Neutral Nautical

I thought it was going to be a sunny afternoon but I was wrong haha! Got these photos taken before I leave for school.

Polo Shirt from Regatta | Carrot Chinos from Bench | Suede Tassel Loafers from Aldo

Went for neutral colors and added a red suede loafers for accent... Which was a bad choice since it started to rain 5 minutes before I got to school until I got home. It was the first time I wore this pair of shoes and I got them wet already. I'll definitely buy that suede protector next time.

One Day

It's starting to get chill and damp here in Manila so I decided to wear these to school.

Pullover from Korea (Mom's gift) | Black Chinos from Bench | Boots from Call It Spring |
Casual Black Metal Watch from Fossil| 

I was kinda lazy to mix and match some colors so I went to the easy one, go monochromatic. Plus a black monochromatic outfit would match the gloomy skies ha!

I actually bought those pants the night before because I was really struggling with my wardrobe. Studying at school with no uniform does have its down side. Everyday is a battlefield; when you got out of the showers and in front of your closet -- that's the struggle. Even though you've got your closet full you'll still be there standing in front of it saying "I've got nothing to wear."

Anyways I've got this pair of chinos for less than 500 Php because it was on sale (Thank God for Sale Season) and another pair for 900php. It was my first time to try Chinos from Bench and they're pretty comfortable. Though I had some problems with the fitting since it was too long for me so I've got it altered.

And this has got to be one of my most used pair of shoes. I bought it as a gift for myself at Call It Spring. I love their shoes. Every time I enter their store it feels like heaven. Their brand is not really known here in the Philippines, they have branches at Greenbelt and Newport (RWM). 

If you're wondering why I have David Nicholl's novel in my hand it is because I finally finished it; Dex and Em, Em and Dex. I've seen the movie before I've even read the book which was kinda frustrating since you already know the plot. But the book has a different way to let you see things. I just love how it was written.

Same Old Palette

I decided to add a fashion content on this blog. Basically what I wore to school everyday, lol not everyday, if I have some time to squeeze it in.

Decided to put on some layers since it's kinda getting cold here in Manila due to rain.

Hype this look at

Graphic Button-down Shirt from Topman | Brown Pullover from Banana Republic |
Low Crotch Cropped Pants | Gold Vintage Watch from Casio | Satchel from Ichigo |
Vintage Shoes from Bally

Most of the things I wore today are vintage except from this one. Got it as gift from my cousin.

Got the shoes from my old man. Perks of having the same shoes size and it's really vintage haha! And my pants aren't really mine, it's from my grandma. She's really fashionable and we have the same waist line, 28, so it's easy to get some goods from her closet.

So much for my first fashion post.

The Progress

Trying to make it more symmetrical.

Choosing the palette to work on.

Finishing the antlers.

Done with the hair strand and antlers.

This is the first time I did a vexel / vector illustration, not tracing everything except for the antlers because I wanted to make it realistic. And this is also the first time I used the shape-pen tool thing instead of using the path to create the hair strands.
