Iris Apfel in Dazed and Confused

she is my favorite. since forever. holy wow yes omg. she is magnificent. she is an icon.  i have said forever, that when i grow up i will be her.  my latest collection features a “young Iris”. i was just her on Halloween — not because she is scary or that i was being cheeky, but because my wardrobe allowed it quite easily without much planning.  juuuust getting dressed in my normal way 😉

she is such an inspiration. i am so happy that she is being celebrated, i feel like it says something really positive about our culture right now that people like Iris, Anna Piaggi, — even Anna Dello Russo who is younger than the other ladies, but still “older” in fashion terms have such a prominent place in the style world.  Not only are they older, they all share an incredibly creative and free-spirited approach to fashion.

long live eccentric women! may you bring us all on your colorful journey!

silly me: art dressing

I Still Love You NYC and Jayson Musson Mara Hoffman, American Apparel

last week i went to my friend, Jayson Musson‘s solo art opening.  t’was rad.

wore some Mara Hoffman, I Still Love You NYC daisy cuff, American Apparel soft clutch and my new sky high patterned wedges.  super tall, super compy. and did i say super tall?

love that!

Natalia Grzybowski Spring Summer 2012

i am completely in LOVE with this collection by Natalia Grzybowski.  Not since i first saw Mary Katrantzou have i been this moved by an entire collection of clothing.  the engineered prints, sculptural silk and quirkily feminine designs are opulent and completely wearable.  (for me anyways!)

“each piece is an art form within itself, complementing, without overtly sexualising the female form, using shapes that are simultaneously structured, yet soft, mimicking the form of a flower.”
