New York Fashion Week is coming to a close, and like so many, I’ve spent a significant amount of time trolling the internet looking at all the glorious goods. I like to think I have a healthy relationship with fashion. I’m not a slave to it, but I do enjoy pulling together my ensembles. I love to mix styles and textures to give my look just the right amount of attitude. Fashion is a form of expression much like interior design. The upside is that it offers immediate gratification and I can switch up my style every day if I like to suit my mood. That’s a nice change of pace for someone who works in an atmosphere of planning and permanence. I’ve saved some of my looks from the past year along with a few of my favorite online fashion “clippings” for posterity. If there’s a common thread among them, it’s contrast. I like a little rock-n-roll with my ladylike and a bit of humble with my glam.
Now for the real deal.
