Mi Casa Su Casa

18/08/2012, Current Affairs, Hats, Jil Sander, Phillip Lim

Sincerest apologies for the silence as of late. I’m having one heck of a wild summer. It’s been a month since I moved in and my very modest and miniscule apartment is finally seeing some signs of life. I have clutter on my hallway, cigarette ashes outside my bedroom window and dead hydrangeas in my garbage can. I have orchids, dead pheasants, scorpions and a taxidermied fox. I’m also starting to get visitors! My beloved Rumi, who’s visiting from LA, is my living room’s first tenant. There’s something amusing about turning the air-conditioning to full blast indoors and wrapping oneself in a mink blanket while it’s scorching hot and humid outside. I still have a long way to go to turn my humble home decent and camera-ready, so give me some time before I post pictures online. Just like yourself, I look forward to having a cute apartment in the next few months to come. I want to finally be able to say ‘Mi Casa Su Casa’.

Decorating and interior woes aside, it’s nice to finally explore NYC as a resident instead of being a visitor. Rumi and I took the water taxi (her first ride) and explored Brooklyn the other day.

Worn To Death

10/08/2012, Alexander Wang, California, Current Affairs, Phillip Lim

Subtle textures. I’m obsessed with subtle textures. And holes. And perforations. I wore this ultra bright white fall/winter 2012 3.1 Phillip Lim textured men’s jacket with a white mesh tee from Uniqlo and my now-classic leather and suede perforated shorts from Alexander Wang which I bought a few months back from Opening Ceremony. It’s funny because I initially had reservations shelling out a couple of hundred dollars for a pair of leather shorts but I’ve worn these to DEATH this season. There are very few things in life that are worth every penny earned. This is one of those things.

Conquering A Fear

06/08/2012, Alexander Wang, Current Affairs, Phillip Lim

No, really, I’m a cowboy. I’m able to survive in harsh conditions and I’m also game for pretty much most things in life with the exception of the following: electrical outlets, roller coasters and anything that involves me dangling in the air. Don’t ask; the older I get, the more I fear heights. Rumi wanted to take the scenic lift ride at the Park City Mountain Resort in Utah. I failed in trying to steer her to do something else. I guess it’s fair that I join her especially with the drive from Salt lake City. Trust me, I was petrified beyond belief for the first fifteen minutes of the ride, frozen legs and all. It’s the first time I rode the lift and boy I’m glad I did! I’m very curious what Park City Mountain Resort looks like in the winter though…

White Stripes on the Side

27/06/2012, Current Affairs, Los Angeles, Phillip Lim

3.1 Phillip Lim is like an evil retail vortex. It’s one of the very few stores out there that I couldn’t leave empty-handed. I ended up buying a number of tops a week and a half ago but nothing beats my favourite piece of the moment –  these slouchy, silk trousers (click HERE) with a geometric, white panel on the sides. I love how you can change the shape of the trouser with the adjustable zippers.

Bottom Boy Seeks Yellow and White Top

19/03/2012, Fashion and Style, Phillip Lim, Spring Summer 2012

I’ve been monitoring online stores that carry 3.1 Phillip Lim (SSENSE and Shopbop) and I cannot seem to find this sheer white sleeveless top with yellow strip panels from his spring/summer 2012 collection. It’s one of my favourite pieces from his show (tried to photograph it from all directions while sitting on the front row) and I’m surprised it hasn’t arrived yet. I hope it’s not one of those ‘for-show’ pieces that they don’t end up producing.

I love it, I need it, I must have it. That yellow and white top needs to come into my life. Stat! I even went to the store in New York last month to look for it to no avail. I ended up buying a pair of mesh trousers and mesh boots instead.

New Babies On The Block

26/02/2012, Fashion and Style, Phillip Lim, Pierre Hardy, Prada, Shoes, Spring Summer 2012, Versace

A trip to Milan won’t be complete without paying Prada (aka handing out cash you’ve earned in between seasons) a visit. I picked up two of their stunning spring/summer 2012 shoes before Fashion Week began.
