I’ve seen and heard of this boutique a lot of times and probably been there for few times, but I never bought anything there. My first impression was– EXPENSIVE. As a fashionista, I don’t only consider the appearance and quality of my outfits; I also consider my budget in buying my clothes and accessories.
Last month, we were damn busy that I didn’t really have the time to shop for our school’s big event.
It’s just recently when we had a pageant in our school that we, English teachers, had to buy either black, silver or gold dress for the said event. I finally got the chance to own a classic black dress from Karimadon because my co-teacher informed us that she bought a dress around P500 there. If I didn’t know about the price tag, I wouldn’t have been there! I never thought that it would be that affordable. I saw the dresses- they are in different categories. You can have the brand-new dresses or gowns at around P3k to P4k. There are discounted dresses (20% to 50% off). Because I was in a tight budget, I settled for the discounted items. I actually bought two dresses- the first one was meant to be worn in the pageant (worth P1,800) and the black tube dress for the MNHS Socialization Night (worth P380).

It was really worth the price because I got praises from the people around me that I looked great in my dress– it was simple yet elegant and most of all AFFORDABLE. As a satisfied customer, I went there again after a week for my cousin’s debut. I was supposed to be one of the emcees so I decided to buy another one. The latest I bought was too simple but i found it classy. There are no diamond studs or other stones to adorn the dress, just an off-white lace and my body to give shape to the long fitted dress. I always believe that no matter how simple your dress is, the thing that matters is how you will bring life into it.
I bought the dress for less than P2000!

The surprise I got the following day after the MNHS Socialization night was an award- who would’ve thought I would won Miss Fashionista for Grade 8? I was not too confident of my figure yet because it’s still holiday season and I would be dead serious in losing weight AFTER New Year. Wow, this is the start of my inspiration (to get a summer-ready body).
To those who are looking for formal dreses/gowns, I highly recommend Karimadon. They have branches in Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall and Robinsons Metro East.
