Zac Posen Spring/Summer 2013

by kristy

It’s difficult to think ahead to the Spring/Summer as winter is just starting to settle in and we are all reaching for our 2ply cashmeres. However, drug the sight of Zac Posen’s Ready To Wear warms me. The prints, youth health flouncy skirts, color story and the lovely sweet heart neck lines had a pleasing vintage charm. My personal favorite is the white with red floral dress as well as the black wide leg jumpsuit.

Color Crush

by kristy

Without a doubt, prothesis Oxblood is the “It” color of the season. Though the name would suggest that we’re talking about oxen, it’s actually short for “oxygenated blood,” the color when blood is exposed to air and turns a deep, dark red. What’s great about  the wine/burgundy color is that not only is it great as a pop color or worn head to toe, but it actually is one of those colors that works on just about everyone!

Daha Vintage

by kristy

Thursday was the release party for Bodega Girl’s video ‘Surf’s Up America’ that I was the assistant stylist on. Converse and Loroto Productions collaborated with Bodega Girls to create a music video that I can only describe as whimsical and fanciful. Despite the 8 hour drive from Boston to New York during the snow storm I met some wonderful people and had an amazing time running around Lower East Side in my funky vintage dress. I can’t wait for the video to drop for the world to see!

 


 

Located in the Lower East Side is this wonder land of vintage called Daha Vintage. Walls of covet worthy boots, cost
racks filled with beautiful dresses and so much more. Mj, the shop girl was very friendly and knowledgeable, I loved the bohemian rocker look she was wearing with a long sleeve silk cardigan over a black dress, belted with a wide stretch belt and layered accessories. Of course the floppy hat pulls it all together.
