Bold Fashion in Dark Times

Yesterday I wore a bright sweater with “Gucci” vibes, and distressed denim. Today, after reading the headlines, I would not choose to wear color. I would want to wear black. I was at Bloomingdales supposing their efforts to fight breast cancer,  and I bought two items where the proceeds went generously to that cause. I have included a shopping collage, for those of us who want the shopping distraction!

XOXO, Elle

DapperQ: A Gender Fluid Runway Show @ Brooklyn Museum

I am an independent blogger as you know. This year I thought long and hard about which shows I wanted to attend and cover. ( Yes, belatedly still more to come) When I was invited to the dapperQ production featuring gender fluid style, with seven designers , I thought, YES!

This show was one of the most diverse runway shows ever, and on my blog, as in my life, I value inclusiveness.

I value that each of us feels comfortable in his or her skin, irrespective of sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, gender, and skin color.  xoxo, Elle
