The Best & Worst of the Decade According to Moi

I decided with all the dedication to the first 10 years of the millennium I would create The Best & Worst of the Decade According to Moi. Disagree all you would like, but I am right on many accounts when it comes to fashion. Rather than each year, I decided to make some categories to express my outlook on the past decade.

Let’s Begin:

On a good note I would like to start with some impeccable CONSISTENT trend- setters that I tend to point to for inspiration.

Olsens- Top the List, No Doubt, No Explanation.

Vanessa Trainia- I’m a little envious of her wardrobe, but that’s what happens when mommy is Danielle Steele.

Kate Bosworth-I don’t know if she has a stylist, but I can show you about 20 pictures of outfits I love.

Tilda Swinton- Not my age bracket, but a definite sophisticate and muse.

Model Culture is a new trend we are seeing. From many obnoxious years of celeb after celeb enticing our universe, models and socialites are the new celebrity and honestly I couldn’t be happier.

I’m going to call this category Obnoxiousism.

Lindsey Lohan makes rosacea look good. Get off the drugs girl.

Sorry Lady Gaga but I don’t believe in pop couture. You are a success I will admit, but it makes me a little nauseas.

Lastly I want to credit those who I admire. It’s half incognito and half public fame.

Anna Wintour-Editor-in-Chief of Vogue. Bitchtastic, but a little advice: American Vogue is by no means top notch right now.

Derek Blasberg- The talented writer with an entourage of models and socialites.

Grace Coddington-The Creative Director who deserves more credit

Carine Roitfield-Editor–in Chief of French Vogue. I wouldn’t be surprised if Anna Wintour was a little jealous of her photo shoots.

Patrick Demarchelier-A picture is worth a thousand words and his always do.

I could go on and on. So many fabulous individuals and others who have sucked the big one.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Don’t worry; I’ll have more new opinions in 2010


Color Block

I don’t remember the last time I could say I was relaxed. This last week should have been relaxing, but I stressed not having anything to do. I think my mind loves to mess with me and therefore I’m always thinking of the next thing on my agenda. Lately, I have found looking at new editorials very satisfying. It always is, but the change in seasonal clothes styled in a photo shoot is always exhilarating. I love how fashion is always ahead. There’s some sort of power in it. Exhibit A: the bright colors in this fashion spread in Vogue Nippon is “shocking” coming out of a New Yorker’s Black Winter Coffin.

Fashionistas find it easy to attack trends from the forefront, which is why I am coming out of hibernation and taking a pop of color to the next level for my transition into spring 2010. Did you ever think that maybe a certain color brings on your stress? I’m hoping my new neon wardrobe will bring some lightness into the cloudy city and a fabulous start to the New Year.

It’s a New Decade!

I remember when it was about to be the year 2000 and I was scared of the world BLOWING up.

I was 12 and it didn’t.

And You Thought I Didn't Play Sports...

This is for you Daddy.

Fashion can be SO diverse.


Whip It!

It's like my childhood, fashion and RoLLer blades (I was a 90's baby)

Shit, you guys, I have never had straight friends before!

Not only did she star in a couple of my Favorite movies, she also starred in my all-time favorite:

Girl, Interrupted.

Brittany Murphy will be missed.

Fashion Roadkill

Disturbing & Amusing.

Obvious Beauty Nonetheless.


Like Butter Baby, Like Butter

I’m totally in LOVE with this photo shoot from W Magazine. Alex White (Stylist) did a magnificent job putting together this inspirational shoot. The COLOR coordination and cohesive look are sTunning. The Spring 2010 runway shows had a lot more influence over me than I thought. I’m mixing up my wardrobe to get a head start. I’m all about the pastels, pops of color and the butter flow of the silhouettes.

I Love clothes.

A little too much I must add.

It’s all for the good of the $Economy$!

Truly Outrageous

Lately, I’ve been very caught up in the tRibaL theme. Sadly, I’m finding very little out there due to being ahead in fashion. I’m stuck on Spring 2010 and ready to see these collections in the market. I’ve delayed posting this photo spread, but I am still in Love with the colors and the “Mix NMatch” outfits. It’s the perfect mix of in your face and behind the scenes. I’ve been doing my best to purchase a little more Color, but Black just always calls my name.

So I wouldn’t call this tRibaL, but more of my transition period till spring comes along.

I’m really just asking for some Proenza Schouler.

It’s like Jem meets Rainbow Brite in the Vogue Closet.

Let Me Tell You How I Really Feel

I know, I've been M.I.A. for way to long, but I promise, I'm back on my game. It's been a crazy two weeks. I'll spare you the details and share some exciting happenings. As a Design student, my final garment was chosen to be in the Annual Mid-Season Preview at Parsons. The theme was sustainable fashion. (By the way, just because it's saving our planet, eco-consciouis clothing does not save the $$$economy$$$, keep that in mind). This was a 4 day exhibit showcasing graduating students work. I should have shared this sooner so more of you could've have gone to the exhibit, but I did take some photos for your enjoyment.

My Dress and I

I attended a reception for the exhibit. Every year they bring in a guest speaker. Last semester it was Betsey Johnson, a true inspiration to those wanting to make it in the business. This year they had a priest (imagine my face questionable and a little bit nauseated). Father Andrew O'Conner is all of sudden a designer of eco-friendly clothing made of organic cotton. His speech was not motivating and he was not at all friendly. I can honestly tell you no one was listening to him preach. The few words I did hear went through one ear and out the other. BORING. Betsey Johnson and now a priest. I don't care that Anna Wintour is a fan. Anna: this is not going to give you good press. What gets me the most is there are hardly any pictures of his designs. What I have seen is by no mean "in Vogue." Look at what students at Parsons are producing and then explain to me why this priest is gaining unnecessary fame.

Thanks for letting me vent.
Anyone one else got an opinion?
I'll stick to mine, but I'd love to hear yours.

I'm back with a Vengeance.
