Of course I'm a fan of the collections, but during Fashion Week, I'd say the real action is on the streets. Hordes of stylish attendees coming and going to shows line the sidewalks to Lincoln Center in one unique look after another. Actors, bloggers, models, editors, and even photographers themselves all put on a fashion show of their very own that no one can resist.  Olivia Palermo Hanneli. A fellow street style photographer. Miss Jay.

When I was young, my mother told me about my suffragist grandmother Edna (that's her in the photo). “She did important work so women can vote today,” my mother said. I took the story to heart. I couldn’t wait until the subject of women’s suffrage was raised in school. I imagined raising my hand, standing up in front of my classmates, and waxing lyrically about my grandma. Nothing happened through the sixth grade. Or the seventh.

                    To me, feminism is an all-encompassing word. It’s about inclusion. But it seems not everyone agrees. In a piece on The Christian Post’s website, Sarah Hamaker declares that there’s a new feminist out there. One who “embraces Christianity” and has “a calling in politics.” It’s no surprise that she references Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin as the models for this movement. Now, I (along with many others) never thought Christian women couldn’t be feminists.

Craft vendors, food galore, free demos, and a 70 foot fire-breathing dragon! You'll find all these and much, much more at the World Maker Faire, taking place this Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY.

This was only my second time ever seeing a show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week so the giddiness, excitement, and newness of everything was definitely still there. Last season, I was lucky enough to see ADAM, but this season, I was beyond excited to see the always elegant Carolina Herrera. Thankfully the show was running a bit late because there was just so much to take in...the lights, the atmosphere, the photographers, the stylish attendees..like oh..I dunno..ANNA freaking WINTOUR. Now we all know BUST is my favorite magazine, but I do enjoy a Vogue every now and then.

If you're looking for new blogs to read or just want some stylish inspiration from bloggers you already love, check out some of these street style pictures from "A Very Stylish Picnic" aka the lovely blogger meetup I attended in Central Park last Saturday. I was pretty excited to meet some of my favorite bloggers and to hang with fellow-lovers of vintage and style. We all came together for a pre-Fashion Week celebration and ate, drank, took lots of pictures, and were serenaded by boys in speedos (wait..what?..yep, it's true).

  A little indie film that was born in Ithaca, NY has been getting lots of attention lately.  It began as a senior thesis assignment for four college students, and has turned into what they hope will be a bridge into the film industry.  Several months ago, Ithaca College film students Christina Bryant, Allie Taylor, Ayshea Khan, and Kelly Paul made “Jemila’s Tale.”  They used local actors, funding from their IndieGoGo campaign, and help from friends as they hand-painted sets and worked tirelessly to produce the film.

If you're old enough to remember the SNL skit "Delicious Dish," I've got some exciting news for you: Ben & Jerry's is releasing a new flavor, called "Shweddy Balls", based on the sketch with Alec Baldwin. What's the ice cream made of? In this imagining of the taste of Alec Baldwin's Shweddy Balls, it features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered rum and milk chocoloate malt balls.
