Happy 1st Birthday

Today is Buffalo Stance's 1st birthday!
I can't believe it's only been a year. From the features, to the followers, to the constant inspiration I get from the blog community, I'm astounded by how far it's come in such a short time. Thanks!

With Halloween approaching I decided to include a picture of last year's costume. I was inspired by Karin Dreijer Andersson of the band Fever Ray. I did the makeup myself and was delighted with the result. What are you planning on dressing up as this Halloween? I have a few ideas but can't seem to make up my mind.....

to dye for

These are some of my favorite photos from recent weeks. I think the environment really matches the beauty of this tunic/ dress/ top (God only knows what it is!). I won't bore you with reasons why autumn is by far my favorite season .... I'm sure you already have an idea considering my numerous posts on what I'm cooking, picking, layering, admiring, etc.

Anyway, this is totally unrelated to the outfit post but I wanted to share a funny fall story with you...

A few weeks ago, after seeing them all over my favorite blogs (fade to black, haute pursuit, fashion zen, etc), I ordered a foxtail keychain. It arrived in the mail last week and I immediately clipped it onto my favorite fringe bag (check it out in my post "barely there"). Ok so you probably are asking, "where is she going with this?" Fast forward to this past weekend when I visited my favorite local farmer's market to pick up some fresh produce and a pumpkin. As I was at the register paying, the owner's son started screaming, "SKUNK SKUNK SKUNK!!!" Chaos began to ensue. I turned to grab my purchases and bolt only to realize that what he thought was a skunk was in fact my FOXTAIL keychain!

I humbly declared my trendy accessory and began to flee the scene--but not before the farmer, stunned and in total bewilderment, gathered the item in his hands and said, "what the hell is this thing?" Ah Buffalo!

Mass Appeal 2010

 

Mass Appeal is quickly approaching us here in Buffalo.  For those readers around the globe, Mass Appeal is a annual local fashion show here in Buffalo.  It showcases local designers and boutiques that reside on the Elmwood strip (our Main St. in Buffalo).  Basically it's our equivalent to NY Fashion Week, but focusing more on local flare.  A good friend and mentor, Erin Habes heads the massive ordeal.  Anyway- I won't be walking in the show but my dj partner and I, Jessa will be providing the music for the show and hosting the afterparty at Soundlab.  This year we decided to go with a Masquerade theme- (French Vogues 90th celebration anyone?) I'm super pleased with the way the fliers turned out thanks to another wonderful friend Brandon over at Block Club Magazine.

Sheer and maxi skirts and dresses are one of my favorite fall trends. You can be covered, and still exude sex appeal.  This guy is particularly cozy.  The leaves are turning myriad colors and as the days grow shorter I'm even more drawn toward warm meals, soups, late night walks, pumpkin carving, and sipping warm cider.

Just can't get over my obsession with leopard print.

This dress reminds me of an Acne design, the leather detailing is just.... beyond....

Featured: Sofis Mode


The lovely Annika over at Sofis Mode interviewed me a few months back.  This is my first printed feature so I was more than thrilled when I received the magazine in the mail upon my return from Toronto.  I'm even more flattered to be sandwiched between the likes of Blake Lively, Whitney Port, and Lady Gaga. Thanks again Sofis Mode!

The weekend in Toronto was a smashing success.  Lots of lazy relaxation lounging at the hotel, strolls around the city,  and stopping into little french eateries. The weather was unseasonably warm which allowed us to dine al fresco.  H&M didn't fail me, and I've come home with a revamped fall wardrobe.

various states of mind

 Where I wish I was at the moment- on happier notes I'll be out of town this weekend frolicking in lovely Toronto, Ontario.  It's Craigie's birthday and I'm treating him to a celebration of sorts! Lazily lounging in hotel rooms, sipping champagne, and shopping for our fall & winter wardrobes.  Get away here we come! And happy birthday to my best friend and companion (I know gag gag) !

This outfit I ended up styling three different ways. I can be indecisive in that way.
The blouse I picked up over the weekend at my favorite vintage shop - I thought the colors complemented the fall season perfectly. The leggings were kindly sent to me courtesy of HUE, and I've basically been living in them for the past few days. They're incredibly soft and perfect for brisk autumn days. We were lucky to have a gorgeous weekend weather-wise. Craig and I took advantage of the sunny weather by traveling to the country for all the best autumnal activities, like apple-picking, cider-tastingand pumpkin-painting. We also stopped at a farmer's market where we purchased apple butter and the most delicious waxed beans we've ever tasted. Buying local produce really does make all the difference.
