New York is currently getting slammed by a snow storm–a little later than most of us expected as just a few days earlier in this week it looked like spring was finally on its way. With all of the snow, sleet and wet I am reminded of some of the fashionable ways celebrities in New [...]

Historic resplendence has never been made more intricate and profound as that of Dolce & Gabbana’s latest collection this season.

This season we have seen a lot of Eastern*-inspired looks make their way down the runway–indeed Marchesa’s entire Fall 2013 collection was influenced by this theme. Whenever I am confronted by a growing trend that borrows from a particular cultural trope I think it is important to consider how one can wear such a trend [...]

Being just 4’11’ and rather well-endowed often leaves me struggling when it comes to new trends.
In shapeless cuts I look as though I have raided my Father’s wardrobe, in drop-waist dresses the waist sits below my knees, maxi dresses trail behind me and body-cons push my chest underneath my chin.
You can no [...]
