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!

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..
