Casual Style: Sweat Me

Do you ever feel like it's easier to get dressed up than it is to go casual? Sometimes I have a hard time on the weekends because 70% of my wardrobe is work clothing. Sweatsuits are about as casual as it gets, and I have exactly two pair--they were Christmas gifts. I refuse to wear them outside of the house. As I am vehemently opposed to sweats of the hot-pink-velour-with-rhinestones-across-the-arse variety, I hadn't given much thought...

Show Nuff: London Fashion Week

Two Fashion Weeks down, two to go! London was, as usual, the wild card of the group, with a number of up-and-comers fresh out of Central Saint Martins showing their designs on the runways.  Tales of fabulous parties in hole-in-the-wall pubs filled with drunken, dancing (Br)it-girls make me want to say things like "What's all this, then?"  in a (really bad) faux-British accent! Let's get this party started: Houndstooth and checks and tweeds, oh my!  Traditional English gear mixed with modern...

Work Style: Gilded

I found this skirt on a thrifting venture a few years ago and was immediately drawn to the gilded paisley print and lacy trim. I imagined wearing it in Moscow, standing in front of Saint Basil's Cathedral, exhaling puffs of cold air, swathed in a exotic furry hat and muff. Since that particular vision has not yet come to fruition, I figured I'd better think of some other way to wear it. Pairing it with neutrals and muted shades works,...

Runway Copycat: Marc Jacobs

I tend to be veeeery impatient. This applies to pretty much all aspects of my life, and fashion is no exception. The stuff for fall from this past New York Fashion Week? Yeah, I want to wear it NOW.  If the look is simple enough--like this one from Marc Jacobs' show-- it's fairly easy to duplicate. So, without further ado: 1. American Apparel Tri-blend long sleeve v-neck, $30  2. Forever21 Tribal print scarf, $5.80  3. BuyCostumes.com...

Show Nuff: New York Fashion Week

The first of the Fashion Week(s) is drawing to a close, and as promised, I'll review some of my favorite looks from the New York collections.  A few things are patently obvious: 1. I definitely need to keep hitting the gym 2. I am in desperate* need** of some leather *not at all **cannot foresee any occasion in which it would be appropriate to wear Just goes to show that no matter what you're wearing, a fabulous furry/sparkly/animal print/looped yarn(?)...

Work Style: Black and White

In an effort to add a little variety to my already plentiful collection of black pants (really, who needs this many?), I ordered these drop-crotch trousers from asos.com.  I love the high waist, silky material, and tapered leg, and since they're so "trendy" I kept the top simple and focused on accessories. Shirt, Express; trousers, asos.com; shoes, Giuseppe Zanotti; Indian bridal necklace, bombayfashions.com; vintage earrings and pendant necklace.

Current Obsession: Indian Bridal Jewelry

Fueled by a newfound desire for dramatic necklaces (I'm usually an earring gal) and a late-night viewing of Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (it's not what you think), I am now obsessed with traditional Indian bridal jewelry. As a result, I've spent many hours Googling and ogling (is it a coincidence that those words are so similar?) Kundan jewelry, mangalsutra, tikka, jhoomar, and all sorts of beautiful things I want to drape myself in for no apparent...
