On the other extreme are bloggers with an inflated sense of worth. In February, Macala Wright, a digital marketing consultant in Los Angeles, said she invited several bloggers to appear on a panel at Magic, a fashion trade show in Las Vegas. She had a modest travel allowance from the sponsor, but one blogger represented by an agency “wanted a first-class flight, hotel, five grand a day for three days — and an extra day to recover from the flight,” she said. Ms. Wright went with someone else and is still shocked by the sense of entitlement. “Just because you have 15,000 followers on Twitter,” she said, “doesn’t equate to Anne Hathaway showing up.”

When I write brown I'm referring to skin complexion and fortunately I'm part of that "brown" club if you will. It's recently since I really started to embrace color in my wardrobe. It's been a fun adjustment with the oranges, yellows and greens but I think I need to definitely get some blue in my life. I think a color that compliments a range of skin tones is one to invest in.
Quickly after Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week show ended, the temperatures dropped reminding us that Fall is around the corner. In Februray I had a quick with Sally Singers and other editors. However in usually Sally Singer style one would think a simple question would provoke a simple answer, not for Sally. Her answer for, What you like the most during New York Fashion Week, was intellecutally inspiring that it needed it's own post.
"What I like the most about fashion week is just seeing new things and having your eye adjust. It's not just having your eye adjust it's often things you're thinking about are confirmed. So I've been in this lace jag in my life, I've been wearing every vintage black lace dress I have and there's lace everywhere for winter. So you both see that your visual imagination is on track with the way people you respect visual imagination is going and then you also get to see stuff that wasn't in your imagination at all and that sort of sends you further."
What if your visual imagination is not on track?
"I'm sort of stubborn so my visual imagination keeps going where it's going. But it's really nice to be surprise, it's really nice to have your eye shifted and jolted to something new. It's always is inevitable because even I'm thinking winter lace and wearing winter lace I found at flea markets, it's one thing to see it in my weird head. It's other thing to see Marc Jacobs, Rodarte and everyone else do it and really do something with it. It makes it all the more interesting and more desirable for having seen it. I think it's really great to be surprised we don't always look for NY for that jolt it's often in Paris when you're starting to edit and something happens and your like, oh really it's all about that."
Lucky Magazine invited some of us fashion bloggers for a fabulous shopping event at Lord & Taylor. Suze Yalof Schwartz former Glamour Magazine Fashion Editor is now Lord & Taylor's Fashion Editor at Large was on hand offering styling tips and shopping suggestions for the new Fall assortment. Her tips for Fall while shopping at Lord & Taylor was to go for anything with Shine, which could be sequins, metallic, gold or silver accents. Color Blocking, who doesn't love to color block? Dresses, which are the easiest way to throw something on and still look effortless. Shoes, Suze said that you can definitely find something Christian Louboutin-ish, I definitely chuckled at that. L&T does have a great variety of styles that it was hard to go through all of them in the short of amount of time I had there.
After the dominating colors that was a huge hit with color-blocking now for Spring the blocking is still the same however the colors are much softer. If you loved color blocking you can still carry on your blocking skills but throw in some pastels instead. It's a fresh and soft take on a trend the consumers and fashion fans love so much.
Show: Lia Sophia Jewelry Collection
Location: Empire Hotel
Solange Knowles who's been making her round at Fashion Week, has been wearing Lia Sophia jewelry so of course I had to check out their collection. Truth: I've grown to love Solange Knowles style. Anyway, this was the only jewelry presentation I had the whole week and I surely wasn't disappointed. I'm always giddy with excitement with jewelry that's not chunky but still subtle to be a statement piece. This collection definitely had loads of that.

Remember Nicki Minaj’s seriously attention-grabbing outfit at Fashion Week’s Carolina Herrera show? Well, apparently, her rainbow pom-pom concoction was ripped off from a 21-year-old designer.
Jessica Rogers of SomeDayNewYorker said:
“When I saw the photos [of Minaj at Carolina Herrera] I was in tears. I’ve worked very hard to make my dream of being a fashion designer come true. I have built contacts with Teen Vogue, Gaga, Katy Perry, and Marina and the Diamonds has worn my garments. [Now,] I feel like everything has crumbled down.” [Fashionista]

Show: Milly Spring 2012 Runway Show
Performance: As the last show of New York Fashion Week this definitely ended on a sweet note. Prints were the name of the game at Milly - pixelated, graphic prints in bold colors.
The collection was heavily influenced by the 70's the wide leg pants, scarves wrapped around the necks (my mom used to do that back in the 70's) and fulls skirts.

I don't know if designers are trying to make me dizzy or lose my mind at the same time, any way geometric prints are hitting the runways in New York in major ways. Head to toe smorgasbord of lines, triangles, polygons and zig zaging in and out. There's nothing boring about this trend, just make sure you avert your eyes.
Show: Callua Lillibelle
Pieces To Covet: Neon pink twist dress, polka dot tuxedo shirt and yellow jacquard blazer
Performance: It's all about color and mix matching prints, polka dots and stripes. The Callula Lillibelle woman is sophisticated and this collection hasn't lost that. The injection of color and lace details made it more playful than seasons past.
