Besides all the bad press, and her messed up life, I still love this woman. Why is that?

Yes, she has a gorgeous voice and her songs make me melt, but I think there is something addictive about her.

Oh, and I absolutely like her style--the hair, the ballet slippers, the braided belt, the skinnies and the dramatic eyeliner...I think there should be a term in the dictionary as a Amy Winehouse look.

Amy, please make another album.

death of the skinny jean

Just one word: stop!

thank you

I would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support.

I have been through a very rough time these past couple of months.

For some reason, after working in fashion you realize how much we do NOT appreciate life. Life is very nasty behind the actual scenes and it gives you a mindblowing picture of reality and cruelty of the fashion world.

In any regards, more updates will follow with focus on conceptuality.

Welcome back and thank you for reading--I highly appreciate even if someone came here and read the blog for a second or an hour.

Be good, but not so good.

work is a bitch!

Sorry for being so absent from here.
For now, a break.
Tomorrow is the future.

I'll be back soon, but had to share this image with everyone. This is what makes me excited about the fucking world of fashion--the eyes, the stare, the nastiness, the scared bird look...LOVE!!!!

If you tell me you don't like this new Prada ad with the ultimate Sasha, then just leave. Please. Thanks.

the right one!

This is the absolute perfect blazer for short guys like me.

the femme shirt

I guess this is the only acceptable way to pull off a girly looking top. Although, it still looks little femme.

need of the moment

This is so effortless chic for men. Agree?

Look at this ridiculous trend in Italy: braided bracelets around ankles on grown up men. Isn't this bad or what?

elegance is back

I think that Brad Pitt picked my mind lately. I've been toying with the idea of doing my hair in a parted way since the fall and now he gets all the credit. Hah.

Anyway, this is quite major. Let's leave that spiky, out-of-the-bed look and get more sophisticated. What's not to love here? Such a classy style with minimal effort that brings great sophistication. Buy combs!!!

runway or reality?

Raf's wonderful shorts are absolutely sticked in my mind. That exquisite draping, the particular slim name it, I just want one. But, then reality kicks in and you wonder is this for the runway only or can I wear it on the street? Can you push steretypes and be an original?

So, what is it? Runway or reality?

Another example of how New York is slowly becoming a giant suburb. JCPenney on 34 St.??? Not surprised.

neon spring

It's hard not to fall into this craze about 80's or neon. But, it's not like someone forced me into it. I suppose I just felt inspired. Perhaps, it was a good idea for a change. So, here it is: my neon scarf and an acid wash t-shirt.

mag advice

According to New York magazine, short shorts are considered underwear. I say no, and you say...?

saturation point

I love accessories, but when you have something shoved in your face for a long time, you get bored and annoyed because:

1. This scarf is everywhere.
2. This scarf is even worn by high school students.
3. This scarf has become a mechanical part of wannabe chic people.
4. This scarf is so unoriginal.
5. This scarf is still advertised in the latest Urban Outfitters catalog and is paired with a military jacket. The horror.
6. This scarf needs to be stored and be untouched for at least 3 years.

urban mixture: tims + skinny

I am not sure if I am delighted or puzzled to write about a new trend spreading among stylish guys in the city. It is quite simple since it derives from an existing silhouette, but little more updated and perhaps twisted. Gone is the indie/nerdy/rocker vibe and replaced with a tough,very don't-f-with-me attitude.

The observed concept is a combination of Timberland tan work boots and skinny jeans. Perhaps this is the next step guys look for in shoes where they switch from beated Converse or white sneakers to Tims. While it doesn't present a logical resolution to this so-called problem or rather a desired change, it is something we should be aware of. How far can we go when interpreting wardrobe elements from different lifestyles?

Can the ultimate staple of hip hop culture be mixed with an essential part of modern day fashionable guys? Skinny jeans and Tims? While people search for inspiration everywhere, it does not have to mean taking action upon anything that is around us. Finally, I am all about taking ricks when dressing, but I think this might be too much.

Originality does not have limits, but acceptability does.

daria rules...most absolutely, most definitely

Models come and go. As it is well known, many models last for 2 years and after that they have expired. Well, maybe...

However, Daria is such an exception. I will never get bored or annoyed from looking at her. This girl is phenomenal and I am more than glad to see her doing more ediotirals, as witnessed above. My dear friend, Darialogist, has a link to the May issue of Paris Vogue, where she has not one, but two editorials. Will there be more? Please!

the right way

This is how guys in their 20's should dress. Polished, but relaxed in a nerdy way. Love those light colored Vans and the khakis. Perfect! And, Simon Rich certainly pulls it off.

something bad

Stripes have taken such a big turn lately, that it seems every single store on Earth has some sort of a striped top. I think one of most unfortunate designs for a stripe to be incorporated is a henley. Henleys are usually solid colored tops, mostly in dark tones and add a little touch of chic with the added buttons. I'd never ever imagine a striped henley--it's just too much. Too much colors, too much fussy, too much busy... it just doesn't look right. It quite disturbing, if you ask me.

eternal white

Not my cup of tea, but Adam Brody looks absolutely stylish in this photo. It embodies a summer vibe and certain touch of airness with the white suit and white snakers. I've been seeing some photos of Adam around and it seems that this young actor takes an effort of dressing himself, even if it's too Californian for my taste. It's much better than seeing those other male actors running around with stains on their t-shirts and sweatpants. Don't you agree?
