PosturaPH Challenge (Oxygen)

I am a Filipino. I must patronize the products in my own country. #PosturaPH Challenge is easy for me with the help of the only store I trust: OXYGEN.

Oxygen is a fashion-forward clothing store starts with minimalism designs, futuristic cuts and drapes, sheer dresses and tops. That's why I choose this store because all you need/wants is here; Formal/ Business/Outdoor/Party attires for men and women, Accessories like accentuated rings/ earrings/ beaded necklaces/ round scarfs/ fierce eye-wears, tempting perfumes and  Shoe wears. Head Turning, Trendsetting Fashion. Now Filipinos conquered the World Runway and that's because of OXYGEN.

When I enter any of the Oxygen stores, I smile, It makes me feel like I'm on a party because of the music. Pretty much like when fishing out garment that you want, my body goes along with it, I really love the beat . When you walked out  from the store after purchasing, I feel like a model walking on a runway. I really love the beat  That's the reason why  when I go to Hub, Oxygen must be the first store that I'm gonna visit. 

What I'm wearing: (LEFT) Marcela Guttierez T-shirt and Criss-cross Sandals . (RIGHT) Sheer Top with Plunging neckline gray t-shirt, Acid-washed Bag and Gray Pants. (All From Oxygen)

Summer Sunshine is here! Temperature rising. Let our skin absorb the ray of light! Purchase sunblock, sunnies for skin protection 'cause summer heat is getting hot and hot. 

Unfortunately, I think I'm gonna spend my Summer here in the Metro. Lemme' experience and compare what Manila will share it with me. My body wants to soak all day long to a beach, wear swimming trunks , make sand castle, missing the summer air, the very loud and high increment waves and the salty sea water. Reminiscing my childhood years back in our province, i want to cry now. But since there's no sands here in Manila, Pool is OK for now. 

What I'm wearing: Blue jeans long sleeves (TOPMAN), White Printed Top SM Men's Fashion (SM MEN'S FASHION), Orange Shorts (GUCCI) , Dark orange lace ups (FOREVER 21). Check out and HYPE it on LOOKBOOK and VOTE it to CHICTOPIA

Friendly Reminder: Don't forget to hydrate yourself to prevent Heat Shock. Drink at least 8-10 glasses per day. Quench yourself cause Heat wave is steeping. Cheerio!
