Layering, layering, layering…

By | Oct 7, 2011

Fall is here to stay, but that doesn’t mean that you have to bid adieu to dressing well that is, until it starts snowing. The key to the inevitable problem of chilly Ithaca weather? Layers, layers, layers! Cozy layering is the perfect way to transition your warm weather clothing into fall, and best of all, it’s…

Au Revoir, Paris Fashion Week!

By | Oct 5, 2011

Paris Fashion Week ends tomorrow, bringing the whirl of fashion shows and designer collections to a close. While the fashions at NYFW were playful, the fashion at London Fashion Week were sedate and the looks at Milan were fiercely chic, the collections at Paris Fashion Week were beautifully ethereal and other-worldly. Alexander McQueen kept its…

Kanye West Collection Debuts at Paris Fashion Week

By | Oct 2, 2011

Kanye West. I usually associate that name with the music industry and the Taylor Swift VMA debacle. However, Mr. West is now wearing another hat – fashion designer. Obviously, Kanye’s always had  a little bit of a fashion obsession (name-dropping designers like Christian Dior and Gucci in his songs, attending fashion shows and most recently,…

The Sartorialist gets Snappy….

By | Sep 29, 2011

Imagine my surprise when I was browsing my Twitter feed and came across this The Talks interview with the Sartorialist, Scott Schuman (I used one of his images in a previous post). I’m always down for a candid fashion blogger interview, but this one was slightly discomforting. Cold, aloof and condescending Schumann reduces adorable teenie-bopper fashion…

Sweater Time

By | Sep 28, 2011

The weather is really starting to get chilly and crisp outside, so I’m dreaming of sweaters for fall. On the top of my wish list? A crew neck, chunky cable knit sweater in a creamy oatmeal tone – I’ve literally been visualizing it all day today (and apparently vocalizing about it, according to my roomies…)…

And a little something for the boys….

By | Sep 24, 2011

I realized that with all the Spring and Summer ’12 collections, I haven’t written at all about menswear – which is completely unfair to the boys out there who’ve been looking for some male-centric style coverage. We’ll get to some actual runway looks soon, but let’s take a look at this awesome snapshot from The…

Celebrating 100 years of style

By | Sep 23, 2011

London Fashion Week ended yesterday and to celebrate the fabulous fashions shown there, I found the cutest video on celebrating 100 years of style in just 100 seconds! 100 years of what to wear in 100 seconds – Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JxfgId3XTs&feature=player_embedded    

NYFW is over, but London Fashion Week is here!

By | Sep 21, 2011

Yes, NYFW is over, but that doesn’t mean that the fun has to end….London Fashion Week is here! Here’s another winning look from the week: I’m loving the strong, bright colors – it seems like the Brits’ collections are shaping up to be edgier and sleeker than ours. Also, let’s discuss not to sound like…

A Decade of Style at Harper’s Bazaar

By | Sep 18, 2011

It’s been ten years since British-born Glenda Bailey took the helm of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, a role that has belonged to some of the most iconic fashionistas of our time, including the irrepressible Diana Vreeland. Now, however, Bailey’s work is being celebrated as well at the International Center of Photography in NYC with an exhibit called…

Goodbye, NYFW!

By | Sep 16, 2011

All good things must come to an end, and today I’m saying goodbye to NYFW. I have to admit that many of the collections towards the end were my favorites and that has nothing to do with the fact that Marc Jacobs moved his show to 8:30 pm on Thursday night. Or the fact that…

Into the Wild

By | Sep 16, 2011

I can’t decide if I think these are creepy or cool … but I’m definitely leaning toward creepy. Glenda Lopez, a young jewelry designer reppin’ Madrid, released a collection called “Welcome Instinct,” inspired by the animals of the wild. Personally, I like to think of it as a line of jewelry featuring my favorite characters from…

NYFW…continued…

By | Sep 14, 2011

Two days left of New York Fashion Week, and the fashion’s as quirky as ever. Case in point: Marc by Marc Jacobs! Remember what I said earlier about the trends for spring? Textures, excellent construction, prints, bright colors, QUIRKINESS?!? They were all in their full-fledged glory at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show – especially…
