  • Lookbook// Spring In My Step: where the Safari meets the Yacht

  • This is inspired by my preppier side and the recent leaning of Michael Kors to add a bit of safari inspired fun to some of his latest designs. The yellow is vibrant but not dishwater dull preppy pastel. It it is type of yellow you may see in the beads of a Massai woman's beaded sandals or arm bangles. It is the kind of yellow that is also a bit sexy. You get the point. I'm going for a bolder than [...]
  • My Lookbook// We Run The Night: Leather meets Neon

  • Just when you thought you were being overloaded about what is hot for the spring, you stepped outside one night and realized one thing. It is not spring yet. While Washington, DC has been blessed with unusually warm weather, some nights are rather frigid.

  • PARKCHOONMOO's runway line up featured dark clothing which followed a set of  luminous outfits in creamy white. From sheer panels to heavy draping, the cut was superb.

I also really like the v-necked part [...]
  • Trend Spotting with Belgium's Lisa H// Shopping guide : Mint green

After the color blocking trend, this softer color is definitely a refreshing change and it also reminds us of the upcoming spring. Not really into pastel tints? Choose a stronger shade and you're good. Mint can be ea[...]
  • Trend Alert with VIV of NYC: SPRING 2012 FASHION AND HAIR TREND

  • SPRING 2012 TRENDS Spring 2012 Trends take a drastic turn from last seasons more edgier over the glam top fashions.  This year it's more feminine frocks, pastels and all over lace fabrics. Although it doesn't stop there because in my opinion there are far more items trending in one given season than a woman knows what to do with. What else should you look out for when the weather turns [...]

  •  ---   Nautica Men's Fall 2012 Presentation --- @ Ed's Chowder House    Beyond the plethora of sculpted eye candy, there was a nice variety of classic styles for men. Nautica's trademark winter wind breaker was redesigned for a sleeker modern look. Of course, nautical stripes made their appearance on sweaters and knit hats.  I do however like the leaner stripes in cream and black as it is a [...]
  • IFB Conference: The bloggers, the scene + what i wore

  • IFB Conference was awesome this season. A host of fashion bloggers and panelist made the conference a packed out event. If you arrived just a few minutes late then you were one of the many bloggers forced to sit on the floor or lounge against walls. There was a sense of excitement and buzz of friendship that was missing at the last conference. It was great to see new and old faces. The conference[...]
