I never imagined the day would come that Jane Fonda would frighten the heck out of me while offering presents, but this short film featuring the feminist’s voice made it sound haunting to accept gifts of Prada.   Continue reading “Watchful Wednesday: “The Future of Flesh” for Prada” »

Born to be Styled

You know how it is, every season there’s something new to get into… new trends, new styles, keeping up appearances. As I get older, I notice how some things come cycle in and out, and how some things stay with us season after season. That biker jacket, that classic black and white ensemble, that perfect suit. It’s just a matter of finding that thing that resonates with you and your life year after year. We all have our fleeting musings, but what really strikes our fancy time after time? That’s what I call style.

Today is officially the last day of winter, and I am not jumping for joy.   We all know winter is still slapping our faces with its chilly ways, and will fight to the bitter end.   Waiting this one out isn’t going to work, therefore let’s watch a few fashion films that will offer some springtime incentives. Anything to get us out of our winter funk sooner than…. how many more weeks to go?

Stepping Up the Style

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!

Warby Parker Makes Things Clearer in Winter.

Warby Parker Winter Collection

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.   Continue reading “Warby Parker Makes Things Clearer in Winter.” »

He Belted Me and It Looked Good.

RomeoStyle he belted me and it looked good

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.

Watchful Wednesday: Editor-in-Chief Angelica Cheung

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!

Popping Some Pixels.

Jherin Miller pixels

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.

McQueen Said Pearls Are A Girl’s Best Friend.

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.

FASHION WEEK LIVE STREAMING F/W 13 Day 1

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.
