Shop Kohls x Catherine Malandrino Now

Happenings on this website is a little sparse at the moment: my photographer is off galavanting Down Under and my new job has me snowed under. 

I do however have a few moments to provide you with a quick PSA - the Kohl's x Catherine Malandrino shop is open for business!

I hadn't shopped at Kohl's previously but as soon as I saw Olivia Palermo in the dress below, I knew it was time to pop my Kohl's-cherry:

I am a big  fan of Ms. Palermo's style and I only hope the detailing is as exquisite in real life as it appears in pictures.

Double Denim

Is it just me or is everyone else suffering from Fashion Week fatigue? While I love the to-the-minute update from those attending shows, I admit I much preferred life before Instagram. For someone rather time-poor during the day, having to incessantly scroll through the same blurry pictures taken from the same obscure angle is driving this social-media-embracer a little nuts. And don't get me started on the videos. Perhaps I should just unfollow the culprits and re-follow once the week is over? 

I complain but I love it. On Sunday, I made my usual pilgrimage to the Lincoln Center fountain for a bout of people-watching. The warm weather brought out the crowds and boy were there some stunning outfits - my favourite was a lady wearing this dress who was making a mad dash through the plaza on her way to, you guessed it, DVF; and a gamine Audrey Hepburn-lookalike in a simple soft-pink mini shiftdress with sleeves that ended with a dramatic trumpet-like cuff. Oh and plenty of ladies got the Clover Canyon memo. 

Naturally there were also the peacocks - strutting around in getups they wouldn't throw on otherwise - posing in such a way, someone had to take their photo. On that note, there were so many cameras that I think everyone with a DSLR was there to act out their street-style photographer extraordinaire fantasies. Like begets like I suppose. 

Regardless, all is well in the world where there is Bill

Anyway, the following outfit did not make an appearance at Lincoln Center but was taken a couple of weeks ago when I went to watch the annual India Day parade. Like last year, "Gandhi" made an appearance, and there were a new round of movie star VIPs - Vidya Balan, Sarathkumar and Raadhika, if you care about such things. I most definitely squealed when I spotted the latter two, yes I did.

P.s. if you had to know, I wore this dress to Lincoln Center - it was the easiest outfit to put on after a gruelling hour at Soul Cycle.

NYC Social - September

Happy September! I had such a relaxing Labor Day weekend that I couldn't get on the computer long enough to post this month's Social. It is unofficially the end of Summer - but if this month's events are any indication, the city isn't ready to slow down just yet! So check out what's happening this month (and last month too) and be sure to enjoy the remnants of the sunshine!

1. Fashion Week: September 5 - 12

It is Fashion Week yet again with the Spring 2014 shows starting this week at Lincoln Center and beyond. Just like my advice last season, it doesn't matter if you have invites to shows or not - just head up to the plaza in front of Lincoln Center, plunk yourself by the fountain and people-watch till kingdom come.
