In recent days, I saw the two below fashionistas walking along the Paseo in front of Cafeteria Manila while San Geraldo and I sat trying to enjoy our coffee. I’m glad my breakfast had already settled. I’m also glad they liked their outfits. (I assume they liked their outfits.) To be fair, I thought I’d share some of our own early ensembles. San Geraldo and I — along with our sisters — defined the style of our generation. (When clicked, the photos make an even grander fashion statement.)
