The end of an EPIC week in NYC.  Linsanity!!!  Don’t you love it???  Who would’ve thunk a Asian-American Harvard grad schooling Kobe… On the basketball court?  I can’t speak for all Asian-Americans but it’s almost like a cathartic release from a lifetime of belittling and being dismissed.

Oh, and NY fashion week just ended.

Love the winter white and geometric layers. Proenza Schouler. Photo: Monica Feudi / Feudiguaineri.com.

I love her take on Mod. Texture + metallics make it fresh. Victoria, Victoria Beckham. Photo: Courtesy of Victoria, Victoria Beckham.

Sporty winter whites, Lacoste-style. I was a huge Lacoste fan when Christopher Lemaire was head designer. All the good stuff was never sold here, sigh. It was just so French and sporty. Loved it. But the new guy, Felipe Oliveira Baptista, is turning out fine stuff too. Are these tights a must-have, or what? Photo: Yannis Vlamos / GoRunway.com.

Apres-ski with slouchy boots. I'm taking notes for my shopping list. Photo: Yannis Vlamos / GoRunway.com.

I love the loose, clean crewneck top. Photo: Yannis Vlamos / GoRunway.com.

Marc Jacobs never disappoints. Yes, this is high fashion, and it's a little out there for going to a movie, but look at the great layering for inspiration. High-collared, almost Victorian collar, with a jumper on top, and capri pants on bottom. Topped off with a fantastically embellished wool coat and statement hat. Photo: Marcus Tondo / GoRunway.com.

A scarf becomes a caplet of sorts with a brooch or if you can find a ginormous safety pin like this one. Photo: Marcus Tondo / GoRunway.com.

Speaking of caplets, one worn over a coat. Photo: Marcus Tondo / GoRunway.com.

I don't know why I like this super-stuffed scarf look. Maybe it's because I'm from Alaska? Photo: Marcus Tondo / GoRunway.com.

So, we go from HUGE fuzzy raver hats to this. Super clean n' chic. Marc by Marc Jacobs. Photo: Yannis Vlamos / GoRunway.com.

I love the demure printed dress with doc marten like boots. Photo: Yannis Vlamos / GoRunway.com.

In a sea of coats, I think this was one of the best. You could almost picture Joan Crawford wearing it (with a turban.) Rodarte. Photo: Monica Feudi / feudiguaineri.com.

I took issue with Lagerfeld's detatchable collars, but I like these. They're more like jewelry. Rodarte. Photo: Monica Feudi / feudiguaineri.com.

I love the ladylike lace with this geometric print. Photo: Monica Feudi / feudiguaineri.com.

Another nice detatchable collar. Photo: Monica Feudi / feudiguaineri.com.

Of course there were scores of shows (I can’t click through all of them my dears, I have a small child to feed), but these are a few things that I think translate well to spicing up everyday life.

Try it now, why wait for next winter?  The retail calendar is stupid.  You should be able to buy it when you see it.  Not a year from now.  Can’t we bring production + delivery into the 21st century?
