Recently I gave into a request to help a friend who admits to being so fashionably challenged that her daughter was afraid to have her be the only one there when she started looking for her prom dress.
The first though that went through my head was “how old is my friend to have a teenage daughter?” Second, “am I that old that I have friends with teenage children?” Yikes. Well with age there is fashion wisdom and the realization that I could go through the entire prom shopping experience vicariously through my friend’s daughter.
I look at proms as the teen version of weddings. A whole lot of fuss, primping, pampering and dressing up without restrictions on your attire. You can wear white, or ruffle garments in bright colors, you can even wear rompers on prom night! The options are endless, but I decided to share prom looks that aren’t very traditional, allowing those young ladies to wear these garments or accessories again and not letting it be a one night thing.
My obsession with fashion, as I know it, started with glossy pages, and if I had my way I would be sleeping on the magazine collection I once owned. No joke. Before there were e-magazines, online editorial destination or digital versions of our monthly fashion obsessions I had subscriptions to Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, W magazine, Vogue, UK Vogue, UK Elle for almost ten years. A little over 800 hundred magazines, could of made a good base for bed, but having my magazines be 800 hundred reasons for some sleepless nights I just couldn’t do.

If you could walk on rose petals or pearls which one would you chose? Rose petals are much easier for royalty to show their regal strut, but if walking on pearls made that walk much more majestic, imperial, you’ll happily keep those petals on the stems, and glide in on some pearly soles.

It’s an early start to my Thursday morning as I write this. I’ve just finished one project only to start another right after this post hasn’t been sent. For those who don’t know, I’m back in school putting my sexy eyeglasses to good use, but in less than a month since the semester started I’ve been slammed with so many papers to write and projects to hand in, I’ve had barely any time to get my RomeoStyling on. Ohh and let’s not forget it’s still a month of fashion weeks! I write this during my hour-long break that’s being put to good use. I’m watching my new guilty pleasure, The Walking Dead, eating (of course), and also browsing my favorite fashion websites to tickle my senses.
Somehow I ended up looking at a short film I viewed last year from Marco Brambilla on Nowness.com. Commissioned by Ferrari, the 3D kaleidoscopic video RPM, debuted at Art Basel two years ago. New York based artist, Brambilla did share the method he used to create such a magnetic film, but right now all I see are pretty psychedelic prints every time I hit the pause button. Go on you try!
The severed head on the silver platter doesn’t bother me. Girl cutting her long red hair and naked doesn’t bother me. The model holding an object that looks like a brain doesn’t even phrase me. What I’m having trouble with is the jewelry feathered in Bjorg’s lookbook didn’t give me a bigger selection pieces to gasp at. (I am so greedy with food and fashion)
Imagine the lyrics to Carrie Underwood’s song “ Good Girl ” paired with an original score from composer Hans Zimmer as the soundtrack to Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection! It would be the halo to complete the presentation. This collection must be what Sarah Burton would want the ladies of the church to wear if they ever get promoted beyond nunhood.Continue reading “The Church of Alexander McQueen” »
Should it be the classic Chanel jacket, the quilted handbag? Maybe it’s Chanel perfume/cologne or all of the above!
To call any one of those a rite of passage from the legendary fashion house just doesn’t have the same effect now that it did about a decade ago. To own a piece of Chanel then was a sign of success and wealth. You may have inherited your bag as a family heirloom, and you cherished it by taking it out on only special occasions.
For every man, woman, child, grandmother and Kanye West there is Chanel. Last year Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld joined forces to create a project titled “The Little Black Jacket.” Mr. Largerfeld was photographer who snapped 100 different musicians, actors, designers, models, and stylists all wearing Chanel’s iconic black jacket styled differently on every single person. The fashion project resulted in a video, a world touring exhibition, and a coffee table book.
When I’m away, my Instagramming fingers will play. Since I’ve been working on other projects, trying to hustle, mobile blogging has been my way of life for the past few weeks. So when I’m M.I.A on RomeoStyle.com, the photos below shows what MsRStyle has been up to.
What’s beyond the dirty white line? 2013 in NYC, of course.
The Coveteur perfected it, making the goodies within the closets’ of fashion and pop culture most influential names look like works of art that belongs on the walls, on bookshelves or display cases within the home. It would make sense since fashion designers, are artists whose works are displayed on human bodies instead of on coffee tables. Continue reading “Fashion For Display Purposes” »
