Versatile

Let’s take a break from the usual styles you see me wearing. What I’m truly proud of is the fact that even though I have my personal style, I still challenge myself to try new ones. Versatility – the key ingredient to keep you dear readers interested.

When A-Fash decided to have “Hip-hop” as our theme, I was very excited because I know I can pull off this style easily. No sweat! I can easily change from the blouse-skirt-heels to the harem bottoms-plus-sneakers type of girl.

What I’m wearing: DC snapback, borrowed from Ava; denim vest, neon top, and harlem pants, thrifted

leather band, Tomato; neon green  bracelet, Kikay’s Kit; blue skull bracelet, CaLee Shoppe

I really like wearing snapbacks not just because it’s a lifesaver during bad hair days but because it  also give swag to an outfit. (•‿•)

How do you like my take on hip-hop? Comment away!

P.S. I want to thank those who prayed for me and wished me good luck for my title defense last July 28. Your prayers and sincerity worked because my partner and I received a grade of 97. Yey! That’s something to celebrate about, isn’t it? Thanks guys! 

 

Love,

Didi

Before we expound on the outfit details, we’d tell you first about this über awesome shop directly from the owner’s words – in bullets:

 History

(Brian Patrick experiences a few setbacks)
● 3D Animator bails on him. 
● Full-feature movie will probably never see the light of day.
● Full feature movie has been shelved for 2 years.
● Restaurant project down the drain.
● With nothing to do, Brian, consumes a baziilion paperback novels within a year. Went on crazy road trips and drank a lot of booze.
● Gets his heart broken twice.
● Begins to feel numb and looses his passion. 
● One day decides to get off his lazy ass after watching Kony 2012.
(Has been a supporter of Invisible Children since 2006.)
● Decides to do a fundraiser for Kony 2012.
● Worked with MaPapel to provide the merchandise.
● Fell in love with making T-shirts.
● Buys a heat press and cutter plotter.
● Inspired by his friends and their various businesses, Brian opens WICKED SAUCE on Facebook. (Still has no idea what he actually wants to do with the brand, but hey, it’s better than just sitting around all day and complaining.)
● Brian is now back to doing what he loves, designing, typography, performing, events, and is now finishing his movie.

STATISTICS

Future Plans:
1. Events
2. Movies
3. Plaids, Knits, Hoodies, Tanks, Pants, Snapbacks, Shades

STATISTICS

Absorbing all these made us admire Sir Brian more not just because he is too kind to sponsor us (hey this is our biggest sponsorship-slash-endorsement so far and we feel so grateful!) but in a deeper sense, he is a man with passion; passionate people like him drive us to be better in doing what we love and just be optimistic about things. ☺

Now we proceed to the outfit details. We will show you how to wear the basic graphic/statement shirt without looking tickity tack! We have sported two looks. ☺

We feel so grateful and blessed that in less than two months, we have gained more than 900 followers. What’s more wonderful is that our family, relatives and friends have been and will always be supportive in everything we do. We are so driven by passion that nothing and no one will hinder us to pursue the things we love doing (yes haters, we mean it! LOL). We thank you for all the warmth and appreciation. Words will never be enough but allow us to express our gratitude to you endlessly.

Another reason to be thankful for is our sponsors. Isn’t it awesome receiving cool stuff for free? Aah, the simple pleasures of life! The adorable dogtags above are from MaPapel. Lovin’ what you see? Read on! 

The aforementioned shop, wittily named MaPapel, offers on-hand paper and PVC products. This is how their description goes: “It’s about every young girl’s obsession with paper, design, print, stress and drama.” However, seeing their array of superb pieces, men could be obssessed with their products as well, particularly the dogtags that spell S-W-A-G. You can view more of their PVC dogtags HERE with the amazing price of only Php 150! Whatcha’ waiting for? Go purchase yours and wear what you wanna convey.

L-R: Didi, Therese, Joyce, Kiana

Since we were young, we’re always reminded that the best way to be thankful is to share and so, we decided to give the two dogtags to our cousin, Therese Dominique, and our sister, Frances Kiana. Yes there are three FRANCESes in the family. In fact, our youngest sibling is named Francis Xavier. We will introduce him to all of you soon, too! ❤

Girly x Rocker Chic

Our second day of classes did not allow our schedules to meet for a shoot so we had to do it separately. We didn’t even have any idea what the other was wearing until we finally headed home to our dormitory. It was only then that we realized we were wearing quite opposite concepts. Didi, too girly and me, a smidgen of the rocker chic.
