Christmas eve with my family is dinner at a fancy restaurant and presents bought and given way ahead of time. We had dinner at Aubergine, my favorite patisserie in Manila, and this is what I wore:
Marc Jacobs necklace, Topman LTD club collar shirt, Mangrove pants, Bottega Veneta loafers
I recently developed an affinity for club collars soon after I got over the Dr. Robert Rey stigma they once had. I’m seeing a tailor-made club-collar shirt of my design in the near future.

Some photos from that night:
butter and and a surprisingly addictive tuna brine spread

Sideswept bangs run in the family.

P.S. To all my blogger friends who greeted me, I apologize for not being able to reply to you one by one. Happy Holidaze to you too!
