Part III of the Steppie shoot! Last set coming up tomorrow! Seeing as how summer is coming up, shorts season is almost here! What better to wear than a pair of light chambray shorts! Nice and light chambray shorts paired perfectly with a monochromatic blue look for a cool day in the sun.

Peter X Steppie Part II

More tanks and beanies! This shoot was certainly wild, glad to be releasing the second set of looks from the Steppie Clothing shoot! What do you guys think of the pants? Great, not great? Meh? awesome? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

For me, printed pants are kinda like ex girlfriends. You like them a lot for a little while, then you shun them for years, then after several years, it doesn't get quite as awkward seeing them on the streets. But then you see old pictures with them and you think to yourself, "what was I ever thinking?"

Hey guys! Today I will NOT be sharing an outfit I styled myself. But instead pictures of a modelling shoot I did for Steppie clothing! Check out their clothes here! I love the way Joey Thao styled me, a stray away from my natural basic/clean cut style, but I love it! Let me know what you guys think!

Sorry for the lame falling out for the past week. After coachella, Bobby Raffin and my buddy Tim came to stay over, so we've been out and about for the past week and I've completely neglected you guys. Well That neglect is semi over! Here is a quick short post featuring Akufuncture's clean crisp varsity jacket. Also for the winners of the Art Giveaway, there is a SLIGHT delay, I'll be on that again sure enough.

El Mirage

First day of Coachella is officially over for me! No regrets, such a great place to be. Sadly for me, I don't do drunk/drink and other such stuff so the festival itself is not as enjoyable for me. The part I love is just the vibe and the community, fashion forward, free, and fun. I just love it. Let's me explore the inner free spirit in myself. The result? Outfits like these!

This outfit kinda reminds me of walking dead haha, which soon I'll be doing an outfit series for with Yoshi! I'll go more into detail about it later. Love you all!

If you're a bird, I'm a bird

Photos by: Nick Sutjongdro                           Shirt by: Rhythm Livin                             Sweater by: Hollister                                 Shorts by: H&M                                 Shoes by: Aldo

If you're a bird...I'm a bird...NOT. Who'd wanna be a bird, I'd hate to just eat nuts and worms. Don't get me wrong, flying is cool and all but I like being a human.

Movin onto more important things, Brand Pigeonholing. Many people refuse to wear clothes made by a certain brand they don't like because of a negative connotation that it may or may not have.Which is terribly sad, why limit yourself?

So what IS brand pigeonholing you ask? Well glad you asked.

Bran Pigeonholing 

/brandˈpijən ˈhōliNG/

To create a preconceived idea about a brand and all their piece.


Brand Stereotyping

Common failings of Brand pigeonholing schemes include:
  • Buying expensive brands only (in some cases, this makes sense, but not always, it is good to know your brands as well, just keep an open mind)
  • Not wearing pieces that may complement your figure simply because the piece is of a brand you dislike (If you can find an H&M piece that fits just as nicely as a zara fit, why not?)
  • Brands may change over time, so they no longer fit the category in which they have been placed (F21 may decide to step up their game)
So what is the point of all this? Many people will choose not to wear this sweater simply because it's Hollister. And true, Hollister may have a terrible connotation from the past, but who cares. If you like it, wear it, if it makes you confident, wear it! Plus, this sweater was super soft and half the price and double the quality American Apparel makes.

Wild Wild West

Photos by: Bethany Struble                                    Backpack by: Coach

It's obvious that this coach backpack is my favorite one...or my only one for that matter. I need more backpacks, too bad I'm broke. Oh well, speaking of broke, I went on a mountain trip recently. And I don't know if you know this about me, but I love nature! Nature hikes, nature walks, nature centers, natural girls, you name it! So here are some of the OOTD pictures from the western town that we visited before heading to a nature walk. It's not as fashion forward or extremely exciting as other outfits, but hey, sometimes, a guy's just gotta be comfortable, yadadamean? ;]

-Beige Pants
-White wifebeater/tanktop

Livin' Easy Livin' Free

So if you haven't noticed, I am in love with motorcycles! In fact I have two, this is my new one, I named her Carol. This bike is going to be fully customized, it is already customized but not fully done just yet. Not by a long shot. So I figured what better way to show this bike off than with a custom pair of 501s. Not only is the bike custom, like the pants, it is also a classic bike. This beauty is a 1974 Honda cb750, classic but custom, just like my pants. Because when I think classic, Levi's always pops up in my mind, as I'm sure it does in all of your minds. 
So I decided to pair the two up, I hope you all enjoy! Tell me what you think in the comments below.
