Black shop, memo, Iora!

Iora has skirts and slacks you can pair off with their cute blouses. :)

My suit supplier has returned, yipee!  I realized na mas mura bumili ng ready-made suits rather than pagawa sa tailor.

^Hi Marose!  I haven't tried your supplier.  How do you like the fit and the materials?  How long does it take for her to take measurements and complete production?

But I have a pending order with a made-to-order shop along Arnaiz Ave.  Ang tagal nga lang... :( They're completing our company's uniform first before working on the individual orders.

Meron sa officemate mananahi ng corporate asuites. He charges 1500 for suit (blazer and skirt/slacks) and 2100 kung 3pc: blazer, skirt and slacks. Nagdadala rin sya ng swatch ng tela. Pro minsan matagalsya gumawa.

@happy_pomelo, the suits are ready made na.  They are sourced from Hong Kong and Korea, I think.  Nice fit and fabric, parang Theme but at a more budget-friendly price (P3,500/set of fully-lined blazer and pants/skirt). :)  She can go to your office to bring samples or you can go to her shops at Robinsons Galleria and Shoppesville (name of shop is Well Suited).

for corporate closed shoes, where to buy?
aside from stilletto pumps, pwede na ba ang booties, loafers, mary jane?
mahirap kc if high-heeled, and closed shoes give me footache.

boots? try gibi sis. real leather kaso parang may 1-2 inch heels. loafers - ok naman sis as long as leather para formal. mary jane - try hush puppies as some designs are not so casual naman.

What fabric or brand yung pwede ng wash and wear lang? Hirap kasi mag plantsa, para dina ko mag worry if kusot na ba [textspeak!] blouse, polo ko. Malamang masmahal, pero naisip ko tipid sa oras at kuryente na in the long run. Silk, cotton, g2000?

Can you give specific Divi brands? Not sure san import but so far nakita ko ang mga okay na tops are SkyNoble, Heidi Lauren (usually whites). Or what stalls in Divi? problem ko lang sa Divi is pag slacks na mahirap sa sizes ko, saka overtime nag-fade out [textspeak!] color ng black/brown or parang naghihimulmul na. Thanks.
