Street style fashion week favorite and accessories editor for Marie Claire magazine, Taylor Tomasi Hill, can now add model to her CV. Tay was featured in The Block F/W issue donning the seasons hottest numbers from Valentino, Altuzzara, Dries van Noten etc. Her fire breathing hair and penchant for style mixology has deserved her an almost cult following (guilty) in the fashion community and rumor has it that she has been bestowed the ever-so-auspicious position as Barney's New York fashion director?! Cheers to Mrs.Tomasi Hill!
I am enamored not only by this chica's style but also her infectious persona. Alex Spencer is the voice and stunning face behind 4th and Bleeker. Spencer's witty banter and taste in music is what keeps her on my blog playlist. I have been following her since the day she started and not shortly after did we all watch Alex appear all over the world wide web, taking the fashion world by storm. I describe her style as rock and roll diluted by parisian allure, and is an addiction I haven't quite come to terms with. I am beyond excited for her success and wanted to share one of my favorite blogs with you guys.

Ok, I know Paris fashion week is over; and this has been blogged to death by every fashion blog in the free world...but I must pledge my allegiance to maybe the best collection for Spring 2012..I'll spare you the details and leave you with the visuals..enjoy!

Makeup is not something I use all that often, but when I go out I like to turn it up, not MAC full borderline tranny face but maybe the latest look Nars has circulating on the runways. One look that I cannot seem to master is the sultry, always night appropriate "smokey eye". This editorial is the perfect visual aid for what I want to emulate, using different colors(purple,green,blue), 'smokey' can actually appear soft rather than the harsh black we're used to seeing. My eye shape is not a viable candidate (almond), so I have to do extra tricks to compensate for my lack in lid space. Hopefully, the abyss that is Youtube has tutorials for the beauty inept. I think I will start there!

Two looks that are on repeat in my mind. I love both women displayed here, mainly Joan for her off- duty- street- ready ensembles and Alexa for her effortless propensity at mixing girly frills and boyish charm. I think I'm going to put the pic of Joan on etsy to see if someone is able to make this Rodarte creation that evaded me several seasons ago. Alexa is a style fortress and the perfect Valentino poster girl, she's been photographed wearing a few of their designs lately. I have a friend who just graduated from fashion design school, hopefully I can make this crimson beauty a reality.

New found treasure from my monthly sweep at the thrift store. Its crazy how you have something on your mind, like this suede fringe jacket and you unexpectedly find it at a thrift store; its like finding the wizard at the end of the yellow brick road, no one can describe it unless your a maniacal thrifter like myself, it reminds me of Isabel Marant this season. Python print is 'big' again (always in style for me) so I couldn't say no to this silk sensation, everything is better with leather and I can definitely see myself wearing this all season. The metallic baseball tee will be perfect to wear with skirts and trousers. I scored an amazing velvet dress that is not only '40s perfect but immersed in fall's romantic jewel tones. Zara.com is seriously out for all of my money as I made another order last week. I've been looking for the perfect black pump you know sexy, classic, but with a bite; our dear friends at Zara achieved shoe Utopia. Add to bag...Checkout! I know you probably noticed the whimsical artwork on the wall, well this is the work of my friend Adriana Sharpe. I think she captured the true essence of the peacock, it evokes a freeing feeling when I look at it. What do you see? Checkout her blog here
My Milan and Paris selections. Karl put on a show of enchantment at Chanel with a sorbet palette of suits,chiffon maxi's, and swimwear. Roberto Cavalli had the wardrobe of the perennial glam girl covered, while at YSL, Pilotto put together a collection that was minimal with the right amount of elegance and class (well the ysl aesthectic perfected) with beautiful jewel tones thrown in the mix....oh and did I mention the shoes??!!!
Ann D. never disappoints, saying 'no' to the typical floral prints and bright colors we associate with the spring season and showing a collection that was pure gothic elegance with a haunting yet refreshing mood... saving the best for last in the form of a edited video..Madame Marant displayed the most enviable collection...oversized parkas, bangin' bodycon dresses, ankle skimming sandals, and the perfect knit pieces for the resident cool girl.
