This, I Need: McQ Intarsia Cardigan

January 26, 2009

Although it feels like Winter’s winding down (what with Spring shipments and Fashion Week coming up), I get an awful sense that we still have a few more months of cold ahead of us…

To help make the bitterness a bit easier to stand, I’m planning on pairing this cardi with my Spring purchases. With prints, the look is very MJ SS2009, and with solids, you’ll look every bit the perfect neo-Dude (more on that later).

This, I Need: Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 Collection

January 22, 2009

Have you ever seen anything more perfect? Proenza Schouler has hit my sartorial mood right on the head; lots of bruised tones (with a hint of metallics), varied textures, and a round-but-fitted shape. It reminds me a ton of the Parisian silhouette happening right now, but with a nice NYC slouch. I am sooooo going to be this girl next Fall.

This, I Need: Ports 1961 Cap Dress

January 21, 2009

I am in a seriously Spring state of mind. Witness, this dress:

Have you ever seen a garment that more perfectly screams “I’m ready for an afternoon of croquet and Mint Juleps while surrounded by perfectly manicured lawns and just-bloomed tulips?” Seriously.

This, I Need: MAC Liquid Liner

January 16, 2009

I’m on an eternal quest to find the best liquid liner; this one’s great for a nice, thin cat-eye or a thick blackout a la Margot Tenenbaum.

This, I Need: Jonathan Saunders Roley Dress

November 10, 2008

I’ve decided that this dress would make the perfect holiday get-up: flouncy, festive, and showy. It’s like the prettiest packaging you can think of — for you!
