TIPS FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE

Published on 07.11.11

The manic brights in Christopher Kane’s S/S coIlection were one of my inspirations for this teen trash manicure (alongside forgotten flash genre NEU-RAVE and trailer park glamour, sorry Chris). Since my whole style M.O. this summer has been a mess of mesh bodysuits, 2008 rapper tees cut into crop tops, silver Doc Martens, and ED [...]

Spring Wedges

Published on 03.18.11

While they may very likely be lesser versions of Jeffrey Campbell wedges or some equivalent mid-market lovelies, these will do just fine. I have a twisted fix with Aldo – I need to aimlessly surf their clearance and new collections displayed on their website. Far too often. Why? Because I end up falling upon footwear [...]

Rachel Roy – KIMI Shoe

Published on 02.14.11

Studded heel. Sparkles. Red. Platform. It’s all the essence of a Loubou but without the price tag and tagged with New York vs. Paris. While no French accent attached, these Rachel Roy shoes have me surprised – I was drawn when popping into my nearest Nine West (well, maybe not the nearest – more like [...]

MIUCCIA Prada’s Wavey Eyes

Published on 02.05.11

Spotted in Flare, Miuccia Prada sunglasses are an asymmetrical frenzy of waves. Dramatic yet near comical at the same time. Makes me want to make waves – et tu?

Rachel Bilson wears clogs, would you?

Published on 03.17.10

We don’t remember when clogs were cool in the 1990s/early 2000s (and we gladly admit it) because we like to believe that clogs were never in fashion. But unfortunately the ugly shoe known as the clog is making a comeback this spring/summer. I actually died a little inside when Rachel Bilson was spotted wearing the [...]

Trend alert: Slashed/skin-revealing leggings

Published on 01.13.10

Yesterday we gave Rihanna a thumbs up for her black leggings with side web-like slashes. Admittedly I’m not the biggest fan of leggings, basically because they’re not pants and shouldn’t be worn as such, and leggings/stirrup leggings had their hey-day in the early 1990s. I remember the mid 1990s – well kind of – I [...]

LOUIS VUITTON MONOGRAM RABBIT EARS DEFINE “MISSING THE POINT”

Published on 08.22.09

There are certain trendy pieces each season that are the visual equivalent of nails on a chalkboard to me, and the Louis Vuitton rabbit ears we’ve seen smattered all over Madonna and Russian Vogue are onesuch item. Back in June we were treated to the ears on Natalia’s cover (Below Left) and inside (Below Right), [...]

DID ANYONE WATCH “THE FASHION SHOW” FINALE ON BRAVO TONIGHT?

Published on 07.24.09

Any night I’m at home, between the hours of 10pm and 2am, I will watch any- any- reality show. Whether it’s “hard hitting” (Deadliest Catch, Locked Up Abroad), trashy (Daisy Of Love, Tool Academy), downright sad/boring (Groomer Has It season 2, even season 1 spinoff Beverly Hills Groomer) or fashion-related (Make Me A Supermodel, Project [...]
