Over lunch, I asked my bf a question I’ve been itching to ask — where’s the rain? For this time of the year, the weather’s been strange — cool but sunny, dry and nice, as evident on my photos last week. We’re supposed to be in the middle of autumn as the leaves are starting to fall but where are the cloudy, gray skies?
Sunglasses, gray wool trousers and emerald lurex turtleneck from Prada, coat from Dolce & Gabbana, navy blue cashmere v-neck from Uniqlo, bag from Mark Cross, suede shoes from Church’s, scarf from Herr Judit.
As you know, I can’t stand the rain. I can’t. Rain is my biggest nightmare. It ruins my hair, my clothes, my shoes and my mood. When it’s rainy outside, all I want to do is to curl up on the sofa with my laptop and a warm pot of tea. Why bother going out?
And then it happened. An hour after my boyfriend’s lunch break (when he took these photos), rain started to fall.
There I was, drenched with rain water in the streets of Stockholm running errands with my shopping bags. The umbrella I bought at a corner store gave up on me within an hour because of the wind. My outfit, and my shoes, were downright ruined. I felt a pang of jealousy whenever I saw people who wore their waterproof, hooded jackets. Why oh why don’t I own one of them fugly but practical jackets? Why oh why oh why did I choose to wear Prada and Dolce & Gabbana over North Face?
Call me a fool but I know I’m not, I’m gonna stand out here on the mountain top till I feel your rain… feel it on my finger tips, hear it on my window pane, your love’s coming down like rain… wash away my sorrow, take away my pain. Your love’s coming down like rain.

Some cute pics from last night’s dinner with Dolce & Gabbana. I live for Stefano, Anna, Giovanna and the legendary Pat, who shared lots of inspirational stories throughout the night.
Here’s the view from my seat at the Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 2012 fashion show. Extreme bling!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the spring/summer 2012 Dolce & Gabbana show. Definitely one of the strongest collections in Milan. Stefano and Domenico are in full form! I’m on my way to Missoni now but let me share you three looks from the show. Will post more photos later, as always.
I’m trying to decide whether or not I should shave my stubble. I haven’t shaved my face in a little over a week. Both DSquared2 and Giorgio Armani are dressing me up for their shows tomorrow and both my outfits are on the far extremes of the menswear spectrum. Do I need stubble to complete my looks tomorrow? Maybe. But then again I’m having dinner later tonight with major fashion superheroes and I want to look at my best… and my best requires me to shave my face.
I can’t decide ugh! Dolce & Gabbana show coming up in a little under two hours.

After years of tough and edgy looks inspired by the Emmanuelle Alts and Kate Lanphears (who, btw, I love) of the world, maybe it’s time for young women to dress like ladies once again? Why do most of the cool kids dress as if they’re going into battle? Today’s armor consists of menswear-inspired pieces, tough, protective jackets, heavy, clunky shoes and strong satchels. Don’t you think it’s nice and refreshing to see girls embrace their feminine side? I caught up with my friend Stephanie after the Oscar de la Renta show last night. She looked terrific in her Dolce & Gabbana dress and Miu Miu shoes.
Watch Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana talk to the ever so keen, ever so intelligent Imran Amed about fashion, their fans and their digital strategies. Though bouth of them believe in the power of the digital medium, Domenico is the complete opposite of Stefano when it comes to the use of technology. He doesn’t use Facebook and Twitter. I love when he said he prefers real life more and in a way, it’s inspiring. It’s important to always separate both real and online lives. It’s easy to get trapped online and this whole social media madness due to the addictive nature of the internet. I for one try to the best that I can to live my life normally and have a life OUTSIDE the internet.. and then share it online. I don’t make the online world my real world, you know? Life is beautiful.
As some of you guys know, Dolce & Gabbana will discontinue their much-beloved, youthful D&G diffusion line. Spring/summer 2012 is their last collection. I’m very sad of this development because D&G played a big role in my young years. From cowboy chic to garden party, D&G is a fun, colourful line that allowed Stefano and Domenico to experiment and take risks by taking on strong themes season after season.
I took a photo of these shoes backstage at the D&G spring/summer 2012 show. I love the shape, the colours and the variety of prints. I want one in every shade/print possible! They look super comfy, too. I hope they hit the stores!
