Beauty Bar 1/31/09: Showing off my latest accomplishment, the Zoolander look. I'm such a winner.
Copenhagen Fashion Week starts on Feburary the 4th. Do what I did to get in to parties and runway shows: email the contact person and ask to be added to the list. The runway shows are harder to get in to. If they ask your affiliation, as in wanting to see if you're in the industry, just say "I have no formal ties, but I'm an avid spender and supporter of the industry and specifically your brand. I can give you the number to my Visa Black Card to verify my numerous purchases with your line." They won't ask for the number. Okay, technically the last part isn't completely true, but if one did have a Visa Black Card, I'd believe such a statement would be honest. Either way, it worked for me.
My Sava Anna! t-shirt is way too big. The sizing isn't true to American Apparel wear. I thought I should share in case one of my readers gives in and buys one. Sharing is caring.
South By South West Tip: If you're able to take a trip to Austin for SXSW and you find yourself waiting in line, at lets say the Beauty Bar, my advice to you is to jump the fence. Even if you fall on your ass at the first attempt because some fellow gays were just too inebriated to help you, go for it again. After you clear obstacle 1, run and go get lost in the crowd to avoid the bouncers and await for your friends to take their turn in jumping the fence. You'll be someone's hero at the end of the night. Well, that what one person said to me.
Taking Advantage of the Recession in Britain. I really enjoyed reading this article because basically that's been my strategy lately. I just bought some grey, patent leather loafers from S***r and I'm loving them and the price. Don't throw a fit when you see the shipping cost. It cost $50 to ship a pair of shoes from England to Texas, but when you're calculating discounts and other variables, buying it online from an international website usually wins. Other websites to check out: Oki-Ni and Asos. (via Refinery 29)
