Best of Fashion Week: Model Street Style

28/02/2008, inspiration

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Okay so I know I’m behind on all kinds of posts, from every fashion week to the Oscars to a thousand other things tumbling about in my head, but I’m going to go ahead and say that a new crop of model street style pics is one of my favorite aspects about the twice-yearly fashion mayhem. The collections can take a little while to settle in and start feeling right, but the models are always dressed somewhere between impeccable and kooky with the end result being a fabulously playful feast for the eyes. My personal favorites are always Lily, Magdalena, Anja, and Natasha..and isn’t Behati just ridiculously adorable?

The eelskin clutch hath arrived

27/02/2008, shopping, vintage

A few of you asked about the more glamorous sister of the cadet blue/grayish vintage eelskin clutch I debuted this weekend, well it has arrived in my store. This thing is beyond amazing in real life, sumptuously soft to the point of insanity, in mint condition, and quite expensive-looking also I might say (even lined in suede!).

Feature: Julia von Boehm

Fashion stylist currently stationed in NYC via Germany and Paris, former assistant of Carine, and undoubted Sartorialist all-star, Julia von Boehm encapsulates all that is chic, sleek, and wildly sexy. She first caught my attention in a military green (men’s?) coat with studded Louboutins (pic to the left), complete with knowing smirk, and since then has never disappointed my relatively discerning eye. She works with texture, lengths, and shapes easily, and frequently will offset a bulky statement piece (see mega-tulip skirt, aforementioned boyfriendy coat, gray scarf for a giant, and cozy vest/pompom sweater combo) with skyhigh hemlines and bank-crippling heels.

Her perfectly off kilter home:

That parka

After reading about dreamecho’s quest to re-invent her trusty parka, I was inspired to dig mine out of the downstairs closet (ie. land of forgotten clothing items) and play around with it. I’ve always liked offsetting it with lace or ridiculous heels, takes the North Face out of it just enough.

Parka, Old Navy (from last fall). Dress, American Apparel. Heels, Nine West. Bracelets, vintage.

Thank you so much for all the kind words and congratulations! I’m going to answer all the questions in that post today, just want to make sure I address them well. One of you mentioned that headbands/scarves would be fun and it inspired me to dig up one of my favorite vintage silk scarves today. Kind of adds a more boho element to the leather skirt.

T, I forget..skirt, bracelets, and scarf, vintage. Sandals, Urban Outfitters from two years ago. Sunglasses, Forever21. Bag, Charlotte Russe.
