Charmed by Chimes

Even if I was born and raised in Manila and enjoy the fast-paced urban lifestyle, I can still see why plenty of my friends choose to stay outside of Metro Manila. They often tell me life is so much simpler back in their provinces–less traffic, less pollution, less stress. Sounds close to perfect, right? So why do they keep coming back to Manila though? As if in chorus, they almost always answer the same thing–“we need to shop.”

Ask any of your fashionable friends based outside of Metro Manila, you’d be hard-pressed to find one that doesn’t travel far and beyond just to shop. This is what Davao’s Yap family aims to change. With the opening of Chimes Specialty Boutique’s newest branch at Felcris Centrale, Davaoeños now have a shopping haven for unique finds and high quality items from both international and local brands. The one-stop lifestyle store carries brands such as Shiseido, Clinique, Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, Ipanema, Grendha, Santas towels and linens, Longchamp, Maureen Disini, Charina Sarte, Regilioso, K & Company, Florence, Aranaz, Jo of Joyce Orena and Chimes’ own clothing line, Canvas. Let me be clear, these are just SOME of the brands Chimes offers. I actually got to attend Chimes’ opening so I know for a fact that they’ve got more in store. I even shopped a bit for myself. I mean can you blame me? Pretty selections, helpful staff, luxurious interiors–all too inviting to resist.

Check out the photos below to see a glimpse of what went down during Chimes’ opening night!

    Wow the store looks so luxurious and glamorous! :)
    And yes, i totally agree with your friends Camille :P Haha living in the more suburban area is quieter and less stressful, but the city always offers so much things to do, like shopping and eating! <3
    You look so pretty as always! Loving the dress you wore!

    XO, Elizabeth
