Resurrection. As you can tell from my other social media outlets, namely Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, I’m still alive and I’ve been everywhere!
I know I took a (rather) long hiatus from the blog for various reasons beyond my control. Endless back-to-back trips happened — Costa Rica, San Francisco, Dubai, Florence, a quick jaunt to Madrid, followed by the usual Fashion Month festivities in New York, Milan, Paris, my week-long holiday in Rome followed by a pit stop in Stockholm and lastly, Madrid. In between New York and Madrid, before the European Collections started, my laptop crashed, effectively disconnecting me from the wired world of the interwebs.
Anyhoo, I’m finally back home, in my apartment, armed with a new laptop. I can’t wait to share to you all my adventures.

Have you seen the new Gucci fall winter 2014 menswear collection? Watch the full-length fashion show below. I’m living for the skinny trousers, the boxy, jewel-neck sweaters (my favourite is the dark teal shearling number on look #4), the ultra lux caramel brown leather jacket with a fur collar (look 20) and of course, the textured beige coat (look #11). I also love the idea of using a really light gray turtleneck as the base layering piece. Clean, chic and polished.
I know, I know. The entire solar system and the universe (myself included) castigated Kim Kardashian for wearing that infamous Givenchy roses sofa lewk to last year’s Costume Institute Gala yet here I am, drawn to the same, well, ok, similar, floral situation. I’m currently bored of all my clothes and I need a few exciting things. Now that new merchandise are slowly trickling in at the stores, a mini Givenchy shopping spree at Luisa Via Roma is well-deserved and overdue. I can’t wait to take these items apart and wear them individually. I may have to take the shorts to a tailor when I go back home — crucial to take an inch or two off.

Behold yet another major sweatshirt (Resort 2014) from one of my favourite British designers, Christopher Kane. Picked up this piece from Luisa Via Roma yesterday. There’s something romantic yet perverted about it. Obsessed with the lace-style, sheer, embroidered cobweb white floral on the front. Perfect for a little bit of nip exposure from time to time…
