Ibiza Situation

18/07/2013, Cartier, Current Affairs, Marc Jacobs, Prada

Just when I thought my summer could not get any worse, the lord almighty, whoever or wherever it might be, answered by prayers and sent me to Ibiza. Si, si, si, hola, hola, hola Eivissa! The last time I went here was more than a decade ago. I’m not even gonna tell you when exactly because it will cement the notion that I’m a dinosaur. But yes, I’m THRILLED, I’m so happy to be back. I’ve decided that I’m gonna make an effort from now on to spend a week here at least during summer. Every year. Why haven’t I gone here before when I go to Europe all the fucking time? Ugh. Looking back, it’s fascinating how I’ve worked so hard over the past few years that I forgot to take real vacations. It’s great that I get to travel more than a pilot even if it’s mostly for work. If there’s anything I’ve learned in the past 24 hours that I’ve been here, it’s… well, it’s important to take a break from it all. Shake that booty bitches, it’s time to party.

From Laguardia to Dulles

27/12/2012, Current Affairs, Marc Jacobs, Prada

What was meant to be a 40-minute flight from NYC Laguardia to Washington Dulles airport turned into a seven hour nightmare — something about the weather, how they had to change planes, blah blah blah. I’m just happy I’m here in Washington DC. We left my apartment at around 2PM and it’s 10:38PM and I’ve just checked into my hotel room. I’m visiting to see my aunt who I haven’t seen in about two years and my cousins who I literally haven’t seen in almost two decades. It’s gonna be cray cray!

Christmas in the City

25/12/2012, Current Affairs, Marc Jacobs, New York City

You know how the old Christmas song goes… all I want for Christmas is YOU. For the past two years, I’ve celebrated Christmas day in Stockholm. This year, my beloved bf and I agreed that it’s his turn to come visit me in New York. Afterall, I’ve been living in the city for the almost half a year now and he still hasn’t seen my apartment beyond the realms of Skype. He arrived here yesterday afternoon — and I’m so happy he’s here! My Christmas Eve and Christmas day was amazing in every sense. OK, fine, all we need is a blanket of snow to make it perfect but you know what, nothing in this life is so I’m not gonna complain.

How did you spend your Christmas day? My boo and I hauled our carcasses out of my apartment and strolled around Central Park and around the Upper 70s and Park/Madison. I love this area of New York, so peaceful, quiet and the buildings are beautiful. Maybe this time next year or the year after, I’m gonna move into an apartment with a fireplace. We’ll see. I hope y’all are staying warm kiddies. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.

Beached Whale

24/06/2012, Current Affairs, Marc Jacobs, Travel

I’m not gonna lie. After six days on ANTM Island, I’ve finally managed to overcome my phobia of the being seen on the beach. No, I’m not scared of the water. I’m just not comfortable being half naked looking out of shape in front of people. Why do you think I dress like a Christmas tree and cover myself in a shitload of clothes and accessories? Duh. Anyway, I’ve had enough being anti-social by pretending I’m working on my laptop when in reality I really wanna join everyone on the sea. So screw it. I took my clothes off and wore my Marc by Marc Jacobs swimming trunks. Game on, bitches! It’s been years since I last enjoyed doing normal people things on the shore like you know, playing with sand, dog-paddling or just lying down on the beach to soak some sun. I love it. Love love love love love! I’m gonna take more beach holidays from now on.

The Sneaker You Need Right Now

05/04/2012, Fashion and Style, Marc Jacobs, Shoes

Sneaker wedges are nothing new. A few seasons ago, before the whole Isabel Marant madness exploded, I got a pair from See by Chloe in navy. I’ve been lusting over these Marc by Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges ever since I saw them on the runway last September. I love the three inch hidden heel inside (perfect for vertically-challenged people like myself) and of course, the changeable shoelaces. So cute! At $320, the price point is much friendlier than the distant Isabel Marant cousin. The sneaker comes in two multi-color versions, one with a white base and another in navy blue.

Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs Exhibition At The Louvre

08/03/2012, Art, Fashion and Style, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs

Last night was the avant-premiere of the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition at the Louvre’s Les Arts Decoratifs. It was well-attended and fun event. In spite of the very crowded venue, I had so much fun going through Marc’s work at Louis Vuitton. I even had goosebumps when I saw some of the displays, especially Louis Vuitton’s collaborations with notable artists such as Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse and Richard Prince — I can’t believe Marc has been at Vuitton for fifteen years. It felt as if it was only yesterday that I lusted over the silver Stephen Sprouse graffiti bag. I want to go back when it’s not super crowded to thoroughly enjoy the exhibit. But, given the number of Louis Vuitton-obsessed fans in the world out there, I highly doubt this glorious display of creativity will have a private moment of its own.

I’m on a time crunch (packing for Milan, working on a few deadlines) but allow me to share some images before and after the Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2012 fashion show earlier this week. It was so lovely seeing Marc once again — and he looks so handsome, as always!
