HOW A MODEL-ENTREPRENEUR HUNTS FOR BARGAINS
Rissa Mananquil-Trillo’s secret to great shopping discoveries
Every Filipino loves a good bargain. And we mean everyone. Even homegrown cosmetic brand Happy Skin’s Rissa Mananquil-Trillo. The trick though to this model-turned-entrepreneur’s value edits is finding versatility—from ensembles that go from day to night to lippies that double as a cheek tint. You see, the concept of bargain hunting is slowly being redefined from mere budget buys to actual investment pieces. Even with her casual choices, quality is still Rissa’s most important shopping statement, like donning a blush cotton sweater or cherry-colored rubber Birks, which she found at Ayala Malls The 30th. Don’t get us wrong, though. Even with her multiple roles and quick-paced lifestyle, she still finds time to indulge herself—with a slice of brazo or two.
