There are those who have the means to shower themselves with all the glorious luxuries existing in every designer's atelier... and then there's us? I must admit .. im extremely feeling envious about the blogger from Hongkong, Paak. But since its a holy Wednesday, ill just drool like mad dog and pray.. check his blog and drool.. lets all drool together.. http://fashionpaak.blogspot.com
wearing a diy shirt / skinny pants from SOLO / Boots - dR.mARTEN'S
White has been always tricky for me..It virtually adds weight and thickness on my entire sillhouette. And being a messy boy that I am, i never fail to ruin its purity by frequently murdering it with ink markings, accidental dusty prints, and the inevitable loose powder sprinkles. In the hospital where I am garbed with an all white nursing uniform, my day wouldn't end without the funny remarks among the staff, doctors and employees regarding how untidy I am. Some even doubted whether I really laundry my uniforms which I think is hilarious. That's why i try not to wear white ,not only because I wear white 24/7 from work but im super messy.
But seeing Ann-Sofie Back's past summer collection, I couldnt resist the haunting yet opulent impact that an all WHITE outfit could offer most especially this summer.
Also lately, I always get this unexplainable euphoria whenever i see a plain white shirt.. virgin, unadulterated yet crumpled.. Thoughts, creative juices start pouring in as i study the blank canvas. Its as if I was given a clean sheet of paper for some nonchalant doodling and coloring. By default, I always cut the hemlines and the collar to make it look young and liberating. i dont understand collars.. they strangulate my throat and my chest. But this time, I , once again, used an old trick to make the shirt more personalized. ...TEXTILE PAINTS!!!!
What was supossed to be a blood stained shirt din't turn out the way I expected it to be. i shouldav made the colors more intense but obviously the redness of this cheap textile paint I bought wasn't that deep and carnal.whatever.. I still think that it made the ripped sections look like a blooded ribcage or vertebra.haha. Im planning to wear it , say, for a beach vacation or in a pool party. I just wish that the colors wouldnt contaminate the water. i discovered that it can be worn both ways too.
sheesh! I guess I need to buy more white shirts this time . My friend Nicole told me that it retails at 50 pesos in Greenhills. My dad almost killed me when he learned that I demoralized his undershirts for work... sorry dad. haha.
Daryl: hi.. may i know your name? Karl: KARL... Leuterio.. L -E -U -T.... Daryl: oh youre the one from Chictopia! KARL: (fuck yeah! kilala nya ako. chos!)haha
saw this on Daryl Chang's site STYLESAMURAI just this morning . I think this was taken a few weeks ago at FUCK ART LETS DANCE art exhibit.
To tell you a bit about what happened , I think I was drinking Red Wine while talking with his fashown brother Andre Chang when she asked me to pose for her camera. Before that I saw her snapping photos of Gelo Arucan, Nixon Marquez , Chi Kotour and some of the guests for her style blog. And oh I love her cam! I used to have the same camera.
So she asked me to pose behind the white wall and I felt like I was exploding inside(lol) .. the funny thing was I smiled at the count of three which isn't a good move. not even fashown if you know what I mean.
Daryl told me not to smile for the second photo.. haha. i dunno whenever others take photos of me with other people watching, I SMILE by default coz i feel shy really. I guess I am only comfortable whenever my brother holds the cam right up into my face. But f*ck it! Its the great Daryl Chang , associate fashion editor of Preview Magazine, who took this photo of me... and i died ...
good thing i dont look fuck faced on the photo.. I was drinking wine during the event and my face couldnt be red and oilier like a lobster haha
my fave celeb that night. IZA! shes super nice.. shes playing with my clothes while i was fixing her hair or something...
Carla aBELLANA.. shes a barbie doll!
Backstage she was telling the make up artist about the brand of her mineral make up - BARE ESSENTUALS. i wanna butt in but i was scared! i so wanna tap her back and make chica about make up stuff but she looks scary .. chos. no shes nice and funny and smart
see? shes smiling and shes showing her perfect set of teeth
Eric and BIANCA KING..
the ff. day, Yas saw me at Gateway.. and said hi! I really cant remember her since she looked so laidback. She said "hey , im the one from GMA yesterday! "
good thing RCXY is armed with some MONO goodies.. Chanel inked shirt by MONO
make your mama proud hehe
POP GIRLS!! make it pop! haha
Eldzs Mejia making Aljur hotter.chos.
Aljur Abrenica wore this.. super bango lang! haha
Gloves by MONO.. I kinda struggled a bit when i helped singer Jay-r wear this one ...or was I just shaking a lot?.. haha
I MELT.. chos.. my make up, that is. haha
so i think Im already allowed to post the photos on my blog since the show will air on GMA 7 at 12 noon i think? Miss Iza Calzado was super nice.. and her face is just so perfect! im not much of a showbiz fan but the experience is overwhelming. I havent stayed in a place for long where there's a lot of super perfect-looking people aka celebrities ..
I thought that its prohibited to take pics while on the set thats why i only have a few photos on my cam. SAYANG ! I was with Kyla for like 10 minutes and i hadnt had the chance to have a photo of her.boo!
While Eldzs Mejia WERE busy styling Aljur on the set, Me and RCXY enjoyed styling the Pop Girls.. Theyre so adorable and modest and I LOVE working w/ such people..Some of them just came from school. God theyre super young! As expected they were super happy with RCXY's vision and theyre looking forward for his next styling.
RCXY don't you feel bad about quitting the job ? these girls need your help and guidance w/ regards to style and they love what you did! hehe
Watch it later on GMA 7 AT Exactly 12 noon. I still havent seen the teasers of this show. ughh..
