What I'm Obsessed with right now...

Mary Katrantzou's Topshop collection

One of the Topshop looks for the Katrantzou collaboration

Mary Katrantzou captured my attention almost a year ago at the London 2011 Fall Runway. I feel madly in love with her beautiful mix of prints and the fact that every dress looked like a piece of art that could be hanging in a museum. Now I have come to learn that in early 2012 (dates still pending), she will launch a 10 piece collection with Topshop that looks identical to her runway pieces. AMAZING! Can't wait to get my hands on anything from this collection...if it doesn't sell out instantly.

BG + Humane Society

High Fashion goes to the dogs! ♥BG! 

The Holiday Windows are up, lights are hanging on Fifth Avenue, and there’s a line at the airport — it must be time for our holiday video. “Unleashed” is here and it’s ready to rumble around the internet. BG has always been a dog-friendly store but for “Unleashed” we got downright intimate. Dogs had free run through the store (the filming took place at 5am) and as you’ll see, they took full advantage.

We were very happy to work with the Humane Society of New York, which has been helping animals in need since 1904.

The Carnival of the Animals have arrived. Each window features a specific material that depicts animals you’ll find from icebergs to the tropics—but rarely on Fifth Avenue.
The ‘brass menagerie’ is full of tropical metal birds made in the 1970’s by artist Sergio Bustamante. Naeem Khan designed a dress specifically for the stylish songstress cooing in the window.


Then dive into the deep end with the Aquarium window, with fish made by artist Brett Windham that are encrusted with mosaic tile, and rhinestones, gems, and sequins for good measure.

The paper window is over 300 different papers used in black, gray, and white, used to make zebras, Dalmatians, and other monochrome animals.

There’s also a ‘North Pole Garden Party’ with upholstered animals, a very sweet polar bear, and a monkey about to pop open the champagne.

What I'm Obsessed with right now...

Woven Cowboy Boots

A few months back, I wrote about the stunning boot collection that is Cobra Society...but with prices upwards of $1,195, I would almost be afraid to wear these beauties out of the house. Luck would have it, several other companies have been "inspired" by the look of these boots and come up with their take on the trend at a lower price. Here are a few that on my wish list!

What I'm Obsessed with right now...

Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson Coffee Table Book

Just purchased this book last night and I am obsessed already! Every photo feels so personal and intimate and every one is just stunning. But then, I expect nothing less when it comes to Terry Richardson. As you continue to flip through the pages, Gaga's world sucks you in to the point where you feel like you are scrolling through a close friend's photo album.  If you love this woman as much as me, you need to get yourself a copy!

Drop by Target before Sunday and you can pick this lovely up for only $30 (retails for $50).

Watch Lady Gaga read the Foreword in the book and check out some of the great shots below.

What I'm obsessed with right now...


Today is official Corduroy Appreciation Day due to the nature of the dates visual similarity to corduroys (1/11 is also considered Corduroy Appreciation Day....just in case one day a year wasn't enough for you). The date of 11/11/11 is considered to be the "holiest" of Corduroy Appreciation days, according to Wikepepdia. So in honor of this special day, I have thrown on my skinny cords.

Happy Corduroy Appreciation Day!

Next Up....

Doo-Ri Chung Is Macy’s Next Collaborator

Sketches from Doo-Ri's Macy's line.

Though I think Macy's has hit a wall and will never be considered fashion-forward, I am super excited for this Impulse collaboration.  Doo-Ri Chung is an amazing talent and drapes a garment better than anyone. This is what collaboration lines are all about: introducing an unfamiliar name to the masses that carries a talent that can be appreciated by all. Doo-Ri will design trench coats, some arty prints, short and long dresses, and leggings for her Macy's collection, according to WWD. The price points will range from $39 to $159 and will be sold for eight weeks begining February 15th. Mark your calendars!

Check out some of the looks from Doo-Ri Chung's RTW Spring 2012 collection. See the full collection at
