A Lookbook Shoot by Kars Cabalda x Jorx Balitbit
It was last week when my buddy called and thought of having a shoot, until days passed by and we never really sat and talked about it. Until he confirmed to me a schedule the day before.
Since no details were discussed, not even the concept! All I know was I am an awesome friend, and I’ll definitely show up no matter how chaotic my work situation at present. — Yes Kars, you owe me. So you better buy me as much Tim Tams and Pods as you can at Melbourne! :p
I only got the easiest I can snatch from my closet morning before, without thinking if everything will mash together.
And while on location, I came in as I am all haggard from office, made adjustments here and there, thus surprisingly lands me on my first look.

Hype this look on lookbook here.
Everyone owns their oldest pair of jeans, and I am proud to say I can still wear my 7 year old pair. Wow. Haha!
This has always been my savior whenever I’m in doubt my top and shoes will never match, or should I say it is ‘my most trusted’ pants. From its fit, unquestioned quality, comfort, and my favorite “transition effect” from wearing a formal top to whatever footwear.
As for my chosen prints for my top; I never see anything wrong combining floral prints, for as long as colors match or belongs to the same shade. Notice how different the kimono from my top? Yet it clicks pairing them together. I like calling print on print styling a “controlled chaos”. Yeah?
