Fabcam

Who else here is a dog lover?  I love them!  I also love a fab photo of a fashionista so when I see the two together, I can’t help but smile then pin my heart out.  Here are some of my recent pins from pinterest of fashionistas and their furry friends!

One of my blog’s most popular entries had to do with rain gear and what to wear in the rain linked here.  For more ideas on what to wear in the rain, here are some of my favorite shots of fashionistas in the rain.

As part II to my earlier Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week fashionistas post, this post will feature fashionistas caught by my FabCam.  For those of you who don’t already know, I shoot fellow fashionistas whose style I admire and take interest in.  There’s no fashion bashing here.  It’s all love!

Below is a lovely blonde who was wearing what looked like a vintage-styled blouse with Fall’s trendy snakeskin and the Valentino shoes that I’ve been dying for.

The blonde pictured above is a fellow blogger.  What caught my eye about her (besides her striking beauty) was that striking leather jacket.  But I love how she paired it with a swingy, simple dress, cute booties and a clutch that offered a bright pop of color.

Okay, so there are a lot of blonde beauties walking the tents of New York Fashion Week.  This one was a bit of a risk taker.  Check out those shoes!  They’re what I’d imagine an ultra-fabulous astronaut might rock.  I thought her outfit was super fun in that stunning color with the polka dots peeking out – polka dots are super trendy this fall.

I’m looking at this one and I’m thinking, model?  She certainly had the height and skinniness down and like much of whom you saw within the tents was some amazing eye candy.  Don’t you love her mustard colored Prada?  Mustard is a trend color this fall and this girl included it with professional ease.  The little fitted jacket looks great with the printed dress (is that Missoni?) and paired with those funky boots.

If you’re a regular reader, you know how I love Chanel purses and the black and white color theme so it’s no wonder this fashionista’s outfit caught my eye.  In Rachel Zoe’s words, those booties are “ba.na.nas!”  Readers, you should know that I’m up for selling my Chanel, calf-skin, chain-link purse.  just click here to check it out!

Since I’m on a roll with the blondes, I figured I’d make it the running theme of this FabCam post.  This lovely blonde reminded me of me.  She made a boo boo under her left knee!  I wore a band-aid like this for weeks after falling in my heels.  I blame the uneven concrete sidewalk.  (should have sued lol)  But ok back to the fashion.  Do you not love the mix of rough and casual (i.e. the military jacket) next to the elegant silk sheath and sparkly necklace?  Talk about casual cool.

Ok so who is your favorite?

Every fashion week, I spot well-dressed fashionistas with my FabCam and post here for my lovely readers.  Here is this year’s round-up of the best dressed fashion friends!  If you’re one of the lucky fashionistas featured, please leave a comment with your outfit description.  We wanna know who you’re wearing, how much you bought it for and any other details you care to share.

Leave it to two Asian fashionistas (spotted at the Concept Korea event that I wrote about) to rock designers purses.

These lovely ladies wore matching shoes and updos -gotta love that!  They were super sweet and I was loving their looks.

This twosome was adorable.  I loved the bow blouse and Chanel vintage purse on the lady in the left of this picture.  And I loved the shoes, bow dress and nerd glasses on the other fashionista – so geek chic!

Ok, if you guessed that these skinny giants were not mere mortals but rather models, you guessed right!  They were straight out of the Tribune fashion presentation which I will write about tomorrow.  Their personal style was cool, carefree and effortless.

Check back for my next FabCam entries on baby fashionistas spotted at NY fashion week as well as fashionistas, spotted on their own! So much eye candy!

Part of the fun of fashion week is simply admiring what everyone else is wearing.   And you can bet that my FabCam was out in full force to document all the fabulous fashions as it has in the past.  Usually, I blog about them according to some sort of theme.  Fashionistas, if you see yourself here, it’s because I enjoyed your outfit and liked your look.  Please leave a comment here with your outfit details and a little information about yourself.  What / who were you wearing?  How would you describe your look and what do you do in the fashion industry? For those of you who had your picture taken but don’t see yourself here, don’t fret.  It’s only ‘cuz you weren’t wearing animal print.  But if I shot you, you have  my fabulous seal of approval!  Check back soon because I’ll be posting more pics of fashion week fashionistas in my upcoming posts.

Here’s a roundup of some of the animal prints that I saw everywhere.

Which outfit was your favorite? And what do you think of the popularity of animal prints?

Fashion Week is filled with fashionistas with fab personal style.  This FabCam round-up features fashionistas inside the tents.  If you’re one of the fashionistas featured here, please leave a comment leaving a little detail on what you wore, the look you were going for and a little about yourself!  I hope to hear from you all.  Also, if you would post a link of this blog entry into your FB or twitter I’d so appreciate it!

I loved this fashionista’s mix of masculine and feminine.  The outfit wouldn’t have been the same without the handsome hat.

With flower in hair, ruffles on shirt and killer nude heels, this fashionista works her best model scowl.

Shorts are in.  This girl shows how to dress them up.

Military goes upscale thanks to this lovely blonde inside the tents.

I love how this fashionista effortlessly pairs a lacy black cardi with her nude dress, combining a couple key trends.

I love pairing leather jackets with dresses.   This fashionista does it right by pairing a tight-fitting leather jacket (very on trend) with a cool modern strapless dress and great leather accessories.

This outfit would be perfect for work.  elegant dress, lady bag + statement necklace.  Love it!

This monochromatic look works because of the variation in texture and luxe accessories.  Kudos to this fashionista for being both glamorous and age-appropriate.

Only a model could get away with such a short, choppy boy’s hairdo.  It was the dress though that really caught my eye – so much so that I didn’t even notice that I was photographing the famous Veronica Webb until after I shot her!

Stay tuned for more FabCam updates through the rest of the week!

The fashionistas were out in full force.  New venue, great weather, Spring 2011 fashion week..what else would you expect?

See below for some of my favorite groupings.   If you’re one of the lucky fashionistas featured here, please share with the world the details of your outfit and a little bit about yourself.  And please post this blog entry link into your blog, FB and/or twitter.

I thought the young twosome below was adorable.  I wish I was this strikingly put together and stylish at their ripe young age!

These hipsters look like they came straight from the Lower East Side .

I imagine that the below threesome work together at a top fashion magazine.  They are all so supremely stylish.  Mental note to self, aim to look this good when I reach the age of the woman in the middle!

The two lovely ladies below are NYC stylists

The above girls perfectly exemplify the “greige” trend that I wrote about earlier.

The above group had gotten stopped in their tracks so many times by photographers that by the time they got to me, they were visibly perturbed.  Thankfully, they still stopped for a quick photo.  Oh, the perils of being so striking.

The above photo was taken post-fashion show at the Time Warner Building where Jose Duran showed his line at the Samsung Experience.  I found their look so interesting, head-to-toe.

Have any favorites?  Is anyone else as inspired as I am?

My next FabCam posting will be a round-up of NY fashionistas from fashion week standing solo so standby!

There were lots of fun events to attend the past couple days.  There was the David Stark Pop-Up Store Event, The Vera Wang 20th anniversary celebration at Bloomies and tonight’s M.A.C. Pro Party.  I would have loved to attend all 3 but in the interest of time, only attended the Vera Wang and M.A.C events.   More details on both soon.  For now, I have some lovely shots to show you of the party people at M.A.C Cosmetic’s event.

As always, if you are one of the fashionistas shot by the Fabcam, it simply means I loved your look.  PLEASE let the world know the details of your outfit!  Please identify everything you wore from the accessories and shoes to the clothes on your back, and tell us a little bit about yourself.  Occupation?  How you’d describe your style or anything you’d like to share would be great!

I’ll start off by identifying the first fashionista caught on camera by the Fabcam.  Below is the beautiful and well-spoken TV host of one of my favorite makeover shows “How Do I Look,”  (Jeannie Mai). I can’t wait to hear all about the details of her look below.  I wish you could all see her sparkly new glasses which had these black rhinestones embedded in the frame.  Fab!  Jeannie, please do tell all…

Don’t you love the tuxedo jacket, graphic tee and layered necklace combo on the beauty below?

I love a girl who is unafraid to stand out in a hat.  And those sparkly shoes are catching my eye.  Where did you get those?

I didn’t think there was anyone who loved Chanel more than me.  That was until I met this girl….

Only a true fashionista could pull off leopard tights.  Love it.

Short skirts are in!  But if you’re going to show a lot of leg, do what the below fashionista did and cover a little more on top.

I should have shot everyone against this blue backdrop.  It really makes the colors pop doesn’t it?  I’m featuring this fashionista because she did a great job including vintage pieces (her hat and purse) into creating her standout look.

Ignore the naked yellow woman (more on that later!)  New Yorkers love black.  I like how this fashionista added visual interest with her ornate silver hairband and printed shoes.

Red tights are both daring and fabulous.  Wasn’t it perfect staging her by the zany red doll?

If you can’t wait to read and see more from this party which included tons of painted naked people in ‘fros and an outrageously perverted performance art piece, stay tuned.  More pics and details soon!

I’ve put in a lot of time, effort and love into starting this blog so it is so nice anytime I get recognition from others and love in the form of comments from you all.  Though it has only been 2.5 months, FabGab has accummulated over 7,000 page views, 2 mentions from Polyvore, link love from fellow bloggers, fashion stationary named after me as well as an inclusion in Glamour.com with another Glamour feature on its way.  Today, I’m flattered to announce that another fellow blogger has mentioned FabGab and given me props for my personal style.

See Your Style‘s style-spotting site is founded by Simone who owns an image consultancy.  Based in NY, she teaches “the tenets of Style Therapy” and studies “classic fashion theories.”  Like all of us, she loves Sartorialist style blogs to keep up with the latest trends and savvy fashionistas who define street style.  Sounds like my Fabcam, right?

Here’s the excerpt:

I’ve been in a constant effort to improve my site as I add myself to various fashion blogging networks and learn how to market the blog.  Some of you may have noticed small changes along the way.  For instance I’ve added buttons at the end of each entry making it easier for anyone to share entries on social networking sites, I’ve added buttons for the directories and networks I’m involved with, and I’m constantly editing and adding new WordPress plugins and other tools to improve the site.  Please let me know your feedback.  What would make navigating the site easier or more intuitive?  What are your favorite features or blog categories?  What would you like to see more of?

Please leave feedback in the comments section so I can learn what works and what could use improvement.  Like with my apartment, this blog is in constant makeover mode.
