Mommy friendly wings for VS Angel Miranda Kerr

By | Apr 13, 2012

Victoria’s Secret “Angel” model, Miranda Kerr received a different type of wings when she visited Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show this week. The model is the proud (and incredibly photogenic) mother of 15 month old Flynn Bloom (her baby with, yep, you guessed it, the Orlando Bloom.) After gifting a pink bikini to Ellen, Miranda received…

Dior hires Minimalist Raf Simons as Artistic Director

By | Apr 12, 2012

After a few precarious seasons of being director-less (after John Galliano’s notorious falling out,) Dior has now appointed the newly-let go Raf Simons as the new artistic director for the prestigious French brand. Simons was recently let go from Jil Sander, where his work lauded much critical acclaim with his innovative color blocking brights, minimalist…

“It was Jason Wu…for Target..”

By | Feb 23, 2012

If you haven’t hopped on the “Shit Girls Say” train yet, this video might change your mind. Like the “Shit Fashion Girls Say,” it features the life and times of a fashion girl except it’s during the one of the most hectic times of the year: New York Fashion Week. The video also features Derek…

NYFW recap!

By | Feb 22, 2012

NYFW is over, which means that it’s time for a recap! This fall, styles are staying classic and elegant while still continuing to pay homage to the 70s – but tastefully so! More Charlie girl, less that 70s show. Silhouettes are streamlined, skirts are longer. I’m predicting knee length pencil skirts a la Faye Dunaway…

Grammy Fashion 2012

By | Feb 16, 2012

The Grammys were a night of triumph for many (Adele, anyone? Also, Kanye who was MIA – probably for the better, so he couldn’t enrage all the T. Swift fans out there..) but what was really triumphant was the fashion. Grammy winner of the night Adele was positively radiant in custom Armani Prive, red lips…

On the Cuff

By | Feb 8, 2012

During the month that I’ve called Milan home, I’ve noticed that its residents have excellent street style. Their apparel isn’t extremely trendy as much as it is cohesive. Their outfits go together from head to toe. One of the sartorial expressions that I love the most is cuffing pants. By cuffing pants slightly, it shows…

Looking forward…

By | Feb 6, 2012

This week kicks off New York Fashion Week, one of many international design showcases for the fashion trends for the upcoming fall and winter seasons. But for those purchasing their clothing off the racks, the thought of buying fall clothes before spring weather has even begun in Ithaca can be daunting. However, specific statement pieces…

Crazy for Collars

By | Jan 29, 2012

This season, collars are all the rage! Whether on loose chiffon shirts that are perfect for spring weather or on sweetly girly dresses, the collar is making a comeback in a big way. Styles can range from crisply traditional, like the collars on an oversized pinpoint Oxford or trendily retro like the Peter Pan style…

Goodbye North Face, hello stylish outerwear!

By | Jan 24, 2012

Ciao Ithacans! As I write this, the view outside my window is of the beautiful night skyline of Milan, one of the fashion capitals of the world. This semester, I’ll be blogging live from Italy, with the latest updates on fashion from a country known for its distinctive style. The weather’s been chilly here in…

Color blocking, part two

By | Dec 4, 2011

Color blocking yet again, ladies and gentlemen. For my post today, we will be examining a “Who wore it better” in color blocking; that is, me versus the Marc Jacobs purses from my last post. After drooling over looking at the purses, I realized that I could easily pull together a color blocking outfit in the…

Dressing for a Black Friday Showdown….

By | Nov 25, 2011

I hope that you had a great turkey day, filled with thanksgiving spirit AND food, family and friends, and fun! I know that I certainly had my fair share of holiday festivities today including but not limited to consuming large amounts of food all day. However, as I write this in the wee hours of the…

Man Repeller gets a man friend?

By | Nov 23, 2011

If you know anything about my style blogger obsession, you probably know that my favorite blogger of all time is The Man Repeller, Leandra Medine. Her philosophy about clothing can be summed up in her pithy Twitter bio: Love a good bow tie, never met a drop crotch I didn’t like. Coined the Arm Party™. Not…
