I Want it Wednesdays: Light Pink Zebra Print Thermal

19 July 2006

Zebra Thermal

I love thermals. Always have, always will. I’m a TRUE Trashionista so I honestly don’t care if their in season, in style or even in decent condition. They bring about fond childhood memories, are cute and comfortable as can be. I can wear them from the bed or out and about with my jeans — I don’t care.

Theyre one of my permanent-favorite wardrobe staples and this Foley Zebra Print Thermal exceeds all of my requirements because not only is it a thermal, but it also happens to be crazy stylish AND only $12.99. You can’t beat that with a baseball bat.

Expect to see me roaming the East Coast this Fall wearing this with a white vest, skinnies, high boots and a stack of layered gold necklaces.

Funky Fresh Ya’ll.

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG FOR PRESIDENT

18 July 2006

Diane Von Furstenberg

DVF was named President of the Council of Fashion Designers of America yesterday after a long-winded selection process that saw fellow designer Joseph Abboud take second place in the race to take over the role held by Stan Herman for the last 15 years.

The 59-year-old new president, who will serve a two-year term after the bylaws of the organisation changed last year, said that she hoped to transform it “so that people who are members of the CFDA are proud to be members”. After the announcement, Von Furstenberg was whisked to the CFDA’s Broadway headquarters in her green Bentley to make her inaugural speech. “I want to really work on all the benefits this membership gives,” she said.

“The most important thing is to really create an incredible network service system. I would like to go to the mayor and see what he can do for us. Our mayor appreciates that the fashion business is a huge business, and I would like to see what we can do together. We will have to talk about the endowment, and overall, create more of a brand for the CFDA, which is something I know how to do.”

Von Furstenberg’s other major ambition is to improve network relations between the world’s major fashion cities. “I know both Didier Grumbach [president of the Chambre Syndicale in Paris] and Mario Boselli [Grumbach’s counterpart in Milan], and I want them to respect us, and I think we will be the best of all the organisations and they will look up to us.” (July 18 2006, AM)

Congrats, Furstie.

Meet My New Favorite Pair of Jeans: The Lola Straight Leg

17 July 2006

I am soooooo glad that the days of ultra-lowrise flares, paired with tacky baby-t’s and everyones bedazzled belly buttons (ala Britney Spears) are over! It seems that denim designers all over are jumping on the skinny jeans craze and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m on a mission to find the absolute best pair and so far, these are the winners — Even above my former preference, Cheap Monday!!!

Meet my new favorite pair of jeans, and maybe soon to be yours: The Lola Straight Legged Slimfit, Mid-Rise Jean in Ace Wash.

They are slim through the hip and thigh with a 15″ leg opening and their double constructed waist provides butt lifting support and will not gap.

SKINNY SKINNY YAY!!!!
