The Most Anticipated Night of the Year


Source: CBS

The highly anticipated fashion show of the year had people all over glued to their televison sets at 10/9c Tuesday night as this years Victoria's Secret Fashion show was underway. As their national search for the newest angel came to an end during the show, Kylie made her national debut as she walked that runway for the first time last night. Marisa Miller started the show off right, blowing away the spectators wearing the new Fantasy Bra. Worth roughly $3M this bra is adorned with 2,300 diamonds, bringing it to over 150 carats, and complete with a 16 carat heart shaped diamond pendant. Although this bra is not available for purchase it definitely started the show off right. The Black Eyed Peas swept the stage with their awesome performance, to be honest I would have loved to see Fergie strut her stuff down that runway last night.

Jade



When Chanel released its seasonal Le Vernis Jade 407 nail polish along with its Jade Rose in October critics were skeptical. It made its first debut on the tips of fingers in the fall/winter 2010 runway show. This is not a common color when it comes to polish but to everyone's surprise this color was off the shelves and into the hands of women all over the world faster than expected. With the polish already sold out the only place it can be found is on e-bay. This 25$ polish is going for as much as 165$ per bottle! That is a high price to pay for a seasonal color that may very well be out of style in a few months. There are plenty of imitators out there, but trust me, it is no Chanel Jade.

Who's Wearing What

What can you to do stay warm, fashionable, and be the talk of the town? Listen up! Here are a few trends that will be BOOMING once the winter scene cracks open!

Animal print, not just any animal print: Leopard print. And not the tacky pleather print. A classy animal print, good for any occasion. Leave it to Christian Louboutin to come out with FABULOUS booties for this season. Many of you know when he swept the scene with his basic black heel, he has really outdone himself this time. source: NYMag

This Victor Osborne cap is also a must have! Dressed up for a night on the town or worn more casual out for a stroll through the Boston Common this cap is the perfect find! source: NYMag

STRIPES! No this is not a Wheres Waldo pitch, but stripes are back! Thick, thin, horizontal stripes are back! Sweaters this season from Gap to Tim Hamilton the stripes are the thing to wear. The sweater itself is back in rare form. Dig back into your fathers closet, or your mothers if she was into sweaters. Wool, cotton, knit sweaters varying in color were all the rage a few short decades ago and now they are back. Let's see how you can rock it!

Here's just a few, more to come of course. From buckle boots to jade polish. The new trends are starting a craze in the fashion world!

Vampires: What’s the deal.

Vampires used to be scary. A figment of the imagination, a mythological creature with pale skin, dark eyes and black clothing that ran around on full moons (or is that a werewolf?) and stalked human beings to suck the blood from our necks and leave us for dead. With blood dripping form their mouths (note: they should bring lobster bibs) they’d hide in our closets and under our beds, in cemeteries and under rocks, they were the creepy guys next door, the Boo Radleys of Eastern Europe.

But now… they’re hot! And thank God! The creepy look of Dracula with his funky Eastern European accent has been replaced with the bulging man muscles and striking eyes of Edward in Twilight. Mmmmm! Edward! Wrap him up I’ll take him to go- oh and I’ll take Jacob on the side! And True Blood’s Bill Compton: oh baby oh baby! I only wish Hugh Jackman would step up to the plate and bite my neck- it’s like donating blood only better, wait do you still get cookies after a vampire bite? Doubtful but a cookie, really? Like Edward sucking on your neck isn’t good enough? If you get bit by a vampire, write me a letter and I’ll send you a cookie- HELL I’ll send you a box of Girl Scout cookies, because you are a champ.

What is this obsession with Vampires about? At first I thought it was just that creepy girl down the hall who liked them, turns out everyone likes them (even boys). Granted there haven’t been many girl vampires recently, or at all, but Victoria from Twilight could turn some heads: that long blonde hair, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and she’s BAD! (grrr)

However, ladies, the obsession is valid- who can resist?!

On a Whim


In a minute of boredom and experimentation I went from being a long haired blond, golden summer locks, to a seemingly mysterious brunette. It is crazy how a simple color change cam seem to change so much. It was fun. It won't last long, I am a blond at heart, there is no questioning that.

Just For Fun



Over what??



Source: Style

Overalls! Every girl remembers bouncing around her yard in a pair of beat up overalls. Not every girl was like me, but for years I loved bopping around the yard chasing my father while he did his yard work. It is not to say I was a tomboy but I loved my overalls. My babysitter did as well. I always tried to wear them like her, and now- overalls have rocked the runway! Ralph Lauren is taking the runway by storm, trading in the jumpsuit for your old handy overalls. Not your typical fashion craze, but anything goes these days. When practicality meets durability and style, what could be better than that? There are no limits to how overalls are to be worn, what they are to be made out of or what they should be worn for, but the concept is the same. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it out in the woods, or out on the town, this is a new craze that will rock the fashion world!

ZOO ZOO ZOO



Crazy the people you see on a daily basis at the Philly Zoo. What a place. A hot summer day in August. I roamed the zoo with my mother, feeling like a child all over again. From monkeys to snakes, giraffes to zebras, I ran from exhibit to exhibit with dip-n-dots in my hand. What a day.

Lighting in Boston

Hollywood East

Spending the summer hopping from place to place I found myself observing fashion in every facet of life. In Massachusetts I worked on a few major movies and saw the behind the scenes action of Hollywood East. It is about more than flash bulbs and glamor shots. The inner workings are such a complex production, from catering to security to locations to the teamsters, every person has their role and the end production is a Major Hollywood Motion Picture. Although I was fascinated by the plethora of trailers decorated to Hair&&Makeup as well as Wardrobe, I was not surprised. Set wardrobe was organized by actor and actress on rolling racks that were then loaded onto trucks and driven off to set for quick and easy changes. Pretty cool :P

Say Hey!

As the beach bums chase the waves in California and the snow bunnies rip tracks through fresh powder in Colorado, I sit here and enjoy the crisp fall winds, watching the once vibrant leaves turn brown and cascade softly to the ground. In this, is my inspiration.
