Iconic Price & Style: D'Orsay Flats

Right after Fashion Week in February I met with the Lyst team at Soho House in West Hollywood. One of the directors had a bag from Satine—the fashion emporium in Los Angeles— in her hands. Inside were a pair of D’Orsay flats from Jenni Kayne.

“They make your feet bleed for 48-hours, but afterwards they’re the most comfortable things ever,” she said.

    GUCCI Guilty: Black is Beautiful

    I’m a fragrance enthusiast. I’ve teared up a few eyes and been asked on more than one occasion to wear less scent by co-workers and schoolmates. However, I always forge ahead regardless of who I offend, and most of the time I get stopped in the street for info on my personal mixes. And I never wear just one scent. I always mix it up. Creating my own personal scent bar from beautiful bottles and various designers.

      Moda Operandi's Punk Pieces - Met Ball 2013 - Punk: Chaos to Couture

      Remember when punk fashion was something that only the downtown kids did? Stockings with holes and Coutney Love were the symbols of this era and shopping for these types of clothing involved taking the subway almost to Alphabet City.

      However, since anyone who’s anybody now lives downtown, it’s no surprise that punk fashion is making a mainstream debut with the stamp of approval from Vogue. This year’s Costume Institute Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is called Punk: Chaos to Couture; last night’s MET Ball—the Oscars of the East Coast—was its kickoff event.

        Fashionably Saved: How I Save Money & Time by Shopping Smart

        It’s no secret that us fashion bloggers like to shop. We got into the business because of our passion for clothes, accessories and of course, shoes. However, the bigger our blogs get the more pressure we can feel to have the latest fashion gadget (read: hottest bag), and the more our readers look to us as style guides.

        Luckily, the more popular a blogger gets the more gifts we also receive from our favorite brands. However, while we may get the newest denim or jewelry, for most of us, Chanel and Celine are not sending us gifts daily. For me the balance between shopping smart and investing in key and classic pieces rather than on-trend fashion is paramount to my business and bank account.
