For someone who has a daily entertainment show like IC Mendoza, shopping regularly is a must.
The budding entertainment talk show host said it's imperative for him to look for clothes at least every week so he could avoid wearing the same outfit too often. He adds, "Kasi parang magandang activity 'yun para sa akin."
When asked when he usually shops, the Zara and Topman fan says, "Kapag maraming pera. Depende sa raket. Ako, [dahil] may show ako ng Sunday [and] may daily [show] ako, [I shop] every week."
And he usually shops for "blazers, polo. Bihira mo akong makikitang naka-T-shirt kasi conscious ako sa leeg ko. Feeling ko pangit ang leeg ko," IC says with a laugh.
During the interview, we noticed that IC was carrying a Gucci bag, which was given to him by Daisy Romualdez. So we asked him if he also regularly shops for bags.
The son of entertainment columnist Dolly Anne Carvajal says it's impractical to buy too many bags. But for him, it would be good to buy bags from signature brands once in a while as an investment.
"Hindi naman 'yun para magyabang e," explains IC. "Pero magandang investment kapag branded. Kapag bumili ka nito, magagamit mo for 50 years. E kung bibili ka ng fake, pero bibili ka rin every year, huwag na lang."
We also asked IC what his considerations are when buying clothes or bags. "Ako, basta gusto ko. Depende sa kung wala sa price range ko or sobrang mura lang, bibilhin ko basta sobrang gusto ko," says IC.
