SHOP IN SPITE OF HURRICANE SANDY

Posted on November 3, 2012

      Hurricane Sandy has impacted the lives of New Yorkers, New Jerseyites, those from Connecticut and others from all over the Northeast. I would also like to take this time to acknowledge those who have been impacted by this Hurricane in Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba as well. After watching the telethon last night which featured Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Steven Tyler, etc. I thought that there had to be a way to donate money online as well. I started searching some of my favorite online stores and here’s a list of a few stores who are donating money to the Red Cross in an attempt to aid in disaster relief… If you’re going to spend money, you might as well spend it on…

RELAUNCH

Posted on November 2, 2012

I have ended my work with Object Collectors Item and will, once more, be focusing on my own work here on YOU ARE WHO YOU WEAR. Despite my not having actively blogged on here for over two years, I still get plenty of “hits” and comments – you all are a delight, thank you! I’ve had such a wonderful few years with Object and I will never forget what a privilege it was to work for a fashion house like Object. Thank you to those of you who presented me with the opportunity. I will truly never forget it. It’s been a hectic few years, folks! I just moved to New York City a few months ago and I am now contemplating a move…

10 Questions for Audrey Cantwell

Posted on January 27, 2010

I learned of Canadian fashion designer Audrey Cantwell completely by mistake. I was simply surfing the very popular website, Etsy.com when I stumbled upon her Etsy store “blackmarketbaby” and as many designers before her, I absolutely had to contact Ms. Cantwell regarding her designs. Below I have featured my favorite Audrey Cantwell designs as well as ten questions regarding them and her process of designing fashion. Take a look: 1. Your collections seem to have a dark themes. For example, your Howl collection includes a great amount of leather and studs and your most recent collection Salem features a lot of black colors and drapes. Why is that and how did you come up with the names for your collections? I`ve always had a…

Rachel Zoe for QVC

Posted on September 4, 2009

Rachel Zoe can’t dress herself but she sure can dress others. Featured above is a look at Rachel Zoe’s collection for QVC which includeds great jewels, faux furs (I’m sure that PETA will be satisfied) and eye-catching evening bags. Prices range from $32-$130. The pieces are an simple and affordable way to add some  spice to your basics this fall. I am sure everything will sell out quickly so get your credit cards ready! The collection will make its debut on QVC.com September 12th at 8pm EST. When I traveled to SoHo to interview Iris Loeffler last month, Ms. Loeffler took me to one of her favorite shoe stores, United Nude. I was instantly impressed with their designs – especially the Stealth design (featured below). I have featured my…

Fall Forward

Posted on August 23, 2009

I am writing this from Rhode Island where temperatures are well above 90 degrees – I’m going to the beach tomorrow, except if it is supposed to rain as I have been told. I’m slowly loosing my mind and I can’t wait for the fall, as many of  you already know since I’ve been writing about fall fashions since July. Thankfully there’s only 6 weeks left of this weather and then I can go from complaining about the heat to complaining about the cold. Thigh high boot -Michael Antonio/endless.com $69.00, Yellow bubble skirt – Alloy.com, 78.00, Nude platform – Aldoshoes.com, $90.00, Polka-dot dress – Topshop.com, $80.00, Tiered mini-skirt – H&M, $30.00, Belt – Forever21.com, $9.80, Opague tights – hue.com – $12.00, wetlook leggings and…

The Louie Vuitton Don Kicks it.

Posted on July 1, 2009

The much talked about sneakers designed by Kanye West for Louis Vuitton became available today – but good luck getting your paws on them, they’re already sold out! I wonder who bought these 900 something dollar sneakers, during this type of economy? West makes great music but he is your typical overconfident male which makes him annoying. Equally annoying is it the fact that he is suddenly part of the fashion world. However, I was surprised by is the fact that his sneakers for LV are actually quite nice (minus the price tag). Take a look: Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring 2010 I can’t help but to think the footwear below is really cool. I don’t care if they’re designed for men, I wouldn’t mind…

The First Lady of The Dance Floor

Posted on June 28, 2009

Lady Gaga is absolutely obnoxious. That’s why I like her and to think that she used to be a songwriter ie. someone who worked behind the scenes. Today, Lady G is one of the biggest pop stars in the world, she gets to wear leotards in public and is an artist that no one would recognize if she were to walk down the street in regular clothing and no make-up. She’s smart and by far one of my favorite artists. Below are photos of The First Lady of The Dance Floor from a feature in Maxim Magazine. Take a look: Get the look for less: I highly doubt anyone but Lady Gaga would wear a leotard and fishnets in public. But who knows? Some…
