Technology Meets Fashion: My Wish List

Technology Meets Fashion: My Wish List

1 by / on September 7, 2013, 12:00 pm / in Editorial, Fashion, Second City Style Blog

Lately I keep hearing how technology is meshing (or messing) with fashion. Nina Garcia is wearing Google Glass, there are handbags that can charge your smartphone, Tim Gunn wears a Nike FuelBand and I heard they are developing a car in China that will drive itself. Will we send off our loved ones, saying “Bye Bye, enjoy your drive, sleep […]

How creative can you get with a disposable painter’s suit from Home Depot? Apparently, you can style it into at least seven completely different fashionable looks. In Carine Roitfeld’s ongoing series in her namesake print and digital magazine, CR Fashion Book, the stylist and former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris creates multiple looks using one key wardrobe essential. In a post published […]

My Ode To Lilly Pulitzer

My Ode To Lilly Pulitzer

0 by / on April 8, 2013, 2:00 pm / in Designers, Editorial, Second City Style Blog

Lilly Pulitzer and Margaret Thatcher died within a day of each other. Two very influential women indeed. Yet Pulitzer had a very profound fashion effect on me. Lillian Bostwick Phipps Pulitzer Rousseau (known since 1959 as the preppy designer Lilly Pulitzer) died Sunday morning at her Palm Beach residence at the age of 81. I have so many amazing  memories […]

In Response To: The Circus Of Fashion

1 by / on February 21, 2013, 9:00 am / in Editorial, Second City Style Blog

The fashion blogesphere and Twitterverse are all up in arms about a recent article penned a few days ago by Suzy Menkes for T Magazine (read “The Circus of Fashion” here). I generally respect the hell out of Ms. Menkes who has been the head fashion reporter/editor for the International Herald Tribune since 1988. I remember reading her for the […]

When Fast Fashion Kills

When Fast Fashion Kills

I have to admit, I did not know there was a factory fire in Bangladesh that killed more than 100 factory workers over this past weekend. I was in a Thanksgiving holiday all-consuming bubble (which is my family) so I was out of the loop for a few days. Last night one of our editors brought this article from CNN […]

Fast Fashion: Changing The Landscape Of Fashion Forever?

Fast Fashion: Changing The Landscape Of Fashion Forever?

Lately I have been feeling rather blase about fashion. I’m slightly bored. There doesn’t seem to be anything terribly new and trends are recycling faster than I can keep up. Mind you, I will buy a trendy item to pair with my designer duds at Zara in a New York minute. Yesterday I came across an interesting article in the […]

The General Malaise in Women’s Fashion Apparel

Maybe it’s the MBA talking, but I am always interested in the business side of fashion, so an article in today’s WWD about the state of women’s fashion really caught my attention. I have seen so many changes in the fashion industry since we launched Second City Style nearly 8 years ago. At the time we launched fashion was totally […]

Do You Have An Emotional Attachement To Certain Labels?

Admittedly, I am just catching up on the style section of the NY Times and an article from April 18 entitled ‘It’s Not You, It’s Me,’ We Tell Our Clothes, really resonated with me and is a topic I had considered approaching. How many women do you know who have been wearing certain labels for years, even though they no […]

I was unable to attend the press event the night before the collection launched, but heard it cleared out in 14 minutes anyway! I would have been so pissed had I gone. Alia managed to snag the skirt pictured above for me, however. Thanks Alia! Anyway, as a mother with two young sons there was no possibility of my waiting […]

Thank God! The Kardashian Magazine is Axed

I think we are finally seeing the demise of the Kardashian klan! Finally! SCS reported earlier that the Kardashians were planning on releasing their own magazine dedicated to everything Kardashian, all the time. Well, in an event that surprised no one, that idea was demolished and the only person to blame is head mistress Kris Jenner. Sources told Page Six […]
