Fashion & Style

I have a confession, everyone: I love reality TV. I limit myself to a select handful of shows (if by handful you mean that I have extra fingers to hold on with), but I just can’t get enough of the amazing cake and culinary shows out there.

The show I love most of all, however, is not about cake, but about clothes, and it is a powerhouse in fashion TV here in the United States. This fashion TV reality... Read more

Like a lot of handmade artists and designers (most?), GalleriaLinda's jewelry designs are not driven heavily by fad market trends.

Highly creative people are drawn to create their vision first; then everything else falls into place wherever it falls. We create from our hearts and our designs are a part of us. Handmade designs are not produced for a calculated market. That is what sets apart handmade... Read more
Some time in December my friend invited me to a party/shopping event that was held at her friend’s studio, a fashion designer Zanesha Gowrali or Zan, as everybody calls her.

I’ve never been to an event like that, so I was intrigued. Party and shopping combined in one seemed like a perfect combination.

The place wasn’t far from me, near King and Bathurst in the old brick building. Zan and her... Read more

I found this gal from LA, who has the most incredible blog called My Vintage Vogue

She has scanned in the most glorious photos from Vogue ranging from the 1920' s to the 1960's.

There is so much to look at! I have to show some real restraint and... Read more
If you want to know whether something is fake or not, it isn’t the brand that gives it away, but where it’s made. The source of these imitiations is primarily Korea, Hong Kong, and China.

Finally mass production comes in handy! :)

Apparantly, the copiers produce such realistic copies, the Tokyo Customs staff are not qualified to make a determination about whether a particular good is genuine... Read more
High fashion is no more? Casual is the new cool? What's the world coming to when fashion can be comfortable?

Why even bother changing out of your pajamas at all? That was the sentiment behind the spring men's collections that wrapped up recently in Milan, Italy.

Men have turned their backs on the "metrosexual" look in lieu of a more comfortable, rumpled, and supposedly "manlier"... Read more
Ruslana Korshunova, just 20 years old, appears to have jumped to her death in Manhattan's financial district. The sad news has shocked her friends and family, who saw Korshunova as a kind woman, climbing the ranks of the fashion industry after gracing covers of French Elle and Russian Vogue.

The pal said that Korshunova had just returned from a modeling gig in Paris and seemed to be "on top of the... Read more
