Gussied up

Seams to me we have lost the magic of fashion and all that it implies. I know you must be thinking how can she say that we are in an age where fashion shows are televised to run simultaneously as they walk, we can watch "how-to" backstage videos of our fav models but, do we really but this into rotation of our daily lives? We aren't all Jane Aldridge with that perfect occasion outfit and the fabulous place to wear it to but maybe we should look to our past to the likes of Veronica Lake, Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. I highly doubt these women would wake up run out int here pajamas to make a Starbucks run, no they wouldn't go out of the ouse less than put together and I think its something we should reinstate. No more "if I only had a place to wear it" type comments from now on we should dress like to quote Usher "its the last night or lives"

I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." 
So fellow readers I challenge you to take the amazing dress/pants/shoes what ever it maybe and take if from the boring shadows and bring it into a fashion infused light

Waris Ahluwalia part one

I know i've been absent for quite awhile and do promise to try never to be absent for that long again. Today  StyleCaster's 50 most stylish New Yorkers came out and on the list was one stylish fellow I had seen but couldn't place Waris Ahluwalia after some googling I had an "ah ha" moment and proceed to have another "ah ha" moment when it hit me that I have never blogged about mens fashion. Waris is one of a kind he is iconic for his ever present turban and beard. He has a drool worthy line of jewelry House of Waris and can be seen in his buddy Wes Anderson's films. He has a list of sparkly famous friends maybe those he befriended in his former party hopping ways?
