Love Angel Music Baby

23/05/2011, Current Affairs, New York City

Between you and me, I have to admit I’m not really a big fan of celebrity fashion lines. I was taken aback and did a double-take when I saw this amazing L.A.M.B by Gwen Stefani jumpsuit at Shopbop a few weeks ago. It was love at first sight. Me in L.A.M.B? Who knew! I’ve never seen anything quite like it on the market and it’s a great piece. Why stop buying it simply because of the label? This is what I love about fashion. There’s always something for everyone and it doesn’t matter where it’s from. What matters is how we can make a piece of garment our own.

DAY: Sunglasses from Karen Walker, backpack from Alexander Wang, shirt from Prada, cardigan from Uniqlo, jumpsuit from L.A.M.B by Gwen Stefani, shoes from See by Chloe

NIGHT: Sunglasses from Miu Miu, backpack from Alexander Wang, shirt from Banana Republic, jacket from Filippa K, jumpsuit from L.A.M.B by Gwen Stefani, shoes from See by Chloe

Click HERE to buy the jumpsuit or for more information. Shopbop ships anywhere in the world for free! Also, the jumpsuit I’m wearing is a size medium. L.A.M.B runs big it seems. I should’ve bought a size small.

Il Laboratorio Del Gelato

22/05/2011, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, New York City

I went to Bergdorf Goodman yesterday afternoon in time for Rapture. Just in case the world ended, I wanna make sure I’m in one of my favourite places in New York having a glass of rose and a few scoops of gelato. It’s hysterical, all this doomsday hocus pocus, no?

It never ceases to amaze me how people like Harold Camping preach nonsense and make money, all in the name of “God”. Don’t you feel sorry for his believers?

Saturday Brunch at Balthazar

22/05/2011, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, New York City

While most sane people spend their weekend mornings sleeping in, I like the idea of waking up early then heading down to Balthazar for brunch with a friend. What’s on the menu? Orange juice, coffee, omelette and a great conversation.

Fresh Off The Boat

20/05/2011, New York City

It’s always nice reuniting with friends I haven’t seen in many, many, many months. Fabian and I have been hanging out for the past few days to catch up for lost time and missed memories — pigged out, chased cabs, slipped dollar bills on strippers’ underwear during “Blatino Night”, etc. He arrived here in NYC from Germany a few days ago via the mammoth cruise ship Queen Mary 2. Over very late lunch/early dinner at Fred’s yesterday, he shared a lot of stories about trip — he had a his own jacuzzi in his suite!! I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise but never really had the opportunity or motivation to do so… perhaps it’s my fear of being the youngest person on board surrounded by geriatrics squandering away what’s left of their retirement fund. Who knows. The idea of being detached from shore life in a floating, man-made structure that looks like a miniature city in the middle of the ocean for a few days is, I must say, very appealing. I’m sure it’s fun.

Have you been on a cruise ship? I’m curious!

Super Shine Me

29/04/2011, Current Affairs, Dolce & Gabbana, New York City

Here are more photos of me in that fall/winter 2011 Dolce & Gabbana sequined number. As you already know, I can’t get enough of anything shiny. I love everything that sparkles. It’s time to shine!

Late Lunch at Bar Stuzzichini

28/04/2011, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, New York City

I’m not a big fan of spring weather because of the unexpected showers it brings. I ducked for cover at the nearby Bar Stuzzichini to prevent myself from getting wet. Late lunch ain’t a bad idea because I’m famished. Towards the end of my meal, my friend Alex (who’s having an exhibit at the Pratt Institute next week) called me and asked where I was. Lo and behold he was just around the corner from me because he went to a casting. Table for one is a bit sad so I told him to join me.

Bar Stuzzichini was good. Food’s great, service was swift. I was able to get a table without reservations. I love discovering restaurants (and have friends around the corner to join) unexpectedly.

The Ultimate Conference Room

28/04/2011, New York City

So many meetings, so little time. I had a very surreal meeting earlier this afternoon. I, along with several members of the team, are here in New York. The Los Angeles office is on the other side of the table, displayed life-sized, via video conference.

I have NEVER seen anything like this. EVER! Amazing what technology can do these days!

AAFA American Image Awards 2011

28/04/2011, Current Affairs, Dolce & Gabbana, Events, New York City

Yesterday evening, my friends from Elle Magazine invited me to join their table at the AAFA (American Apparel and Footwear Association) American Image Awards. I’m usually intimidated by black tie events simply because I don’t know what to wear but my beloved Dolce & Gabbana came to my rescue and I wore this AMAZING sparkly outfit from their fall/winter 2011 collection.

Breakfast of Champions

27/04/2011, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, New York City

Another day, another city in the life of a road warrior. After a quick jaunt to Shanghai, Boston and Los Angeles, I’m finally back in New York.

I still have a lot of blog entries to post from the above-mentioned cities but for now, let me enjoy my breakfast of ham gruyere omelette (and sausages on the side).
