I've seen plenty of dudes sportin' the classic letterman jacket, but it's not until recently that I'm seeing ladies get in on the action as well. The bow ties, loafers, and cardigans of school years past have since become staples in many people's wardrobes, so it's only natural that this schoolyard gear would also make an appearance. The jackets were all over the runway, at shows from Alexander Wang and Phillip Lim to Moschino and Rag & Bone. They can now ... Read More
Model, Coco Rocha, a fan of tumblr and a blogger herself, recently came in contact with photographer, Jamie Beck, through Tumblr’s fashion director, Richard Tong. As a part of Tumblr’s fashion week collaborations, Coco and Jamie came together to create these gorgeous cinemagraphs, or as Coco describes them, “Beautiful images that are more than a photo, but not quite a video.” Wearing Oscar de la Renta and set in Coco's apartment the ...

It’s said that a woman’s purse contains all sorts of mysterious items that baffle the male species.

On the outside it looks like a normal clutch, but when you open it ... Read More

Ever since I caught sight of Keep's kicks, I've been borderline obsessed with boat shoes. My tootsies just don't feel right without them (seriously, I have 6 pairs, it's kind of sad). They're like Vans slip-ons, except way cuter. Now Keep is satisfying my snack attack with pretzel-patterned sneakers! Don't they look yummy?
Never heard of Keep? The line was started by designers Una Kim and Margot Jacobs in 2006. The ... Read More

Pictured above is Hayley Morley, a UK size 12 model who spurred controversy when she brought some realism to the runway. Hayley and two other ''curvy'' women appeared alongside stick-figure thin models in Mark Fast's London Fashion Week show last Saturday. The biggest shocker is that their inclusion prompted Fast's stylist and creative designer to walk out over ''creative differences.''
Luckily, two freelancers stepped in to help with the ... Read More

My mom likes to call her walk-in closet ''the archives,'' and for good reason: the wardrobe filed away inside is a repository of fashion history. Swearing that ''fashion is cyclic,'' she has stowed artifacts from every fashion craze since the sixties. Double-breasted blazers, polyester frocks, and an impressive collection of spandex stirrup pants are all hoarded in her vault-of-vogue. Sometimes she can explore the depths and resurface a ...

It's fashion week in NY, and that means tons of parties and shows. Did your Marc Jacobs invitation get lost in the mail? Yeah, mine too, but never fret, there are plenty of fun things to do and see, even if you are not attending any shows.
One such event is a Block Party hosted by the stores on Centre Market Place, (that weird little street just west of Little Italy- googs it). Built by Wendy , No. 6 (amazing vintage!) Pipino Salon, and others are throwing ... Read More
