8th Annual Indepdendent Handbag Designer Awards

With less than a week away, the preliminary judging panel will be meeting here in New York this coming Sunday to determine finalists for the 8th Annual IHDA (Independent Handbag Designer Awards).  I’m happy to report that I will be on the panel this year, yet again.  I can not wait to see what designers have in-store for us. Along with discovering new names, what tends to really excite me are those who create beautifully crafted bags that bring originality to the market.  If you haven’t entered, there’s still time to apply.  Curious to see which bags standout?  Follow the #HandbagAwards, myself and the others via Instagram & Twitter to stay up-to-date.

#NYFW F/W 2014 Kicks off!

It seems like yesterday we were just getting a glimpse at S/S 2014 previews, and in less than 24 hours, the famous fashion gates at Lincoln Center will reopen yet again.  I don’t know about you, but with the type of winter we’ve been having, I’m not really looking forward to another season with lots of layering just yet. With that said, for those of you who will be glued to your computer screen all week long, don’t forget to Like & Follow The styleTV Channel to get your all-access pass to go backstage with our very own Josh McBride.  In the meantime, check out & share this cool video we put together for you to get even more excited about.

#Mylatestobsession-Shauns Shades

I recently checked out Shauns Shades S/S 2014 collection at The Modern at MOMA.  Raising my hand to admit I have an obsession with sunglasses, I fell in love with their Earlsferry in a matte camo green finish. Not only did they fit my face perfectly, but the Carl Zeiss lenses made my view picture perfect.  The LA-based eyewear brand also gives back in a big way with their “Give Sight” commitment.  When you purchase a pair, it triggers one more pair of glasses to be given to someone in need.  To learn more, check out styleTV’s recent interview with the designer Shaun Paterson and supermodel Chanel Iman here.

Dapper Dudes-2014 Golden Globes

While most men played it safe on last night’s red carpet, there were a few risk-takers amongst all the soot.  From McConaughey’s forest green velvet tux, to Usher’s diamond encrusted brooch, the following actors weren’t afraid to show off their stylish side.  Playing the dapper character quite nicely, they all receive (or their stylist) a Golden Globe in the category for “Best Dressed Dude.”
