The thing that keeps fashion interesting is that it’s a never-ending project. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to strive for perfection anyway. Whether it be following your favorite fashion icons, saying no to the trends, or breaking cliches, style can always be stepped up even when we simplify our wardrobes. This week we have a solid round up of style related posts, so be sure to check them all out!
For the love of fashion, we will take full advantage of different seasons each year, and the new fashion pieces we have to acquire.
With at least four major weather seasons around the world, and seven in the fashion world (new inductees are resort, pre-fall and pre-spring,) we have more than enough reasons to get that giddy happy feeling when new garments and accessories touch our bodies.

This belted public service announcement is one that focuses on the waist of my fellow fashion sisters, and fellas it may help to answer why some of your belts have gone missing.
As of late, many retail shops are selling us a bigger variety of belts than we know what to do with, yet the selection these shops have to offer cannot compare to sturdy and simply cool buckled-numbers hanging in the men’s section. Less is more, when you want a long tan, or black leather belt that isn’t too thin or too wide.
Depending on the woman or women in your life, may just be the secret belt thieves borrowers that just never returns what doesn’t belong to them. Don’t go asking for your belt(s) back because we’ll find someway to may you feel guilty about asking us to return your property. 10 lashes
Then you have those women who buys their own belts from the men’s department like the bosses they are. It wouldn’t be wise to go borrowing from her without asking. Again, the invading of her personal space, blah blah blah, and the same accessory in question will be used against you. 20 lashes or until her arm gets tired.
For being so wise and understanding, know this gentlemen, your belts are something else we’re found hanging in the closets that have caught our eyes and there is nothing you can or should do about it.
I’ve been busy working with my partners setting up a business that I cannot wait to share with you’ll next month, but since we have a deadline to meet, it’s crunch time and we’re using our supernatural powers to get things rolling in time for our launch date!
From studying literature, and law to becoming a journalist, and now Vogue China Editor-in-Chief, Ms. Angelica Cheung is operating one of the biggest Vogue editions in the world since it’s launch in 2005. She is an editor that focuses on the future of the Chinese designers who are struggling to make their mark among the top designers in the world. Cheung is also setting out to teach consumers who read Vogue China, that buying fashion just because of the high-end names is not truly expressing one’s character through clothes. A role model beyond the fashion boarders, Ms. Cheung you are on my list of ones to admire, and hopefully work with in the future!
I’ve been searching for another pixelated series of photos like the 8-bit illustrations project I shared about two years ago. Jherin Miller, a graphic designer and creator of “Where the sun sleeps,” combined 80′s graphics and old-fashion photography to create these cool photographs. Thank you Miller for making these Polaroids looks as though they needed a couple more shakes.
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.

The battle for front row seating at fashion show, is it really worth it? I’ve sat in the front row at several fashion shows, and instead of me luxuriating in my prime fashion week real estate, I was to worried about not sitting like a proper lady or reaching out to touch the clothes on the runway while the model was doing her job. Yes I would be the one to not stay seated until the very end of the show.
So I’ve swapped one form of front row seating for another.
Live-streaming gives all of us the good seats at the fashion week shows and once one show is over, we can sit in the comfort of our homes, offices, coffee shops, etc and wait happily for other fashion week presentations to stream on whatever device we have handy at the time.
So enjoy the shows I’ve listed below, just click on the designer’s name to see what they will be dressing us in for the next cold and snowy season this city will see.
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.
