The Practical Dude

This idea came to me because of the questions I usually get about where I get my stuff. I was toying with the idea ever since I started my #bloggerdreams. I was hesitant because I was not sure what reaction I’ll get so I did not do it. With a helpful nudge from fellow bloggers  and the response of friends on a survey I posted, I’ve finally decided to give it a try. This post will try to give some tips on how to still look decent and on trend without burning a big hole in your pocket.  This is just a trial post. If it will gain a following, I might make it into a series.

Tip #1 : It’s not the brand, it’s how you wear it.

I have never been brand conscious. As long as it looks good on me and is reasonably priced, (meaning very inexpensive.) I’m all for it.

Tip #2 : Know which stores to visit.

Let’s face it, there are a lot of stores but not all of them will have what will suit you or your taste.

Tip #3 : Regularly visit these stores

Even if it is just to browse and window shop. It give you a general idea as to what is currently on trend. Plus you might just chance upon a random markdown sale.

Scored these awesome pair of Penshoppe slip-ons for more than half of their original price! Sweet!

Got them in green, just felt it’s an easy color to mix and match. Other colors available are maroon, navy blue, brown, black and gray.

Here’s how I would style them. This is something that you could sport for a chill out session with friends. If you are not that proud of your legs you could also pair them with jeans or jogger pants.

Whew! My first ever “fashion” post. I did not include a photo of me wearing it. I don’t have the guts to pull that off just yet. Maybe in the future. Haha.
