NYFW- F/W'09

Hey guys. Wow I know I have been MIA...I have been very very busy with a lot of things, (among them was my fabulous internship at Balenciaga...ahh!) but here are some pics from some shows that I have attended so far on 2.13 (Morgane Le Faye and Art Academy) and 2.14 (Vena Cava and Spurr)!,

Of course, I have to show my outfit first!:

Me outside Vena Cava, Chanel sunglasses, Alexander Wang Dress, (Vintage) fox jacket, Balenciaga Day Bag in electric yellow, green stockings and Chloe heels.



Morgane Le Fay; I took a couple videos, along with pics. Gorgeous collection, loved the hoop skirts...the elbow length fur gloves on the other hand, very reminiscent of Balenciaga Pre-Fall '09 though...hmm just sayin'...

Academy of Art University...spotted Anja, Karlie & Chanel, Jack from Project Runway, Miss Jay. I attempted to take several pics / videos, did not have great seats because we arrived kind of late...

Spurr; So who made me more excited than the male models there?... I spotted LARA FREAKIN STONE, this girl can look gorgeous in her bathrobe. She happily obliged to taking a pic with me, I never get starstruck but I probably acted like an obsessed fan when I came up to her- "OMG ARE YOU LARA!? ...I LOVE YOU!!!" She laughed and was being very sweet about it...

Barney's Warehouse Sale

What a great weekend so far. You know what I love? Shopping and good friends, together the combination is unbeatable. So I finally got together with my good model / friend Liz, she is amazing. We went to the first day of the Barney's Warehouse sale around 8:30 and it was crazy hectic. There actually weren't many great deals left or anything I don't know if that has to do with the merchandise stock in general because we arrived relatively early, doors opened at 8am. We did manage to score some awesome heels though, yay!

Isn't she so fierce? The best thing about her is she is genuinely such a sweetheart. I really hope she becomes really successful, this girl is amazing. Do you love her outfit? I'm her stylist! We shopped for it earlier at Barney's, the cutoff denim shorts are hers.

My outfit:

Wearing the Marc by Marc Jacobs heels I scored at the sale :)

Like Leatha

Today's outfit:
I'm wearing another leather vest again....leatha leatha leatha.
Hahaha for those who watch Project Runway know what I'm talking about...that woman (I forgot her name) she is hillarious, super obsessed with leather, "I watch leatha tv."
okay maybe no one finds it as funny as I do... but I kind of love leather too

Photobucket

...excuse the blurriness in this one

Vintage Boredom

Hey guys, pics of today's outfit.
So FINALLY the weather is cool enough to semi-layer, wooohoo! I remember when I absolutely hated the cold weather and couldn't wait til summer came around.

Photobucket
Dress: H&M
Vest: Vintage
Belt: Vintage
Boots: Vintage

Don't ask, I have no idea why I took so many of the same pictures, clearly I'm really super bored right now. I secretly have more pics but that would definitely be going overboard.

Photobucket
Oh, incase you haven't noticed, further evidence that I am absolutely obsessed with Kate. We have the same initials and letter count for our first and last name together...ok I'm weird for noticing that, bye.

xoxo,
Karen

Phoebe Philo for Celine

Hello, how is everyone doing... where did all my readers go? :(
There is talk that former Chloé creative director Phoebe Philo, (named Designer Of The Year for the British Fashion Awards in '04) is the next designer to be tapped by Celine... (via my phone from elle news alerts)
I think that it's great she is taking over, I am very interested to see what kind of fresh take of direction she comes up with for Celine.

Currently, Ivana Omazic for Celine (Spring '08)
