You Need to Know About: 5 Days, 5 Looks, One Girl

I absolutely love Vogue.com’s 5 Days, 5 Looks, One Girl feature. The recently revamped series offers a glimpse into the wardrobe of a different Vogue staffer each week, with outlines and descriptions of each look. It’s like a street style blog with only Vogue editors! The most recent Voguette to be featured is Emily Weiss (check out my recent post about her blog here). A Vogue Fashion Assistant and author of beauty blog Into the Gloss, Emily knows a thing or two about putting together the perfect look. She mixes high and low pieces – check out that black Zara jumpsuit paired with Alexander Wang heels! – and adds interesting accessories to polish off each look. Emily’s looks are some of my favorites of the entire series! I need that gray Dennis Colomb scarf from Day 2. And those Celine platforms! L-o-v-e.

Red Carpet: Golden Globes 2011

It’s official: awards season is upon us! Last night’s Golden Globes kicked it off with a fabulous show (I think Ricky Gervais is hilarious), and an even better red carpet. Minimalism reigned, and green was the color of the evening – hello, Angelina Jolie! I adore Anne Hathaway’s shimmering Armani, and Claire Danes was right on with that pink frock. While I didn’t think there were any real fashion disasters (Helena Bonham Carter is the only exception here… why is she wearing two different color shoes?), there were several looks that left me cold. Julianna Margulies, anyone? I also had such high expectations for Natalie Portman, but I was left feeling underwhelmed by her Viktor and Rolf number.

I would love to hear your thoughts! Any favorites?

Here’s a little red carpet recap for your Monday morning:

Designer Spotlight: Vera Neumann

I’m devoting today’s post to one of my favorite textile designers: Vera Neumann. Vera began designing the iconic scarves she is known for today during World War II. While searching for linen (which was scarce at the time), Vera came across an abundance of parachute silk at an army surplus store … thus began her scarf business. The famous “Vera” signature logo was created as part of the process of silkscreening her paintings onto the scarves. An instant hit in the fashion world and in Hollywood (remember this famous picture of Marilyn Monroe with the Vera scarf?), the scarves turned Vera’s once small business into a $100 million international success.

The Vera Company still exists today, and continues to produce items with the late designer’s graphic prints. You can also find some very cool pillows on Etsy made out of the Vera scarves. Keep your eyes peeled while vintage shopping for one of her designs!

Must Watch: The Sartorialist

I have lots of internet favorites but no site gives me the of-the-moment style like The Sartorialist. (If you haven’t already added his site to your Google reader, you should!) Scott Schuman, aka “The Sartorialist,” truly captures what is happening in fashion at this moment in time with his fabulous street style shots. Now, thanks to Intel Visual Life, we can watch Schuman in action in this video. Who wouldn’t want to see what’s happening behind the lens? This video is a must see!


It’s official: the first week of 2011 has come and gone. Although I’ve never been a big fan of new year’s resolutions (I prefer to make resolutions throughout the year rather than all at once), but this year I’ve decided to make a small list of things I’d like to do in the next 365 (or 358 now, but who’s counting?) days. This is what I’ve put on my list. Did you make resolutions? I’d love to hear them!
