NYFW a la ‘burbs

There was a pity party happening in the suburbs. 
Fashion blogger and style editor couldn’t go to NYFW. Too many commitments in my other role as a mom. 
Luckily Vogue.com, instagram and the grooviest online fashion feeds allow me the super human combination of being super mama and fashion obsessed blogger all in a day’s work!


Truly all my technological fashion feeds are in direct thanks to Christopher Bailey, the CEO and design director of Burberry.

Christopher changed fashion forever when he permitted a live feed of his fashion show in February 2010.  Before this landmark event fashion shows were strictly for buyers and editors and certainly NOT for suburban moms!

The greatest luxury is being able to watch live video feeds of the shows (hello phenomenal new playlists!!!), translate the fashions into suburban mom-speak and write posts for the blog, news sites and magazine, all while running the corporation of home, husband and children!


This was Alexander Wang’s gift to his New York audience, along with his return to street wear FIERCE collection, British rapper Lady Leshurr.

Seriously add it to your workout playlist NOW!

Other designers tapped it back in the form of nineties artists, Willie Nelson and of course using the appropriately titled “begging for threads” tee hee!

Tune in tomorrow for a posting dedicated to the simplicity of Spring 2016 Fashion.  Imagine that!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Happy Happy Weekend!!!!!!

Gucci won a $144.2 MILLION settlement against the fakers!  Online fakes to be exact.  The judge also demanded that over 150 url’s be given up as well, so that the online businesses that sold over 20 different versions of Gucci bags can no longer operate.  Take That!!!!!  (pic outside of the Gucci Museo in Firenze!)

Change is a good thing, even when sudden.  Moda Operandi’s creative director, Taylor Tomasi Hill, has left the company.  Rumor has it that the departure was because she didn’t get her promised share in the company.  Happily, the goddess of all things Moda Operandi, the UBER wondrous Lauren Santo Domingo is still making sure all the prettiest things from runways make it onto the site for dedicated online fashion addicts (like me!).

Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s designer and Chief Creative Officer, has been named Chief Executive Officer – CCO & CEO and a mad plaid designing machine!  Christopher is also an internet GENIUS who first invited regular shoppers into the guarded universe of runway shows by streaming the show onto the company’s website.  Investors did not seem too excited about the selection and Burberry’s shares closed down.  I for one am quite excited to see what else comes forth from Brit Boy Genius!

Enjoy the weekend  & wear heels to leaf peep!
