The Chubby Buddy Meets DGMNL

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that we look up to someone and have them as our inspiration in doing whatever we love to do. In my case, even before I’ve thought of stepping into the blogging world, I have been following a lot of cool bloggers in the planet already. They serve as my inspiration every time I draft/write my blogposts. What I didn’t expect most is that there would actually come a time that I would meet one of them, and one of which is the iconic fashion slash lifestyle online influencer, David Guison. What made it more awesome is it happened in my hometown (Cagayan de Oro City)! Don’t judge; I cyber-stalk him out of admiration. A like here. A comment there. No harm done.

DGMNLinCDO

Ever had the chance to meet your idol for the first time? Recently, I just did! Bigby’s Cafe and Restaurant in line with their launch of the Bigby’s PERKS Card just brought one of the most in-demand bloggers of today’s generation, fashion icon slash online influencer, David Guison! Woohoo! How cool is that? And come on! That’s David Guison. The iconic social media influencer who I used to see only in Instagram and on the Web will finally be having a meet and greet in CDO giving some tips about style and blogging too. That’s just too awesome, right!?

So I put on my best foot forward, dressed myself in my best clothes to leave a good impression. LOL! So i ended up pulling off this look.

What I’m wearing: Sweater (F&F), Button down (Memo), Jeans (Mint), Shoes (Cotton On).

Although we are living in a tropical country, I really love wearing sweaters layering it with a button down shirt underneath. Style wise, it breaks up the monotonous wearing of just plain shirt and pants. But don’t get me wrong, I only wear these kind of clothes during night or rainy seasons. 

Allowing the bottom edge of the shirt to be partly seen below the sweater harmonizes with the tucked in collar.

Paired the layered top with my ripped jeans to pull of a little bit of a badass look. Finished the whole look with a pair of blue shoes matchy-matchy with my sweater.

Me, tryna pose like any other blogger. LOL!

And me, having some headache. Joke! Haha. Well so much more of the outfit I wore during the event, let’s go back to David Guison’s meet and greet!

So that was him standing in front of us ready for some Q&A with his readers. Finally got to see him right in front of me plus we’re breathing the same air. Haha!

And these are some of the lucky readers of David Guison who got to ask him some questions and tips during the meet and greet. Spot me!!!

Of course, I wouldn’t let pass the day without me having a photo op with DG. Woohoo!

Till my next blog post! Haha.

Took outfit shots early this morning and felt like posting them on the blog today as well. Wow, that’s a first for me! I’m usually very lazy lol. That’s #OOTD at its best! Keeping it simple today because I want my new baby to be the star here. Yes, the new Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic is finally out! I’m going to the launch event in a bit and this is the outfit I came up with! I wanted the color palette of my outfit to match the new instax! Hope you guys like it! 

What I’m wearing: tweed blazer (H&M), shirt (H&M), drop crotch pants (H&M), instax mini 90 neo classic (Fujifilm), boots (Palladium). Hype this on lookbook here

Tweed blazer from H&M | Grey shirt from H&M | I am digging this blazer because of the fit and fabric. Two important things you should consider when buying clothes! The blazer sort of looks like it has built in dandruff but I like it! LOL what am I saying. I guess it’s too early for my brain to function haha! 

Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic from Fujifilm | The new instax gets a few extra features such as macro mode, bulb mode and my favorite–the double exposure mode! By pressing the shutter button twice, you can superimpose 2 different images in one frame! I’m still getting the hang of it! I’ll share you the photos I took soon! 

I own an Instax mini 7S and a mini 8 but I have to say, the Mini 90 Neo Classic is the best one yet! Not only is it equipped with tons of new features and functions but it looks sleek and masculine as well, don’t you think? I didn’t even bother wearing any other accessories today! 

Boots from Palladium | After months of beating up these babies, they’re finally as slouchy as I wanted them to be! The bird poop on my left shoe was a nice touch as well, haha!

I have zero halloween spirit this year. I guess this is what happens when you’re catching up on so many deadlines. I’ve been sick the whole week as well so I wasn’t really productive. But I’m so happy I got to watch tons of horror films plus I got to catch up on the new season of The Walking Dead. Let’s see if my friends and I will be able to whip something up for tonight! What are your plans for Halloween?

What I’m wearing: shirt (Topman), sweatshirt used as a wraparound (Topman), drop crotch pants (H&M), snapback (Color Super), calculator watch (Watch Factory), sneakers (New Balance). Hype this on lookbook here.

Shirt from Topman | I wore this to a styling gig a few weeks ago for a local brand. I’m not a t-shirt kind of guy but if ever I wear one, I make sure it’s pretty darn stylish. Haha! I’m really digging the Sub Sports collection of Topman this season! The new collection reflects the growing trend towards modern-day sportswear and contemporary street wear. 

Cap from Color Super

Sorry for being random but I just wanna share you guys my new pastime–Paktor! It’s a social networking app that allows people with similar interests to connect with one another. Paktor is built on the principles of locality, usability, and anonymity. It’s a fun way to meet new people! I’ll warn you now–it’s addicting! You guys can download it for free at the App Store and Google Play. Find me there and let’s chat, yes? 

Calculator watch from Watch Factory | The perfect watch for people who are bad at math–like me! Haha!

to dazzle with light

weeks before summer officially started, there’s this event that made me feel that summer is just days away. That i’m about to experience hot summer nights, tan lines, endless eating and of course the memories that we can’t forget. 

last February me and my friends were invited to attend our best friends swimming party that was held at bulacan. The call time for us to meet up is at 8 am as usual since i’m very lazy to pack my things up the night before the event i woke up at 6 am just to pack my things and to plan the outfits that i’ll be working with. 

time check - 8:30 am my friend (keon) she picked me up at 8:30 am and we got to our school (because that’s our meeting place) and as we count off we’re all ready to go and enjoy the day!   for this moment on i would like to thank david guison, for being such an inspiration to us! my inspiration in my outfit the none other than David! 

My outfit was kind of a mixture of grunge and summer with the plaid on my waist and marijuana print on my shirt it was totally grunge. The panama hat and bag were just so summer! 

Panama Hat - SM Accessories ( i’ve realized that it’s really super hot in bulacan and the weather is just a blast! so panama hats are a perfect excuse to protect our flawless faces )

Traveller’s Bag - Gola ( the perfect bag for outing or anything that involves outdoor activities. it can put a lot of stuff in it and there are enough pocket to store the things that we’re gonna bring. ) 

that’s me and my other best friend (geraldin) who have helped me in a lot of things that involves fashion! the person i always asked if this outfit looks good on me and if i should buy this and that. Yes! we’re just planning what to pose on that photo. 

Marijuana Shirt - Radical MNL ( you just got to love our shop! Sad to say that shirt was already bought by a friend. ) 

Shorts - Guess ( one of my favorite shorts to use! This was actually my dad’s he gave it to me and so i decided to just cut the pants to short. the short even looks brand new on the photo ) 

Plaid polo - thrifted 

Just for the record that day was one of the best days of my entire life me and my friends just had a lot of fun celebrating keon’s birthday, and every moment was always a good time For the last time Happy Birthday Kaye! 

THE DG MANILA

As I enter the world of fashion, I mean when I start posting OOTDs and squared photos on Instagram, I already declared myself as a Blogger. Never thought that I still don’t have any blogs then. Honestly, I really don’t have any idea of what a bloggers are doing before, until my friend introduced DG to me. At first, everything seems normal. I followed Mr. Guison and just casually liking his posts. But as the times passed by, I didn’t notice myself looking at his OOTDs first before choosing what will I wear for the day, meaning I am already captured by his outfits. And then one time, he uploaded something showing about the DGMNL App. Never knew that it can also be found on the Internet. Haha! That was my very first time to read a fashion blog ever. And I admit, reading is not my thing before. But today, reading David Guison’s blogs are already part of my daily basis.

I always found myself thinking of ways to meet this guy, ask him questions, chat, make my handkerchief signed with a diamond logo haha! and take a picture. And then I saw something about the #BU9xSMART. And then it happened, I attended and really enjoyed the event. But all my plans are ruined by shyness, except for the picture taking ofcourse. I know that next times are always there and I promise to do better. Maybe on Bloggers United 10 or we’ll just meet somewhere out there. Hoping that I already have enough courage on that day. Thanks for always inspiring your readers. Thank you David Guison (The famous blogger from Manila) From Alden Rebong (The frustrated blogger from Laguna)

WACKY!

Preloved from David Guison.

And just like that, summer is officially over. It has been raining almost everyday and if you’ve seen my previous outfit post, it’s the complete opposite of this outfit! But for some reason, I like the rainy season more–not just because of the cold weather or the fact that I could layer (lol) but I’m actually more productive! See, I was able to publish 3 blog posts this week–and it’s only a Tuesday! Haha! Anyway, here’s what I wore today.

What I’m wearing: denim jacket (Levi’s), button down (American Eagle Outfitters), sweatpants (A.M.S. Clothing), beanie (Sinstar), watch (Puma), all originals (Adidas). Hype this on lookbook.nu here.

Denim jacket from Levi’s | Button down from American Eagle Outfitters | I’m a big fan of the plaid/checkered and denim jacket combo. It instantly looks badass! 

Sweatpants from A.M.S. Clothing | Established by young entrepreneurs, A.M.S. stands for affordable, modish and simple. The clothes they offer are good for everyday wear but they add little details which makes it so special! 

Sneakers from Adidas All Originals | Adidas sure knows how to keep sneaker fanatics entertained–they always keep it fresh and original. I am amazed at how the brand has evolved and I love the fact that they don’t just carry training/workout shoes anymore!

Bloggers United 9

School days are approaching again and I feel like this summer break isn’t satisfying yet – until Last Saturday, when the Bloggers United 9 was held. Catherine and I decided to attend this time’s BU to enjoy and have fun before we ‘devote’ ourselves into much school works this semester. 

We were so excited that we took the wrong bus and our supposedly 2-hour trip ended up being 3. Thankfully, we still managed to arrive there at about 9:30, leaving us half an hour to prepare ourselves for the event. 

It is held in Whitespace Manila, located at Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati City. It’s spacious enough to hold every blogger’s booth, yet it still became cramped due to the large crowd.
