New York Fashion Week – SS15

As I mentioned in my previous post, I just got back from a whirlwind trip to New York, and got to participate in some Fashion Week festivities. Chief goal on this visit was to stock up on fabric to finish out the year for Project Design 2014, and just to get some general inspiration, maybe take in some art, just take in this great city.

I finally made it!

Stocking up at Mood

While I decided to go during Fashion Week, I didn’t have any specific plans to go to any shows. I ended up getting the privilege to see the Taoray Wang SS15 collection.  Tao Wang , already an established designer in China, made her New York debut with this spring collection.  It was a very strong collection.  Very architectural, but still feminine.   And some of the best foot ware (in my opinion Winking smile )

It’s Fashion Season!

If the fashion industry had a specific time of year, like most holidays that we celebrate, September would be it.  A month long celebration of all that is glorious about fashion; clothes, shoes, accessories, etc.

Coming off the heels of a whirlwind trip to New York (detailed post on that to come shortly), we are gearing up for a major fashion event here in Detroit.

Cocktail Hour–Moscow Mule

The Moscow mule has been making a resurgence lately along with many other classic cocktails.  Born in the 1940’s, and popularized in the vodka crazy 1950’s, it is classically service in a copper mug.  However, with the price of copper this days, a Tom Collins or highball glass will do just fine. moscowmule

The Moscow Mule is light and refreshing with a zing from the ginger beer.  It will be the perfect compliment to your pre-summer barbeques this weekend.  To look stylish drinking your mule, I’ve got some great patriotic outfits in the my latest post at The Styleshack.

Moscow Mule

  • 1/2 oz Lime juice
  • 2 oz vodka 
  • 4 –6 oz ginger beer

Squeeze lime juice into a Collins glass (or Moscow Mule mug) then drop the lime in the glass. Add 2 or 3 ice cubes, then pour in the vodka and fill with cold ginger beer (not ginger ale, although what the hell). Serve with a stirring rod.

Crave Piece of the Week–Manolo’s Borlak Pump


Manolo-Blahnik-Borlak-Satin-PumpsWe’re always craving a fantastic pair of shoes, aren’t we?  This is a fantastic pair.  This shoe to me is made of pure Cinderella, glass slipper stuff.

Regal, elegant, and fantasy all rolled into  one.

What do you think?  Did they make your crave list too?

Crave Piece of the Week–ML Monique Lhuillier Party Dress


model-pinkdress_galPinned this one a while back, but it’s still relevant.  With wedding season getting into full swing, you may want to consider something similar to this dress.  The cross-over bodice creates a nice nipped in waist, and the full skirt will be comfortable, and won’t have you worrying about how many slices of wedding cake you’ve eaten.

I love it because it’s a nice mix of retro feel, but still feels modern.




Yay or nay?

Crave Piece of the Week–Links of London Stardust Necklace


5020.2635-stardustrosegoldtubenecklace_360x360$I came across pieces from this company as I was perusing the April issue of InStyle poolside, and I was instantly intrigued. 

I really like that their pieces have some visual weight to them but are not overpowering.  Interesting but understated design.
