TOPMAN Spring 2011: Field Daze

A LITTLE HISTORY: When i was a little younger (12-14 years old), i was about 230 something lbs (more or less). My only concern was to at least have something that would fit me right, even less on what would look good on me. To tell you honestly, it was really frustrating back then (maybe that explains why NOW im this obssessed with fashion and clothes)

I was a definite Fashion Victim, in all sense of the word. That fateful moment when i looked in the mirror and said to myself - ill loose weight and will have so many options of clothes that one closet wouldn't be enough.

I look back now and could say that i wish i omitted the last one! lol

YEAR 2005 - The first ever shirt i bought myself (when i lost a considerable amount of weight) was a shirt from TOPMAN (I even regret not buying the I BET YOU LOOK GOOD ON THE DANCEFLOOR (im a big fan of the Arctic Monkeys)) Shirt. Thats why this brand will forever be in my heart and budget.

Thankfully RSSI gave me the Spring Summer 2011 Lookbook of TOPMAN! so theres more reason to shop right?

Here is one of the Spring 2011 trends that we'll be seeing here in TOPMAN. Field Daze.

The Royal Tenenbaums meets Kurt Cobain. 70's meets 90's. Relaxed New York dapper with a whole lot of Grunge. Lest we forget the contemporary sartorial downtown indie New York attitude of the looks. Bet? i love it.

cant wait! (btw that model has freakishly beautiful blue eyes ya? je ládore)




To tell you the truth i only started adoring everything about Proenza Schouler since their Spring 2010 Street Scuba Oceanic Couture collection (see photo below). Everything about that collection seemed to work effortlessly. Then on, Lázaro Hernández and Jack McCoullough never stopped amazing me with cool modern american sportswear that you definitely want to wear.

For Spring 2011, Proenza Schouler delivered one of their best collections by far. Referencing from the conventional codes of femininity like Lace, Sequins, Emroideries and Chiffon they then took everything into a whole new level of COOL. Tripped up pieces with pyschodelic sequins and tweed and neon-acidy-wash-techno finishes all put together to form a proper LADY.

And I quote Phillipe Starck: 'the sexiness of tomorrow is intelligence' so what does an early 20-30 something fashionphile do? Easy. Be polished and put together, but in a cool modern way, the Proenza Schouler way.


TOPSHOP SS2011: Snake Valley

Taking cue from 70s bohemian hippie cowboy meets contemporary music festival gypsy rocker girl the international mega brand TOPSHOP conjures up the fancy of wear-it-as-you-like-it feeling all over again with perfect combinations of fringe kiminos, snake skin hot pants, croshet waistcoats, multi-print billowy sheer chiffon tops, ponchos,...

you get the drift of it... its all about layers, layers and layers of Topshop.

Here are the photos from the SS2011 Lookbook.

Among the 4 Topshop trends for SS2011, I could see that this collection could be easily translated in a very sartorial way by the many fashionphiles/ fashion bloggers/ fashionistas here in Manila. I tell you im definitely considering those loose Caftan/Poncho tops.

Sometimes dressing up in layers is just the way to go... for love and free spirit of it all.

Special thanks to Inez and Valerie of RSSI for sharing the

SS2011 Lookbook of TOPSHOP



Baby Good Night

GDragon update!!!

DONT GO HOME, my favorite song from the GD&TOP Volume 1 Album has been selected as follow-up promotion track together with BABY GOOD NIGHT.

it was revealed yesterday on Star News that GDragon took the lead role for the 'DONT GO HOME' and TOP for 'BABY GOOD NIGHT'

The two music videos is directed by Lee Kibaek and will feature connecting story lines with romantic proposals. (OMG)

From the looks of it, i could see 50's NEW YORK street gang rebel inspired Jets vs Sharks (West Side Story) echos here and there. From the Red Leather Jacket to the Faded Denim Jeans, it looks like GDragon is playing as Tony! i love it!

I especially loved Natalie Wood, who played the role of Maria in the 1961 film adaption of the musical.

I cant wait for the 2 Music Videos to be released!

Thank You ALLKPOP and BIGBANG UPDATES for the update.


Shopping Trip # 1: Happy Socks will make you Happy

I couldnt help it.

I did promise not to shop until February... but I did survive 12 days without buying anything.

When i usually shop, I try to buy a whole outfit... or thats just what im telling myself that im doing. I was supposed to source outfits earlier in Greenbelt 5 for an upcoming shoot for a magazine, but i ended up sourcing outfits for myself as well.

So here are the stuff i bought.

Cropped Funnel Neck Cropped Camel Jacket. ZARA

Drop Crotch Drawstring Khaki Pants. JASPAL

Black Tank Top in Rayon with Patent Leather Triangles. Nixon Marquez @ MYTH

Beige/Purple Bow Tie. AC+632

2 Happy Socks (uhm I saw T.O.P. wearing Happy Socks, and i just had to buy Happy Socks... i had that MEAN GIRLS moment earlier in ADORA lol)

T.O.P and I even have the same Red/Blue/White VANS Topsiders. (im loving T.O.P. more and more... but GDragon will always be in my heart)

When you have new clothes, doesnt it make you want to have something to do/somewhere to go/schedule something just to go out? Clothes have that kind of effect on people does it? But at the end of the day

"clothes are just clothes, they will always be clothes" (quote and quote Marc Jacobs during his SS2011 70s extravaganza show).

Their only role is to cover you up and make you feel good.

But heck! im just happy to have HAPPY SOCKS! lol



My ZAC EFRON Calendar

Ok just got to share this.

I bought this Zac Efron calendar in National Bookstore Shangri La Mall the other day for 500PHP (approx $10). Im supposed to only buy a planner (which i did as seen on my previous post) but this got my attention. Who wouldnt accidentally look at this HOT MESS and not pick it up? lol

He got me at HAIRSPRAY.

I dont know about its 'official' calendar claims, but this was just something random lol
