Alexander McQueen Underwear
I don’t think I’ll ever get over Alexander McQueen’s passing. It’s so bittersweet that my first Alexander McQueen show was also his last. With womenswear collections just around the corner, I’m very curious what his successor, Sarah Burton, will come up under his name.
Meanwhile, have you seen McQueen’s first underwear collection for men?
They are now
available for sale at Oki-Ni. Prices range from £40 – £55. A bit pricey for boxers and briefs but hey, they’re McQueen! I’m sure it doesn’t hurt to indulge from time to time…
God I love July. There are tons of sales going on… too many sales, so little money. That’s my story right there.
Anyway, I just bought an MM6 Maison Martin Margiela tank and Kris Van Assche shirt. For less than US$275.

Christian Louboutin Men’s Sneakers
Shoe lovers, get that mastercard at three paces.
I’m sure you’ve seen some hot boys sporting around Christian Louboutin’s famous studded black and white sneakers. But have you seen these gorgeous babies from his new men’s collection? Leopard! Metallic glitter! Crystal!
Leopard sneakers (£595), metallic sneakers (£440), crystal-studded sneakers (£1,535).
As much as I want to go for the leopard version, I must say I’m attracted to the crystal-studded one. Let’s be honest here… I love shimmery, shiny things!
Just keeping it real, y’all, just keeping it real.
If you live in the UK, they are now available at Harvey Nichols.
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!

BROdarte versus Acne
It’s Sunday 4:55AM and I’m window-shopping around teh interwebs. I saw this interesting knit sweater by Swedish brand Acne. At US$234, I thought the price point ain’t that bad.
Compare it to this Rodarte piece from last season. Or was it last, last season? Fashion moves so fast these days I have no sense of time whatsoever.
In spite of the massive online coverage received by BROdarte a few months back, why am I surprised Opening Ceremony is still selling that piece? Oh yes, the $2,800 price tag. DUH! Ooops, my bad.
Meanwhile, I’ve been told that Rodarte pieces, especially the knits, are hand-made. So…
Point to ponder.

Speaking of Prada, have you seen this cute backpack (US$620) on the Prada website? I need this! It should be available to order soon.
I also want the printed camouflage saffiano tote but it's US$2,550 + tax. Yikes!
Anyway, I think it's amazing that Prada finally opened their American online
Now go. Go and buy something. Let me live vicariously through you.

Miu Miu Store Florence, Italy
The Miu Miu store in Florence is located on the ground floor of the Hotel Savoy where I’m currently staying. Even though men’s Miu Miu was discontinued a long time ago, Miu Miu remains close to my heart because of all the beautiful, chic things that are available there.

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.
Lady Gaga T-Shirts – I'm A Free Bitch, Baby
I'm not surprised there's an opportunistic person out there in the UK capitalizing on Lady Gaga's fame by selling these Lady Gaga "I'm A Free Bitch, Baby" t-shirts for around US$19 each. They come in different colours: red and white, purple, black and neon green, black and gold, black and silver. It also comes in a tank top, too.

What do you think? I'm buying one just for kicks. You know, something to wear in private — at home, on the plane and at hotel rooms. *wink wink*
I want your love and I want your revenge…
