Lookbook: Like a Good Soldier

"Good Soldier"

Attention! I’m about to share a secret–

If you’re working out and you want people to notice–wear shirts that are a size smaller than you normally wear. No, I’m not saying you should wear a smaller size–just a size smaller than your usual clothes. That would definitely make people notice your physique.

Lookbook: Urban Jungle

"Urban Jungle"

 

Hoodie alert! We found this very comfortable camouflage hoodie at SM Department Store for cheap. And it’s not even on sale!

Teejay Marquez is a Filipino model-actor who has appeared in television programs such as Tween Hearts, Time of My Life, Ikaw Lang ang Mamahalin, and Home Sweet Home. He regularly appears as a host and performer on Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman, which airs just before each Saturday ends on GMA-7.


Lookbook: The Hipster

"The Hipster"

“Hipster,” by definition is a person who follows the latest trends and fashion. Wikipedia has a longer definition that makes hipsters sound way cooler, so you can check that out too. Here in the Philippines though, hipsters bring to mind the image of someone in suspenders, cropped pants, and square-framed glasses.

Sounds familiar? It sounds like Nathan from Tween Hearts, doesn’t it? Except, hipsters are definitely way cooler than he is. Which is why we’ve married the two images together–with me, Teejay, as the common denominator.
