BUCK. It starts here!

Finally I could manage to get my painfully annoying headache under control to update this blog with some exciting event: the launch of a new men’s magazine in town – BUCK – for which I got to take some tiny little photos.

You must have been out of town for a while if you haven’t heard about it by now. Now that you have heard about it get yourself out to any Borders, Tesco, Asda or WH Smith to get a copy. I heard it’s out in New York, Tokyo and such too. But if you’re really out of town and can’t grab a hold of a copy then http://www.buckstyle.com should help.

The magazine is one fit buck, if that makes sense.

Nx,

*edit*

P.S: go to http://www.buckstyle.com for a whole lot more photos I took of the party! nx

you’re so preppy, and i like it…

Right, so October is not even coming to an end yet and it was snowing in London? That sounds so wrong I actually gasped when it happened in front of my very own naked eyes. For someone who actually got love for snow like me, I was happy to see those icy fluffy flake flying around. But Kylie isn’t wrong at all when she sings “happiness will never last, darkness comes and kick your ass”. 1:30 in the morning and I was waiting for the night bus for half an hour in the snow, freezing like a polar bear with no hair in the heart of the North Pole. It was not even funny.

Anyway, this blog is not about snowing in London, it’s about something else that… I’ll get to that in a minute.

I’m not going to deny the fact that I actually enjoy Gossip Girl very much. I know I’m a little too old to sit and watch a bunch of snobby kids in the Upper East Side fucking each other’s life. I, however, believe that I had stopped growing up 10 years ago, so. Nevermind.

But you can’t disagree that Gossip Girl is probably the most visually enjoyable tv show ever made. The kids are so cute (don’t even get me started on Blair and Jenny and Nate and Chuck).

And the fashion. Forget all the labels that the girls strut in (and on) which already got the world talking, the character of Chuck only is hugely responsible for bringing preppy back on the plate. Pastel colour shirts, classic cardigans, wool suit pants, silk scarves, ties and neck-kerchieves have never looked so cool on a young guy.

For the season of autumn-winter 08, Ralph Lauren is also reviving the classic American private school look, with chunky cardigans, club-logo pullovers and polos. Check out the latest issue of VMan for more details.

As tremendously inspired by Chuck, and as lame as I am, I have decided to try my hand on preppy, putting on myself a few clothes that I’ve hid away at the bottom of my wardrobe for quite a while, thinking preppy just won’t work on me at all. But doesn’t hurt to try, does it?

what happened to Henry Holland btw? 2 years ago when he first came out he was this gorgeous delicate white guy with a shy smile that melted hearts. look what the industry had done to him, now he’s this tired-looking old guy with bad hair and probably no time to even care about what he put on himself. Sad.

when designers cost less than hi-street…

Think shopping in London and you think Oxford st for hi-street, Bond st for designers?

Think again.

The real shopping heaven in London hides secretly in Shoreditch, under the cover of coolest boutiques, most fabulous vintage stores, and most importantly, secret designer sales.

So, how was your weekend?

Don’t ask about mine. I’m still a little over-whelmed to talk about mine really, all because of this apparently secret (which was not secretive at all) designer sale in Bricklane.

It was mid Saturday afternoon when me and my friend Shiraz decided to go to the Paul Smith sample sale, because Shiraz wanted to shop. I didn’t, because I was poor. But the Paul Smith sale turned out to be a disaster and totally destroyed our good mood. It was my friend Mai who went along that saved us, or more, showed us this heaven.

Shiraz ended up going home with the nicest evening satin dress which screamed Upper East Side evening party and the coolest bronzy sequin jacket which got “fabulous” written all over it. Check them out.

The girl went over the top. Any reason why I should be surprised?

I could have choked myself to death with cigarette smoke because of envy if I didn’t find some pretty cool stuff for myself too. will show them in the next post, but giving away a little preview here with my new favourite hoodie in the world which transformed me into the hottest lady in music at the mo – Lady Gaga.
