Before you know it, Labor Day and the very-much-anticipated New York Fashion Week will be just around the corner (read: brace yourselves for another frigid winter). But fret not, my dears: this Alexander Wang cowl-neck dress is a to-die-for transitional piece for your last round of summer cocktail-garden parties.
There’s the impeccable draping in classic A.Wang style, of course, but also a worth a mention are both the unexpectedly uber-cool-sexy asymmetrical cut of the dress and the gorgeous ‘butterscotch’ color! Bisous!

Bereft of my favorite lip and cheek tint since it was discontinued several years ago, I’ve been after the perfect balance of pigment, sheen and staying power for what seems like an eternity. Then I found my holy grail: Francois Nars’ Multiple tint. Available in three fabulous summer shades: Beverly Hills, a bright red, Cadaques, a bright fuchsia tint, and Turks & Caicos, a bright orange.
NARS Multiple Tint is perfect for getting that, “I just ate a cherry, raspberry or orange popsicle” look, and what could more quintessentially summer than that?

It was McQueen Mania at the Met last night, as the Costume Institute celebrated the designer and his body of work in their annual fundraising fête.
But the mania was well deserved, if regrettably posthumous. Few designers accomplished what McQueen accomplished with his work: an artistry that transcended his medium and lived purely in the world of fantasy, but that embodied so thoroughly what the rest of the world of designers and luxury giants are perpetually blathering on about: clothes that are, at their core, aspirational.
Master Milliner Philip Treacy said of the maelstrom at the Met: ”[McQueen] wouldn’t have come…”
My personal favorites, after the jump. [Clearly, Guinness is a goddess in McQueen, and as per usual completely overshadowed the myriad others who could only pay their lesser homage to Lee...]
It never fails.
The pattern is simple, if difficult to control: I walk into a store, any store, and find myself immediately drawn to them. All other shoes around me fade away; my heart races. Love at first sight. Yes, I am talking about a pair of shoes.
In this instance, it’s a pair of the most insanely gorgeous, electric blue suede, peep-toe pumps. Even the height of the heel is perfection. The store? Barney’s, of course.
The Copley location’s shoe floor is both a source of delight and frustration for me: always some new love affair, and not being able to afford them all at once, I am always forced to leave a few aside. Heartbreaking but true.
