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.

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. Read More
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). Read More
Working till 8pm at a vintage store in the Village, I stayed dressed up all day and went straight from work to Fashion's Night Out festivities. I don't normally stress about bringing the fashion fun, but I knew people would be dressed to the nines and I wanted to find a middle ground. I probably went through at least 3 outfit changes the night before, trying to take themes, weather, and shoe comfort into consideration. I finally ended up with a look that felt comfortable enough for work and stylish enough to go out and about. Read More
Now available nationwide, Fashion’s Night Out has created a collection of items that includes printed FNO Tees for both men and women, stylish, multi-colored printed T-shirts, cute, everyday kind of totes, and even unisex baseball caps. The best thing about these items though? Forty percent of all proceeds from the FNO collection will go to benefit the NYC Aids Fund. Now those are some T-shirts and accessories I can definitely get behind. I'm especially digging the tote with the brown handles. Read More
Watch models Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmerman awkwardly dance to Pitbull's "I Know You Want Me" dressed head to toe in Lanvin's F/W 2011-2012 collection. This video is amazing on so many levels. The clothes are gorgeous, but I'm really kind of excited to see Karen Elson, one of my favorite models and overall fabulous redheads, shaking her groove thang. Somehow this song reminds me of my attempt to dance hip hop at junior high dances so long ago. I'm glad to know even models look semi awkward dancing to these kind of rump shaker songs. Read More
This year, September 8th, Fashion’s Night Out will be celebrated by over 1,000 stores in New York City alone, along with a crazy amount of stores in over 250 cities across the U.S., joining in with the 18 total countries celebrating around the world! Whoa. When you think about it, that’s actually pretty amazing and seems kind of exciting from an economic standpoint. As the actual night approaches, more and more fantastic sounding events keep popping up here in NYC and in cities across the U.S. Living in New York, I must admit, I'm a little overwhelmed...

While the world fussed over Kim Kardashian's three wedding gowns and Kate Moss' glamorous Galliano dress (anyone else surprised he still has any friends after this?), I'm sitting here swooning over Sofia Coppola's gorgeous, refreshingly not white, lavender dress that she wore to wed Phoenix's Thomas Mars last Saturday, August 27th. The dress was simple and sweet, just like the director herself, with layers of chiffon all along the bottom. Read More
Over time Band of Outsiders have created some of my favorite campaign shots simply because they've somehow managed to make their well-known models look like randomly stylish people who happened to be caught on film. Past campaign stars include Jason Schwartzman, Kirsten Dunst, and Andrew Garfield, whose photos all turned out charmingly cinematic. Read More
When you think of "cat fashion," you might think of cats in costumes or at least that's what google is giving me, but when I think "cat fashion," I think of these fantastically adorable Charlotte Olympia shoes. They are so ridiculously cute that I pulled a Rachel Zoe when I saw them and muttered something along the lines of, "ohmygosh, I die."
I found the red wedge version and oh look, it's on sale for only (ONLY?!) $895 at Bergdorf Goodman! Ok, so these beauties are a little (a lot) out of my price range, but at least they're super cute to look at. Read More
