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."
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.
I don’t know about you but I’m one of those people who always go to the same ‘tried, tested and trusted’ restaurants every time I eat out. It’s not unusual for me to have gone to a place like 10 or more times. I know it’s not good and I’m trying to change that.
I’m sure y’all have seen the Chanel Resort 2010 collection in Venice. Here’s part 1 of the show.
It’s been a few weeks now and I still can’t get the soundtrack out of my head. It’s amazing! In fact, one of my readers in Estonia identified the song as “Something ala Mode” by Rondo Parisiano Ft Karl Lagerfeld.
I can’t for the life of god find an mp3 copy online… there has to be a way to rip tracks from Youtube videos, no? I *need* this song for my ipod.
Big, big, big special thanks to Justin, McKenneth and József who sent me a copy of the file. Woohoo! You guys can download the full soundtrack by clicking HERE.
