Want to live in our glam shoes? Make sure they’re flats.

11:15 AM: Arrive at Twinkle by Wenlan show. So smart arriving 15 minutes late – these things never start on time.

11:17 AM Walk alllll the way around the block to get in line behind about 100 other red sole clad, Marc Jacobs bag tot’n fashion fans


11:35 Sigh

11:45 Sigh

11:55 Line starts moving alllriiiight!

12 PM: See huge pile of nifty canvas gift bags. PR girls are holding ten of them within my arm’s reach. “Can I have a bag?”

“On the way out.”

There are like 100 bags piled up so feel ok with this.


12:01 PM: Where are the seats?

12: 02 PM: Where’s the show?

12:03 PM: Notice 3 models stepping off of Design Within Reachish coffee tables. PR person hands them gift bags

12:05 PM: Say to PR person

“What happened? Where’s the Show?”

“The models had to go – they had another show to go to.”

12:07 PM: Huh? OK. Follow a group of dumbstruck fashion gals out the door. Others stay inside looking dumbstruck.

12:08 PM: Sorry no more gift bags.

I am a fan of Twinkle by Wenlan.icon As I flip through a fashion mag I frequently find the clothes I covet are creations by Taipei native and New York based Wenlan Chia. That’s why I gave up my Sunday morning (on my wedding anniversary no less) to hustle down to the West Village for her show, but….can someone at least send me a gift bag???



Twinkle by Wenlan Drawstring Wrap Coat available at


Update: apparently there was a show….although I don’t know who saw it! View the the video.
