While I was in Spain for the Benicássim festival I had company of a few other international bloggers, and one of them was the Polish Kasia. We featured in a New Look videoshoot together in which I am photographing her, and the pictures turned out so well I had to share them in today’s Wednesday Wear-Abouts!
Blogger Bryan Boy is the judge of the Full Time Fabulous Blogger Award, a blogger competition with the ultimate price: an aparment in The Big Apple, € 75.000 cash and € 750 a month for styling jobs and front row seatings at fashion shows in New York, Milaan and Paris. May we die?
A little while ago I had to go to Milan. This was already the fourth time I had to go for one of my clients and – in spite of my big fashion heart and traveling soul – I have to admit I basically don’t like Milan…. There’s only one perfect little area but well… that’s it. So this fourth time, and I feel like a big brat for admitting this, I tried to get out of it. (believe me, I even kept postponing buying my ticket, hoping a miracle would pass) No miracles passed so in the end it was just me heading off to Schiphol, my Samsonite business suitcase (yes, we have a super cool light weight travel kit at the office. How cool is that!) and a dozen of GG’s on my laptop, prepared for another boring couple of days.
I work at a PR office that mainly works for fashion clients. You might even say ‘I work in fashion’. And it’s the best job in the world! At least at this moment it is. So how come I always have to defend myself for working in fashion and loving it? Even to my own friends! Last night I spoke to this guy who -amazingly- knew who Tom Ford is. So I thought: Ha! Nice! Someone who will not judge me.
Never forget that although someone may wear an article of clothing, a shoe wears you.
Despite the difficulty of clomping around in bamboo stilt Prada wedges or a patent leather construction that resembles a japanese dominatrix’ interpretation from Nina Ricci, the platform twin-towers are wearing us with a vengeance.
My on-again, off-again love affair with chunky high heeled shoes may seem ridiculous for some people. But when you consider the risks of wearing them, it starts to make sense…
