What Why Where: Orange & Oversized

What’s better than oversized outerwear? Bright colored oversized outerwear…that could easily be mistaken for a neon tent and make you look like you have shrunken arms.

Words of Wisdom

Why do you love fashion? What do you think of trends? How do you define personal style?

Do you think when designers like Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent answered these questions, they’d have such iconic answers? Although my responses of “Burn camo studded sneaker wedges” or “You’ll never find me in a bandage dress” or “We have to wear clothes everyday so why not have fun with it?” will never be as known as these fashion icons, I hope at least one person will remember them (besides my mom or my boyfriend).

Actually Cool Gifts Under $100

In my first ever actually consistent multi-part series of gift guides this year, we’re now moving on from custom gifts to something more generic…but I’m going to [try and] make it more exciting. How many gift guides have you seen with junk under $100? If you weren’t on a budget before, everyone seems to be on a budget when it comes to the holidays, but that doesn’t mean you should compromise your gift giving. So, today I’m bringing you 24 gifts (for both the ladies and the gents!) under $100 that you’ll be proud to give this year (and when adding to cart you won’t feel guilty about “quantity 2″ because let’s face it, you’ll probably buy something for yourself…it happens to the best of us).

Fashion People Doing Non Fashion Things

My interest in fashion people doing non fashion things started with this Proenza Schouler surfboard pictured here. Made in the print seen in [what I believe is] one of the greatest collections of all time (Proenza Spring 2010), this made me think…if Jack and Lazaro can make a surfboard, what can other designers make other than clothing and accessories? You may be surprised…

The Big Discussion: Designer Collaborations

My feelings towards designer collaborations (re: Isabel Marant x H&M, 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target, etc) have been very mixed. There’s been plenty of articles written either for or against them but after reading a certain story on Fashionista.com yesterday it inspired me to think of this debate in a whole new way. This is a big topic in the fashion industry right now so I’d love for you to weigh in.
