It was a thrill to catch up with my old pal, the talented Mr. William Yan, at the Oscar de la Renta resort show this week.
William and I first crossed paths back in ‘08 and I cannot tell you how proud I am—and how gratifying it is—to behold the blossoming of his now massive (and beyond well-deserved) cult following. He is a true gentleman with tremendous vision; I am certain that his fresh Brooklyn studio space and new portrait work are auspicious tokens of more forthcoming success!
He snapped me on the post-show dash:
Opening Ceremony dress, Patrik Ervell dragonfly bomber, Hansel from Basel socks, Carven for Robert Clergerie espadrilles, vintage Louis Vuitton briefcase, Opening Ceremony cat print auto umbrella, Lulu Frost vintage necklace, Vanities skull bracelet

Haven’t seen Julia for a while so it was a pleasure to get an update from the stylish girl-about-town who’s always at the coolest events and doing the coolest things while balancing her studies and freelance work for numerous magazines and making it all seem like a walk in the park. #propstoya
*Side Note: Julia is one of my favs to shoot, her style is on another level and beyond amazing all the time!
True story: Yesterday morning, as I was about to head into two exams at university, I couldn’t find my good-luck Lulu Frost ”J” for a solid, oh, forty minutes… only to discover upon my return that Miss Daisy had found a new Plaza friend.
Thankfully all is intact. Silly @daisyPUFFYCAT.

Julia Frakes’ cat has commandeered her Plaza collection necklace! Silly kitty has good taste.
After taking a few of White+Warren’s cozy cashmere pieces for a whirl at their showroom last month, their lovely team asked me a few questions, which I answered over yonder.

As a longtime and dedicated Rachel Comey fan, I left her Fall 2011 show on Thursday even madder for her collection than ever—thanks to her ultra-textural prints, killer new cowboy boots and trademark oversized blazers (one of her hallmarks now honed to a T). Oh, and I caught up with Teen Vogue along the way!
My old friend, Teen Vogue Online Editor Naomi Nevitt—who, in my estimation, is the best-dressed editor in the industry with the biggest heart to match—posted this snippity snapshot and asked me a question or two…
