“I Know What Women Want. They Want To Be Beautiful” – Valentino

Having not been too up to date on my posting recently, I want to take a second and reflect on what was one of my favorite shows from Paris Fashion Week – Valentino.

It was immaculately tailored perfection with the ideal use of color, leather and prints. It summarized the effortlessly chic nature of Fashion Week in Paris in such a understated manner that spoke true elegance.

“The Difference Between Style And Fashion Is Quality” – Giorgio Armani

Consider this little quote from Giorgio the start of me weighing in on the current street-style debate. The phenomenon of fashion bloggers and those photographed for their street style has gotten carried away on it’s own momentum; we live in a time where everybody assumes they can be a fashion blogger and matter to the fashion editorial world just like that, the same applies for street-style kids thinking they are models.

Gone are the days of pure fashion editorial, instead we are subjected to the realms of Instagram hash-tags such as #WIWT (what I wore today) #OOTD (outfit of the day) – are we now congratulating people on getting dressed for the day?

“You Must Welcome Change As The Rule But Not As Your Ruler” – Denis Waitley

So, for a while now – almost a month – I have been absent from my blog. I haven’t meant to be, but with the stress of starting a new job in the run up to Fashion Week and bending over backwards for that job, time just somewhat got away from me.

Anyway, this is my welcome back post! I will still write about Fashion, PR, New York and all things me, for anyone that might like to read them. Big Apple Dreaming, we’re back.
