Parfois is pronounced par-fwa and means "sometimes" in French. Maybe it's a throwback to the fact the store houses trendy head-to-toe accessories that may or may not stand the test of time in terms of style, or sometimes, you just find that one item that makes your heart skip a beat. I know mine did, several times.
I was choosing between two sets of earrings (photo 2 & left set in photo 3). I adored the flower ones on both but wasn't sure of the others.
There were so many choices that it was kind of overwhelming. When I thought I found the pair(s) I wanted to get, I'd find a couple others on a different wall or shelf. Liz was Parfois' stylist for the day, however, and she helped me decide on what to get:
My final choice, Php379

Project Vanity readers got a gift from Parfois with any purchase, and mine was a lovely bag! You can bet it'll be lounging with me this weekend--it's perfect for the job.
These shoes reminded me of fireworks for some reason
Kisslock purses! J'adore. All a little under Php500 if I remember correctly
This bag is a bit too big, but the turquoise color and embossing was too pretty to ignore.
I'm not diligent in accessorizing. Most days, I just get away with a pair of earrings and a watch if I remember to put one on. The one thing I do bother to tote around, however, is a good scarf or shawl. I get cold easily and my collection of long, thick shawls are my lifelines. I haven't been bringing them around since it's too hot, but I think I found them a shorter, equally luxurious sister while in-store:
I sigh. Oh, and hello to NYX Chloe on my lips! First time I wore it out.
The scarf is 100% Indian silk and with feathers in two opposite corners. I loved how smooth and light it was! I didn't get it due to budget constraints at the time, though. :( I'm seriously thinking of coming back for it, or finding something similar.

Thank you to the Parfois team for a nice afternoon! And for tolerating me randomly taking pictures here and there, haha. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a branch further north *hint hint* :) Parfois stores may be found in Glorietta 4, SM Megamall, SM Southmall, and Abreeza Mall in Davao.
