Vintage trade signs … my new obsession October 21, 2007

Its fun how one discover something new to obsess upon. It was Mico who introduced me to this vintage trade signs. I soooo love them. I got my first 1960’s authentic trade sign the other day. It is a Robin Hood Hair Pomode I immediately displayed it at the store for others to enjoy too.. If someone gives me a cool offer… maybe I’ll sell it… maybe….

All the names of the Coochi Lala collection starts with a Coochi. From Coochi Tulle, Coochi Dorothy, Coochi Andie etc.. Now we have Coochi Mika. This way its easy for me to track.

I really love this collection. My mom is painstakingly helping me put the lovely vintage fabric together to form a “scrapwork made in heaven” dress. I got tons of interesting fabric. Fabric which were gift from our famous local designer friends. From old dresses which I never had the guts to sell before because I just love the fabric. This is the first batch of the Mika collection under the brand Coochi Lala.

Keep in mind that this are one of a kind pieces therefore you will never bump into anyone with exactly the same dress. Don’t you just love that..

Frida Fringes.. something to check out. August 10, 2007

As I was rummaging through my closet of beads, chains, charms, headpieces, straps etc.. looking for a new inspiration. I came across something interesting. My staff knows that I have the tendency to hoard, collect things that I feel got potential and oftentimes I forget all about it. I had this neckpiece for a almost a year now, I suddenly decide to make something out of it… Meet Frida, Frida fringes…

I love how the fringes falls to your neck.. It will surely dress up you simple outfit.. just don’t forget the cleavage power. =) Remember, I only have 3 limited edition pieces.

Neckpiece sold for P899

Limited edition .. I am not plastic.. bag July 29, 2007

I enjoyed making my own ensemble of the I’am not plastic bag. Or should I say, I wanted to add more of “irene’s closet” touch to the Edgy Ecology bag. Since the store has been known to sell unique pieces and not mass produced, I thought I just had to make it more personalize. Check out the first batch of the I am not plastic bag with a twist. We just displayed it today and luckily we sold 2 at once.
The I am not plastic bag, limited edition will also be available at Schu, Glorietta 3 by Wed Aug 1. Come grab you limited edition bag… and help eliminate plastic in a stylish way.

“Play a bit” necklaces collection out now July 28, 2007

fdAside from it being my inspiration for my Coochilala logo… I got so into it that I decided to “play a bit” and work on a full necklace collection made of scrabble letters and bingo chips. It is something new, expect it to be a true conversational piece. So to those who plan to copy this again… Once you finish doing your own version I’ll be out with something new … as always.

I really had a hard time finding the right bingo chips… and scrabble letters. But I am so determine to come out with this collection that I had to go to 8 bookstores and office supply stores just to find the right one, when finally I did… I had to figure out a way to make it into a charm.. Enjoy this collection while it last for I am not making a whole bunch.. It is a limited engagment =)
