NYC, Part 2: FUR is FashiON!

So, NYC 2… The “Fashion” Part of my trip: it was ALL ABOUT FUR!!!

Yes, PETA, there is a Santa Clause, and SHE is wearing her FUR!!! Fur is in FULL FORCE this winter, and it makes you think: WHAT recession?? This is the great thing about NYC- even if these New York Women are/were BROKE  (probably not true), or have lost all their money to Madoff (probably half-true), they are still leaving their townhouse/apt/high-rise/mansion in STYLE.

Again, I DON’T WANT TO HEAR: “oh, poor animals, oh sad, blah, blah, blah”. THIS IS NOT THAT SITE! IF PEOPLE OF COLOR CAN STILL USE THE “ANCESTOR-RACE-SLAVE CARD”, THEN PEOPLE CAN STILL USE THE “ANCESTOR-FUR-WARMTH CARD”.  AM I RIGHT????

IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND YOU ARE PRO-PETA, THEN EXIT THIS PAGE!

THE FOLLOWING PICS YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE ARE OF PURE FUR PERFECTION! ( there were so many, I had to edit to my Top 5). ENJOY!

2 friends, just walking the streets of Midtown, a Brown fur on the left, and a White fur on the right….. “another cold day to meet up  for coffee and wear our furs.”

A-Mazing!  A Fur Poncho??? Upper East Side on Madison?! YES PLEASE! ( She was Fabulous, I must say…)

Friends in SoHo, another Monday shopping day…. a Blonde in a White Fur-Trimmed Coat? H.O.T….. and her friend wearing a black fur vest? BFF’S!

Will you look at this one!?! 3/4 length dyed fur coat with a BELT and HOOD! TALK ABOUT EXCESS!?! This is SEXY-YES! Plush, Gorgeous, Full… amazing…

And last, but not least, this lil fur vest, thrown over a simple v-neck, on a cute girl from Chicago…. She’s tan, blonde, got the big “boyfriend watch” on one wrist, and the stacked bangles on the other… Bright red nails to pop…. Loved her 🙂

LA’s LAST SUMMER WEEKEND 2010

Even though it’s October, and it is still hot as hell, Summer is officially over Los Angeles! We had some great times, and great pool parties! I was fortunate to enjoy a last summer Sunday at one of my favorite pools: Skybar @ The Mondrian.

This place will always be HOT. Hot music, hot crowd, lot’s of flesh. Basically, an upscale LA version of Vegas. So of course, my camera phone gets trigger happy, and “material” just seems to come to me. Below are some high’s and low’s of LA’s Last Summer Weekend. Enjoy!

HOT HOT HOT! This was the first thing I saw when I entered the pool area. First, I love a girl in a bikini and heels, poolside, hotel…. its picture perfect. Now of course it’s NOT ALWAYS practical, blah blah…. obviously not for the local Y or community pool, especially with kids. But in an adult atmosphere: ladies, this is great! Think about it- you’re in barely anything anyway, why not make your butt look tighter and legs look longer, right? The fact that these heels are BLACK and with STUDS and SPIKES: Very LA, Very Mondrian. LOVED this girl.

Then I saw this girl…. (sigh). This is tricky. She is wearing a black bikini, heels, big glasses… and then, a FUR HOODIE VEST-Thing. Now, I’m ALLL about fashion, pushing the envelope, standing out, etc. However, it IS HOT outside, and SUMMER. I’m all for fur (take that PETA) but it IS TOO MUCH. Yeah, she got attention, and looked good, but wrong environment. If it was cooler, fall, and poolside: SURE. If she was Rihanna? GREAT! On Valentino’s yacht in South of France? HOT!  But no, just a cute girl who went overboard. Nice try, but no 😦

Sarongs on men. I’m sure you’re all gonna think I hate, but I LIKE. Seeing as my family lives in Hawaii, and have been going there forever, Sarongs are a common thing to wear. Throw on over a swimsuit, and walk around. Done. Plus, this guy is in great shape, and looks like Ricky Martin: he could wear anything. Also, since The Mondrian is VERY Euro, it works. Another reason? It’s the Brazilian flag, he looks Brazilian, it’s the beach life culture. Again, not for the local community pool!But I would def wear this for sure… I do own a few!

When I came back from the bar, I saw THIS. I STILL don’t know if it was a (skirt/shorts)? Something made of denim, and SHREDDED TO HELL. All i can say is FUGLY. This is not attractive, not appropriate, and just a big ol’ NO! What was she thinking? “Hmm, I’m going to The Mondrian, I’m gonna wear that shredded ugly denim thing as a cover up, it’s so edgy”? NO! Put on NORMAL shorts, skirt, ANYTHING! Or better yet, get a Sarong!

Saving the best for last, This woman. She was poolside for what appeared to be a birthday, or some sort of celebration. She was late 40’s(?) and THE BEST DRESSED. PERIOD. Age appropriate length on a fun summer print dress, appropriate oversized creme day clutch, and strappy black heels to ground it. Thank God (or Buddha, or whomever is out there) for blessing me with a positive way to end this post. I’m glad to know that women, no matter what age, put in an effort, and look HOT!!

And here’s a quick pic of me ( in TOM FORD sunglasses, of course). A final thank you LA, Mondrian, and all readers who had a wonderfully Fashion Filled Summer! See you next year poolside!
