WHAT I WANT TO WEAR TO EUROPE

Posted in Fashion, Trends with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2011 by Me & Marisa

Yes I have continued to cheat on fashion with technology. No I am not proud.

I have to say, I think I have come up with an excuse for why I have not been updating Me and Marisa as much as I normally do — I have not had my memory card reader for my camera!  That and I have been cooped up in my dark office for a little too long… we’ll go with the memory card reader excuse. I lent it to a friend of mine who is currently studying in Europe, and I have decided to get it back!

So I’m going to Europe tomorrow!  Okay just kidding, not about going to Europe but the excuse for “getting my card reader back.”

Going to be gone for 13 days, and frankly I’ve been so busy with work lately that I haven’t had the time to take any kind of extensive shopping trip (my shopping has been limited to slacks and dress shirts… blah).

So here is my little dream board about what I WISH I would be wearing on this European excursion.

P.S. I’m going to set up a Youtube account for Me & Marisa and document my Euro-travels. I’ll update tomorrow with the link to that!

ELTON JOHN’S OSCAR PARTY

Posted in Charity, Fashion, Life, Movies, Music, Oscar Weekend with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2011 by Me & Marisa

So I guess it was three weekends ago now- yes, yes, I’m slow to post- I attended Elton John’s Oscar Party which is a HUGE fundraiser for his AIDS Charity. I was lucky enough to be invited to the event by a new business partner and went with none other than Steven Tyler and his amazing girlfriend Erin. It was a truly magical night (not to mention the entire weekend!) full of amazing people, and I know I will remember it for the rest of my life.

Also- I got some video of Florence + The Machine performing at the event (she came and did an entire SET) including some of her and Elton performing Tiny Dancer which really completed my life!  I’ll try to get them up on Youtube and post links as well!

I hope to make it back next year, and someday soon bump myself up to the actual Oscars and the Governor’s Ball!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!!

Inside the cocktail and later after party portion of the event tent- check out the mirrored dance floor. It gave me vertigo every time  I stepped on, but it will hold a very dear place in my heart because of a little encounter I had with none other than Vanessa Hudgens there.  Sigh- she’s pretty stunning in person, not going to lie.

This is Sean Parker who is an amazing personal trainer and fitness model in the UK. Super nice guy. P.S. he’s 6’4″!
And then- also from the UK, my friend LUCY!!! Who I have to credit for all of these pictures :). Isn’t she gorgeous? Not to mention she was rocking the heck out of that dress.

At our table inside the dinner and watch party portion of the event.

I love Erin, she is such a fascinating lady and so beautiful! On a side note- SHE is rocking HER Gucci dress like no other.  (Also, never realized till it was pointed out to me… but we look like we are related ha)

And to my left, Mr. Gale Harold from Queer as Folk. Also a very nice guy!

Finally- had to get my picture with Mr. Chase Crawford!  Such a fun night!!!

FASHION’S NIGHT OUT (Part 2) | EVEN MORE DELAYED

Posted in Fashion, Fashion Week, Life, New York, photography, Shoes, Sightseeing, Street Style, Trends with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2010 by Me & Marisa

So I’ve decided Fashion’s Night Out may as well have been renamed “Fashion’s Amazing Window-Displays” because no punches were pulled when it came to awesome displays of style in the window and store displays around the city. Here are the last pics of that night- definitely one to remember!
-Andrew J

Friends in Fashion, I don’t remember their names though… I think his was Nick… Because I was like “Oh Nick, this is Nicholas.” haha. She had a really cool Russian name though I think.
Suzy Menkes- fashion editor for the International Herald Tribune
Victoria Beckham anyone?
Loved this lady! I asked for a picture and she just instinctively posed like this! She was definitely in her “element”.
The guy on the left (Luke) was really nice and soft spoken. We were talking when the guy on the right (Fais) came up and was like “Do you want our picture? We’re models you know.”… he was annoying and ruined an otherwise good picture of a stylish guy- model or no.
Loving this Thom Browne spacesuit Bergdorf display.
Of course, Rodarte.
Check out this girl’s two-tone tights- AWESOME!
There was a big display of these dolls at Barney’s… never figured out what they were… I said Mary -Kate and Ashley designed them haha.
Gucci baby!
Ended the night at Diesel. This guy was hilarious, Nicholas and I were just kinda walking around the store when he was like “Hey you, get over here and let’s get a picture.” hence the weird expression on my face haha. Note to self: Work out… a lot.

 

SHOES SHOES SHOES

I’ve been collecting these photos for the past few weeks of some of my favorite shoes I’ve been seeing. I’m liking three things right now: Wrap around laces, Shiny shoes, and (don’t laugh) velcro/buckle embelishments. But first things first; here is my favorite pair; Gucci baby. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

CALVIN KLEIN MENSWEAR FALL/WINTER 2010 | HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

Posted in Fashion, Trends with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2010 by Me & Marisa

In case you weren’t at the show, or just missed it on CalvinKleinCollection.com here are some favorites of mine, and some trends I picked out.  Calvin Klein is one of my absolute favorite designers as I feel the designs capture effortless elegance and class flawlessly. Hope you are having a wonderful Valentines Day!!! Weekend recap tomorrow.
-Andrew J

Opening look. Very traditional Calvin.

I was surprised by this suit, it reminded me more of something I would see out of the house of Gucci than CKM.

Calvin Klein seems to be jumping on the printed suit bandwagon as well. There was a white suit with a much… bolder… print, but I couldn’t capture it because it hurt my eyes.

I salivated over the two trenches they showed. Look at them, giving Burberry a run for their money :)

This was, in my opinion, the most intersting look that they showed… It was probably genuine leather, but it looked like some form of synthetic. In any case, it looked like a built in scarf on the jacket when it came down the runway… Very odd, but I kinda liked it.

And a suit made out of the mystery material. Also, not sure if you can tell or not, but the pants are TIGHT! Like really tight… like retro-how-did-you-ever-breathe tight.

Beautiful look.

The mystery fabric in black. I like this one.

I want this half quilted leather jacket ASAP. When does this come off the line?

The super high-back-of-neck thing was everywhere in the show. I really, really liked it. It was almost like a 1/2 turtleneck.

MENS FALL 2010 | AND I’VE SEEN ALL OF THIS BEFORE…

Posted in Fashion, Trends with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2010 by Me & Marisa

I’m perplexed, disgruntled, and all in all a little let down by the Men’s Fall 2010 lines I’ve seen thus far :(. I know it’s a bad economy and that people aren’t buying designer labels quite the way they used to, but come on; if people are going to shell out more money for a nice label, give them something they can’t find at Macy’s! The shows thus far have been very conservative and basic (*cough* Prada *cough*), but they attempt to spice them up by reintroducing the “horror” themes from last year with ghostly make-up and blood splatter. I hardly ever write a critical post, but I’ve yet to see anything that is leaving me awe struck… or even excited :(. I feel a little bit like Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada when she says “No… and I’ve seen all of this before…”

D&G looked like old school Dsquared with “Snowboarder Chic” (come on, do we really need anymore baggy pants and big Fairisle sweaters?), and Dsquared looked like D&G of old with the torn jeans, long tanks and token shirtless model.

I did manage to find a few pieces that I liked from some of the collections and my findings are below. Hope you enjoy these gems… they were a little hard to come by :/
-Andrew J.

DSQUARED


Not sure how well this look will go over if you aren’t 6’2″ but I like the cardigan and the tie. Something about the jeans remind me of high waisted dad-jeans though…


Loving the leather jacket, I think I need to pick one up in a cut like this. I have a 3/4 length leather trench, but I never wear it :/

I want this coat, like now!

C.P. COMPANY

At first with C.P. Company I was thinking… Sweat pants and plaid… “Groundbreaking.” But they had a couple looks that salvaged their 47 look show.



Great styling on this one

JOHN VARVATOS


CANALI

Canali turned out some very nice, classic pieces that still felt new.




GUCCI

Thank God for Frida Giannini, she basically saved the whole season for me! A bold statement, yes, but Gucci Men’s is one of my absolute favorites and they didn’t let me down a bit!

Dear Gucci, I would love this look sent to me, willing to negotiate on the velvet pants ;). But yes, thank you!





Yes! Si! Sim! Aye! Oui! Yep! Not enough ways to say yes to this look.

GUEST BLOG- LES FEMMES

Posted in Fashion, Guest Blog with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2009 by Me & Marisa

Today we’re doing something we’ve never done before here on Me & Marisa, and that is having a guest blogger. Today the post is coming from one of my extremely fashion savvy friends; Nicolas Bebout. Nicolas has aspirations to go to work at a New York City modeling agency, so it seems only fitting that he would be doing a post on his favorite models of the year. Hope you all had a great weekend! I’m afraid I’m down with the flu :/. Take it away Nicolas!

Fresh Faces…Different Places: Les Femmes
Fashion may make the man, but a model is what creates the excitement…at least I think so anyways. I thought it would be a brilliant idea for Me and Marisa to have a couple posts about models that were outstanding this past season/year. So I pitched the idea to Andrew and here we are!
-Nicolas

Abbey Lee
Perhaps my favorite female model that is making a huge name for herself at the moment. Lee is making her mark on the runway, walking in shows this past season for the likes of Givenchy, Gucci, Phillip Lim, Zac Posen and Lanvin, just to name a few. She has also made her mark in editorials, major ad campaigns (Calvin Klein and Gucci fragrance), and even walked in the 2009 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. Watch out, this girl is on fire!!

Anna Selezneva
A standout from when I saw her walk the Michael Kors Fall 2009 show, Anna Selezneva reminds me of younger Jessica Stam with her piercing eyes and ability to really take on whatever she is modeling. Selezneva had a great runway season for the Spring 2010 shows and is sure to be back for the Fall 2010 season.

Maryna Linchuk
Maryna has created a great balance between editorial/covers and runway. She excelled in the Spring 2010 show season and creates a great presence when she is photographed.

Toni Garrn
Toni had a great year, especially in print. While Garrn walked in shows like Bottega Veneta, Christian Dior, Fendi, and Chanel, her print work is what got my attention. Major advertising campaigns and covers propelled Toni to more than just a runway model and I can’t wait to see where she shows up next year.
