Subtle textures. I’m obsessed with subtle textures. And holes. And perforations. I wore this ultra bright white fall/winter 2012 3.1 Phillip Lim textured men’s jacket with a white mesh tee from Uniqlo and my now-classic leather and suede perforated shorts from Alexander Wang which I bought a few months back from Opening Ceremony. It’s funny because I initially had reservations shelling out a couple of hundred dollars for a pair of leather shorts but I’ve worn these to DEATH this season. There are very few things in life that are worth every penny earned. This is one of those things.
No, really, I’m a cowboy. I’m able to survive in harsh conditions and I’m also game for pretty much most things in life with the exception of the following: electrical outlets, roller coasters and anything that involves me dangling in the air. Don’t ask; the older I get, the more I fear heights. Rumi wanted to take the scenic lift ride at the Park City Mountain Resort in Utah. I failed in trying to steer her to do something else. I guess it’s fair that I join her especially with the drive from Salt lake City. Trust me, I was petrified beyond belief for the first fifteen minutes of the ride, frozen legs and all. It’s the first time I rode the lift and boy I’m glad I did! I’m very curious what Park City Mountain Resort looks like in the winter though…

The weather is rather unpredictable here in Milan (switches between cold and hot every hour) so after Dolce & Gabbana, I changed into another outfit before going to Missoni.

Alexander Wang’s Andrea boots are so cute. I love the slits, the laces and the shape! I’m always on the hunt for nice flat boots and these babies are just right. I could see this as an every day shoe — perfect for those days when all you want to do is to chillax in a sweater and a pair of skinnies.

People always, always shake their heads in disbelief whenever I tell them I need to be home early the night before a Chanel show. It’s important for a girl to get a lot of sleep. Afterall, one has to wake up early. I like to go to the Grand Palais at least an hour before the show starts to see what the incredible Karl is up to. What I like about Chanel shows (at least the ones I’ve been to) is that you can guess the theme of the set based on the invitation. I had a hint that it’s going to be an aquatic set when I received mine. However, no amount of guessing or hinting can replace the actual experience of being there and seeing it for yourself. Karl and his team have always blown my mind (and expectations) away. They turned the Grand Palais into a magical ocean bed, complete with underwater creatures — octopus, seahorses, fish, clams, starfishes, etc.

I had lots of fun at Alexander Wang’s frat-themed after party last night. It was all about glowsticks, astroturf, oversized beer bottles and cans. I even tried jello shots for the first time. They were so good I had three!
Summer is almost over. Are you ready for the new season? Behold the Alexander Wang glitter trousers from his fall/winter 2011 show.

DYING. MUST-HAVE. #JUSTSAYING.
And the backpack obsession continues. I fell in love with this Alexander Wang leather and canvas backpack the first time I saw it when Rumi and I went to the Opening Ceremony store in LA. We both weren’t in shopping mode at that time so I held off for a few days before buying it on Shopbop. It’s been years, no decades, since I last used a backpack heavily. It feels so good and liberating to be able to walk around the city streets with free hands and free arms, no wonder this bag is now my day-to-day bag. Cue ‘rolling with my homies’…
