Runway Ripoff: Cynthia Steffe Spring ’12

Since Madre Naturaleza decided a little Summer-in-the-Fall weather was in order (not complaining!), I figured it was a good time to test drive another look from Spring 2012. Thrifted shirt and pants; Moda Int’l top; vintage heels A simple cropped sweater, men’s military shirt, and striped rayon pants I “altered” made it simple to replicate– I just added a stack of bangle bracelets and switched the strappy sandals (it is Fall, after all) for a...

How To: Dissect Runway Fashion

It’s Fashion Week(s)! While the relevance and timing of runway shows has been hotly debated, they’re still a very important part of the industry. At some point during the Fashion Week hullabaloo, someone unaccustomed to the intentional outrageousness of fashion shows–they’re called SHOWS for a reason–will say something like “who would actually wear that?” (Clearly, they’re unfamiliar with the likes of people like Daphne Guinness and Anna Dello Russo, who revel in bringin’ the cray-cray.)...

As I am obviously not one of those trust-funded types, my reason for following the cruise collections is a bit different and clearly self-serving: designers are showing clothes meant for...

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....
