Day 21/365: Urban Chill

Day 21/365: Urban Chill

January 21, 2011 (Friday)

The weather is very nice for the past 2 weeks and the wind blows gives you some chill. Now I missed the San Fransisco City cool and foggy weather and the autumn and pre winter wind of New York City. Not too late for me though, here are some styles tips for a chill weather.

They said, never wear brown and earth shades during the winter. It’s just those black, navy blue and shades of gray, but the most stylish season for me is fall and the pre winter and my style is always on the shades of brown- if it’s not snowing yet.

If its really cold, its really freezing cold! So cover your head with a nice hat, that match the color of your scarf. You can do two layers of scarves, the inner one is a nice silky or soft cloth to protect your neck, and the outer is the thick fabric, either a wool or cashmere. There are some fabric combination which depends on your taste of style.

Wear a thick jacket that is comfortable and light, there are some thermal jackets that is too huge, but what is important is the jacket fabric helps to bounce the cold wind and your hands, neck or head is protected for a safe walk on a 5 C to 15 C in the street.

The pants could be any jeans that is thick enough and should be on a dark color, unless your to fancy to sport an attire like a horse jockey player 😛

Shoes for me is any, as long as your comfortable. But preferably leather shoes.

Where to find good stuff for an Urban Chill Weather?

Zara Man is always my top choice. It’s their style and the fabric they used gives an assurance of high quality clothing and the price is actually affordable.

Day 2/365

“The Wedding”

Could be almost a hundred I attended, I lost count.
It never started on time, it’s always Filipino Time
The color motif’s is so diverse, gold-yellow, red-gold, silver-pink, etc etc.
Dont forget it’s always the bride choice!

The bride gowns were all design beautifully! in ecrue, pure white, sometimes even in red! (Regine Velasquez)
But one thing for sure.. It’s a bride choice!
The flowers..Wow! the couple picks it up in every details.
From the bride’s bouquet to the church isles upto the reception tables, very colorful, elegantly prepared
And its always the brides choice 🙂

The wedding songs, so lovely to hear, sometimes I feel I am in the concert hall.
I have to remind the singers, hey guys! your singing for the vows! dont yell too much to hit the pitch 🙂
And the list of songs? tell me, is it always a brides choice?

The Wedding, well planned, beautifully arranged
The money and the emotions attached to it.
It is the couples investment to celebrate the bondage
Is it a brides choice still?

I disagree!
It all started when the guy breaks the words..
Will you Marry Me?
It’s always a man’s choice 🙂

Then, the Wedding, the ceremonial vows of love forever and ever.
