This season's soft, flouncy, and ladylike florals are a welcome answer to the harsher, graphic florals we've been experimenting with all winter. Erdem had some lovely looks that were nothing short of romantic on their SS12 runways, but if you don't have $3000 to blow, check out my alternatives:
Went back in for Round Two of make-up experimentation with my darling friend Elena K (follow her on twitter @makeupaffair). You may remember the first time around, when we did some seriously dramatic makeup with a strong brow and a no-nonsense red Chanel lip. This time we went in a totally fun, crazy direction and did a playful, easy, warm weather look with lots of bright colors for Spring.
Last Thursday, on one of this years few snowy nights here in Boston we ushered in The Sunshine Season at Reiss on Newbury Street. The irony is not lost on me, friends, but it was still the most amazing night ever: Boston's glitterati celebrated the snow with a night of models, music, gin cocktails, and Cali-inspired fashion from Reiss.
It was my first time officially styling and coordinating a fashion show, and my fellow partner in crime, Menswear Style Curator Jeff Lahans and I killed it! (If I may say so myself...) I had the best time ever, and I can't wait to do it again!
