My Favorite Dress Right Now

You guys, I’m obsessed with Reformation right now. They have a way of draping perfectly for a woman’s curves. The dress I wore for this shoot is my absolute favorite and I’ll be wearing it for years. I love that this piece stands out on it’s own and doesn’t need much accessorizing. You can find a similar style here.

LAweekly’s Artopia

LAWeekly hosted what I hope becomes an annual art, music, food, photography and pretty much everything else festival in downtown Los Angeles recently. Guys, if you get a chance, you should go next time. It was pretty awesome, with artists creating on large canvases, live music (love The Record Company), a XXX peep show and all kinds of food—pretty much anything you could dream up.

“This is a season of untypical colors—more reflective of the imagination and ingenuity, which makes for an artful collection of colors and combinations not bound by the usual hues for fall,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “There is a feminine mystique that is reflected throughout the palette, inspired by the increasing need for women everywhere to create an individual imprint.”

We’ve put together our own little guide on wearing the top 10 colors for fall. For buying info, visit Polyvore.

L.A. is Now One of the World’s Fashion Capitals; Plus, Big Changes for New York Fashion Week

Fashion_District,_Los_Angeles,_CAFashion junkies across Los Angeles are all thinking, “In your face, Milan!” right about now. Global Language Monitor released their yearly report on the fashion capitals of the world, and Los Angeles came in FOURTH! I know, I know, as much as we love L.A. and all of its designers—we were shocked too. As was GLM, which noted in the article, “Los Angeles! Yes, L.A.,” after we moved up five spots from 2012.

The top three cities were New York (stealing the spotlight from last year’s capital, London), Paris and London, respectively. See the rest of the list here. The rest of the top 10 included Barcelona, Rome, Berlin, Sydney, Antwerp and Shanghai.

New York’s top ranking bodes well for the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week, taking place February 6-13. IMG Fashion, which runs NYC’s fashion week, reported to the Wall Street Journal that a number of changes were in the cards for fashion week, which had become “too cluttered with people whose connections to fashion were tenuous at best.”

“It was becoming a zoo,” said Catherine Bennett, senior vice president and managing director at IMG Fashion Events and Properties, to the WSJ. “What used to be a platform for established designers to debut their collections to select media and buyers has developed into a cluttered, often cost-prohibitive and exhausting period for our industry to effectively do business.”

Those changes include new, less expensive venues. And, said the WSJ, “The redesigned venues aim to better control and reduce audience capacities, ‘making invitations once again an exclusive pass for true fashion insiders,’ according to IMG. Lincoln Center has often been swarmed with fashion bloggers, street-style photographers and fashion fans looking to be seen and photographed at the big scene, in addition to the hundreds of journalists and scores of celebrities.”

12 Cute Winter Hats You Need Right Now

Oh my goodness, it is cooold out side, y’all! OK, maybe not in L.A., but in other cities (looking at you, Atlanta). But decent weather here doesn’t mean I don’t love cold-weather clothes! If only I could buy a matching hat for my dog (because I would do that…that’s me, I’m that girl)…
