I love these shorts. They remind me of old school ChloƩ.

I think Anthony is the only person (besides Tim) that I feel comfortable taking my picture with. The irony of this statement is so obvious it's not even worth mentioning. It's just nice when somebody gets you. And I jumped at the chance at having my hair styled by the man that did the hair for Karli Kloss for the cover of Vogue Italia. My request... make it wet!

As we move forward, get better, grow stronger, and more confident, it's nice to be able to look back on your blog and remember a day like this when you were finally able to trust another person and then put your sweatshirt on backwards. Whoops.

Shiny black and see-through patent are definitely two things I can get behind. We've been working so hard on the label - everything is in production. I forget to treat myself every once in awhile.

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to be wined and dined by the sweet girls at Lyst, Satine Boutique, and up and coming designer Jen Kao at the Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood. It was also nice to have an excuse to hang out with two of my favorite people Geri and Jayne. A great night - Jen even gave me a necklace she designed and painted right off her neck.

To celebrate this wonderful night, Lyst and I are giving away a $300 gift certificate to Satine Boutique!! (nbd)

The Fashion Club AW12

Where to start? Last November I took a trip to Shanghai to do some research on a future project. It was a learning experience, to say the least. What I learned from that trip I took with me as I worked long days and nights with my design partner, Heidi (whose previous design background includes Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane), to produce a 7-10 piece capsule collection. And to form what is now our very first label, The Fashion Club

This label is truly a labor of love. The zippers are RiRi, the cashmere is Loro Piana, and the wool... well... let's talk about the wool, shall we? Luxurious mohair and boiled wool previously next to impossible to find in the United States. But since everything is made in the US, it's been a such pleasure to contribute to the demand for more quality fabrics.

At the heart of it, we wanted to make clothes for our friends. To cut through the noise and produce a collection that really got what the modern girl is. A MA-1 bomber in ivory mohair, a red cashmere crop top, the perfect pair of suit-quality wool peplum pants... It's high fashion ideas deciphered and translated for the streets.

I hope you guys enjoy. And stay tuned next month for e-shop details. Because there's way more than meets the eye. ;)

Alexander Wang mesh tee

Great top. You have to see and feel the material in person to get what I mean. A perfect combination of sexy and sporty.
