STALK FEATURE: Denim Overload

Denim is a classic type of fabric that is normally used as pants or what we call jeans..
It is a piece that was normally worn by men in the past who often works in construction..
Every decade REINVENTION of denim has always took place..
BLAZER..
SHIRT..
POLOS..
BAG..
DRESS..
JUMPER..
FADED..
COLORED..
And a lot more..

Denim is something that everyone would love to wear because it’s comfortable and low maintenance..
A year ago I worked on a streetstyle project with a glossy magazine and promised some folks that I will post it on my blog if ever that it or it won’t come out of the magazine..



So here are some shots of these cool kids rocked their pair of denim..


Look#1

HIGH WAIST SHORTS looks great when you pair it with heels.. 



Look#2

Rockin the denim shirt like Kanye. 


Look#3

Men's shorts paired with printed tanks. 

Look#4

Denim pants + tucked long sleeved chinos and leather shoes aint that bad after all.



Look#5

You can never go wrong with Dr. Martens paired with dark denim and printed men'spolo.




So that's it for our denim lookbook today STALKERS!
I hope that these looks did inspire you to get up and dress up..

EDITORIAL: “The BEAUTY Issue”

“BEAUTY is a CHARACTERISTIC that provides a perceptual experience of SATISFACTION or PLEASURE”

This is exactly how BEAUTY is defined by the dictionary..
It did not say that you have to be BLACK or WHITE..
TALL..
PRECKLED..
CURVY..
or THIN..
It did not even mention any specific detail on our FACE..
Yet a lot of us DON’T FEEL BEAUTIFUL inside and out..
Which does not make any SENSE..

A month and a half ago I saw this music video entitled “PRETTY HURTS”..
a perfect VISUAL of how PERFECTION is becoming a DISEASE of our NATION..
which I blogged about..
and It’s pretty fascinating that a lot of women felt the same way growing up..
and I knew from that point that our next issue should be about BEAUTY..
An issue that will INSPIRE women to embrace their INNER BEAUTY..

Then I had that VISION..
I knew that It’s time for my good friend KIM to be on the SPOTLIGHT..
I’ve known KIM since college and I’ve seen how she has evolved from the SIMPLE girl who does not seem to care about how she looks like to a woman of BEAUTY and SUBSTANCE..
She has been doing MAKE-UP for quite some time and has collaborated with STALK with some of our previous issues..   
She shared with us that did not feel BEAUTIFUL when she was growing up -- which greatly affected her SELF-ESTEEM..
Because of this thinking she thought that she would NOT be able to reach her DREAMS at all..
Looking back at how things we’re before she realized that she was NOT UGLY after all..
She adds..
“Di pa lang USO beauty ko nun”      


Kim feels that BEAUTY is a COMBINATION of a KIND HEART and INTELLIGENCE..
which is hard to maintain and needs to be BALANCED.
She shares that in order for her to CONQUER this mindset of being UNPRETTY she had to SURROUND herself with BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE with HUMBLE HEARTS..
POSITIVE MINDS and APPRECIATIVE FRIENDS..
And lastly your own FAMILY who would always PUSH you up no matter what..
And through this BEAUTY issue I am sure that GOD’s purpose is for KIM is to 

“INSPIRE others who refuse to believe in their TRUE BEAUTY”



Let’s get to know more about our COVER GIRL:

“I never imagined myself posing for a magazine like this”













This was our cover girl’s reaction when she saw the final layout for the cover.. (which ofcourse made us soo happy.. haha)
Beth is a common friend of mine through STALK’s previous plus size cover girl Daryl Brecio..  
I bumped into her again 27weeks ago during Daryl’s wedding..
Her radiant skin..
Beautiful face..
And inviting aura made us feel that she is a cover girl material..

Whenever I meet a potential model for STALK I would immediately have a VISION..
Yeah! Kinda like Proffessor X (X-men) or Alice (Twilight Saga).. haha!
I would have a view of the future..
my CONCEPT..
then the models FACE..
and then FIREWORKS happen!
This is exactly how it happened when I saw BETH..

So we asked her on her thoughts about BEAUTY..
She adds..

“Being beautiful is being confident.. it is showing who you really are without any pretentions, inhibitions and it’s all about ACCEPTING what GOD gave you”

BEAUTY SECRETS:
she maintains this perfect skin by going to a dermatologist atleast once a month..
Her BEAUTY must-haves would be a FACIAL WASH..
TONER..
And SUNBLOCK..
she also suggests HYDRATING your skin by drinking lots of water..
For MAKE-UP she prefers a CHEEK TINT, LIPBALM and FACE POWDER on a regular day..

So I hope that this issue may conclude that at the end of the day..

“YOU just got to be YOU”

Enjoy LIFE for you are GOD’s wonderful creation and that you are PATTERNED in his LIKENESS..

YOU will always be WONDERFUL!

May GOD bless us ALL!
Enjoy reading STALKERS!

What I WORE: Animal Print On Guys..

A couple of months ago I saw this friend of mine who was wearing a LEOPARD printed pants from Forever 21 men..
And I started to ask myself “Can I pull this look off?”..
My mind was screaming NOOOOOO.. haha
but I got challenged..
can men pull off an ANIMAL PRINT?
my answer today is YES..
but this is not the kind of animal print that women wear..
it’s more of a PHOTO PRINT..
Anyway let me show you instead..



I bought this TANK from a bazaar near my office for a very cheap price..
because I like the SWAG of this shirt and the QUALITY as well..





So for today’s look I’m wearing this dark blue SPORTY JACKET matched with TROUSERS with the same color..
then this CHEETAH PRINTED TANK..
paired the whole look with this cool RUBBER SHOES (Topman) ..
lastly I added some ACCESSORIES such as EYE GLASSES and a WRISTWATCH to complete the whole look..

So that’s it for this week’s what I wore feature..
Just remember that when using OVERPOWERING PRINTS on your outfit ensure that there are minimal stuff that’s going on with the whole look..
Like how I made sure that the jacket and pants are in the SAME SHADE and how the COLORS of the shoes won’t go against the whole point of this look..   

Have fun dressing up STALKERS!

VOLUME II ISSUE V: The BEAUTY issue.

Hi STALKERS! (yes, I mean readers..)
About a month ago I wrote something about BEAUTY..
and on how PERFECTION is a DISEASE of our NATION..
I got INSPIRED by Beyonce’s video PRETTY HURTS..
It’s about how we all wanted to do CRAZY stuff just to FIT IN..
So I wanted to work on a COVER shoot that would actually address this HUGE ISSUE of BEAUTY..

Lemme ask YOU..
What is BEAUTIFUL for you?
ANSWERING this for you is my ASPIRATION in LIFE..
HELP CHANGE the way we SEE what is BEAUTIFUL..

“I think people who are the happiest are the most beautiful creatures on this planet."  

NOT the ones with ABS..
Or FINE BUTTS..
neither the ones with PERFECT NOSE..
or the ones who could buy JIMMY CHOO’s..
So be HAPPY..
ENJOY LIFE..
DO what makes YOU HAPPY..
LIVE IT..
OWN IT..
You are BUILT in the LIKENESS of GOD our CREATOR..
KEEP that in MIND.

Anyway going back let’s do some CREDITS here..
I have COLLABORATED with my great friend KIMBERLY AGUIRRE on bringing out the BEST of BEAUTY in this issue..
She did the MAKE-UP on our stunning muse for this cover BETH.. (I’ll tell you guys more of her story & details about her soon..)
This is also the first time that I’ve done STYLING & DESIGN for the cover..
Check out the SKIRT on the cover.. (tell me what you guys think about it -- I love hearing CRITISM)
So that’s all for now..

ENJOY both COVERS of our BEAUTY ISSUE..





Have fun on this amazing MONDAY STALKERS!

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!
