Prada has launched a new range inspired by the retro era, appropriately titled “Print Collection”. After all, there was no one rocking prints like June Cleaver (see: Leave It To Beaver)! “Retro millenium” would probably be a good phrase to describe this collection, because that’s what it is. It’s a vintage style modernized to fit […]

I have always admired Lena Horne from generations away, but I never truly took an interest in her until recently (I’m more Grace Kelly obsessed than anything).

I don’t think she will ever fully, officially come out of retirement, but I definitely expect to see her […]

Magazine clutches are becoming one of the season’s must haves. It’s very funky, fun & fashionable and everyone is getting in on the action- especially Rihanna: At first it confuses you. Is that a rolled up magazine? But if you look closer you will definitely notice that it is the HAUTE Magazine Clutch. I know […]

FM Reader Les recently requested Amerie’s Sunglasses: “Do you know where those sunglasses are?”. Here you go Les: These sunglasses are Vintage Cazal, made in 1986 and they are called the Cazal 865. You can have it for $237 at Vintage Sunglasses Shop. It’s not the EXACT same one though. Hope I helped!

Today’s fashion is all recycled, nothing’s new. The trends, the styles, everything! The era with the largest impact on fashion that to this day, people are still recreating is- you guessed it, THE 80’S! Leg warmers, colored leggings, bamboo earrings, acid wash jeans, hi-top fade, rope chains, Kangol hats, 3-finger rings, Adidas, bob’s, high-waisted everything, […]
