Spring/Summer 2013 - Men's Sneakers

Well, as a continuation of the previous post, here are some of the sneakers for Spring/Summer 2013 season that caught my attention. Truth be told, there were so many to be chosen from and to be shared here but I've streamlined them down to the ones that I would reallllly wear (and potentially buy, too). 

Metallic and neon colors are in this season as seen on Giuseppe Zanotti, Ferragamo (not shown here), Burberry (not shown here) and Maison Martin Margiela (also not shown), as well as monochrome which came as a surprise since black & white were the most unlikely colors for Spring and Summer. Monochrome are in full swing in the fashion house of Saint Laurent (not shown here), Givenchy and Lanvin. 

My favorite? The black and white Raf Simons and yellow/turquoise Giuseppe Zanotti. Let me know which one is your favorite and I welcomed any new input.

All images and prices are from Luisaviaroma, Ssense, Matches, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Who Says I Only Wear Designer Shoes?

I always believe that if something looks good and fits you equally good - although it is label-less or much more affordable than that of designer ones - it deserves the same accolade given to its luxury counterparts.

It's totally a no-brainer: why wouldn't you wear something that you like just because it doesn't have a major label on it? Plus, it's much cheaper too.

Same goes with this new desert boots I got from H&M.

I've been on the lookout for a decent desert boots to pair up with my jeans or khaki pants for quite some time. I have my eyes on Cole Haan's and Zegna's but finally settled down with this pair instead from H&M. 

I just love the rich blue color, the soft velvety suede and of course the price - they were retailed at only 79 bucks. That is like one tenth of Cole Haan's price.

The only downside of buying cheaper shoes is that they don't really fit your feet like a glove as opposed to that of designer ones (wear Lanvin or Louis Vuitton and you'll know what I mean). Besides, the material is paper-thin so you might not want to expect much comfort or protection from them. They looked good though and for that pricetag, I can't complain much. 

Oh, another downside, my sister wasn't feeling this shoes at all. She said I looked like a 'mat rempit'. Oh well.

Spring/Summer 2013 - Men's T-Shirt

New season has kicked in and the stores have been stocked with their latest collection. 

I took some time (make it about 10 hours) of my daily chores to ogle through some of the new collection online via Luisaviaroma & Ssense, my two favorite online stores. We'll  get to the shoes later on but for now, I'll share with you the t-shirt pieces that caught my attention.

All images are from Luisaviaroma and Ssense.

I'm really feeling the oversized t-shirt from Givenchy, the metallic stripes of Burberry and that oh-so-cute hippo t-shirt from Lanvin. Soon, perhaps?

Who Can Tell Me What Movie is This?

I loved the book and watched the movie countless times. And every time I did so, I learned new things and regained my love for the story and its original author.

My best friend Eugene would know this - this is his favorite part of the movie!

Waiting for That Turning Point

What do you do when you hit that bottom part of your life - thus far? 

Do you console yourself with some retail therapy and hope your new material possessions will make things OK? Do you do the Shila Amzah style - grab a guitar, sing a sad song whilst crying and put it on YouTube, because that's what *ehem* matured people would do? Or you simply shake it off and be adamant that this rough patch will eventually pass by?

Of course one can argue that everyone handles things differently. Same goes to you and me. Nobody can say how one person cope with his hard time is not right as everybody has their own way of channeling that I-feel-like-shit feeling. 

Except that Shila Amzah way again. That's just plain wrong, immature, desperate and shameless. 


What matters most is the company you keep close to in these hard times. The people you surround yourself with should be the ones that can make you forget your issues and at the same time work with you to resolve them. Even if they can't fix it for you, at least you know you'll find some solace in keeping close with the ones you love and most importantly, with the ones that love you.

It is said that the Eskimos have over a hundred words for snow. Sadly, when it comes to us to offer someone in need some comfort, we're always at a loss for words. Not many of us know, one who's enduring a hard time will hold on to our words of comfort like a valid oral testament that everything will get better. Well, I know it because I did do that. In times in need, you'll hold on to whatever positive spark left in your life in hope it will bring you faraway from that dark place you're in. 

If you happen to fall into that dark, seemingly-endless hole in your life, just be persistent and believe that everything will get better eventually. But if you know someone who's going through that phase, be kind and offer some help. You'll never know when you might need it for yourself.

As Mother Theresa said, if you can't feed all the hungry children in the world, just feed one - it will make all the difference.
