How do you dress up a plain, white, V-neck shirt? With a scarf? A colourful choker? Dangling earings? If I had to answer this question some 5 years ago, I would say all of the above. These days though (ok fine, the last half decade) my wardrobe has leaned towards the classics and less costume jewelry. I have been investing on pearls, gems, leather and neutral makeup. These must haves (pretty much) dictate my 9-5 look.
my happy Friday stash
If I have to ID the items I frequently shuffle around my boudoir, I’m afraid I’m left with just lipsticks (hello too many reds) and perfume. I recently received the third installment of the pureDKNY fragrance range called A Drop of Rose and I’m over the moon.
I’d say the timing couldn’t be more perfect since it’s already summer and I’m trying to shy away from heavier musks. A Drop of Rose took me by surprise because it’s nothing like the old fashioned, lola levels (I just had to type it out because I cannot say this in person heehee) floral EDT/EDP. To me, it smells like a freshly bloomed white or pink rose — simple, classic, soft and elegant. Exactly the peg I want to sport, hopefully I’ll get there soon.
Just like A Drop of Verbana and A Drop of Vanilla, A Drop of Rose (through its partnership with CARE) endeavors to make and impact on improving the financial future of women, one drop at a time. By purchasing its rose ingredient from local Turkish farmers (the majority of whom are women), pureDKNY’s already taken a step to help secure long-term rose production in Isparta.
pureDKNY A Drop of Rose is now available in all Rustan’s Department Store. It comes in two sizes: 50ml (Php 3500) and 100ml (Php 4900).
