I was absolutely wrong and I hope your valuable time was not severely inconvenienced. Continue reading
dress: Geld Iaz, 2011
Yohji Yamamoto once said, "the fabric knows what it wants to be." and personally i find he’s totally right– when you force a cut on a fabric it wasn’t meant to sustain, this is how you end up with bad designs and so much awful fashion. anyways, i recently found a nice sorta geometric-patterned fabric which wants really badly to be nothing but a box. since it was a completely new contour for me, i decided to try it on a simple neutral first— and this is the end result. so now that i’ve mastered this great structure, i had to go digging through everything trying to find all the poor forsaken cloth that also wants to be a box too someday.
yeh, Nouvelle Vagues’s "Manner of Speaking" happened to be playing in the background right at that moment, so this is my four-second rendition of controversial Oscar nominee Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan. or something.
shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti, 2007 | (ripped) t-shirt: A/X Armani Exchange, 2008 | leggings: Joyce Leslie, 2003
even though the temperature supposedly hit 55˚ this day, i got trapped inside because i had to stay fairly close to the Skype all afternoon. sigh.
yes i wore these beauuutiful Zanottis just to do the laundry— like a good little style blogger. bitches.

early drinks at the Bowery Hotel. the big topic of discussion was John Galliano getting fired from Dior. imagine throwing your whole life away over one utterly stupid remark? what a shame. what a waste.
pullover: Ilaria Nistri, 2010 | pants: Geld Iaz, 1998 | boots: Fendi, 2010
even though the sky was bright and sunny, the weather forecast said 80% chance of rain by sunset. so everything i wore this day was 100% waterproof, it all looks sorta leathery but really it’s all rubber. and wouldn’t you know it didn’t rain a drop the entire day or night.
brunch at my second faaavorite restaurant in all of NYC, Centro Vinoteca.

late lunch / early drinks at my faaavorite restaurant in all of NYC, Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano on Greenwich Ave.
