Why Don’t You… Wear a Skinny Scarf?

‘Why Don’t You’ is my weekly tribute to legendary editor Diana Vreeland who penned a column of the same name for Harper’s Bazaar for 26 years begging, “Don’t just be your ordinary dull self. Why don’t you be ingenious and make yourself into something else?” For her fall 2014 collection, Miuccia Prada was reportedly inspired by The Bitter Tears of Petra...

Why Don’t You… Wear a Backpack?

‘Why Don’t You’ is my weekly tribute to legendary editor Diana Vreeland who penned a column of the same name for Harper’s Bazaar for 26 years begging, “Don’t just be your ordinary dull self. Why don’t you be ingenious and make yourself into something else?” I was riding the train home recently, thankful to have squoze (yup, squoze) myself onto...

Items That Delight, Vol. 1

Offline, I’m a bit of a bookworm. Recently, I finished Shocked: My Mother, Schiaparelli and Me by Patricia Volk. The author, Volk, superimposes Schiaparelli, a surrealist designer’s excerpts from the memoir Shocking Life into her life growing up in New York City. My takeaway? Everything has the potential to delight. Even, say, a button. Here are the items that currently delight...

Throwback

It’s so funny how quickly things change. When I was 12, I wanted nothing more than to wear overalls with glitter Doc Marten-esque boots from Playless.

NYFW, Day 6

While I am never one to complain about New York Fashion Week–who wouldn’t want to be the first to next season’s trends–Day 6 is when it starts to feel like an actual job. I can’t find anything to wear because my contents of my entire closet are on my bed, my feet hurt, I’m tired and not to mention I’ve...

NYFW, Day 5

Via I’m going to be honest here, everyday during Fashion Week that I don’t wake up hangover and try to wear the same outfit I wore the day before is a success. Eat before you drink, guzzle water before bed, kids. I was a pro at this by the time Day 5 rolled around. 8:30 a.m. No hangover! Oh yeaaaah, Imma...

Here’s how I spent the day… 12:30 p.m. My alarm goes off, waking up on Arianna’s couch after a night out for my birthday. I ate this time (in fact, my friends threw me a...

NYFW, The First 48

You guys. New York Fashion Week almost over. Originally, I felt less stressed than last year, but I think feel like I have a lot to prove, plus add in the fact that I’m perpetually hungry, cold and tired. Last week, I made the grave mistake of drinking of an empty stomach, which, is horrible thing to do normally, but...
