"This is my super amazing packing tip, and I promise you it works: You pack each outfit on a hanger inside a garment bag. Then, you fold them all into a loop and roll them around the hangers — it traps air in between, so you don’t get any creases. When you take them out, you just lift them out and put them into your closet. All the outfits are laid out — I even put the necklaces on and everything. All the accessories, like the shoes, go inside the bags, so you can’t forget anything."

things i learned from a press release today: MEGGINGS!

from B-Skinz, this one is called “psychedelic jungle,” for when you want to channel “Justin Bieber, Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz.”

this is terribly disturbing and i cannot stop looking through it.

maybe because i imagine it’s how all of naomi’s dates go?

Bottega Veneta’s creative director Tomas Maier is the picture of efficiency and design perfection. i once read in a New Yorker profile that he had the extraneous letters (“h” especially) removed from his name.

here’s what he had to tell Amy Larocca about the company’s leather offerings: 

“I never want to do the obvious thing,” Maier says, speaking in nearly unaccented English. He is wearing a gray cashmere sweater, khaki pants, a white shirt. Each is a perfect, and perfectly fitting, version of the thing. “Like, just because we are a leather company, we should do belts? No. I always said we would do belts when we had something for them to hold up.” Hanging beside said belts, sure enough, a rack of smooth gabardine pants.

Words of Wisdom from Iris Apfel

On New York today: “Now when I walk down Fifth Avenue in the summertime I just want to throw up. It seems that the fatter and uglier people are, the fewer clothes they wear. The shorts and flip-flops and tight jeans on butts that go from here to Poughkeepsie. I always say they should put people in jail for wearing clothes like that. Especially stretch jeans over size 10 — they should be outlawed. Ten years ago people were starting to look like slobs in New York, now it’s an epidemic.”

another perfect example of vanity prints - Charlotte Taylor does it best. she has some amazing prints out from last season (camels and penguins and spiders, oh my). there’s even an adorable cloud blouse. unfortunately, i don’t love this dress. i think it’s a little long and the pleating in front make it more appropriate for maternity wear. but there’s no doubting how much fun it would be to wear this lovely/lively dromedary print out


feeling the hump day slump? maybe a little bored? go home and try this today

omg Fashimals! fashion people rendered as animals. this is mostly perfection because i often think people look like animals - like my homeroom teacher who looked like a sloth and the starbucks lady who looked like a koala. anyway, this is great
