It’s officially the end of the world as we know it! According to Fashionista.com, Fashion’s Night Out will not be returning to NYC this year. No more free cupcakes, champagne, and gift bags on the eve of Fashion Week. I’m absolutely devastated seeing that this was favorite night of year.
If the awful news about Fashion’s Night Out wasn’t enough, according to Refinery29, some crazy televangelist claims that our vintage clothes may be possessed by demons. Personally, I think he just doesn’t want 90s grunge and goth fashions to come back, but they totally are.
In happier news that doesn’t make you feel like you just fell face first on the runway at Fashion Week, Derek Lam is doing a spring collaboration with Kohl’s and this is my favorite piece! See the entire collection on The Budget Babe.
Dolce & Gabbana showed their Fall 2013 collection inspired by an ancient church at Milan Fashion Week. Like everyone else, I’m absolutely obsessed and secretly hoping the medieval style gold crowns catch on. See all the looks on Style.com.
Here’s yet another reason to be psyched out of your mind for New York Fashion Week! Fashion icon and idol Betsey Johnson is hosting the ultimate contest giving fans on Facebook the chance to win a ticket to her runway show in September.

If you’re reading this Betsey, I sadly don’t have any of your vintage pieces, but I would really like a ticket to your NYFW show!
Over the summer on the east coast and all year round in L.A, socialites get their share of invites to awesome A-list pool parties. Since these fun events will most likely involve swimming, aside from swimsuit and beach cover-ups, not many clothing options are available to these events. Water may keep you from bringing your cell phone near the pool/party area, but it won’t deter the paparazzi whatsoever. Therefore, you need to be both pool and photo ready.
Retro-inspired swimwear is a great wear to show style both on land and under the water. Combine this look with a floppy hat and a retro hairstyle and you have a photo ready summer look. When you are going for a retro look, remember that less is more. Focus more on the “inspired” than the “retro” part of “retro-inspired.” You still want to look like you are living in 2011, just with a flare of the styles worn by the socialites of the past decades.
