La Di Da It’s Fashions Night Out!

Pssst … Have you heard? It’s Fashions Night Out–the third annual retail explosion-a-thon where mega-retailers and indie designers alike stay open late as a sort of a commercial nuit blanche, aimed at encouraging customers to engage with their stores, check out new items and buy, buy, buy. Started by Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America, FNO was meant to help boost the economy after the economic downturn of 2008. Personally, Fashions Night Out makes me want to crawl in a hole and die, but if you’re into it–check out what’s going on in your town simply by Googling. You can also see what’s going on in NYC–the de facto home of FNO on the FNO website. And let us know if you got any great steals or deals in the comments! Keep reading »

Fashion Week Breakdown: Yummy Colors, Fun Prints & Nekkid Shoulders At BCBG

This morning, on my way to work at the bright-eyed hour of 8 a.m., I was joined in the elevator by one of the long and lithe fashion models that live in my apartment building. I don’t see them that often, as they tend to keep odder hours than my usual nine-to-five. I wonder why she’s up to early? I wondered, covertly starring (up) at her as the floors ticked downward. Her face was scrubbed free of makeup and she was thumbing through an appointment book. Oh wait! Duh. It’s fashion week, I recalled. I had blocked it out sort of. I very much love clothes, but I am not particularly fond of discussing them in great depth, which is why I “read” Luckylike a picture book. And that is exactly how we are going to be presenting some of the Spring/Summer 2012 collections being shown at New York Fashion Week; pithy intros plus photos of pretty clothes! First up is BCBG, a line that is actually kind of sort of affordable for us non-rich types. Three things I love about this collection:

        1. The colors: Lime! Lemonade! Cerulean! (I think?)
        1. The prints: The Missoni-esque stripes are lovely, but I’m especially obsessed with the mix of more “ethnic” prints with architectural color-blocking.
        1. The open shoulders: I’m sorry, but who doesn’t have gorgeous shoulders? This trend is something I can get behind because it would flatter everyone.

That, my friends, is as “fashion talk-y” as I am going to get today. Click onward to see a bunch of the looks from the BCBG Spring/Summer 2012 runway show!

Shopping Guide: 9 Cool Cropped Trenches

Among your cadre of summer-to-fall jacket options, consider the cropped trench. It’s cute, versatile and can be worn as both outerwear and — if you’re feeling particularly daring — as a blazer. We saw a girl wearing one today and were particularly covetous of the easy way the blazer fell over her long T-shirt and seemed to flop just perfectly over her clavicle. We’ve assembled 10 options for your perusal. Let us know what you think!

September 7: What Are We Wearing Today?

The Frisky staff agrees on many things. We disagree on lots too. One of those things happens to be the weather. Crazy, layer-loving Jessica is thrilled that “colder weather” is on its way, while I am already anticipating an early start to my usual bout of winter-induced seasonal depression. Ahh, well. I can’t always get my way. Keep clicking to see what we’re wearing today…
