Work It Wednesday: Fashion Miracles

Friends,

I’ve been in the retail and styling biz for a while now–I celebrated my four year anniversary as a personal stylist this July–but nothing of this sort has happened before.

While shopping with one of my clients (Hi Kathryn!), I found her a great pair of boot cut AG denim for ONE CENT. You read that correctly. Turns out the fashion stars aligned!

Fearless Fridays: Please Print

Fearless Fridays: Please Print

miramar3dpicThanks to Fashionista.com, I learned about Danit Peleg, the recent design graduate who used 3D printers to create her five piece collection.

I’m always excited to hear of a fashion designer that is interested in taking risks with new technology. I love Peleg’s philosophy behind her work. She states:

“I believe that technology will help democratize fashion and give designers more independence in the creation process.”

Fearless Fridays: Alexis Bittar (aka my lucite love)

Fearless Fridays: Alexis Bittar (aka my lucite love)

More than four years ago when I worked as a Nordstrom personal stylist, I was introduced to Alexis Bittar’s jewelry. His fondness for vintage baubles (no doubt influenced by his antique collecting parents) is reflected in his use of lucite.

I was taken by the sculptural element of Bittar’s jewelry, and the use of color.
And in one of my first blog posts I showed how I liked mixing my vintage jewelry with his square bangles.

My love for his aesthetic has expanded recently. Bittar used style icon Iris Apfel for his recent spring campaign. Using the ninety-four-year old aligns with his effort to broaden the fashion industry’s often narrow view of beauty.
