David LaChapelle is an American photographer known for his references to art history with a modern spin. Although he is well-known in the commercial world and has taken some of the most iconic celebrity photos, as of 2006 he stepped away from the commercial world and began the journey back to his fine art roots. Some of his most popular pieces feature Amanda Lepore, a regular at M&J Trimming!
This Spring New York Fashion Week has been a complete whirlwind, and we’re definitely a little sad that it’s come to a close. But fret not! We’ve scoured the runways for trends that we can’t wait to see this coming spring so you can start your seasonal shopping list early!
Keep it Cropped – Cropped pants and tops have been big for a few seasons now, and they’re not going anywhere! Next year you can look forward to more subtle midriff and ankle action. Menswear – Let’s hear it for the boys this coming spring with menswear-inspired looks.
Picnic Party – Fed up with flannel and plaid? Try gingham on for size! This friendly pattern has been all over the runways, and provides a cheerful contrast to the darker plaid we’re bound to see this fall and winter.
Fashion Week is drawing to a close. Thank goodness we have all of these beautiful clothes and accessories to look forward to this coming spring! The looks at Donna Karan New York were eclectic and urban-inspired. An ode to the great city of New York, these looks wouldn’t look out of place on a quirky Manhattanite.
Tory Burch has a relaxed and global vibe this season. Mixing refined style with raw edges makes this a perfect for a bohemian-at-heart who happens to be stuck in a less than free-spirited setting. Plus: tropical toile. Need we say more?At Libertine we got a look at an array of eclectic embellishments that make any outfit party-ready.
Beautiful clothes, stunning models, outrageous sets; what’s not to love about Fashion Week in NYC? Check out some of our favorites from these past few days and let us know which ones YOU love! Desigual is known for being bold and bright, so it’s no surprise that we saw prints on prints on prints with a surplus of tropical florals at their show.
When Fashion Week rolls into town, it isn’t only the runways you should be looking to for inspiration. Trade the catwalk for the sidewalk, and check out some of our favorite street style looks so far.
We saw a surprising amount of sportswear in the past few days. I sports bra here, some trainers there.
This fall we’re falling back into the swinging 60s with short a-line dresses, knee-high boots, and bold graphic prints. Fashion always has a way of reverting on itself, and reinventing the old in a new way. This coming season we’ll be seeing classic mod styles with “modern” additions. Think more metallics, sparkling embellishments, and a diverse color palettes.
We love the bright mustard of this Carven two-piece ensemble. And when it comes to boots, it’s go tall or go home.
September 4th not only marks the beginning of NYFW, it also happens to be, diva-extraordinaire, Beyonce’s birthday! As a salute to Queen Bey we are taking a look at some of our favorite outfits from her concerts. She happens to love Swarovski and lace almost as much as we do!

The days are getting shorter, and the nights chillier. Soon we will have to unearth those fall pieces that lay dormant in our closets, and replace them with the crop tops and neons of summer. But not quite yet. There are a few ways to keep wearing your summer favorites past their “wear-by” date.
Keep it layered. Fall is all about layering! Add a jacket to that romper, a scarf to that tank top, and a cardigan to that sundress. Once you’ve added one layer, add another! Take a tip from the Olsen twins and pile it on!
Tights and dresses are a winning combo. Keep your legs warm, while still rocking your sundresses by pairing it with tights!
Bring on the boots. The easiest way to make any look more cold-weather appropriate is to add a pair of boots! Stow those sandals and think of all of the money you’ll be saving on pedicures.
Add interest with heavier materials. Remember that layering tip? When you’re layering, pick fabrics that contrast with the ones you wear in the summer. Add leather jacket to a light cotton dress to instantly transform it into a look that’s darker, edgier and perfect for fall.
2014 was the year of Radiant Orchid, a cool toned medium-pink that captured the fashion, decor and beauty world by storm; but today we want to give a nod to one of Radiant Orchid’s close cousins: fuchsia. Fuchsia is a bright reddish-purple that takes its name from the equally beautiful fuchsia flower. This color would look beautiful in any season because it’s vibrant enough for summer, but rich enough for winter.
A fuchsia dress is one way to liven up a room! It’s as dramatic as red, but a little more modern and playful.
And don’t forget about home decor! Adding fuchsia to your room is a fantastic way to make any room more lively!
