PSY makes GangNam Style into NY Style

As you have probably heard, there is currently an extremely viral music video making its way around the internet.

it’s called Gangnam Style – the song is by long-time korean recording artist PSY.

Not only is it utterly hysterical, but its also quite catchy. it’s already at 50 million youtube views and keeps climbing. pretty crazy!!

Anyway, I had the great honor of interviewing PSY at work yesterday.

He is funny, down-to-earth and totally laid back. a wonderful interview.

PSY: I think I’m handsome, but people say I’m not handsome.
Me: Really?
Psy: Yea. do YOU think im handsome?
Me: (looking at him…) sure, I think you’re handsome…
Psy: did you get that on camera?????

doesnt get much humbler than that.

he taught me how to do the famous horse-riding dance on the air, so i will be posting that soon, but until then, enjoy his video!!

Obsessed with the Hermes Collier de Chien Cuff Bracelet

The Hermes CDC is a fave of celebs including Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, and Victoria Beckham.
Also, just about every style editor in New York City has one of these cuffs.
Easy to see why, because you can wear it with EVERYTHING. Whether its to add some edge to a feminine pastel outfit or fully rock out in some black leather, this cuff is perfect. It comes in black and brown – being a wannabe rockstar, I love the way the black one looks. You can tell that it’s also geniusly engineered to fit and stay on your wrist.

Pricey though, at $1025.

Still, love it. Definite must-have for fashionistas in the know.

I miss fashion week

Yes, yes I know that I am always running around and a crazy person during fashion week (and sometimes during not-fashion-week) But this photo by my amazing photographer friend has brought back memories. And now I want to see pretty clothing on the runway and designers yelling at makeup artists and models pretending to eat backstage.

And I’m obviously texting Anna Wintour. Duh.

(hehe)

Shoes, Shoes, and More Shoes

First of all… I love that fashion is art and art inspires fashion and fashion and art can hold hands and skip across our world.

These custom-made Christian Louboutin pointe slippers are just gorgeous.

In other news, for mother’s day I bought my mom lunch.
For kicks, my mom and I bought me new Chanel shoes. I think I made out pretty well this mother’s day, despite not being a mom 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day to all! ❤

D-I-Y Finger Knit Pillow

Ok so i have about a ZILLION projects I need to do-myself.
But i love this one because it is just so simple and easy to do, and makes for such a sophisticated pillow!

You can finger knit the strips (or even better, get a bunch of friends/kids to help, bc that part is oh so much fun) then you just sew together into a pillowcase.

Brilliant

Hanging out with Walter Baker

Had a great time with one of my fave designers, Walter Baker, last night.
I cover his collection every season during fashion week – and everyone knows his show is always a party – but the clothes are also lovely.

Anyway, I’m obsessed with the yellow bowler bag in his new handbag line.

How cute is that?

Speaking of making flowers… Calla Lillies!

How flipping cute are these?!
with just some paper, string, and crepe paper you can make these gorgeous little flowers.

Just insert the small sliver of yellow crepe paper, fold the large paper around in lily shape, then as you make more, staple them all together.
finally, add a green leaf, punch a hole through it all, and tie with a ribbon. what a pretty adornment to any given package!
