Guess what tomorrow is… Fashion’s Night Out! And this year I’ll be back in my favorite old stomping grounds to celebrate. I will be at Urban Chic in Georgetown sketching shoppers, come see me!
NYFW is right around the corner and this means model casting is in full swing right now. All week I’ve felt very miniature riding the elevator on my way up to my studio next to this seemingly different species as they head into castings being held in my building.
It is especially entertaining when more than one is in the elevator with me at the same time. They rarely acknowledge each other which drives me nuts. I want to blurt out “So you all are tall, huh?” or something like that. The competitive, silent tension is almost painful for me to witness. Sometimes they even plop down in the middle of the elevator right next to me, like this is a dressing room that happens to propel upward, and start putting on stilettos. And still, no one says anything. Kills me.
It’s getting to be that time of year again. Time for lady-like trends to push maxi dresses and nautical stripes aside. Bring on the shiny, furry and the pleated. Let the wild cardiganing begin, invest in opera gloves, and burgundy leather bags. Paint your nails dark gray and put peter pan collars on everything! It’s fall!
Speaking of peter pan collars… how do we feel about them? I for one know I would look like the actual peter pan wearing one. Not good. I think you need to balance it with something very womanly. Like big hair to reinforce the fact that you are just pretending to be a little boy.
The Loren Hope Fall/Winter Collection 2012 launched yesterday with a beautiful new lookbook. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to look through the whole thing, its perfectly styled and the new pieces are exquisite.
My favorite thing about the book is the section Loren added called “Taking it to the street” in which she asked a group of bloggers to style her new collection with their own wardrobes. For example, thats Blair Eadie above. And drum rolll….
I am beyond thrilled and honored to be included in this group of women! Thats me on the right and Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling beside me.
Here are a few more highlights from my adventure in styling…
