Indie Wish List: What Lester Wants for Christmas

Edited by

I’ve never cared much for Christmas — aside from a really long vacation from school or work, I never really got the fuss. In fact, I’d more than happy to ignore this holiday and just get wasted, eat Chinese food and catch the premiere of The Iron Lady. However, in the spirit of the season, I came across a few items that struck my fancy and would make even my Grinch’s heart grow marginally larger.

Bookclubbin’: Style Book: Fashionable Inspirations by Elizabeth Walker

Edited by

Great style transcends space and time. From a 19th century Indian colonel in head-to-toe tartan to a 70s supermodel in bright yellow plaid, significant fashion statements will always circle back around. Elizabeth Walker explores this trend phenomenon through historic photographs in her gorgeously-done coffee table staple Style Book: Fashionable Inspirations (Flammarion 2011). If you’re ever wondering how to wear that menswear-inspired suit, vintage fur shawl or those sky-high platforms, let style icons like Diane Keaton, Elton John and Sue Coddington be your guides.

Elizabeth and James Fall 2011 Collection Preview

Edited by

While Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen‘s The Row is earning rave reviews in the world of high fashion, their Elizabeth and James line offers a chic and tasteful option at a slightly more affordable price point. Obviously, if I had a cool two grand lying around I’d be in a The Row cardigan right now, but at least I can save up a few hundred for one of their sumptuous rabbit fur coats. Click through for some of the highlights from the collection!

Emanuel Ungaro has Something for Your Mistress, Not Your Wife

Edited by

Looking at the Emanuel Ungaro Fall 2011 collection, a repeat of leather collars with metal accents was the first indication that designer Giles Deacon was listening when Ungaro notoriously said, “I dress mistresses, not wives.” Sheer garments adorned with Lesage embroideries were rich and risqué while hemlines skimmed the tops of thighs. Body-conscious garments came down the runway in various forms like leather cocktail dresses, velvet suits and teeny tiny colorful silk dresses. The shoes were sweet yet sharp, in a rainbow of colors easily interchangeable among the looks. It won’t take long for these mistresses’ clothes to end up on the floor, as there is little to remove and barely anything left to the imagination. But I could see many a young fashionista work these dresses and jumpsuits into more avant-garde forms, mixing them with heavier fabrics and softer hair.

QUOTABLE: Stella McCartney

“I love a jumpsuit. I wore one last night, at the Met event, and I had to have a girlfriend take me in and out of it every time I had to go to the bathroom — so it does have its drawbacks, but I love them because they’re just so effortless. I think that pretty much sums up my brand.”

TRENDSPARK: Jumpsuits Are Everywhere

TRENDSPARK: Jumpsuits Are Everywhere

I for one, am glad to see the jumpsuit making yet another comeback.

They are easy to wear and most are very comfortable. I personally favor the ones that are loose, as they are very flattering to the figure. I love the “long and lean” look, as most accentuate the legs making them appear long whether you have long legs or not. The more “tailored” looks from Ralph Lauren and Yves St. Laurent are perfect to go from day to night with a change of shoes and accessories. In my book they are a definite “fashion do”. Here are just a few of my favorites.
