Setting the Mood: Hall Pass
Written by: admin | Setting the Mood

fall fashion 2014Many of you have sung summer’s swan song with the commencement of Labor Day, but I would like to take an optimistic moment to point out that the official end of summer isn’t until September 23rd and if this Amazonian jungle like heat is any indication (don’t worry- the worst is coming), we have a few more weeks to revel in the sun.  As the city refills with co-eds and those who spent all summer out east and jet setting around the globe, it starts to feel a little bit like a reunion.  While I’m several years past returning to the classroom for another semester of mundane lectures and assignments I don’t understand, something about the beginning of September and the onset of Fashion Week festivities feels like the first day of school and trying to find a seat in the cafeteria without spilling your chocolate milk.  Fall in New York elicits an excitement that is both magical and anxiety inducing.  So, brace yourselves, ladies.  Class is in session.

Why Did You Wear That: Urban Art

los angeles graffiti artA couple of weekends ago while down in LA we went on a hunt for some of the remaining graffiti covered walls.  I don’t mean like your random spraypaint tag.  I wanted big colorful murals reminiscent of Paula Abdul’s Opposites Attract (um, hello MC Skat!).  Much of Los Angeles’ “donated” artwork has been cleaned up by the city, but there is a little spot in Hollywood that is so boldly decorated, that you really can’t miss it.

For an afternoon adventure, I put on a pair of my (current) favorite skinny cropped 7′s, a sheer T-shirt and a pair of oxfords- which, to me, are the alternative to an ultra classic and somewhat girly ballet flat.  I accessorized with my gold go to jewelry and was comfortable all day.  Just another example that art is all around us… so long as you’re looking.

Setting the Mood: Who’s Afraid?
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

Pumpkins aren’t the only stars of fall.  Many a city girl may venture off in search of an orchard in order to capture herself the first perfect ruby red fruit of the season.  For some reason, all the apple picking makes me think of plaid and capes… which then leads me to think about one of my favorite storybook characters, Little Red Riding hood.  There’s such a combination of wide eyed naivete and dark mischief to that tale.  And I think there lies a little of each in all of us.  Fall is the most magical season of the year (and a good reason to live in the Northeast).  There’s just something about it that stirs up nostalgia and creates excitement.  Yet another one of life’s little contradictions.

Are you afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
