Grosgrain Ribbon

Grosgrain Ribbon

I went to Carolina's earlier this afternoon to finally buy grosgrain ribbon for my Lanvin sneakers — I bought them in 8 colours! Here are some of the ones I got. The yellow is soo chic no? I also got them in apple green, cherry red, navy blue, etc.

My friend hesitated going to the shop. Tsk. For an awesome guy who concoct lines such as "all you need to get by in life is a smile, a laugh and a sparkle in your eyes… and your eyes are sparkling now", it's very funny to know he's capable of saying "going to a ribbon shop is like shopping for bras with your mother."

Over-excitable Fashionese

Portrait of a mother and her child

I found (one of my old entries) myself quoted in a hysterical article in the Daily Telegraph yesterday without proper attribution.

Then there’s the Japanese fashion journalist and consultant Yu Masui, who is so obsessed with the designer Balenciaga that he regularly purchases and wears items from the women-only collection – handbags included. Such audacious and spendthrift bravery has furnished Yu Masui with a heroic status among internet fashion groupies. “I’m totally jeliz,” comments one, in fluently over-excitable fashionese, under a picture of Yu Masui wearing a fetching (if slightly undersized) Balenciaga floral top. “He’s fierce and ferosh to the highest levels.” (“Ferosh”, in case you didn’t know, is the fashionese abbreviation for “ferocious”, ferocious being a good thing, in the same way that “fierce” is also compliment.)

In other news….

  • The Los Angeles Times published an article about fashion bloggers and me, Tavi and Rumi made the footnote.
  • Thank you Elle Germany for the lovely mention.
  • Tausend Dank Vogue Germany for the brief plug in your July 2009 issue.
