Although it has been over two years since the fascinating Alexander McQueen passed away, his mind-blowing fashion monstrosities continue to live on, and will forever. I’ve posted several times about the fashion God’s creations in the past, but this time I felt it necessary to blog about some of the McQueen press highlights featured in Vogue, Interview, W, and I-D magazines. I found the high-fashion ensembles and the images alone to be captivating at the very least. Most adjectives can’t quite describe the amount of originality, creativity, and true understanding of couture that goes into every single one of his designs. It’s always nice to take a step back and appreciate some of the greatest designers that lay out the foundation of fashion for the rest of us.

Houndstooth, better known as the black and white checkered pattern that originated in Scotland, is most popular on coats, scarves, and other accessories.
However, I’m a fan of houndstooth booties, pencil skirts,
and blazers. I think it’s a great pattern and one of few that can remain neutral in black and white but also add such a pop to a solid outfit. Love this fun pattern. Don’t let it intimidate you.
To all of my fashion followers in the blogosphere, I apologize for being absent; school and work become very busy at this time of year and so does fall shopping, of course 😉 ! Here’s a little something to tide you over until after Labor Day- it may not be much to take in, but it’s still worth a thousand
words. Alexander McQueen is a fashion legend and I love this piece of original work that he created; such a visionary! Also, take a gander at this sassy little Labor Day look. It’s too cute for words! Have fun getting out all of your white shoe wearing out of your system this weekend because you’re officially out-of-season if you continue to do so after September 5th (which is also my birthday!) I thought I’d give you a good alternative to choose if you still want to dabble in some light hues but not get caught breaking one of the top rules of fashion. These creme heels are the epitome of adorable. Indulge!
Alexander McQueen is a fashion legend and there’s no other way to describe it. His creative work is fashion meets art meets the dark corners of your mind. Some refer to his work as romantic, some feel it’s extravagant, some may even think it’s eerie, but I personally believe that it’s untamed brilliance meets fashion totally living on the edge. Many of the outlandish designs that you’ve seen adorning Lady Gaga from award show to television interview are created by the one and only McQueen. Whether or not you can believe it, Kate Middleton’s wedding gown is actually the work of the McQueen label under his successor, Sarah Burton, who is now the company’s artistic director since Alexander McQueen’s tragic suicide last year. His dark, romantic style that brings a sense of nostalgia from centuries ago heeds incredible detail and he loved incorporating feathers and flowers and horns and spikes into his designs. Either way, his work is something you’ll remember because an Alexander McQueen design is not one that you forget nor do you confuse with any other designer’s. To honor him, the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute from now through the end of July is featuring an Alexander McQueen exhibit. Every single one of his pieces tells a story, without a doubt. As director of the museum, Thomas Campbell said, “The world is experiencing a McQueen moment.”
Yay, another S&H segment for you! I found a fabulous pair of shoes as well as a handbag on stylefind.com. The shoes are called “Fanta See” and are faux suede Luichiny heels in wine hue. The metal hardware detailing on the back of the heel as well as the lift to the bottom give this shoe some serious flair. Let’s not forget about the fact that it takes a serious heel-wearing expert to saunter around in these shoes with a heel the size of a nail! From the same website comes a handbag from the late, great Alexander McQueen. It’s a ruby-red, patent-leather satchel with similar hardware as the Luichiny heels. Two separate items that work well together!
