ART IN ARCHITECTURE: THE SENSO DELILAH BOOTIE

Published on 03.14.12

I love a stiletto as much as the next long-legged footwear masochist, but be it my busy schedule or vigorous bitch-walk, skinny-heel taps are as good as DONE within mere hours of hitting the pavement. As any girl with a clue knows, there is nothing worse than stepping into a marble-tiled foyer only to be […]

IMPULSE BUY: SUNO CARDIGAN + VPL SHORTS VIA STEL’S

Published on 02.17.12

Stel’s in Boston (slash on the internet) always has an influx of classic-yet-off pieces by labels like Assembly and Jeunesse. I popped in yesterday for my standard weekly 2-hour hangout (and top secret future project brainstorm) and couldn’t help but combine a couple things from the latest shipment with the signature jank I was already […]

WRAPPED ATTENTION: BERNHARD WILLHELM MINIDRESS AT SEVENNEWYORK.COM

Published on 02.14.12

I can admit that easter-egg-colored dumpy drape with an unexpected patch of skin (or an underlayer) peeking through sounds highly questionable, but if anyone can consistently pull off the questionable it is Bernhard Willhelm. I’ve collected several of his past pieces myself by this point, and their motifs are Dune, futurist Rasta and lopsided scarecrow, […]

SPACE CADET: MOON SPOON SALOON PLATFORM SNEAKERS FROM SEVENNEWYORK.COM

Published on 02.13.12

Stilettos… well, I won’t even, because in more than 90% of cases I look at them and I just imagine twisted feet, bad patent leather, and the trash-tacular “CLICK CLICK” of nails on marble floors because you KNOW those heel taps come off after about two wears. Giant wedges and thicker heels have reigned supreme […]

CAN’T SMELL FEAR (BUT IF YOU COULD, IT WOULD SMELL LIKE AXE)

Published on 02.12.12

I’m almost embarrassed fluffing Six Scents any more than I already have, but in the spirit of Seven Days of Seven New York (what day are we on now? I could keep going forever with all the cool things on their site) I’ll set my pride and dignity aside and recommend this Juun J x […]

ABSOLUTE ZERO: GROUND ZERO TRANSFORMER TEE FROM SEVENNEWYORK.COM

Published on 02.11.12

Day three of the SEVEN DAYS OF SEVEN: divine geometry. From label-to-watch Ground Zero, we can’t get enough of this simple statement tee, with its futuristic 90’s cartoon graphics and candy-necklace hues- with quilted sleeves that further encourage your inner Power Ranger. This is the type of top that moms hate because their 8-year-old won’t […]

SPACE CASE: THE “JUUN J” DUFFEL FROM CHRIS & TIBOR AT SEVENNEWYORK.COM

Published on 02.10.12

Commence day two of our SEVEN DAYS OF SEVEN online store feature, and I felt it was appropriate to give our male readers something other than eye candy. Having seen this combination duffel/backpack in person (and been thisclose to purchasing it on multiple occasions), I will say that the photos do the fabric a disservice. […]

A BIT OF A STRETCH: MARK FAST BODYSUIT FROM SEVENNEWYORK.COM

Published on 02.09.12

As promised, the first installment of our SEVEN DAYS OF SEVEN! Knitwear junkies, behold the (unforgiving) versatility of Canadian designer Mark Fast, whose work is “formed onto the body as he knits,” according to his site. A lover of extremes, I either lean towards heavily draped layers or skintight “clothed nudity,” and a piece like […]
