A Very Thai Lunch

30/01/2013, Bangkok, Current Affairs, Fashion Designers

Back in Bangkok, I had lunch at the Greyhound Cafe (it’s a quintessential Bangkok institution) with several Thai designers. I told them that the pleasure was all mine. Although I’ve been to Bangkok a handful of times over the years, I never really had the opportunity to get to know the (thriving, if I may add) local fashion scene until now. Fun times!

My Soul In Seoul

25/01/2013, Current Affairs, Seoul

안녕하세요! Anyeong haseyo! Hello my dearest readers. I’m currently in Seoul, South Korea for a television project. I can’t share the details for now but you’ll find out in March when it airs. I’ve always wanted to go to Seoul for years but never really had the opportunity to do so until now. My mom (god bless her) is a huge fan of Korean soaps. She’s just as excited as I am that I’m here. I love this city so much! It’s one of my favourite Asian cities — the food, the shopping, my gosh, I don’t even know where to begin. I’ll update you guys later. I’m late for my haircut. I love you all!

13/01/2013, Bangkok, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, Milan, Swiss Airlines, Travel, Zurich

The high-speed train ride from Florence to Milan was so smooth I pretty much slept throughout the entire journey. One of the attendants woke me up just minutes before arriving into Milan’s Central Station.

That Metallic Burberry Coat

07/01/2013, Burberry, Current Affairs, Florence, Menswear, Spring Summer 2013

It’s only January but I’m so thrilled to get my hands on the new Spring 2013 merchandise that’s slowly trickling in at my favourite shops. This metallic Burberry Prorsum coat is pretty major. I’m not afraid of anything that shines!

Palazzo Capponi Firenze

06/01/2013, Current Affairs, Fashion Bloggers, Florence, Luisa Via Roma

My favourite online superstore Luisa Via Roma hosted a lovely dinner last night at Palazzo Capponi. As y’all know (from instagram, from twitter), I’m back in Florence once again for the bi-annual Luisa Via Roma Firenze4Ever event. I LOVE visiting Florence. It’s my favourite Italian city and oh so inspiring! Also happy to reunite with my real-life friends. Fun times all around!

Bryanboy photobombed by a tourist at the Lincoln Memorial

1. “Not being photobombed by a sports clothes-wearing person should be a basic human right.”

2. “I don’t like it when people get in the way of my frame. Tourists get their photos taken and upload them on their facebook to brag to their friends they went to a certain place. I, on the other hand, well, this is real work. If this wasn’t real work, I’m just gonna put my velour tracksuit and my sports shoes and call it a day.”

3. “I was trying things on at home to wear to the airport the night before I fly. While looking at the mirror with an outfit option, I suddenly remembered that I was being flown economy so I took off the white fox fur off my neck and packed it in my suitcase instead. Wait let me tweet that…”

4. “It just occurred to me that if you’re being flown coach, you need to tone your outfit down, otherwise, your outfit won’t make sense. It’s like ‘oh hay gurl you lewkin so divine but oh you’re like on the last row at the back near all the toilets’”

5. “I’m gonna have one suitcase for winter clothes and one suitcase for summer clothes. It’s an 8 day trip. Europe and Asia. Three days in Europe, four days in Asia. Wait, that’s three plus four, sorry, five days in Asia.”

6. “Someone from instagram told me about plebestrians. You know, pedestrians and plebs combined.”

7. “Oh oh oh oh oh I found something online, it’s like an Airbnb but it’s for dogs. It’s called DogVacay.com. You can pay someone like $30 a night to take care of your dog!”

8. “I have a question…. so you know how on planet Earth there’s land and there’s water, right? Is there land underneath all the water, like underneath all the oceans and seas? I mean, I know there’s the sea floor but are there parts of the earth where there isn’t?”

9. “What is the point of buying flowers for your home when they all die after a day or two anyway? Why would you buy death?”

10. “I want to get a dog but according to the airline I spoke to, they have a summer embargo on May 15 to September 15 and a winter embargo on November 15 until March 15. So basically I can only fly the dog like once a year.”

11. “I don’t have shoes that match my new Elie Saab oatmeal gray coat.”

12. “Next year I want to wear real jooooowwwrrrrry not cubic zirconia. I like how jewelry is pronounced more than how it’s spelled, like, jooooowwwrrrrry. Do you want some joooowwwwrrrry? Yes, please, I want lots of joooowwwwrrryyy.”

13. “I think it’s less degrading to shop at Century 21 as long as you spend a lot of money. I like Century 21. They have lots of cute stuff!”

14. “I just made my first return at a store ever. When I got home, the color looked soo different on me than when I tried it at the store.”

15. “When you go to a designer store and see staff wearing things that are being sold on the racks, you shouldn’t buy those things unless you want to look like staff. I’m only saying this because I bought something from a store a couple of weeks ago and when I went back again to browse for new things, lo and behold one of the guys who work there wore the same top as me. I’m so glad I was the only living entity in the store… can you imagine the face, my face, if another customer came up and asked for my help? I’d die! I don’t have retail experience, ever!”

16. *in baby voice* “Will you please take a photo of me doing my laundry for my instagram? I need to make my instagram look like I’m grounded, approachable and I’m doing “real people” work. Thank you! All these bitches on instragam are all smiley and happy and they all go to fabulous places but you never see anyone cooking or taking a poo or sweating.”

17. “I hate people!”

Argyle Situation

02/01/2013, Current Affairs, Marni, Pringle, Sonia Rykiel

With the exception of that freak snow dump incident in November, I’m having a pretty mild winter. I found this cute argyle sweater by Pringle of Scotland (in collaboration with Central Saint Martin students) the other day. Thought it matched the burger stand a couple of blocks from my apartment.
