Denim Days

I’ve always been a fan of denim and lately I seem to be digging it a lot.  Working in a creative field allows for the dress code to be a bit more relaxed.  Whether I’m in a rush or not feeling my best, I tend to count on the most comfortable denim in my wardrobe to get me through the day.  Among my go-to slacks and shirts, I’m looking forward to rocking my favorite denim jackets this season.  A blast from the past, the runways were full of them replacing the basic blazer.

Mr. Moto

Motorcycle jackets have earned themselves the nickname “moto” since becoming a staple season after season.  If you’re looking to add a bit of badassness to your wardrobe, this is the piece that will surely make you feel like your living on the edge.  From Givenchy to Armani, the biker-inspired leather jackets were being shown over all the runways again last February, but with a bit of a makeover.  From different colors to innovative detailing, designers decided to give their take on the edgy skin.   If you’re planning to purchase, I suggest investing.  Yes, you will pay more now, but will have it for years to come to enjoy.   With only 55 days left until Christmas, it might not be a bad idea to ask Santa to add one to your list.  Just a helpful thought!

Indian Summer

I’ve been loving lately that traces of summer seem to still be lingering here in the Northeast. With temperatures allowing us to extend the use of our summer staples just a little longer, I’m not completely ready to dive into full fall attire.  Keeping in touch with summer, yet starting to call on fall, marrying these two seasons when it comes to your look can sometimes be tricky.  A simple tip to avoid feeling completely out of season? Mix and match your accessories!  It also doesn’t hurt to keep things neutral for a seasonless touch.

Zana Bayne F/W 2012 Presentation

Last week, I stopped by the Zana Bayne F/W 2012 presentation here in New York to check out some really cool leather accessories.  I wasn’t to familiar with the line but from the looks of it, it seemed as if Zana Bayne’s pieces have been featured in high gloss fashion magazines like Vogue Italia & Japan, i-D, Interview, and on famous celebs like Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Ciara.  Intrigued enough from this information alone, I quickly popped in to meet with the designer herself to check out her lastest collection.  Accompanied by my photographer friend Andrew Day, he captured some great shots of the event for Stylesource.

A series of shots that greeted us as we walked into the event.

This was one my favorite pictures of the series I snapped for Instagram.  I loved the chrome accents set against the white leather.  Very chic!

Another shot I snapped for Instagram, I feel in love with this harness wheel on the wall.  It’s literally eight harnesses connected together to create this work of art.  If you look closely,  the back of each harness depicts the head of skulls resembling Dia De Lo Muertos Mexican decorations, inspiration behind much of the collection from what I’m told.   I would totally rock one of these over a simple white V-neck tee-Just saying!

Myself & designer Zana Bayne posing behind the really cool harness wheel!

A shot of myself and another photographer friend.  She was wearing one of Zana Bayne’s leather belts over this simple white dress.  Style tip: A great way to dress up an ordinary dress is to belt it!   In this instance, she went from a LWD (Little White Dress) to a peplum style with just a buckle.  Huge trend right now!

A great mix of fashion goers in the industry and supporters of the designers. Many people were even wearing her designs.  Always great to see!

We had to get a shot of these two.  I loved her metal collar necklace and this gentleman was literally covered in tattoos head-to-toe.  I would love to pick his brain and ask the meaning behind each one.
