1 year blogiversary + Maison Kitsuné Spring Summer 15 at NYFW

Gratuit

*blows off the dust*

Well, hello, there! I know that it’s been an age. I’ll spare you the uninteresting details of how my day job has sucked up my life, but I just couldn’t let my 1 year blogiversary pass without a post.*

And a post about my first New York Fashion Week event ever! Yes, I said ever. Despite being a lifelong New Yorker. Hey, better late than never, right? And what a way to start it off, with the Maison Kitsuné Spring/Summer 15 collection, in all its adorable Frenchness. How fitting, n’est-ce pas?!

OOTD: Ça va, Degas?

Affilier Acheté

One of my favorite things to do is to take something dressy and wear it for everyday by dressing it down with something casual. I finally got my long-coveted Alexandra Grecco tulle skirt, and the sun finally came out in New York, and so I spun together my favorite kind of OOTD: a magical one.

OOTD: Ready for my closeup

Gratuit

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

When you work in Long Island City and are looking for places to shoot an OOTD, your choices are pretty limited. The day these photos were taken, Danielle and I meandered over to what turned out to actually be Silvercup Studios. Luckily, no one kicked us out! Alas, I was not discovered, and am still working my day job. Le sigh.

What you can’t see is that the light above Stage B was lit, meaning they were taping behind there.

Wishlist Wednesday #30 – Breton Stripe Dress

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

I’m just a bit obsessed with stripes. I’m not sure that you knew that about me. Just in case you’re not familiar…

DSC_1653 With flash 20131001_160514_1-2 I have one or two Marinière, or Breton stripe, shirts (like so [Petit Bateau is classic, obvi], but lately I have been hankering for a Breton stripe dress.

(The history of the Marinière is really interesting, if you’re a nerd like me. It was originally the uniform of the French navy [hence the “Marinière”], who hailed from Brittany [hence the “Breton stripe”. If you want to read more, I loved this article.)

OOTD: Dot Dot Dash

OOTD I can’t post this OOTD without getting teary. This was back when I had my lovely photographer/friend/colleague Danielle to take photos for me. And this was back when my hair was actually long. The one thing I don’t miss is the surroundings. They may make for good fashion photos, but try working somewhere where this is all that’s around you!

OOTD
MY HAIR!! *SOB*

It was certainly too cold to leave the office without a coat, though it was just slightly warmer—enough for me not to have to bundle into my big, black puffer coat and break out my beautiful purple coat.

OOTD A tad blurry, but I had to point out that my friend Dagmar and I found out that we both had the same sunglasses. 🙂

OOTD I know it’s a tad matchy matchy, but I actually love this outfit. Black, white, and red is one of my favorite color combinations.

OOTD I always feel a bit fabulous wearing it.

OOTD But I can still laugh at myself. 🙂

DSC_2300 This was my first attempt with the Bobbi Brown liner, incidentally. The lipstick is Melt’s Belladonna 2.

OOTD Yes, I AM a bit ridiculous. 🙂

Socks in Perfect French – Mes Chaussettes Rouges

Affilier Gratuit

“Socks in Perfect French” was the subject line of an email I received from Mes Chaussettes Rouges, a French company that sells men’s socks. I was told that they’ve been catching on with women, as well, because everyone needs warm and well-made socks, and asked if I’d like to try a pair.

I don’t know if you know what New York has been like this winter, but let me demonstrate for you:

And it has left me feeling cold, as well as:

So when a lovely Frenchman named Jacques asks if you’d be interested in receiving warm socks from France, you say, “Oui! Bien sûr!” (And, of course, “Merci beaucoup!”)
