I ran into bloggers Audrey Kitching and Stella Rose during NYFW. Audrey’s wearing H&M and Top Shop and Stella is wearing a suit by SENA NYC with vintage. Definitely a slight cartoonish vibe happening –but not in a bad way. They also have quite the floral/pink/orange thing going. Both super cute but I would ix-nay the black gloves.
Last night the Hole Gallery had an opening for Friends With You gallery show. I guess your Friends are everywhere lately in the city! I personally love the massive installation by the Highline, but during rain (like last night) you can always dip into The Hole to see their work inside –like these 2 did.
This winter has been so much colder than normal that it’s gotten alot of people feeling a bit dreary. Which is why it’s important to remember the psychological effects of color. And that bright colors like this hot pink can jolt you a bit – hopefully in a good way!
Okay, I’m the first to admit I know next to nothing about anime fashion/culture. But she made me think of a Japanese Lolita or anime girl. If you’re more well versed than I am please feel free to help me out with the cultural reference! But I’m loving the florals and ruffles as well as her makeup!
This photo reminds me of a book I had as a kid that was illustrations of different people split into thirds so you could flip through it and mix it up: put the ladies high heels with a fat man’s middle and a little girl’s face. The top half and bottom half here are completely incongruous. He also looks like he could kick your a** if you gave him a critique…so I’m not going to do that! I actually think the red skirt is kind of interesting and I’m totally going to steal how he styled his t-shirt with the safety pins! I just might not wear this as an ensemble…but that’s just me!
UPDATE: in addition to being a fashion rebel, I was just informed by a reader that the man in the photo is Malcolm Harris who is the founder of The One Dress Project whose mission is mission is to support global organizations that enhance and protect women’s rights, safety, health and well-being. Most excellent.
I normally don’t get too critical of the looks I post because, let’s face it: I picked them because I liked them, not because I didn’t. But I always end up shooting more than I post and there are always the ones that I love at first…but then am not sure about. Kind of like impulse shopping. What I like about this one is the kimono style dress, the glasses, the wedge platforms and the print-with-print of bag and dress. What I’m less sure about is the ruffled dress underneath that makes the top piece feel more like a fancy bathrobe, the actual prints of both pieces and I’m questioning whether the shoes are too heavy for the look. They do tie in nicely with the glasses and her hair color…other than the roots which also aren’t working for me. Still I am posting the photo because I’m wondering what you all think!
Shorter skirt lengths haven’t disappeared yet, and I don’t think they will in entirety. These lengths look fresher with fitted waists and fuller skirts like these two. Kristin Cavallari, on the right, is wearing Zac Posen and both of these girls kept the make up light and the jewelry to a minimum, managing to look sweet –not saccharine.
When I review all the photos I take during fashion week of the attendees I can’t help but see trends emerging. Here we have feminine tops paired with high-waisted black shorts. One with black heels and the other with men’s style lace ups. It’s a fresh and pretty look that is also neat without being too ladylike IMO.
