There are many people out there who are interested in Asian culture and I don't just mean those who think that the Japanese make the most imaginative p0rn. They often want to reflect this in their personal style, but to a lesser extreme than Alyssa Milano.

There are very few things I will sell out for and they include Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Collette Dinnigan, a really stylish military jacket for winter, and the aforementioned DVD of Something's Gotta Give.
