The onslaught of so-called news now delivered during fashion week regarding each show, celeb sighting, and inevitable blogger collaboration entirely drowns itself out, rendering all of it tired, dull, and a waste of my time.
Inspired by the brilliant Meh List published every week in The Sunday Magazine of The New York Times, I thought I’d start crafting my own. Today fashion week, Chrissy Teigen, and rapper beef are feeling rather meh.
Character is not built upon alcohol intake or the submission to social pressure. I’ve been told, at least, that it’s more about “doing you,” and if that you would like to get your sleepy ass to bed, then that you should do.
“I always say that if you can’t get inspired in New York, you can’t get inspired anywhere.” Rebecca Taylor is one of the few designers who manages to tap into my girlier proclivities, and one who succeeds at designing for every shade and shape of woman.

Introducing The Focal Point, a recurring feature that will review specific fashion collections. First up, I’m unpacking the broad appeal of Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2015 collection, as crafted by the fashion world’s collective lover-boy, Nicolas Ghesquiere.
When fashion week (on week-on week-on week) rolled around last month, I found myself dreading it. This, despite the fact that I’m not directly involved in it in any way.

Fangirls continue to fawn over the fashion world’s continuous stream of unhealthy figures, seemingly in denial that a good 90% of these bodies are formed via illness, or worse…well aware and not the least bit alarmed.
