Bal Harbour Shops asked me to choose a few of my favorite NYC to Miami must-haves. I convinced them to give an entire set to one of my readers. I’m good like that…
V-day is nearly upon us, and with it, a swooning deluge of NYC women with Sex and the City dreams. In honor of the holiday of love, I make my way to Nordstrom to find some intimates worthy of my own Mr.Big and get down to what made Carrie Bradshaw the quintessential cheeky coquette by rummaging through her underwear drawer.
It’s hard for a hardened fashionite to admit love to a single publication, being that there are sooo many options, and no mere mortal has the time, or the bank account, to purchase and privy all the amazing editorials produced each month in lesser known titles like Acne Paper or Purple Mag, which is why it’s refreshing for me to be able to admit that Harper’s is my hands down, favorite big box, kind of the equivalent of Walmart to Dazed & Confused‘s mom & pop, fashion glossy.

New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn doesn’t have many friends left in the industry, it seems, after a series of scathing critiques about anyone who rubs her the wrong way. And these days, any which way is the wrong way.

We reported earlier that American Vogue editor Anna Wintour was slated to host two more fundraisers for the President Barack Obama when she hit Europe for London and Paris Fashion Week. Well looks like Anna and co-host Tom Ford drew an impressive crowd for their ridiculously expensive fundraising affair.
Remember back when editrix in chief Anna Wintour hosted that Barack Obama fundraiser at Sarah Jessica Parker’s house and sold tickets for 40 grand a pop? Well the queen of multi-tasking has decided to throw a couple more while she is abroad during London Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. The kicker is they’re still too expensive for us to go.
Italy’s Pitti Immagine is not happy with the British Fashion Council after the BFC announced yesterday that its second London Collections: Men showcase would run from January 7-9, direct conflict with Pitti Uomo, which takes place January 8-11 in Florence. Run for the boutiques, hunker down and pray for daylight: we’ve got another Fashion Week Calendar War on our hands.
