Time is ticking so fast. I didn't actually realize that we are nearing the end of September.
I didn't go to work today. Sobrang puyat and haggard since I paid a visit to Divisoria to get a sample of the entourage gown that I asked my dressmaker to make. Mahirap na eh, kelangan ko muna makita ung yari ng gown before I could actually make a deal with them. As much as I wanted to have a couturier do the gown for my female entourage kasi, I am afraid that my budget won't permit that. Besides, I know na madami namang magaling na mananahi sa Divi. One should just be patient enough on finding the right one. Meron din naman kasi na mura nga, palpak naman. I am really not stressing that much for the outfit that my male ento will wear. Yung iba kasi sa kanila eh ipagre-rent na lang namin ng suit.
I was actually happy with how the entourage gown turned out. Secondary sponsors and bridesmaids will wear ALMOST the same type of gown. It is just going to be the maid-of-honor-, my Ate, who will wear and entirely different gown. Shempre,dapat extra special. I have ran a poll here in my blog about the designs that my entourage will wear but due to some reason, napalitan sya. One, it was a pain in the ass for me looking for the textile of those sample gowns. Second, I realized that not all of the are fairly-skinned so magmumukhang negrita ang magsusuot ng orange and red ang morenang abay. And third, we changed our motif from autumn colors to chocolate brown and yellow.
I got home at around 12:30pm and soon as I dropped my bag, I immediately fit the gown and showed to Momcy. Sorry naman for the blurry pic. I just used a cellphone kasi. Mama was so happy about the gown. Simple lang kasi sya. It is something they could use in any function. Hindi katulad ng mga gown ko before that after the wedding eh sa cabinet na lang ang bagsak. Hindi uber-uber sa burloloy plus the fact that the beads that were used were not the chipangga beads, but Japan beads. Yun ung malinaw talaga and parang swarovski na nga ang dating ng beads. I was the one who provided the fabric. A month a go, I was going gaga over what fabric should I use. I really don't want the shiny ones. So after so much contemplation plus some calculation, I ended up buying taffeta. I bought 2 meters of brown and 1 meter of yellow taffeta all for the price of P450 (P150/meter). As for the fee of gown labor, I was able to close the deal with a fee of P550. Kaya ang isang gown eh nasa P1,000 lang. This is actually a huge savings compared sa mga couturier na P2,500 ang minimun charge for a satin or shantung fabric.
As of the gowns of our mommies, shempre di pwedeng Divi. We will have their gowns made by a couturier na talaga. Dapant bongga talaga... LOL
Oh well, my next stop is going to be the tuxedo/suit maker for erpats and Russ. I heard that Kamuning has some great tailoring shops that offer tuxedo/suit at a much lower rate. We'll see. 'Till next update! :)
P.S. I know I have promise one update for last Wednesday. I just couldn't find the time to write an update about it since mejo mahaba ang 'wento. This week end, pramis. I'll post an update about "the office."
