Back in the Mix

It may be the beginning of August, but it’s nearing the end of the summer and whether you’re going back to school, or work (do we ever get time off) September blesses us with the “back to business” mentality. 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. Of course, there’s a bit of fashion links just because…

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!

“Hide Me” Sweat Said “Hide Me.”

romeostyle tipster 042113

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.  Continue reading ““Hide Me” Sweat Said “Hide Me.”” »

The Church of Alexander McQueen

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” »

An Instagramful Day

My Fashionable Way of Blending In.

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.” »

Fringe All Night Long Starring Sooyeon Lee

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.
