I was so busy trying to get to the dress.  I must say that I do look "fabulous" in it, to say the least.  My mom ordered it for me to wear to my junior prom.  I am also getting ready to compete for Connecticut's Outstanding Teen in June and I just used the dress to take a picture wearing my sash and crown.  We will definitely be ordering again!"

Saturday Do: Something That Scares You
Thursday April 26, 2012 No comments yet


Saturday Do: Do Something That Scares You


Saturday Do: You dream and you dream but when the moment comes to actually “doing,” you become scared; tip-toeing back into your zone of comfort. This Saturday’s Do is a bit different. Do something that scares you.

Try a new food

celebrity style

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to live in a new city, planning it down to the spots you’ll frequent in that new city. Maybe you’ve always wanted to immerse yourself in a new hobby or maybe you’ve been (im)patiently waiting and hoping for love to come your way. It’s time to take a leap for yourself. When that moment arrives, a physical and emotional elevation occurs and all of a sudden you can’t breathe.

Write a letter to a ‘long lost’ someone


celebrity style

So move to that new city, publish that book, write that letter, try a new food. On a regular basis, do the things that scare you. On the other side of that scary moment, you’ll find a fulfilling life.

Make that move

Eye-Opener: Danielle Butzon


Today’s eye-opener segment comes from our very own, Danielle Butzon. Her favorite part of the day? Seeing the gorgeous New York City skyline, of course.

NYC Skyline

When I come into the city every morning, seeing the sun rise over the NYC skyline inspires me. Even though it is the smallest part of my day, it's my favorite and it lets me know my day will be good.

Lenka


Lenka is an Australian singer/songwriter. It wasn't until recently that I discovered her music and realized she writes a lot like me. I am an aspiring singer/songwriter as well and Lenka inspires me to express how I am feeling through my music.

Love


Everything about love inspires me. From the first time you meet a person, to the butterflies you get , all the way to the heart wrenching break ups. That is where most of my inspiration comes from when I write. I feel like love is a crucial part of life and without it, life would be boring and meaningless.

Eye Openers: Brie Schmidt


This week’s Eye Opener segment comes to us courtesy of our lovely Brie Schmidt. We hope Brie’s list inspires you in some way. It sure inspired us!

1) Vincent Van Gogh

I really enjoy modern art, and one of my favorite artists is the well known, Vincent Van Gogh. I've seen a good number of Van Gogh's paintings in Amsterdam, Paris, London, New York, Philly, and Salt Lake City and feel truly blessed to be able to experience seeing all the various collections made by this talented man. From self portraits, to abstract paintings of landscapes and flowers, he always stuck with his personal art style. The vision of the unique colors and fine detailing in his work is so fascinating and gives me a lot of appreciation for art, colors, expressionism, as well as ideas, insight and inspiration with colors and the choices I make with things in my life from home decor to fashion choices.

celebrity style

2) Sunglasses

Sunglasses are my must have and favorite accessory. They simply make a bold statement to your everyday outfit and are even better on makeup less days!

celebrity style

3) Nicole Richie

I've always adored Nicole Richie's evolving style since she was infamously known as the wild, party girl on her former reality series, The Simple Life. The fact that the chameleon is never afraid to experiment with new trends, blending various of fashion pieces, accessories, hair color, and footwear, yet manages to feel comfortable is such an inspiration. She may be a true boho chic at heart, being spotted in a lot of her own designer pieces by her fashion lines, Winter Kate & House of Harlow 1960, however they aren't the only things she has in her wardrobe. She blends the boho-inspired pieces with some amazing edgy, rocker chic clothing & accessories, and occassionaly sports the old hollywood glamour look on the red carpet. Nicole's aesthetic and unique style has a strong influence on my daily personal style and inspired me to not just stick to one trend, but have fun and mix things up, yet still be comfortable & look effortlessly stylish!

Hey Sugar
Tuesday April 24, 2012 No comments yet


Hey, Sugar!


Break out that jar or industrial size sugar stash you’ve been stowing away in your cabinet. This granulated sweetener is good for more than just baking. A little bit can actually make your skin glow. Who says sugar isn’t good for you?!

Smooth your kisser

celebrity style

Blend a little jojoba or olive oil with caster sugar (also called superfine sugar; you can also make this by putting regular granulated sugar in the food processor for a minute) and a touch of peppermint or vanilla extract, if you like. Place some of the paste on your lips, massage and lick off. Yum!

Make a body scrub

celebrity style

Sugar makes for a splendid exfoliating agent for body scrubs. You can make a super simple one by mixing sugar with oil (canola, almond, jojoba, or olive all work well) to create a loose paste. Add some essential oil or vanilla extract if you like fragrance. Gently rub on your skin and then rinse off in the shower.

Extend your lipstick

celebrity style

Sprinkle a bit of sugar atop freshly applied lipstick, let it sit, then lick it off. This works to set the lipstick and will extend the application.

Lillian Bassman Exhibit

Lillian Bassman Exhibit


celebrity style

Photography legend Lillian Bassman, who passed away this past February at the age of 94 once said, "the same techniques in Photoshop as I did in the darkroom," dismisses both romantic notions of film's purity and digital fantasies of amazingly-manipulated images. One look at her black and white photography and you’re absolutely hooked. The former Harper's Bazaar art director explained the shift in her career as a simple tool upgrade, "the palette has changed, the end result is the same."

celebrity style

Bassman’s work will be on exhibit throughout May 26th at the Staley-Wise Gallery. The exhibit–featuring experimental reprints of her early work from the 1940s–is based on the late photographer’s book, Lillian Bassman: Lingerie.

Get your Prom On


Prom is fast approaching and we know you’ve probably (and rightfully so) splurged on your prom dress and accessories. There’s no need to break the bank for your hair and makeup, ladies. We selected some hair and makeup looks straight from this season’s runways that are incredibly glamorous and Prom friendly. Which one will you try?

The Look: Braided goddess at Valentino

Why it's perfect:t It allows people with long hair to have the feeling of a textured, short hairstyle.

celebrity style

The Look: Doll lashes and messy texture at Louis Vuitton


Why it's perfect: This look takes a modern approach to classic femininity, Delicate skin mixed with heavy brows and lashes makes for a perfect prom look.

celebrity style

The Look: Jewel-toned smoke at Roberto Cavalli


Why it's perfect:Adding a healthy dose of color to a smokey eye is more unexpected and perfect for a sultry dress.

celebrity style

The Look: Geometric twists at Gucci


Why it’s perfect for prom: The hair is removed from the face; the style is clean, chic and has a contemporary feeling; it's less traditional, although still very classy and appropriate.

celebrity style


The Look: Punchy pouts at Jil Sander


Why it's perfect:Allowing bright, vibrant lips to stand on their own is a surefire way to make a statement.

Four lip trends to try this Spring

Four lip trends to try this Spring


Here at the office, there’s always plenty of lip talk. We’ve tried different shades of this season’s hottest colors, from matte, to shimmer, to glossy finishes. One thing we can tell you: don’t be afraid to jump into color. These are the four lip trends to try this Spring, regardless of your skin color. The key is finding your perfect shade.

Nudes

We love nudes because they give off a clean, natural look. It’s subtle and perfect for anyone.

celebrity style

Hot Pink
What’s not to love about hot pink? It instantly adds oomph to a monochromatic look. Sweep on and forget about it, toots.

celebrity style

Fiery Reds

Get into season’s hottest color by choosing a red with an orange undertone. We find it’s virtually impossible to have a hum drum day when your lips are fiery red. Why hello, energy booster.

celebrity style

Deep Purple


Deep purple brings on the drama. Luscious grape colors are absolutely irresistible. When you do opt for a plum lip, make sure and keep all your other makeup simple.

Record Store Day


This Saturday, we dare you to unglue yourself from Pandora and Spotify, for an hour or so and visit a record store. Although some have predicted a financial apocalypse on local music retailers due to online piracy, we say, ‘forget about it.’ Remember what it felt like to wander aimlessly through the aisles of a record store, flipping through records and reading all the song titles, then marching over to a music player to preview the songs? There’s a certain kind of magic that only record stores can bring. Rekindle that love this weekend and pick up a record or two.

Today, it’s Betty Dominguez’s turn to tell us what moves and inspires her. We hope these picks get you thinking about what inspires you.

The 1950's- I am really inspired by the fashion sense of the 50's, and the alluring effect of Marilyn Monroe. I try to incorporate these styles into my every day wear, and home decor. I love the cat shaped glasses, vintage Chanel bags and Bold Red lips. Which brings me to my inspiration.

celebrity style

Lipstick-I love Bright Bold colors!! All my other make up is minimal, a bright hue brightens my day, my mood and makes me feel awake! My favorite is a a Lavender Tint, I usually wear it around the office.


celebrity style

Modern Pop Art-I love Kaws, and Pop Art in general. My style is a mixture with pieces that are vintage twisted with modern day wear and art!. It describes my perosnality, a little reserve and classy, but living in a modern day fashion world.

NYC Metro Cuff


No self respecting New Yorker would ever admit to looking at a subway map. The truth is, we all peek at a map from time to time. Alas, there’s a stylish solution. The folks at Design Hype have shrunk down that helpful subway map and given it a fashionable new makeover. Made of stainless steel, the NYC Metro Cuff has the city's subway lines and streets embossed along the curve of the wrist. So whenever the reception bars start to dwindle on your phone when you’re underground, you’ll have your nifty cuff. Cartier has nothing on this one. Quite frankly, we think it's better than weaving your head under or over a person’s armpit to get a closer look at a map on the train wall.

Our very own Debra Edwards, who looks stunning in red lipstick, gave us her list of inspirational things. Jem and the Holograms? Yes, please!

Yves Saint Laurent
I look at this picture and see creativity and innovation of the late Yves Saint Laurent. He pushed the envelope of what women were supposed to wear and made fashion that much more fun and interesting. Hello female tuxedo suit and giant bow dress! Setting trends in every way he was also the first designer responsible for putting ethnic models in his runway shows, which as a little girl in Jamaica inspired me to be anything I wanted to be. He is without a doubt a motivation to be a fearless fashion representative on a daily basis.


celebrity style

Jem Jam
Jem was my favorite cartoon as a child. She and The Holograms were unlike anything I had ever seen before. They had that certain je ne sais quoi, but moreover were proof that it was perfectly ok to experiment with fashion, mixing textures and colors to create your own signature style and make statement through magnificent eye-catching ensembles. Jem also inspired leadership qualities and girl power receptivity that has stuck with me to this day.

celebrity style

Dapper diner party
Yes I love to eat ;) That being said, however, a picture of this nature conjures up more than just food and rather evokes a bigger and much more meaningful experience that takes careful thought to execute, and brings friends and family together. The décor just like the clothes we wear is at the center of it all, the bold printed tablecloths are the canvases on which the whole experience is built around. Candles and goblets add a pop of color to the décor which is complemented by stunning floral decorations only to be perfected by the beautiful settings. Similarly with clothing I like to use certain statement pieces and build stunning outfits around them.

Fashion Editorials: Softness
I love the fantasy factor of fashion editorials. There’s so much creativity making me want to jump right into the shot and be in the midst of it all. Its turn of the century style and the calmness of this photo inspires the more subtle side to my wardrobe. I look at this and just want to lie in a field of flowers, have a picnic, and simply be fabulous.

celebrity style

Bold:
This photo is a visual manual on looking great and being noticed. Bold Prints, bright colors, trendy silhouette, and terrific heels. It has everything I want at the moment from more prints in my closet to ombre hair. I’m obsessed with the peplums, and the high low skirt. This photo inspires me to take fashion risks and reminds me that bold can be way better!

celebrity style

Fashion Shows: Creative
I’m a creative person so I’m triggered by visuals. Fashion shows are styled so differently that it always makes me think about how I can interpret what I’ve seen on the runway to the sidewalk. The production of the shows are usually so grand, I feel like I’m in another world. The whole thing becomes such a fantasy I make it my mission to capture that feeling in my every day outfits.

Saturday Do: Dressed for Art


When we discovered that Jean-Phillipe Delhome’s “Dressed for Art,” was coming to a close this Saturday, we were a bit saddened, but it inspired this week's Saturday Do. If you haven’t already visited the FIAF Gallery to peep this collection of colorful fashion drawings and paintings, make a date to do so! Delhomme is regarded as one of the most delightful satirists in fashion. The multi-talented painter, writer, cultural blogger, and fashion illustrator, has been featured in renowned magazines such as Vogue, W, Vanity Fair, GQ, and The New Yorker. In this exhibition, he explores the relationship between fashion, contemporary art, and design and how they influence today’s pop culture.

Spring Inspiration Board

Spring Inspiration Board


Our stylist Jonah designed this beauty inspiration board for our upcoming spring cover shoot this morning. Part of the fun about working alongside Jonah is his endless vision. 

“I love the easy glamour and timeless sex appeal of these muses. The muses (Sharon Tate, Sophia Loren, Bridget Bardot, and Verna Lisi) embody an effortlessness in their beauty that I really love. They aren't trying to be sexy, it's innate. I mixed in modern fashion images that fit the aesthetic. I am imagining a Mad Hatter-esque pastel picnic, which is why I chose the teacups and silverware. I want the shoot to personify spring which is why I chose pastels, and added the outside element in the corner.”

Ottavio Missoni: Master of Color


Ottavio Missoni is synonymous with saturated color. To celebrate the him, the Italian Union organized an exhibition, “Ottavio Missoni: Master of Colors,” in Maribor, Slovenia. The show depicts Missoni as an artist, businessman, and athlete. His original 1948 tracksuit is on display, on a mannequin covered in Missoni fabric. Pattern plans, fabric swatches, and artworks that carry his vibrant aesthetic are also included. There are actual Missoni pieces, too — bright baubles, scarves, and bags, along with vases encased in his flashy knits.

Style Stalker: Over the knee socks
Tuesday April 10, 2012 No comments yet


Weekend Style: Over-the-knee Socks


One trend we’ve been spotting everywhere are over-the-knee socks. We’re not talking about sports inspired colorful socks; we’re referring to the socks that skim the thighs with feminine accents like lace patterns and prints. How to wear them: Pair with a mini skirt, scalloped shorts or dress. Keep the socks a solid color so as not to compete with your clothing’s pattern. Wear with your favorite pair of ankle booties, saddle shoes or wedges to complete your look. Balance out the short hemline of your dress, skirt or shorts with a loose fitting painter’s blouse. Here are some photos we snapped of ladies who sported the trend this weekend.

Diana: Glimpse of modern princess


Though Kate Middleton has been the apple of every magazine editor’s eye since joining the royal family, we thought it’d be fun to take a step back and explore Princess Diana’s fashion through a new exhibition at the Kensington Palace in London. The exhibition, “Diana: Glimpses of a modern princess,” was carefully curated for two years before opening to the public in late March. What can you expect? A little bit of fashion and a little bit of history. Twenty rooms have been refurnished with historical pieces and contemporary artwork. Visitors can walk around in rooms that have been covered with colorful wallpaper, designed by Julie Verhoeven, featuring Princess Diana in some of her signature looks. Get up close with beautiful gowns worn by Diana including pieces by Versace, David and Elizabeth Emanuel and Catherine Walker. Stay tuned for our photo diary of some of London’s most fashionable spots after our trip in May!

Raf Simons says hello to Dior


We thought all you fiery fashionistas might appreciate this bit of good news. Dior has finally found someone to replace John Galliano, after his firing last year. The fashion house’s artistic director position had been left unfilled for months, causing much speculation as to who would be chosen for the coveted position. It was announced yesterday that Raf Simons, formerly of Jill Sanders, was to fill Galliano’s shoes. We hear he was chosen because of his experience and because Dior wanted someone who was ‘low key.’ Simon’s first line is set to hit the haute couture runway shoe in July and Simons couldn’t be more delighted. Bravo, Simons, bravo!

Find of the day: Underwater Inks


We are such lovers that we find it hard to discriminate against any color. We'll wear white whenever we feel like it and red on “off seasons”.  So when we heard that avocado green and pistachio were one of Spring’s “it” colors, we ran with it. A recent discovery made us want to drape ourselves in green from head to toe. This series of underwater inks titled, “A due Colori,” by Italian artist Alberto Sereso made us appreciate color even more, especially when it takes on a galactic inspired life of its own.

Saturday Do: ‘Youthquake’ at FIT


In big cities like New York, the weekends are absolutely priceless. They are, without a doubt, a time of recuperation, brunch hopping, errand running, shopping, cleaning and the careless schlepping around town. So it’s was a no brainer that we’d start a ‘Saturday Do’ series, letting you know what you should and could do in the city, if you are so inclined and have a spare half hour or so. Time is gold and we’ve picked things we want to check out ourselves to share with you.

This week’s pick: ‘Youthquake’ exhibition at FIT. The exhibition celebrates 60s Mod and chronicles the impact of the youth culture during the 1960s, highlighting Twiggy and the hippie movement. This Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is the last day to peep the fashion exhibit, curated by FIT students, so don’t miss out!

Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations
Friday April 06, 2012 No comments yet


Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada


If you see one fashion exhibition this year, make sure it’s Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This stellar exhibition will be the focus of the upcoming Spring 2012 Costume Institute Exhibition taking place on May 7th. The actual exhibit will open to the public on May 10th and run through August 19th. The exhibition will explore the stark contrasts between both Italian designers from completely different eras.

celebrity style

The exhibition will feature 90 designs and 30 accessories by Schiaparelli who worked in Paris during the 1920s and by Miuccia Prada from the late 80s to present day. Schiaparelli’s most iconic pieces are the ‘Tear’ necklace, ‘Bug’ necklace and ‘Shoe’ hat, all of which were created during the Surrealist movement. Prada’s designs focus on fashion that is more reflective on Postmodernism. Her below-the-waist focus is symbolic of modernity and femininity. Either way, both women are fashion royalty and we agree that this exhibition merits a visit or two from every fashionista.

700 Spools of Thread: Keep it Together


In New York City, there’s a surprise in every corner. Yesterday during lunch, we discovered this performance art piece at Chashama, in the Garment District. The piece, by artist L. Mylott Manning, involves the transformation of the front window of the gallery space into a jungle of endless thread and fabric. The piece centers around a woman entwined in hundreds of tiny spools of thread.We highly recommend peeping this. The performance will run through April 8 at 7 p.m. An artist reception is happening today from 6-8 p.m.

Ombre, ombre everywhere

Ombre, ombre everywhere


In the late 90s, some of us here were in middle school and remember the punk inspired washed-out, multi-tonal blue, pink and purple hair look. Ombre was the last thing on any fashionista’s mind, to say the least. Circa 2012 and ombre is everywhere. When we started seeing teenage - middle-aged business women rocking variations of this trend, we were delighted.

Whether you rock the trend on your hair, nails, outfit or makeup, ombre is fashionably rebellious and we love it. So before you rule out being the cool kid in ombre, think again. Sherri Hill 7201 is sheer ombre heaven.

The soft lilac ombre on the lid is dramatic, yet subtle for a day-look. Don't be afraid to choose a color and ask your manicurist to give you an ombre look like this one.

Creative Cocktail


I remember watching a Diane Keaton in Manhattan as a child and hating everything she wore. I wasn’t a fan of Keaton’s long khaki skirt, embellished blouse and trademark blazer. And then something changed. I went to a cocktail event about a month ago and realized that Keaton might have had the right idea. While I was dressed in a plain black cocktail dress, everyone else had something else going on. I saw bits of burlap, knife pleats, sequins, nudes, earth tones, whites and loose fitting blazers. Keaton’s insouciant style was definitely present. Black tie, casual and business events are perfect for playing dress up and adding your own twist. I haven’t ruled out black dresses forever; they’ve just been spruced up. Well done, Keaton. For us, creative cocktail means whatever you want it to mean. It means being in your own lane and throwing caution to the wind. If you go with your instinct darling, you’ll never go wrong. Here are my picks for dresses perfect for festive black tie events. Don’t be afraid to play around with your accessories as they’re the meat and bones of the look. Throw a blazer on, a lace shawl, a sequin bolero, gold clutch and slouchy sweater.

Issue NY EV1684 is a gem on its own and oh so perfect with a loose fitting cream blazer and a burlap or linen clutch. Dress it down with a taupe cropped slouch sweater, mesh ankle socks and a pair of vintage leather saddleshoes.

Niteline 441060 is also perfect on its own or with added accessories. Make it creative cocktail by adding a cream cardigan a geometric gold chain and suede grey pumps. Add a vintage inspired ring and a strand of pearls to complete the look.

Spring Time In the City


Bill Cunningham is, for me, the godfather of New York fashion. I ran into him at a hole in the wall diner in Midtown earlier this year and almost had a heart attack. I’d been eagerly following Cunningham’s candid photo essays for years and suddenly here we were; facing each other eating breakfast at the same time, in the same diner in New York. I didn’t blog about, didn’t tweet or update any kind of status. I simply kept the experience to myself and kept it as one of my New York jewels. What I love most about Cunningham is his age and the fact that in an industry full of twenty something year old bloggers, Cunningham manages to make it look effortless as he quietly glides by on his bicycle and snaps photographs of fashionable New Yorkers and anything that catches his fancy. His latest, “On the Street,” installment inspired me to literally stop and smell the flowers. Snapshots of blooming magnolias and fruit trees were peppered in with photographs of stylish women. So as fresh florals bloomed on the runways, I took to the various New York spots to snap some of my favorite and most fashionable Spring flowers.
