all kinds of craziness

Sometimes fashion seems to short circuit...when the rest of the world up-ends why shouldn't fashion? I'll be interested in seeing the collections next week but on the streets I feel like there is a really edgy energy right now which is seen in the revival of a quasi-punk aesthetic and a really anything goes attitude. This girl fits right in with that with her 2-toned half shaved hair, old fur over a kimono, accentuated eyemakeup and (following in the footsteps Ms. Roitfeld) the pantless look...I guess that's a look for less!

Oh Sweet Jane

I'm deviating from my normal style posts to give a shout out to Jane's Closet. They have a website but now will be opening a pop-up shop at 60 N 6th Street in Williamsburg February 1st with a 15% off everything sale. They carry younger designers like Charlotte Ronson and Corey Lynn Calter as well as a wide range of accessories from bags by Deux Lux to unique jewelry by Jill Schwartz to fun winter wear by Wooden Ships. (They'll also have a Valentine's Day sale February 12-14.) It takes guts to open a small boutique in the current economy, so I encourage those of you living large off the L train to shop locally at Jane's Closet.

Maiden Fair

Okay, I'm not sure what her headpiece/hairband is exactly. But it reminds me of what I wore for my First Communion...except that had a veil as well. Maybe hers did originally as well but it got lost between the church and the nightclub. Then again, maybe not!

Q + A with Krystyna Printup

I first met Krystyna two years ago at a Radar Magazine party where I was taking photos for Style Defined. Not only do I love her style but she has insane energy. A rare breed, the native New Yorker, Krystyna's also like the super cool girl from school who is open and friendly with no patience for fakeness or pretentiousness. So I was not surprised to learn that her own website keeps it real as well. With the tagline You no longer need to know the right people, Krystyna's Printup List shares her insider knowledge with everyone else. And she was nice enough to do a Q + A for us as well! So check it out in the Musings. And note to Krystyna: I will def check out Fridays at Santos!
