“My ZALORA Wishlist”

Zalora made a beautiful stunning sound when it hit the Philippine shores this early first half of 2012. It aims to bring us a myriad of both well-known and emerging brands of Men/Women/Kids/ shoes, clothing, accessories, sports, home & living items. It promises ease, simplicity, fast home delivery and an amazing customer support experience. 

 I was a witness of how word about ZALORA PH spread quickly. They got their first order last Feb 29, and within 3 hours the buyer happily received her purchase.

 It then partnered with GROUPON giant Beeconomic for a 50% Summer Lovin' Deal. Pay only P999 for P2000 worth of items! ( It was a great bargain!) I was immediately enticed and was supposed to purchase one for myself, but it sold out immediately. My curiosity grew more!

Came March 12, Zalora came up with the style Buy Blogger Challenge! It featured fashion bloggers: Aisa Pac, Lexi Gancayco, Tracy Ayson, Alyssa Lapid, and Kaye Awatin (click on the links if you want to see what transpired during their visit at the Zalora headquarters, the Z-Loft to learn the ins and about of this budding new online store) I remember voting for Aisa Pac to win the challenge. It was then that I finally subscribed to receive Zalora's newsletters.

Instantly it became the talk-of the town! Huge brands added to their clientele. I Love Koi, Ray-Ban, Wacoal, Freeway, Ensemble, Crocs, Nike, Havaianas, XOXO, TOMS, VNC... the list goes on! Endless!

And just last May 9, Zalora once again created a buzz with its Grand Launch at the Skye Lounge. The event was attended by our country's fashion gurus, manila's elite, fashion bloggers alongside with its media partners.

I was able to score an invite through NuffnangPH. Thank you! It also paved the way for me to join this ongoing contest.

"My Zalora Wishlist"

Hi! Welcome to my Travel/Fashion blog CarmisCapriceI love travelling to beautiful places in beautiful clothes. 

Caprice simply refers to: Fancy. Whimsy. Impulse. Vagary. Humor. Eccentricity. Fickleness. Peculiarity. Notion.Quirk. Spleen. Ridiculousness. Gag. Fad. Contrariety. Jerk. Mood. Snap Decision.

I've spent countless nights viewing Zalora's website. It makes me feel like a giddy little girl in a candy store. That sudden rush of extremely excited feeling as if I just saw a rock star, a crush, a celebrity that makes one seem speechless or incompetent of acting normalOh! how I loved almost everything! 

Here goes my top 5 picks!

Since this also a travel blog, let me put a special twist to it!
 Alongside my Top 5 Beautiful Zalora Picks will be the Top 5 Beautiful Places on my to-go list before the year 2012 ends. It would be such a privilege (or yet, make it an honor!)  to wear these Zalora items on my travels! 

First on my list: Impressions Resorts World Manila. I will be celebrating my birthday a few days from now; June 6 to be exact. Hey, age is just a number and young is an attitude! (tee-hee) I want it to be as elegant, fancy and whimsical as possible. There's no other place I'd rather be!
