Olive Loves: FNO Outfits

Okay folks, tomorrow is the big, big day!

I have a few more options for outfits to run by you, all culled from some of the fabulous designers who will be participating alongside me at the FNO event.  I need all my friends out there to help me decide what I should be sporting as host!

Shall it be the “Kate” blouse from Spoon, perhaps? In midnight black with the laser cut-out detailing? Ooh, so slinky and simple and luxe! Maybe I should match this elegant blouse with a classic pair of gold and pearl earrings from BB Jewels?

Top it off with a vibrant red python clutch from Primary NY? Or what about Primary NY’s “Kelly” dress in coral? Maybe to start the evening, then a costume change?

Oh my, it’s very overwhelming folks, to have this much gorgeousness to choose from.

As you might have noticed – yes, yes, yes! I am getting so very, very excited to play dress up and cavort about high in the sky with the beautiful people of the Big Apple.

Stay tuned for more…

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 Loves: Prism of Threads

Collage art, fashion, film, psychedelic visions and more, the blog and Etsy store of Prism of Threads simply blows my mind. That’s right. Mind blown!

You all know that I am a vintage fashion fanatic, and POT has a massive hand-curated collection of the most sublime pieces from the last 50 years of fabulous fashion style.That and the blog, oh the blog! Beautiful collections of exquisite art from other eras and our own. There is photography here and beautiful fashion spreads and illustration and gorgeous animations, and oh I could go on and on. But dears readers, go take a look for yourselves…

Their Etsy store has a selection of handmade pieces, recycled wonders which modernize the past and bring it full throttle into the future. Led by one of the finest scavengers of great vintage and thrift finds, a mysterious young lady artist in Los Angeles, Prism of Threads is a showcase of fine art, great clothes and an aesthetic marks by vivid color, explosive patterns and exploratory individuality.

Hooray!

Isn’t it wonderful, my dears, that the world wide web has allowed for such wonderful lost treasures to be found?
