It’s a rap….on Fashion Week

2 Oct

This is what it's all about people, the superzoom pic of Anna Wintour from a gizzilion rows away.

So I had this whole plan about writing a rap about Fashion Week based on the lyrics of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song, but this is as far as I got…

So this is a story all about how

my life got flipped turned upside down….

I got a “job” fashion bloggin and my boss got busy,

She said, “You’re moving with the newbies to Lincoln Center, you hear!”

I whistled for a cab and when it came near,

The cabbie was fresh and he had ice in his ears

I thought “Hey it’s New York, this ain’t rare,

It’s Fashion Week baby and I’m front rowin’, yeah yeah!”

Could I be sent to Blogging prison for that? Eh, I’ll take my chances. I just wanted to do a quick bit but about some of the highlights of the week and some of the craziness I wore…There were a couple Rachel Zoe furry vest moments, and I would do them all again damnit!

Then comes the outfits. On a couple of occasions, some photogs outside Lincoln Centre took my pic. Who knows if it was for the best or worst dressed list…

This was my first day and everything except my bag and earrings came from H&M. I admit, I have a problem.

Taken by a newfound friend, Rick Weaver from Icon Americana. Club Monaco shorts and top, Lush jacket, inherited wool scarf and Guess pumps.

I was having a Rachel Zoe moment. I think. The vest I got from an ex-BF for moving to Alaska, Fergie shoes. Not sure where the rest is from…

This was one of my fave looks and I never got a full length pic. H&M leopard dress, rabbit fur and wool vest (on loan from my good friend Kim Martin Cotten). Necklace from previously mentioned Accessory to the Fact, the store my friend Collie owns.

On the last day of Fashion Week, I decided to go out with a bang….this may have been on of those days Coco Chanel was talking about when she said take off one thing before you left the house, but I went wearing all of it anyway. Ah, running before I can walk…….Guess jacket and shoes, H&M shoes and tights, INC top.

And that is my fashion week wrap up. I CANNOT wait till spring! Keep reading till then.

Bisous,

Dallin Chase Spring 2011 and the Anda and Masha Hat Launch

12 Sep

As I mentioned, editorial assisting the Fashion Pulse Daily blog has its perks. This is my first set of reviews, from this NY Fashion Week.  Dallin Chase and Anda and Masha, from Fashion Pulse Daily.

The Dallin Chase Spring 2011 Presentation

The theme was “anchored lightness” at the Dallin Chase Spring 2011 Presentation. The room was filled with lots of natural light and the models sported styled, beachy, wavy hair that suited the collection’s loose layers and ultra-feminine fabrics like silk, tulle, and lace. It was an interesting juxtaposition to then see the models sporting Penny Loafers, and yes, with actual pennies in them (old school!). When asked about the choice of footwear, designer Jason Cauchi said that because the collection was such a celebration of the classic separates — the cardigan, the maxi dress, the mini skirt – the Spring 2011 Dallin Chase woman would throw on these delicate pieces with her boyfriend’s shoes and let their flirty lightness do all the work.

Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr passed by to shop and support the designers.

The Anda and Masha by Selima Hat Launch

The energy at the Anda and Masha hat launch was like a party your hat-designer girlfriend would throw, where everyone came, drank, laughed louder than the music and played musical hats with the entire collection. With pork-pies, beanies and pageboys stacked on display, everyone tried, posed and snapped themselves in the various styles, gushing about the fit and the look. Most noticeable about the collection was the complete absence of color. Every hat was black. Longtime stylists-cum-designers Anda and Masha said they have long been in search of the perfect hat, and were inspired by Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithful. Each hat, they said, is exactly something they would wear. Gossip Girl starJessica Szohr attended the event and left with four creations herself. The actress, who is a long-time fan of the design duo, said the hats are perfect accessories for bouncing around New York, especially the beanies, which she lives in all winter.
