These ‘Folk know Fashion!

So, my driver, you may know him as Greyhound, was kind enough to take me on a lovely drive from Baltimore down to Norfolk, Va, with only a brief stop in Richmond, Va.

Dare your outfit to adapt

So, I have been frantically formulating a ridiculous itinerary for next month to see as many NYFW runway shows in a 36 hr period.  But before I discuss that, I wanted to shot out the emerging designers of the DMV.  I am an avid supporter of the emerging designers and anything positive about Maryland/DC/Virginia.  So the fact that a...

Addicted to American Fashion Podcast

Ever been liberated by limitations and overwhelmed by variety? Would you have thought that the designer (Lindsay Degan) saying it was talking about knitting? I've honestly never listened to a podcast before...but American Fashion Podcast sucked me in, like hard.  For two weeks, every chance I had, I was listening.  I've always had a Vogue in my...
