I went to this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last night for the first time. I never thought I’d have fun in what seemed to be an over-stylized underwear show but I did. I really did. Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z and Maroon 5 performed. You know me — I don’t really keep track of celebrities or pop culture but I think I have a newfound crush with Adam Levine. Yeah, me and the rest of the world. Boo.

It’s such a shame that no one was allowed to bring cameras therefore I wasn’t able to capture special moments. Before the show, I had a chat with the fierce Kate Lanphear, exchanged kisses with the stunning Giovanna Battaglia. Carine Roitfeld also went there — with Alexander Wang. The odd fash people aside, I have never seen so many, errm, mature men in suits and tuxedos in the audience. Yep. A lot of bow ties.
Anyhoo, I had lots of fun. It was not your ordinary show.
For a blogger, photographic evidence carry a lot of weight. No photos, no care. Since we weren’t able to take photos at the show, Rumi and I took home these gold and silver star balloons from the show. The first thing that came to my mind when they fell from the Armory ceiling was…. oh my god, blog props!

I’m so glad we didn’t have a purchase limit at the Versace x H&M launch two nights ago. I bought so many things from the collection and I’m happy! I remember we were only allowed to buy six items from the Lanvin x H&M launch.
Some of the things I picked up from the pop-up store were: two short-sleeve men’s t-shirts, a long-sleeve men’s tropical print roundneck top, tropical print button-down shirt, women’s cropped bomber jacket, men’s varsity jacket, men’s studded shorts, women’s printed pant, men’s alligator printed pant, men’s black and white optical print pant, men’s optical print shirt, men’s pink shirt, men’s pink trouser, belt, a pair of men’s shoes and two necklaces.
I’m gonna try to wear them as much as I can before they hit the stores in a week’s time. I like the idea of wearing things not worn by everyone else. Once they hit the shelves, mama mia, it’s time for me to move on.
