I’m a big Absolutely Fabulous fan and if you like British humor and haven’t watched it – definitely check Edina and Patsy out (just in case you don’t know the show). Anyways, they crack me up in just about every single episode, but I love the ones where they are talking about fashion, models, etc….. So, when Boston Fashion Week hit here last week – I made the most of it! I made sure to fill my calender up just about every night with events and shows – really hit it hard and had an excellent time (despite a pretty decent computer malfunction smack dab in the middle which included losing MANY photos including one event last Sunday night that was stunningly BEAUTIFUL!) so – I shot the www.duplessy.org event on Saturday night (pics coming….) and went to the Gregory Fritz Laplanche show on Sunday night – which was as I said – Beautiful….. too bad those photos are probably all gone…guess I’ll know when the Geek Squad calls me to let me know the “price to retrieve my photos”…. aye aye aye…….
Monday night , I went to this really cool show @ Hotel 140 called “Remix: The Stylist Closet.” All of the clothes were vintage/secondhand store finds that were re-styled by Terry Mahn of The Stylist Closet. The models did and amazing job – worked the floor and really made you want to literally strip some of the clothes right off of them – oh wait, you could! well, not literally – but after the show – all of the items that were worn were put on a rack and wheeled into another room for purchase!!! Some amazing finds!!! I think the biggest lesson in this show was, DON’T be afraid to go into a store and find that old Army jacket and pair it with some great jeans or a skirt, and wear the hell out of it! Or that cool vest layered with a jacket and scarf that “may not” necessarily match. Be bold, be creative – and just do it!!!
Here are some of the “finds” that were re-styled!
and one more – cause you gotta just love those pants!!
So, there you have it – the Remix show….. definitely got some ideas, scored a vintage necklace at the sale…and had an amazing time! More pics on my website too of some of the other outfits!
