This week Staness of Menopause Makeover is hosting Fashion Flash. Athough menopause is in my rearview mirror, I love the health and fitness info on this comprehensive site. She has an indepth, yet entertaining approach to woman’s health that is such an asset for women of any age. Her new book from Harlequin, coming out in the spring, will be a comprehensive look at our health isues and solutions. She has interviewed dozrns og top experts in a wide range of fields to drill down to the most up to date data and options. Its so good Its going to be my gift book of the year.
My favorite part of Fashion Week in NYC is not the clothes on the runway but the fashion ouside the shows. Here you can really see how a designers vision is translated into real life outfits. From ballet skirts with sweatshirts shirts to leather dresses so elegant, Jackie O would have worn them, the runway looks are toned down and made wearable by industry fashionistas. In years past, if you weren’t wearing black, you looked out of place. This year there was more color and pattern, but the big news was on the ground. Where once the obligatory footwear was a black Leboutain, now the higher and wilder the better. Keep in mind that Fashion Week is spread out over several acres of step and concrete at Linclon Center.
The swarms of papparazzi made it difficult to get a good shot of a great look, so I started shooting at these amazing shoes. Some of the papparazzi noticed what I was doing, and they started to shoot the feet too. I may not have great individual style, but when it comes to photographing feet, apparently I rule. It was so chaotic that I could not get the shoe designer. If you recognize any of the these shoes, please shoot me a email.
