I love a good infographic and Pinterest is a great source to find fashion-related ones. Like “The History of Hair” with fun visuals of iconic hairstyles throughout the 20th century. Or this decade-by-decade overview of 100 years of women’s fashion.
Because it’s Fashion Week time again, I thought it would be fun to have another look at the infographic EcoSalon created last year about the evolution of New York Fashion Week.

“Growing old is a privilege, an adventure. You think about death but you choose life — just don’t wear beige, it might kill you.” Deb loved this quote by 73-year old artist Sue Kreitzman, taken from an article about “Fabulous Fashionistas”. This documentary from director Sue Bourne features six inspirational women whose average age is 80. Deb is holding thumbs that the documentary will soon be coming to the US too.
Gaylene loved Audi’s approach to assembling a travel wardrobe that you add to while travelling. She thought Audi’s “seeding” concept is genius, because Gaylene usually ends up enjoying a bit of shopping while on vacation.
Beth Ann found this Chris Guillebeau article on “Reducing Decisions to Focus Better” a fascinating read.
Linda very much enjoyed this blog post about Robin Wright’s wardrobe in House of Cards.
Wearing one or more very thin chain necklaces, or sporting an oversized, “this could easily slip off” loose shirt are two ways to create “sexy tension”. Vildy enjoyed Lisa Pippus’ tips on how to look sexy without going very body con or showing too much skin.
Wendy Nguyen recently launched the first issue of her own digital glossy, The FRAME. Her quote on daydreaming really spoke to La Belle Demimondaine: “I personally believe that giving ourselves permission to imagine different fashion scenarios can help us become more adventurous with our style choices. Daydreaming can create a sense of familiarity, thus allowing room for thoughtful fashion experimentation at a later time.”
Hil is a fan of South African blogger Chantelle Bester’s irreverent cosmetic reviews, and enjoyed reading her thoughts about the local Dove Real Beauty campaign.
