In the midst of the summer heat, I had to leave the house for some work. There was also an event I was going to afterwards so I took in consideration the weather plus something fashion-y special for the event. The event wasnt formal so I could get away with wearing a tee shirt, pair of shorts and some sandals. But you know me, I like rising to the challenge of wearing a tee shirt without looking like I'm stepping out in my 'pambahay' as what we call it here in Manila or in english, it means casual clothing pertaining to sleeping clothes.

Good thing I knew this designer who was selling some really cool stuff from his projects in fashion design. And take note theyre still his projects. I cant wait for him to do full time designing in the future:) That would be a blast. He showed interesting black and white pieces (which i ended up buying and ordering new ones too)and his aesthetic spoke to me straight: avant garde.
His name is Exur Lopena.

What a cool way to wear a t-shirt by redesigning it to look like something formal by adding draped fabrics. I also like the cutouts showing skin because it is summer after all here.

To top off the look, gold accessories. Im into chains this season and these pieces from PRettylittlefinds and Glamgoddess are all pure chic.

With the sun blazing the whole afternoon I got to wear again my fave doubleflip frames by SUBCULT

The event I went to was a collective retail showcase of local talent: some new and some established independent underground designers. Love the stuff. Even bought a few. Couldn't resist it.

By the way I got a number of compliments on the tee shirt which made me glad because Im always passionate about supporting local design talent and if I can help get his name out there then thats a totally cool thing.
