It was a thrill to catch up with my old pal, the talented Mr. William Yan, at the Oscar de la Renta resort show this week.
William and I first crossed paths back in ‘08 and I cannot tell you how proud I am—and how gratifying it is—to behold the blossoming of his now massive (and beyond well-deserved) cult following. He is a true gentleman with tremendous vision; I am certain that his fresh Brooklyn studio space and new portrait work are auspicious tokens of more forthcoming success!
He snapped me on the post-show dash:
Opening Ceremony dress, Patrik Ervell dragonfly bomber, Hansel from Basel socks, Carven for Robert Clergerie espadrilles, vintage Louis Vuitton briefcase, Opening Ceremony cat print auto umbrella, Lulu Frost vintage necklace, Vanities skull bracelet

Haven’t seen Julia for a while so it was a pleasure to get an update from the stylish girl-about-town who’s always at the coolest events and doing the coolest things while balancing her studies and freelance work for numerous magazines and making it all seem like a walk in the park. #propstoya
*Side Note: Julia is one of my favs to shoot, her style is on another level and beyond amazing all the time!

I know it is exceedingly niche, but I am a massive fan of the wedge-espadrille-brogue-oxford hybrid (aka “WEBOs”). For my birthday this past March, I was practically beside myself to receive the S/S 2010 Opening Ceremony par Robert Clégerie WEBOs—and, as my friends can attest—I literally wore them to their grim, tattered death.
So I suppose it goes without saying that I am ten types of psyched for the S/S 2011 Prada WEBOs to somehow… eventually… hopefully… (possibly?) find their merry way into my life.
Oh, and I hope you appreciate my camp photoshop skillz. The endeavor took ages and a team of twenty. Not really.

It ought to be noted that the accompanying blurb is in no way a direct quote. And also that I appear to be having a wind baby.)
Quick question: can anyone perchance identify the lovely woman at left in the lavender suit outside Oscar de la Renta? Many thanks for any hints…
