If one more person says to me "Why would you want to go into fashion? It's so shallow." I'll lose my mind.

I'm about to take y'all to church.

I am a creative person, I've always been one to outwardly express the way I'm feeling. Fashion is a way to do that without having to say anything. For others Fashion is a shield, wearing a blouse with a busy print might be a way for a woman to cover up an imperfection in her physique that's particularly detrimental to her self confidence, a brightly colored pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels could be the perfect show stopper to help a business woman distract herself from her latest deposition. (I'm the king of run-on sentences, don't worry about it.) Fashion transforms people, it provides a way for us to be our best selves, or to be someone else completely.

As for my wanting to work in the industry, my explanation is simple: Fashion is one of the most cut throat industries one can be a part of, and I happen to be a very strategic (and competitive) person. That, combined with the creative aspect of the clothing, merchandising, and style is a perfect recipe for my career. Sounds wonderful right? Well don't get too excited, I haven't even graduated college yet.

Does that satiate your insatiable desire to understand the fashion industry? Didn't think so.

But I feel better. 

Hey! Don't forget to RSVP to Cincinnati's FNO on September 8th!

I can personally guarantee that if you show up impersonating either of the Olsen Twins you will be featured on this blog.

Get to it.

It's Friday

It's Friday and Rebecca Black dropped out of high school last month, all is well.

I don't know what the hell that has to do with anything we're going to talk about, but aren't you happy you know now?

Here's my Favorite Fashion Fotograph from the past week, guess where I found it!

Oh, oopsie! I found that on my other blog, Personally Public Relations! If you were thinking I was above shameless self-promotion, you were wrong. But in all fairness, that image didn't originally hail from Personally Public Relations, it hailed from the Hasselblad at the hands of Mario Testino while photographing Kate Moss' wedding reception. The white ducks wandering into the laps of fashion's most powerful women probably weren't staged, that would be too far below these sharp artistic masterminds. (I'm not telling you who the women in the photo are, because you have to go to my other website to do that! See, I just self-promoted again! But, if you don't know who (from the left) the first, second, and fourth women in the top row are, stop reading my blog.)

Okay bye!

FNO: Mark Your Calendars!

If you follow me on Tumblr, Facebook, or Twitter, you know that I've been plastering this homemade poster everywhere so you know to come see me as a Featured Blogger at Cincinnati's Fashion's Night Out.

But on the off chance that you live under a rock of ugly clothing you've missed it, here it is again, in more detail, and more hoittie toittie vernacular

Fashion’s Night Out
Saks Fifth Avenue
Sept. 8, 6-8pm

Join Stylelist, Saks Fifth Avenue, Cincy Chic and The Fagazine at the 2011 Fashion's Night Out. This fun and fabulicious event event will feature pop-up shops, a live band, DJ, complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres, and a blogger lounge. Now, I know you're all tired of seeing my ugly mug, and the unrealistically beautiful mugs of models and celebrities I post here all the time. Here's what you can do to change it: Come see yours truly in the Blogger Lounge in Saks Fifth Avenue on the night of FNO dressed in your most sartorially liberated outfit. The pictures are always more interesting if you are inebriated, and what do you know, there are complimentary drinks! So come down to Saks, imbibe, shop, and pose for me! What more can you ask for on a Thursday night? Nothing, that's what. 

See you there!

All About Arms.

Fads are always emerging in fashion, usually I don't take them into account when considering what's hot from season to season. (I mean hello, do you remember when UGG boots were all over Hollywood? Sin.) But there is one trend that I am fully on board with this season and its culmination was brought about by none other than Leandra Medine, The Man Repeller

I'm thoroughly excited about the fact that my "more is more" mentality is now being appreciated when it comes to accessorizing.

The creativity that this fad allows is the reason it is becoming a full blown trend, the more unique the jewelry the trendier your wrist is. I've seen "arm parties" that include tigers, serpents, and leopard prints. That's a zoo I'd be happy to visit. 

These are the gilded wrists of Rachel Strugatz, Accessories Editor of Women's Wear Daily. She is ready for fashion battle, and I don't even know what that battle involves. At least she's ready though, right?

Real friends don't just party together, they arm party.

So, are you going to hop on the party train? I should hope so. 


PS: Have you seen the new information on The Fagazine's Facebook page? You might want to take a look, some exciting stuff is on the horizon you won't want to miss!

Street Style: Christine Centenera

In the past two years, Christine Centenera has taken the fashion world by storm. The Fashion Editor of Harpers Bazaar Australia has an eclectic sense of style to say the least. During any Fashion Week, this sartorialistic sensation surely won't disappoint. Did you like that alliteration?

Okay, so... Go be like her, bye!

Lust for Layering

With the end of the heatwave in sight, I can not stop thinking about Fall clothing. Its no secret among my friends that I am addicted to layering, and cold weather. For someone who is all about off the wall fashion, there is nothing better than the sartorialistic freedom of wearing six layers of clothing, and twice the accessories. We get to play "dress up" every day! Nothing makes me more excited than going outside and feeling the cold air on my face, and wrapping my scarf a little tighter around my neck. Also, I haven't worn my Steve Madden military boots in five months and they need some serious TLC. 

Here are my favorite examples of Fall Style, I put them into a collage. All for you. 

So what are you looking forward to wearing this fall? Let me know in the comments!


PS: If you'd like to know where any of these looks are from, write it below in the comments, or shoot me an email at zach@thefagazine.com.

Hello readers, are you still there? I have learned a valuable lesson over the past two months, but sadly it has effected our beloved blog. In the past three months, I have gone through quite the transition. No, I didn't come out, unless you mean out of hiding. Then, yes. But don't get confused. Every person on the planet knows I'm a glitterchild. The lesson I've learned is to ask more questions when taking on new projects, and don't bite off more than you can chew! I took on too many projects at once, and the one nearest and dearest to my heart suffered. NO MORE I tell ya! No more! I've trimmed the fat with my schedule, and I'm back to basics. Well, as basic as running my fashion/celebrity/events blog is going to get.

In the mean time, while I rectify my loss of momentum on this here blog, you can check out the tumblr, turned second official blog Personally Public Relations. (I finished the design et al and launched it last week!)

I've got a special collaboration in the works with a Fashion Industry veteran who has worked in Paris, Milan, and New York so stay tuned!

Until then, enjoy my new street style obsession; Olivia Palermo.

It feels good to be back!
