TEAM KATIE

Let’s call this what it is. Katie Gallagher is one to watch. In September the young designer presented her SS11 collection in the heart of New York’s garment district to a lot of buzz – and I was lucky enough to snap some photos… Styled by like-minded visionaire Kate Lanphear, the collection showed the versatility of the forward thinking creative.  Though she primarily works with witchy black fabrics among other noncolors,by adding punchy hues such as  slick patent reds, athletic blues, and violet, the designer flexed her alternative muscle… At once a bit Hackers raver with splash of nostalgic High School sports team vibes. A subversively sexy collection made for the wanton desires of your inner goth. Am I the only girl who has one?

A FALL FEELING

Just a quick set of photos of Diane Kruger in this month’s Contributing Editor. Part of me really wants to hate Diane, cause she’s like this alien-esque freaky deeky example of perfect. She never looks messed up or dishelved – and don’t get me started on my theory of how her and Joshua Jackson are a total setup. Conspiracy theory much? Really they are darling, but I find it hard not to poke truth holes in their picture-perfect life.

Anyhooo how nice and fall-feeling are these pictures? Camel, rust, navyyyyyyy!

NOLITA AFTERNOON WITH CALIFORNIA LOVERS

In June, two of my very favorite California ladies came to stay in my small Brooklyn apartment. But (CHEESEBALL ALERT!) my heart was big enough to fit the both of them into my life for two straight weeks of raucous fun. End of sentimental sidebar… Mallory quickly fell in love with wandering the SoHo streets, clearly a superb morning activity after coffees at Saturday’s and pastries at Balthazar. I showed them around NoLIta and we had an impromptu photoshoot with their favorite Botkier bags from our Fall collection.PS.. Hi REBECCA, Hi MALLORY, hope this is only MILDLY embarrassing.

Rebecca is carrying one of my favorites, the Conor crossbody in black. It’s really more of a charcoal, which is how I justify adding it to my already too large of a collection of BLACK bags. Giggle.

Mallory flaunts the Maddie satchel in leopard. Surprise surprise my other favorite! Too many bags on my list right now – NEED HELP. She is in front of one of my favorite restaurants, L’Asso! She was recently scolded by a coworker for not brushing her hair enough but isn’t her hair so perf beachy wavy casualcool awesome? Love it and love her! Come back to me, both of yous.

BABY SPICE

Who else could make these little works of art other than Jeffrey Campbell? I mean, four-inch pale pink suede platform wedge sandals with a ridiculously kitch daisy on top? Pretty sure someone might have been on acid when they dreamed up this pair of shoes, but I. don’t. even. care. I’m head over heels for these heels. Also please ignore the chipping tiles in my bathroom. Let’s just say I live in a ‘pre-war’ building and leave it at that.

BOY MEETS GIRL

A bit of classic menswear inspiration is just what the doctor ordered for Fall. I’ll throw on a oversized fedora or bowler cap, but add a red lip to keep it girly.

UNDRESSED

I just adore this VPL lookbook. Victoria Bartlett is a wizard at making sexy underthings – obsessed.

A sidenote: the shoes she makes in collaboration with LD Tuttle are ALWAYS epic. Look at those suede numbers above!

It’s true. I can’t help myself but i love a good slightly sexy granny panty . Shh.

FROM THE EAST COAST TO THE BEST COAST, HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE BUCKWALD!

Today is a very special occasion, the birthday of the extraordinary Kate Buckwald. To wish Kate Buckwald a very happy birthday, today the party dress is hosting a fancy party for the birthday girl. We originally bonded over bicycle rides and french lessons in Santa Barbara, but soon realized we both shared an obsession for Law and Order Special Victims Unit and Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga.

There will be dancing. Prancing, a bubble machine, and truffle fries.

All of the most important guests have been flown out to Kate’s Savannah Home. Isn’t it absolutely divine? Did you know Kate Buckwald is known as “The Only Cool Person From Georgia?”

These important guests include Mister Tom Ford and Nick Hoult, both head to toe in Tom Ford.

Beyonce stops by to show her support. She sings an acoustic version of Single Ladies, and then has to jet off to Japan to sign some records for fans.

The entire party noshes on peaches. Georgia peaches! And cream.

Time for presents! Nicolas Ghesquiere could not make the party, obligated to finish Spring 2011 sportswear and such, but he did sent air mail from France. Yes, this lovely pair of geometric oxford heels. What else is the birthday princess supposed to wear dancing?

And from me? A red bicycle, which needs a little backseat, non? Soon it will be ready to ride around the breezy Santa Barbara streets!
