Valentino x GAP Is Pretty Tough
Fashion In Six Words Valentino and Gap get Pretty Tough. It’s all ruffles and bows when Valentino meets GAP. But of course, ruffles get a little rugged American with a tough edge when rendered from olive khaki. I can see how these will be perfect for spring. Tough and pretty never looked so good together. I love the skirt, but I always have an issue with skirts with a huge bow on...
Thank God It's Black Friday
First All Saint’s win…or lose. There is a reason I never walk into that store because you can’t help but hand over that plastic… I don’t even like heels…I consider them greatly uncomfortable and fashion should not be like waterboarding…but these have turned me against my own beliefs. UGH.

That’s the best revenge of all: happiness. Nothing drives people crazier than...– Chuck Palahniuk (via theessentialman)
In response to the recent artillery barrage North Korea unleashed on South Korea, killing four people total, including two civilians, Sarah Palin did it again and tripped over her own tongue (or is just plain lack of intelligence capacity?) by claiming the right course of action would be to “stand with our own North Korean allies”. After which she was promptly corrected by Glenn...
I'm In The Nook
So here is a quick rundown of my latest conquests, snowboarding goggles (I have been typing Googles for goggles ever since Google came around. Anyone with a suggestion to why that is?) courtesy of Drop; a bite-sized iPod Shuffle courtesy of Lacoste (thank god, my iPod Nano is officially dead). The back light is now just a back); and the WiFi nook by Barnes N’ Noble, courtesy of gwan. ...

Shipping container home designed by MEKA has changed my idiotically conservative notions about real estate. Anyone want to visit the little thing on Charles + Washington with me sometime? Starting at $39,900 only. Cheaper than an SUV.
Plug-In To The City
I feel like Berlin artist, Aram Bartholl, is onto something with his new project, the Dead Drops, which explores the relationship between people and their gadgets and the boundaries between the online and the offline world. So, he cemented USB drives into physical buildings and urge people to plug into the actual city— in the most literal sense. I see this being an amazing, amazing...

Tasty x Mzelle-Fraise - Marshmallow Bear
Chocolate coated marshmallow meets Gummy bears in a new delicious chocolate coating— perfect for those who hate gelatine. This year, a young designer, Mzelle-Fraise has created a new box for the chocolate marshmallow bears from Le Petit Ourson Guimauve. I’m in love.
Cream of the Crew
Marine inspiration or not, I’m happy that J. Crew didn’t just slap on a bunch of anchor embroidery, lift from the sailors and the tired nautical interpretations and called it a day. The collection is more so of a “reminiscence of the sea”, than “going out to the sea”. Feels like a retired seamen who is now residing happily in the city…though a fairly young...

“Meant to be seen” Cute, too bad this weather doesn’t really warrant that these will protect me from frostbites.
THE ESSENTIAL MAN: More On Happiness →
I can only wish that when I do win the lottery, I will be able to do the same. Perhaps “God is fair” is not so much a romanticized sentiment to console those who feel a little short when it comes to life, but a founded truth…things will be given to those who deserve it. I wish Violet and her husband happiness, though I’m sure they are already content and happier than the...

Would You Believe In Mango
There was a point of time in the late 90s, and the early turn of 21st century, when we had all celebrated by wearing incredibly tawdry logo t-shirts. And shall I shamefully say, in six words: Fashion In Six Words: When I was 16— MANGO logo. It’s bitter sweet. I wish I had a picture. Too bad I didn’t have a digital camera back then (no 16 year-old could afford it), and I had...
Bigger = Better
Don’t take offense, especially the boys, because I’m talking about boots here. Went to collect a pair of boots from Dr. Martens today, and for some reason, I have been “confunded” into taking the smaller pair because “you can break them in”. Why would you want a slightly ill-fitting pair and break them in instead of a roomy one? I don’t know. I’m...

New Dr. Martens In SoHo
I’ve been blogging about Dr. Martens for quite a while, and actually have been a big fan of them since I was about 14. Talk about being impractical, trying to wear combat boots in the steaming Singapore weather (they should have made perforated ones so I could have shown off my socks back then, only 14 year old girls can make colorful socks with little hearts on them work). But either way,...
