Of course, I'm bummed that I wont be able to actually sit under the tents (or for that matter, just be in and around NYC during Fashion Week) this time around, but I'll still keep an eye out for you. Some good friends are going to view the Vivienne Tam collection in my place, so I'll be sure to share their thoughts and pictures with you.
I plan to be at Bryant Park for the Spring 2010 collections, especially because, after 15 years, that will be the last time the park will play host to New York Fashion Week. Starting in 2010, Fashion Week's new home will be at Lincoln Center.
Designers are miffed about the move, given that it's so far from fashion row and the garment district, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and IMG (who runs the show) agree that the designers will have much more space at Lincoln Center.

Weird, right? I had to look over my shoulder a lil' bit and say a prayer just in case evil spirits were trying to communicate with me. But, then I thought about it a little more and concluded that since everyone and their mother has a blog, any astrologer who references a blog is probably going to touch on familiar territory.
Notwithstanding my cynicism, I think she's right. This blog has been up and running for years now and I still have yet to develop a logo. A year or so ago, during a particularly inspired 2 hours, I came up with the idea for--and created a mock-up of--my ideal banner. I even re-registered stylechile.com (which I had in 2001, but let it lapse) . . . But, I'm woefully tech unsavvy, and am surprisely lax about this whole logo/website thing and should just pay someone to do it, but am secretly liking the blank, unadorned canvas that is this site.
But, guess what? Thanks to the artistic talent of this woman, whose Soul Baby Slings are definitely going to be featured here, I've discovered a really cool way to spice up this space. It's quite easy even for the technologically challenged--like me.
So watch out world. This blog is about to look a little better . . . at least for a while ;) Let's see how long this lasts.
P.S.- It won't be a big change, and hopefully you might even notice it! Baby steps . . .

Starting with Lou Hoover, Herbert Hoover's wife, first ladies have been photographed for Vogue, but those photos have often appeared inside where they are well placed, not quite hidden, but not quite having the oomph of being featured out front.- Washington Post
P.P.S. - The story is written by Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley. I have a pic of Andre wearing a fabulous reversible fur coat--braving the cold--on inauguration day. One of my girlfriends took the pic and he was gracious enough to take a pic with her as well! Good to see that others don't chicken out at the sight of him. I don't think I'll post it though, because he's my homie (in my head) and it wasn't the best shot of him. I don't want the bad karma!

Her handiwork is most prominently featured on Rihanna, but this celebrity hairstylist also counts Michelle Williams, Keyshia Cole and America's Next Top Model winner, Saleisha, amongst her clientele.
StyleChile: How do you manage to stay fashionable?
P.S. - my thoughts and prayers are with Rihanna as she deals with the unfortunate pre-Grammy incident involving boyfriend, Chris Brown.
