I make it a policy not to just troll other blogs and regurgitate what others have done. But I will break my own rule when someone has posted something that I have to kick myself for not finding on my own. Today’s post comes courtesy of Object Lesson, a cool blog and one of the many fans of artLAB, an Etsy shop which grabbed my attention and sent me on an knee-jerk shopping binge. Thanks Object Lesson! (well, my closet thanks you but my budget thinks you’re the devil.)

Short and billowy bubble-icious skirts, harem pants (again), frenetic prints and classic black and white; Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is over. With designs that range from romantic (Venexiana and Georges Chakra) to architectonic, (Trias and Alexandre Herchcovitch) the spring 2010 shows give us plenty of mood and color options to work into our own wardrobes.  Like you, I’m always looking to translate a few elements from the runway into my personal style. Here’s a roundup of some of the looks that grabbed my attention this season:

My friend Rose is one of the goddesses that makes the Barneys NY warehouse sales happen. As most of you fashionistas and web surfing, nose-smudge-on-window-pane shoppers know, the NYC warehouse sale started on August 20th. I always say I’m going to go but it never seems to fall into place. HEY ROSIE, if you’re listening – here’s my shopping list for all that spare time you’ll have… I want at least one of each – and you should probably know, I have a budget of $23 American dollars.

I could do a blog entirely about all of the truly great artisans that abound in my home state of Connecticut. It brings me pleasure to have the chance to profile some who represent the type of innovative designers across a range of media that live and work here.  GG2G (www.gg2g.com) is a designing duo out of Milford that brings a re-use & recycle philosophy to their line of accessories which are made from recycled  billboard vinyl and vintage or designer fabrics. These “ReVinylized bags”  are chic, colorful, versatile and eco-conscious.  Gotta love it!
