Tie dye: a timeless symbol of peace and love.

Pretty Posts |

Designers like Phoebe Philo for Old Celine and Proenza Schouler set the tone for positivity and some urgently-needed levity when they sent tie dye looks down the catwalks these last few seasons. Citizens of the world are desperate for a reprieve from the stress and exhaustion that right-leaning governments are creating with their anti-progressive policies and legislative measures, with their criminalization of asylum seekers, their devastating marginalization of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters, attacks on our religious families and continued racism against people of color. Fashion designers have always tapped into key cultural events for inspiration in their critique of government activity. This season’s tie dye trend is a message for the people. It says that peace and love are the way. Stay true to that, wear it on your sleeve and on your breast. And REMEMBER it when you vote next week.

Fall/Winter 18/19 is all about strong graphic prints; the big cats, the zebras, the reptiles, the flora, the tartans and the ubiquitous logos. Therefore, ladies and gentlemen (specifically Andrew), your friend here is living her Her. Best. Life. And, this is a great season for my wardrobe heroes. Take this Miu Miu checked blazer, it is currently my second skin. It somehow works with every single look that I put together. Maybe it just works with the 70s style palette currently dominating the scene  (and my closet). Or maybe it’s just that good. Roomy with boxy shoulders, a veritable 80s throwback (but refreshed), it manages to frame the ultimate FW18/19 silhouette. I can’t say enough how much I love finding a piece that gives so much in terms of wearability and style. Get used to seeing it a lot this season – I’m on outfit 152.

I will not take credit for this look, other than adding the Céline goggle-style sunglasses and these pink metallic booties. The outfit was a gift courtesy of Coach from their collaboration with Selena Gomez. The brand delivered it along with a beautiful bouquet of flowers to my hotel in NY during fashion week, and it was hanging in my closet when it arrived. It was a wonderful surprise…
