Playa Manuel Antonio

28/12/2013, Costa Rica, Missoni, Spring Summer 2014

I have a love-hate relationship with the beach. I hate going to the beach because I’m very out of shape. I’m kind of flabby in the wrong, every wrong places. I really need to take exercise seriously, especially since Summer is just a few months away. On the other hand, I love going to beaches because it’s one of the very few places where one can fully unwind and be totally carefree (ie. you don’t have to bother about clothes, hair, make-up). Simple pleasures as they say.

We spent pretty much the entire afternoon within Playa Manuel Antonio. It’s a lovely area on the Pacific Ocean side of Costa Rica. Had a fabulous, fresh lunch at Marlin restaurant. The lobster and the whole fried fish was absolutely divine.

Missoni Turtleneck Sweater

08/12/2013, Current Affairs, Missoni, Paris, Zegna

I know I wear a lot of womenswear pieces but there are times when I wear full, head-to-toe menswear lewks. Case in point: this Missoni turtleneck sweater which I paired with an Ermenegildo Zegna trouser I picked up last year. I’m a big fan of a good Missoni knit — they’re usually cheerful and colourful, not to mention timeless.

Austerity

24/09/2013, Acne, Balenciaga, Current Affairs, J Crew, Missoni

I know, I know. I’m a bit late in the game. I initially had doubts buying these Balenciaga cut-out boots at Barney’s. They first released these boots (for women) centuries ago but when I saw them on the men’s section for the first time during New York Fashion Week, I knew I had to get them. It’s a no-brainer purchase.

Are you excited for fall? I am! I’ve decided to stock up on outerwear this season. I bought this Acne Studios coat (dubbed the “Era”) on my trip to Stockholm last month. I know I’m gonna get major mileage out of this piece. Outerwear (ie. jackets and coats) is the most crucial thing one needs in the upcoming cool months. If you are a keen observer of my personal style, you’ll know that I’m a coat person vs a jacket person. There’s something comforting about wearing a nice, big coat. I like how it envelopes you and sometimes, the simplest, frills-free coat can be the chicest thing in the world.

Oh, the Irony! Missoni Display at Adora Greenbelt 5

15/08/2009, Adora, Manila, Missoni

Oh, the Irony!

My friend and I walked past Adora store (are they making money?) at Greenbelt 5 yesterday afternoon and I stopped to take a photo of the Missoni window display at the entrance. Within seconds of me pushing the button on my phone, the doorman came up and said the usual ‘photos are not allowed, inside or outside the store’ nonsense, hence the blurry shot. Oh, the irony!

I feel so naughty.
