If you've been following my Twitter and Instagram, you'll know that I was at the Zalora headquarters last Saturday for the Style Buy Blogger Challenge. Together with a handful of widely-read Philippine bloggers, we got to preview and personally testify to the super easy, and dangerously addictive experience of online shopping at Zalora.

At the Z loft, we got to meet, greet and hang out with some of the Zalora team. I have to say they're quite a fun bunch! And though I can only imagine the kind of stress they're under, working long hours to ensure they have the best site and service possible, I get the feeling they all enjoy what they're doing. As in they still have the energy to dance to the lively pop music playing at the event, even though it was a Saturday night at work! With this kind of dedication, it's no wonder that the buzz surrounding Zalora has been growing sure and steady. And what's not to love? Imagine three hour delivery within Metro Manila. THREE HOURS. Crazy right? Like you just ordered McDonald's for lunch. And if you don't have a credit card, no problem. You can just pay with cash upon delivery of your order. What I really admire is their dedicated customer service hotline, which means you can contact them via phone, email or chat anytime from 7am to 1am. Trust me, Zalora will change the face of Philippine shopping.
Here are some snaps from that fun Saturday shopping night:
|Paulo Campos III, Zalora co-founder and managing director, tells us why Zalora is all that|
|Marketing Manager Arianne, and buyers Mark and Kat (who incidentally, is co-owner of Ylla shoes!)|
|Spotted: a Martina-Martina piece on Aissa of Drowning Equilibriums. Yay!|
|This was supposed to be a funny face shot (I obviously missed the cue!)|
|I bought these Wade raffia peep-toe pumps with my Zalora credits. And to think I actually tried them on a few days ago. Uuuy, meant to be!|
|Met Alyssa Lapid, who sat across from me. She bought Zoo's Wonder Woman tee, which I also loved!|
|Also bought this futuristic Gold Dot clutch, another popular item. Two other bloggers got the same clutch. It's bigger than I thought it would be, which makes me like it even more!|
|The clutch went so well with my entire outfit that I ended up switching my leather clutch for this. Excuse the wayward strand of hair poking out! Outfit credits: Top; black cuff, Mango. Dress, Joel Escober (you've seen this on my wedding post—in fairness, it's quite versatile!). Shoes, Charles and Keith. Studded leather bracelet and ring, bought at a bazaar. Gem elastic bracelet, The Landmark.|
