Since I work at a Boutique that carries Free People, I eagerly await the monthly Free People lookbook, with their new merchandise for the month. I know it comes out the beginning of ever month and the minute it does, I obsess over their styles and the theme they inspire it around. After i cut out all the pictures and tape them to my wall, I call my boss and ask her to order it for me, so I can get the looks I love for wholesale price. This way I feel like I look great, for half the price! Love me some free peeps! :)

LF is a boutique that is growing in popularity, while there is a few located in New York City it is hard to find them elsewhere and they don’t have an online shop even though they are highly in demand. Trunk Shows are common, but LF is doing something different by turning it into an event as well. They are having their trunk show at a university since their target market are college females and they are giving 10% of their proceeds to Pi Beta Phi Foundation. So while you can shop LF’s new spring collection April 8th, you can also help raise money for a great cause.

As most people probably are going to do, I picked the Chanel show. Although this hasn’t been my favorite Chanel show, I definitely thought it was the most creative and different out of all of the shows. I’m not exactly sure why they decided to do this though, I definitely don’t think i’m strutting down the runway, or what a fabulous, fashionable moment this is, when I make my weekly Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods trip. But hey, it’s Karl Lagerfeld and it’s Chanel, they can basically do no wrong.

Visual merchandising is as important as all the other aspects, we learn this in class and take notice to it every day in our consumer lives. I chose Louis Vuitton because I have never been and will most likely never be a person who likes their bags, but still, their visual merchandising I had to admit was decent, when I found myself walking by their window and stopped to look. “Oh, this is Louis Vuitton?” I said to myself, surprised that I stopped to see a display of a bag I’ve seen over and over again and am not attracted to. But still, I had to give it to them, a simple window and a cute visual merchandising idea got me to stop and stare.

Ruth La Ferla of The New York Times Fashion Blog dishes on emerging trends from the shows to the streets. In this article, she talks about “a romance with pieced and patched, multihued furs,” and how she noticed “the handful of insiders who seemed to draw on an uncanny fashion sixth sense.” She gives us everyday gals who aren’t lucky enough to see these shows up close and personal a scoop that people like the Marie Claire creative director Nina Garcia and the Moscow merchant Olga Karput were seen there already sporting the fashion. She uses words to describe their own looks like “wore a splashy variation from Fendi— whose fur chubby was a medley of kaleidoscopic tints” etc.
My favorite line by her had to be, “Rugged or ritzy, those looks were mirrored on the runways of Joseph Altuzarra, Phillip Lim, Diane von Furstenberg and others, their vivid hues a cold slap to a frazzled fashion pack.”
One things for sure, her array of words definitely gave me a glimpse into the shows from NYFW.

“The schoolgirl signature gets the high fashion treatment” according to BAZAAR.
By the looks of the runway, there is no doubt that we will be seeing pleated skirts everywhere come the Spring. It’s not our average pleated skirt like every catholic school girl donned either, instead, it’s maybe in fabrics like silk and chiffons, so it will actually flow and flatters. So go out and get your pleated skirts now if you want to be runway ready come Spring!

We, the millennials come from a time where it’s socially acceptable to post every detail about our lives for the internet to see. Whether it’s what we’re eating, wearing, or tweeting about what we are doing every twelve minutes because we have this idea in our heads that people are THAT interested to hear about your dentist visit, our resources have made is possible for us to reach millions of people all over the world. Today, we have platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and other ways of blogging that have launched average people just like us into stardom: It is now common to hear the phrase: “She’s Instagram famous.” You can replace Instagram with any other form of blogging and it would be all the same.
We all have our reasons for following certain blogs, like it or not, we all definitely do it. Here are four of my favorite:
1. www.songofstyle.com - a blog by Aimee Song, a sought after interior designer, but she didn’t stop there. She is also a blogger who posts pictures of her everyday outfits which scored her collaborations with Piperlime & 7 For All Mankind. Not to mention 4 million monthly views on her blog.
2. www.manrepeller.com - Leandra Medine is an author and fashion blogger known for The Man Repeller, a “humorous website for serious fashion” that you have to see to believe.
3. imnext.se/lisaplace - A blog that just recently got translated into English. For the longest time I used to visit Swedish blogger Lisa Olsson’s site because I loved her style and couldn’t believe how young she was, starting at age 14!
4. www.fashiontoast.com - Rumi Neely is a fashion blogger known for her style and photography. She started her blog in 2008 and by 2009, it was receiving over 35,000 hits per day. Now she models for Forever 21, Rebecca Minkoff, Free People and has collaborated with companies like RVCA, Tobi, REVOLVEclothing and Shopbop.
“In the winter of 2011, photographer and furniture designer Ana Kraš flew from her home in Belgrade, Serbia, to Los Angeles, where she’d been sent by a European magazine to photograph artist-musician Devendra Banhart. Within five minutes, he asked her to marry him. Despite her initial impulse to flee, she stayed—and the two have been together ever since.”
