Mags and Medals

All my friends know I'm a fashion magazine fiend. I starve myself just to buy them. Goodness knows I bug my friends to buy me this, get me that, etc. Recently, Liz got me the Fantastic Man Helmut Lang issue I've been dying to get. Kiks is in Japan and got me Vogue Hommes Japan issue 1 and 3, already. Loven (stuck in waterworld Manila but hopefully back in SR by Monday) is overweight from the Preview, Mega, Garage and Metro I harassed my friends to give to him for moi. And I haven't made up my mind yet what to ask Lyka and the Stepsisters in San Francisco since my Ms. International friend, Gibsy Cruz Araneta Colliseum, is going there this coming October.

That's why I'm so happy tonight to receive this loot from Thailand national treasure and Tourism Authority muse, Kawadjan, ITSELF! I'm poring over 5 CHEEZE magazines, which is possibly the best chronicler of Bangkok street style and fashion. Super duper inspiring! I swear, everyone's so chica (K, fave ko yung military issue).

He also gave me two medal - medalan pins for my A.P.C. military jacket which I'm planning to wear tomorrow. Can't wait. I did expect a Balenciaga bag with the loot but I don't know what happened. K, dear, more to come, please! ;)

And I popped by the gym for a quick core muscle work-out and got this Vanity Fair issue with a Farrah Fawcett tribute. The other double cover is Michael Jackson, whcih I presume has sold-out. I browsed inside and there was a haute couture article by Amy Fine Collins I'll leisurely devour later. There was another issue with Jackie O. on the cover which I plan to get on Monday.

We'll send you a book called: "Mary Magdalene Wears Simon Peter:Fashion in the time of Jesus" by Anne Freud Rice

Proverbs 31:22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

Matthew 23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments.

Mark 6:9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

We'll definitely send it through Gibsy Cruz Araneta Coliseum. The official carrier of extra fats. Charoooot!

sobrang vintage naman yata ng fashion reference mo!

may naisip na akong pasalubong para sa akin, wehehehe!

I think perfect ang pasalubong ni Miss Lyka for you coz at least it sounds like it's a meeting of the Bible (your favorite book) and pasyon... este fashion.

I agree... win ang military issue. Bagay sa medals of valor mo, ning.
