Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Category Archives: Style
Laura and Kate Mulleavy’s latest collection is awash in cerulean blue, bright purple and yellow prints. It’s sharp, bubbly and brimming with a joyfulness not seen in their previous collections. The reference point was Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night and Sunflowers, both of which could be seen liberally translated onto full skirts and slim dresses.

To say that I’m “clutch-obsessed” is an understatement. I’m a full-blown, self-professed addict of these neat little purses. Having practiced all summer, I am now a pro at fitting my daily essentials into a clutch (hint, hint: It all begins with a mini hold-all wallet). So this fall I’m not putting away my clutches for sturdier and larger bags. Instead, I’m looking for clutches done in heavy fabrics and autumn colors. My first find was a delectable goodie by Rue 114. The Africa Rising Collection celebrates the “endless riches of Africa” and features animal and other organic prints in beige and brown. I’m partial to the Bamako clutch for the simple geometric lines of the mud cloth. But I also recommend checking out the other collections in the Rue 114 Etsy shop because you can’t beat one-of-a-kind style for $35 to $45!

Well, imagine that. I have a total fashion boner for J. Crew’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Yeah, it’s basically more of the same from them, but the same is awesome. Fancy-lookin’ skirts dressed down by button-down shirts! Lady-like shapes unstuffy-fied (yeah, I made that verb up) by more colors than a bag of tropical Skittles! I’m in! Click onward to see some of my very favorite pieces and one gratuitous photo of a male model (center) I would like to make out with.
This past weekend I stumbled into the Brooklyn headquarters of the Sketchbook Project and I’m now one of its biggest fans. Around for the past six years, the Sketchbook Project is a traveling library of artist sketchbooks that has a permanent home in Brooklyn. Visitors to the project can browse through and explore literally thousands of artists’ books, and see the creative process at work. Those who don’t live along the tour — Chicago, Portland (Maine and Oregon), Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, London, Melbourne and Vancouver and L.A. — can also flip through thousands of books online, searching by artist, theme or location.
And that’s not all! Keep reading »

Tonight’s the premiere of “America’s Next Top Model: All-Stars”! In honor of Tyra and her crew of also-rans, I have asked The Frisky staff to attempt their best smize or “Top Model”-ish pose for today’s “What Are We Wearing?” photos. We even did a group shot. (Jessica wasn’t feeling so “fierce” today and instead played the role of Nigel Barker.) What do you think? Would Andre Leon Talley invite us into his salon or scream “Dreckitude!” in our faces?
