The Sartorialist’s book signing in Seoul

November 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

You know how people ask: If you could meet one person, who would that be?

I assume some people would rather go for Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton or Confucius, but oh come on. Would you really take any of them home on Saturday night? I mean they ain’t really the Aussie-eye-candy-that-you-would-drunkenly-make-out-with-in-Thailand-while-sipping-your-bucket-of-rum type.

That being said, it was a no-brainer for me to spend my 2 weeks lunch money on a book just to get it signed by Scott Schuman, the man, The Sartorialist.

Garace Doré you are so going down.

Time for a little ego trip!

Me rocking my snake-skin loafers just before The Sartorialist book signing in Gangnam. I am a tad disappointed that it took me 5 days to find a nail polish that matches the dark green tone of my shoes and you can barely see it in the pic, but at least for a change my hair doesn’t look like a chick’s who has been running on the treadmill since she was dumped at the altar three weeks ago.

This needs no comments. Except that the chick in the video has my Fjälräven backpack, so I dig her long time.

Not in a female-boner-for-Mumford-and-Sons way but rather close.

Ignorance is Bliss

You know how this Orwell dude said that “War is peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength”? Well they say it’s about the Cold War, but I am so not buying it.

I am pretty sure it’s in reference to shopping. Like me voluntarily choosing to ignore my credit card’s balance ( If you are my account manager at HSBC, please oh please disregard the latter statement ) and keep on buying shoes even though it means that I may  need to consider robbing a food bank. But think of it. Shoes obviously make you a more fabulous person, which is one heck of a strength. So Ignorance is Strength. And also a bliss. Makes perfect sense, right?

This time I scouted  two pairs of shoes at Myeong-dong in 15 minutes. SCORE emotionally, FAIL financially. The black ones are very much Acne Tassel Loafers (SS12) inspired, whereas the green ones are more what I call classy with a funky twist. Plus the shopping assistant kept on saying “soft cow, soft cow” and hissing as if he was an anaconda himself. How can a post-soviet girl say no to snake-skin.
