Re­live the ‘80s in this af­ter-hours shoe-shop­ping fete.

“This is re­ally too much fun!” model Yanna Cow­per quipped while edit­ing the #SOTD she took in our tin­sel photo booth. It was a throw­back to the ’80s as we hosted a very Pretty in Pink prom-themed af­ter-hours shop­ping party with Parisian Shoes and Bags. We had the fourth floor of SM Makati all to our­selves, and we dressed it up with bal­loons, con­fetti and an abun­dance of sil­ver tin­sel scat­tered through­out the shelves, which were laden with our cu­rated picks from Parisian’s lat­est styles. Our guests ar­rived in their fun party frocks, from frou-frou skirts to bold and brightly col­ored dresses. But it was Kiana Va­len­ciano and Lau­ren Reid, mem­bers of Parisian’s new Style Squad, who re­ally turned heads: Kiana was in a metal­lic pale pink suit, while Lau­ren was in an aqua­ma­rine se­quined tulle dress that she paired with gold heels and lace socks. At 9 p.m., Parisian Shoes Se­nior Mer­chan­dis­ing Man­ager An­gela Abe showed their lat­est look­book reel fea­tur­ing Kiana and Lau­ren, while guests eyed the Per­spex-heeled san­dals and ring-han­dled purses to take home. As soon as we dropped the mic, the girls scat­tered across the shoe sa­lon to try on pairs by the dozen. Issa Press­man strut­ted in boots with her friend Marga Ber­mudez, aka Marga On the Mic; blog­gers Far­rah Espina and So­phie Ramos took turns pos­ing on the bal­loon-strewn floor; while model Tessa Bur­ton got cre­ative with the sil­ver dis­coball or­na­ments, us­ing them as ear­rings for her selfie. By 11 p.m., the shop­ping had ended, but the photos en­sued by the tin­sel cur­tains. The next day saw a flood of #OOTDS and snaps from the night—re­ceipts of a great party we’d love to throw again.

Prom kween: Model Jodilly Pen­dre ar­rived in a tiered Jot Losa lace dress that had ev­ery­one’s eyes on her. “I’m sorry I went all out!” Jodilly joked, but a look this mem­o­rable needs no apol­ogy.

Call it a fas­ci­na­tion for the John Hughes flick Pretty in Pink. We asked the gals to come dressed for an ‘80s-style prom.
