Boston’s Style

You So Fancy?
You So Fancy?

I must say that Boston is doing a spectacular job at creating their own style scene. Somehow the mixture of New England Classic Prepster, Hipster, Punkster and Hip Hop Rock star really plays off each other nicely and balances well. Everyone has good representation of their style in this small city and it’s great.

There’s a handful of boutiques that if I had access to $40k a month to go shopping at every month to fulfill my style needs. Out with my friend Billy and his fabulous dolls Briana and Ashley we made way to one of Boston’s Best Kept Jewels. I’ll leave them nameless for the simple fact that they have some of the worst customer service ever and it’s like “Really?!” Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That! However, they are one of the few boutiques that carry Balmain, Kenzo, Givenchy, rare Galliano(another love) and more…….

I really appreciate the intricate details that go into clothing of Balmain & Givenchy. Balmain is one of those brands that you can literally look at and recognize right away without even seeing a tag! It’s simple gorgeous, as for Givenchy. However, I never see it worn in Boston unfortunately. It’s sad but true. The fall collection is simply stunning too and it’s a shame that I won’t see anyone in Boston wearing it, well maybe if I go to Bijou. Both men and women can appreciate.

 

 

It’s Almost That Time……

DSquared2 Knit Shawl Collar Jacket

If you live on the New England or the Mid-West, it’s almost that time of year as you know where the seasons begin to turn and change. That time of year we almost always dread. I’ve always said “The 4th of July signals the beginning of the end of Summer”, with that being said, it’s time to move on to fall things.With fall brings us different approaches to our fashion.

I actually like the idea of dressing up in coats and vests. However, I haven’t found anything vest-wise that actually stands out. I still for some reason want an Adrienne Landau Rabbit fur vest. They look killer!!! Sorry, PETA. I found a few coats that I absolutely adore though.

With the exception of the DSquared Jacket that you see several times, the jackets typically range from about $60-$370.

The DSquared2 runs about $1570 at Saks……..Swipe that plastic baby!

I’m going to enjoy the rest of this New England summer while it’s here, I just got into the fall spirit when I got a head cold due to this drastic weather change. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Silver White Winters That Melt Into Spring……

Holiday Parties
All Eyez On Us We Took The Night

Tis the season to get out and enjoy that holiday party honey! I truly must say the holidays are a great time of year when you can get together and enjoy it with friends as well as family. Here’s a quote for you: “Ain’t No Party Like  A Holiday Party Cause A Holiday Party Don’t Stop!”  

Every year I dread the holiday parties, I dread the constant back and forth and let’s be cheerful and merry. I just don’t want to go, BLECH. I had fun at last years holiday party and maybe because I noticed a lot of growth in myself this year but this year was even more fun! The night before I went to a holiday party which was just as crazy, arguing with a drag queen, an Irish girl, and some other chick, turns out that was rather interesting. Naturally, I won the music choice.

So the holiday party was on the Odyssey Boat Cruises, which I’ve taken before in the past and it was fun. The music eh but it’s really hard to keep me actually happy to music because I find that a lot of DJs’s are inconsistent. Like my IPOD makes me happy because I choose the music but regardless this isn’t about the music.

Naturally, of course, we all wanted to go out dancing afterwards. Well, if you know me, you know that any chance I get I can I would love to make an outfit change of some sorts. Well not tonight, the only thing I wanted to change my shoes because everything else was perfect from the salon holiday party but for the nightclub, had to change shoes. Say Hello To My Friend:

Studdin' On 'Em
Studdin’ On ‘Em

I saw these shoes and said “Oh My God!” tried them on and they were a little tight but that’s ok….you can stretch a shoe, right? They are pretty fierce though I must say. It’s a high maintenance shoe but at the same time it’s simple.

If there is one trend that everyone should fall into in my honest opinion is the studded trend. So amazing all the things that you can do with them. There’s a brand that I follow based out of NYC called “Stud Muffin” it’s really amazing, how they take studs and make even sweatpants look good!!

Then again time to get back to the story at hand which is…that I love this time of year. It’s a time to be with those that you love, those that you hate and share and make memories. There is always too little time and too many parties to go to but that’s the fabulousness of it all. It’s like summer in New England, ya know.

Christmas is here sooner than we are going to realize. Hope you all have a safe and happy rest of your holiday season.
