A New Platform, A New Beginning!



This post marks the end of this blog, I am sad to end it but this is also a new beginning for me. I had a very enlightening speech from a fellow blogger, Lady Melbourne in my class the other day and it was a great one.

Thus I have decided to change my domain to wordpress. Please do continue to visit my blog!!!

Should I Change?

What I am about to say might sound like a betrayal"

Just the other day, I had a very enlightening talk from two RMIT Journalism graduates whom graced themselves in my lecture. ONe of them is Lady Melbourne, a successful fashion blogger and also part of the Melbourne Street Fashion and Amelia, another fantastic journalist which I forgot where is she working now. I feel really bad for that but I seriously forgot. But she worked for many different publications before, from Fairfax to Mx. So she's great.


So what i was going to say is that after the talk, I am considering to change my blog from Blogspot to Wordpress. I am not sure yet but the decision is almost final. What Lady Melbourne or Phoebe said was that Wordpress
allows more than reasonable features for a free domain and it's quite fantastic. 

I am not sure yet but I will confirm as soon as possible. This blog will remain as it is at the moment but when my Wordpress starts, I will move over there.

I feel really bad now. I'm kind of betraying Blogger for Wordpress after a whole year of posting in Blogger. Well, all I have to say is "You have to move to greener pastures?"

Well, it's not final yet but I think it's like a 90% chance of me moving. What do you think? Though I am not sure there's anyone who would be replying to this.

Anyway check out these places:


Ciao!

Anna is on TV!

A quick one for today with Anna Wintour and Marc Jacobs starring in an interview with Jimmy Fallon in his show. It's quite hilarious and fresh to see Anna not being so serious and have some humor in her. Though no matter where she is, she still has the aura of her that intimidates people. 
She is the Devil Wears Prada - well, devil with the bob cut.

Marc is a fun to watch too. Enjoy, the interview on Fashion's Night Out and reliving some past experience of Anna and Marc. Love the commet by Marc, "But, unfortunately, or fortunately, one can't say no to Anna." That shows Anna's power in a way.

On another note, Anna kinda complained about Lady Gaga during her performance for Met Ball.

Enjoy!
CIAO!

Fashion Digest: Madonna A Virgin Again?; Proenza on Art?; Anna And Grace Dolls?

It seems like forever since I posted an update on fashion. Well, the last week hadn't been kind to me. As you might have read the previous post. It wasn't smooth sailing but I have to say, I did act like a drama queen. Oh well, we all have times like this. Plus, this semester's assignments are crazy! Maybe this is how you feel like in your final year (3rd). Well it's a first for me - like a virgin. Now speaking of a virgin, who better to represent than Queen Madonna.

Madonna A Virgin Again?
Well, we all know that she is everything but a virgin. But this time she just might be one. Well, I'm not sure whether she did it beforre but for fashion, I'm pretty sure that it is the first for her - excluding the Vogue MV because it's a MV?
Well, back to the topic, Madonna did a accidental directing for this season's Miu Miu commercial. When I say accidental, it is. It was like any good old day when Madonna stormed into the Miu Miu campaign shoot to invite photog Mert and Marcus for dinner.

When she was there, she just decided that she wants to direct the commercial for Miu Miu and then the crew said she won't be paid, in case she wants it. When agreed on the non-payment deal (She's Madonna and she's rich!), she whipped her iPod out and directed. Typical queen. She gets what she want when she wants it. 
I think she did quite a good job. Well, must say it is a typical Madonna-esque music video.

Proenza Schouler on Art?
The much anticipated skinny by Jack and Lazaro for J Brand finally hits the stores - online. The pieces were grafitti'ed to perfection sold for $550 per piece.

You might think they're nuts to sell them for that price. But check this out, the jeans are individually hand painted.
Whoever buys these jeans would have a special disclaimer, "wash carefully only by hands and never iron!". You wouldn't want to machine wash $550 away.
So this might be considered as art but it's still just jeans or is it? Would you buy an over $500 jeans to wear or hang it in your wall as art?

I say they make fine pieces for your lounge.

Anna and Grace Dolls
Tired of the Bratz and Barbies? Well, here's an alternate doll for fashionistas in New York. Barneys recently commissioned artist, Andrew Yang to create these one of a kind couture dolls of Vogue editors - Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington.

These dolls are all hand sewn and painted to perfection. Couture dolls. Even they're hair were made exclusively to fit. Andrew had to special order a wig for Anna and personally cut the bob out and Grace's hair were actually permed and not factory made. Truly exquisite but I think there's two more missing. Andre Leon Talley and Toone Goodman. They would make a fine group of dolls.

These dolls will be auctioned off on Aug 31st on Charity Buzz for the New York City Aids Fund.
