Cat Eyes and Kitten Heels

If you haven't caught my kitten/cat scratch fever obsessed drift by now, I'll clue you in: I have a fancy for the felines. I especially love it when designers incorporate these fury kitties into garments, shoes and jewelry. These past few seasons have been filled with a frenzy of cat prints and accessories, brought to you by a few of my favorite designers; Miu Miu, VivettaCharlotte Olympia, and Leah Goren. But this trend is not just limited to the obvious kitty decoration, it also encompasses two of my favorite styles of accessories: Cat Eye Sunglasses and Kitten Heels. Here are my picks for the season, which cat friendly trend can you not wait to get your paws on?

New York Fashion Week Memories

As New York Fashion Week nears, my work nights are becoming later and later. I really can't complain, my ongoing motivation comes from all the beautiful shows I've seen in the past, and the ones to come. The Marc Jacobs collection show this past Fall 2012 season was a truly breathtaking experience, and I am looking forward to attending the Spring 2013 show this NYFW. Here's a look down memory lane at my past 3 years attending New York Fashion Week. 

Stay tuned this September for a sneak peak at the MJ Spring 2013 show. Promise I'll post pictures as soon as I am home from the after party!

A Fairytale Princess

 Spending most of my childhood in Los Angeles where my mother worked, I got to spend a lot of time at Disney Land. So naturally I thought I was a princess. I mean... I was a princess, just not in the royal way. Another thing that has affected my aesthetic are my Mother's and my Aunt's love for antique furniture and jewelry. I have always loved my Aunt's corseted wedding dress that she made by hand. Being influenced by Marie Antoinette and Madonna, my Aunt used vintage lace, flowers and created a skirt with adjustable lengths using satin drawstrings. Her fairytale wedding inspired this post yesterday, and both my Mother and Aunt jumped at the opportunity to help. I collected props to add like my vintage rhinestone crown, vintage rhinestone bracelets, an old children's storybook, a bottle of fairy dust from Disney Land, my mom's Kate Spade satin bow shoes (very reminiscent of Cinderella), an antique rhinestone purse and an antique locket that is a family heirloom. I hope you enjoy this fairytale as much as I do!

I am thrilled to see the art deco styles of the 1920's and 30's coming back into style with Baz Luhrmann's (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge) The Great Gatsby coming out in 2013. I love the richness of Luhrmann's films and his beautiful art direction, each scene looks good enough to eat. Are you as excited as I am? 1. Metallic tulle dress by: Marc Jacobs, 2. Green beaded tassel earrings by: Oscar de la Renta Beaded headband by: Jennifer Behr Gold and black deco purse by: Gucci 5. Metallic t-strap heels by: Seychelles 6.
