"This quarantine I was busy shopping not for me, per se, but for our home. My favorite fashion splurge was the artwork l won in my first auction from Nolisoli from Model/Photographer Joan Bitagcol. It is an image of a vintage black and white terno on a printed scarf set in an acrylic frame. I found a really good connection with the artwork and the artist that I just had to get another one. I now have two Joan Bitagcol art pieces sitting in my home office!"
"As an advocate of recycling and sustainable fashion, I recently purchased a pre-loved Yohji Yamamoto Hakama skirt from Carousell and a Jil Sander egg dress from Facebook's Marketplace. Both were real bargains and fashion pieces I know I will keep forever."

“I haven't made any fashion big splurges this quarantine. I gave birth 6 months ago and since then I have pretty much been wearing the same 5-10 outfits on rotation! If anything, it would be a bunch of cute dresses, coordinates, and jumpers for my kids on Minimalist Baby.”

"My biggest fashion splurge is definitely athletic wear. I've been spending a lot on loungewear from Alo Yoga with a free shipping bonus too! I find that when I dress up to workout regardless if I'm in the mood or not, I just end up working out and never regretting it after!"
“My biggest splurge this quarantine would have to be a gift to my sister. It’s been the longest time we’ve been apart so I decided to surprise her with a cashmere pillow from Chanel that can remind her of me while she’s in Cebu! She’ll be moving to a new home in a few months so I decided to give her an early house warming gift!”
