Best Week Ever

Nicollette: vintage.  Tiffany: Prada skirt and top, Legs Luxury tights, ASOS feather jacket, Vintage shoes, Ted Muehling pearls and earrings.  Christina: Timo Weiland dress, Marni shoes.

The perfect couple.  The most beautiful wedding ceremony.  And an appropriately festive party to match.  It was the best weekend ever, and all of our friends were there.  Seriously wishing that it would never, ever end.  Or that we could just celebrate this marriage over and over, in perpetuity.  Jonny and Jasper Forever.  Love you guys.

People Used To Dream About The Future


The future and the past meld together seamlessly in the time-travel epic that Phoenix Keating envisioned while creating his Spring 2014 collection.  Imaging an android from the future traveling back in time to the 1920s, and falling in love with a human, Keating took futuristic silver materials, and metal rivets inspired by the industrial rivets of an airplane, and applied them to the classic femme attire of Josephine Baker's era.  The love story yields fantastical, yet entirely wearable pieces, like a grey gingham pencil skirt that's been dipped in bleach, or a floor length evening gown rendered in transparent blue organza.  Forward thinking design ideas, balanced with timelessly appealing tailoring and silhouettes.

Read My Lips

I've recently fallen into some severe beauty routine doldrums.  After getting a nice set of eyelash extensions, I've managed to whittle down my already sparse morning routine to slapping on some blush and bronzer, and heading out to work.  After a good few months of this Spartan approach to cosmetics, I suddenly had a revelation that a quick and easy swipe of lipstick could go a long way to enliven my all-too-natural look.  Plus, I calculated that it wouldn't add more than thirty seconds to my one-minute-long early morning makeup application.

Of course, I only have a couple of standby shades at home, but luckily, Jane Iredale saved the day with the launch Live In Full Bloom, their new line of moisturizing lipsticks in a range of berry tinted shades that suit each mood.  Unlike other cakey matte lipsticks, the Jane Iredale lipstick is smooth like lipbalm but delivers a ton of color.  Plus, it has the added fruity bonus of tasting like grownup versions of Lipsmackers.

Dystopian Dream Girl


Suzanne Pelaez of Suzanne Rae is an incredibly cerebral designer, and every season, it's always a pleasure to get a peek inside her head, and see what she's brooding on at the moment. Lately, she's been obsessing over the book 2150 AD by Thea Alexander, a new age cult classic.  The book centers around the coming of the Age of Aquarius in 2150, which embodies Utopian ideals of humanitarianism, environmentalism, and altruism.  The clothes in the collection are imagined to be the accompanying wardrobe for the characters in the book, as they evolve through different levels of enlightenment.  The collection contains stark and sterile white sheaths that signify the highest stage of enlightenment, and also evokes images of the future with neoprene bubble coats and digital prints that alternatively conjure images of utopia and dystopia.  I have not read the book, but after seeing the collection, I feel highly inclined to do so, especially after Suzanne's effusive recommendation.  Nonetheless, you do not need to   read the book to see the minimal beauty of the forward thinking and forward looking garments.

Second Skin


Los Angeles might be somewhat of a dark horse in the fashion industry, but one of the most exciting collections I saw during NYFW was a leather-centric line based out of the City of Angels.  Skingraft, designed by Jonny Cota, presented their first runway show for Spring 2014, featuring their body hugging leather jackets and dresses alongside mesmerizing digital prints.  Inspired by exoskeletons and sportswear, Cota created an intricately constructed second skin with seam lines that gave the illusion of outer armor.  This was further enhanced by skeletal prints that mimicked warpaint worn by tribes in Papa New Guinea.  The result was utterly entrancing, and Cota is definitely on my radar as one to watch.
