When it comes to shoes and bags, Lorna Tolentino says she is grateful to have generous friends.
"For my shoes, lagi akong nireregaluhan ng Flawless. Sa bags naman, lagi akong binibigyan ng Belo. I'm so blessed!"
Lorna happily told this to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview last October after she signed a new contract with GMA-7.
She says, among all the gifts she’s received over the years, she finds it hard to pick out her favorites.
“Lahat naman kasi maganda, e, saka special dahil siyempre regalo,” she said with a smile.
But she did note, however, that "I love Gucci,” referring to the Italian luxury brand.
"Hindi naman actually dahil sa brand, e, but it's really comfortable," she explains.
"Depende kasi sa paa mo, e. Kung saan ka talaga komportable, di ba?
"Ang hirap kasing humanap ng sapatos na magtatagal ka ng ilang oras na nakatayo, di ba? Lalo no na kung may heels!
"So minsan, talagang kahit sobra-sobra nang kalumaan iyong sapatos ko, pero kung iyon iyong komportable sa akin, parang sulit na kahit gaano man siya kamahal. Nasusulit ko naman."
Even for her bags, Lorna finds the brand very much worth of its price because of its durability and timeless styles.
For other accessories like jewelry, Lorna says she doesn’t invest on them too much.
“I have really very few lang. And so, sometimes, iyon na lang iyong inii-style sa akin ng stylists, na they [show me] how to accessorize.
“Hindi ako mahilig talaga sa jewelry at sa mga accessories, e, so sila na iyong nag-ii-style no’n sa akin.”
