Leopard is the New Neutral

There have been moments when my fashion dreams came to life! I have seen my favorite fashion muse Leandra Medine speak before but to see her speaking in such an intimate setting, blew me away! Kate Spade store, West Village, NYC, was one of these moments: the sight of Leopard Leopard Leopard – a KateSpadexManRepeller pop-up store event. Medine, founder of mighty media company, ManRepeller, joined the visionary behind Kate Spade, Chief Creative Officer Deborah Lloyd, in a conversation about their personal stories, their feelings about success … and of course, how they feel about wearing the fashion staple, leopard, which in Medine’s words is “the new neutral!” It was inspiring!

“I don’t have anything against jeans!”

My Dad in jeans

My Dad in jeans

In the half-century that I have known my Dad, I have never seen him wear jeans. Never. Until today. There he was, in a pair of jeans he bought at Marshall’s – and I couldn’t believe my eyes! When I asked him why he decided to try them now, he said, “I don’t have anything against jeans!” And yet, it was a first. He told me that they fit a bit too big in the waist … my fashion advice? I told him to put them in the dryer from time to time and let them shrink a bit. I went on to advise him that I have been doing that with my jeans for years. Too funny, really, to be giving my Dad advice about jeans. A fashion moment for sure. Dad, I’m buying it!

With a fresh new fall season upon you, it’s tempting to fill your wardrobe with inspired new clothes. And it is difficult to figure out, in that fleeting moment of shopping frenzy, what you really need versus what you may want. Sure, you think you have the discipline to enter a store and hold back on non-essential purchases. But buyer beware: there are shopping habits that can be dangerous, and leave you feeling emotionally and physically spent. Here, Stylecaster lays out 12 shopping habits that we need to break, right now. I find number 5 to be the worst of the bad shopping habits: You don’t play the wait-a-day game. If you find something you love but may not need, put it down for 24 hours. If it stays with you, consider getting it. You’re meant to be together. On the other hand, If you forget about it after a day, then forget-about-it! It’s not meant for you. I’m buying it … or not …
