aivanmagno 's Thoughts:

I’ve been seeing a lot of African Influences on Designer’s collection recently. From sweaters and beanies to bags and killer boots. While paying for the bag and vest, my mom asked me for the tenth time if I was sure with what I was doing. She told me people might think I’m an Igurot and they might laugh at me. Whatever.

I decided to be more “nationalistic” and somewhat International this Spring/Summer. Here in the third world, Spring is turning on your electric fan to number three or setting your AC to Medium Cool. Anyways, for those of you who read my blog, you probably recognize my bleached shirt.

What is your must-have REVOLVE item for spring, and how would you style it? Like what men.style.com said, “Nothing wrong with traditional brown boat shoes, but with everyone from Sperry to Gucci doing creative new riffs, why not go for something more up to date than the ones JFK sported? Try a streamlined new silhouette or a splashy color instead.” That’s why my must-have item for Spring/Summer are these new wave boat shoes from Band of Outsiders Sperry Topsiders. It also comes in pink

Imma pair these killer shoes with my Igurot vest, rolled up shorts and bleached shirts! I’ll finish it up with baggillion of bracelets! Hahaha! How’s that for Spring and Summer? Can’t wait to rock them boat shoes and rolled up shorts!
