My Evening Halloween Costume

My Evening Halloween Costume

Tonight, as I hand out candy to all the little kids, I dress as if I’m Dracula’s Bride. Wearing my mom’s wedding dress. I also still sport my Chanel Spring 2013 Haute Couture inspired makeup look, when it comes to … Continue reading

My Daytime Halloween Costume

My Daytime Halloween Costume

For the daytime, I went as Dracula’s Bride, (or a witch if you want to say), this Halloween. I pretty much left everybody terrified with my Chanel Spring 2013 Haute Couture inspired eye makeup, and red lipstick. As I stormed … Continue reading

A Mod and Retro-Modern feel for Nemin Marcus Holiday 2013 Lookbook

For Holiday 2013, Ginta Lapina and Karen Elson pose in some of the season’s hottest trends very wearable, and of course Chic way. Ginta Lapina captures a very Mod feel, making me think Marc Jacobs Spring 2013, and Anna Sophia Robb’s Mod and Twiggy inspired editorial in the February Issue of Teen Vogue. While Karen Elson captures a very Retro, more Ladylike feel. Bringing me reminiscene to Gucci’s ultra feminine and ladylike 40s inspired Pre-Fall 2013 collection. Both, though, each captured sported a very Modern feel within the clothing.

Marc Jacobs Leaves a Stunning Mark at Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2014 show

Sadly, all good things have to come to an end. Even the days which Marc Jacobs took rein at Louis Vuitton. But after months of speculation, it is sadly true that Jacobs, and his partner Robert Duffy will sadly be leaving the House of Louis Vuitton. Fortunately leaving the house in good terms, Jacobs final collection was filled with all things black, but that doesn’t mean that the show today was dreary. Instead: today’s show was pretty much all things but dreary. It was dramatic.

As guests arrived at the show this morning, they were greeted by none other than French maids. Leading them into probably the most Iconic atmosphere for a show yet. Re-creating set design from the shows of the past 16 years. There were hotel corridors from last season’s show, a carousel from Jacobs’ Spring 2012 show, the escalator from the Spring 2013 show, the Iconic Louis Vuitton pole from the train at the Fall 2012 show, that Iconic elevator and the doorman from Jacobs Fall 2011 show, and don’t forget that Iconic water founton from the Fall 2010 show. Each rendered in black.

Jacobs’ most recent Muse, Edie Campbell opened the show in chains and handcuffs and sporting an Iconic black headress, which all the models sported. Reminding me a little bit of the headpiece Sarah Jessica Parker sported at the Punk themed Met Gala back in May. With Natasha Poly and Kate Upton amongst the few fellow Icons sitting pretty on the carousel. Jacobs takes inspiration from the many women who have touched over the past 16 years at Louis Vuitton. As we see hints of Coco Chanel, Miucca Prada, and Rei Kawabubo, and hints of some of his best Vuitton pieces. As the models were draped in feathers and crystals, this must be the most Iconic show ever to exist in Fashion History.

“To the Showgirl in all of us.”

The way Marc Jacobs signed off his program notes.

It’s 50 Shades of Pink and Blue at Fendi Spring 2014! As Karl Lagerfeld designs a Beautiful collection, using lots of sheer fabric, ruffles, and many different fabric styles. From tieing cute little bows, to structured ruffles, to tops layered over another top, and even over skirts. For a very Structured, free expression feel, seen at many of the Spring 2014 shows so far.

Towards the end of the collection, Lagerfeld incporates Geometric prints, very Fendi and bringing me lots of reminiscence to Fendi’s Spring 2009 and 2013 collection. Along with an array of Beautiful Sparkled Cocktail like dresses. A fur Fendi clutch for Fall 2014 Fashion Week? Yes please!
