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…

Wangtastic + Steve Maddeness

Posted on October 12, 2009

I am not certain how much Alexander Wang’s sunglasses retail for but I am certain they cost more than $14.80 which is what Bleu Dame’s version costs. To purchase the pair in which is designed by Bleu Dame, click here. STEVE MADDENESSI’ve been traveling all weekend but I just had to show you these boots from Steve Madden (who by the way is being sued by Alexander McQueen. For more on that story click here). They’re incredible and cost a mere $159.95 which actually isn’t even that inexpensive but when compared to the $900 Christian Louboutin one can not complain. The boots are available for pre-order here. Sources: elle.com, stevemadden.com, fashionista.com, bleudame.com

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…

“I don’t know who invented high heels but women owe him a lot”

Posted on July 25, 2009

I don’t know why Marilyn Monroe stated the quote above because who knows if the person who invented the shoe was indeed a male? It could easily have been a woman. Just take a look at the footwear from Ms. Donna Karan below – she is a  brilliant designer. Take a look: Citizens of Humanity I am also intriqued with Citizens of Humanity’s lookbook. The relaxed, must-have-been-inspired-by Erin Wasson feel is great. Take a look: On a different note… is at it again! Take a look: Snake bracelet, $5.00 Family tee, $24.00 These items featured above are available at Marc by Marc Jabobs stores. Also… Most of  the fall footwear from Alloy.com is incredible. I really like Alloy because they always have my size…

The Olsen’s Are Inducted

Posted on July 22, 2009

I’ve expressed before that I am not a fan of Mary-Kate or Ashley Olsen. I don’t care for their acting nor do I care for their weird hobo/I’m-super-rich-but-I-like-to-look- homeless fashion statements. However, I really do appreciate their collections the Row and Elizabeth & James. In fact, those are the only celebrity clothing lines that I actually  continuously care for. Mary-Kate and Ashley have managed to stay out of their own ad campaigns for the collections unlike fellow celebrity designers such as Jessica Simpson and Avril Lavigne which I find refreshing too. It seems that The CFDA (The Council of Fashion Designers) does recognize this as well because the sisters are among 31 designers  (along with designers such as Alexander Wang and Jason Wu) to be…
