Be my friend?

Grace Coddington. Since The September Issue just was released on DVD, I watched it for the second time and really loved Grace in the movie, her humor, style, creativity and the way she can put an idea together into a photo shoot truly amazes me. In the movie they show pictures of her when she modeled for Vogue, she's gorgeous. Oh and it doesn't hurt that she's from Whales (the British accent wins it all).

Private Tour

Last Friday I was grateful enough to get a private tour of Barney's NY with my fashion club at school, I really had no idea what to expect because I've never even set foot in Barney's! Our tour guide (Taylor) was a very educated on Barney's gay man that had worked there since 1994. He knew all the in's and out's and told so many stories.

Did you know....
+ Goyard bags started the vinyl monogram, not Louis Vuitton.
+ Alexander Wang worked for the fashion director of Barney's
+ Frederic Malle is a genius? (more about that later)
+ Kid's True Religion jeans are $150 (ew)
+ Barney's discovered not only Seven Jeans, but also Giorgio Armani!
+ Barney's has a very well known selection of jeans, and the employees should be able to look at you and tell you what size, style and brand of jean would look the best on you
+ Barney's started as a men's wear store in Brooklyn that was known for discounted items

Top Picks: Part 2

I told you I would follow up with more of my favorites from New York Fashion Week, and here are the last of my favorite designers in alphabetical order once again:

Marc by Marc Jacobs - once again Marc amazes me, as always. I am in love with the draping of fabrics, the colors (oranges and reds mixed with greys and browns) and the patterns.

Mulberry - surprisingly Mulberry was another one of my favorites, I am obsessed with the luxurious bold patterns, shoes, fabrics and designs Mulberry put together

Oscar De La Renta - the classic ODLR did it again, the sheer dresses of course won me over a long with the fur accents and the gorgeous embellishments

Top Picks: Part 1

Well, New York Fashion Week is officially over, and I can start showing my favorites from the week. I have too many that I narrowed them down to 10(ish), so I'll split it up into three posts of favorite designers overall and some favorite looks that I wasn't expecting. I was pretty thrilled with everything for FW this fashion week, a lot blew me away and took it to another level. I've already mentioned here that I saw a trend of oranges that I'm loving so much, with that I've also noticed a lot more velvet (YES, I love velvet) and more sheer, more black, more color blocking and knits. All of which I'm thrilled about.

First five favorites in alphabetical order:

Adam - gorgeous shapes, knits, shoes, tights and detailing of the knits won me over.

Costello Tagliapietra - in love with the colors and the blocking of different colors used, the dull green, pinks and oranges are gorgeous

Julian Louie - this to me is so wearable, I would die for any of it, of course the neutral colors and pale ones made me love this so much.

Milly - I was surprised I enjoyed Milly's line as much as I did, I usually am not a fan but I loved the color blocking and the textured tights. The patterns she used made me think private school, and Paris for some reason!

Finding the way to fashion

I've been in love with the work of Elisabeth Lecourt for awhile now, but haven't brought it up here. Her work with maps and how she folds them is so amazing, I would love to own her work and either frame it, or wear it!
