A week in Vogue

This past Sunday was a most spectacular day spent at the Frist museum. I arrived in the nick of time to hear the likes of Supermodel, Karen Elson and Grace Coddington, Creative Director of American Vogue speak about their fascinating journeys through the world of fashion. While I would have enjoyed a bit of audience interaction with a short Q&A, I have to say the event was entirely worth $50. My favorite part of the discussion was when Karen Elson recollected a moment when the famed model agent Eileen Ford, told her that her new look created by Steven Meisel would end her career forever. Elson's response was "Never let anyone tell you can't do anything" Clearly, she heeded her own advice.
This thursday Nashville was visited by yet another American Vogue notable, contributing editor Andre' Leon Talley. The event was hosted by Nordstrom in an effort to promote their newest title “Vogue: The Editor’s Eye,” If you were lucky enough to catch the private lunch earlier in the day you would have experienced an more intimate moment with Mr. Talley. However, being that the fashion presentation later in the evening was a free event open to the public, crowd control had to be established. Never one to be a celebrity gawker, I chose to admire ALT in his Chanel chamber from afar while canoodling with some of my very favorite Nashville fashion compadres. Later that evening I caught the "In Vogue, The Editors Eye" documentary on HBO. A truly mesmerizing look on the inside of what happens behind the scenes at Vogue. In so many words, all of the burning questions I so desired to ask all week were answered in a 90 minutes time. Photos courtesy of The Tennessean

Wallis Simpson

It has been a long while since my last post. Nobody ever told me how intense planning a wedding could be ;) For the record, my wedding was like a fairy tale dream! While honeymooning in Turks and Caicos I read "The Shadow Queen" by Rebecca Dean. It is a fantastic book about the life of Wallis Simpson. If you don't know anything about Wallis Simpson she was an American socialite whose third husband, Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom and the Dominions, abdicated his throne to marry her. Her story is fascinating but what is more fascinating was her willingness to break the mold in fashion in her circle. For instance she designed her first wedding gown in white velvet, a fabric that was not widely used during that time or at all. Not to mention she was muse to Elsa Schiaparelli need I say more? ;)

Sheila Metzner

I love new discoveries! The other day while perusing the bookshelves of Goodwill, I happened upon this great coffee table book "Color" by Sheila Metzner. I am a sucker for old books, especially fashion books and gasped with delight when I opened the pages to discover the photographic work of Sheila Metzner. Her work is eery, dreamy and romantic all in one. You have probably seen her work in magazines but what I love about it is that there remains anonymity to it, because her style is so timeless it is very relevant and could easily have been shot by a modern day photographer. For more information on Sheila Metzner visit 2pxV4TmpJLw/T9C_OdUKEAI/AAAAAAAAMYM/kav_ZxsvqAQ/s1600/uma_thurman_sheila_metzner_hTXGfNb.sized.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear:left; float:left;margin-right:1em; margin-bottom:1em"> What strikes me the most about her imagery is that it is natural and untainted, a quality in photographic work that I strictly adhere to.

Forever Young

As some of you may already know, I recently started working for Forever 21 as a Visual Merchandiser. I am loving the job in more ways than one, not only am I learning a ton about merchandising, I am surrounded by the most stylish people everyday! From a stylist's perspective, it is so cool to see how people mix their wardrobes with high and low street finds. I realize there are a lot of haters of F21 out there, but your whining is null and void when you see the way kids wear these clothes.
As a result of my inspiration I have decided to begin posting a series of the most adorably dressed F21 employees to share with you.

Nashville Fashion Week Day 3

I truly enjoyed last night's festivities. Fantastic installations dreamed up by local independent designers dispersed throughout Marathon Music Works made for an evening of whimsical spectacle.
Two standout installations were Tuft by Jessica Jones and Black by Maria Silver!

Tuft by Jessica Jones, this collection is dear to my heart because I had the chance to help her style it with accoutrements by my very own vintage clothing line Parlour, along with accessories by House of Stella, Stacy Pelerossi's fabulous Franklin shop! Jessica's installation was dreamed up by the California sounds of Indie rock duo Beach House. Her vision was of a girl band rockin out on bubble gum pink instruments and the vision was solid. Tinsel dresses, pastel yumminess, NYLON Magazine here she comes!

Black by Maria Silver (aka Poni Silver of the wicked indie outfit The Ettes) screamed sex and rock and roll with it's decadent vampiric edge. Studs, corsets, ladies and gentleman lounging... it's no secret this girl is a badass and we'll be seeing a lot more of her in the glossies!
