It was a fun affair last week when Ipanema launches the Colorful Sea Collection endorsed by none other than the Brazilian goddess and world's most successful model, Gisele Bundchen!
The collection talks not only about hip design, high quality and chic style but Ipanema's model, Gisele Bundchen is a devoted environmentalist who actively adheres to her role as UN ambassador by using each GB collection to raise funds and awareness for specific eco-causes. The 2010 "Colorful Sea" collection supports the preservation of Brazil's turtle population as well as the welfare of our own local marine life. Now that's beauty IN AND OUT!
The event was held at White Space, a lovely place for events to be held. Cute Ipanema sandals for all ages were showcased as people got busy checking out the new collection. I met and chatted with a couple of bloggers as the nice waiters serve hors d'oeuvres and drinks on the side.
We were then guided to the function room and was greeted with wonderful table setting. Jelly fishes couldn't be any cuter! Look closely on the photos and you can see gorgeous Ipanema sandals as decors!
Via Mare Restaurant served the food for the night and there are desserts to fill in the tummy! I can't forget their blueberry cheesecake! Up until this very moment!
The event started with welcoming address from the lovely emcee Anne Joy Asis or DJ Anne of wave 89.1 (thanks reader Rhea for her name), I can't help but stare at her Ipanema Thong Fem in Ivory White. Matches her peachy pink dress which made her look relaxed and free!
A welcome address from the Managing Director of ELRO (Exclusive Distributor of Ipanema, Grendha and Rider) Mr. Francisco "Patxi" Elizalde.
Talks about our local environmental issues was done by the Vice Chairman, President/CEO of WWF - Philippines Mr. Jose Ma. Lorenzo Tan. Water conversation was stressed and we were all taught to start doing something to save our environment. Everything starts from our own and we should do something real quick to save our natural resources!
The lovely dance troupe with a fabulous, breathe-taking dance number from The Ballet Philippines. I enjoyed the dance number and enjoyed starting at their Ipanema sandals as they change the it base on the theme! I may not a ballet dance expert, but one thing I know for sure... it is VERY difficult and challenging to do a complicated dance steps on sandals! So bravo to the Ballet Philippines!
It was great seeing familiar faces and new faces in this Bloggers' Event
I'm holding the Thong Fem in Ivory White as Shen said it's my personality and she thought of me when she saw it! :)
This was my first GB Ipanema sandals bought to me by my then boyfriend, now hubby, Keith ! I've used this so many times for the past 2 years. I guess its time for it to relax...you can tell by the photo that it still looks new and the print didn't fade!
Now that I own the The Colorful Sea "Thong Fem" in Beige Gold, I will definitely alternate this on "relaxing" days, which I personally believe was made to exude pure class and grace, adding an extra touch of tropic sophistication to my wardrobe! According to Ipanema, it's perfect for casual strolls or romantic evenings. For me, it'll be perfect for those long walks with the dogs, and of course, shopping!
But man! I can't help but long for Ipanema GB CS Thong Special Edition Fem in Grey Silver! It's made with real Swarovski! The bling is definitely in!!!
Do you own an Ipanema sandals? I did! And it lasts me a long time! I have weak legs and feet so comfort is definitely number one for me, I am glad companies are coming up with more fashionable and comfortable sandals for people like me!
Keep smilin'Stay Happy!
