HOLLYWOOD, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles, Miami Bureau) – In the summer of 2015, Macy’s stopped selling Donald Trump’s line of menswear after the then presidential candidate said many Mexican immigrants were rapists or murderers.
Since the election of her father, Ivanka Trump and her branded merchandise have been dropped from several prominent American retailers, most notably Nordstrom.
Now, father and daughter are back with a vengeance. They have jointly launched a new art nouveau and avant-garde line of clothing that fashion experts are describing as “in your face.”
Well, that face is of Donald.
The new line, for both women and men, debuted at the recent San Diego Pride Parade. It will be carried by Costco, Walmart, Target and 7-Eleven stores nationwide.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Who could forget that inspiring and humbling moment when then Congresswoman Leni Robredo sneaked out of the red carpet ceremonies and took the back stairs to the plenary hall where NoyNoy Aquino’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) was to be delivered.
Last year, during President Rodrigo Duterte’s first SONA, the red carpet was scrapped in favor of a more simple and low-key ceremony.
It’s that time of year again. On July 24, Duterte will deliver his second SONA, and Robredo has had a change of heart and fashion sense. She wants to reinstate the red carpet.
Office of the Vice President spokesperson Georgina Hernandez told The Adobo Chronicles that Robredo so loved the blue evening gown she wore at the recent FASO gala in Los Angeles that she wants to wear it again in a closely-watched and followed public event like the SONA.
‘There was so little mainstream news media coverage of the FASO event that too few people saw how gorgeous the Vice President was in her multi-million peso blue gown,” Hernandez said. “This year’s SONA would be a perfect occasion for her to again wear that blue dress 👗.
So gird up your loins, the SONA Red Carpet Is back!
SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Gay men living in San Francisco have been hit hard by the economic downturn and are striving hard to cope.
It’s not only housing rent that’s skyrocketed in this City by the Bay. The cost of everything — from groceries to gas ⛽️ have become very prohibitive. Even fabric, to the dismay of the highly-fashionable community.
But as always, gay men find ways to weather the storm, boldly but surely.
Walking the streets of Castro, the gay district, one will notice a growing number of gay men wearing “crop top” t-shirts, a new fashion trend that uses minimal fabric (see photo).
It’s time to scan your closets and rip up (or down) your favorite t-shirts.
