a year in the life: the Gilmore Girls have grown up (and so have we)

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've been patiently waiting for the Serious Netflix Event that is Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, spending your time looking up photos of Alexis Bledel and wondering what her baby with Pete from Mad Men would look like.

November 25th has come and gone. Tucked into bed with a family-size plate of Thanksgiving leftovers, I prepared myself for 6 hours of pure Lorelai and Rory goodness.

I should have learned my lesson when Fuller House came out. I should have known. I should have known.

floppy hats and felted ones, too.

Finding a hat that looks nice on me is a struggle! Blame it on an oddly-sized cranium due to sitting too close to the tv every Saturday morning of my youth plus an obsession with texting that has permanently burned my retinas. In a sea of choices, here are a few toppers that have caught my eye. The peach-colored fedora by rag & bone is not only a great way to stand out in the crowd, but also on sale!

IFM: an intro

Paris is (undeniably) the capital of fashion. Home to the top couture houses in the world, Paris also boasts some of the top-level schools in fashion design, creation and management.

In France, the Ivy-League schools are referred to as Grands Ecoles, "big" schools that enjoy name-recognition with a significant price-tag to boot. 

In 2016, the IFM (Institut Français de la mode) ranked in as the #1 fashion school in France, and #3 worldwide.

The school offers classes in both English and French, as well as summer school programs. Founded in 1986 by Pierre Bergé, the school maintains a strong connection with professional organizations and fashion houses in it goal to provide a practical education with an emphasis on experience over theory. To put it lightly, if you can make it at the IFM, you can make it anywhere. 

If you're interested in applying the IFM, there are many important factors to consider. Stay tuned for more!

parisian romance

Halloween may not be a huge deal in France as it is in America, but the French don't joke around--I've got a found-day weekend, no school until Wednesday! I'm off to Deauville tomorrow and in the spirit of all things French and chic, I'm channeling a '90s DKNY vibe: no shoulders.

I'm not usually a big matching-set kind of girl, but I love the selection at AdoreMe lingerie. It's a company that overs a wide-range of sizes without losing any of the femininity. There's really something for everyone!

first fashionista.

For those of you living under a damn rock, Michelle Obama just stepped out in a rose-gold chain mail dress custom-made by Versace Atelier for her last ever State Dinner as First Lady First Fashionista. 

Yes and yes and yes and yeeeeessss.

Let's go back in time and review one of the most iconic materials to ever grace the runway. The year is 1982...

The famous title of "supermodel" had just become a thing, and France's future Première Dame was just a runway model with a penchant for chain-smoking and blunt bags. Kate and Naomi were forging a beautiful friendship over their shared height-issues.


Chain metal would be one of the signature looks of Gianni Versace's creations until his death in 1997. That July, he would send gold chain mail year down the runway in July, while Caroline Murphy would wear one of his creations to the Met Gala which honored him with a retrospective of his designs.

The fall/winter collection of 2012 brought back the chain-mail, in lighter silver tones.

Can we please look at sassy Lindsey Wixson here? Microbangs be damned, she looks great.
