Anybody Home?

I've been such a bad blogger lately. Between work and writing and tending to my sick kitty and being plain ol' tired, I just haven't felt like it. I'm thinking of cutting back to two posts per week instead of my usual three, just to give myself some breathing room. *Sigh*. Why is life so haaaaard? </unnecessary drama> On the plus side, I had a small picture in an ad for Lucky Style Spotter in the September...

Caribbean Queen

Reading about everyone's tropical vacations this summer when the furthest I'm destined to travel is Northern Kentucky (which yes, is just as exciting as it sounds. As in not at all.) has been a bit depressing. I like hot weather and beaches and drinks with umbrellas in them, too! One third of my prayers was answered when it got up to the 90's this past weekend, so I decided to look on the bright side and...

Random Fashion Inspiration

I figure we've known each other long enough to expose you to my errant babble and rambling life reflections: I discovered Scandanavian designer Henrik Vibskov a few months ago and am LOVING his effortlessly blase pieces. Did y'all ever "design" new outfits with Fashion Plates and a bunch of stubby colored pencils? And did you play with Designer Denim Barbie? I remember those pink molded plastic cowboy boots like it was yesterday...

Best of: Personal Style

You know how sometimes you'll sit down to watch one of your favorite TV shows only to find out three minutes into it that it's a rerun show? No, I don't mean rerun as in beret-wearing What's Happening? Rerun, I mean it turns out to be one of those "best of" recap shows that always seems to pop up during a writer's strike/contract negotiations/general production laziness. Well, think of this post as a "Best of The...

Style: Such a Tees

On my way to Fountain Square to take a break from working (and working and working) on the upcoming issue of Style Sample Magazine. I decided to wear my new Nati Evolvement tee (thanks guys!) with a stretchy cotton pencil skirt and the high-heeled ugly-but-cool booties to sex it up a bit. After adding a print scarf and a casually tipped beret, I was ready for some Graeter's ice cream*! It's a really easy look to...

Inspiration: Vuitton Blushes in the Nude

Though it's almost the complete opposite of the fierce Xena Takes Manhattan looks we saw on the Fall runways, I was drawn to this softly feminine ensemble at Louis Vuitton. By using draping and ruching instead of ruffles and frills, toning down candy-sweet shades of pink with neutral beige, and adding glossy black accents via accessories, it's a modern take on femme fatale that's easy to duplicate: 1. Top, asos 2. Hareem trousers, Topshop 3. Hebano...

Style: Bold Shoulder

Dynasty reruns notwithstanding, I think we can safely say 80's fashion has been in full-on revival mode since the surprisingly persistent return of the legging. Though early 90's-era grunge has been threatening to take over for the last few seasons, the multitude of shoulder pads on the Fall runways indicated that, at least 'til next February, the 80's are still the retro decade of the moment. Images, Style.com To get in on the bold shoulder action, I...
