Give Me Temperley or Give Me Death….Actually, just Temperley will be Fine

Looking over Temperley London’s Spring 2016 RTW collection just makes me want to grab a paper fan, drop some more ice cubes in my mojito, and lean back.  Continue reading “Give Me Temperley or Give Me Death….Actually, just Temperley will be Fine”

Viva Vivienne!

I’ve never been a super big fan of Vivienne Westwood’s collections. I could maybe find a few items here and there that I thought were pretty cool. But, low and behold… Continue reading “Viva Vivienne!”

Lupita Covers Vogue, Again!

Lupita Nyong’o is on the cover of the upcoming October Vogue. This makes the second cover in a row that Vogue has featured a black woman, and it’s Lupita’s second cover for Vogue (her first was in July of 2014). These are all good things. What’s even better is the photo spread inside. Continue reading “Lupita Covers Vogue, Again!”

So, I Guess the Lauren Conrad Collection is Okay?

Say what you want about Lauren Conrad (she’s basic, she’s boring, she’s bland), but the chick has one serious business head on her shoulders. She has parlayed a reality tv show part into a mini empire that includes, books, clothes, accessories, and more. Continue reading “So, I Guess the Lauren Conrad Collection is Okay?”

Festival Season

After everyone has finished pranking you for April Fools Day with insect ice and staplers that don’t really staple ( haha George in Accounting), it’s time to start planning your long weekends that will be filled with music festivals. I think I may have skipped over that brief period of time in my life when I would have actually enjoyed going to  Coachella or Bonnaroo. Now, I can’t be bothered. It’s too damn expensive and it’s too many fucking people.

I am, however, attending the Charm City Folk and Bluegrass Festival here in Baltimore, so I still get to wear some “festival fashions” this spring. A quick Google search will inform  you that festival fashions are basically what people people wore in the 60s and 70s, on a daily basis. Except now, you have to pay $95 plus shipping from a shop on Etsy.

While all festival fashion looks usually involve some sort of floppy hat and floral printed item, there are still plenty of variations for you independent women out there.

Suit Jacket Required

So, my dear friend from  middle school is getting married this weekend. This will be the first wedding I have attended in over 4 years. Man, have I missed free alcohol and crappy DJ music.

Since it’s still early spring, I’m going to wear a suit. I had bought this awesome Marc Jacobs dress (similar to this dress) from Uptown Cheapskate, but alas, it is still not warm enough.

I’m excited to wear my make-shift- suit to her wedding. I really wanted to wear a jumpsuit, but I do not have $1,700. Sorry Derek Lam. And after reading this horrible crap yesterday, I feel like sticking it to convention in any way that I can.

If you’re like me, wanting to spice it up a bit in the formal attire arena, check out these for some inspiration.

After the show is the After-Party!

Obviously everyone saved their fun/risque/awesome dresses for the Oscar’s After-Party because the dresses worn to the actual event were fairly safe and boring. Aside from Rosamund Pike, Jennifer Lopez,  and Zoe Saldana everyone else seemed to tow the line and color inside the boxes.

Zac by Zac Posen – Spring 15 RTW

It’s as if Zac Posen thought to himself, “Hmmmm, how would Makea dress if she had her dream life?” , and then proceeded to design this collection. The Spring 2015 RTW Zac collection is lovely and understated in the best way. With bright separates that are emboldened by geometric prints and watercolors, this collection embodies the springtime’s promise of freshness. The sharp separates are the ultimate in downtown girl chic. I would happily wear it all. I’d be the best-dressed lady in line at Target. Hands. Down.
