Cuz that's how I roll


I'm having a real man-streak at the moment -- and not in the dating way.

Lately I've been scoring a lot of fantastic menswear and accessories for my own closet. Rings from Margiela and L'Eclaireur mens' shop in Paris, a bag from Yohji Yamamoto Homme culled from the rails at Atelier New York, and, today, the biggest coup of all -- a pair of this season's bestest oxford from Comme des Garcons in my size (!!!!) from Barneys.

See, I've been after these shoes the entire season, but no one seemed to have them in a size small enough to fit. I even went to the Comme flagship on 22nd street several times, but they couldn't help me. Today, on a random trip to Barneys to help Gary pick out a birthday shirt, I stopped by the men's designer shoe department on the third floor and, lo and behold, they have them in a close-enough to my size and on sale!
