#NTFW- #WIW & #Streetstyle Vibes

Hello loves! Today, I  am featuring the anatomy of a #NYFW outfit, that represents slow fashion,  and the eclectic mix that is my signature style. Much of it is up-cycled. Also included are some fun shots of the attendees of the shows,  and some colorful street style looks!

Enjoy!

Wishing you a happy weekend!

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

NYFW features A Gala Fundraiser For Cancer

In its annual Official #NYFW fundraising Gala, FASHION, FUN & POP BY RICHIE RICH, the Carol Galvin Foundation presented a fabulous Broadway styled evening of fashion, celebrity and music. Meredith O'Connor performed as well as Aaron Carter.  MIMI Tran was the lead designer and her feminine and form fitting pieces drew enthusiastic applause.  What a fabulous night, and a great way to support breast cancer victims.

#NYFW / My Bustling City/ #WIW

We find ourselves a bit past the mid-point of #NYFW. I have enjoyed many runway shows, but was especially enthusiastic about the Runway Gala hosted by The Carol Galvin Foundation to benefit cancer. This post just is a preview of the shows to come, and a bit of a #WIW post as well.  More to come!

Stay safe from the storms! Sending love from New York City!

Beautiful: Claire Pettibone Couture Bridal Gowns

The word beautiful is a sweet but far reaching word. It can be an object, person, piece of art , or natural scene, such as a landscape or sunset. If it pleases the senses , it is called beautiful.  The word leaps to mind reflexively, and often, and we are so much richer for taking … Continue reading Beautiful: Claire Pettibone Couture Bridal Gowns
