SUNLIFE ORGANICS

     

07.10.2016

Where was SunLife Organics when I was in college?! This really would have helped during my ‘Freshman 15’ phase that lasted my   entire first, and partly second, year at Pepperdine. What used to be a Mexican taqueria back in the day (you can just imagine how many cheese quesadillas I inhaled…) is now a […]

Son of a Gun

     

17.09.2016

No trip to LA is complete, for me, without a visit to one (or two, or three…) of Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo’s establishments. I was in the City of Angels last August when my brother and I took my parents to Son of a Gun; it would be their first time. Not ours. We […]

EL NIDO

  

04.06.2016

Hello, June bugs! I’m hoping to skip over explaining my hiatus since February and just focus on making the next six months worth your time here at Patti’s Palette. Let’s start with the mid-year trip I recently took with the Herrera’s. My dearest mother-in-law just turned 65 (don’t worry, she and all of us, are […]

FORME IN NYC S/S 2016

     

02.03.2016

Surprise!! We shot both Holiday 2015 and Spring/Summer 2016 in the Pink Apple last year. Here are some of my favourite images from what’s currently out on the racks in ForMe stores… Some of this season’s shopping musts come in soft denims, dandelion yellows and breezy ruffles. Do yourself a favour and grab a couple of […]

13.01.2016

It was around this time in 2015 that I posted my first entry announcing the 2.0 version of Patti’s Palette, a ‘relaunch’ if you will. One year later, I am still here -I made it 365 days in the blogosphere, yay!-  and now revealing a first for my site… A video *gasp* Instead of taking […]

JON & VINNY’S

     

02.01.2016

I love Jon & Vinny’s so much. This joint fast became a favorite for Jon and me in 2015. Chris first took us in August – we fell in love – so I made sure we returned to 412 N Fairfax when we came back to LA in October. Here are some of the things […]

FORME IN NYC II

     

04.12.2015

Hello, Upper East Siders! I definitely had some Blake and Serena moments while shooting the latest #ForMeInNYC campaign. My loose, polished waves and the hair bands and barrettes topped it off for me. Not to mention, we were in fact shooting in the UES. Gossip Girl always had a knack for making fall in New […]

CHATEAU MARMONT

     

27.11.2015

Oh, the Chateau. The iconic hotel along the Sunset Strip. While you may have read -or witnessed, perhaps?!- about Hollywood celebrity trouble and mischief at Marmont, I have yet to go after sun down so I don’t really have any misbehaviors to share. The only rule I’m guilty of breaking is taking photos of my […]

FORME IN NYC I

     

18.11.2015

Homegrown Pinoy brand. Campaign shoot. New York City. Is this real life?! Fortunately for me, while grinning from ear to ear, I can     answer, “YES.” ForMe has a flair for these major fashion capitals; the first was Paris and a year later, the Big Apple. Our talented all Filipino team [PH represent!] picked […]

CHARLIE BIRD

     

14.11.2015

Chris, Jon and myself stepped into Charlie Bird NYC and found ourselves walking in to the opposite of an informal lunch we were searching for. Turns out, it wasn’t necessarily an awful thing. This was our free day as mom and dad ventured into Woodbury; the ‘kids’ -that’s us!- opted out of premium outlet shopping. Intending to […]
