Bidding Adieu to 2012
It’s been a massive year. We reelected a president, endured — for better and, unfortunately, worse — the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, watched the EU needle their way through total financial collapse. The list goes on. But tonight, friends, we dance! There’s no better way to celebrate the culmination of the last 365-day cycle than to put on your favorite party dress and hit the dance floor. So raise your glass, say a toast, and cut that proverbial rug… just make sure you’ve got comfortable shoes on.

Luck Be a Lady
By Jenny Bahn 
No matter how boyish and low-maintenance I like to think I am, sometimes it’s nice to dress like a proper lady. Lipstick, knee-length dresses, high heels, the works. Peplum skirts and tops are a flirty favorite of mine. A full skirt paired with a polite button-up is another way to dip your toes into uncharted girl territory. The trick is to never make it look too precious. If you’re feeling like a cupcake, throw on a harder shoe, like Valentino’s studded cheetah numbers or Acne’s (very comfortable, I might add) wedge sandals.

Reality. Not Reality Stars. By Lanvin. 

By Jauretsi

Lanvin just released their Fall/Winter 2012 campaign celebrating “Individuals”. It’s full of characters, real people, and compelling fragments of stream of consciousness. As Lanvin states, it’s “Reality. Not Reality Stars”. One of my favorite brands found in the eBay closet (see dresses or bags or shoes), Lanvin never disappoints with their creative. I’m feeling this trend of character studies. Steven Meisel photographs this campaign while House and Holme acts as Creative Direction. Well done, Lanvin! — Jauretsi
