Also available were unique dresses by Max Azria (Herve Leger, BCBG), exclusive perfumes by Clive Christian, Bond No. 09 and Tom Ford, plus fabulous shoes by Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Christian Louboutin and lots more.

    All I kept seeing was Bozimo, Bozimo, Bozimo… Bia, who are they now?
    Also, is Tombra a common name in PH or does the girl look different in all the pictures?
    See all those guys smiling… They are probably crying on the inside with all the money they’ll spend before leaving the store. Smart ladies made sure to come with their men. Haha… Anyway, Congrats to the shop owner

  • winnie August 17, 2011 at 11:32 pm
