Frosted

Fashion week has come and gone in NYC, but unfortunately we haven't been able to say the same about the lingering winter. One things for sure: long winters remind us of the importance of good outerwear. It's the only thing a lot of people see on you much of the season, so you might as well have some killer options to break the shiver in your step. That's why I took such a liking to the fall collection shown by NYC designer babe Sandy Liang. It's a name that was new to me months ago, but now I can't stop looking at her furry frosted creations.

Beyond her bravo use of fur, her work in general is just IT right now...a quirky blend of luxe details with a laid back aesthetic that screams "COOL." Nevermind that she just graduated Parsons a few years ago...this girl is one to watch.

File under ingenius

What a brilliant idea! You'd look way more chic + discreet filing your nails in public with this...which is usually kind of taboo the normal way.

Bodega Run

After a nearly 4 month hiatus from this blog, I'm back! I didn't mean to step away that long, but hey...shit happens. At any rate, I thought I'd come back with something fresh. Fresh like like picking up a juicy bag of fruit on your way home from work. Such was Opening Ceremony's inspiration for their Pre-Fall '15 collection and it's definitely working for me. I've really been impressed the last several seasons with OC as they get more and more creative with telling a story through prints, pattern, and texture. I kind of want a banana now..

Make yourself at home

Flipping through the September issues of America's celebrity-coated fashion mags often reveals a quite literal regurgitation of the Fall runways. So it was quite refreshing when I saw this brilliant story imagined through the eyes of photographer Boe Marion and stylist Catherine Newell-Hanson. Oversized textured knits, motorcross-inspired pieces and sporty socks all mashed up against the most average of suburbia make for a really exciting vision of the season the leaves turn.

Ca$h Money

I feel like Phillip Lim is on to something with his bags for next season...very tongue in cheek. I appreciate that he doesn't take himself so seriously. Of course, if you're going to spend a lot on a bag, you want it to be "an investment piece". I guess this is kind of poking fun at that in a way?
