G-star RAW now in Manila

Denim is a staple in our country because of its versatility and sturdiness. If you're a denim lover, there's a new player in town: G-Star RAW.

G-Star RAW is a luxury Dutch brand that's famous abroad for its unwashed, untreated - or raw - denim. It has a militaristic feel to it, with streetwise pockets and edgy zippers conveniently sewn in the fabric. The brand is currently available in 6,000 selling points world wide, with flagship stores located in top fashion capitals such as New York City, Paris, and London. 

And now, the brand is finally in the Philippines. Here are some of the essential G-Star looks to cop!

My favorite!

The Promod Denim Bar

You guys know that I'm already happy with the jeans I have, so when Promod launched their Denim Bar, I wasn't that interested in getting a pair. They gave the guests GCs to spend on whatever we want so I went around the store looking for something to buy. A new bag? This cute cardigan? So many nice finds inside the store! Jeans were frankly the last thing on my mind. The Promod product managers insisted that I try a pair, but I politely declined.

But then I saw Shen, Tara, and a couple of other ladies clutching jeans to the cashier. I asked them why and all I got were raves! That was the point I decided to try the jeans on for myself. And this, my dear readers, is what the fuss is about.

Love the fit, love the stretch fabric, love the understated wash.

Weekend market wear

I blogged last Saturday that I was off to Mercato Centrale, posting along with it a crappy web cam photo of my Topshop t-shirt. Lol. Nona (the lone commenter) asked to see what my outfit looks like.

This is not it:

Topshop burnout tee/ SM belt and elephant necklace/ Folded & Hung shorts/ Ichigo pink flats (not shown)

I thought this outfit was cute, but I found it a bit dressy for a casual two-hour stroll to a weekend market. Because seriously most girls there are just in their jeans and t-shirts, with barely any makeup on. I would hate to be overdressed for something that's supposed to be chill.

So I wore this instead!

Mannish basics

Have you checked up on your closet lately? In all your shopping sprees, have you remembered to stock up on the absolute basics? I did a closet sweep last week and noticed that out of my many my white t-shirts, I didn't have THE white t-shirt: a Hanes v-neck cotton shirt! How could I have been so foolish all these years?

The small size fit me perfectly, and better yet, it only cost me a little more than P200. How cool is that?

So anyway, speaking of basics, I love how the combination of my straight-cut Levi's jeans, Charles & Keith leather loafers, and thrifted faux leather jacket looks like! It's relaxed yet extremely stylish. Perfect for errand days and for meeting with friends. I also love that I can easily amp the look up with some accessories and crazy high heels.
