Only my second fashion show to date, the 2011 BFA Parsons Fashion Show was certainly an exciting one! This is a show that has previously help launch the careers of designers such as Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler at one of the most renowned fashion schools in the world. Other designer alums include Anna Sui, Narciso Rodriguez, Peter Som, and host/speaker of the event, Reed Krakoff. As the show began, I felt like I was bombarded with fashion, my head ... Read More
Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend Parsons The New School For Design's BFA Fashion Show where I saw fashion galore! A more detailed post about some of the designers featured will soon be coming up, but for now, enjoy some of the super stylish audience members who attended. From stylish students and family to various media and press, you'd think it was Fashion Week the way audience members brought their own style to the mix. [The Rebel ... Read More
I previously blogged about the opening of the Alexander McQueen exhibit and the fashion extravaganza that is the Met Gala, but the exhibit itself deserves an entry all its own. There are people who are undeservingly called “genius” and “true artist” once they’ve died, but Alexander McQueen was not one of them. From day one, McQueen was a breath of fresh air in the fashion industry, one for the books I’d say. Since his death in ... Read More

With Mother’s Day approaching this weekend, if you’re in need of a great gift idea look no further than the new book My Mom, The Style Icon for the style appreciative parent. Blogger Piper Weiss came upon a pleasant discovery when she dug through old family photos of her parents, finding that her mother was not only a babe, but a très chic one at that.
For the past two years Weiss has been collecting photos of mothers from around the world and ... Read More
As much as I loved the excitement of McQueen on Middleton, the fashion from last night’s opening of the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition in conjunction with the annual Met Gala is more exciting to me than all the royal wedding dresses or oscar gowns in the world! You see less celebs playing it safe and instead bringing real glamour to the red carpet. I’m glad to see that just because it’s spring, the time of simple, flirty ... Read More
Congrats to Kate and William. I know coverage is everywhere, but I wanted to talk about a few bits of awesomeness that came out of this wedding. First of all, lets take a moment to admire Kate’s glorious Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton gown. No doubt about it, she looked stunning. Gotta hand it to Sarah Burton, this is one lady who’s good at keeping a secret. The gown was classically elegant and kind of reminiscent of the gorgeous gown Grace Kelly ... Read More
Ladies, Don’t let these new ladies' underwear sets, licensed by Marvel, fool you, real super powers are all in your head. Although, the idea is a totally sweet one, I find the execution of these sets completely ridiculous and uncomfortably sexist. Airbrushed cleavage “bursting” at the seams and tiny infant sized waistlines are sending the wrong message to the self-conscious, comic-book-reading,14-year-old girl in all of us. If you want to be a ... Read More

Coachella is a place where celebrities and concert go-ers alike blend together in a sea of festival style. While it’s still a bit chilly in N.Y.C., it warms my style spirit to see spring dresses, fancy sunglasses, and wide-brimmed hats galore. These pictures are a breath of fresh air as spring officially begins and people are wearing more and more color! It’s only going to get warmer here, but I hear it was pretty warm at Coachella already. You gotta ... Read More
