Since June 2020, there has been confusion about whether or not the New York Fashion Week will happen this year...
Extra guac and a ring, please.
Simply put, it's infuriating.

I had a ton of phases, from ridiculous glitter eyebrows to black lipstick (both of which I still rock on occasion). But there was no phase I went through longer or harder than the ice blue eyeliner phase.
Unfortunately, a wardrobe of runway pieces is not a reality for most of us. Instead we use the fabulous designer looks as inspiration to piece together our own style and wardrobe.
As fashion fans, we all eagerly await the newest collections each season, oohing and ahhing over the looks we see on the runways. However, as college students, our budgets usually keep those runway looks out of reach. But with a little digging, you can create similar ensembles without emptying out your bank account. First up is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 collection.
When I was 13, I was not a style icon. I favoured t-shirts with Disney characters and jeans with words on the back in rhinestones (shudder), so it's natural that I am jealous of Elle Fanning, who is a whole eight years younger than me and wearing Marc Jacobs.
Last time I did a purse inventory (it has to be done when you've got a collection like mine), I realized something: all of my purses are super-sized. You won't find any mini's hanging around in my closet! I'm 5'8, so I can rock larger purses and since I'm a student, I'm always looking for purses that fit at least a textbook and a notebook. However, this can be a problem when I'm looking for a lighter purse for a day of shopping or a night of margaritas at the local club.
At first, I couldn't decide if I was liking anything that was popping out from behind the curtain. It looked like MC Hammer and Lucille Ball barfed onto some fabric, smeared the regurgitated styles all over models with paint on their faces and let it go on a long strip of runway. The chic, bold colors and '40s-inspired ideas came together awkwardly and I was pursing my lips like Ms. Wintour.
Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and if it weren't for the fact that London starts up just as it ends, I'd be spiraling into a deep pit of fashion depression, downing Chunky Monkey as I flipped through pictures of my favorite collections for the 47th time.

One of the hardest parts of going back to school is how quickly my work is interrupted by New York Fashion Week. I know I should crack a textbook, get started on an assignment or two, but it's nearly impossible to focus with pictures from an endless number of talented designer collections. Add in Style.com's iPhone app and I'm even having trouble staying focused in class.
As we speak, the world's biggest designers are putting the final touches on their ferosh spring 2011 looks, Rachel Zoe is going bananas over the Oscar looks she'll inevitably find at the shows, Lindsay Lohan is waiting with baited breath to see if she'll get any front row seats this year (I'm putting my money on no), and Anna Wintour is scouling from behind a pair of oversized sunglasses.
