Am I the only one who is totally over summer? To beat the heat, I’m planning my outfits for cooler temperature. I’m all about bold sweaters this autumn and I can’t wait to rock this piece by KARL (as in Karl Lagerfeld’s line at Net-a-Porter). I love the all-over geometric pattern and of course, the cut-out detail on the back.

Ever wonder what goes into making a handbag? Mulberry just released this video that details the birth of their new Del Rey (yes — inspired by Lana) bag.

This video is a must-see. In 2000, the BBC profiled my beloved Anna Wintour. Very ‘September Issue’-esque, if you ask me. There’s a lot of similarities on the way they edited the documentary. Keep an eye out for the John Galliano cameo. TONNE GOODMAN LOOKED LIKE TILDA SWINTON NOW and Plum Sykes (“The clothes that people wear here during the day are the clothes that most people would wear on their most glamorous night of the year! Who else would wear a Dolce & Gabbana chiffon skirt like THIS to the office? Only me or only someone who works in Vogue, you know!“), god I love her, was hysterical! I also love how Anna wore a lot of trousers (vs her now-trademarked printed shift dresses) back in the day. Fashion and styles have changed dramatically over the years but her passion and dedication to her work and the fashion industry remains the same. She’s a visionary woman.
How are you prepping for fall? I bought this tweed outfit (top and trousers) from J Crew sometime last week and I thought it would be cool to elevate the look with this ultra chic and ultra luxe crocodile Oscar de la Renta small dex bag. Ditto with the floral appliques of the new shoe from Prada. Little touches of lady-like goodness certainly won’t hurt a boy from time to time.

This has got to be my favourite haul video of all time, featuring my beloved Eva Chen who is the super chic Beauty Director of Teen Vogue. Thank you for showing the young ‘uns how to do it right. LOL!!!
I cannot seem to take my mind off this super chic wool and cashmere sweater from Bottega Veneta. Love it, want it, need it, must have it now.

How can one not fall in love with this gorgeous Givenchy Antigona bag? The emerald green colour is so rich, rich, rich, luxe, luxe, luxe! I think I found my bag of the season. Now if only I could get my sweaty hands on it asap, I’d be a very happy camper.

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.
