It's That Time of The Year

Yes, it is that time of the year again. Time to be cheery and be possessed by the Christmas spirit. And I think this year I'm feeling a bit materialistic. Well maybe not. Maybe I just know what I want this year. I know that a chunk of the stuff on my list is attainable but I also know that I ain't getting some stuff from the list anyway so what the hell. It wouldn't hurt to put it out there, would it?

I want to move to a new place. I'm sick of staying here in this rathole. I still would like to live in the East though. Even if it takes me an hour to get to work.

I want to start running but I don't have an outfit for it. Even shoes. Well I can't go running in bondage boots, can I? And the Nike X Undercover collaboration's looking good.

I've been salivating over this Preen circa 2004 sweater since I saw it on Yahoo Japan. After more than a year, it's still there.

I'm liking this Dries Van Noten top.

I don't wear accessories but this Rick Owens bangle, I would wear it everday.
Gareth Pugh boots from a few seasons ago. I've been trying to look for a really nice pair of shoes but I can't find one. Balenciaga messenger bag. I need a bag. Even my colleague told me to stop using the rag disguised as a tote I use everyday.
Rodarte Knit Cardigan. Yes, this belongs in the realm of the impossible with the US $ 2000 price tag. But hey, maybe someone with shitloads of money might want to do a good deed and get this for me.
A bit of Rick Owens would also be nice.

Aside from the house, it looks like almost everything is from the fashion department. But a new/better job (in terms of job scope and pay) wouldn't hurt. I know that I've been living like a hippie for a while now but I also wouldn't mind a bit of a windfall. And also new stamps in my passport. I need to shut up now. Or else, this would never end.

My ______ Is Better Than Your ______

I don't know if I'm just getting bored of the stuff in my wardrobe. I end up wearing the same thing every time. And by that, I don't just mean I wear the same things over and over. Lately, I wear the same exact outfit on the same day of the week. I noticed that I do the faux leather vest-black v-neck-black coated jeans-strappy boots combo on Tuesdays, black cut-off t-shirt-cobweb knit striped cardigan-black jeans-rivet belt-boots combo on Wednesdays, cobweb knit green sweater-black singlet on Saturdays, and so on and so forth. You get my drift.

So maybe out of the boredom with what I have in my closet (or maybe just the boredom at my office desk this morning) I started clicking and clicking on photos of fashion-type people and then ended up looking at photos of Visionaire's Cecilia Dean.

She has this blog-type section on the V Magazine website which shows her outfit pick of the week. Aside from career-envy, this woman gives me closet-envy (having a sheer amount of nice clothes that you can bike to work at 7am in Givenchy)

If only I could wear Balenciagas, Margielas, Rodarte, vintage Helmut Lang to work every day.

The Beast and Dragon, Adored

Look, I've read the directions. I know the trends.
I know what's out there. So, screw it.

Let's take riding lessons...

to when Stella McCartney had the reigns on Chloe (Spring 2001 RTW).

Self-Service: "What's the most innovative thing that you've seen lately?"
Alexander Wang: "Nothing, really."
