Guys, don’t forget to pick up the September issue of Glamour magazine. Victoria Beckham is on the cover (and the guest Editor!!) of the latest issue. I also have a two-page love & relationship advice column there. Check it out and let me know what you think. I had fun answering these questions. Thank you so much Glamour! I hope to do more of these in the future.
No road trip in the wild, wild west is complete without paying a tribute to cowboy culture! We stopped by this shop called “Boot Barn” in Winnemucca, Nevada and bought a couple of real, authentic cowboy hats, toy guns and other ‘Western’ paraphernalia. I never really had the chance to play ‘Cowboys and Indians’ when I was a child so unleashing my inner cowboy in the middle of Podunk, Nowheresville was rather fun.

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…

I love JW Anderson.
I first heard of him a couple seasons ago when I went to Vogue Italia’s ‘Who’s On Next’ event for upcoming designers.
I’ve been a fan since then. If you ask who my favourite rising British designers are, I’d say he’s the first one on the list. I love his aesthetic and his oh-so-clever and playful mix of colour, fabric, texture, etc.
Although I’ve been extremely busy over the past few weeks decorating (what else is there to do in this horrible, sweltering weather?), I’m also planning my autumn/winter wardrobe. We’ve got about two months of summer left. I’m thinking of buying a couple of JW Anderson pieces so while browsing online for his wares, I saw THIS sweater from his A/W 2012 collection being sold at OKI-NI.
Note: the above sweater was NOT part of his Fall 2012 runway show (see men’s and women’s).
At first I was like, wait a sec, that sweater looks so familiar!
Then I was like, wait, I already have it!
That’s right. I went to Parisian vintage store Kiliwatch with my friend Rumi ages ago! I had second doubts buying the sweater (which is an old sweater from J. Crew) because it had a couple of moth holes in it but then Rumi told me I should just buy it nonetheless. It was 25 euros; I’ll only use it for blog photos and nowhere else.
My boyfriend took photos of me in Stockholm in the said sweater earlier this year and I posted it on my site on March 16, 2012.
I feel like I’m on drugs for seeing the same sweater but I’m sober as hell. I’m confused.
Can you see the similarities I’m seeing?
I think I need to rewatch that Marc Jacobs x Louis Vuitton documentary again on how to repurpose a vintage sweater.
I’m smacking my head cause it hurts…
Oh and BTW, please don’t do a ‘who wore it best’ competition because I’m not a model. KTHXBYE.
