While looking at images from the Royal Wedding it was not Kate’s beautiful dress, nor the Prince’s charming smile that I noticed. No, it was the unique sculpture atop Princess Beatrice’s head that left a real impression on me. It's the most interesting hat I've ever seen, and I applaud the girl brave enough to wear it.
You’ve probably seen it by now—the Philip Treacy creation inspired an internet meme featuring things like cats ... Read More
There are awesome new fashion, design and food blogs every day. It’s hard to keep up quite honestly! Whenever I find a new blog I adore, I just want to share it with the world so I’ve decided to start a “blog of the week.” Most will probably be of the fashion variety, but there are tons of great general design and food blogs to showcase as well (evidenced by all the awesome food bloggers in this month’s issue).
The first ... Read More

Only my second fashion show to date, the 2011 BFA Parsons Fashion Show was certainly an exciting one!

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

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
