More Looks I Found Online

I am enjoying this vintage image, I think its great
This outfit is just too striking, I love the leather shorts, with the bare mid-drift top and the vintage bag, just fabulous
Again shorts in the winter are totally sexy and WEARABLE. The leggings and stockings mix is perfect when you need added warmth and the colors are great for winter/spring.
I just love this dress, the styling could have been better, but I just love this dress.
Again shorts with a jacket or sweater, majorly sexy. And this is the way to wear it.
Apprently she is a dancer, but she is pulling off fashion stylist very well
Again this guy from the last time is great at putting together a hot outfit, and that safety pin time is a addition to the look
Love this look but not the styling.
Everything about this picture is right, I just love it
She so reminds me of a college freshman
This cape jacket, is just so perfect with a pair of shorts or skirt like the model is doing here
I like this...Very enticing

Spring Couture Collections: Chanel

Coco Chanel, she made it it but Karl Lagerfeld is growing it into a empire. To be the multi-designer he is, I love the fact that all the collections he creates for looks nothing alike and are always pulling form different inspirations.

Spring Couture Collections: Givechy

By Tim Blanks
The last time Riccardo Tisci showed a couture collection for Givenchy, the zipper pulls were bones. This season, they were wings. Fashion's favorite goth took flight with a new obsession: Japan. Not the land of obis and geishas, he said, but the Japan of robot toys and the dancer Kazuo Ohno, whose intensely ritualized style of performance, called Butoh, was a huge influence on Tisci's friend, the singer Antony Hegarty. When Ohno died, Antony and the Johnsons performed a tribute concert that so inspired Tisci, the dead man became a sort of muse for the designer. And this was the result. According to Tisci, Ohno provided the romance, the melancholy, and the palette (the color of dried flowers). Robots, meanwhile, influenced the appliqués, the shoes, and the huge hats by Philip Treacy (couple this with Armani last night, and Treacy is clearly the go-to guy for sci-fi headgear).


The detail was as crazily consuming as last season's. One outfit required 2,000 hours of cutting and 4,000 hours of sewing. A single pair of trousers had 90 meters of plissé. On this scale, appreciation of the clothes as they solemnly rotated from hangers in a reverentially hushed salon on the Place Vendôme became an almost academic exercise, like examining works of art in a gallery. Maybe not such a bad analogy, given the extraordinary appliqué on a bolero that crossed a robot's face with a Catholic cross, or the organza that was laser-cut and appliquéd on layers of chiffon and tulle to create a three-dimensional spread of vermilion wings. One gown featured a Japanese crane, again appliquéd, that rose phoenixlike from a cloud of feathers. Massive bird's wings were folded across a sheer skirt. The Swarovski crystals and pearls that were crusted on the bodice of another dress began to pop like fish eyes as the dress moved.

The craft was undeniable, though in the end, like Ohno's favorite dried flowers, the clothes lacked some of the rude life that Tisci stuffed into his recent menswear collection.

Michelle Obama in Alexander McQueen





The First Lady is usually known for great fashion choices, from the day her husband was swore into office she has been giving the fashion of First Ladies from the past a run for their money. Unfortunately this dress isn't exactly the best choice for her. This dress isn't suited for the First Lady's body and shape, it takes away from the glorious healthy body that has helped to whip our nation into exercising and eating healthy. If I was styling Mrs. Obama I would offer the dresses below as options.





SCORE CHANEL, YSL, AND MORE WITH 60% OFF AT FROCK, NYC'S VINTAGE HAVEN!

Ah, vintage. How do we love thee? Let’s just say that in a city of over eight million people, it’s shocking how often you can come across someone else sporting your exact ensemble—unless, of course, you’re wearing vintage. Sure, today’s runway offerings are positively heart-stopping, but it’s hard to beat that feeling of stepping out in a gem from the past that not even your most fashionable friends can connect to Barneys...or anywhere else. The drawback? These oldies but oh-so-goodies can be hard to find, between digging through endless racks, the alterations, and that musty smell—but Refinery29’s got the solution. Meet Frock, New York’s gorgeously curated former vintage showroom that now sells its treasures from a Nolita vintage mecca. When we say mecca, we mean it: Sarah Jessica Parker and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (among many others) make frequent visits.

And so, this week’s Reserve deal is nearly too good to be true: For $55, you’ll receive a voucher worth $145 to spend at Frock—that’s more than 60% off all the Alaias, Chanels, and Saint Laurents you’ll be able to get your hands on. Of course, if $145 isn’t enough for you (don’t forget the Cardin, Dior, and Blass!), you can buy up to four vouchers—which brings your total spending cash to $580 for just $220 out of your own purse. You can use your vouchers all at once or on separate occasions—you can even gift a voucher to a pal, but forgive us if we’re not feeling particularly giving upon browsing this insanely good collection. Be still, our hearts!

Fitted henleys and button downs, trim leathers, and not-so-standard-issue silk and linen jackets round out the selection.

How To Wear Your Shorts In Winter

By: Connie Wang

It might be because we're loathe to get rid of anything, even for just a few months at a time, but we love the idea of wearing our seasonal pieces even if it's unseasonal (and a little inappropriate) to do. For example, our love affair with shorts runs deep and true, and we can't bear to pack 'em away when cold weather hits. But really, there's no reason to ditch your shorts in the winter. We've come up with five Perfect Outfits to show you how to wear shorts during winter without sacrificing warmth nor style.


Leather Weather—Leather shorts during the summer never really made too much sense to us, so bust 'em out now to take advantage of its heavy-duty material. Go crazy with the black fabrics—stack velvets, silks, and wools to make a texturally arresting combo.

Boss Tweed—Too much tweed can make you look like an old dude. Tweed shorts provide just the right amount—just tuck in a sexy button-up, pull up some colored tights, and top it off with a collegiate jacket. Above, clockwise from left:Piera Gelardi, photo by Connie Wang; BDG Quilted Varsity Jacket, 468, available at Urban OutfittersSteven AlanDavidson Top, $188, available at La GarconneNasty GalOpaque Tights, $15, available at Nasty GalFree PeopleSanctuary Tweedy Shorts, $49.95, available at Free People;Costume National Necklace, $137, available at Costume National.

Tiered Drops—Those tiered, flowing, fabric shorts you got during the summer doesn't need to go in hiding. Put in a thick pair of wool tights, tuck in a rich blouse, and top it off with a thick jacket. Think about those shorts as a patterned skirt, and you can probably dream up a hundred more iterations of this outfit.

Hot Pics I Found Online

Fashion must be everything in her LIFE, otherwise somebody need to let it know its her calling
Like come on, could she even not achieve a non-fashionable moment...
I am loving this outfit right now, the stockings are great with the nude bag
Again another case of HOT outfit but not so HOT styling/modeling lol

I kinda like this dress...but this chick isn't wearing it right

There is an odd, alien-like feeling to this image, yet fashionable without seeing the full image I just know it goes from day at the office to night out with the girls. 
He's a singer from Gothenburg, I like his style. Men between the ages of 23 and 35 should consider getting a few of these pieces. 
There is just so much going on in the picture that I love, from the turban to the leather skirt to that Fendi bag if I am not mistaken. 
I love the fact that dude has on a leopard printed tie, it shows that men surely can wear leopard and still look masculine.


Look out for my next list SOON...

Lady GaGa + Mugler = Fashion Genius

Lady Gaga To Preview New Song At Paris Fashion Show

Gaga tweets that she'll give a sneak peek of song at Wednesday's Thierry Mugler show.

Lady Gaga has found the perfect forum to unleash some of her new music. The singer, who has made outrageous fashion a huge part of her identity, tweeted on Monday that she plans to preview some material from her upcoming Born This Way album on Wednesday at a Paris fashion show by Thierry Mugler.
"I'm the musical director for the MUGLER fashion show," she told her little monsters. "I'm remixing/previewing a record on Born This Way, tailored for the show + garments." She did not specify which song she would be previewing.
The news is the latest tease of information about the eagerly awaited album, which is due out on May 23. According to Women's Wear Daily, Gaga got the gig because Mugler's new creative director is Nicola Formichetti, the designer who came up with Gaga's infamous "meat dress" for the MTV VMAs last year.
Formichetti told WWD that Gaga will serve as musical director for one of the most anticipated debuts of Men's Fashion Week, which runs through Sunday. This isn't the first time she's used a Paris runway to launch new music: Gaga premiered "Bad Romance" at Alexander McQueen's showin 2009.
Gaga also tweeted photos of her two 2010 Grammys, which she said were just delivered to her house by her dad. The awards, for Best Electronic/Dance Album (The Fame) and Best Dance Recording ("Poker Face"), immediately took up residence in an important space in the singer's home. "Look what just arrived from last year!" she wrote. "My dad put them on the piano I studied on for 14yrs."
The 24-year-old singer is up for six Grammys at next month's awards show, which will air on February 13, the same day she is set to release the first single from her new album.

More Bad Styling for Chris Breezy...

...Maybe he should have been nicer to Rihanna then he wouldn't be running around looking so crazy. Not everybody can pull off a High Fashion couture look and Chris your stylists did it again, he/she or they is making you look...

Now if the shirt was tucked into a pair of black pants and he had on a tie or ascot I would have said this picture was a success but since those articles of clothing aren't present again Chris this is a #FAIL
