Fast food, fast fashion, everything is rushed in today's world. For Moschino Fall 2014 Jeremy Scott decided to hop on this bandwagon also. Jeremy Scott put a spin on the McDonald's logo, the ubiquitous fast food chain now appears on high fashion clothing. Who would have thought? The controversy over this collection impressive: between being accused of mocking minimum wage employees and illegally stealing the McDonald's logo. However, I think this collection is genius, I can now look to Moschino for a light-hearted, fun approach to fashion thanks to Jeremy Scott.

These shoes are absolute perfection, I am tempted to wear them everyday with just about any outfit. They have the magic touch of giving an outfit that extra boost that is always necessary without any effort. Also, as you can tell from the photos, they hold up pretty well in this crazy weather. I felt like rebelling against the snow today and swapped my winter coat for light jacket, another item I am lusting over. This jacket was purchased from Buffalo Exchange yet has an American Apparel tag plastered right on it; one of my more successful thrifting trips in my opinion.

I have always viewed Mary-Kate and Ashley as two girls with great style who have been lucky enough, like every other celebrity, to start their own collection(s). Quite honestly, I never took much notice to The Row nor Elizabeth and James during fashion week. However, I was blown away by these two collections while clicking through Style.com in between homework breaks last week. Elizabeth and James featured wearable looks, and pieces alone that I started to drool over: long lined coats, turtleneck dresses, and pinstripes galore. The Row featured just as many drool-able looks with even more emphasis on silhouette as you can see above. By no means am I planning to wear that cashmere sweater and pant combo anytime soon but, wow, would that look fantastic in an editorial. I can confidently say that my perception of the Olsen sister's have changed, they have a real eye for not only style, but design. I have four words for them: you got it dude.

w e a r i n g : Ain't Laurent w/o Yves sweatshirt, Brandy Melville skirt, Urban Outfitters coat (similar), Dr. Marten shoes, Urban Outfitters hat
I am going to give Heidi a break on this one and say that I enjoy the Saint Laurent collections much over the good ol' YSL collections. However, I think we all miss the iconic YSL logo. Nonetheless I thought this shirt was quite humorous and I could not pass it up; if you cannot read the shirt thanks to my hair, it reads: Ain't Laurent without Yves. I went for one of my more "classic" looks in the winter consisting of a plaid skirt, my Dr. Marten shoes, my boyfriend coat, and a cool hat. And, of course, I cannot forget about my cozy fleece lined tights…where would I be without those…

w e a r i n g : Cheap Monday jeans / Forever 21 turtleneck and flannel, Asos Shelly London loafers / Casio watch
The snow has been ridiculous the past few weeks to say the least. Though it looks bone chilling freezing in these pictures from the massive amount of snow it was actually about 40 degrees.
Anybody from the West Coat stop reading right now: and that 40 degree weather felt like spring to me. To say I am envious of you Californians' is an understatement, the thought of 70-80 degree weather in winter has not left my mind. If Manhattan wasn't as great as it is then I can promise you that my tartan-butt would be in Cali the day after I graduate high school.
My outfit consists of, yet again, another turtleneck, this one is different though, it is a very thin sweater-like material. I also felt like accenting a lot in red today, don't ask me why. I added this tartan flannel around my waist and threw on my chunky red loafers. Following that I went and got my nails painted red. Don't assume this is permanent, no one could replace my beloved neutrals.

When I heard Nina Garcia say that "fashion is not art" on Project Runway I rewound the show a few seconds back (thank god for DVR) just to make sure that I heard right. With that, is fashion art? My stance on the question is that fashion is absolutely art, no doubt about it. The Merriam-Webster definition of art is "something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings". This definition is certainly applicable to clothing, and even more then clothing, fashion. Lets see, clothing is made with imagination and skill while fashion expresses important ideas or feelings. With Spring Couture 210 just wrapping up I figured it would be the perfect time to address this question. Between the picture of Adam and Eve on a Valentino gown (above) and Maison Martin Margiela using "unconventional" materials to create what should be haute couture, I think the answer is clear in this case. For Chanel on the other hand there may be some controversy, many people would not consider fanny-packs and knee-pads art.
What do you think, is fashion a form of wearable art?

w e a r i n g : Free People pants / Forever 21 sweater & turtleneck / Jeffery Campbell boots / Casio watch
A great pair of versatile pants is something I always struggle to find in the wintertime because I get tired of jeans too quickly. I fell into these pants at Free People the day after Christmas, I always find the best stuff on that day… These pants are my favorite color at the moment: navy. And they are striped, not the thick stripe that I think we are all tired of, but pinstriped. I paired them with a white turtleneck and my matching white Jeffrey Campbells. If there's one thing I'm going to miss from winter it will probably be turtlenecks, I hate to sound like a loser but they are so comfortable and, in my opinion, they look so polished and modern. But you can have your own opinion, no offense taken!
