A Big To-Do

As all of you Wang fans must have known, today was the unveiling of the Alexander Wang and H&M's highly anticipated collaboration. As a great fan myself of A. Wangs designs (but not of the prices), I awaited with baited breath and cobweb filled pocketbook, for the landing of what could be the closest I could get to a piece hanging in my closet without having to sell my liver.

☞☞ Drumroll please

The fruit of Wang's loins however, truly didn't wow me in the way I thought would happen. Waiting in line at the H&M powell street location here in SF, the frightful tension arose, as if I were waiting for Dita von Teese to take her top off and reveal her tassel bejeweled nips. I strolled around at what seemed to be a fire hazard waiting to happen. "92% polyester" the materials listed, and so forth. Either these items were meant to be worn in sub-zero weather, or they were meant for you to workout in to provoke quite a sweat or even perhaps, this collaboration wasn't really thought through. There was quite a mumble going round, some excitement, some disappointment, where at one point a guy said "and to think people were waiting at 11pm the night before to purchase this stuff".

Not to diss nor offend anyones taste, but I was pretty pouty to say the least, the collection was pretty pricey for the low quality of materials used (not the leather however, I admit that was on point with most other leather goods). I was not all smiles as when the Maison Margiela x H&M collab came out 2 years ago, which didn't seem to break the bank with sales it seems with inventory still hanging about the store even 2 weeks after unveiling, but the collection was nonetheless unusual, creative and pretty awesome, price wise on point. Remember that reversed inside out leather jacket? Swoonage. H&M used to be affordable, but now seems to have risen in price at least 40% over the last 5 years. A fake fur coat made in China for $129? Who the hell even knows how "ethical" or environmental friendly that must've been to put together that jacket, I don't want to fathom it. I could go on and on, but thats a whole other rant. I'll spare you that until next time!

I did however peruse the racks and found this piece in particular to be interesting. Oversized, outerspace-like form and the best part? Sith-lord hood. Sold!

(After wearing it around for no more than 20 minutes, I returned the sucker. It was uncomfortable, terribly hot and stiff to the point where I truly just wanted to bust out in robotic hand motions) ��

Oh well, Wang dreams have dissipated, and Im still awaiting that orgasmic H&M collab that might never happen.

Lady in Red

☞ Initially, this dress was supposed to be for a different occasion.


I decided to go as Lydia Deetz this year for Halloween, and upon finding this red disaster of a dress in the mission at Clothes Contact, I sighed in relief I did not have to search any further, as I hate spending too much money on a costume and am not the most thrilled at hunting for one.

Alas, it was not to be, as I furiously pulled on the dress prior to this shoot, I realized I was foolish for not sizing it up better, and for not trying the darn rag on, as it went "Rrrrriiiiiiippppp!.." all the way my bum. It was just too bootylicious.

Booty vs. Red Dress 1-0.

That was the score. And boring and elderly as I could be, I traded in my night out for a night in, cat snuggles and Hocus Pocus followed by The Witches of Eastwick on the small screen.

Fearing the Reap

You reap what you sow blah blah blah.
✤☞☞☞✤
I guess we don't always take that to heart.

But we're all doing mighty fine, I guess.

I guess it ain't that bad, because we weren't purposely reaping some major poo at the time. Were we cutting ourselves short? Hey the poo is better than nuthin. Should we be reaping less and contemplating a little more before head-diving into the reap action in the first place?

Maybe. I guess. Who knows. I don't have many answers obviously. I shouldn't be complaining at 2 am. The grass seems greener on any other side than the one you're butt is on anyway.

Late night pizza, get at me. The humming of that fridge is getting on my nerves and kinda nice at the same time.
Goodnight y'all.
