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: Fashion Night Out

My dearest, darling readers.

As you know, I adore fashion.  Simply, utterly, overwhelmingly –  adore it.

In fact, I would go as far to say that dressing up and looking divine is one of life’s great pleasures. That is why I am over the moon, sweet friends, to announce that I have been asked to co-host a fabulous Fashion Night Out event, a grand and amazing evening of talented designers, sublime musical entertainment, and all the brightest and the best lights of New York City!  And all in the name of promoting the wonderful clothing and people of the city’s famous Garment District!

That’s right! We are going to have ourselves a ball, all in the name of keeping U.S. designers, American-made. Factories, suppliers, young talent – all of them need our support in making sure the Garment District keeps on keeping on in creating the highest quality clothing for gals like me to don, for events like this.

Take a look at the invite below and be amazed at the gathering of talent.

Am I nervous?

Yes.

Am I excited?

Yes.

Am I honored?

Truly.

I will be sure to keep you all in the loop on the star-studded, perfectly coiffed, fabulously dressed – days and night to come…

Olive Goil: Julia Holter

My, oh my, oh my, my dears!

Do you know how there are moments when you hear a song and the sound of it tears you in two?  Just shatters your little ‘ol heart? The first time I heard the sweet, sweet voice of Julia Holter I felt just that, a sharp splinter glass break in the my chest that moved me in a way I can’t explain.

I know – you think I’m exaggerating. But I am not, my darlings, I swear!

I admit, I may be a bit of a drama queen at times, but take a listen to Miss Holter and I dare you not to feel the same!

The lovely young Julia graduated from prestigious CalArts with a degree in composition (Yes! She is a smarty pants!). Her first album, Tragedy, was released in 2011 and her second album, Ekstasis, followed in 2012.  Both are shimmering, angelic masterworks of synthesizer and electronica and experimental musings and oh dear readers, again, I must say it again – that voice!

Holter sounds like she has just swooped down from above, all diamond bright and beautiful!

Listen my dears… and feel your heart break, in a good way…

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!
