I doo!

I always have a tough time with spring jackets. As an extremely polar person, I don’t see the point in having a light jacket that doesn’t serve its function for much of the season. Today, though, as I’m mindlessly going through Barneys (again, this time for competitive pricing), I come across the real life version of this trench I’ve been eyeing for a while.

  • Designer: doo.ri
  • Retail: $1995
  • Retailer: Barneys New York

The coat is even cuter in person ❤


Chie Mihara = Fashion + Function

I’ve been seeing this Japanese designer’s latest collection in West Village, and I LOVE! They’ve got really great gladiator sandals which I couldn’t find the pictures of. They retail for about $300 but the best part is that the husband of this husband-wife designer team is a podiatrist. All the shoes are made for fashionable comfort! Cost benefit analysis: Anyway, check out Chie Mihara.

Compare those with the MBT Swiss Masaius physiological footwear I came across in the Upper East Side…

Off the Runway

I’m usually not the star struck type, but Project Runway is definitely one of my favourite shows. I totally respect that these designers go through Heidi hell & pick themselves back up again. At Runway #5 auditions, I was lucky enough to meet Malan Breton of Season 3 and Christian, winner of Season 4!

Malan’s doing lots right now – he’s got a miniseries on BravoTV.com and his collection will be carried at Holt Renfrew.

This guy’s so tiny I feel fat next to him!
