new york city's mayor declare today to be burberry day!

thursday 28th may has been declared burberry day in new york city! the proclamation, by new york city’s mayor bloomberg, is in honour of the continued investment and commitment burberry makes to new york and the US and coincides with the official lighting of the burberry logo on the rooftop of the new burberry americas headquarters at 444 madison avenue. the billboard in above picture will be lid across the iconic manhattan skyline for the first time later this evening! how i wish i am in new york now!

to further celebrate burberry day, 20% of all purchases made in burberry new york stores at 57th street and spring street in soho on the day will be donated to the burberry foundation. the foundation is committed to dedicate global resources to help young people realise their dreams and achieve their potential through the power of their creativity.

to celebrate on this side of the pond, here's a feature on one of my favourite pair of shoes (it looks elongated and gargantuan but it really is just a size 43!) :
the shoe shine guy comes round weekly, and he who has seen and handled the creations of many a good shoemakers couldn't help but paid high compliments on this pair of boots. the leather is so so soft and it fits like a glove. unlike most ankle boots, the ample height also prevent trousers from getting caught on top of the shoes when i'm sitting down.

the handmade shoes retailed for £399 about a year and a half ago, but i got it at the factory store (am i giving my secrets away??) for a fraction of the price. i couldn't bear to wear it for well over 6 months as it is just so pretty.

british actor and ex-burberry model hugh dancy also has a pair as i found out in my december 2007 edition of british GQ. (can't probably tell from the scan but trust me i have the mag, it's the same pair!)

and and and, christopher bailey also has a pair!!! i am that much closer to him now hehe!

can i class mr dancy, mr bailey and myself as sole mates please?

happy burberry day!



what's he wearing?
