My very good friend, Michelle Buencamino (Brand Manager of Dorothy Perkins) gave me a VIP ticket to the opening of Dorothy Perkins' flagship store in Powerplant Mall, Rockwell. I brought S and one of our colleagues at work, Weng, to the event.
Me with Michelle :-)
Sam Oh was the night's host. After the curtains were brought down, we saw the newly revamped Dorothy Perkins store! We were greeted by waiters serving each of the guests drinks an Irish cream drink similar to Bailey's. Then we just heard Sam Oh asking everyone to check the bottom of the glasses to see if there's a sticker. Those with stickers get A PRIZE.. which we feel bad that we didn't win because it's a P5,000 Dorothy Perkins gift certificate! It's our showbiz moment when we had our pics taken with Sam Oh. Not only that, S got interviewed by Sam and asked her what she was looking for. Definitely her 15 seconds of fame! Here's a sample of her quick showbiz moment:

15 minutes of fame with Sam Oh
Sam Oh: What are you looking for now?
S: Uhmm, Jeans...*pointing to the jeans hanging on the other side* over there!
We checked out all the items and I must say everything is drool worthy. All the chicks just went gaga over everything! Some even didn't bother to fall in line at the fitting room and just opted to swipe their credit cards at the cashier. S and I braved the long line at the fitting room to try out the jeans. But we were pissed to get out after knowing we can't fit into size 6 jeans!!! SADNESS! Kelangan na talaga mag diet! We were too lazy to get the next size (a.k.a feel bad to try size 8. What kind of legs can fit in those size 6 jeans!) I just got the tan belt and I sooo love it for P316!!

Thanks to the 20% discount on all items because was a good treat for all the girls. What's good about the Rockwell branch is that it's the only branch with shoes.
Cocktails were served courtesy of Dulcinea. As far as my memory serves me right, I tasted YUMMY chicken lollipops, sandwiches, brazo de mercedes, and slices of Sbarro cheese pizza. Ghettoness attacks me again this time! I was so hungry that when I saw the chicken lollipop being brought out by the waiter, I said in my most jologs voice and at the same time pointing to the tray "MANOK!!" Bwahahahahaha! I forgot that I was at this Dorothy Perkins event so I quickly contained myself and acted poised kuno! :) Wish ko lang the 2nd Avenue cameramen didn't capture that ghetto moment. heehee!
Though we didn't win any prizes that night, we were so happy with the lootbags we got! We held 2 bags! One was for the Terra Vega wine bottle and the other was the lootbag containing the September issue of Mega magazine, Dorothy Perkins foldable umbrellas, sample sizes of Ralph Lauren Always Romance and Diesel Pour Homme, L'oreal Elseve shampoo, and L'oreal White Perfect day cream. What more can we ask for??!!!
Do visit the Dorothy Perkins' flagship store in the 2nd floor Powerplant Mall, Rockwell and try on the latest season's fashion finds :)
