In my previous entry, I chronicled the look I put together for the 2011 Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island. My outfit was just one of many and when I got to the event, there were so many fantastically dressed people that I didn't know which way to turn! I love how everyone was completely dressed to the nines. The men were dapper, the ladies were glamorous, and even a few adorable kids were dressed up. It made me glad that such an event even exists! Check out some of my favorite fabulous looks from this wonderfully jazzy event.. Read More
The Jazz-Age Lawn Party, a fabulous bi-annual, daytime jazz event on NYC's  Governors Island took place earlier in the summer and is currently taking place this weekend, August 20th and 21st. I was lucky enough to attend yesterday and I have to say the outfits were fantastic and the bow-tie clad boys made me swoon.

For some reason, I've always been infatuated with redheads. I feel like they command attention, stand out from a crowd and somehow make anything look glamorous. They add a pop of color to even the most boring ensembles! Red hair seems to offer or elicit a special air of confidence and I love that it's sort of different from the norm, especially certain bright colors, but it doesn't feel too crazy. When I did a little research, I found out that almost all my favorite, fabulous redheads were not actually born that way.

Of all the designers out there, Karl Lagerfeld is not exactly known for loving "the little people," but not only did he give us a collection for H&M in 2004, but lo and behold he's gone and created another well-priced line exclusively for Macy's now. “To me Macy’s is the perfect department store in the US where everybody can find what they’re looking for without ruining their budget," Lagerfeld said in a release, "That’s why I am happy to make this limited collection just for Macy’s.

One of my favorite people in NYC is Galadriel Masterson, fashion stylist, BUST contributor, and self proclaimed “cuntastic lezberry,” she knows it all and she isn’t afraid to tell you! Luckily for us, Galadriel has recently launched her new web series, “In Bed with Galadriel” where she’ll be interviewing various NY luminaries (in bed, natch) and getting all up in their faces.

Thanks to FRUiTS, the world can keep up with what the ladies of Harajuku, Tokyo are strutting in on a daily basis. The monthly street style magazine has been snapping shots since the mid 90s, and the August issue is filled with the usual volume of fresh and fearless fashion. These girls will wear whatever they want, whenever they want, and they don't mind if you do a double-take or two. Here are some of the looks featured in the current issue: Yo Nicki, this is what a real Harajuku Barbie looks like. With her Harajuku Ken. Read More
While watching Hallmark's I Love Lucy marathon in honor of Lucille Ball's 100th birthday yesterday, I found myself swooning over Lucy's outfits. Her ensembles are classic, of course, but many of the elements (sheer, lace, sweetheart necklines, polka dots, tea-length hems, etc.) seem to be particularly on-trend at the moment. So much so, that I easily could compile a look from several stores mimicking her signature looks. Read More
I’ve been a nail biter since I was a wee lass, so getting my nails done has always been out of the question. Plus, my nails are so small that I would probably have a panic attack trying to recreate the super-cute “Sweet Strawberry” manicure design featured in our current issue. Luckily, there’s a fantastic solution for fussy nail-biters like me - glue-on nails! We showcased some fabulous talons and decals (who wouldn’t want Tom Selleck’s face on their nails?) in the magazine, but that’s just a small taste of the world of artisan ready-made nails. Read More
For those of you who remember the day Frances Bean Cobain was born (like me), be prepared to feel a leeetle old. Lil’ FB is now lookin’ like a grown-ass woman, and in this photo shoot she did with former Dior Homme/YSL designer Hedi Slimane, she pretty much owns the camera. I know Kurt and Courtney are her parents and all, but it still freaks me out a little how much she looks like both of them. A whisper of the past in the face of the future. And hot damn, them are some good-lookin’ genes. Go to Hedi's site for the whole smoldering shoot. Read More
