STREET STYLE: Who are you wearing?!

Part of being a blogger, a large part, is staying totally nonchalant and vaguely annoyed at the wave of street style paparazzi covering every corner of NYFW. To avoid that, we took the back alleys. It didn’t work.

PAPARAZZI: MOLLY!!! HOITO!!! WHO ARE YOU WEARING???!!!

MOLLY: Veronica Sheaffer for Veronica Sheaffer custom fringe top. (Also H&M skirt, Charlotte Russe Shoes, and black socks I stole from a shoe store. They were the try on socks, so I think I was allowed to?)

PAPARAZZI: DID YOU DRINK ALL THOSE COFFEES?

MOLLY: Yes. I’m a blogger.

PAPARAZZI: VERONICA!!! HOITO!!! WHO ARE YOU WEARING?!?!

VERONICA: Veronica Sheaffer in Veronica Sheaffer for Veronica Sheaffer jumpsuit. (And vintage Levi’s jacket, Forever 21 Scuba Heels.)

PAPARAZZI: Googley Eyes.

VERONICA: Blinky Eyes.

NY Fashion Week S RTW 2018 Review: Day 3

What started off as an action packed day came to a screeching halt when the world fell away, the front rows faded back, and the bright lights rose over the only thing that mattered: DELPOZO.

I was lucky enough to walk the first time in the oooOOOOnnnllly pink woven bow. (Only there is surrounded by pink twinkle hearts and blinky eyes). Pink and red (red orange?) is all over the runways this year and it’s about time. Baby pink and blood red is my favorite color combination after matte black with flat black. ANYWAYS, Delpozo. Magic.

V took her turn in one of her own classic favorites – layered mesh and nettings dotted with crystals and paillettes. And doesn’t she look like a dream in this dream? Second question: Does anyone want me to make them raffia slides in neon colors?

If it’s not shoulder pads this year, and I’m still buying shoulder pads to sew into all my clothes, then a tulle puff shoulder ruffle will suffice. Am I too old for pink tulle? Is it too ten year old at ballet class? I think the slash of neon orange eye liner tempers it and that’s good enough for me. These flats would be a boon for my old knees, but y’all know I can’t do slides. I’ll make them for you all instead.

You have a favorite show yet? (Besides for Delpozo?)

NY Fashion Week S 2018 RTW Review: Day 1

New York Fashion Week. IS. HERE.

And, once again, we are coming to you with live coverage FROM the runways!

As of this moment, Rihanna is winning Fashion Week. To get this out of the way, though, 100% NO to thong heels. Never. My toes are still killing and it’s only Tuesday. Otherwise, all the YES to the rest. Can I wear a french cut bikini bottom? No. Will I try? Yes. Fanny packs, mesh, scuba and sheer plastics. Yes, yes, yes, yes. Get rid of all your Lulu Lemons and Old Navy clearance athletic junk and get some of this. Fenty x Puma, gimmie more. 

Hot pink suede booties and layered bikinis for the win. Thanks for having me, Ri!

Has anyone tried curly bangs yet? Besides Taylor Swift? Can you tell me how it went?

I had to sprint across town, skipping avocado toast and juggling all seven of my coffees, to make Tom Ford.  But when he hasn’t shown FOR A YEAR, you show up when he does. Did not disappoint. It felt similar to last season’s Saint Laurent – Extra. In a world where normcore is still hanging on and we all have a closet full of high waisted denim to go with our perfect tees and cos sweatshirts (a look I still love, no doubt), give me something ELSE to put in my closet! Specifically, give me my first look, this barely a dress mini.

I don’t want to wear anything this fall without shoulder pads after wearing these squares down the runway. (And now I know where Kim K has been getting all her looks the past couple months.) MORE french cut bikinis. Basically, the take away so far is I will shopping for shoulder pads and french cut bikinis in bulk. Perhaps the shoulder pads will allow for the bikini bottoms to look not terrible and is there such a thing as a bikini top with shoulder pads? I digress.

Two of my favorite looks show jumpsuits are still a thing, and that’s just fine with me. ONLY if they have shoulder pads though.

Leaving TF and after pounding the runways on some boring AF shows, finally! SOMETHING OTHER THAN FANCY TSHIRT DRESSES (get it together, AWANG.). Silky dresses, all the pastels, sprinkles of texture, ALL the orange lipstick. Sies Marjan has my eyes blinking hearts.

Easy but not BOOORRRRINNNNGGGG. Why is that the hardest thing to do? I may organize my closet by color and only start monochromatic looks. Shoes included, these matching lil platform heels tie it all up in perfect bows.

Back to my edgy but modern and also totally charming boutique hotel so I can grab an hour of sleep, another half dozen cups of coffee and catalog tomorrows street style looks!

 

NY FASHION WEEK F/W 2017 RTW RECAP: DAY 4

So. Tired. My very old, wrinkled skin can barely stand another day of pulling and primping and painting and needling and taping (you know those weird tabs that pull your temples back into your hair?).

(Actually we need to talk more about those. Has anyone tried them??)

Let’s get started.

DELPOZO CAN DO NO WRONG. The details are extraordinary, the fabrics, the volume, the beading, the JEWELED BODY STOCKINGS? Everything is perfect. I wasn’t even supposed to walk this show, but forced my way on stage and stripped the models down right then and there. You didn’t hear about it because, as at the Yeezy Season 5 show, everyone was forbidden to document the event or participate in social media. You know, JUST like Yeezy. These two shows and all of the clothes and art and design are JUST THE SAME. These are all selfies from my camera on a tripod with a timer, if you’re curious. We bloggers know never to go anywhere without a camera on a tripod with a timer!

Seriously though, jeweled body stockings with hoods will be very Veronica 2017. Not waiting for fall/winter though ugh. Also have been thinking a lot about sweeping maxi dresses lately – as in, I’ve been thinking about them constantly for the last decade, but have yet to buy one for myself. Maybe this is the year of my maxi dress??? Why have I denied myself for so long??

Remember when I told you that that beaded lace satin lounging pajama from Elie Saab was basically my inner monologue in real life form? Well if that personality was unavailable, this patent leather turbaned, so many zippers person would emerge to finish the job. Thanks so much for the opportunity, Chiara Boni La Petite Robe. The bellhop luggage rack was a nice touch, but there’s nothing more annoying than being hit in the heels by an empty, unruly cart. Just, you know, future notice is all.

And then onto Marchesa, where these are all the things I like always. The lavender is a naked dress – thank goodness we’re still doing THAT – and the peach is exactly like what I’m wearing right now in my hotel room! Special but casual but hand-beaded and formal, but nightgown-inspired, but definitely not for sleeping, but so comfortable, but not. You know?

Isn’t it so funny when the designer clearly imagined a look on someone with a much lower hairline, and no matter what you do, the clothes just make your face look bizarre and squat and also grossly over-sized? So funny. Happens ALL the time. Anyway, loved both of the looks, but didn’t love my face in either, so … no go?
