There's style everywhere you look in New York City, from walking around Soho and drinking on the Lower East Side to shopping in Williamsburg and eating in Queens, which is all the different places I found these stylish gals. NYC definitely carries a stylish crowd and that's one of my favorite things about this city. From dressing up to dressing down, there's always something different in the mix. Read More

While looking at images from the Royal Wedding it was not Kate’s beautiful dress, nor the Prince’s charming smile that I noticed. No, it was the unique sculpture atop Princess Beatrice’s head that left a real impression on me. It's the most interesting hat I've ever seen, and I applaud the girl brave enough to wear it.

There are awesome new fashion, design and food blogs every day. It’s hard to keep up quite honestly! Whenever I find a new blog I adore, I just want to share it with the world so I’ve decided to start a “blog of the week.” Most will probably be of the fashion variety, but there are tons of great general design and food blogs to showcase as well (evidenced by all the awesome food bloggers in this month’s issue).
The first “blog of the week” is my current fashion obsession, Elsa Billgren for Swedish Elle Magazine. Read More

Only my second fashion show to date, the 2011 BFA Parsons Fashion Show was certainly an exciting one! This is a show that has previously help launch the careers of designers such as Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler at one of the most renowned fashion schools in the world. Other designer alums include Anna Sui, Narciso Rodriguez, Peter Som, and host/speaker of the event, Reed Krakoff.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend Parsons The New School For Design's BFA Fashion Show where I saw fashion galore! A more detailed post about some of the designers featured will soon be coming up, but for now, enjoy some of the super stylish audience members who attended.

I previously blogged about the opening of the Alexander McQueen exhibit and the fashion extravaganza that is the Met Gala, but the exhibit itself deserves an entry all its own. There are people who are undeservingly called “genius” and “true artist” once they’ve died, but Alexander McQueen was not one of them. From day one, McQueen was a breath of fresh air in the fashion industry, one for the books I’d say. Since his death in 2010, he’s become a tragic, iconic figure of fashion whose mark on the world is obviously still felt. Read More
