DreamSequins' Fashion Blogger Meet-Up
Dress - Lauren Kovin (Spring 2009) Tights - Wolford Shoes - YSL Tribute Too
Last night I trekked down to Nolita for Dream Sequins' (www.dreamsequins.com) Fashion Bloggers Meet-Up at Debut New York, a chic boutique that features emerging independent designers.
Dream Sequins writes about the most obscure and coolest indie talent, so I decided to wear a dress by one of my favorite independent designers, my dear friend Lauren Kovin (www.laurenkovin.com).
I wore the Box Dress from her Spring 2009 collection in the black version. It looks different than what's shown in her lookbook because she decided to shorten the style so that it could also be worn as a tunic. (Honestly, I was afraid that it would look like I forgot to wear pants--and it could very well look like I did haha--but I decided to just go with it!) One of my favorite parts about this dress is the back:
It was great to meet Dream Sequins in person and mingle with other fashion bloggers, including 39th and Broadway (http://www.39thandbroadway.com) and Musie (http://musie.wordpress.com). It made me realize how fashion blogging really adds new dialogue to the fashion landscape--and made me want to update this blog more often!
On a side note, I've been obsessed about getting a haircut for the past two weeks, which only happens when I know "it's time"! My dilemma is that I'm trying to grow it longer so I'm holding out... But it desperately needs to be re-shaped. I haven't had a proper haircut in four months and I think I messed up the layers by trimming the ends with cuticle scissors over the bathroom sink.
(I really shouldn't be smiling so big with lopsided layers.)
BaskInStyle (http://baskinstyle.blogspot.com) booked an appointment for us both at Cutting Edge Salon in Little Italy/Chinatown. Her hair always looks good and her haircut only costs $26. My guy Dean at Cutler Salon in SoHo is $110 and I don't know if I'm willing to shell that out right now. What to do, what to do...
