Long time no see, readers. We’re still waiting on our new site, which is the reason for some of the radio silence of late – plus I’ve been traveling like a nutter! Here is one of my Paris Fashion week outfits from February earlier this year. I wore Vega Wang, a very talented Chinese designer from Beijing and on my head: gear from Onar studios. Le Louvre, no matter how familiar it seems always reveals new and exciting corridors and corners to shoot in. Can’t wait to be back this summer!

THPSHOPLaMinimalisteCollection2La Minimaliste Collection has launched! We shot this 2 weeks ago in NYC and opted for a more pared down, minimal approach – no studio lights, just natural light. I think this is our most wearable line-up yet! Barbell shapes revisited, straight – edged ‘bar’ earrings, & yes a new necklace! Easy, No Fuss, but really eye fetching. Head over to THPSHOP.co to see the rest!

This last weekend in NYC where yes, it started snowing. Don’t let these pictures fool you, it was very, very cold. That aside, I was obviously in the mood to literally transition into spring. It’s no secret anymore that I am in a full retro-funk-grade which entails wearing wide legged flares at any/all opportunities with heels (here I am wearing my go-to’s the ‘Nudist’ Stewart Weitzman heel). I have dubbed this the 70’s working woman uniform…major Mary-Tyler-Moore-Show vibes dontcha think?

First Look

Because New York is still defrosting, I thought it fitting to post one of my favorite coats from the upcoming THPSHOP.co Faux fur collection. The citrus color will reign supreme for 2015 – mark my words! Bright tangerines and mellow yellows were seen all over the FW15 runways in January/February. Originally when we were deciding on colors, we wanted something that was WOW but not garish. I think we accomplished this with the Burnt Orange (which as the name alludes to) flickers between a few different shades.

Over the Seine

Most likely my favorite outfit of the season – this amazing JH Zane ‘Fisherman’ dress with exaggerated sleeves and open back. This is actually a very ingenious one-piece with an attached fitted skirt that acts as a sort of anchor to the silhouette (indulge me with the fishing jargon!). Juhao, the creative director and designer is incredibly talented and I believe part of why London fashion is so exciting right now. We have our Rafs, our Alex’s, our Phoebe’s – young, grassroots, burgeoning talent is where it’s at.
