Earlier today as I was indulging myself, yet again, with some of the most brilliant fashion blogs in the world, I found a link to a blog called Tokyo Fashion. Tokyo Fashion is “an online magazine devoted to clothing, accessories and style in Tokyo, Japan,” and if you know anything about fashion in Japan,...Read more →
The world is buzzing, loudly, about all things Gatsby. Unless you have been living in a cave you probably know that this Baz Luhrmann directed remake of the novel and Robert-Redford-starring film of the same name, is set to have a spectacular opening weekend at the box office. E! News is projecting The Great Gatsby to have a debut north of $40 million. We’ll have to wait and see what Leo’s star power can do these days!
As with any epic movie spectacle, rich with music and fashion, the rest of the world can’t help but want to be a part of it too. Addicted to fashion bloggers lately, every day I am finding more and more fantastic articles written about the fashion of the Gatsby era and ways to infuse its sensibility into your current wardrobe. I especially liked this one from Refinery29.com From tennis whites to drop wasted dresses to graphic prints and deco jewelry, the Gatsby era brings with it an excitement and freshness that the world hasn’t seen in quite some time. From the feminine feathered embellishments to the shift dresses and t-strap shoes, it’s quite easy to embrace the trend. Oh, and let’s not forget the FRINGE!
While the influence for our spring collection is about 20 years past the Gatsby era, the look and feel of it is decidedly glamorous. During the time that the Gatsby’s were partying in the Hampton’s, the west coast was beginning to embrace what we now refer to as Old Hollywood glamour. When looking at all of these amazing Gatsby inspired fashions I keep thinking how our designs have just enough of that flavor to help you embrace your inner Gatsby as well.
Sometimes I wake up and just want to bring it all back to basics….but I can’t. No matter how hard I try, I always need to find at least one thing to make my look POP! I am always combing fashion magazines and my favorite online sites for the latest hair and makeup trends and today I found something that I L O V E! The UK Edition of Glamour magazine online has an amazing 42-page spread of spring makeup trends, and page 18, Neon! Neon! stopped me in my tracks. The image they provide is a beautiful blond lass with lovely light blue eyes, barely a stitch of makeup, and BRIGHT PINK LIPS! They look phenomenal and I need to find that lipstick! It made me think about a look we are currently showing in our online store that features a skirt we call “Desire.” Our model, dressed in the simplicity of a cream sleeveless top and the Desire, a long, black linen, wrap belted skirt, is already looking complete with gorgeous red lips, but now I would LOVE to see them finished in Neon Pink!
