Such a loafer!

Loafers can be seen everywhere nowadays. Take a look at a mix of high and low-end loafers I am loving lately, and am seeing everywhere -- online and offline. 

My favorite ones are:

$20 green tassel loafers from Target
$35 golden loafers from ModCloth
$135 Charles Philip striped wool loafers
$675 Yves Saint Laurent suede and metal loafers

Which one do you love the most? Tassels? Studs? Embroidery? Animal print? A little sparkle, may be? Whichever you pick, make sure it finds its way into your fall closet.

Such a loafer!


Ubiquitous Breton Stripes

I thought this summer was all about Breton stripes but the stripes love affair seems to be continuing through the fall. It actually never really died since the French sailors started the trend in the 1800s. Check out Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn in Breton tops. It is, indeed, a timeless, classic trend that will never disappoint you fashion-wise.

I did a fair bit of street/street style photography this summer, and I couldn't help but notice, and I kid you not, every 2nd or 3rd person on the street wearing stripes. And I noticed this trend in three major cities I was in this summer: New York, Montreal, and my home town Boston.

In fact, the trend was so hot that I decided to have some fun with it. I started shooting people wearing black and white stripes on street crossings around town. The shots are not very successful, but this could be one of those 'long-term' projects to work on.

If you don't have a Breton top in your closet, you need to get one. Like right now!


C is for Canon and C is for Chic

I am a Canon shooter and I rarely ever get in the Canon vs Nikon debate unlike many many people I know. I guess I'll never understand why it has to be such a big deal. With that said, I am secretly proud of shooting Canon (guess the competition is rubbing off on me)  after seeing all these fashionistas from Milan to Paris to New York shoot Canon. Just sayin'.

In Awe

I am absolutely in love with this vintage dress worn by Karla from karlascloset.com, one of my favorite blogs. So flowy and feminine. I seriously cannot get over it. Don't you simply want to wear this dress and walk the streets of Paris?

I am completely swooned over by vintage dresses since Mad Men and karlascloset.com happened to me. I bought two vintage shirts to fulfill my vintage shopping urge after watching four seasons of Mad Men in two straight weeks, hoping to fit into them one day after losing all my baby weight. That day hasn't come yet so I am letting them age some more in my closet.

Who knows, one day my daughter might model those for you : )


Street Style: Fashion Week NY Spring 2013

All eyes are on New York since past one week (or more) and so are mine. Today marks the last day of a week long NYFW and how could I not have paid homage to all the fashionistas around the world who gathered in NY to attend the event. We'll may be get to the fashion shows and all the Spring 2013 collections later, but I do want to point out my favorite thing about the NYFW: Bazaar's Street Style Spring 2013. I could stare at these street style photographs for hours and dream of photographing these gorgeous women one day.

Here, take a look at some of my favorite looks/photos:

Miroslava Duma looking so chic in that statement necklace and the printed dress.

How can one go wrong with a chambray? And a flirty skirt to add the punch.

Something so 70s about this look. Love the mixed prints.

That color and texture! Another great look by Miroslava Duma.

There were many many many more great looks and beautiful people. May be we'll go for round 2 soon.
