Yesterday evening Max and I went to The Institute of Contemporary Art to hear ‘Jason Wu in Conversation.’ To say that I had a wonderful time would be an understatement. Mr. Wu was charming, inspiring, intelligent, witty, and modest. It was a real joy to hear him speak. Basically, he’s someone that I would love to be friends with, and not just for the obvious fashion designer perks, but because he seemed like a wonderful person. Mr. Wu was completely fascinating. I share his belief in owning both practical and impractical pieces in your wardrobe, and his love of feathers, beading, and a little bit of lace. Clothes are all about fantasy and fun, and fashion is combining that in a functional and wearable way, most of the time. Personally, I have always admired Jason Wu’s talent and I love his romantic and very feminine aesthetic. It seems as if Max really enjoyed himself as well last night, as he has declared Jason Wu his favorite women’s wear designer! Overall, I hope that was not my last encounter with Mr. Wu and I wish him so much more success in his future!
As for my look, stripes and florals almost always go together, as long as they’re in the same pallet. Heels and a leather jacket never hurt anyone either.
