Hello, fashion friends!

Set your radars on style because this Wednesday, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week officially begins in NYC. This time, for the first time, I will actually have a legitimate pass inside the tents, so keep your purty eyes tuned to PinkMemo, where I’ll be brilliantly ruminating about fall’s runways.

I’ve already been to see some pre-week events that you can read all about tomorrow.

Sing with me, people – ding dong ding – it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

See you online!


PS – if there are any fashion stylists out there who don’t mind working pro-bono; I could use some help.

Judgment Day

Hey kids! It’s finally judgment day (well, alright. It was yesterday, but out of respect for MLK, I refrained).

I’ve had a few things to say on the matter of this year’s Golden Globes, many of which, you can find on PinkMemo by simply clicking here.

The other thing is this:

VICTORIOUS! See?!? Excessive drinking – and a roofie or four – always equals success.

Tipsy Tip of the Day

Vintage wares smell like grandma? Mad Men‘s costumer designer Janie Bryant has a boozy trick to help.

Mix one part vodka (delicious!) to two parts water and spray all over your new old piece to remove musty odors.

Feel free to double this recipe. Half for your new tweed jacket, half for you!

It’s Beginning to Lagerfeld a Lot Like Christmas.

Ladies and Gentleman: I give you the unemployed person’s Christmas tree, where one stir-crazy, laid-off worker has enough time on their hands to craft 70 paper flowers and adorn them, oh-so-Lagerfeld-like, on a premium balsam beauty. Depending on HGTV’s show schedule today, I may not be finished.

Inspired by the Chanel Haute Couture runway…

Executed a little less on the “couture” part. But look at this craftsman work, would you!?

Were I a better photographer or Photoshop master, you’d be swooning.

Have a fabulous Christmas and may your holidays be haute.

xxx, kk

No Pants Party!

Just when you got comfortable in your short shorts, fashion goes even more extreme.

I don’t even want to wear a bathing suit to the beach, let alone to a party. There goes eating lunch.

He just needs a few bones (to the tune of around $50 million), and then Tom Ford can launch his [insert fanfare here]…

…womenswear line!

If there was ever a charitable cause, this is it. Reach deep into your pockets, people, and send him a check. It could happen as soon as fall 2010; I’ll possibly be naked until then.
