DIY Painiting My Laminate Desk

desk before

Hello everyone!  This is a little off topic but I wanted to share with you my most recent DIY (do-it-yourself-project) project.  The reason I’m posting this is because 1) I’ve found my personal interest expanding (beyond fashion) 2) everyone has some old junky piece of furniture that although its still good and functional the style […]

From the site: The Fashion Show benefits the Artist in Residence program at St. Luke’s, which utilizes creative activities to help cancer patients manage emotional and physical difficulties brought on by their disease.

The program began in 2010 thanks to a grant from the Lance Armstrong LIVESTRONG foundation. St. Luke’s Cancer Center teamed up with ArtsQuest® and artist Karen Steen from the Banana Factory. Today the program reaches patients receiving chemotherapy and other infusion services at St. Luke’s Cancer Centers in Allentown, Bethlehem and Anderson Campuses. Art therapy is also being offered for those receiving inpatient oncology care at St. Luke’s University Hospital in Bethlehem.

If you have any questions about the 2012 Fashion Show or sponsorship opportunities, please contact:

Style Espionage

Every week..

LBT: Are you from New York?
BTB: I live here.
LBT: Are you originally from here [New York]? Most people aren’t.
BTB: Florida.
LBT: Do you have style icons? Dead or alive.  Anyone that you admire their style or their character maybe…
BTB: I’ve always liked, well maybe every girl likes the Carrie Bradshaw character.
LBT: Sure!  She does have an incredible wardrobe right?!  Do you have a favorite style movie? Not necessarily that it is about fashion but the costumes of the film.  I always get such interesting answers with this question.
BTB: My Fair Lady.  The hats and dresses and Audrey Hepburn.
LBT: Oh My Fair Lady! Excellent!  Yes!  Oh I have these fascinators in my store that you might just love.  They are hand made and they have these incredible flowers and feathers and they are very grand.  Since you like My Fair Lady you might like them too.  Where is your favorite place to shop in the city?
BTB: I don’t really have a favorite place.  I just go where there is a good deal.
LBT: So it doesn’t matter where ever the sale, is either at a department store or a boutique or…
BTB: No I usually do stay away from department stores.
LBT: Why is that?
BTB: Overwhelming and too busy.
LBT: Too much to choose from.

Thank you so much N for sharing your shopping and style preferences with me.  Those flowers are still gorgeous and I’m so glad I took your picture in front of them.  No, you are not slouching. :) Yes, those are fabulous sequins on her boots.~ LadyBowTie

High Fashion Paper Bag?

Fashion can sometimes be pretentious and ridiculous and over-the-top and that is why I love it!  Haha! And there are writers out there that LOVE to hone in on those times and “blow up their spot” in a very funny and snarky way.  This is such an article, enjoy!

Thanks to Jezebel (one of the funniest and most sarcastic website around) for this article and one of our readers for sending it to me.

Why Did Jil Sander Make A $290 Paper Bag?

Jenna SauersSo. Jil Sander is selling a brown paper bag. It is made of coated paper, with brown stitching on the sides. It differs from your average lunch sack in that it has a Jil Sander logo on one side — and it costs $290.

W effused about the bag’s $630 black leather cousin, writing:

The design does two very interesting things: It doesn’t venture far from the original, and it’s perfectly in sync with the fashion house’s minimalist roots. Forget recycling — this bag is a keeper.

Does Jil Sander sell a bag I can barf in, too?

Every time I read about a $500 pair of Rodarte socks, a $9,500 Fendi bicycle, a $53,500 Bottega Veneta suitcase, a $700 Margiela t-shirt, a $2,000 Louis Vuitton trashbag purse, I feel a familiar sense of disappointment. Why does fashion always end up giving fodder to the haters? These are the kinds of products that are born for scream-y New York Post headlines and incisive water-cooler conversations about the emperor’s new clothes.

It’s not enough that the fashion industry, being a kind of capitalist performance art dominated by women and gay men, is already written off by most people as silly and frivolous. Occasionally, fashion has to go out and actually confirm everyone’s worst assumptions by making a paper bag that costs $290. Where does this come from? Some kind of Freudian death drive? There is no artistry in a $290 paper bag — if it’s supposed to be, I don’t know, a post-post-modern joke on the nature of branding and luxury in an age of mass-produced material culture, it’s still not funny. These kinds of products are just so empty. Why fashion houses keep making them, when they know they will elicit nothing more than scorn (from even people like me who actually like fashion!), is beyond me.

Is This $290 Jil Sander Paper Bag The Most Overpriced Lunch Sack Ever? [Ecouterre]

The Skinny on LadyBowTie
