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…

‘New Year’s Eve’: Stars fade in holiday film

By | Dec 14, 2011

Garry Marshall’s latest film, “New Year’s Eve,” is as flat as leftover champagne, lacking the liveliness and effervescence to make up for the plot’s inadequate substance.

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…

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…

Accessorizing a Cortaca Hangover

By | Nov 14, 2011

It’s the day after Cortaca and judging from the general hungover subdued demeanor around campus, Ithacans were very BUSY yesterday but I might have surmised that from the hullabaloo that started at 7:30 am in my hall yesterday morning. Whether you’re feeling the effects of pre-game drinks or post-Cortaca festivities (or both) OR if you’ve just had…

Just another post about Barneys

By | Nov 10, 2011

Barneys has just been full of delightful news this week – firstly, a Lady Gaga themed holiday workshop; could shopping get any fiercer than Mother Monster? Now, I’ve discovered that they just opened up a new “CO-OP” space called “Boy Meets Girl,” which basically means that the men’s and women’s department have joined forces so you…

Barneys to team up with Mother Monster

By | Nov 10, 2011

Just when you thought that Lady Gaga couldn’t dominate another aspect of pop culture, she has now taken over swanky department stores. That’s right – this holiday season, Gaga will be spreading festive cheer at the ever-venerable Barneys New York, where there will be a “Gaga workshop.” Guests will enter through the mouth of a…

Christian Louboutin Celebrates 20 years of Sole-ful Shoes

By | Nov 3, 2011

Christian Louboutin is celebrating 20 years in the shoe business; in the two decades that he’s been working, his shoes have set a new standard in the fashion industry for his uber-sexy, ultra-edgy towering shoes. He’s even garnered a song about them – J.Lo’s song, Louboutins, that she performed (and fell) during the 2009 AMAs.…

Exhibit builds NYC history

By | Nov 2, 2011

Amid the soaring city skylines depicted in gradients of grays, blacks and whites, the limbs of construction workers parallel the lines of the majestic building they are working on, the Empire State Building. The most striking part of the photograph, however, is not the architecture but its human counterparts — the workers.

What I Wore: Halloween edition

By | Oct 30, 2011

Today, I’m paying homage to one of my favorite style bloggers, Jessica Quirk, who writes, What I Wore, which sounds exactly like its name. She takes a picture everyday of what she’s worn, then posts it on her tumblr (remember my former post about my tumbling addiction?!?) – in short, it’s an inspiration to dress…
