Vogue Shoe Closet.
This shoe closet belongs to one of my favourite Vogue staffers. Can you guess who?
Oh and if you answered Julia Restoin-Roitfeld on last week’s poll, you got it right!
No cheating, mmkay? I want you to trust your instinct.
(When I say cheating, I meant no looking it up on internet sites for the answers…)
You can look it up I guess but only after you cast your vote.

MTV Made Josh the Fashion Journalist
Oh my god you guys why haven’t I seen THIS before? This is the story of my life!
OK maybe not because…
a) I don’t have man boobs.. and
b) I know Iceberg, how can you NOT know Iceberg, thank you very much.
In all seriousness though, it’s all too familiar. Pluck the little gay boy who tried so hard to fit in from obscurity and put him in the big city.
I tried to embed the videos on my blog but I’m getting an error message. Maybe it’s because they’re a couple of years old. In any case, click the photo above and you should be able to watch them on the MTV website.
Last thing — what’s with Karen Robinovitz giving pronunciation lessons when she pronounced Yves Saint Laurent as Yves SAINT (SAYNT) Laurent? That’s a small boo boo right there. Oops! :-) Curious about designer name pronunciations? Click HERE.
OK y’all, just watch it on the MTV website. I’m a complete sucker for shows like this. It’s hysterical! Kudos on Josh for actually going through all that. I wouldn’t know what to do
Swine Flu in the Philippines
Oh no. I just got up and when I went to the kitchen to get breakfast (1 bowl of lettuce… I’m on a diet), I overheard my mom talk about swine flu. She heard it on the radio. I immediately went online and it’s all true. H1N1 virus aka swine flu is now in the Philippines! This from the Associated Press via Boston Herald:
MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines on Thursday confirmed its first case of swine flu in a girl who had traveled to the U.S. and Canada.
Health Secretary Francisco Duque said the 10-year-old had developed cough, fever and soar throat a day after returning to Manila on Monday and tested positive for the virus Tuesday.
She was treated with the antiviral drug Tamiflu and her condition has improved, Duque told reporters. She remains confined in a Manila hospital, he said.
I don’t know about you but now, more than ever, I want that Richard Prince for Louis Vuitton mask.

Sorry to see you go…
After two weeks of painfully dealing (or should I say ‘negotiating’) with the worst customs in the whole world (they refuse to budge and insisted on charging an arm and a leg in duties and taxes… for a pair of shoes!!), the Lanvin sneakers I bought finally arrived.
But alas, they are the wrong size.
What a beautiful pair of sneakers… I saw the knock-off version at Zara a few weeks ago and it pales in comparison to the real deal. Now I’m gonna have to send them back and wait for another pair to be sent to me. I’m soo sad. I honestly feel like I’m parting away with a child!
It’s alright. At least it gives me time to find black grosgrain ribbon to use as shoelaces.
