My Doc Martens collection: 14-hole, 10-hole, and two 8-hole. =)
I’ve been watching Fashion TV for almost an hour and they have featured Liu Wen a lot. I admit that I did not pay much attention to her before, even though I know of her existence. But her various backstage interview made me fall in love with her. She was very eager to express herself in the questions thrown at her and I was really impressed on how intelligible and sincere her answers were. What I noticed the most was the constant mention of her family. Being a child born from China’s one-child policy, her parents are very lucky to have this bomb for their one shot. She seemed to be really close to her parents and that is very admirable. <3
From now on, I will keep an eye on her (and sweet Sui He as well!)
The wonderful bag from Victoria Beckham’s F/W 2012 line. She is definitely the best celebrity-turned-designer out there. Like the others, I see a lot of Céline and also Valextra inspiration going on, though. Nevertheless, the clean lines mixed with the thoughtfully added details are to die for.
Most people, with a definitive affinity to certain things, are more or less ardently looking for their holy grail.
For me, THIS exact Mulberry Piccadilly will do the trick. I’ve heard that it’s not exactly the most practical size, with the reinforced base making it extremely heavy, but who cares? If I have one, I would just be putting in nothing else but bills, a cellphone and keys. I’ll be very happy to have one, and I don’t mind it being extra slouchy. I normally love structured bags but this one will definitely get a free pass.
'O come 'ye HOLY GRAIL! <3
(And yeah, it is kind of despicable how the Alexa has been incessantly knocked off. And the smug look on the carriers of these fake bags. Bitch, please.)
