Sorry for not being able to post as often as before. :) 
It's finals week and I have a lot of plates to pass and exams to take; 
but anyway, at least I was still able to squeeze in a quick outfit post for the one I wore last Tuesday.

(It's so weird how I unconsciously kept my left foot looking like this in almost all the pictures! LOL)

-As you can see, this seems to be your usual "on the go" type of look, because of the use of the T-shirt + shorts combo. However, I believe I was still able to make it a bit more interesting by playing with colors and shades. 
I just love how the colors of my wraparound contrast to my all black ensemble.

Styling Dungaree: Grungy vs Swaggie

A Dungaree is a type of garment which features trousers and includes a bib that is held up by straps over the shoulders. It is usually made from thick fabrics such as denim. In the Philippines it is commonly referred to as  a 'Jumper.'

Based on my previous posts, you could say that I am very adventurous when it comes to dressing up. 
I just love trying out new things, or spicing up an old manner of wearing clothes and making it fresher and more original to the eye; an example of the latter is what this post can be categorized as.

Wearing dungarees are most popular in the mid-1900's, and since I believe that fashion trends come and go; I thought why not wear one today? 
Doing just that, I was able to create two very different looks featuring one kickass dungaree that I got online.

Here's the first look:

- For the first look, I decided to go grungy(surprise, surprise!)
Dungarees are always affiliated with grunge because of its effortless yet stylish feel. 
Aside from dungarees, plaid and creepers are also staples for the grunge culture; thus making me incorporate all these for the first look.

For the second look, I decided to go for something urban. This is because I've been obsessing over hip hop lately, so without further a do here's my second take:

Don't I look so Swaggie!? LOL
anyway, this look gave me a confidence boost for it matches the songs that i'm recently listening to. 
Heck, i'm even rapping from time to time while posing this shoot LOL!

And that's it!
2 very different looks using 1 dungaree.
I honestly can't decide which one looks better, could you help me by commenting on this post?

Good Sport

Like most people, I'm fond of exploring new things; and this is also applicable when i'm dressing myself up. I just love composing outfits with certain characters in mind resulting into a completely new look that I actually find likable, and the outfit that I wore one school day is not an exception of my exploration hobby. 

As you can see, this outfit is super sporty. 
This is because I have a Varsity/Baseball tee on together with some Nike Jordans.
But the thing that I love the most in this outfit are the bright and bold colors that're featured in it. 

To emphasize the presence of the bold colors, I topped off my outfit with this quirky and equally colorful comic-strip inspired cap. :)

J's on my feet! :D

- That's about it :) oh and shoutout to my girls who went crazy with me for this shoot:

"I've been reckless, but i'm not a rebel without a cause." - Angelina Jolie

Whaddup, guys!
Sorry for not posting often, it's just that i've been extremely busy with school.
Yep, I still have school for I go to CSB where the trimester educational program is being implemented and followed; the reason why "sembreak" is not included in my vocabulary.

But anyway, even though I don't have any form of breaks, weekends are always there to keep me sane.
I take every weekend as a time to have fun and last Sunday is not an exemption. This is because me and my siblings, together with their own families, decided to pay Tagaytay a visit.

And this is what I wore:

- I decided to wear this dope sleeveless hoodie that I got from a store called Push Thru.
I love it so much, for it is very appropriate for the bipolar weather here in the Philippines.

I've been itching to wear hoodies for about some time now, but often get discouraged to do so because of the warm weather. This hoodie however is still applicable for the heat (and for unexpected rains.)
Plus, I just love the printed words and symbols on it. It's the perfect mix of sportiness and rebelliousness.

To add up to the hoodie, I decided to wear a matchy-matchy Givenchy inspired cap.
Called it matchy-matchy for the black and white matches my top and the dark green undertone matches my cargo pants.

Being a Fashion blogger and the only techy person of the family(trust me, i'm the only Juane who have an instagram account. LOL!) bringing my gadgets is a must, and i'm talking about big and heavy gadgets like my DSLR and ipad; so I decided to bring a backpack with me.
I just love the print on this backpack and how it matches my outfit!

Shoutout to my brah for taking these pictures!

1 Shirt in 3 Ways

Whenever I buy clothes, I always see to it that I can use them for more than once.
This is because like most college students, I have a budget to maintain and distribute to other things like food, academic fees, art materials and more.

For this post, i'd like to show you how I wore one shirt in three ways.
I personally think that being able to mix and match is very important for it shows creativity and versatility: Two qualities that every Fashionista should have! <3

The element that i'm going to wear in three different styles is the Forever 21 ACDC muscle tee.
I just love how it excludes both vintage-y and grungy vibes.
The words written on it "ACDC for those about to rock, UK. tour 1982" signifies that it is a rare band merchandise that is not for sale anymore, when in fact I only got this brand new on a store.

This outfit gives me the "running for errands, then off to Starbucks" character.
This maybe because of the relaxed cardigan that I have on which gives me a very chill look.

Pants from Harman Jeans
Boots from Forever 21

For the second look, I decided to incorporate.... wait for it..... CAMOUFLAGE!
yep, you know me; I'm all up for Camou:

I feel so youthful whenever I wear Camouflage!
and these pants are extra youthful for it have those side details which made it look appropriate for doing physical works.
To add more youth to the look, I decided to go for my trusted sneakers.

Pants from Forever 21
Shoes from Vans
Watch - G-shock

And lastly, 
the best way to go all out grunge is by adding leather to my already grungy tee!
This look is surely an eye-catcher for it has a lot of attitude as given by the leather elements.
So if you wanna look like a rockstar and be a scene stealer, go for leather!

Explicit Givenchy

Once again, 
this outfit post is rated SPG (Strict Parental Guidance LOL!) for it includes some statements that're explicit and may not be appropriate for children :))

so anyway, let me start of by stating something about a random topic: ios 7
I have a bitter-sweet relationship with ios 7 for various reasons, but my favorite thing about it is its new notification center. I like it for it clearly updates everyone on what the weather will be for the day and for the ones to follow! :) and if you're living in a place like the Philippines, which has an extremely bipolar season, this may come in handy.

Once again, me and my super fashionista friends decided to schedule a day when we can shoot each other for blogging purposes and for the sake of having fun. Even before this big day came, I already know what i'm gonna wear in which will be super attractive and appropriate for the weather all thanks to ios 7's weather report. Without further ado, here's my outfit:

All throughout the day, I felt sexy and free(nuks! haha)
all thanks to this super dope Givenchy inspired sweater that I got from Androgyne Manila.
It just reminds me of the hip hop artists from my generation like Kanye West, Jay Z and Justin Bieber. Atleast even just for a day, I can get my swag on ;) haha.

(those white dots are raindrops coming from the open windows)

My favorite part about this sweater is its star details that do around the neck area.
The fact that the stars are present in both the front and back parts is just dope.

Speaking of dope, check out my cap! got this from Local Celebrity; and I just love how it matches my top.
Not just because of the color palette, but also for the hip hop theme.
The phrase: "Fuck you, Pay me" originally vcame from the movie Goodfellas and later on used in a rap song by Kanye West. 

But of course, I tend to add my personal touch to my outfit.
Instead of going all Kanye with jeans, I paired the sweater with shorts that ends right above my knees; giving me a more grungy and age-appropriate approach to the outfit.

To add more grunge, I finished off the look with these bad ass graffiti shoes by Jeremy Scott from Adidas.
