Whither Fall/Winter 2011?

It’s New York Fashion Week!  It’s New York Fashion Week!  It’s New York Fashion Week! *takes a deep breath* Kinda feels like everybody’s there, right?  Well, not the DCGF this time around (sad face), but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been keeping an eagle eye on the runways from a safe distance.  It’s been a […]

Caped Crusader

When you hear the word “cape,” you might think of Batman & Robin or Superman.  But Fall 2010′s trend is not inspired by a superhero.  Think more along the lines of fur stoles, beaded shrugs, and sophisticated wool toppers that are anything but cartoonish.  The cape is one of the hottest silhouettes this fall, in any number […]

The Cat’s Pajamas

It is hot out there.  I mean, REALLY hot.  No wonder everyone goes on vacation in DC in August.  It’s too hot to be here. But if I must go outside, then I must have on chic sunglasses for two reasons:  To protect my eyes (and the delicate skin around them) from the damaging rays […]

Salute

The military-inspired trend never seems to go away in total (not that I want it to).  As such, it’s being revamped and reinterpreted for Fall 2010 in a softer, more feminine style.  I’m digging it.  What do you think? Catherine Malandrino Jersey Dress Ooooh, sexy.  Ruching is ultra-feminine and kind of disguises any figure flaws […]

Hey, Shawty!

My goodness, it’s HOT out there!  I almost got heatstroke today taking a long, long walk in the hot, hot sun.  DC summers are no joke.  Which brings me to the subject of today’s trend report, shorts.  Love ‘em, hate ‘em, either way, you’re gonna need ‘em.  At least, that’s kind of how I feel […]

Button It!

Ah, the Shirtdress.  Simple to wear, classic cut, wear it to work or out on the town.  I have a black crepe shirtdress that I’ve had for years, and it’s a great staple that always seems to look like the perfect thing in so many different situations.  I add belts to mix it up – […]

Velvet Goldmine

Velvet is back. You might remember it from the late 80’s/early 90’s and cringe, but this time around, the fabric is getting a new lease on life. It’s not as frumpy as it once was, as designers are reworking the fabric into new shapes, colors and styles that look fresh and vibrant. The bright jewel […]

Armour All

Attention, Metal Heads! If you like metal, you will love this trend. Chains, chain mail, and disco-style metal mesh. It’s here, and it’s fierce. Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2009 chain mail minidress topped with a leather sleeveless vest is the epitome of tough chic. As part of his couture line, it is somewhat hard, if […]

Street Cred

Bloggers are getting some crazy street credibility in the fashion world. In fact, during New York Fashion Week, many independent fashion bloggers were invited to major shows, which has not happened in years past. It just goes to show that bloggers have been recognized as a legitimate form of media, and not just an indie […]

Strike A Pose

The finalists for this year’s Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund were announced on Tuesday, dear readers (thanks for the link, Janel), and I’m thrilled to say that one of my personal faves, Vena Cava, is in the running for the award! Big up to Sophie Mayock and Lisa Buhai, whose line is what I consider aspirational, from […]
