Monday blues

6 Jan

Apparently, today, January 6 is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year. I can’t really blame some people for saying, being that the US is going through a polar vortex – right after the holidays. Being that I’m now in Miami, the worst I’m getting are scattered thunderstorms. Yeah, be jealous, be very jealous.

Looking through past posts though, I realize that I used to reserve Mondays for my favorite things! So, let me take some of those Monday blues away by waxing poetic about Christopher Kane’s Resort ’14 collection, specifically this skirt. I like that designers are being inspired by 3D digital imaging because that is certainly one way to stay relevant.

Spring dreaming

12 Apr

After 3 days of business simulation or 20++ hours of screen time, I made grand plans of going out for a walk on a Friday night – walk, as in to the nearest bar/comfort food restaurant/dessert bar and I’m assailed by this image:

My resolve vanishes and another night of procrastinating on other “stuff” looms. So, instead I go for women’s porn, which is Net-a-porter – online purveyor of all things luxury. By the way, I’ve used the site since 2007 when it was still Net-a-porter.net out of London. The company was eventually bought out for a $531 valuation in 2010. I should make money out of predicting some of these things then I can just stay in bed and watch the gloomy weather from my window.

Bon alors, enough of that.  What I really want to comment on are sandals and how wearable the styles are; there’s not one style that really stands out even though they share the return of a theme: gladiator. But the accents range from metallics to tassels and thanks to operations efficiencies, companies like Zara can quickly offer those same styles for a much lower price. Drool, if you must.

 

 

How do you Croon?

19 Feb

In the midst of writing two marketing papers, preparing 3 presentations, studying finance and operations for 2 midterms, reading marketing for another midterm – all in the course of 2 weeks – I dream of these:

I found them via Flipboard a month ago and have been checking them out about once a week. They’re available direct from Croon in Bangkok or from UK Brown’s. It totally makes sense that I like something from Thailand since I already love their national sport, Muay Thai and their food.

I predict that this brand will make it big; piggybacking on the menswear inspired oxfords trend. Now, how to get my hands on a pair of these puppies?
