Facebook Finds – The Marciano Dress

February 22, 2009

I saw a couple of girls wearing this dress on Facebook. The color is absolutely stunning and I love the dramatic neckline. Seen below, it can be paired with leggings or without.

New Openings in White Rock

February 21, 2009

This tip was e-mailed to me from Faran Sperling.  Apparently a new BCBG opened in White Rock and there will be an H&M opening soon!  Hoorah!  This means when I go to visit relatives that I’ll have another place where I can blow all my money!  (You’re welcome, Recession).

The Best of NY Fashion Week – The Barbie Show

February 21, 2009

NY Fashion Week at Bryant Park winded down yesterday, and there are too many shows to name that were spectacular. To see it yourself, In Style has a great webpage to navigate through all the fashion shows.

My personal favorite was the Barbie Fashion Show, in celebration of Barbie’s 50th Anniversary. I was a bit nervous when I first heard they were going to do this. The Barbie Doll has stirred up many debates in the past, including the kind of impact this doll has on young girls and the message it sends.  Barbie’s proportions aren’t even physically possible  (if Barbie were human she would be 5’6, 110 pounds, with a 39-inch bust, an 18-inch waist and 33-inch hips… yikes!)

Luckily, when I first saw The Barbie Fashion Show I didn’t get the urge to barf all over my computer and run to the library and grab a copy of The Feminine Mystique.  The show celebrated Barbie more as a cultural icon and an influence on fashion.  It had so many avant-garde, creative pieces and showcased the designers’ talents.  Each piece was a work of art.  The Barbie Show looked like a lot of fun, I wish I could have been there!  Out of all of the designs, the last piece by Betsey Johnson was my favorite. For more looks, check out the In Style webpage or www.mbfashionweek.com.
