Lovely Leggings

Lovely Leggings

Bling bling and Vogue Russia aside, my chat with Michael Angel last week inspired me to take out my strikingly colourful leggings he gifted me last year.

During our chat, I voiced out that the leggings were rather a bit loose on me and then he told me that the pair I have is actually a prototype. Wow! I also found out that the leggings at the store are a little, just a wee bit smaller than the ones I have and size small would fit most body types because they are stretchable. You may also cut the bottom part of the leggings without a hitch if you don’t like the ‘scrunchie’ effect.

Michael has been generous enough to provide you my dear readers with a promo code for FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world for all orders over US$250 at his online store. Just enter the code MABB297509 upon check-out. I’m totally obsessed with his leggings and tanks, you have no idea. I’m thinking of buying another pair or two, I just need to get my finances in order.

Gilt Groupe Invitation

Gilt Groupe Invitation

Some of you have been emailing me whether or not I have an invite for the members-only discount shopping site Gilt (aka Gilt Groupe). I know I haven’t blogged about them on my site though I’ve posted a few tweets recently. I was holding off until I order something from them. Well, I bought a sweater and a scarf and they arrived safely. They ship fast!

The way Gilt works is that they post new items, which are sold at first come/first serve basis, at 12 noon (US Time) every weekday. Each designer sale lasts for 36 hours. Between you and me, I’ve seen a lot of major bargains over the past few months. I got a cashmere scarf for almost $50. Not bad of a deal eh?

Unfortunately, Gilt can only ship to United States addresses at this time. They do not ship overseas. It helps if you have a friend who is based in the US who will receive the package in your behalf then ship your order to you.

For a Good Cause

I had a lovely conversation earlier this afternoon with my friend Mrs. T, aka The Bag Hag. She’s auctioning off her Hermès Gris Tourterelle Victoria bag to raise funds for the benefit of Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila.

Bling it Up!

I'm sure you've seen the August 2009 issue of Vogue Russia with Dree Hemingway by now. IMO, it's Aliona's strongest cover of the year so far.

Dree Hemingway for Vogue Russia August 2009

Well, I was inspired to wear a little bit of bling bling (or should I say bing bing cause we're talking about cubic zirconia here not diamonds) myself. I don't think I'll be able to afford ginormous Graff rocks in this lifetime but lookie lookie at this cute treasure I picked up last week. It's huge! It's perfect for those days when you want to punch someone on the face to leave a long, lasting impression. Hah!

Loves it!

Swedes are scared of Adina Fohlin!!! Apoliva Apolivareklamen

Swedes are scared of Adina Fohlin!!!

Remember Adina Fohlin, the ferosha Swedish model with killer eyes from many, many years ago? I love her during the Tom Ford for Gucci era. To me she’s THE Gucci girl back then.

Adina Fohlin for Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche ad campaign

She has a new commercial in Sweden (Apoliva) for a company called Apoteket, a supermarket chain.

According to the Local, over 100,000 Swedes joined a facebook group called “Jag är rädd för tjejen i Apolivareklamen” or “I am scared of the girl in the Apoliva commercial” when the ad aired in Sweden.

Dang!

Are you scared of her?

Maybe it’s just me but I actually find her beautiful and enchanting.
