Former Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designers Get Featured

A few days ago former Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designers JLINSNIDER and Michael Wiernicki became featured designers and local retailers at this year’s Charleston Fashion Week. They have always been personal favorites of mine since I first saw them both present as emerging designers. I am so excited to see the progress that they have […]

Charleston Fashion Week 2012 Day One

Hey everybody! I’m back at Charleston Fashion Week again. Last night I went to see what the Emerging Designers Competition had to offer. The video below shows my personal faves out of the bunch. Samantha Michele Hyman showed a Downton Abbey type collection that was cute, practical, and very pretty. I met her after the […]

Think (Faux) Mink!

Seriously $3000 for a fur vest? Get outta here. I’m a huge advocate for saving a buck or two, and I know I’m extremely positive when I say I’m not paying thousands of dollars to rock a piece of animal skin on my back. Especially knowing the harm it does to those poor animals. However, […]

Washington Roberts-New Designer

I met Washington Roberts at a nice little industry tweet-up (set up by Ope) at Taj in NYC . He showed me some pictures of his work and I was blown away. Washington is very young, yet his work is really mature and sophisticated. His pieces are made with lush fabrics for the women who […]

It’s Shark Week!

It’s Shark Week, and I was browsing around looking for a new desktop background for this laptop because it was recently gifted to me by him and I haven’t “personalized it yet”. But as I was doing so I came across a pair of Miu Miu knockoffs on a very small supplier’s store and decided […]

The Final V Mag Preview

I found out via twitter and Musings of a Fatshionista that the final V Magazine preview was out. Please check out Christina’s blog for the rest of the pictures from The Kaiser’s shoot, and check out her commentary on Karl Lagerfeld. I totally agree with her. It is extremely crazy for him to criticize fat […]

Twitter Has Now Been Deemed Popular Culture

DUH!!!! Twitter is everywhere. It has popped up in some idiotic “song” called LOL smiley face. I hate that song. Spare yourselves now and try not to look it up. Now twitter has infiltrated fashion. There a ton of fashion people on twitter, so it makes a little sense to put a piece of Twitter […]

Where The Wild Things Are
