Runway Looks, Lolita Style - Ruffian

Images via NY Mag
Lolitas should look towards Ruffian. There design concept is very Victoriana and very vintage (not retro) chic. And lots of tweed and wool.

I like this collection because it harkens to Sam Spade movies and the mysterious woman looking for a detective to solve her mystery.

Leather and tweed really sells the outfit. But the blue fedora takes the cake.
I'll be honest Ruffian's fall collection is an excuse for me to post outfits with fedoras.  However the outfits are stunning and I'm attracted to ready-to-wear that fits my personal style (not neccessarily Lolita, but works both way the same).

This coordinate was inspired by Ruffian's ability to use one item to make the whole outfit pop - whether it is a gold belt on a all blue outfit or bright blue fedora on an all black outfit.

Bodyline heart jacket - $50
Mastina Blouse (from Hong Kong) - $10

Metamorphose Tweed skirt - $100
Angora fedora - $20

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
