WERQ Those Acne Wedge Boots
Rodartesque sweater aside, these 5.5 inch Acne wedge boots caught my eye yesterday night.
I just finished doing on a round of bloghopping (mind you, it’s Sunday night) and I saw these photos of Yuanyi Jeff Lee sporting them. Gurl you better werq!

Tommy Hilfiger + Keith Haring Collaboration
At the Luisa Via Roma Firenze4Ever event last weekend, Tommy Hilfiger gave away limited-edition sneakers featuring their collaboration with American graffiti artist/activist Keith Haring.
They also had someone who customized the sneakers by permanently engraving whatever you want. I had "Bryan" engraved on my pair.
At first I was rather hesitant in wearing them but trust me, they came very handy and useful because of my missing baggage issues.
Spinetastic Dsquared2 Shoes
That's the first thing I did when I saw these very special ankle booties from (hold on to your seat) Dsquared at Luisa Via Roma.
They also come in a bandage sandal version…
Are you getting chills running down your spine?
How amazing are they?
The heel is about 6-7 inches high and the boots were super comfortable.
Trust me, I tried.
Finsk Shoes by Julia Lundsten
When I went clubbing over the weekend, the guy who managed the door at Berns (aka 'the pointer' because he points at random people and decides who to let inside) seemed to be unfazed when I wore my glitter playsuit as I walked straight to the front of the queue. "Are those Finsk shoes?" he asked. "Yes," I replied.
Just like that, I was able to get into what I thought was the best club night in Stockholm. How he was able to see my black pony skin wedges in the dark remains a
mystery to me.
What I do know is that I fell in love with these babies the first time I saw them online. Even Women's Wear Daily recognized my obsession.
Ask yourself — when was the last time you had that pulsating
feeling? You know, that "oh my god, I really have to have it or else I
would die" feeling? I consider myself lucky and privileged to be able to see beautiful things as part of my job. However, it's been a long, very long time since my poor precious heart pounded so hard. That's how I felt when I saw those Finsk pony skin wedges. Finsk designer Julia Lundsten is my fave shoemaker.
If you don't see me eat at nice places this month, I only have these shoes to
blame!!! LOL. The price, I must admit, is a bit whack, but every single penny is worth it. They're incredibly well-made and super comfortable to walk in, in spite of the height. I recommend that you size up if you're thinking of buying a pair. It's a bit tight and narrow on the sole… they didn't have size 41 so I settled
for 40, which fits me just fine.
Now go! They come in black and gray.
Have you been to Topman lately? They have very cute graphic socks which I wore to break that matchy matchy look.
Trousers from Zara, shoes from Cole Haan.
Henry Holland + Charlotte Olympia Platform Wedges
Electrifying shoes. I want. I need! I love Henry Holland's collaboration with Charlotte Olympia.
As you know, Henry is here in Kuala Lumpur to show select pieces from his fall/winter 2010 collection at the MUSA store. When I went to his rehearsal, the first thing he asked me was, "what size are you?". My answer of course, is, model size, which is size 40 women's.
I tried this pair on and for a 6-7 inch high shoe, they're surprisingly very comfortable.
Can I borrow a pair during fashion week?
These Timberland Boots Are Made For Walking…
I’m packing my bags for my next destination…
… can you guess where?
Africa? South America? North America? Middle East? Asia? Europe?
I almost had a coronary when I saw this Proenza Schouler shoe featured on Virginia Smith’s “Last Look” on Vogue.
It breaks my heart I can’t wear (or BUY — $950!!!!!) such stunning piece.
Well done Proenza, well done.

Alexander McQueen's Python Armadillo Shoes Spring 2010
The lovely folks over at British Vogue graciously shared the latest arrival in their fashion cupboard: a pair of Alexander McQueen python shoes appropriately named "the Armadillo".
Call me crazy but I'd sell my soul just to be able to try them on. Even for one fleeting second.
OK, maybe an hour. Or a day.
