After seeing this, i was super tempted do wear something leather-y this season 'spite the fact that
here in Manila, once the clock strikes at 10am, the heat of the sun becomes terribly severe. .. And i promised myself to imbibe the relaxed chic look.. think: Karla's Closet.... I'm afraid can't be Kate Lanphear for the moment haha..

The collection reminded me of those male models on Vogue Hommes Japan who wore leather from head to toe.. i loved looking at them.

but Jaiden rVa James's collection is beyond your usual euro-rocker chic.. his collection is more like "Underground british punk idolizes edward scissor hands sans the scissor"... Th multiple leather belt is reminiscent of Anne Demeulmeester.. or not? oh well.. Nuff said!.. Im lusting over the fact that his army of tall and broody men wore those high heeled wedges.. watching them walk in a manly way is refreshing with a tinge of humor in it.. Very reminiscent of Rad Hourani this time ,where he sent his male models wearing those squared toe booties... sorry for bein so random and incohesive..haha


shoes definitely doesnt or shouldnt define one's sexuality..

nope this isn't Alexander Wang's s/s 10 backstage photos .. the bushy eyebrows was seen on Erin Wasson x RVCA f/w 10 show. i love backstage photos.. whenever i watch fashion tv's backstage edition, i feel tempted to grab a brush and pat some gooey liquid foundation on a smooth face...

which reminds me i should start re-grooming my eyebrows.. these stray hairs are growing like mad.

Let's bring Paris right here..

france tee thrifted, Topman slim grey belt, Mario P. Suede booties, bluemarine pants


i'm lovin these Bluemarine sequined-pocket trousers my aunt got me recently.. i feel lazy to dress up this morning to my doctor so i grabbed this cute tee and the most comfy trousers i have, next to dhoti's and harems. I think ima stick with this style for long. hehe. Oh i wish i took a photo of the back pocket coz the sequins are bigger on that area.. anyhow, ive been sick for days and i just feel lazy to stay at least an hour surfing the net.. Good day everyone!

trying to smile


I'm in my sickest state right now... my nose are clogged that i can't even smell the odor of my brother's socks on the floor every night like i used to. I don't know what gram-positive bacteria or virus invaded my body that i feel totally weak.. ughhh.. this is terrible..my nose looks swollen from all the sneezing and blowing.. the hospital should pay for this.. chos! haha


Tommorrow, i tagged Mike to see the Nihongo Fiesta in Mall of Asia and i do hope that by tonight this flu virus is gone.

i woke up at 8 am and dragged myself up to see the doctor nearby , but the noises from outside made me feel twice as tired so i just popped in 2 Paracetamol tablets and before i knew it, i was asleep...

i love this FRANCE TEE i bought online.i ripped and cut the hems to make it look raw.. its becoming my addiction.. Last monday, i rummage my closet and grabbed all the tees i have and with a pair of scissor , i cut randomly the hems of the neckline and sleeves.. oh boy.. i love the end result. You should go try it yourself..

taken last year..

i can't recall what drug or food made me so gaga over drapes. Before i knew it, Im all over Rick Owen's shit. Honestly, i was blogging the whole afternoon and seeing these images from fashioninfusion jumpstarted my bored 5pm brain into greater heights.

Rick Owens, Anne Demeulmeester, Damir Doma, Tatsuro Horikawa , let's all welcome KUHO SOU's HEXA


The collection is entitled 'Talpi' which translates as 'ecdysis. That means the moulting of skin in reptiles and amphibians, although the term can be used 'to represent attempts to shed our outer skins and reemerge as spiritually more perfect and pure '. In a more layman's term , it means EXFOLIATION. haha
Mister Kuho expressed the idea of skin-shedding through the garments themselves hence the slip-effect of garments from another garment. If you look at the details more closely, one can appreciate what Jung Kuho wants to translate..

Personally, i kindov understood the theme since i underwent a lot of skin shredding and exfoliation before i truly acknowledge the style which i do love..who didn't anyway?

Plus Freja Beja , my new model crush, closed the show.. Good choice Mister Kuho.. good choice!

Well, at last Korea has a representative already in the draping bandwagon.
