It’s been quite some time since I last took these Alexander McQueen visors out for a spin. I’ve had it for a couple of months now. It never fails to draw so much attention — I’ve been stopped many, many times on the street from people asking me whether I could see through them (the answer is yes)! And then of course, talking to my friends always result in major hysterics. “You need to take them off when I’m talking to you. I can’t take you seriously!,” a friend quipped. The visors are obnoxious, yes, but it’s a great conversation piece. I love it.

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.

I’ve always had a soft spot for Oscar de la Renta. He’s the king of uptown glamour. It’s a completely different aesthetic compared to mine but you gotta pay respect when respect is due. In this day and age of androgynous, genderless dressing where boys wear high heels and girls wear boy’s outfits, it’s nice to have another option from the other side where everything is glossy, magical, luxurious and very old-world aspirational.
Here's the view from where I stood at the spring/summer 2011 Oscar de la Renta fashion show yesterday afternoon. It's my first time to go to an Oscar de la Renta show and I was late due to the crazy traffic. The show already started when I arrived at the show venue so I ended up in a nice spot — right beside the photographer's pit.
I thought it was a lovely collection. Perfect for his uptown customer. It was also nice to see Karolina Kurkova do the shows again. I saw her at Alexander Wang, too.
