Fashion Week, Day Eight: Where To Buy My Look!


Bloody but unbowed, I managed to get to the final day under the Bryant Park tents, only to be greeted as a celebrity by the paparazzi at the Isaac Mizrahi show!

You cannot tell from this photograph, but once again I was carrying that wonderful clock purse from Off Broadway.
My lace peep-toe high heeled pumps are from my vintage 1950s cocktail dress from my personal collection, and my dazzling rhinestone veiled hat from the ever-reliable Ellen Christine Millinery! It is another piece from her Fall 2009 collection.

Please do patronize the wonderful shops mentioned in this blog-thing; they are all full of amazing pieces, one-of-kind items, and delights for every budget!

Fashion Week, Day Seven: Where To Buy My Look


For a truly whirlwind day under the tents, I again chose the gorgeous red microfiber jacket from Off-Broadway! Also from Off Broadway, a pair of stunning black and white rhinestone earrings and the cutest bag, with an actual working clock on the front. (How's that for a way to always be on time?)

I am also wearing that adorable red leather flower hat from Off Broadway, and my little black flamenco-style dress is by Torrid, courtesy of Re/Dress NY! ( )
Once again, I was one of the best dressed women under the tents. (I always am, but it's good to have help.)

Fashion Week, Day Five: Where To Buy My Vintage Look!


Monday was a fairly easy one inside the tents. All I had scheduled were the Tadashi Shoji and Gottex shows, and a few interviews, so I decided to dress a bit more casually and comfortably. But with no less fabulosity--I have a reputation to maintain, after all!

I'm wearing a 100% silk vintage 80s Adele Simpson wedge dress, with shoulder flanges and three quarter length sleeves. It is from Re/Dress New York, and helped me survive the day in style! It shows you how versatile this store's offerings are, to say the least. (And it will be returned, freshly dry cleaned, next week!)

My hat is from Off Broadway Boutique on 72nd Street, and it's darling! The "flower" is made of leather, and the center is actually a metal zipper! The store carries them in a variety of colors, including silver and gold. You simply must go there and try them on!

Until later,

Fashion Week, Day Four: Where To Buy My Look!


Today I thought I would wear my own wardrobe, including a vintage 1980s faux fur velvet jacket with rhinestone buttons and a sexy print dress.

However, you may recognize my wonderful blue hat from Ellen Christine Millinery (, and my size 11WW t-strap shoes are from Coward Shoes, one of the few websites one can reliably find my size. They are not sponsoring me, but this is in the interest of anyone who leaves, shall we say, a larger footprint.

Fashion Week Day Three: Where To Buy My Look!


Yesterday I attended the Christian Siriano show, where there were (naturally) not only a celebrities but quite a few Project Runway alumns! Here I am with the handsome Jack Mackenroth, who posed for dozens of photos because we didn't know whether or not the camera was working! (If I had been handling it, it would have WORKED.)

And here is your faithful correspondent backstage at the Siriano show:

My beautiful oyster felt hat, trimmed with black ribbon, was custom made for me by Ellen Christine of Ellen Christine Millinery!

And my black two-piece suit with attached collar and cuffs is from Re/Dress New York, a phenomenal plus size vintage and contemporary boutique in Brooklyn! (There is an earlier entry in this blog-thing about their never-to-be-forgotten opening party.)

Their racks are packed full of a huge variety of clothes, from vintage eveningwear to contemporary work dresses, lingerie, all in sizes up to 4X and beyond! I cannot recommend this shop highly enough. During my day there, I felt like a child in a candy store. My driver took me there, but it's easy enough to get to on the (ugh) subway, so I'm told.

During Fashion Week, they are having their own alternative event:

Visit their website at http://http// They also sell on Ebay. Watch for more in the days to come!

Fashion Week Day Two: Where To Buy My Look!


The Off-Broadway Boutique on West 72nd Street is known for over-the-top glam. Yesterday I woke up to pouring rain and the prospect of running around the Marc Bouwer shoot. So I choose simple flat black boots (, black wide-legged trousers, a black shirt, and vintage black earrings.

I topped it off with an amazing red microfiber jacket from Off-Broadway that withstood the rain and a full day of activities and never looked less than perfect!

(Your faithful correspondent on the scene, as always)

Here it is on the hanger, but the photo does not do it justice!

Lynn, Yal-el and the staff was unbelievably helpful, and picked out stylish items that any fashionista would be delighted to wear! To see more lovely things, please go to:
