You know how sometimes you have a crush on someone based on their work? You might’ve never met them, not even 100% sure what they look like, but every time you see an ad or a graphic or something that grabs you its by that person? That’s how I feel about Geoff Mcfetridge, who happens to have a show up now at Half Gallery.
Rather than go on and on about him (you can check out some of his work at the link above), I’ll paste some images of the work that’s on view through October 15. As of this writing, all but two pieces have been sold, and prices for what’s left are $4-5,000.
I don’t believe in spending hundreds of dollars on denim. Shoes, sure. Jeans, absolutely not. I was a fan of H&M jeans, but I’m over the ultra low rise thing. Done. Finished.
Today I found jeans at Old Navy that fit incredibly well, have a higher waist (thank god, we all look skinnier that way) and feel incredible to wear thanks to a touch of stretch. Here’s the best part – they’re $20 (in store only, not online). The regular price is $29.50.
They’re called the Flirt skinny, a picture is below, and you can see them online here.
Last Friday night I was in a rush trying to make it to my book party at Assouline. Hair – done! Outfit – chosen! Make up – not quite right. I knew I wanted a red lip, but I didn’t have the right red AND it was Fashion’s Night Out mayhem in midtown.
I ran into Saks thinking Nars would save me but the lady at the counter was incredibly unhelpful and handed me something orange. ORANGE? I said red, honey. So I went where I should have in the first place – Chanel.
Francisco Rosales, the counter manager, took one look at me, shoved me in the chair and applied Rougue Allure Laque #75 (Dragon). Thanks to him I actually showed up early to the event.
It’s a true, real, blue red that’s not for the shy. But with a lip like this you need no other makeup. Buy it here. Not cheap but super long lasting and worth every penny.
I found them. I’d been looking for them all year – ever since I saw a chic asian girl wearing skinny jeans rolled up to the ankle with a black blazer and black penny loafers last March or April. It was the perfect preppy look for the season and I became obsessed.
The problem was that nobody was doing the right toe box – and believe me, I ordered and returned close to ten pairs. I was *this close* to giving up (and was getting tons of sh-t from some friends who felt penny loafers were too masculine) when I walked into Jeffrey one day with friends who were visiting. And there, in the men’s department, was the Mark McNairy for G.H. Bass weejun.
Absolutely f-ing perfect. In a dark navy that reads black. Perfect toe box. Great stitching. Done.
