"First rule of politics, kiddo: Never let the truth get in the way of a good story."

The Boardwalk Empire is one of HBO's newest series that I`m currently hooked on not only because of it's story line , but also for its beautiful costume and wardrobe design by John Dunn. Ah the tailored suits, the furs...wouldn't you love to live in a time where being this well dressed was the norm ?!

Trending Topic: Suit Up!

Lately, the androgynous suit/tuxedo look has been very popular within numerous fashion outlets. Some women choose to add a touch of femininity to the look while others prefer to maintain the classic quality minus the flair. Personally, I love women in suits and if the occasion arose, I would definitely wear one. What's your take on this look?

"STYLE-without it, you're nobody" - Diana Vreeland

Last Thursday I visited Museum of the City of New York to see their exhibit  "Notorious & Notable: 20th Century Women of Style".
They featured 80 prominent women from Jacqueline Kennedy to Gypsy Rose Lee who all captivated the world with their intelligence, wits, and impeccable style.

(This black gown was one of my favorite looks. It's Tina Chow, who was known for her love of vintage pieces =). She's wearing  "Homage to CoCo Chanel" by Karl Lagerfeld. All of the accessories are actually embellishments of the dress!)

(This blue dress was another favorite , worn by the gorgeous, legendary Lena Horne. Attributed to Giorgio di Sant'Angelo)

I wasn't permitted to use a flash, only my camera phone, so I apologize for the poor quality of the pics .
If you are in the city of New York anytime soon , check out this brilliant exhibit before it ends January 2nd and be sure to tell us your favorite style icon.

"Style is primarily a matter of instinct"

Well, these photographs definitely didn't come out as good as I intended. First off I blame my dad who acted as my photographer, he was antsy, trying to rush the process. Also, I hate posing for pictures which usually results in me appearing extremely awkward. I apologize for the awkwardness, LOL.

By the way, I bought this blazer from a vintage thrift store over the summer. It has definitely become one of my favorites and I wear it often. Unfortunately as we move closer to the winter, it is becoming entirely too cold to wear. I was freezing last Thursday when I wore it to class.

"You want perfection? Go buy a Barbie doll ."

I don't know why I was browsing but while on the site I came across some Barbie dolls in very trendy outfits. Below are a few of my favorite looks.
