Live Olive: Ready to Report FNO

Oh what to wear, what to wear? I am bustling about today, getting a fire-engine red mani-pedi, putting my hair up in smooth and elegant bun and standing in front of my shoe closet, pondering the life’s great question; which pair to show off this evening?

Because my dears, this is a very special evening. I am all a flutter inside with butterflies, as it is only a few mere hours before I host my very first ever, (and hopefully not last!) Fashion Night Out event!

So, should I don my sparkly Jerome Rousseau’s? My feathery Chrissie Morris’? And don’t even get me started on what to wear from there. Each and every one of the designers who will be by my side tonight are incredible in their own right.

Maybe I should bring an outfit from each and make a quick costume changes every 10 minutes?

These are the dilemmas a gal like me has!  But really and truly, I think I’m going to enter with one outfit and exit with another, just to be amazing – twice!

But don’t think for a minute I’ve gotten too wrapped up in myself not to remember the most important thing about tonight and that is to help the fine folks of the Garment Center keep designer duds made right here in the Big Apple!

But also, I DO have to look divine…I will be sure to keep you all abreast of the fabulousness occurring this evening.

Don’t forget to follow me, as I’ll be tweeting away!

Olive Loves: FNO Designer Selects

The big day is drawing near my dears and I am all in tizzy trying to decide what a gal should wear to this fabulous event. As you know, I am playing host to a very special Fashion Night Out evening and all eyes, ( well, most eyes, anyway…or at least a few eyes), will be on me.

So what’s a girl to wear?

Well, here’s the thing. I have the distinct pleasure of sharing hosting duties alongside some supremely talented designers, all of whom make the most lovely clothes and accessories, an array of items that would be absolute perfection to showcase at the event.

So what do you think readers? What shall is be?

A stunning dress from Dana Maxx, it’s red hot, racy shade offset but the sweetest white lace collar? Perhaps I could match that elegant ensemble with a stunning black and white lizard skin clutch from Michelle Vale?

Or should I go streetwear and edgy and stand out from the crowds, with a sassy pair of Ashley Arrow leggings from Brit NYC under a Boy Meets Girl Expedition Utility Dress?

Decisions, decisions, decisions….

Stay tuned, my dears, for more options. I’m going to need your help!

Olive Goil: Nanette Lepore

“The fashion district is facing extinction, and small factories are being lost to developers and without the Garment District, young designers cannot get their start in New York City.”

Listen up readers, that is the forceful voice of today’s Olive Goil, the designer Nanette Lepore. Miss L. is a gal that can make a dress that takes your breath away, craft a pair of dazzling high heels and in the process, stand up for the rights of the hard-working folks who make the America fashion industry move and shake.

Miss Lepore is one of the wonderful spokeswomen of “Save the Garment Center”, a trade association “devoted to promoting New York’s Garment District, and the fashion companies or brands who use it.”

It is also one of the main focuses of this year’s Fashion Night Out, a very special series of fashion hooplas, where I will be attending (and hosting my dears!) a series of wonderful events.

All I have to say, is hooray, hoorah and huzzah – for beautifully crafted, precisely made, totally gorgeous clothing, hailing from the U.S. of A!

Oh, and how could I forget, today’s Goil, the lovely Miss Lepore, is also the creator of some of my most very favorite fun, flirty and feminine fashions. I just took a look at her fall line, and my darlings… I have died and gone to clotheshorse heaven!!

 

Olive Loves: Goldnbones

There are leggings my dears, and then – there are Goldnbones leggings.

The psychedelic creation of artist OwlEyes, these beauties are beyond mere tights/coverings/pants. They are works of weird and wild art, fashion featuring a collage of custom images that range from wide eyes to Shinto deities to Russian sorcery.

Yes. You heard me right my darlings – sorcery and Shinto.

Goldnbones are like nothing you’ve seen before, so grab a pair fast and see what adventures await. Cosmic elegance! Runway religions! Put on those Goldnbones and strut your stuff – let that freak flag fly!

These are wonderfully strange and surreal, my sweet readers – dreams and visions translated into micropoly and spandex, hip hugging goodness!
