The Oscars – Dress Picks!

Last night I admit, I wasn’t totally in the Oscar/Red Carpet mood, although I’d been looking forward to the Oscars. I’m not an expert on film, and my appreciation of it is based on two things: the simple pleasure of watching a story, then having my inner stream of conciousness sparked through emotions evoked, and second, the immense amount of time, dedication…

Youth & The Luxury of Time

“Do you ever feel like we are wasting our youth?” This is what a dear friend said to me a few hours ago, over an after-work apero (aperatif). What real food for thought. I myself admit to spending a lot of time over-thinking things. I often get lost in my thoughts, so much so, that I miss what is going…

Alexander McQueen, The Great

(photo from WWD.com) Here’s how it happened for me. When I got to work this morning, I was excited that fashion week had finally arrived. I got the usual cup of coffee and hunkered down to do a bit of work, while keeping an eye on several news feeds online open in an extra window so I could keep up.…

Pre-runway Buzz: The New “It” Model – Sedene Blake

There’s a tingle in the city, this week Fashion Week comes to New York. Like everyone else, I’m eager, excited and printed the schedule weeks ago, tacked it up, and neon yellow marks the key presentations I’m dying to eventually see. A bit of anticipatory buzz has been certainly circulating; among it I have come across tidbits on new models…

2010 Grammy Awards – My Top Rated Dresses

I haven’t ever posted my top picks for gowns or beauty/hair looks from awards ceremonies before, but since I created this blog as an avenue to voice my opinion, I figured, why not! But there’s good reason here still. More and more as time goes on, I see a beautiful convergence between the industries of musicians/artists, designers/dress-makers and film actors/celebrities.…

iWant: Apple Bites and the Brand

Today, the power of the Internet came into full view, and I myself participated heavily in the massive flux of information, up to the minute coverage, of Apple’s tablet announcement. I personally was following 2 separate feeds on Twitter and also a couple of websites. Then copy/pasting all I could into my own Facebook status update. (What fun to be…

Ode to the Nordik & Winter Knits

It’s gotten very chilly in New York City these days, and this past weekend the wind was simply icy. Despite a woolly cap and double wrapped scarf, the little rounds of my cheeks that were exposed actually tingled and went numb. I’m not good at handling very cold weather, but I do like to taste the air when it gets…

Giving Thanks

This year Thanksgiving felt different to me. It might be the recession that tinted my mood, or maybe maturity that comes with age, likely to be a bit of both. This year, Thanksgiving wasn’t a corny excuse to cook a lot, eat a lot and then sleep a lot. No, this year I found myself feeling much more thoughtful and…

Halloween ‘09

This year I chose to channel my inner Cleopatra and oddly enough, I found the role easy to play! I was insistent on playing it fully, and couldn’t bear to but a synthetic patchwork costume out of a vinyl bag. So I went on the hunt for a floor-length dress, some kind of overpowering necklace and practiced the makeup, and…
