Fashion Week Faves: NY Fall 2012

  So far, Autumn/Winter 2012 fashion is shaping up to include the usual leather, dark colors, and beautiful coats that seem to appear every Fall. Color blocking is still a thing, though it's been one-upped by pattern blocking--combining multiple prints and patterns--and it looks like pops of bright color (including Spring's tangerine shades) and quirky ironic sweaters will be around for another season or two. Some of my faves from the NYC runways: Definitely enjoyed the Narciso-meets-Balenciaga...

Blue Star

  Every year when the temperature dips below 50, I look forward to wearing these pants. I'm not sure why--something about the combination of high-waisted seventies goodness and plush blue velvet intrigues me. Vintage trousers and shoes; Polo boy's oxford; VS tee; thrifted scarf Is it just me or does the front of my hair bear a strange resemblance to the Chrysler Building here?...

Tumblr Tuesday: Rainbow Eyes and Purple Quartz

  Multicolored rainbow eye shadow used to be my go-to party look, and I think it's time to bring it back; If I drove through a tunnel of purple blossoms every morning I might appreciate the commute a bit more; Layering patterns and textures like paisley and lace is one of the best ways to create interest and depth; Sturdy-heeled ankle boots are the perfect antidote to an abbreviated hemline; I'm still not over my obsession...

NY Fashion Week: Video Vanguard

  Thanks to the internets, it's easier than ever to follow what's happening on and off the runways during New York Fashion Week. Besides the usual pictures and reviews and street style snaps, video is making me feel like I'm in the front row, albeit in sweats instead of Suno. In particular: YouTube's Live From the Runway.    What's your favorite way to keep up with the shows? The Greatest Voice of All On a much sadder note, RIP to...

Tumblr Tuesday: Sunsets and String Theory

The combination of patterns and silhouettes from this clothing line is so appealing; I know my fellow party people know how this one goes; Wallpapering only a portion of the wall seems like a much better idea than trying to cover a whole friggin' room;I can feel myself slipping into a vacation state of mind and there's nothing I can do about it; The layers of color and chiffon on this dress are reminiscent of...

Pitti Me

  I just realized how weird it is that I never pay attention to the menswear collections, when it's well documented just how much I love menswear. That's gotta change, no?   The tailoring makes for an easy crossover, and most of the styling can be applied to women's RTW--blazers, vests, trousers, and sweaters are all things most women wear anyway. Trade flat shoes for a platform heel or high-heeled brogue, add a sparkly piece of jewelry and...

InVESTment

Something about my favorite Monchichi fur vest feels rugged and glamorous at the same time. That weird style dichotomy is what keeps me coming back to it again and again. Vintage vest and gloves; thrifted oxford; Forever21 skirt; Limited cardigan, Rupert Sanderson boots; earrings from The Little Mahatma Do you have any pieces that work dressed up OR down? How do you wear them?...
