Trends in Fashion: Yoga suddenly becomes hot and ready to wear…

DSC_0366

In case you haven’t noticed it the new fashion apparel trend has a lot to do with Bikram Yoga or the art of practicing yoga. Never fond of arduous exercise or tight lycra outfits our curiosity got the better of us as we headed out last night to ‘Phat Buddha’ on the Upper West to […]

Fashionably late at Jill Stuart.

Jill Stuart is known for dressing the chic party girl; the one who wore that shiny little dress to the office Christmas party and got a tad drunk. So why was it that, other than the PR jet set (so they tell us…), this was not the crowd at Jill Stuart’s holiday party? The event […]

LA Fashion Week. Strutting the planks…a recap.

Jerell+Scott+Spring+2010+Collection+18b

LA Fashion week closed October 31st 2009. Even though that date gave license to some scantily clad holiday behavior  it also gave pause to how far the scene had finally had come and had yet to go. Then again this is LA and as much as it wants to rival the world Los Angelinos ultimately […]

Michelle Vale— Handbags That Are Oh, So Necessary

As a girl who recently gave up handbags for shoving my Metrocard and lip-gloss into my pocket, I figured that the Michelle Vale showing was going to be a tough sell. Don’t get me wrong, I have had a 16-year love affair with handbags, but even though I have been carrying them since I was […]

Scary Monsters and the little gems that follow you. Has anyone had a close look at Lilo and Donatella Versace lately? It’s a scene that lends itself well for a before and after plastic surgery disaster (except in this case there is no before picture which means you are left with the disaster picture). A […]

    Ever since economist George Taylor concocted the Hemline Index in 1926 there has been much debate over skirt lengths reflecting the state of the economy. Taylor’s theory suggests that hemlines rise when financial markets are good and can rapidly fall when they are poor. Apply this theory to the S/S 2010 collections and […]

Defyance-21

This past Wednesday night we were treated to a tantalizing event at Cain that featured the introduction of Defyance, a fashion forward fashion line and the stunning Tina Thompson who helped choreograph the dance routine that showcased the label’s durability, sleekness and it’s cutting fit.

Nico and Adrian recently presented their spring 2010 collection and with sartorial elegance we were treated to high camp, mock humor, miniature dogs,  tutu dresses, muscle bound boys who spend conscious hours doing sit ups, and the veneer of black gypsy scarves atop smoldering silver emblazoned eyes. By now a venerable favorite of the Scallywag […]
