A Hipster at Urban Abode

Are you a hipster?

According to Urban Dictionary, Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. 

Consequently many hipsters tend to have jobs in the music, art, and fashion industries. Hipsters are also very racially open-minded, and the greatest number of interracial couples in any urban environment are typically found within the hipster subculture. Although hipsters are technically conformists within their own subculture, in comparison to the much larger mainstream mass, they are pioneers and leaders of the latest cultural trends and ideals. For example, the surge of jeans made to look old and worn (i.e. "distressed"), that have become prevalent at stores such as The Gap, American Eagle, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Hollister, were originally paraded by hipsters who shopped in thrift stores years before such clothing items were mass produced and sold to the mainstream consumer.

So are you a hipster? =))

Had a shoot last week at this cool and unusual furniture shop in Home Depot Ortigas, URBAN ABODE.

I wanted to bring home so many things (I actually don't need but I just want to put them in my room) hahaha!

Visit URBAN ABODE at Home Depot Ortigas! It's right across one of my fave coffee shops Edition / Habitual Coffee.
