Enfin!


Good news for Vogue Paris lovers! The website of Vogue Paris can 'finally' be read in English. I've no idea  
(Of course, I do! Aghh, Those French people and their everlasting attitude to this language matter, like 'If you are in France, you gotta speak our own language!') why it took them ages to translate their website into English, but it's better late than never, right?

Love 'em or Hate 'em

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Wedge sneakers; it's a love or hate issue. They used to seem quiet weird to me; in fact, the idea of putting wedges under the sole of sneakers. 'cause you either have sneakers or a heeled/wedged elegant shoes on. I'm a 'either black or white' type of person, that's why I can't stand these 'bestseller' tshirts in Zara, Mango etc. with chiffon on the front and combed cotton on the back side. Chiffon and combed cotton together in one single piece is unbearable for me. 
But that was the situation UNTIL Isabel Marant came up with the 'hidden wedge' idea. You seem like having your comfy sneakers on but ta taaam, you look 5inch taller than you normally used to do with them. That, I loved! The surface of the trainers continuing on the wedge does the trick. And now that they've become the 'hit' pieces of all these fashionistas' shoe closet, many of the brands've started to lay their hands on them. Ash,Chloé, Marc Jacobs are the first ones that come up to my mind. And also on ASOS you can find them at an affordable price.

Robot Hands


Not to restrain you from that 'magnificent' Sunday night syndrome you're all probably having right now ( God! I hate the first hours of Monday! And, wait, I have to get up in 5 hours and 53 mins! Agh!) (Okay, no panic, enjoy the moment.) but I've a question to ask you all. While I was checking up on the recently added photos by Tommy Ton on his site, I saw that Asian (I guess) guy smoking a cigar with gloves on. How on Earth can those people manage to smoke a cigar wearing gloves on? Especially with the leather and cosy ones, I mean the ones that don't wrap your fingers slimly. Whenever I attempt to give it a try, my hand holding the cigar seems like a robot hand, I can't bend any of my fingers, cant hold it tightly, nor loosely and freak out! I even once made my friend hold it for me when I didn't know in what way I have to hold the cigar with my gloves on. (Don't say 'Take them off and smoke with bare bands.' The point is smoking with gloves on when it's freezing cold outside.)
As a matter of fact, that guy in that photo looks no different than I do. Do you see how robotic his hand looks?
 But there must be a posh way to do it! 
 Or may be not. May be what makes a cigar look sexy is the form the hand takes and the posture of the fingers while holding it.
