...good seems hard to learn. But if you have courage to step-out your house, whatever you're wearing and take note of the negative comments, you'll get used to it.
The first time I remember I want to look good was when A1 (boy band) released an album (I think it's "Here We Come"). They were in their 'matinee idol' looks, and I said to myself I should look that way too. I asked my dad to buy me a denim jacket (which is still in my closet) from a sale at Robinson's Department Store in Metropolis (Starmall Alabang today). My dad chose a bigger size of the denim jacket. He believes I can't use it often, which is true. haha I wore it in our Christmas Party. That was in December 1999.

The next thing I remember, I always wear big shirts and pants when I was in high school. That's a Hip Hop swagger! Lol! But in the latter years of my high school, I changed my wardrobe to formal shirts and straight-cut pants (Not into slim-fit pants yet), which I also carried to my college days.

My sense in style improved when my ex-girlfriend bought me a slim-fit shirt. It looked good to me and I liked it (See photo below.).
That's the time I started wearing slim-fit shirts and pants. A close friend of mine, Marlon, told me that I should get back with my hairstyle way back in high school, the 'shark hair'. I did it for months, but I got bored...

After years of searching to the internet (one of the sites is yesstyle.com, which was referred to me by Marlene), I have made my own style. It's my parents who contributed a lot to my sense of style (most of my clothes were chosen by them, not me). K-Pop Icons and Garage Magazine has helped a lot too!
What's my style? It's my mood. :)
