Few weeks ago, Penshoppe recently released its Summer 2017 collection along with the opening of its newest flagship store dubbed as—Penshoppe Capital. The collection features a myriad of stylishly trendy pieces that are not only affordable, but keeps you stylishly suitable for Philippine weather, yet as always takes cue from global fashion trends. On the same day, we had an impromptu shopping spree at the same branch. I went on a panic since most of the items are new and not of those that I was eyeing days before the actual shopping. Join me as I list down some of my lessons. KEEP CALM AND GO SUMMER READY With Globe Wanderland happening this weekend, My picks has to be inspired by the free spirit of music and arts festivals.

Keep Calm Duane! hahahha So I look around and realized what were those …
People cant help but notice how my skin looks better in contrast years ago. I never knew I’d be talking about this now. Ever since, I usually preach “How Confidence Can Be A Game Changer” though, no matter how my confidence grow, there’s one thing it cant fix. —> Scars 🙁 My pimples were never the loner type, they prefer hanging out by groups of at least 3 and they were really clingy. As I’m getting use to having scars, thinking maybe my confidence would take other people’s attention away from my scars, sad reality, I cant keep it if it’s placed in the front row, more like pawns waiting to die but NO! it’s my self esteem that dies first before my scars.
Mossimo Philippines unravel the newest face of street wear with pieces inspired by unconventional zest of Urban x Street fusion. Mossimo is up for a new capsule collection and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen from the brand before, namely Mossimo X. In my mind, it’s still the Mossimo California Laid back that always reminds me of Brent Javier. Yet with the Mossimo X, “The pieces are very dynamic, easy to wear, up-to date and versatile yet daring” as per John Lozano (Stylist Curator of Mossimo X). Well, I have to agree. During the launch of Mossimo X, I was at awe and wanting to immediately grab my own piece! Streetwear like these will effortlessly pump up the style in your look, killing your “what to wear vibe” to “Ooh I dont care what I’ll pair with this” coz it’s basically all made up to be stylish even whatever you pair on it.
Functionality always comes first for me when I dress up. During the rainy season, the worst thing is when you get soaked wet when you are yet to begin the day. Or to do laundry when the sun is hiding behind the clouds crying all week. There was this week where I spent the parts of the day with wet shoes, still trying to be professional. Good thing my favorite brands Uniqlo and Converse has this thing for rainy season yet aesthetically speaking “presentable ” hahaha. WHAT I WEAR Water Resistant and Reversible Hoodie Jacket & Fleece Turtle Neck from Uniqlo Spray On Skinny Jeans from Topman Water Resistant High Cut Sneakers from Converse Picking The Color Pallet When it comes to color palette, I follow what’s present in the nature especially when Im in doubt. for example in this look, I pegged the colors from a fruit hahah Orange! hahahaha.

Fall Winter Trend always have the darker palette. Unfortunately for me who is sweaty and lives on an island that is Forever Summer. For practicality’s sake, I prefer apparels that I can wear with me on top of Kiltipan-Breath-Taking-Foggy-Sunrise down to the slums of Metro Manila, yet still fashionable. I found this on Uniqlo Fall Winter 2016 collection. Let Colors incorporate in your Fall Winter look. “When I gaze upon the works of your hands, tell me who am I that You are mindful of me” — last night, this lyrics struck me. A God who can live and exsist without us, died on the cross, plus the verses from Romans3:23 and Romans 6:23 is just too much to engulf, Thank You Lord God! And I Pray, to those who read this will experience and FEEL the presence of the HolySpirit working in their lives, yung mga nasa kalsada pa papuntang Office at nag rereklamo na Monday nanaman, Kapit lang!

Nothing beats a utilitarian styling when it comes to the stormy season, unfortunately Philippines will always be a forever summer country, that is why over layering is the worst thing to do this season especially if you commute daily. Of all the possible top you can wear, I really prefer wearing Hooded Parkas under this weather, aside from the spaces it offers, it is also easy to style only if you know the rules.

As we all know Philippines was hit by Lucky B Smith Fever the other week, after seeing all his fans last week, I decided to decode the styles he was wearing to match individual personality while keeping in line the Lucky Blue Smith aura.
