She Did it Again

Note to Victoria Beckham:
Your airport style is impeccable. When we see most celebrities showing up for their red-eye flights in leggings and oversized cardigans, you are like a breath of fresh air. I can't imagine those tailored pants are comfortable for a long flight, but you don't look like you mind. I am dying to know, do you change into a Juicy track suit as soon as you board the plane? I doubt it.

Note to Readers:
Are you loving Victoria's pants as much as I am? I love the crisp white high waist with the button detailing. If I had these pants I would want to wear them all the time, maybe that is why she is wearing them on a plane. She can't bear to take them off because all of her other pants pale in comparison? She is breaking one of my cardinal rules though-- sunglasses indoors. Some people never learn.

Elite Models/Pulse Mgmt Photo Shoot

(photo from my iphone)
Note to Readers:
Last weekend I was busy working on the styling of some test shoots for Elite Model Management New York and their partner Pulse Management. I don't have any of the final images yet, but the shoot is already garnering some significant buzz in the modeling industry. Check out what Wayne Sterling at wrote about some of the models at the shoot here. The Elite website also had a post on their official blog about the shoot here (scroll down a few posts).

Also, here is a video taken at the shoot from the Pulse Management website. It is just a video someone took with their camera, but I think it is always fun to see what goes on behind the scenes at a photo shoot. When I get the actual images from the shoot I will post them for you.

The photographer Scott Lowe was a delight to work with. Check out some of his work here. I like his style of photography, very honest and natural. Not a ton of makeup and hairstyling to hide behind.

It was a busy weekend, but I loved it!

Street Style

Note to Kelly Ripa:
This look is tres adorable on you! It is the perfect combination of casual yet sophisticated. I love that you didn't feel the need to wear a black top with the black and white skirt. The navy tank is a perfect addition to the look and keeps it from being too matchy-matchy.

Note to Readers:
This ensemble is exemplary in a few different categories:
1. Dressing for petite figures- This Dries Van Noten skirt has horizontal lines that make Kelly's gamine frame appear more curvy.
2. Dressing casually- For some dressing casually means wearing sweats and what ever shirt doesn't have a stain on it. Kelly's tank, skirt, and sandals combo shows that even when you are running errands, you can look effortlessly chic.
3. Dressing in hot weather- tanks, skirts, and sandals are all great ways to stay cool in the summer heat. I actually prefer to wear dresses and skirts when it is really hot. I think it is much more comfortable than wearing shorts, which are usually a tighter fit than most skirts, and don't allow your skin to breathe.
4. Dressing appropriately for one's age- I appreciate that Kelly isn't wearing an denim skirt with holes in it, and a Hello Kitty t-shirt, if you catch my drift. The length of the skirt is fitting for a woman Kelly's age, and she looks sexy while not trying to dress like a teen. Are you paying attention Mariah?

Photo Shoot

Note to Readers:
A few weeks ago I styled a photo shoot with one of my favorite photographers, Della Bass. She just sent me over some of the images, so I thought I would share a couple of them with you.

Note to Della, Bethany and David:
Nicely done. You three are always a delight to work with.

Reader Request

Note to Amber:

I received your email about finding "t shirts that are totally plain with a scoop neck and it has a little extra material around the scoop neck" and I think I can help. I am not sure how embellished you want the neckline, so I found a few options for you, hopefully one of them will solve your scoop-neck shirt conundrum. The shirt in the above photo is from Downeast Basics and can be found here. I also found another more colorful option from the same company, here.

If those are not what you are looking for, there is a DKNY shirt that you might like here. If you want more of a plain t-shirt you may like this James Perse option or possibly this Marc by Marc Jacobs shirt.

If none of those are what you are looking for, J. Crew usually has good shirt basics, as does American Apparel and I love the Hanes undershirts found at Target.

Hopefully that helped Amber, and thanks for reading.

Note to Readers:
If you have a question about your clothing, style, wardrobe, etc. don't be shy! Email me ( and I'd love to help. It's the least I can do for you reading Fashion Noted.

Cursive Music Video

Note to Readers:
A few months ago, I had the privilege to style a music video for the amazing band Cursive. This was a really fun project for me because they wanted all of the clothing to look like it was from a 1970s horror film. There was also a twist, they wanted to have the clothing be as authentic as possible and they needed about six wedding dresses. Never one to back down from a challenge, I worked on the project, and loved every second of it.

Note to Cursive:
You guys were really fun to work with, and were great sports as I pinned all of your clothing to fit. You even helped iron some of the wardrobe, which is above and beyond what is expected of rock stars. I love the song, and I love how the video turned out.

Note to Danny Drysdale (director) and Jeff Lasson (producer):
Thanks for giving me this awesome opportunity. If I am going to be hiking through Laurel Canyon while adjusting clothing on the talent, and making sure none of the wardrobe gets lost, I always want it to be with you two. Also, thanks for letting me make my music video debut (watch for me in the video).
