I didn’t get to a lot of shows during New York Fashion Week because I had a big non-fashion-related event on Saturday, February 13, followed by the all-day Independent Fashion Bloggers Evolving Influence conference on Monday, February 15.
The Saturday event caused me to miss my designing friend Zang Toi‘s show for the first time in years. I was so sad, especially when I found out that a model took a wrong turn off the runway and wound up — according to one version of the story — lost in a closet. I miss all the excitement! At least I got to see Zang himself in the center of New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham’s Fashion week photo spread.
I also got to see Zang the day after his show for a Valentine’s Day celebration/Chinese New Year banquet. MrB was out of town so I skipped my usual Valentine’s Day Moschino heart dress and wore my heart-adorned Gemma Kahng leather vest instead.
I might need to expand my heart wardrobe before my anniversary in July. I would have loved to have this Jeremy Scott dress — even though the heart looks a bit like a bib — but it’s sold out.
This Yves Saint Laurent “le smoking” suit with a heart lapel is more serious. Perhaps too serious.
The Alexander McQueen heart-shaped peep-toe shoes are fun and (relatively) subtle — not that subtlety should ever be a consideration.
You know you’ve taken blogging to heart when you start mentally shopping for other bloggers. When I saw this heart-corset t-shirt by Victim, I immediately thought, “Queen Michelle!”
