What I WORE: The VARSITY.

Hey STALKERS! (I mean readers..haha)
I have received some questions over my instagram account and via email about last week’s post about BROGUES..
question was  “Could Brogues pair any outfit?”
 Yes! It could definitely pair a lot of your outfits..

When purchasing SHOES my mind set would always be “WOULD I NEED THIS?”
Or is this just CRAP..
Ensuring that it MATCHES my ITEMS is always a MUST..
because that’s how you BUILD your CLOSET.. (which is a quality of a smart shopper.. so I think I’m a little smart LOL!)
well I went to work last weekend in this look..
something that is inspired by HARVARD students during the 60’s..

So for this look you would need the following..
WHITE SHIRT (Hanes.. It is so comfy)
VARSITY JACKET w/ a pop of color GREEN (Bangkok)
FADED GREY PANTS (Human) they have affordable yet good fitting jeans..
Accessorize with these items..
BRAIDED BLACK BELT (SM Department Store) they have great accessories that is crazy affordable..
WATCH (Swiss Expedition)
CLUTCH (Terranova)
GREY SOCKS (Oxygen)
POLARIZED AVIATORS (Fly Eyewear)

and BROGUES shoe (Bench)






NOTE:
I did a little research and found out that “BROGUE” is any shoe with perforations in it (those holes that you see in this shoe.. that’s it) and on the other hand WINGTIPS are shoes with that “W” like design on the toe cap. So this shoe that I bought is what you call a “FULL BROGUE” which is a combination of both. (thanks to perfectgentleman.com for the answers!)  





Please dont mind my tummy.. It's in progress lol!



Alright so going back.. (It was stormy..so excuse my hair for being soo messy haha..)
BROGUES would work on any outfit as long as it’s in NEUTRAL COLOR..
Like WHITE..
BLACK..
GREY..
Or BROWN..

this look works (for me...) because of the COLORS and RIGHT FIT..
If you want the color to pop then get NEUTRAL COLORED piesces like grey, white and black..
Just remember that what’s important is to “BE YOURSELF” all the time when you dress up..
BE YOUR OWN BRAND!

So that’s it for “What I WORE”..
Hope you learned something this  week guys..

Have a GREAT WEEK ahead STALKERS!

What I WORE: “JERSEYS & BROGUES"

Gone are the days when JERSEYS are only worn inside the court when you play BALL..
I remember the days when I’m all sweaty wearing those JERSEY shirts back in high school..
Now JERSEYS are re-imaged into something that’s with a little more SWAG..
It’s COMFY but at the same time it’s LOW MAINTENANCE..   
WASH and WEAR..
No need to IRON..
Perfect for the WEEKEND GETAWAY..

WARNING:
Jersey’s wont absorb your SWEAT and since It’s quite HUMID here in the country then you might want to consider wearing an INSIDE SHIRT..



So for today’s look we need a  JERSEY shirt.. (TOPMAN)
I bought this from their CRAZY mid-year SALE about a month ago..
Then DENIM pants (HUMAN)..

Black LEATHER BROGUES (BENCH)..
I saw these from their instagram account and I knew from that point that I wanted them..
my brown brogues are getting a little old and worn so I knew that this purchase will do wonders for my closet..

you could use this pair for your FORMAL GET-UP in the OFFICE..

CASUAL LOOK in the CAMPUS..

and your STREET STYLE outfit on WEEKENDS..



Then ACCESSORIES (to add a touch of DETAILS..)
such as BAG (METRO)..
a BLACK CAP..
bold WRIST WATCH.. (JAPAN)
and PRINTED SOCKS.. (MEMO)







and as I always say I try to make everything MINIMAL by not putting TOO MUCH COLORS..
I just went around the palette of BLUE.. BLACK.. and WHITE.. 

So that’s it guys for this week’s “WHAT I WORE”..
If you have questions / suggestions you may email me at lrfaundo06@gmail.com

Have fun dressing up STALKERS!

a STALKER’s blog: “CHANGES & COMFORT ZONES”




We often get SCARED of CHANGES..
because we’re used to being around our COMFORT ZONES..
when we we’re BORN, our mother’s WOMB was our first ever COMFORT ZONE..
(learned this from BO Sanchez..)
imagine your FOOD already chewed for you..
the PERFECT TEMPERATURE inside your mom’s tummy..
It’s like PARADISE..
but the moment that the BABY gets EVICTED inside the mother’s WOMB..
CHANGE happens..
you would suddenly FEEL the COLD temperature in the operating room..
BRIGHT LIGHTS that seems too harsh for your SMALL EYES..
then that TAP on your DELICATE BUTT by that NURSE..
It is just TERRIBLE..
that’s when we START CRYING..
but as HOURS..
DAYS..
and WEEKS pass by..
we get USED to that CHANGE..
and that’s when we START GROWING..
that’s my POINT..

“In order for you to GROW you have to get out of that WOMB and EXPERIENCE CHANGE”

Let me tell you a story of our HAIR STYLIST named JOVY..
Jovy has been a hairstylist of a famous salon (in the south..) for 18 years..
most of that salon’s clients are coming back because of his amazing SERVICE..
he can do crazy TRANSPORMATIONS with your hair..
and this is why the clients love him..
but one day he had a terrible argument with his boss due to some misunderstandings..
which led a TERRIBLE week of BAD VIBES..
and as he reached his PATIENCE limit..
he decided to QUIT..
his wife got FURIOUS because of the fact that they have KIDS to FEED..
and this SCARED them both so much..
but instead of WORRYING..
JOVY decided to START on his OWN..
he opened up a small SALON near their place..
which ATE up all their SAVINGS..
the first couple of weeks are the SCARIEST part of this drastic CHANGE..
but a month and a half later he got surprised that most of his LOYAL customers started calling him for his SERVICE..
and the WORD of MOUTH of how good he is with what he does spread slowly around..
and SLOWLY his business STARTED GROWING..
Now JOVY is finally HAPPY because he’s no longer SCARED..
He’s much STRONGER now..
more CONFIDENT..
all because he got out of his COMFORT ZONE..

Sometimes GOD gives us crazy TRIALS..
not because of PUNISHMENT..
but because he wants us to LEARN..
and to GROW..
just remember that TRIALS would always AIM to STRENGTHEN us..
makes us CLOSER to our FAMILIES and FRIENDS..
and most importantly it makes us CLOSER to GOD..

Enjoy your AMAZING MONDAY Stalkers!

What I WORE: Pastels & Fire Trees

I have not gone to JAPAN..
or have seen any real CHERRY BLOSSOMS..
that is the reason why these FIRE TREES are such a fascination to me..
So I told myself I’d have to get a “WHAT I WORE” shoot somewhere with a FIRE TREE on the background.. haha
and yes we've found a couple of trees near the parking lot somewhere in the metro..

So let’s talk about this LOOK for today..
I’m not fond of too much COLORS..
you’d notice that I’m usually inclined with more NAVY BLUE’s..
BLACK and WHITE..
and DENIM..
just because these colors are easier to manage..
they don’t attract too much dirt..

but PASTELS?

It is crazy to maintain these types of colors..
So I got inspired by KEN.. haha
Yeah KEN of BARBIE that day..




So I chose to wear this PINK COAT (Penshoppe) over a WHITE SHIRT..
Paired with this BLUE SWIM SHORTS (Cotton On) and BLUE GREEN ESPADRILLES (H&M)..
and some ACCESSORIES such as this BROWN LEATHER NECKLACE (Bangkok) and BROWN LEATHER BAG (Marikina)..
I still tried to manage the whole look by keeping the main colors between BLUE, PINK and NEUTRALS such as white and brown to make it more united..
that’s the exact principle that I apply over STALK’s magazine covers..
each color should complement the whole package..

Anyway that’s it for today’s LOOK..
the KEY to looking GOOD is knowing what will look good in you..
so you have to TRY and TRY until you find your own STYLE..

BTW I made a new banner for our Facebook page..

A STALKER’s BLOG: PERFECTION - a DISEASE of a NATION.

I recently saw the video of Beyonce’s visual album entitled “PRETTY HURTS”..
and it is true that every music video is an EXPERIENCE..
and it took me back to the CORE REASON on why I’ve created STALK..
It is because I want my PHOTOGRAPHY to SPEAK to the my AUDIENCE..
I want the readers to realize that everyone has that unique BEAUTY that should be exposed..
so that I could NEUTRALIZE what is being shown by our MEDIA of how BEAUTY is defined..
that you should be WHITE skinned to be BEAUTIFUL..
that you should have LIPS like Angelina Jolie..
that you should have a BODY like Channing Tatum..
just to be called BEAUTIFUL.

I remember back in high school when I was as huge as a cow and I felt UGLY..



I started looking at magazines and I felt more UGLY..
I started noticing my NOSE..
my EARS..
my LIPS..
and my huge FACE..
and this is when DEPRESSION starts to kick in..
and this is when PARENTS should start to come in..
and help their kids realize that they are BEAUTIFUL..
so that they would not let the WORLD dictate who is BEAUTIFUL and WHO’s NOT..
but what if the PARENTS are too BUSY to notice?
and what if the FRIEND of your child is either BULIMIC or ANOREXIC?
that’s when the PROBLEM starts..
and I’ve also faced this issue back in college..
(yeah I was a victim of this too..)
there was a time that I felt really really FAT even if in REALITY I’m already beyond THIN..
I was aiming for PERFECTION..
and the crazy thing is that NO ONE is PHYSICALLY PERFECT..
even Kim Kardashian is INSECURE..
that is why I believe that..
“BEAUTY is in the EYE of the BEHOLDER”

here are some of the back issues of STALK which tried to change how BEAUTY is defined..

EXOTIC is BEAUTIFUL
Plus Size is SEXY
Pregnant Women are HOT
The BATTLE for GAY RIGHTS on Naked TRUTH
Being DIFFERENT is OK


Last week my boss asked me this..
The exact question in the BEYONCE video..

“What is your aspiration in LIFE?”

This question was in my head the whole time after watching the video..

 as a PHOTOGRAPHER /Editor In Chief of STALK I would want to CHANGE the way that we SEE things..

I want to showcase DIVERSITY in BEAUTY..

I’d like to collaborate with people who are could INSPIRE my READERS to be BETTER..

not to CHANGE themselves but to help bring out the BEST in them..

I’d like to show people how FASHION could help bring out the BEST in us..

I ASPIRE to help PROMOTE our LOCAL films..

I’d like to show everyone how BEAUTIFUL LIFE is..

and how much BEAUTIFUL  it could be when GOD is in our LIVES..

I’d like to FIGHT for GAY RIGHTS just because we are GOD’s wonderful CREATION..

and all of these I’d like to do in GOD’s TIME..

now my question and challenge to everyone is..  

“What is your aspiration in LIFE?”

we are all created in the LIKENESS of GOD..

we  are built for GREATNESS..

don’t WASTE it..

GO out there and show the WORLD who you TRULY are..

and I’m sure our FATHER will pave the way for you.



may GOD BLESS us all.
Enjoy your THURSDAY STALKERS!

STALK PORTRAITS: ROCK and ROLL PUNK

I met this young girl in a famous bookstore last year in the south..
It took me a while to actually talk to her and get her to pose for an actual stranger..
I just don't want to look like a complete stalker (which ironically the title of my mag) haha..
it's just that not everyone can pull off this METALLIC SKIRT.. 
so It gave me that extra urge to go and use my convincing powers on her (plus i need it for a project that I was working on back then for a fashion magazine)  
and I can't seem to remember the rest.. haha
sorry.. anyway I promised that I will post this on my blog..  

So here it is.. :)




Have fun dressing up STALKERS!
