Happy New Year's Eve babes! 

A few questions you might be asking tonight:

What are you wearing?
Who are you wearing?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Who are you doing?
What are you drinking?
When are you going home?
How are you getting home?

Doesn't matter unless you had really had fun tonight.

But in case you're wondering, I'll be wearing by Panda Rocks cardi tonight (as pictured above modeled by moi) from fave London knitwear trio SIBLING, over a vintage trapeze velvet mini dress, House of Holland for Pretty Polly suspender tights, vintage Mudd ankle boots and a bag I got at Urban Outfitters. 

Tonight's theme song? 
Blood Orange "Champagne Coast"

bisous for a new you,

NYFW Flashback: Ex-J.Crewee Marissa Webb Debuts New Line

Marissa Webb is a womenswear RTW designer that debuted her first solo collection this past September in NYC during New York Fashion Week. For the Spring/Summer 2013 season, Webb went for the current trend of sophisticated separates. 

Or in other words, clothing you can wear to the office (maybe), or duds you can wear when you go out with your chums, or when you have to go out to a snooty fashion event and you want to wear an outfit that screams cool and stylish but without trying to hard and looking like a douche. 

If you're a fan of J. Crew, then you're probably already familiar with Ms. Webb. The Korean-born, American raised designer left the preppy powerhouse this past summer to pursue her own clothing line, previously holding onto various titles such as Head of Womenswear and Accessories Design.

But all you really need to know is that her clothes are safe enough to wear in NYC but cool enough that you won't feel like a total drab.

Her line will be carried at the following joints, as expected: Barneys, Steven Alan and Les Internets.

Agnes B x Rough Trade: Shop The Collaboration

The partnership between French high-end high street agnès b. and ultimate British record shop Rough Trade began back in April 2011 for Record Store Day. Rough Trade headed down to Paris that year to celebrate the retail holiday with live music and special merchandise, like the ones you see above.

These items are part of a special limited edition range, that are sold exclusively at agnès b. stores in Japan and at Rough Trade shops in London. But for the rest of us who live in neither spots, you can also purchase the items online right now.

So, what are you waiting for?

Lady Gaga & Nick Knight Wish You a White and Weird Christmas

SHOWstudio's Nick Knight and Ruth Hogben teamed up with pop wunder Lady Gaga to create a special video message for the Christmas season. Titled "White Christmas", the video is nothing more than just a blurry lens capturing Lady Gaga gyrating in some shiny weird, McQueen-y looking garb.

Question: Is Lady Gaga still relevant? Maybe just in Asia?

Steve Madden Has Got to Have Faith. Paloma, That Is.

If you know of anything happening in the world of Brit Top 40, then the name Paloma Faith should ring a bell. The lady whose become known for her fab/slightly off beat style with a legit set of pipes on her persons has become the new face and muse for the Steve Madden Music brand.

To celebrate the new partnership, Steve Madden is pushing these four photos of the songstress wearing Steve Madden styles, obvi. Shot by Phil Walters of Onslot Creative at The Box in NYC, these photos definitely rep the marriage of modern, kooky and vintage -- much like Faith's own style and the collaboration between herself & Madden.

Check out more photos from the shoot down below:

Saint Laurent just released photos of their Spring/Summer Women's 2013 collection, featuring model Julia Nobis, and shot & styled by SLP's Creative Director, Hedi Slimane.

Still going strong with his trademark black-and-white motif, Hedi shoots Julia in what seems to be a lofty/garage spot, probably most likely somewhere in Downtown Los Angeles.

PENCEY x H.O.W.L. Art Basel Dinner Was Awesome Sauce

Last week, I was down in Miami for the fashion/celebrity/art world clusterfoick known as Art Basel Miami Beach. One of the shin digs I got to hit up was the private dinner for the PENCEY x H.O.W.L. collabo launch at the Wynwood Kitchen & Bar.

I've always been a fan of PENCEY, which you may know as being the really awesome contemporary women's brand that's been sported on the likes of Katy Perry, Leighton Meester, Alessandra Ambrosio, Rihanna and Beyonce. 

H.O.W.L. (short for Handle Only With Love) is the line from Jewelry designer Tini Courtney, and features some awesomely Boho accessories. 

The two camps came together to throw a yummy dinner (thanks to Chef Miguel Aguilar and the French Macarons courtesy of Macaron Magnifique) right in the heart of Miami's Wynwood district which, if you've never been before, is filled with tons and tons and tons of street art from both world renowned artists and local creatives.

Check out photos from the dinner below!
