Comfort and cost, not the brand, are Danica Sotto's major considerations before buying a bag or a pair of shoes.

There are days when Danica Sotto-Pingris likes to dress up, but most of the time, she's happy with her "shirt and shorts" combo.

As far as fashion is concerned, comfort is a major consideration to this mom of two.

"Very ano, e. Gusto ko yung simple lang saka nakakagalaw," she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exclusive interview at the opening of District 8 restaurant-bar, where her husband Marc Pingris is a co-owner.

She resumed, "Since ako naghahatid-sundo sa mga bata, hindi ako makaporma na talagang dapat comfy lagi yung suot ko.

"Kasama ako sa pagsusundo even when there’s a driver."

When asked if she has a collection of bags and shoes, the eldest daughter of Vic Sotto and his ex-wife Dina Bonnevie shook her head.

Since she got married, the lady has not bought a bag for herself.

"Hindi. Hindi pa yata ako buimibili ng bag para sa sarili ko. Puro regalo.

"Regalo ni Marc, regalo ni daddy, yung ganyan."

The most expensive bag in her closet was given by her dad.

"Pinakamahal kong bag? Siguro yung Celine na regalo ni daddy."


Not that she's kuripot, Danica just feels she can spend the money on something more important.

"Praktikal lang ako kasi parang iniisip ko kasi minsan, yung ipambibibili ko, parang ang dami ko nang mabibiling ibang gamit.

"Siguro nung nagkaanak din ako, di ba.

"Saka siyempre pag nakikita ko yung, pag may nakikita akong ibang tao na, mas maganda na yung...hindi naman siguro kuripot, praktikal."

But she does not really look at the brand, and is not the type who buys right away.

"I mean pag feeling ko naman may magandang sapatos pag alam ko o medyo mahal ‘to pero kumportable siya saka tatagal, binibili ko naman.

"Pero matagal ako magdesisyon.

"Hindi ako yung tipong, ‘Omigosh, gusto ko yung bag na ‘yan, akin na ‘yan.’"
