I still remember vividly the Wednesday evening in mid-spring 2005, when I stumbled onto Kitonbrioni's blog. A friend and I had a good laugh that day. As others pointed out, the wardrobe was overflowing with clichéd luxury--cashmere, shearling, alligator everywhere. Nothing seemed to fit, it all swamped what seemed to be a frail old man. I periodically checked the blog over the past 6 years, often going through the archives.
I think he enjoyed himself in that blog, which was good...and he made someone else laugh...which was even better.
Actually, 2 weeks ago, I PM'ed another SF member much older here than me, asking about VoxSartoria. His SF membership disappeared...I recently discovered his blog...did he reincarnate in Styleforum?
Voxsartoria's shoe collection, shoe storage rack (or maybe even shoe storage room) gave me the chills. I had read about Imelda Marcos...but seeing Voxsartoria's photos was another experience...
The other thing is Voxsartoria seems to live exactly where I lived when I was in the US, it's eerie to see fit pics taken in places that are so familiar. Who knows how many times our paths may have crossed in real-life...
