February 2012

I collected all these images through Pinterest and compiled this inspiration board by grouping images with a similar color palette. I love the soft turquoise, coral and other pastels. It’s reminiscent of my last collage shown here.  But this one has a distinctively different story.  I see here, a glamorous mom throwing a tea party for her daughter’s birthday.  She’s dressing her in her own jewels and prepping her on all the fine dining etiquette necessary to host her own tea party one day.

The Style 360 lounge at the Metropolitan Pavillion didn’t just house the Bebe fashion show which I wrote about here, it also showcased this fun photo opp by New York Post, giveaways, and these cute cupcakes.

Darling, aren’t they? You know how I love bows.

The New York Fashion Week photo opp sort of reminded me of last season’s Daily photo opp where fashionistas were encouraged to pose in front of a fake Daily cover.

During the week, I collected a bunch of fashion week goodies – all to giveaway to a lucky FabGabBlog reader like you! Look out for my next post which will give you a chance to win a New York Fashion Week goody bag.

Til then, here are some photos of goodies from seasons past…


I got into an organization mood this past weekend and found a cute way to store some random stuff.  Below are a couple retro styled, turquoise bread holders from Target turned into manicure and hairband storage bins. Think out of the box and re-purpose your bins, over-the-door shoe holders, pails, plates, cake stands, and break makers!

Here are some other turquoise inspirational photos that I found through the highly addictive site, Pinterest!

From attending NY Fashion Week, I spotted some continuing trends from as far back as fall 2011 and earlier.  One of the continuing trends was the cropped pencil pant which I just adore.  Bebe’s fashion show was a case in point.  You can expect many more slim, cropped styles in prints and solids.  Here were a couple of their basic black options.

Check out my video of the finale below
or view the full-length video shot by Bebe here

I own plenty of Bebe myself so it was exciting to have been able to have scored a front row seat.  All in all, I found the madmen – inspired fashions ladylike and very fabgab.  You may be seeing a few of their pieces in my closet and style diary soon!

Ok so I’m a little behind with my blogging.  Fashion week has ended and here I am recapping my first day.  I blame work.  My full-time fashion job has kept me slaving away for 12-14hours a day these days leaving no time for my blogging hobby.  But it is with great pleasure that I review my photos and share with you today a photo of me and my new friend, A.K a college student/cross-dresser/designer.

I don’t know what it is with me and drag queens, cross-dressers and transvestites.  I just adore them!  Being that I’m totally fascinated by makeovers, I guess it sort of makes sense.  Here he is again -this pic was from last season.  Apparently he likes pink.

I’ve been attending fashion week for over 13 years so I’ve had numerous chances to snap shots with many a fashionable drag queen.  Here are some photos from past NY Fashion Weeks.

But nobody does it better than Thailand where I just returned from vacation.  Perhaps in a future posting, I’ll show you some of the “ladyboys” that I met there!



The last time I saw Barbie at NY Fashion Week was in 2009.  This past week during NY fashion week 2012, I got to play around in Barbie’s dream closet, a magical, glittery world of Barbie fashions, endless pink shoes and girly fantasy. Check it out!

It seems the celebrities enjoyed themselves as much as I did.

pink shoes with glittery insoles!

The best part was this interactive dressing room where you got to virtually try on Barbie’s clothes.  Check out this little girl and the outfits she tried on!

I couldn’t resist trying it myself and came home with this outfit shot!

What do you think of my Barbie dress?



The scarf trend has stuck around for quite some time now (and it continues at least through Fall 2012 as far as I can see from NY fashion week).  So I had every reason to shop around while in Thailand recently where silks were everywhere and one of their biggest exports.As if I really needed a reason to shop for souvenirs, right?

Here were a few of my picks all worn differently.

To further inspire you here are some great images of how to wear YOUR scarf different ways!

I love BHLDN the special occasion site affiliated with Anthropolgie of which I’m also a fan.  They have the most unique, vintage-inspired fashions and this video perfectly captured the brand’s quirky personality and fabulous fashions.  I could see myself wearing everything!  Who else here loves BHLDN?
