eva done come.

i also want to thank my truly amazing friends for coming out to support and shop and drink and love on black friday at eva.  

defining style with style defined.

i just have to say (and feel the need to do this because, well katya had a little intro too) styledefined is one of the few blogs that i actually check out on the regular.  it is rare to find a fashion blog that is NY based that doesn't take the usual approach and chase around the girls in the latest chloe' shoes with the newest marc jacobs purse.  no no, katya actually challenges herself, and her reader by offering up real fashion...  from the streets to the runways...  
so new york.

m - a - k - e - m - e - l- o - v - e - y - o - u

again and again...

what a great day.  i asked my friend emily if she might be up for helping me make a little video,  i don't know, help me with a few pointers and what not (all while secretly hoping in the back of my head that she would want to take over, and make some magic...)
thank god she said yes!

lola week on the blog...

what a wonderful night.  lola was asked by her friend adrian to spin at this thing he was hosting for dkny in soho, and so she asked me for a dress.  i had like five other things in mind for her, but she saw this red little number, and with ape over it...  i think it worked.  i can remember my friend isa commenting to me how red was a color that few could carry, but lola was one of the chosen.  agreed!

vintage brian stanziale

my computer has been moving at the slowest possible pace, so in an effort to speed things up, i started going through and deleting everything that i haven't used or seen in a while.  little did i know, all the great photos that i would come across of some of my older pieces.  this is one from a few years ago, and little miss lola wore this number on the lamest night of our ny existence.  this evening started out in the manhattan club zone up in the 20's, ie bed and guest house... and wound up with a walk to taco bell, and an impromptu photo shoot on 14th st.  
alls well that ends well!
love you lola.

my grandma is so chic.

is the ceremony of dressing dead?
i can remember the days when i was a little kid, watching my grandmother run from her bedroom closet, through the bedroom, and into the bathroom, where on the large counter, she had an assortment of clamps and colors and tweezers and brushes and earrings and necklaces and rings and you get the picture, all laid out in-front of her.  all the while, every move she made as traced in a silk shadow from her dressing gown.  i can still remember wondering up until the very last minute, the car is ready, the purse is properly packed, and larry is heading to the door, is she fully dressed?  is this long floor length, rose painted, burgundy and gold masterpiece your dress for the evening?!  no, it wasn't, it was just part of the dressing ceremony.  once everything was in place, and set, then the real dress came out.  but still, i cant help but think...  i still to this day cant remember a single gown she ever wore, but i remember every silk kaftan.
this is why dynasty has been so exciting...  i have started a new game, evening gown, or night gown.  they all look amazing!
