While at New York Fashion Week I took advantage of free time I had to shoot a couple of outfits. First up, one to bring you from summer to fall.
Bold prints can be worn year round, but the end of summer is really the last chance you can make bright florals work with the upcoming elements (at least that’s true if you live in the north East Coast, since if you are Los Angeles and Miami you can wear the print all year round). I styled a blue floral-geo print short sleeve button down from Express with black accessories and a tee to contrast the shirt, but added a pair of cerulean blue slacks to balance the overall look. Along with my accessories like the Frank & Oak canvas and leather backpack and Kenneth Cole leather slip-on kicks, I also show the ultimate fashion week essential; a Mophie juice pack helium battery phone case in a metallic green. Seriously, I sadly would not have survived without from all the shows, events, and street style and backstage coverage I did while at NYFW. See more of the look below:

In this edition of Daily Essentials, I focus on accessories in the color that you can never go wrong with, black. Chic by definition, having an outfit or accessories set based on black will always look good. However, it can look better and last you longer when you move from fast fashion items and upgrade to more luxurious products. Read the rest of this entry
A year at Diesel as the artistic director, Nicola Formichetti wanted to present his debut collection in a different way outside of the established fashion weeks. Wanting to offer “an experience people can remember”, Diesel’s Fall/Winter 2014 presentation was only shown to an audience of 300 in Venice yesterday, and was promoted and shown through social media with the hashtag #DieselVenice.
Attendees included editors from across the globe, power bloggers such as Bryan Boy, Susie Bubble and Blonde Salad, designers Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED2 and Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren of Viktor & Rolf, and celebs from Courtney Love to Colton Haynes (who’s becoming quite the fashion attendee).
While yours truly wasn’t there (#somedaymaybe), thanks to social media, I’ve picked out the best photo moments from the show, which include a performance from rapper Brooke Candy (Nicola’s muse), a ski mask homage to the Russian feminist punk rock protest band Pussy Riot, and the clothes of course, which for men included distressed, patch worked and paint splatter denim, leather moto jackets, and a lot of tattoos!
