The NY Project

The NY Project- Teen Vogue’s Eleanor Banco from FASHIONmeGREEN on Vimeo.

Fact: I don’t care about “green” fashion. I don’t want to get political, but really, how can it be green if you’re using new materials and resources to make it? Green fashi0n= vintage, yo… Right?  That aside, I was really impressed with this video by The NY Project.  They gave Eleanor Blanco, Style.com and Teen Vogue’s PR Director, a “sustainable style makeover.” The results? Amazing. Blanco looks great and all of the clothes are as beautiful as they are eco-chic- apparently. Plus, the shoot was at The Soho House, which, to me, seems to be one of the greatest places in NYC. Maybe it’s time to rethink my stance on “sustainable style”…

Menswear Fashion Week

I’m not usually into Menswear Fashion Week for many reasons- but mostly because I feel like I need a breather in between Resort and Couture- it’s hard to keep up with everything! Also, when it comes to men’s fashion, I usually prefer my guys in converse/sperry’s, not the crazy items seen down the runway. But- the boys on the catwalk are nice to look at, and Italy, it seems,  is one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

Of course, this all changed when I saw Garance Dore’s coverage of the events- she captures everything in such a refreshing light, doesn’t she? She makes fashion fun again. Then again, it doesn’t hurt that her usual subjects are fashion royalty- Anna Dello Russo & Co and other style-savvy glamazons. Check out her coverage here, here and here.

PS: Anyone else super-excited for couture week? It’s just around the corner!!

Resort 2010 Part II

More of my favorites from resort- gotta love emerging designers doin’ their thang.

I’ve always loved Roy’s use of different silhouettes and colors- who would ever think of orange wide-leg trouser? Um, she does, and makes me realize it’s what my wardrobe has always been missing. Plus, those heels are bananas. I. Want. Now.

I feel like if you were a fashionable Parisian woman in the late 1940s you’d be wearing this. Stefano Pilati  just makes it all work, plus adds interesting proportions and color combinations. And the patterned white dress? Amazing, gorgeous and so wearable!

Vena Cava makes white interesting again- these guys know how to play with textures and make black seem anything but boring or basic. It’s exactly what I want to wear right now- and those orange platforms are making it onto my wish list immediately.

Seriously, anything Rag & Bone puts down the runway is instantly cool. If I saw a girl wearing any of this down the street, I’d instantly want to be her friend. The leather dress is my favorite item from any resort collection- it doesn’t matter that it’s extremely impractical/would get really hot/wildly overpriced.

What are your favorite Resort 2010 collections?

Resort 2010 Part I

Honestly, not very impressed by most- isn’t resort supposed to be sunny and refreshing? Anyways. here is the first installment of my favorite resort collections

Karl can really do no wrong- and how amazing does Crystal Renn look? Better than half the other models, that’s for sure. Plus, he did it in St. Tropez, one of the chicest cities in the world, where a can of beer is $7 and the people are more beautiful than you can imagine.

Doo.Ri is so ladylike and feminine and makes me want to be a lady who lunches. The end.

Jason Wu is another who can do no wrong- he always goes with feminine and tailored and manages to keep it refreshing and new. I love the bows/shorts/dresses/heels/everything.

Lela Rose not only has an amazing apartment, but one of the most wearable resort collections this season. Seriously you could buy any of her pieces right now and look fresh and classic and cool all at the same time.

Stay tuned for Resort part II coming soon

Sunglasses

Ahh, sunglasses. You really can’t ever have too many of them- if you’re like me, you lose them everywhere, from friends’ cars to the bottom of your purse/the grocery store/work/sock drawer and then only have your ugly silver pair to shield you from the sun. Oh, wait, I’m the only one who buys $3 sunnies on impluse? Probably true. Anyways, here are some great sunglasses for the summer that are sure to satisfy anyone with any budget.

(L to R) Norma Kamali- $95.92, D&G-$130.50, Ray-Ban- $145,

Fred Flare- $11, Marc by Marc Jacobs- $150, Punky Pins- $10
