Because we live in a tropical country where our seasons are hot and hotter, sunglasses have become a staple for me. Normally I choose affordable ones from fast fashion stores but I’m thinking of upgrading after I saw the new collection of Safilo, which carries luxury brands like Carrera, Jimmy Choo, Fendi, Hugo Boss, Max Mara, and Dior.
With the prevalence of social media, it’s become easier to discover new talents in every field imaginable. Of course, this includes fashion, and ZALORA took advantage of this connectivity for Make Me A ZALORA Model Cycle 3 (MMAZM), a regional modeling competition that looked for its contestants online. Two winners were recently announced and they are Jeremiah Lisbo from the Philippines and Yunike Francesca from Hong Kong.
The Philippines may only have two seasons, but the latter part of the year brings cooler air, overcast skies, and a buzzing excitement for Christmas. When it comes to style, it becomes time to replace the short shorts and the tropical prints for layers and darker colors. I love this time of year so it’s no surprise that my uniform is made up of “fall” colors like black, white, gray, and blue!
One of my favorite watches growing up was my G-Shock, which lit up with the push of a button and had a tiny stick figure dancing to an 8-bit tune. Whenever I think about it, I am transported to my childhood where I’ll just light it up and watch the figure dance what I thought were the coolest moves. However, like everything in my childhood, I grew up and forgot all about it.
I’m so happy to be living in the age of technology because I don’t know what I would do if we didn’t have online shopping. I’m naturally lazy so there are times when I would just want to stay in bed and have things like food, books, groceries, and clothes delivered to me. Now there are more options online as American fashion brand J.Crew will be available on Zalora soon!
I’m losing quite a bit of weight so I thought it was time to update my wardrobe. Luckily, Forever 21 is holding a Mega Sale this weekend, where guests can shop for classic and trendy clothes with discounts of up to 70%! I went to the sale on its VIP Day and was overwhelmed with the number of options at incredible prices.
The denim jacket was invented in the 1880s by Levi Strauss, the same guy who invented blue jeans. Like jeans, the denim jacket was made to be durable in order to survive harsh conditions, perfect for cowboys, railroad engineers, and miners. Similar to jeans, the denim became one of the most classic pieces in menswear, worn by stylish men (and women) like James Dean, John Lennon, Veruschka, and Bruce Springsteen.
I’ve always liked Justin Bieber’s songs, including his early hits “Love Me” and “Eenie Meenie,” but I became a Belieber when he released his album Purpose in 2015. It took him two years to complete because he was finding a new musical direction, and it paid off. “What Do You Mean?,” “Sorry,” and “Love Yourself” were catchy, and critics noted the album’s more mature sound as Bieber’s best. It was nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning Best Dance Recording for “Where Are Ü Now.”
With his new sound came a new wardrobe. He upgraded from looking like a teenager going to the mall with his purple hoodie to a legit streetwear icon. Now, Filipinos can cop the Bieber look because streetwear brand Oxygen launched its collection of licensed merchandise in partnership with Bravado and MCAA Universal!
