Closet Fix: February 2013   

Wednesday, February 27, 2013


Although New York Fashion Week was dedicated to Fall/Winter 2013 collections, I decided to dress like something that the Easter Bunny threw up, as I'm anxiously awaiting the return of warmer temps.
If you follow me on Instagram @ClosetFix or on Facebook, you already know that I recently purchased this skirt. But, instead of waiting for sunny skies and a seasonally appropriate day to don this little number, I, the genius that I am decided to take this baby for a spin in tundra like conditions.
Now granted, even though it was worn pre-blizzard on the first day of NYFW, I'm pretty sure as photographers snapped my picture for my Vogue Italia feature, they were either in awe of my audacity, stupidity, or huge cojones, because certainly only a big testicled fool would wear a floral print mini skirt in the dead of winter. 
Or, perhaps they simply wanted proof to take back to their colleagues regarding the mental patients on the loose at Lincoln Center. Either way, I'm really happy that they took notice, as I am beyond honored to be recognized by Vogue during one of Fashion's biggest weeks. 
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

When the faux fur hat and jacket make a simultaneous appearance, it's not hard to tell that the shit has hit the fan, not literally per se, but in an it's cold as balls outside kind of way.
During New York Fashion Week (NYFW)the desire to be cute and dainty quickly flew out the window as the temps were far from conducive to anyone other than the abominable snowman.
Just like that, what was once guaranteed to be a parade of the overexposed, underdressed fashionista, quickly became a matter of survival, in the wear layers or meet your maker type of way.  
So, from head to toe I piled it on, doing my best Yeti impersonation, all while protecting my lady parts from the unfriendly bite of the frost.

The transformative powers of the knee high boot is undeniable. Just hitting right below the knee, this chic cold weather option is fantastic with a dress or over a pair of jeans, like here and here. Knee high boots can be found in a wide array of styles, ranging from flats to wedge heels. The plethora of options are guaranteed to appeal to your personal style all while adding a sleek and polished edge to your look. This Closet staple perfectly compliments any outfit, thus providing many options to achieve a Repeat Fix. Below are two different ways I styled my knee high boots.

It's so funny and tragically ironic, but with all the events taking place during New York Fashion Week (NYFW), I always felt like I had nothing to wear despite a closet full of clothes, many of which are brand spanking new with tags to boot. 
Many a day I'd sooner throw my hands up and opt for nudity had it not been for that pesky desire to make a good impression, as opposed to traumatizing attendees with gratuitous displays of cottage cheese.
So as my less than perfect birthday suit was off the table, I had every intention of purchasing new outfits with a callous disregard for the good options that I already owned.   
Nevermind all the children starving to death and without any options let alone the ability to fill a frivolous self indulgent void, and here I am professing that I needed things that I already have.
So leave it to Mother Nature with all her irreverence for our superficial needs, to use an impromptu blizzard to bestow upon me some perspective. Forced to make it work with what I had, I was reminded that it's not what you wear it's how you wear it that matters.

I don't know if you've heard, but a blizzard slammed into the east coast and damn near put the kibosh on New York Fashion Week (NYFW)and anyone who dared to venture into the elements unprepared.
Not one to let some raging lunatic literally rain, or more approximately snow on my parade, so against better judgement I decided to wear my stiletto heeled bootie in spite of the obvious threat to my neck should it make contact with the ice covered pavement.  
After all, on this particular day, I conceded my skirt to Mother Nature on account of the biting temperatures. So, I wasn't about to let her take my spirit too, and shame me into flats or shoes with any type of grip.
I refused to sacrifice my style in order to play it safe and avert succumbing to the pull of gravity. However, I did have a plan, as if anything short of teleportation would've improved my situation, but it was a plan nonetheless, which judging from my intact tokus may have truly saved my arse.    
Check out the interview I did with +The Huffington Post below to find out the trick I used to stay upright on the ice during NYFW, and watch the Style and Beauty Editor Miss Julee's highlights from NYFW.

Dressing for New York Fashion Week (NYFW) where often times you're running straight from day to night events, isn't without its challenges, especially since we're smack dab in the throws of a deep freeze where Old Man Winter is no stranger to having his way with us.
 Clearly, under such circumstances, common sense would suggest that clothing and plenty of it is necessary to avert Old Man Winter's unwanted advances. But, the prospect of going to a party in God forbid a sweater or leggings, is enough for me to throw caution to the wind and leave my house looking like a hooker. 
So, just like Trixie on the tracks, sans pants or proper footwear I pounded the pavement and braved the cold as I headed to the first event to commence my NYFW, the Independent Fashion Blogger's Conference (IFBCON). 
It was a great time where I listened to awesome speakers, learned some things, caught up with old friends, made new ones, and rounded it all out with a few cocktails to warm up my undressed ass before I hit the mean streets and headed home. Enjoy your day. Have a great weekend!

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is in full swing and already Mother Nature and her coconspirator Old Man Winter, AKA partner in crime can add attempted murder to their infinite list of crimes against humanity. 
Those two showed nothing short of callous disregard for not only my life but the lives of all those other ridiculous chicks who knowingly wore five inch stiletto heels on streets covered with ice and piles of snow.
Speaking on behalf of myself as I can't attest to the emotional well being of those other broads, I wore the heels not because I harbored some type of death wish, but rather I simply wanted to look half way decent during fashion's big day.
So, as I gingerly and ever so awkwardly made my way down the booby trap that Mother Nature laid out for me, trying desperately to preserve the life that I've spent years curating, I longed for dare I say sensible shoes.  
Anything with some grip, perhaps something flat would've sufficed as it would've at least given me a fighting chance against Mother Nature's attempts to off me. Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

New York Fashion Week is a day away and although I couldn't be more excited I'm dreading the wrath of Mother Nature who has an uncanny ability to show up at the most inopportune times, rearranging hair or major land masses at will.
Normally, I wouldn't really care since I'm so accustomed to her deviant, ratchet ways, which has left many a curls straight, and in my case a one way ticket to puffville. 
I'm used to Mother Nature's uninvited ass always crashing the party, but since I'll probably be wearing clothing far too inappropriate for the season let alone a major natural disaster, I can only imagine what will become of me should she pop in. 
Certainly I can and should bundle up for my own good, but when it comes to fashion I've never been accused of being practical and Fashion Week is no time to start exercising good judgement.
 So, I will proceed without caution and pray Mother Nature and her sidekick Old Man Winter will have mercy. Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3 *FYI Follow me on Instagram @ClosetFix for all the latest from New York Fashion Week

It's clear that self appointed fashion Gods, must be comprised of really evil bitches, as only a person with no conscience would recommend clothes for women that require the removal of a rib to fit. 
Only a person with questionable moral judgement would recommend shoes that require the removal of the beloved pinky toe to fit comfortably, all while knowing such procedures aren't covered by most health plans.  
Believe me, I've checked to no avail hoping to have my Cinderella moment with the latest stiletto sky high, fuck me pumps, certified by those Godless creatures as the next it shoe.    
Shockingly, this season that coveted seal of approval have been bestowed upon black and white, which are both flattering on most of us, and not just those enigmas I like to refer to as models. 
Nevertheless, I take such recommendations with a grain of salt as in my world, black and white has always been in, and as far as I know color isn't going anywhere. So, I wear what I want, as should you. Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

The leg baring mini skirt can do wonders for your wardrobe. Incorporating this shorter hemline into your Closet may be a bit intimidating. However, to offset or downplay the inherent sexiness of this Closet staple, opt for pairings that include more subdued pieces as seen here and here. Ranging in a wide array of textures, colors, and even lengths, the mini skirt which can be worn year round is a fun and flirty option that is sure to provide endless opportunities for a Repeat Fix. Below are two different ways I styled my mini skirt.
