Bb Ur' Not Lost

SUMMER Sandals (NOT FLIP_FLOP) to look out!

Kris Van Assche Gladiator : Yay & Yay

Dries Van Noten Slip-On: Yay plus Nay

Louis Vuitton Flap: Yay & Yay

Jil Sander Strap: Yay----Lanvin Rope: Nay

It's rather disgusting to call them the "cleavage" for men. But they do work as the cleavage of women. The Runway flip-flops are finally flopped away, to where it belongs, the beach and the the bath. For those who have paid $100 and sth for a pair of designer robber flip-flops, it's really money down the drain. Designers are now paying their dues with all these beautiful and not necessary comfortable sandals. One thing to remember is that not everyone has the feet to wear sandal. So please don't ruin sandals like they did for flip-flops.

R.I.P Lanvin's most sought after S/s 2009 Satin-Gladdiator Sandal: has a pretty good collection of designer sandals at discount :)

Dior Homme's 2010 F/W BIG FAT BUMMER

Are you bored? Well, I am....

Have you seen Dior Homme lately? It seems to be no where to find!I'm just about to get aroused by the S/s collection and a big fat bummer came right above. Kris has been on and off the balance ever since he took over the scissors. DH pieces used to be so easy to recognize with its sleek silhouette and creative design, even for some previous seasons by Kris. The 2010 F/w can be anything but DH. You can't even tell whether it is Kris Van Assche or DH. A creative designer needs to be creative. It is just wrong to borrow ideas here and there from past collections of Kris Van Assche. I've had it enough for Kris... Can we please have someone new?!

Balenciaga Men's 2010 F/W Preview

I am pretty slow in updating my blog. I guess it's because I have so many other hobbies that I enjoy. Especially since new year, I just have so many resolutions on my to-do lists. So far, I've been really busy but not accomplished any of them. I've read so many things and seen so many pictures for the Paris Fashion Week. I just don't see any point to update any news or photos since all other professional fellow bloggers have been so efficient. BUT! I do feel so obligated to update photos for my beloved Nicolas Ghesquière and his B...b..bbbbbalenciaga.

There are two themes that never die in fashion: Military and Futurism. Those are the two most powerful and durable weapons for designers to terminate my wallet strings. I always go sickly happy and broke when they combine. I feel lucky as well as sad that they seldom combine. For the coming 2010 Fall Winter (I know, we all live in fashion time), I have Burberry Prorsum to fulfill my Military desires and Balenciaga for my futuristic fantasies. Oh~~~~ I'll be so sickly happy.
Excessive colors and dizzy prints are lame for futurism
No one does it better than Nicolas with his sharp construction and minimal efforts. The pieces are quiet in colors and textures but very loud in presentations. It sometimes only takes a stitch to make it future! GO B..BB GO!

Bottega Veneta Nero Intrecciato SUEDE Dodger

BV's Exceptionally Comfortable "Dodger" Shoe

If you know who Tomas Maier is, then you know too much about fashion. If you only know who Marc Jacobs is, then you know too little about fashion. Fashion is pretentious. It enjoys ridiculing those with "no sense". But can anyone really tell what "sense" should we have to be in fashion? We see jumpy creepy designers all the time. If that's fashion, I'd rather be a person with no sense at all. I could never say that I understand fashion and I'm getting more confused day by day. I don't usually know the creative designers for some big houses and I'm still having problem pronouncing Ann Demeuleemester. I just learned the name of that average guy for Bottege Veneta's show is Tomas Maier. I know it when I see something I really like and I think that's quite enough for playing with fashion. This is my first purchase with Bottega Veneta even though I've know the name for quite a while. I like their clothes though they are never my size. I like their accessories though most of them are too "sophisticated or grown-up" for me. But when I first noticed this sneaker, I knew this one's for me! I enjoy visiting their stores just to touch and be touched by their exquisite crafts. Fashion can be really complicated with so called "trends" and sometime "bigger than life" price tags. It can also be as simple as:

Lanvin S/s 2010: Bring Sexy Back

We've known Lanvin for its chic elegance probably for too long. I'm glad that Albert Elbaz is bringing us some new interpretations of Lanvin, little by little, and surprise by surprise. I'm no expert in addressing critiques, but Playful-Boyish-Sexy is my humble complimentary for Lanvin S/S 2010. For me, Lanvin stands for the best silky materials and precision tailoring. I'm usually too small to fit into a Lanvin piece but I know for sure that it'll make "every man a man". The highlights are all those playful accessories that'll boy-ish a man (deal with it, my English is like this), which I think is the ultimate level a man could be. You gotta know how to balance between being a boy and a man at the same time. Leaning too much into either direction will make you either a geek(??) or a jerk. Balance... it's all about balance ^^ For now, I'm letting my boy-side out and disturb: I'm definitely getting the necklace, and maybe the tie with the tie bar, or the animal pin, and the sunglasses... ... also a new Lanvin sneaker!

For those who have accidentally followed my blog or ever glanced my blog, I feel terrible for not blogging during the past few weeks
Can't you believe that Blogger, Youtube, and Facebook are all blocked-access in China? While being lazy for the past few weeks, I've wondering the true meaning of me blogging. I am definitely not doing this for killing spare time because I literally have none, nor that I've ever even wished of becoming famous with my crappy words and okay-photograph. I'm just trying to do the one thing that I actually have interests in. I guess on some level, it's similar to why Julie from does blog, or maybe not. BTW, it is a good movie, only a little bit too long ~~Zzzz
