giveaway.jpg?width=350The edgy, Bohemian feel of the pieces are something that you really don't see everyday and I find it very refreshing. Why should we get to know designers J. Sandoval Gomez and Nathan Kai? Well, who doesn't love traveling and long walks in the park?  

Lizzie: It’s a Sunday Afternoon, and you’re sitting at a coffee shop sipping a cappuccino, when you look up. What would be the object that catches your attention enough to inspire creativity?
J. Sandoval Gomez: Definitely the décor and the overall fe

A Sexy Litter Secret with Vienne Cheung


VienneMilanno, is rapidly becoming one of my absolute favorite brands, as I may have mentioned a time or two. I had the pleasure of speaking with founder and designer of this elegant chic line of thigh highs, Vienne Cheung.

Lizzie: Okay, so how did your company start?
VienneVienneMilano started as I was unable to find elegant thigh highs that were not associated to Halloween costumes. In the past, I was only able to find poor quality thigh highs that were also very uncomfortable to wear. My visi

Bérénice Marlohe for Harper's BAZAAR © Benjamin Kanarek

The first thing that struck me on entering the room was not the face, but the voice. I can only describe the timbre as a rich low lush sound with a very calming roundness. If she were a singer she would be an alto with an exceptionally wide vocal range. As I entered the suite I saw the face behind the voice and the two elements melded together like that of a keystone that fits in to the top of a classically elegant

Lydia Hearst for Harpers BAZAAR en Español © Benjamin Kanarek

As stated on her Twitter account, it is difficult to classify Lydia Hearst in one category only. Heiress? Model? Writer? Philanthropist? Actress?

Some qualities have been acquired by virtue of her inherited social cast and others developed as part of her unique individual talent.

The name Hearst alone brings to mind many images, the Hearst Media Empire founded by her great-great-grandfather George, the gold prospector who became milliona

Photographer / YoungJun Koo

That's so New YorkAlthough street-style photography is somewhat of a increasing interest of mine (meaning that I haven't yet managed to force myself out of the house to snap some images for myself, and instead spend my days flicking through a series of street-style blogs, day dreaming that one day I could be half the photographer the majority of these guys/girls are) I've already began picking out my favorites in regards to blogs which I would happily flick back to on a daily if not minutely

Designer / Anastasia Lomonova

That's so New York - That's right, the most recent addition to my archive of interviews is European yet now Canada-based designer, Anastasia Lomonova. The majority of you may recall my introductory post orientated around Anastasia earlier this week? Either way, she's possibly one of the nicest personalities I've spoken to in a while; not to mention her admirable efficiency in replying with the answers to my questions. Honestly, we have something special here; I just know it!

Designer / Fanny and Jessy

That's so New York - Guess what? London-based design-duo, Fanny and Jessy were kind enough to answer my interview questions; meaning that I now have aspiring designer advice, background information and opinions from the duo in hand. I have to admit, despite the fact that I feel somewhat envious of every female out there and a tinge of hatred towards the label, due to the fact that Fanny and Jessy are a womenswear label and not a menswear label, I feel partially proud to announce that this pair h
