Chanel Fall 2015 @ Café Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld has an enticing way of making Chanel appear ordinary by placing his models on seemingly average stages. Fall 2014’s collection dazzled a grocery store where Cara Delevingne strutted down grocery store isles searching for Chanel milk. Probably 1% because that is arguably the best percentage of dairy. Spring 2015 was presented in the midst of a Women’s Rights protest where in the mix, Kendall Jenner held signs for gender equality. Fall 2015, however, was revealed in nothing less than a Parisian café designed exclusively for Chanel. Models, rather than ...

Photo(booth)shoot

Remember when Photo Booth was very much a thing around 5 years ago? Well, I (hopefully along with other people) think it’s time to welcome Photo Booth back into the norm. Hopefully Photo Booth pictures from 7th grade—or your equivalent of an awkward stage—with your best friend are of you throwing up the “peace sign” or smiling with braces. All complete with the Thermal Camera effect (that SUPER appealing one that makes you look green and blue!!) However, my approach to the Photo Booth renaissance is to implement the aesthetic appeal ...

Kanye’s Kollection

  During New York Fashion Week, Kanye West debuted his first collection in collaboration with Adidas Originals. In my opinion, the collection should have been “Kanye’s Kollection” to follow in Kim K’s footsteps. I initially questioned Yeezy’s rise into the high fashion world, but the collection’s slideshow Style.com proved otherwise. I felt a sudden urge to go camping or do something adventurous in the skin tone athletic wear. Spring Break wearing Kanye x Adidas Originals is calling me. Rather than a traditional line up of well-known models, Kanye arranged his models in rows ...

Velvet is my Valentine

Valentine’s Day is a day for the couples and hopeless romantics of the world. While I probably fall into the latter category, there’s always the question of what to wear. Something seductive because it’s supposedly a day of love? Or more of a girl’s night outfit? I went somewhere in between as the title suggests--velvet is my valentine. Because a groundhog saw a dark silhouette of himself on the ground, the weather is cloudy with a chance of rain for the next six weeks and I’m layering with turtlenecks. And ...

Unofficial Best Dressed List: Grammys 2015

            The 57th Annual Grammy Awards premiered on February 8 (Sunday) and with it, celebrities premiered their gowns and suits on the infamous red carpet. I didn’t even bother to add Beyoncé to my own biased best-dressed list because at this point, it’s basically just assumed that she’s the reigning number one. Without further ado, I present—in no particular order—The Unofficial 57th Annual Grammy Best-Dressed List. I’ll start with the one that was made into the most memes: Rihanna wearing Giambattista Valli frequently referred to as a quinceñera dress or Princess ...

On Faux Fur

California chooses juice cleanses and almond-milk lifestyles and New York switches to faux fur and vegan leather. It’s a new era in which people have become both environmentally and fashionably conscious. Nevertheless, real leather is still a thing and mink coats remain prevalent at Fashion Weeks around the globe. People who wear those mink coats, however, should not have red paint thrown on them when they walk into a city (they probably spent half their life savings on that coat to look like a million bucks because that’s how much ...
