kind of … ok pretty obsessed with this GQ for GAP collaboration featuring the best new menswear designers in America 2012. The Fall 2012 trends for womenswear include a lot odes to masculinity so with that inspiration in mind-and my current love for black and white minimalism-I put this look together featuring Ian Velardi’s Triangle Print shirt ($60), with a cool leather jacket, Uniqlo jeans, some ultra feminine high heels from ASOS, plus a pair of Warby Parker glasses for this cool and confident look.
The shirt that I’m wearing is a men’s xtra-small, it fits quite nicely in the shoulders and neck but the arms are a bit long. It’s super comfortable and is pretty sexy with a nice pencil skirt too.
This GQ for GAP collection has a lot of super cool items, I highly recommend both men and women check out. They’re a couple of items in there that are unisex enough that a girl with the right attitude can rock. The ampersand sweat shirt and pom pom beanie from Saturdays along with my other purchase BLK DENIM’s Liberté tee are two good options.
Intermix opened a store in Philadelphia this past week, I walked in and fell in love with these two amazing pair of jeans. These jeans combine some of Fall’s biggest trends, high contrast black & white, patterns and on the jeans end tuxedo detailing. Love!

Two of my favorite Fall trends are high contrast black and white ensembles and loose menswear-inspired trousers; it is after all the season of the pant! This BGBC black pair have a super comfortable almost pajama-like feel, but they’re perfect for looking effortlessly put together. While neons reigned in the height of summer here they work as accents instead of being the main event.

Established in 2008 by OverKill Studio, “Paint it Now” makes its Philadelphia debut in May of 2012 at the long-standing arts hub, Space 1026. Fusing individual exhibition and collaboration, “Paint it Now” invites participating artists to paint solely in opaque black paint directly on the white wall surfaces of the gallery over the course of a week. The outcome is a visually graphic, completely unified installation which surrounds the viewer with an immense narrative of imagery.
