My obsession with the color blue, comes out in more ways than I realized.
Back in the Mix

I personally love it, mostly for the Fall fashion! This week’s roundup has a great mix of workwear, back to school, and a few tidbits about your professional career.

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.

When you’re a slave to fashion, if there is a will you’ll find a way. Just so happens I’ve found several in order to keep my nickname Ms. Cheeky and avoid being called Ms. Sweaty Checks. I’m a sweater, through the pores that is. It’s a sweating problem that I’ve suffered from most of my life, which makes me an expert on this topic. Through trial and damp error, I’ve figured out which garments to wear during certain seasons of the year, from the fabrics that are sweat friendly to undergarments which prevents those embarrassing moments from happening.

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.

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.
I’ve been busy surrounding myself with shoe-link gangs from Kathryn Amberleigh Continue reading “An Instagramful Day” »
This past week has been a crazy one which started with a very short-lived adventure that has to be shared with you’ll, in due time, but because of that event plus others that took place in the past few days, all I can do is add them to the unusual, eccentric, interesting, odd one in, collage I call my life.
There were times I wanted to hide underneath a black umbrella and blend in with everyone else, while walking in the rain, but my mind wondered as to what would be my blend-in outfit? Instead of being practical, this pretty number popped into my head.
Yup when it’s cold and raining in New York City, Maison Martin Margiela Couture is what I want to wear, face piece and lace pants included. Ohh I didn’t stop there. Continue reading “My Fashionable Way of Blending In.” »
Filmmaker and photographer, Matthew Donaldson teamed up with former model now Korean table tennis champion, Sooyeon Lee to create this slow-mo movie paying homage to the sport. Stylist Katie Shillingford and designer Geraldine Chevrolet helped create fringed tights, gloves and a hat, to accompany pieces from Christopher Kane, Mark Fast, Jil Sander and Versace featured in the video.
Now I’ve played the sport and won several times in the past, but next time I should have something with fringe details close by. All that fabric moving around while hitting the ball would be perfect distractions helping to beat my opponent.
