Daily Luxe: Grubbies

January 5, 2012

I have a confession to make: I'm nuts about Grubbies!



Grubbies, not to be confused with anything edible, is the answer to my long term plea. You see my usual day is composed of three (major) activities: PR event/dinner with friends - work - gym. Granted that I can get away with business casual for the first activity, I stick with the same outfit the first half of the day. I just change accessories and shoes et viola! I'm ready for my next agenda.



All my fave colours in one rack! <3


My wardrobe requires low-maintenance fabric + easy breezy cuts for me to have zero fashion constraints as I (try to) keep up with this rather demanding and fast-paced lifestyle. I have an illegal heap of plain jersey tops and dresses because they're light and generally possess clean lines. I guess that's what drew me to check out Grubbies -- it has pretty much everything my style and function palette demands.






High wearability and simple chic are the driving forces behind the label, whose debut collection of fresh, captivating looks place the emphasis on fun in functional. Everyday pieces are "made for action", as its cheeky campaign proudly proclaims, in light, low-maintenance jersey, French terry, pique, and Dri-fit. Trend-transcending silhouettes are beautifully conceived, clean, and figure-flattering.


Inspiring in a real world way, Grubbies advocates local sourcing and is lovingly Filipino made. Tops can be snapped up at PhP550-700 and dresses at PhP990-1,200.


Ultimately what these clothes celebrate is life and style coexisting casually, harmoniously, and to great effect. For women out there working, playing, just plain living; who want look good doing all these things and that it's all sooo easy—this is your new dirty secret.

Choosing my first piece was quite a task. Do I get a top, a cover-up, or another dress? I settled with a charcoal gray number called Amina in medium. The fit is perfect, it's wildly comfortable, and it flatters all the right places in one go. I love how it looks great with either a pair of boat shoes, ballet flats, or heck even flip flops. :)  It's also available in violet as pictured below.



Grubbies is available online at Catalogue 63. If you see anything in their Facebook page that you like that's not in the former site, do send them a message (09064932930) for stock inquiry.
