So after two fashion-and-fun-filled years, my partnership with Rue La La's The (Style) Guide blog has officially come to an end with this final post on Polly Mellen's talk with Fern Mallis at 92Y, which I attended just before the holidays. Thanks to all my Rue peeps, past and present, for making our collaboration so enjoyable.
In honor of the recent holidays, I corralled a bunch of fashion insiders (designers, stylists, editors and the like) into dishing on the best gifts they've given and received. Hand knit sweaters, personalized scrapbooks and vintage Rolex, anyone?
From prison stripes to pencil skirts to exposed midriffs to 50 Shades of Leather Harnesses, here's what you'll be wearing (or avoiding) next season, straight from the New York Fashion Week runways. Let the crunches begin!
