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. Good thing I found a handful of neutrals and mutable colors to incorporate in my looks. The problem is, how to think of what to wear in an ocean of new items I am not familiar of??? Keep Calm Duane! hahahha So I look around and realized what were those …

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.

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! Blessed ka, may Trabaho ka! Sa mga Estudyante, BLESSED ka kasi NAG AARAL KA, Thank you …
No one can deny that once you get stuck in a traffic or in an establishment under the rain, we just cant avoid being senti and starts playing songs that pulls us in an emotional vacuum or the opposite, a Party inside our head hahah, but the bottom line is, Spotify Philippines launched the latest update “Daily Mix” that caters a Perfect Listening Session where ever we are, whatever mood we are in to 😀
As a Mindanaoan, I grew up appreciating the beauty and how rich Batik Motif talks about culture in every design composition. There’s a lot to tell about the Batik however this collection actually aims to help Factory Workers with every purchase on this collection with their “Empowerment Project”. After the Jollibee x Uniqlo campaign I did, I feel so honored how Uniqlo noticed how much I really like their Batik Collection. Then poof! here I am sharing “How to incorporate Traditional Batik Motif in your Contemporary Look”. but first, let me orient you about the Batik Motif and what makes it relevant.

Talking about Oxygen x Billboard Collaboration last week, here’s my take on their collection, a buena mano of a 2 part LookBook Series for Oxygen x Billboard Collection. This is quite challenging to inject with my styling since it’s way too modern for a Laid Back kid like me but guess what! I figured out a trick on how to revamp your laid back look whit a minimum effort 😀 I’ve already blogged about my other Errand Look “Scout” before, but that’s best on normal season, for extremely hot summer (or day) I always wear this combo hahaha and Im glad I fused it with Oxygen‘s latest collection and made it blog worthy to talk about.
There are certain Songs or Playlist that influences the way we present our selves, Oxygen is well aware of that, no wonder when we visit Oxygen branches, their playlist possess us and helps us build up the Styling we want to establish. Speaking of Music and Playlists, This summer, well-loved local fashion brand, Oxygen, announces that it has entered into a partnership with Billboard, It’s not every day that you hear about local brands collaborating with international groups that are regarded as industry institutions.
