Nolita Dinner Date with TOMS

No Tom is not a guy. Haha. Ana and I went to the very exclusive (as in we only realized how exclusive it was when we got there) TOMS casual get together event last May 29 at NOLITA, Boni Highstreet Central. Segway: Nolita is also owned by Patrick of Ponti and Borough--ikaw na talaga Pat!!! Haha. Anyway, when Ana and I got there we only saw like 10 press people: some from Stylebible, some stylists plus Papa V as in Victor Basa! There was no reg table or welcoming committee so we decided to wait for the PR person to approach us. We really thought the magazine peeps were only interviewing Papa V for a feature or something. That's how intimate it was. Haha. Anyway, Sugar finally saw us and led us to the table where the others were. Super dyahe but super fun:) They just presented the TOMS story (which you all already know, 1 shoe for 1 child) and then capped off the night with food, drinks and stories. :) Good vibes. :) Here are photos starting with what I wore (sorry no makeup na naman hehe)

Nita Clothing cutout dress, House of Luxe necklace, Millie's Thrifted shoes

Here are photos from the event!

Sugar of TOMS showed us a video (which of course touched our hearts) and explained their mission vision:)

Thanks again TOMS Philippines for the wonderful dinner and the inspiring stories.:) Hope Ana and I could volunteer soon!:)

TOMS was borne out of a simple idea – a desire to help others. In 2006, American traveleler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found that they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS Shoes, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. To date, TOMSand our giving partners have given over two million pairs of new shoes to children in 40 different countries – including the Philippines – all over the world.
TOMS is available in NOTHING BUT WATER stores.
