September is the fashion industry’s new year. Between fashion week and magazines’ September issues, we are all ready for a fresh start in this season’s finest. Do you have a resolution? My fashion resolution is to wear all the pieces I’ve deemed “special.” You know the ones. They sit in your closet mocking you- that fabulous Helmut Lang skirt (or, ahem, 3) that is just waiting for the perfect night on the town. Or maybe it’s a pair of glittered Louboutin booties crying for you to show them a good time. This fashion new year, I’m rocking them all. Whether it be sequined Iro jeans or Jill Stuart butter soft tees, I’m not going to wait for the “perfect” occasion to wear them. I will make my own reasons to dress in my fantastic pieces. Helmut to the nail salon; Marc to a dive bar. No more excuses! It’s time we all break boundaries and embrace our beautiful clothes. If so, I suspect it will be glorious. Happy New Year!
Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? I love this trend board from PETA and it’s completely free of animal materials.
Oh how I loved yin-yangs in the ’90s. Might need this jacket just for nostalgia.
