Taking down crime, one bag at a time

Marc Jacobs must be happy.

Yesterday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg gathered up a team of police officers to raid "The Counterfeit Triangle" of Canal, Walker and Centre Streets in New York City. Bloomberg shut down over 32 businesses that sold counterfeit merchandise, including Louis Vuitton purses, sunglasses and scarves.

Trembled Blossoms

Whether you love or hate Prada's Spring/Summer 2008 Art Nouveau collection, you have to watch the Trembled Blossoms video on The haunting music and imaginative graphics completely entranced me.

Just a thought...

This dress from the Marchesa Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear collection might be perfect for a certain celeb looking to hide a baby bump at the Oscars tomorrow night.

Vintage Cool

I think my grandparents really loved wearing prints. They were such fashion risk-takers.

Fight for the Right

The BBC reports that Turkey is expected to lift its ban on Muslim women wearing headscarves in universities. Since two-thirds of Turkish women wear headscarves, this will open up education to many who couldn't take advantage of it before. They still can't cover their necks, though.

Brush with Destiny

I just got one step closer to my lifelong dream: meeting Marc Jacobs. My friend Matthew went to NY Fashion Week (Bryant Park) and loittered in front of the tents, mingling with celebs and designers alike. He witness MJ pull up in some sort of awesome automobile and walk right past him into the tents. Then he sent me a text pic of the car. It was like I was there.

On a side note, I met Matthew in Paris, while he worked for a graphic design firm with clients like the one and only Christian Lacroix. He tried to get MJ's address for me from his bosses, who were very much in-the-know, but they wouldn't give away MJ's personal contact info to a "crazy American girl."

A last thing...I told a Syracuse friend about this exciting sighting, and he called my icon "an over-sexed, middle-aged man." What?!
