Germany Influences Prada A/W 2014

Prada. Every season is something out of the box. Sometimes making us question if the pieces should stay in the box. According to Style.com, Miucca Prada took inspiration from German artist Joseph Beuys: His extensive work is grounded in concepts of humanism, social philosophy and anthroposophy; it culminates in his “extended definition of art” and the idea of social sculpture as …

Nipples On the Runway – NSFW?

While living in Minneapolis a few years ago I found myself deep in prudish conversation about nudity on the runway. A naked model might not be your thing, but it certainly isn’t pornography. The conversation was actually about a sheer blouse with no bra – which I personally find tres chic. Even if the owner …

THRIFTED: DESIGN BRIEFCASE & ROC TODO

Thrifted: Design Briefcase This weekend I was able to find this awesome retro style leather briefcase. It was “locked” and I spent probably ten minutes trying to figure out the combination, knowing there would be a deed to a mansion and several million dollars hidden inside. Finally (thanks to my boyfriend Nick’s observations) I was …

Runway: John Galliano

Spring 2013 Collection: The runway is modest. Many of the styles are beautiful. The looks were cohesive, although there many are included in this collection.  It’s dark for a spring collection, but personally I appreciate that. It seems to have brought on some controversy, as this collection under the name “John Galliano” was actually designed …

Yohji Yamamoto S/S 2013

Spring is on it’s way. Yohji Yamamoto shows us once again that it’s perfectly okay to say fuck the rules. The show starts off gloomy. Granted there are white looks, but they’re perfectly tattered and over shadowed by the bright red and heavy use of black. It’s sad, tough, and feminine at the same time. …

BRICK & MORTAR JANUARY – FAR OUT VINTAGE

Last week I ran down to Monroe Avenue, new home of one of Rochester’s coolest vintage shops. Far Out Vintage has moved in the past year from it’s previous location in Village Gate. The store (owned and curated by Michelle Gallo) is seriously packed with great stuff, though you’ll want to give yourself a pretty large …

Petite Finds January 2013

  Specimen A – Roberto Cavalli “Serpantine” I’ve been looking for a cold weather scent for months now. I’ve usually relied on family members to give me perfumes as gifts which has led me to sugary sweet scents. This was fine for many years, but lately I’ve been wanting something a bit more adult. Product …

A/W 2012 NU NOIR STYLE DEALS PART 1

This style is my current favorite (my own S/S 2013 collection would probably fit into that category) so here are some choice picks of beautiful garments on sale or (relatively)inexpensive. My first suggestion is to grab this Rick Owen skirt for $573 (Was $1,041). The skirt portion is a rayon/wool blend, made in Italy. I’m …
