Tog du jour: Hard Knocks

Contrasts: hues, textures, details, colours. Tog du jour. Infuse a distinct polarity in circumstances. Refuse the standardised denotation of lifestyle. Curb and be curbed. Magnify failings constructively; choose to hold on to the trump card. Exercise separation and functionalism. Disrupt your routine once in a while. Blue moon came and went, a chance to make it your whipping boy — or not. Be robust. Venture into the uncertain without second guessing yourself. Lunge for that once in a lifetime opportunity. Leap. Be an iconoclast. The universe will surprise you.

With all the choices that life presents, a specter of that object which tapers your path to a resolution is rare. Recurring images shouldn’t be ignored. Tap, tap, tap. Hello, it is then.

Earthy x Practical

Distressed x Tough

Taking on the risk of appearing destitute, when it really is worn out of mirth and what I’d like to see as a lighthearted retrospect of a generation whose style becomes the current economic events. Reversely la-di-da since it retailed for Php 2,250.00. I was referring to the distressed jeans. The ring retailed for Php 895.00. Both are also from Mango.

Put in equal amounts of effort in distinguishing the points of disparity and balance in all things.

What sort of contrasts have you noticed lately?
