Flapper Fashion at PFW, LFW, MFW | Autumn/Winter 2012

I couldn't help but swoon over New York Fashion Week's neo-flapper offerings for Fall 2012. Each covetable dress felt like the embodiment of la vraie garçonne, and I wanted each piece to miraculously land in my closet on the double. That being said, Paris, Milan and London Fashion Weeks' shows boasted something a little different different: diversity. Think impossibly feminine chiffon columns contrasted with heavy fabric gowns, angular cutaways, sheer chevrons and corseted leather (!) flapper dresses. Simply jaw-droppingly different.

I'm going to take a moment to set aside my vintage fashion purism and tip my hat to the anything-but-customary Europeans. Check out some of my favorite looks from London, Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks below and prepare to fall in love with Deco in a totally different way!

Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Pucci, Kenzo, John Galliano

Cityblis: A New Way to Shop Honey Cooler Handmade

I'm so pleased to announce that Honey Cooler Handmade pieces are now available to buy on Cityblis! Cityblis is a platform for emerging designers to sell their work in a high-end and curated atmosphere. After poking around the site, I realized that I am in truly awesome company alongside a mere handful of designers - including CFDA award winner and milliner extraordinaire Eugenia Kim.

Check out the HCH shop on Cityblis and let me know what you think! While you're at it, be sure to scope out the rest of the site's fashion offerings. I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Honey Cooler Handmade at Urban Air Market on Sunday May 6th!

I'm so excited to be selling at Urban Air Market again on May 6th, 2012. Last year's show was my first retail event with Honey Cooler Handmade, and it was a great success! I met a lot of wonderful customers and sellers last year, and I'm pleased to be sharing a booth this time around with the amazing Kelsey of Rose La Mer Headpieces.

If you shop the festival, make sure to scope out my Souvenir Tops and Souvenir Skirts, as they'll be 15% off that day! If you RSVP to the free-to-attend festival, you can also score a special gift from Urban Air Market as well.
