As much as I adore my digital SLR, the iMac “Photo Booth” has a peculiar draw to it when it comes to snapping a quick picture. Thus, what you’re reading right now is a webcammed outfit post.
I wore this neon heel-injected housewife ensemble to a few meetings earlier in the week. After kissing my bubbaroos goodbye (see below), of course.
Shop The Look: Neon green heels (Nelly.com), orange tweed skirt (Jaeger), black shoulder-padded dress worn as a top (vintage), and “Liable” red lipstick (Illamasqua).
Probably due to the 90-something degree weather in New York right now, the fact that I shouldn’t be wearing black trench coats has me obsessing over them. Yesterday, when I was checking out the latest issue of Interview, I noticed that Kristen Stewart had decided to rub it in.
The Western Hemisphere may not be temperature-friendly enough for this ensemble at the moment, but the styling is perfect for the Snow White heroine. Maybe I’ll make a pit stop in Australia to test drive this baby on my way back to London….

Though I have only seen three episodes so far, I am becoming slightly addicted to new TV show “Pan Am“. One of many reasons why? The fashion, of course.
On top of strong female characters and intriguing (yet just about believable) plotlines, the production quality and costume department have obviously both been working overtime. It is a visual feast. Hopefully, my three Pan Am-inspired looks will be, as well!

Last night, Lady Gaga cut the rope on “Gaga’s Workshop” at Barney’s New York. The lucky superstar even got Karl Lagerfeld to create a custom Chanel dress (and overall look) for the event.
What do we have here? White tweed with black trim, asymmetrical hemline, Chanel pearls, camelias and bows. Our beloved Stefani Germanotta paired the couture piece with black and gold studded platforms – as only she could do – and an intricate fascinator.
Want to see how the sketch came to life?
Yes. That is Florence Welch singing “What The Water Gave Me” in a half shell. (No-one ever claimed Karl Lagerfeld was a minimalist).
Playing with a palette that mimicked a sea-soaked set of pastels, Prospero…I mean Lagerfeld…opened Chanel Spring/Summer 2012 with the dark-haired beauty trifecta of Saskia de Brauw, Freja Beha Erichsen and Aymeline Valade.
This season, Uncle Karl was inspired by pieces that have been shaped at the bottom of the ocean by natural processes, taking millions of years to form. There were also about a million (or eighty) looks, combining new fabrics with pearls, lightness, and the lexicon of Chanel heritage. Mille-feuille and tweed for all the mermaids of the world!
Six decades in this business and he is still at the top. View Post
