Happy Long Weekend!

I hope that everyone is having a fantastic long weekend filled with family, friends and end of summer BBQ's. I had a beautiful summer on the West Coast with lots of beach days and visits from friends all over the country! It was great...I got to see a ton of concerts this summer too, like Depeche Mode at the Hollywood Bowl (amazing!) and The Dead Weather at the Wiltern (electric!)

Thhhhhhhaaaaaaaaank Youuuuu! to Martin and Dave for a great night!

Now its time for Fall and New York Fashion Week! Looking forwards to boots, leather leggings and yummy sweaters. I'm packing all my vintage jackets and purses for New York and getting the rest of the collection ready for the upcoming shows! We are presenting the SS2010 Collection at the Designers and Agents show starting September 20th.

See you on the East Coast!

Bat For Lashes vs. Margiela SS/09

This past Monday I had the good luck to get invited to see Bat For Lashes live at the Henry Fonda Theater here in Los Angeles. The show was stellar and her outfit was INSPIRATIONAL to say the least.

I think there are definite reference to the Margiela SS/09 "Hair" Collection. I know many critics thought it was controversial (hair on hair on jackets) but I LOVED it. Mostly because I enjoy seeing the use of unconventional materials in fashion AND I love the genius that is Margiela.... Check out Natasha vs. Margiela below:

And I thought I was adventurous in my outfit! I had on a vintage palm print jumpsuit that I have been dying to wear all summer, and some strappy gladiator wedges. Of course accessorized with the best concert jewelry of them all - all access wristbands for the afterparty!

Chic to Chic

As fashion week invites keep pouring in the social calendar is already getting full! We are also going to swing by the Armani boutique to say hello to our friends there at Fashion's Night Out... Check it!

I'd Rather Wear Accessories!

I am heading to New York for NYFW! So very excited to get to the city and check out all the fun events at "Fashion's Night Out" on September 10th. First off is the big party being held at Henri Bendel's Flagship store on 5th Avenue.

"Henri Bendel will be joining 700 other participating retailers next Thursday night, September 10th, to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out, a global initiative spearheaded by Vogue, the CFDA and the City of New York to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion.

The theme of the evening is “I’d Rather Wear Accessories” and nowhere will this be more evident then in the beautifully crafted mannequins in the window and throughout the store “dressed” entirely in accessories. Picture a couture ball gown made exclusively of gloves or a 40’s inspired dress made entirely of pearls.

Guests will be treated to cocktails and nibbles courtesy of STK and chic beats by DJ, Niki McNally, while mingling with designers at The New and the Next Gallery. Carlos Falchi, Rodrigo Otazu, Badgley Mischka, Rebecca Minkoff, Trish McEvoy, among others, will be making personal appearances. Over 40 designers have created one of a kind pieces, which we will be auctioning off to benefit the 911 Memorial fund.

Gossip Girl’s, Eric Daman and Revlon’s Gucci Westman will be styling and making over guests for the “I’d Rather Wear Accessories” photo shoot. Guests will have an opportunity to enter the “I’d Rather Wear Accessories” sweepstakes where one lucky winner will win the accessory of their choice.

Vogue model and artist, Sasha Pivavorova, will be curating an exhibit of her works. Our renowned in-house illustrator, Izak Zenou, will be sketching personalized “I’d Rather...” portraits.

And that’s not all...we will also be raffling off fabulous prizes, such as, the ultimate Henri Bendel luggage set, beauty baskets filled with products worth in excess of $750, a $200 gift certificate for dinner at STK plus a 10 pack of core fusion classes at exhale at the Gansevoort New York."

Sounds like fun! See you guys there...
