I have very fond memories from my trip to Sydney, Australia – my best friend got engaged at the Sydney Opera House during our trip, and the experience was romantic, beautiful, and an all around wonderful one.
As you all well know, I am also a huge fan of all the gorgeous V.S. models, including Miranda Kerr, who is beyond stunning! So for this weeks, Re-Tweet, I’d like to share Miranda’s recent photo-shoot, which took place aboard the La Dolce Vida (The Good Life), in Sydney Harbor, Australia. (Miranda is an Australian native, btw). The shoot, which was for UK Vogue Magazine, took place yesterday, and featured Miranda in a white bikini while posing on the back of a vintage wooden speedboat. Before heading out for her job on the sea, Miranda tweeted, “Have a great day everyone! I’m off to work to shoot uk vogue xxx.”

During my recent stay at Foxwoods Resort and Casino, I had dinner at the lounge in Cedar’s Steakhouse. The entrance to Cedars is located by the Great Cedar Casino on the Concourse Level and is welcoming with high ceilings and a lit fireplace that warms the room. There are some comfortable chairs and sofas in the lobby as well to sit in if there’s a wait. (If you’re not a wait-by-the-fire-kinda person, they also take reservations). I had a pretty big lunch, so I decided to skip out on a main entree and just order a soup and salad. I chose the lobster bisque and classic Cedar’s Salad with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, and a creamy, blue cheese dressing. It was delicious topped with fresh ground pepper! The complimentary bread that was served was pretty extraordinary; among the flavors was a cranberry bread paired with cranberry butter. The lobster bisque, however, was by far the best part of my meal; topped with Sherry – See pics below!
I am in love with this concept! Kmart Fashion has partnered with It Girl downtown t-shirt line SOPHOMORE to create a limited edition t-shirt inspired by the frenzy of Fashion Week. Designed by SOPHOMORE’s creative director Chrissie Miller, the #FashionWeekProblems tee espouses the creativity and tongue-and-chic fun of SOPHOMORE with the classic wearability of Kmart Fashion.
Emblazoned with the hashtag #FashionWeekProblems across the front, the t-shirt signifies all of the little Fashion Week mishaps–from broken heels to torn stockings–that Kmart’s Concierge service will solve. Designer, DJ and entrepreneur Chrissie (who already counts fashionistas like Chloë Sevigny, Cory Kennedy and Alexandra Richards as fans) says, “Working with Kmart just made sense. I’ve been a fan of the store since I was a little girl growing up in NYC. It’s such a heritage brand and still a place I go to to find classic basics which I can build into my everyday look.” She continues, “The t-shirt design came about from this idea of #FashionWeekProblems. Who hasn’t had a major shoe emergency on their way to a show or party? A broken heel is every girl’s nightmare!”
The t-shirt will be unveiled at a private event in NYC on 2/2 and available as a gift with purchase (while supplies last) at SOPHOMORE’s 143 Ludlow Street store. See more after the jump.
Looking forward to Fall/Winter 2012, Patricia Clyne speaks of her inspiration behind the 2012 F/W Helios & Luna Collection.
“This season, I went to an art gallery for my inspiration for the new Helios & Luna Collection for Fall 2012. I became obsessed by the British conceptual modern artist Martin Creed. His graphic bold strokes and colors reflect the spirit of the woman the collection is designed for”.
Patricia, a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, has been designing clothes since childhood and has seen her designs in major fashion publications including Vogue and in major fashion retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman. Collaborating with Helios & Luna, Patricia has created a collection that is modern, feminine, and luxurious. She’s a visionary designer who believes in delighting the eye with fresh color and surprising silhouettes, while providing impeccable quality and fit. And she has plenty of experience in doing so, having served as design director for the Oscar by Oscar de la Renta line for a decade prior to joining Helios & Luna. Today, Patricia dedicates her talents to elevating the Helios & Luna brand — bringing customers chic separates, smart suiting, whimsical sportswear and stunning occasion dressing. She says she takes as much inspiration from conversations with her girlfriends as she does from what’s new on Parisian runways. “My muse is the well-dressed woman. Anywhere I see her, I take note.”
Patricia Clyne’s Fall/Winter 2010 Collection for Helios & Luna will be presented on February 8 2012 at New York Fashion Week.
Speaking for Myself tells the inspiring story of eight artists living in New York City. Directed by award winning filmmaker, Bert Shapiro. It has attracted critical praise from audiences and film professionals. The beauty of each artist’s journey is not only fascinating, but motivating. It offers tremendous support for those that have the courage to pursue what they’re most passionate about, even if that means struggling. Their stories reveal the gritty reality of artistic devotion. Though it features beautiful performances, Speaking for Myself pulls back the curtain so that we may see the world through the artist’s eyes. Their hard work and persistence can be applied to any profession. In this way, Speaking for Myself appeals to audiences of all walks of life. The film explores part of “unseen” Manhattan that New Yorkers and non-New Yorkers should be familiar with.
The film is set to screen in NYC on Tuesday, March 13th at 6pm at the Anthology Archives 32, 2nd Ave (2nd Street) NYC, Tickets $9. Artists from the film, as well as the film’s director will be on hand to answer questions.
You can view a trailer of the film here.
I’m a huge fan of Las Vegas and go there as often as I can. So, I was excited to learn that Cee Lo Green is the star of this new ad from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). In the video, Cee Lo figures out that the best way to duck the paparazzi is to head to Las Vegas, where the paps chasing him are unable to follow due to the legendary myth that “What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas”. While, I can personally assure you that, that is not true, I do enjoy this video and hope you will too! Video below.
Ok, so I absolutely love reading other blogs/websites that feature daily outfit inspirations and so I’ve decide to dabble in doing the same. This is something that I’ve wanted to do for awhile, but would always end up taking photos then never posting them. Trust me, it’s a little scary to put yourself out there to be judged from a style point of view. However, I’ve decided to go for it and so this is my first, of what will hopefully be many, ‘outfit breakdowns’.
