Fly Nation

This is not a blog. Okay, technically it is, but the point is, we didn’t create it to dispense lofty fashion counsel from behind oversized Jackie O shades. We built it because we ultimately want to interact with a Fly Nation of fashion lovers of every stripe (or floral). So whether you’re a professional fashion personality, card-carrying fashionista, or a closet shopaholic, if there’s an insane designer you think EVERYONE should check out, a great article/blog post you want to share/rant about, or you simply need to point out how crazy amazing Ann Curry’s been looking on the Today Show lately, this is the place to blog it—or read all about it!


 

It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye

 

After many seasons of salivating over designer shoes, marveling at the latest trends, and digging into the hautest fashion news, the time has come for yours truly to move on down the runway.

 

(Cue Boyz II Men’s “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye.”)

 

Though I’ve literally written over 5,000 words since November 2007 (that’s a lot of blog posts!), there are not enough words to express how thankful I am to have had the opportunity to engage with you, the Flypaper Audience whom I’ve always thought was “Fly & Mighty”—and of course indulge the Styleaholic within.

 

Stay fly… and keep up with me!

Would You Rock An Embroidered Kimono Dress Like Mary-Kate Olsen?

 

 

Hmm. Whew. The pale, pale makeup and ash blonde hair clashes quite strongly against Mary-Kate’s questionable choice of this oversized, retro, embroidered kimono dress.
In fact the overall look reminds me of Rachel Zoe and Yoko Ono in an offbeat way…

Ash’s Black Leather Studded Wedge Sneakers: Fly or ‘Bye?


Ha! Earlier this summer, I bought a very similar pair of kicks to these Ash black leather studded ‘Tiffany’ wedge sneakers but mine are baby pink and they’re just as fly as these!
Though with these in black, I’m hearing Michael Jackson’s B.A.D. ringing in my head.
