Being closed on Monday provided me the perfect opportunity to sneak down to NYC to attend the Independent Fashion Blogger "Evolving Influence" conference. There were many difference types of bloggers and more best dressed contenders in one room than I could count. I really enjoyed listening to Clark Hoyt (Public Editor, New York Times), Imran from The Business of Fashion, and Jessica from What I Wore discuss the ethics of blogging, each had such an interesting perspective, this is serious stuff folks!
But of course, fashion school is also a lot of fun: The most entertaining part of the day brought the girls from Fashionista.com, a most charming Bryanboy, precocious Tavi (who is a Style Rookie no more after so many front row seats at NYFW), Susie Bubble, and Street Peeper together (in the middle of fashion week) for a conversation on the future of blogging. It's no surprise that their online personalities translate so effortlessly into real life, they are authentic individuals who bring a unique voice to fashion.

Although The Closet has been in business in Boston for 32+ years, it happily remains under the radar. Tucked away at garden level, one must look carefully past the ivy covered brick building and into a small window display to spot the treasures inside.

"I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” ~Coco Chanel
I'm dying to see "Coco before Chanel" with Audrey Tatou
In the meantime I'm reading Paul Morand's transcription of Mademoiselle's memoirs "The Allure of Chanel" and wearing lots of stripes. The top above is from last year's cruise collection. The sweater is also Chanel, bags by Coach and Judith Leiber.
