Summer Style

BangCock is sooooo deep into the summer season. We have around 35 degrees nearly everyday since March and the unbelievable humidity is draining the hell out of me.

On weekends I simply refuse to leave my building until at least four in the afternoon, and even then the heat can still cause buckets of sweat to drip from my frail body. Choz!

I hate summer, I really do. But wait, it's going to get worse now that we just stepped into April. Can I sleep through summer, please? And if I can, wake me up when the rains come, will you?

Now if there's anything cute about summer is that I have the chance to reinvent my daily wardrobe. It's ironic that I'm into this black (and sometimes gray) phase when we should all be wearing colors for the season. But I've already explained before why I'm back to black.

Fortunately, I invested in flimsy black t-shirts, which can still be appropriate for BangCock's sweltering heat.

I feel sooooo liberated now that I'm wearing predominantly black. Uniform anyone? I don't have the daily dilemma of thinking hard over what to wear. And I can even don the same set of shirts week after week without anyone noticing it.

You wanna take a peek of my summer looks?

Well, I'm doing a lot of the rolling of the pants thing. I truly love its casual effect, especially when worn with my faux-leather sneakers.

I'm also experimenting with a black hat lately, which seems practical in shielding the face from harmful UV rays, di ba?

Oh, and please take note of the bag in the picture below. I got it from Chatuchak last December and it says LOWCLASS. So me, non?

Lookie, lookie Fuchsiaboy... I'm wearing the super diaphanous black tee from Giordano Concepts that you sent me. But because it's practically a baby tee, I layered it with my striped, moneyboy shirt (right Bangkok Bitch?).

Oh, also notice the shorts? I'm cutting many of my old jeans and trousers to make them more summer-appropriate.
May I also show you my first Playhound t-shirt? Playhound is a relatively popular brand in Thailand, mainly among young people. But as a minimum-wage earner, I've always found their prices too steep.

Fortunately, they had a sale last January (or was that February, Kiks?) so I bought this cute shirt with Playhound's signature Mickey Mouse prints. I realized later on that it is actually a girl's tee, and I could not be more pleased!

Another relatively new acquisition is this Greyhound shirt. Greyhound is the older sister of Playhound, and of course more pricey. They also had a sale last Jan/Feb and God knows that it was my only chance to buy anything from them, hence this black shirt. I bought it mainly for collection purposes.

I plan to slowly collect more stuff from Thai designers and fashion houses. I'm crazy over their clothes. Makes me want to sell my body everytime I covet any of their items coz even if they are locally made they are still Mahalia Jackson.

I really, really want a piece from Theatre, Headquarters, Baking Soda, Tube Gallery, ANR, and all those other shops in Siam Centre.

But wait, I also NEED a piece from WWA (see their blog here), that sensational avant garde clothing store in Siam Square that Fuchsiaboy and I want to raid. But dahling, one shirt is the cost of a roundtrip ticket to Las Islas Filipinas... and you know me, I choose an edgy shirt over seeing my family, chai mai?

Now who do I need to blow around here who'd give me all the money for those clothes?
