Reflective Sunglasses (Agyness Deyn and Jack McCollough)

Reflective Sunglasses

Speaking of hideous “Duty-Free Spectacular Specials”, please don’t tell me this is the new trend in eyewear: reflective sunglasses

I first spotted it on Ms. Laura “Agyness Deyn” Hollins last month…

and earlier last week, I saw them on Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough after that whole Kiefer Sutherland head-butting saga. Here’s a pap photo of him wearing a pair of Oakley (shock horror) sunglasses.

I am begging y’all do not, under any circumstances, bite into this
reflective glasses trend or else — marc my words — a baby unicorn
will die somewhere.

Natalia Vodianova's Moscow on CNN My City My Life

Natalia Vodianova’s Moscow on CNN

After that adorable feature on Carine Roitfeld, CNN features another character from the fashion world. This time it’s Russian model Natalia Vodianova. Although she’s not necessarily my favourite model, I think it’s great (baby steps y’all) that an enormous international news organization is showing interest with some of fashion’s key players. I’m just disappointed that they don’t have a dedicated fashion or style-oriented show. I remember speaking to a journalist friend about this a few months back and it seems that a lot of these networks still consider fashion as “fluff” when it reality, the fashion industry generates billions and billions of dollars of revenue and employ tens of, if not, millions of people around the world. Ah well. Enough rambling from me. Watch Natalia give a quick tour of one of my favourite cities in the world. Moscow. Russia silly, not Idaho.

Part 2 after the jump.

I have poor eyesight. I don’t wear glasses often because I’m near-sighted. It’s such a bitch to wear specs. After all these years, I still have only one pair of eyeglasses. I guess this is why I always fail every time I play ‘spot the cutie’ with people because I all I see are walking Monets; cute from afar but up close, well… whatevs. I also don’t like wearing contacts either because they are troublesome. The thought of putting foreign objects in my eyes is enough to send chills down my spine. Remember those crazy “tiger eye” contacts that were all the rage back in the 90s? Well, I had a traumatising experience with those so never again.

I recently went to the optical shop.

Why do you like riding hippos?

This video of a cheating couple fighting on the street has been making the rounds online. Apparently it’s popular in Ireland. I am laughing so hard I’m literally in tears. I feel sorry for the infant. Vicky Pollard is dat chu?

The $64 million question is: why do you like riding hippos? Why do you ride women that look like men? Answer me.

“I ride anything I get!”

HYSTERICAL!!!!

Hermes Crocodile Birkin 35cm Pelouse

Hermès Porosus Crocodile Birkin 35cm Pelouse

As someone who is obsessed with fashion, I (try to) understand why some pieces cost they way they do: exclusivity, fine attention to details, luxurious materials, impeccable tailoring, exquisite craftsmanship, so on and so forth.

Now. I love Hermès and all but I have never, ever, EVER seen anything as outrageous as THIS in my entire life. Ladies and gays, meet the US$97,000 (NINETY SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLAR) crocodile Hermès Birkin bag.

OK I lied. I think I saw a croc Birkin up for auction at Doyle New York a long, long time ago for much less than that but it has diamonds in it.

I know it’s crocodile and yes, I know it’s an Hermès Birkin, but come on.

Why do I find the price point outrageous other than the fact that it doesn’t even have precious stones in it?

I dunno, just think of what one could do with $97,000.

I, knowing that I probably would NEVER have the chance to know what it’s like to have 97 grand in this lifetime (ok… ninety seven cents, yes), would probably:

  • buy a gorgeous, well-endowed husband from the Baltics
  • adopt six kids of different nationality and colour
  • buy a pick up truck
  • buy a whopping 41 acres of land in the glorious, exotic American town of Houlton, Maine (where gay marriage is now allowed) for the bargain price of US$19,800
  • buy a horse named Lily
  • buy a dog named Fifi
  • buy a cat named Pipi
  • buy a naked houseboy named Kiki.

I betcha my brown ass I’d still have plenty of change left.

After a year, I’ll sell the whole lot (husband, kids, house and pets) on eBay and I’d prolly get triple or quadruple my investment.

Enough daydreaming. Ninety seven thousand dollars? You’ve got to be kidding me.

Just sayin’.
