Have you ever watched a fashion show on the TLC network called “Love, Lust, or Run”? Or how about a show called “Style by Jury”, “Fashion Police”, or “What Not to Wear”? Chances are, if you haven’t seen these shows, you’ve at least heard about them. Aside from “Fashion Police”, …

DETAILS

DETAILS
  To me, style is in the details. A fabulous shoe. A great piece of Jewelry. A gorgeous pair of vintage sunglasses. A quirky handbag. These are things that tend to give an outfit that unmistakable flair. My wardrobe mainly consists of well cut basics in neutral colors, that flatter my figure, but don’t necessarily […]

Eastern Inspiration: The Costume Institute Exhibit at the Met



I finally stopped by China: Through the Looking Glass, this summer’s Costume Institute exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The exhibit explores Chinese culture’s influence on fashions—in the East and in the West—over the centuries. Over 140 garments, many created by well-known designers like Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs, are displayed in rooms on three floors. To emphasize the connection between culture and fashion, the garments are juxtaposed with Chinese paintings, films, porcelains and other objects. Don't you love the influence of Chinese porcelain on the garments above and below?



Although photography is allowed in the exhibition, the room lighting is often dimmed for dramatic effect. Nevertheless, I took a few snapshots to share with readers who may not be able to attend this wonderful exhibit.

BIG BOLD SLEEVES

BIG BOLD SLEEVES
  I am obsessed with dramatic sleeves. Batwing….Bell….Poofy. It really doesn’t matter, as long as they’re big and bold. I have actually been known to resort to extraordinary measures to get the puffiest sleeve possible by stuffing them with tissue paper to ensure that they don’t “deflate” during the day.  I cannot tell you how […]
