During my little free time--in between work and school--I am working on creating a new blog. I'll be hosting from Wordpress most likely, with a new name, a new theme, and a new beginning.
I could never express in mere words how much you guys mean to me. My loyal fans and my loyal readers; you guys are what made me write, even when I didn't want to. The past few months I have become extremely over worked and left my blog to fend for itself, but without a writer a blog cannot strive.
As soon as everything is ready I'll be place a link to the new blog. Although I'll still report on fashion, I'd like to have something that is a little more culture. A blog that covers everything from fashion, art, music, to cuisine. I want to become less of a reblogger and more of a reporter.
"Everyone today still wants their children to become doctors, lawyers, engineers, but what is the problem if your son wants to become a designer, or a creative? Maybe in the rest of the world it’s very different, but in Italy there is still this thing that if you say that your son wants to become a designer or an art director, they automatically think he must be gay. So what, even if it were the case? We are in 2011, who cares?" - Franca Sozzani, Editor in Chief of Vogue Italia.
This is a quote said by the great fashion editor, Franca Sozzani. She was interviewed sometime last month for Women's Wear Daily. You can read the interview here.
It's a combination of being busy, and merely not being inspired to write anything. I've also been spending a lot less time on the computer; I'm trying to read and study more. But never worry, I have been keeping up on the latest news, such as the Royal Wedding, which I thought was rather spectacular, Catherine Middleton looked beautiful.
This is going to be a short post because I have nothing in particular to talk about, I just wanted to show you all this picture of Elle Fanning. Elle Fanning wore Valentino t the Vogue Met Gala, and I thought she looked immaculate. I thought this particular look made her look elegant, but she was able to look excellent without looking too mature. I'm a big fan of her style.
There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who wears her hair naturally. My style idol, Creative Director of American Vogue, Grace Coddington is the very definition of natural hair. Her hair itself is as famous as her impeccable styling skills. Her vivid red, bushy mane is as iconic as her work at Vogue.
No matter how old Grace grows she still grasps that grace and beauty that women so long for, she is one of the most beautiful human beings; in and out, and her work is just as beautiful. I've kept every single Vogue I've ever received so that I can go back and look at her work over and over. One of my greatest fears is never meeting her, it's Ms. Coddington who keeps me doing what I love.
There is no denying that Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are some of the best designers based out of New York. Their label, Proenza Schouler is the perfect combination of modern sleek design with tailoring comparable with that of haute couture. Check out this video of their Spring/Summer 2011 collection's detail. You see the clothes in a new new, you really get a feel for the beautiful craftsmanship they put into the garments.
