When America was experiencing a booming economy, the idea of luxury translated to excessive procurement. Vera Wang available at Khol’s, Karl Lagerfeld designed for H&M, and Luella licensed for Target with little varience in highend branding. The very definition of fashion trickled down with such amazing speed that Zara’s business model became an intreguing research opportunity for Harvard Business school. It was almost as if the traditional bound laggards adapted before the innovators could create.

Process of Adopting New Fashion.

I wonder if tonight’s House rejection of the $700 billion dollar rescue plan (a Republican decision), will create a halt on bridge line retailing by securing a distinct separation of class consumerism.

Clothes are my medium.

Like an artist I would like to equate my moments of expression with the medium of clothes. I braved myself out of black to wear an impressionist ruffle number from BCBG. I was at The Thompson Hotel in SoHo this weekend while sipping on Gin Saketini’s conversing nonsensically with Sun. Let me know what you think of my butterfly-esque top.

Da Milano il mio amore!

Now that I have downloaded the Style.com application to my iPod I can’t stop reading the reviews and looking at all the new pictures from the Milan show!!! Here is what I loved!!!

PRADA

At first I couldn't figure it out, then I hated it's simplistic crinkled shined fabrics, then I started to really love it!

MILAN, September 23, 2008 By Sarah Mower

There was something fabulously Italian about all this shameless reveling in femininity. The fifties overtones, with the high chignons, the ruched bras, and swishing rear action in the below-knee pencil skirts, managed to channel the heyday of Cinecittà without cliché. Best of all, this is a collection destined to look even better on a woman with a real body than it does on a teen model. And that, Mrs. Prada surely knows, really is “what counts.”

BLUEMARINE

I absolutely loved the detailed beading of Anna Molinari for Bluemarine. Perfectly stunning.

Yes, I chose this dress from the Reem Acra runway show as my favorite and Christina Applegate wore it to the Emmy’s!!!! I think this deems that I have a good eye, even though they are small and slanted… and land on all the wrong men.

My post about the Reem Acra show.
