I remember the first time I saw the title “Socialite” used to describe a person. I was thumbing through an issue of Vogue magazine and there it was, in a caption under the photo of an immaculately dressed woman. Where did I go wrong? How did I end up not being photographed at a swanky event, wearing the latest designer duds, sipping champagne? What left turn did I make when I should’ve gone right? The world may never know….Continue reading “I Should’ve Been A Socialite”
Today marked the start of New York Fashion Week! Another year where I am sitting in my office scrolling through the images on my work desktop. Another year where I am bracing for the unattainable and undesirable. And yet. Here is Tom Ford with his Spring 2019 collection that makes me yearn for fall, cool crisp air, and a city street block to walk upon.Continue reading “God Bless Tom Ford”

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!”
Max Azria loves a good bandage dress. Honestly, who doesn’t? This Fall collection presents a slightly updated bandage dress (more straightjacket and fringey) along with some lovely cut out dresses, asymmetrical necklines, studded gowns, and black swan like feathered jackets and cloaks. I loved the darkness and street-chicness of it all. Now, everybody head over to my Kickstarter page and give me money so I can be one of the cool kids!
I love Temperley London. The ethereal gowns and wispy chiffon blouses are beautiful. Nip slips aside, they’re gorgeous articles of clothing. Alice Temperley knows how to make amazing pieces that you want to wrap yourself up in. Her Spring 2014 ready to wear collection, shown at London’s Fashion Week didn’t disappoint. From the natural, berry lips to the floral and animal print mashups, it was all breathtakingly lovely. Don’t you just love the ladylike dress and jacket combos?
