Paris High

My anticipation for the Paris Spring Summer '09 collection took over my brain and body quickly & completely after my stressful month at work like typhoon 9 Hagupit to Hong Kong (thank God! no work so I could rest for a day) which is a really really good thing. It felt like I was having heart burns when I saw Martin Margiela's and short breaths when I viewed Yohji Yamamoto. Numbness for Nina Ricci and then it was heart attack because of Balmain. Now I just have to wait for Balenciaga, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten and Lanvin to give me an overdose of morphine.

Here are my favorites from Balmain. Those crystal stiletto strapy shoes reminded me of Steve Madden's Banglez Gladiator Sandals first seen on Kate Moss feet. Here is the couture version made with crystals not studs. Seems like Decarnin is taking it from the streets. Last season's minnentonka fringe booties look alike now this. Just add the 5 inch heels and viola! Did I mention I love high high heels? So I'm totally high on Balmain right now.

What Raquel Allegra did with worn tshirts
was absolutely brilliant!
Who would say these gorgeous pieces would come
from LA County Jail rags?

The King & Marc Jacobs

The collection reminded me of King & I. Maybe Marc Jacobs stayed too long in Bali or Bangkok and took all the brocade fabric back home, no? But i like it, it's rich, electric and romantic. Here are my picks.

Back to School

If I was still in school, I would definitely look like this. I like Boy by Band of Outsiders' interpretation of preppy. Well it's not too late for me. I can still pull this off. What do you think?

Alexander Wang - Erin Wasson

I felt a bit sad when I learned about the break up err... but they had to move on. Erin's busy with her own clothing line for RVCA and her jewelry line too so maybe that's the reason why she didn't style his show (just speculating). But our dear Alexander did not fail us with his spring 09 collection. It was yummy and yes they are still best of friends. I'm just so green like hulk green with envy that our fabulous blogger Rumi was in NY to see his and her show. She was in our muse Erin Wasson's house too hangin out with all the coolness. Lucky girl!

Who is William Rast?

I was anxious to see how the clothes would look on the runway. After watching those shorties featuring Justin himself with Erin Wasson as his girlfriend "Birdie" to introduce this line, just couldn't wait. Justin Timberlake's collaboration with Trace Ayala for a new clothing line William Rast was fresh yet familiar it felt like a favorite worn shirt seeing all those clothes on every girl. With the hip downtown coolness and sexy tomboy appeal. I'm loving it!

Jimmy Choo Fantasy

I wasn't a Jimmy Choo fan until I laid eyes on these gladiators. They reminded me of the Balenciaga gladiators with a sexier heel. But with a price tag of HK$12,200 it's just not possible to own them, for now. Can't wait for sale season to start. I have high hopes that when Lane Crawford or On Pedder go on sale, they still have these pair in my size because according to the sales assistant , not a lot of women can wear this because of it's narrow opening. But when I tried them on it was just perfect for my feet.
