The Latest Fashion Trend

The fashion folk started a trend last spring that continues to spark the imagination of trend-setting women worldwide. Feathers! Feathers are fabulous.

Apparel Trade Shows Las Vegas: A Round-Up

I headed to Vegas for my very first MAGIC Convention and FN Platform Shoe Show. Anyone who is anyone in fashion or a related field was either exhibiting, buying, or blogging.  While MAGIC is the hub of the convention, the adjacent trade shows comprised of apparel, footwear, accessories, and social media resources as well.

The Venice Biennale

  For hundreds of years, writers and travelers have marveled at the beauty of Venice and sung the praises of the city of wonder. If ever a city has been the quintessential example of beauty and grace, love and magical pleasures, that city is Venice. Venice, only approached by sea, emerges before your eyes with domes and pinnacles and towers on the horizon.

Florence Day

  When in Florence. As anybody who has been to Florence and its environs can attest, it is one of the most magnificent places on earth.  I studied Art History in Florence during my Junior Year Abroad program in college, and I will never forget the incredible memories of studying Art, speaking Italian, traveling all over, and indulging in the incredible culture.

Europe on the brain

  Travel tip of the day: Pack light. Go far.  I have a confession to make. I want it all. Next week, I am headed to the centers of the fashion universe: Italy and France. More specifically, Montecatini, and then onto Paris. I want to travel light, but I also want it to appear that I have brought 8 suitcases with me, and that I have endless wardrobe choices.

Amy Winehouse Rest in Peace

  Amy Winehouse.  A legendary vocalist. A fashionista.  A lost soul, lost way too young. At the tender age of 27, she will be remembered not only for her incredible contributions to music, but her signature crazy style. Throughout her years, she was an inspiration to many designers, editors, and stylists.  She was once Karl Lagerfeld’s muse for one of his upcoming collections. Known for her towering black beehive hairdo, Cleopatra-style black eyeliner and tattoos, here is a sampling of some of her most infamous looks from Vogue to the Chanel runway. RIP Amy Winehouse.
