Calling the attention of Kamiseta…
I went to the mall yesterday afternoon to send something via DHL. On my way back, I saw a cute little tee on the shop window at Kamiseta, a popular Filipino "high street" chain amongst third world teenage girls with clothes (and pricing) similar to my perennial favourite, Delia’s.
You want ostentation I’ll give you ostentation. Tasteful ostentation. Meet the ultimate cocktail ring. 30.43 cts, fancy yellow cushion-cut diamond rung from who else — The House of Graff — purveyors of the MOST FABULOUS JEWELS IN THE WORLD — LITERALLY!
I’ve been a big fan of Graff for the longest time now because a lot of their pieces are downright beautiful. A friend and I browsed some pieces online earlier. Nothing beats a good ol’ simple, beautiful rock set in the simplest possible way ever — afterall, it’s the rock that has to radiate! Anything with little diamonds or stones on the side or whatever is simply too gaudy.
Now this, on the other hand, is sheer beauty.
Ooooh the memories. The first time I set foot inside a Graff boutique was in London’s Bond Street was back in the dark ages. I’ll never forget having Dolce & Gabbana (yes, as in Dolce & Gabbana) within a spitting distance away from me.
Naturally I came out empty handed.
At least I got free champagne. LOL.
Wouldn’t it be soo funny if I scar someone’s face with that absolutely stunning & beautiful fuck-you finger 30.43ct yellow diamond adornment? Got a a couple of million DOLLARS lying around? If I have to ask, I can’t afford it. And clearly I don’t have the guts to ask my fairy godmother because it’s blatantly obvious that it would take wayyy more than selling my soul to satan for me to be able to "acquire it".

Remember kids — it’s free to dream!
Failing that, there’s always costume jewelry…. or NEW chinchilla cooats for for the less-fortunate such as myself. =) WE NEED FILTHY RICH ARABS! NOW!!!! OTHERWISE, BELGIAN DIAMOND THIEVES WILL DO JUST FINE.
Grand & Glamorous:
Christian Dior Ready to Wear/Pret-a-Porter Fall/Winter 2007-2008 FW 07-08
Stratospherically grand and outrageously glamorous, Big Daddy John Galliano definitely upped the prêt-a-porte ante with his latest collection for Christian Dior. When the pictures came in, I found myself ask the $64 million dollar question – IS THIS READY TO WEAR?
