This word means different things to different people. It might be just a name to you. It might conjure up images of that bear from that movie I never saw.
For me, it means
I had the opportunity to attend the inaugural TEDxTimesSquare (post on that coming soon) and needless to say, I was SUPER excited. The only problem was, I didn’t know what to wear! After considering different outfits, I decided to go with a T(ee) for TEDx to achieve the perfect balance of dressy casual, “business” fashionable.
With the weather finally waking and warming up, I’m so excited to be able to wear flats again and put away those boots after all those months! Time for cute fun footwear!
If there’s one thing I need and recommend for Spring, it’s D’orsay flats. In the fall I was obsessed with my foot cleavage booties, so it only makes sense I have a Spring version!
Designer Jenni Kayne is the one who started this footwear trend ( you can see her extensive collection of D’orsay flats here) but I’m still a student and refuse to spend $400+ on shoes unless it’s my own money so here are some D’orsay alternatives I found that have both the option of price and color/design.
I say, you say, we all say D’orsay!

Today, I received my copy of The Ground Magazine. Today, I am also officially a published contributor.
That moment when you see your own name published in an international print magazine for the first time is quite a weird feeling let me tell you… but nonetheless amazing.
I’ve watched the Gossip Girl season finale about 3 times now… and I’ve never been more proud to say that I have been a fan of Gossip Girl since i read the full book series in 6/7th(?) grade. It’s great to see it wasn’t butchered like so many other movie/tv adaptations. I find it quite amazing how different mediums- books or tv- transform the content.
I didn’t know what to expect for the finale… All I have to say is that as more and more of the story unfolded and it reached its end, just when I thought it couldn’t get better, a baby Bass appears! In a full three piece suit, no less.
Too much menswear amazingness in one photo.
It’s only natural we take a moment to look at the best of Bass throughout the seasons to finish off what has been an incredible series if not to appreciate Chuck Bass in all his glory.
It’s getting colder and colder outside and this means wearing layers and bundling up while still managing to look cute.
Showing cleavage is a bit out of the question with this kind of weather, so the next best thing: showing foot cleavage.
Both Maggie Prescott in 1957′s Funny Face
and the hilariously ridiculous Miss Maxwell in William Klein’s Qui êtes vous, Polly Maggoo?
were inspired by Diana Vreeland
Who is Diana Vreeland?
I didn’t really know, but I did hear how she had once famously said,
“There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.”
So in an attempt to shake off my stir craziness and avoid the midtown traffic gridlock (due to Hurricane Sandy the other day) I walked 40 blocks to find out who said such poignant words.
Sandy has passed leaving millions without power. She has also swept away most of the Halloween spirit.
Luckily many were able to celebrate Halloween this past weekend before the storm. I’m not surprised to hear that some of Fall’s “most sought-after costumes” came from superhero movies from “The Dark Knight Rises,” to “The Avengers,” to “The Amazing Spiderman.” Catwoman and Poison Ivy costumes were reported to be popular for women. If I were to dress up I would’ve gone for the Selina Kyle Catwoman look myself.
“German philosopher Walter Benjamin wrote that what we wear says something about the dreams, hopes and preoccupations of society as a whole. This is especially true at Halloween, when our fixations, in everything from politics to pop culture surface as costumes”- Anna Russell (from WSJ article)
If you are somewhere in the Northeast and waited/waiting for Sandy to pass like I was, your windows probably looked something like this.
By this time you are probably quite aware that when it rains, it drips.
When it drips, it blurs.
When it blurs, you wipe or squeegee. Continue reading
