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…

Cheerio, London Fashion Week!

By | Feb 22, 2012

The arrival of leggy models and fashion personalities into my current city of Milan can only mean one thing – London Fashion Week is over! And what a week it was. After a tad lackluster showings last season for spring and summer, it looks as though the Brits are ready to do fall and winter…

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…

True Love and Tiffany’s via Scott and Garance

Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist and Garance Doré of her own eponymous blog are two of the most iconc street style photographers, veritable pioneers in the ever-growing field of fashion photo bloggers. Now Tiffany’s has tapped their talents for their latest campaign, “What Makes Love True.” The two snapped photos of couples a la street…

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…

Back to Black: Amy Winehouse tribute during Paris Couture Week

By | Jan 27, 2012

This week, Paris has been filled with the whimsy and fantasy of haute couture and designer Jean-Paul Gaultier’s collection has been no exception. His collection of hour-glass, pin-up vamp clothes in homage to the late Amy Winehouse has sparked controversy and accolades from everyone from the music community to fashionistas. I, for one, saw the…

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…

Traveling in Style

By | Dec 22, 2011

As I write this, I’m sitting in the waiting area of the only terminal at Ithaca Airport, which is notorious for its flaky flights and technical issues. My flight was scheduled to leave in ten minutes, but it looks as though it won’t be leaving for another hour. That being said, all of that extra…

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…

Color Blocking

By | Dec 1, 2011

Like many other fashionistas, I love Marc Jacobs. My latest obsession with his creations? His color blocking satchels in bright, punchy tones. Color blocking has been slowly trending for the past couple of seasons, and especially with the recent 60s and 70s revival, vintage inspired color blocking has been especially popular. These satchels are a…

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…
