Channeling DG MNL.

The risk of having a photo taken by a friend: Blurry photos. Out of 7 shots, it’s all I can get. Anyway, Im obviously taking David Guison as an inspiration (Rhymes!) Haha. DIY top I learned from Kryz, F&H Denim Designer Series, From Japan socks, So fab shoes. Yay!!!

Here’s an idea on what you can wear to a music festival! More than rocking out to their favorite bands, people go to musical festivals to dress up and show off their “Coachella-inspired” style–laid back, artsy and cool. I’m going to the biggest music fest this summer. Yup, I’m talking about the Close Up Summer Solstice! Happening this April 27 at the MOA Concert Grounds. What do you guys think of this look? Should I wear this to the music festival? 

What I’m wearing: tank top (Cotton On), feather necklace (Cravemore), plaid shirt (Chief), pants (Topman), bracelets (SM Accessories), boots (American Eagle). Hype this on lookbook.nu here.

Tank top from Cotton On | Manks, or “man tanks” are a music festival favorite. Wear it under a chambray or a plaid button down. 

Feather necklace from Cravemore  

Leather bracelets from SM Accessories 

Combat boots from American Eagle | Nope, this brand is not associated with the American Eagle denim brand. Doesn’t it remind you of your high school/college ROTC boots? Scored these online for only php1,300! Not bad! These type of boots are perfect when going to music fests as they provide good ankle support, work great in muddy fields and protection from people stepping on you. lol

Canon PowerShot D20 | You guys know how wild music festivals can get so make sure you bring a sturdy waterproof/shockproof camera to take photos/videos with your friends or your favorite bands!

About a month ago I challenged my readers to show me their own interpretation of the classic sweater + jeans + sneakers combo (same with my outfit post) and we finally have a winner! Congratulations to Patrick Sison! Thanks to Benetton, he was able take home php10,000 worth of clothes! Wow!!!

I accompanied Patrick at The United Colors of Benetton store in Bonifacio High Street. We were buddies right away! Check out his winning entry here. (You can check out all the entries here as well). Let’s start shopping! 

For Patrick’s first look, we tried to keep it casual with a pair of slim-cut jeans, a graphic shirt and a button down. I love how it looks effortless but still stylish. Something I’d definitely wear! Let’s keep looking! 

For my outfit (nakikisali? hahah), I wore a navy blue cardigan over a sweatshirt (from Benetton of course). United Colors of Benetton offers a wide selection of button down shirts, polo shirts, sweaters, cardigans, graphic shirts, jeans, belts and shoes!  

For Patrick’s second look, he wore something more dressy–but still good to wear for a casual day. 

Refinement mixed with sporting touches, a formal smartness combined with comfort: the United Colors of Benetton Spring/Summer 2013 collection will suit any guy looking for style and comfort. 

This look is similar to the first one but with a different graphic shirt. Threw in a messenger bag just to get a feel of the whole outfit. Looks pretty good! 

Yup, they have shoes too! Patrick brought his sister with him too. They’re both very stylish themselves! It’s also nice to know that they’re from Bicol! On to the next look! 

For this last look, Patrick wore a navy blue cardigan (same with what I’m wearing) over a navy blue sweatshirt. He liked the cardigan but it was too big on him. 

Pwede na bang twins? Haha Patrick liked the jeans so much because it’s very comfortable and the fit is great! It’s not too baggy nor skinny. Aaaaaand we’re done!

Patrick was able to get the button down, the jeans and the graphic shirt from look #1, the printed button down from look #2 and the graphic shirt from look #3. He got to add more items because the store was apparently on sale! Wow! 

Patrick is one happy kid! Thank you United Colors of Benetton for giving me the opportunity to shop and hang out with one of my readers! We had an awesome time! For more contests and giveaways, click here.

This May, the Philippines opens its doors to the newest fashion destination for European fast fashion–SUITEBLANCO!
