The Blogification of NYFWSS11: The Undoing
I tried really hard to keep up and do it right, but a combination of a crazy schedule and two crazy lesbians robbing me totally threw me off track. I think actually finishing one of these season reviews ought to be my upcoming New Year’s Resolution.

shopacrimony: We never thought we’d say this, but Gitman Brothers’ Vintage shirts might be too awesome. For two years now, the men of Hayes Valley have had their shirts pilfered, borrowed, and stolen by female friends/wives/girlfriends/people they let see their closets and we are here to put an end to the… Oh yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

The Blogification of NYFWSS11: The Beginning
Bensoni With a few knockouts (the long belted trench, the pleats, the better prints) and some dropouts (the jumpsuit, the bolero, the worse prints), it still feels like Bensimon is running in the middle of the pack, but there are promising indicators that Clyburn and Yoon are reading to pull ahead. Christian Siriano Too much drape, too much fluff, too much print, and — surprisingly — not enough...
