini Group of Companies that carry several high-end fashion and lifestyle brands under their labels. Through the years, it has become a symbol of style and confidence among women, especially the working ones.

Today, VNC has over 100 stores worldwide. And they continue to create fashionable ladies shoes and bags (in vibrant colors and styles) from high quality materials that are sure to provide every woman the comfort and elegance they deserve.

Affordability and variety are two important factors that differentiate VNC from its competitors. Here, the prices of ladies shoes and bags range from P700 to P4,500. They come up with new collections four times a year. Now that gives women more choices than ever.

Presently, VNC has stores at Robinsons Galleria, Glorietta, Robinsons Place Manila and Mall of Asia, among others. There's also another branch opening soon at the posh Eastwood Mall so watch out for that. :)
