Spotted at Naples airport.

He must have majored in Math. I mean you kind of have to, just to be able to match all these checks on checks on checks.

Oh sweet Italiaaa

I spent the last couple of weeks on the Almafi coast tanning and hoping to see Italian ragazzi eat my gelato. And while in Italy some ragazzi drive their Vespas waiting for the Sartorialist to come shoot them like it’s no biggie, others are rocking what I call the footballer-from-the-80’s look. As for instance:

No but really. Does anyone know which team he plays for?

Must be a footballer for sure.

Busy and Very Important

May 3, 2013 § Leave a comment

Screen Shot 2013-05-03 at 10.40.10 AMOnce this Danish guy told me that I have a natural talent for giving presentations. He was like, yeaaah, you just go out there and own it, being all smart and funny with your PPT slides.

I actually choose to ignore the fact that this was said at 2am outside some random bar, the guy was giving me the whole take-me-home look and back in those days I used to make pink Powerpoint slides with little hearts instead of bullet points.

I kind of prefer to think that I actually do have a natural talent for presenting.

Or that I’m smart and funny (despite the fact that I got this “smart and funny” thing once 4 years ago, and “you say so much shit” is basically all I hear these days).

Surprisingly, there are still some lost souls out there that do enjoy my words of wisdom. Well because all the stuff I say is so wise, doh’.

In case you haven’t checked Stiliukas yet, you should.  I was a busy and very important guest editor there for a week, sharing my thoughts on nail polish and other existential matters. Here it goes once again:

1. The Slutty Lesbian Virgin Suicides by Maje

375840

During the last 4 months I spent more time looking for a dress for my Master’s graduation party than actually writing my thesis (I genuinely hope my supervisor is not reading this, even though between you and me, he could benefit from checking one or two fashion blogs)

Anyways, I think I found THE dress. Maje calls it Columbe, which is apparently French for a dove, but I feel that slutty (20 centimeters above the knee) lesbian (rolled up sleeves) virgin suicides ‘(baby blue and all) is a little bit more appropriate for the look.

2. COS PERSPEX HEEL

0174870002_14_0

Frank Ocean once said: I believe that marriage isn’t between a man and a woman but between love & love.

Hence… Mr COS Perspex Heel Shoe, will you marry me?

3. CHANEL INTERNATIONAL

S159667_XLARGE

Have you guys checked the L’ÉTÉ PAPILLON DE CHANEL Makeup Collection for Summer 2013?

First, I thought this nail polish was called Belarus. Like blue glitter and all.

But apparently it’s Bel-Argus. My bad.

In my own defense, the last time I wore Chanel’s Peridot, I was mistaken for a Polish hooker. Belarus only seemed like a natural next step.

4. iPad vs iPad case

17O126-100_A_111_2Today I woke up thinking that I really need an Ipad. And only because I am dying for this Acne Onyx iPad case. Given that they both cost pretty much the same, most likely I would have to pick one of the two.

You reckon if I stuff the case with old Cosmopolitans, I can trick people into thinking there’s an actual iPad inside?

5. Vitaly Design

Group_-_Amici_Freunde_-_White_Ceramic_Rose_Gold_1024x1024

A couple of months ago I made friends with this Canadian guy in Thailand who was some sort of a jewelry designer.  Not sure you could technically call that ’making friends’ because I was working on my second bucket of rum/ diet coke in front of 7-eleven, his buddy was fixing my smudged make up and I can’t remember most of the conversation.

Nonetheless, I tracked down the guy’s website (I know, very CIA of me) and Vitaly Design actually makes pretty hip jewellery.

Their double rings are a bit too much of ‘a gangster that went to a private school’ for my taste, but then again some other stuff is very Love Aesthetics-ish. Kind of makes me want to swipe my credit card like there’s no tomorrow. Tomorrow, where I am an unemployed recent grad asking parents for money to afford a gin& diet tonic.

Note to myself, Canada is yet another market for potential husbands (along with Swedish snowboarders, French wine makers, Australian farmers and Russian Sugar daddies)

Home Alone with Ryan Gosling

Ok. So on a five level Likert scale, how strongly do you agree that it’s a little disturbing that I tricked my french boytoy into getting this T-shirt, JUST because Ryan Gosling has one. I mean the tee is not THAT great, but hey sometimes I completely imagine dating Ryan himself #goodvalueformoney

On the other hand, I am not sure what’s creepier, this or the fact that I actually know what T-shirts Ryan Gosling wears.

Oh well, as this Ted Talks chick  would say, the erotic mind is not always very politically correct.

I know I might come out as a massive pervert (wouldn’t be the first time, ey), but I really feel like marrying a dog. Like REALLY really.

Check out my future husband on this Tumblr.

COS S/S 2013 vs Tank Tops

March 6, 2013 § 1 Comment

redsocks0160248010_14_00141576008_14_0

Me crushing over COS as usual. Is it spring yet?

I sort of feel like I made the biggest mistake of my life by wearing one of those ridiculous hot hippie couture flower print baggy pants for 6 weeks straight in South East Asia. You know the ones all backpackers wear? Oh man, what was I thinking.

Can’t even show people photos of my travels now. These Hippie Backpacker Pants really made me look like I was giving away free hugs or worse… was one step away from getting dreadlocks.  Just sayin’. Veni, Vidi, Failed. Way too embarrassing.  Even more embarrassing than the time I deleted all contact details on my phone of this guy I was in love with not to drunk text him (to say the least), but then called some information hotline at 3 am to get the number back. 

BUT NOW I feel like I have to pay my dues to society and wear nothing but tailored COS pants and buttoned up shirts (got the baby blue one above already).

0160213001_14_0

In my defense, I did try to pull off a buttoned up shirt in the glam of Khao San Road (see here), but some guy told me that I looked like Harry Potter. Not that a guy wearing an Ed Hardy T-shirt was in a position to judge anyway, but I guess he had a point. I wasn’t exactly blending in.
0134553001_14_00160515001_14_00143439007_14_0

It’s also worth mentioning, that I still feel pretty heavily traumatized by the amount of guys in tank tops I had seen during my Asia travels. I’m talking, as in ‘having-nightmares’ traumatized.

Rule number one, boys do not wear tank tops. Rule number two, boys DO NOT wear tank tops even if it’s like plus +62C outside. No way, Jose. Unless you are Magic Mike starring in a soft porn movie. But that’s like borderline, my friend. Rule number three, boys shop at COS and wear cashmere sweaters with pleated shirts. Grrr.

But then again. Maybe it’s just me alone that is pathologically allergic to boys in tank tops. For instance, I came across this man-cookie, totalz eatable. Would be eatable even in a tutu. But would look so much better in a white tight T-shirt, no?

What do YOU think?

Ed Banger banged my brains out

February 28, 2013 § 3 Comments

Usually I am really not into giving any credit to frenchies. Baby Jesus knows they are full of themselves already. But sometimes even I go against my rules. So I do take my The Kooples wide-brimmed A/W 2012 hat to Ed Banger Records, a French electro music label run by Pedro WInter.

I have no idea how they do this, but they just can’t seem to get anything wrong. And these are 7 living proofs why:

1. Cassius – I Love U So

Houuuu. I love you so. But why I love you I never knowww.

Makes me want  to get a leather jacket, a gap between my teeth and a silver lipstick.

2. SebastiAn – Embody

Apparently, Daft Punk said SebastiAn delivered the best remix they ever had for “Human after all”. Geniusssss.

Plus, I’m pretty sure that adoption rates in Africa must have skyrocketed after this video got released. Should-get-nominated-for-some-humankind-saving-award-MUCH?

3. Kavinsky- Nightcall

Featured on the Original Soundtrack of “Drive”. Starring Ryan Gosling.

“I’m giving you a night call to tell you how I feel. I want to drive you through the night, down the hills”

Oh god. I think I’ve just died inside. Multiple times.

4. Justice – Dance

C-L-A-S-S-I-C-S.

5. Uffie- Difficult

Miss Voice of Justice’s The Party is having way too perfect hair day.

6. Breakbot- Baby I’m Yours feat. Irfane

Usually I am pretty modest when it comes colors. I’m talking, beige is as exotic as it gets when I think outside the black&white box. Sometimes navy blue and ash grey, but just for the loco days.

I know some peeps would argue with this given my pretty extreme nail polish choices, but still, I think I am the stage in my life where I can comfortably say that I hate colors (#hatersgonnahate).

But the video. I want my wedding day to look like this. So in love with the whole watercolor painting thing going on ( they say aquarelle in french, way more sexy).

7. Breakbot- One Out Of Two feat Irfane

Most of the times I don’t like french chicks. Because they all are tiny, dark and beautifully mysterious. Biatches.  Someone’s really  being a hater today.

BUT  after watching this video even I suddenly feel like having a girlfriend.

ALL OF THAT BEING SAID

It’s Ed Banger’s 10 years anniversary party in Paris in 3 days with, get this, ALL artists under the label performing.Which I am of course here for.

I think I am looking forward to this day way more than to the day my first kid will be born. Tell me about the need to grow up?

Also, tell me what to wear.

 

Where Am I?
