OUTFIT / Foam meets function


Foam sweater / FrontRow Shop

Low-crotch pants - Comme des Garcons 

It's been cold and raining everyday . The other day i forgot my white umbrella  and i came home with a soaked sweater.  It was my favorite grey sweater and the rain violated it with wet streaks. Thats what i hate about grey clothings. A neoprene sweater , instead, is a fail-proof  armada for the rain. Neoprene isnt just a useless trend , but a functional blessing. It's thick and water doesnt penetrate. Honestly, i was drawn to it because aestehtically, it creates a sculpture-like form but wearing it has proven its purpose that it's become a trusty armor and clothing in one.


LIFE / Mario Badescu

Before I loved fashion, I was a fan of beauty stuff.. Toiletries, make up , skincare - name it! I 'd save up my week long allowance and by the end of the week , my mom would be stupefied to discover receipts from MAC , Beauty Bar , so on.  Back in college , I had a very very bad case of oily skin and acne and I tried hi and lows. It was a bloody battle. The brand Mario Badescu caught my eye. I wasn't into  the minimalist aesthetic before but the clean packaging combined with its modern, subtle branding had me. To compound, the ingredients are kind of unique and less in number. A true minimalist !  I wouldn't brag so much about my skincare because it's personal and I am still not so proud of my own skin but I love the brand so much. So here I am , happy and excited nevertheless ! The lovely girl from Rustan's Cubao gave me heaps of samples too. 


OUTFIT / Whites + Stripes

shirt / 5cm
pinstripe pants /  See by Chloe
shoes / Nike Air Force 1
bag / Cava  Philippines

Instead of jeans , 90% of my wardrobe consists of trousers. My granpa and I could trade closets but he is in heaven already. And these trousers are easier to wash too. I went to the grocery to buy my weekly supply of lettuce and tomatoes. My mom and I did a little thriftshopping and the goodies are all inside my trusty Cava backpack.  This is my kind of weekend.


COLLECTION / Ava Catherside

I am veritably speechless. One of the best collections I've seen this year and 
this one's from her SS14 collection.
Combining milky , textured and glossy finishes to her 
easy and structured key pieces , I have enjoyed
studying how the patterns and cuts marry into 
one interesting and compact collection.
Hands down!
