Coast to Coast Couture
This week delivers a double whammy for style junkies. In LA, the Grammys provided their usual spectacle of cleavage (Rihanna) and craziness (Sasha Gradiva and her “gun dress“). And on the other coast, New York Fashion Week is in full swing.
Say what you will about bad wardrobe choices on the red carpet and too-skinny models on the runway. There’s plenty to criticize about the fashion industry if you take it too seriously. But I subscribe to the school that thinks fashion is fun, both to wear and to watch. Kate Spade said it best: “Playing dress up begins at age five and never truly ends.”
Some favorite looks from fashion week so far (all photos from mbfashionweek.com):
That Jenny Packham mini is fabulous! I had so much fun at her show when we went last year!
megan, the frugalista diaries

Those are great looks! Very fashionable!! Saw you over at Monday Mingle.
Love the Carolina Herrera! This week, I’m looking to break a black habit and shed some light on my wardrobe! Here’s my post:
That sounds fantastic! What a great opportunity. I hope you will be blogging about your experience at the conference.
Susan, last week — the day before fashion week started — I went to IFBCon and I have to thank you for the amazing experience, since I first found out about Independent Fashion Bloggers from the badge on your site! Every woman at the conference had such strong, original style. It was really refreshing and inspiring to see. Plus great panelists. Perhaps you will be able to make the trip to NY sometime for it and Fashion Week. If so, let me know … it would be wonderful to meet in person.
