Good morning color and commentary

February 27th, 2012 No Comments

Instead of a cup of coffee, I’m waking up this morning with a pop of color from Erdem’s Spring 2012 collection.  LOVE the pattern. Thanks to Neimans’ “new” tumblr?  I’m not sure if it’s new, but I discovered it this morning via their twitter.  It’s pleasant, nothing revolutionary.

Speaking of tumblr, I don’t go to my dashboard as much anymore.  From the countless articles, Pinterest seems to have stolen the social spotlight these days (despite David Karp, tumblr founder, on the cover of Fast Company this month).  I pin on my 7 boards every once in a while.  But, I’m committing to using it more, if only to find new recipes which seems to be the activity all the rage from the women I follow on Twitter.

Did anyone find the Oscars as uneventful I as did?  I’m even bored by the dresses.  I swear J Lo wears the same dress – absolutely the same hairdo – to every award show.  Thankfully Gweneth was there to save us with her refined and simple elegance.  Those mermaid cotton candy dresses even had my sugar tooth throbbing in pain.

I am happy for The Artist, such a brilliant piece of work.  Now we know that excellence will trump celebrity, even if he is George Clooney.

Ok, I’m about to make a little video to say hello again. Just let me get out of my pj’s and I’ll meet you back here in an hour or so.

Everyone loves Erdem!

September 6th, 2011 No Comments

A little more research has lead me to discover that everyone – designers, fashionistas, and celebs – is loving Erdem right now!

Marissa Tomei looks amazing in this shift dress at the W.E. premiere in Venice (via Glamour UK).

Erdem Moralioglu (a Canadian) is up for the Designer of the Year for the British Fashion Awards against Sarah Burton and Christopher Kane.  He lost last year, but it seems people are rooting for him as the underdog against Burton.  He’s won 2 British Council Awards in the last 6 years.

He says the woman who wears Erdem is “A clever person who probably cares little about seasons. She has a lot of conviction and marches to her own drum.”

I guess that’s why I quickly fell in love with line.  Now the only issue is getting my hands on one of these delicious silk frocks…(oh to be back in NYC where designer dresses just showed up at my door).  Maybe I can score one at the big Tootsies sale in January.  If they’re timeless, it shouldn’t matter when I buy one, right?

For now, let’s see what he comes out for spring!
