Mad Hatter

Ever since Pharrell’s hat became a household name, I’ve been on the hunt to find something like it.  A fan of both his music and style, this is one trend that I just had to imitate.  After looking all over the internet for something similar, my cart (and head) still remained empty.  However, while out and about in Williamsburg recently, I struck gold at a nearby boutique.  I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and plan to rock this look all season long.

What men really want

when they head out to shop?  That was the question posed to me recently by Fashion Blogger Sierra Leone.  With more and more focusing not just on their portfolio, but also their wardrobe, shopping isn’t just a pit stop anymore.  Men want the total package and aren’t willing to settle for any cheap imitations. To find out what designers and retailers are doing to accommodate this growing interest, read more of my comments here.

Slither into Style this Spring

As we slither into the spring weather we’ve all so anxiously been waiting for, I can’t help but notice the streets of New York starting to bloom with vibrant colors and bold patterns.  Shedding our winter looks, it seems like everyone is more than ready to show off the latest seasons trends.  Speaking of trends, you can count on seeing lots of is snakeskin print.  It was a favorite amongst many designers collections, and is a great way to give a pop to any dull or boring look.   Accessories magazine agrees and put together some of their favorite finds including the Chelsea tote by WM Design House.
