What I WORE: “Classic Vs. Trendy”

               Ever since my college days – dressing up has been a big part of who I am.. and discovering one’s own unique style definitely takes time. The big challenge for me back then was availability of “funds” –and im sure most students could relate to this. Well back then I would always invest on a good pair of “DENIM JEANS” (P400 from Bench if its on sale) and a couple of plain black and white shirts – then I’d usually go to “Vintage Shops” or what we call “Ukay-Ukay” to find amazingly cheap “Jackets”. I just usually work on the styling to make it my own. Lastly the biggest challenge for me back then was buying  “SHOES”—there wasn’t enough (cheap) brands to choose from back then since my shoe size was size 11 already back in college. I was just thankful that I had relatives in the U.S who were kind enough to send me pairs of shoes at least once or twice a year.

So my point is that it took me awhile to build my closet - It all started with looking for basic pieces with the right fit.. and then after that’s the time when you should buy “TREND”y stuff so you could easily mix and match all your basics with the trendy ones -- Since “TRENDS” are usually “FADS” or “CRAZE”; things that won’t last that long because they are only popular for a short period of time (not good investments)
Anyways here’s what I wore that I’d like to share with y’all –I started this look with The classics / basic ones like the Brown Jacket that I got on SALE (Penshoppe) and plain dark blue trousers (from Bangkok)and of course my plastic eyewear that I brought from a TIANGGE. All of these are pretty much basics which could be worn a thousand times with a whole kind of looks –all with GOOD quality and they are crazy AFFORDABLE.
Then let’s talk about the “TREND” – starts with this micro printed long sleeved top (from BANGKOK) –looks pretty basic but the micro prints make it such a fad. Then these brown boots (also from Bangkok) that I accessorized with these printed socks (from OXYGEN) to create that edgy vibe to my usual preppy look.
So my challenge to you guys is to invest on basic items (which shouldn’t be expensive)-so that you have a working closet which has pieces that you could mix and match for the years to come. Just make sure that you get the right fit and quality and Im sure that you’re on your way to the STYLISH person that you could be.

Special Thanks to my little sister Lovely Faundo for taking these shots on the amazing Manila Film Center.

Have fun reading and dressing up STALKERS!

BLESSED On My First Client Shoot For 2014

                        I would normally shoot clients for their set cards or pregnant photos but this is my first time to shoot a "BABY" for her first birthday -- 
                        I've learned a couple of things from this experience..
1. Making the baby "SMILE" takes a whole lot of "PATIENCE"
2. Outdoor shoot is great but consider the fact that the baby might get irritated because of the weather condition.
3. I would need whole lot of props to create a magnificent set.

But anyways I'll get the hang of it.

Here are some of the shots from our shoot yesterday morning with my uber cute baby model "Patricia" --

What I WORE: Casual Sporty Look

                       I used to hate Sundays.. for the main reason that It's the day that reminds me that I only have a couple of hours left before the weekend is over and for the same reason that Monday is coming. 
                       The GREAT news is that I am over that idea now.. Sunday is my most awaited day of the week.. and that is because of my renewed faith as a Catholic through #TheFeast with Bo Sanchez. It just nourishes my spirit and gets me prepared for the coming week. Anyways here's what I wore yesterday for our "SUNDATE" --

                             So I've decided to go for a sporty casual look -- starting off with this blue knitted top from Gap (courtesy of my dear friend John Saavedra.. Thank you haha..) then I paired it with this Maroon chino pants that I got from Bangkok and lastly this red David Beckham Adidas shoes (courtesy of my ever thoughtful relatives from the U.S) then accessories -- White bold wrist watch from Unlisted by Kenneth Cole and these amazing glasses from the streets of the metro haha.. 
                             Well this is the first time that I've tried wearing red pants on red shoes but it just proves that trying out new things does payoff most of the time. Just always make sure that you purchase the right fit and it will definitely look good on you. The stripes on my top just creates that broad shoulder look that guys would normally go for and it makes you focus on the upper body and not the belly. So for my figure conscious readers it is important that we wear something that would help us look great despite the hidden bulges here and there.

(special thanks to my lil sister "Lovely" for taking this amazing photographs)

So that's it for this weeks What I WORE..

Have fun reading STALKERS!
