Loalde has always been my mom's and aunt's favorite store. Their style and designs are very classy but not the kind that's too dressed up or too casual. They certainly offer the right feel for the accomplished woman, beautiful things I cant wear on a regular basis just yet. Finally they have decided to reach out to the young and hip generation (ehem! the likes of me!) as embodied in their brainchild Fish18.
I was lucky enough to get invites to Fish18's grand opening last December 10, 2010. I tagged along Mac, the new blogger for Style Cebu, because of her exquisite knack for anything fabulous. Seriously this girl has some fine tastes!

The store itself emits an old vibe that has quite a vintage taste in the air. Some of the fabrics used are from Loalde's collection dating as far back as 30 years. Despite the vintage feel, their wares are far from the boring old. They boast of apparels that showcase urban culture as seen from the the streets. I'm thinking sophisticated pop. But I'm not really one for details and descriptions. I only need to know that they have my size!
I was especially intrigued by their acid washed vests and cropped tees. I loved how they made patch worked clothes look elegant and stylish. The secret is the flawless craftsmanship impressed upon each item producing fine masterpieces that you can never pass as something mass produced.
They only make limited pieces so y'all better take your pick asap!
