Leandra Medine (The Man Repeller). Love her, love her sharp tongue, love her blog, love all the recognition she’s getting and now am completely jealous of her clothes/shoes/bags/abode.
Women of the western world have been dabbling in turban-wear for quite a while. But, if you’re acquainted with the Man Repeller, you know that turbans are not one of the most attractive things you can wear (according to men…but who cares!). However, it is easy, fashionable and a fabulous way to disguise unwashed hair. Personally I love it but have not tried it. For some reason, I feel like it looks better with a tan (doesn’t everything?). PS – I discovered airbrush spray tanning. Life changer. I digress. What do you think of turbans? My final thought is that it takes a chic person to make the turban look chic.

So…what do you think? Will you try it? I think this last image convinces me the most.
The age-old question, “can I wear tights with open-toed shoes?” has taken on new meaning for me lately. I am ever-more tempted to wear socks with my blatantly strappy sandals. I actually think it looks really cool. Why should all those perfectly fun cutout platforms be hidden away during cold weather? I do realize that one has to be careful with outfit decisions, as this trend can easily go awry. But I think I’m going to try it! What about you?
As most of you know, it is Fall 11 Fashion Week in NYC. Every fashion week, the fashion-elite come out in droves to see the shows. They have become an attraction themselves for street-style photographers. Everyone wants to see what the tastemakers are wearing.. I am definitely spotting certain trends including fur, pops of bold colors, leather, animal print, top-knots and of course…black. Here are my favorites of the week via The Cut and StreetFSN.

All three of you…I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday. I wish everyone was able to take off most of the week like me. I know you’re jealous if you are not one of those people. I know I would be if I were you. However, even though you begrudge my time off, you cannot take it away from me. For that and for you, I am thankful.
I must tell you I will probably take a hiatus from posting as often as I like to in regular life in favor of drinking wine on someone’s couch mid-day while watching soapnet, forcing my brothers to listen to my music or “helping my mom cook” which also entails magazine reading and perusing her closet. Also, there will be plenty of time spent in the tub (see etsy).
While I’m away, do a few things for me.
And…if you’re interested in some of my favorite posts of late

Love from the tub,
Do you ever have one of those days when nothing is working? Yeah, they are usually Mondays. Anyway, these things are uplifting me from my melancholy.
