links à la mode: the IFB weekly roundup {october 1, 2015 edition}


I was once paid to apply body glitter on male models for a L.A. runway show. Their attire? Oh… swimsuits of the speedo variety. True story. Somehow, picked out of a lineup of fashion peons. I was later convinced that it was my hair, which only a week before had been cut and bleached from long beach blonde locks to a platinum blonde bobbed asymmetric cut. All for the sake of the student vision of my friend, for the opportunity to model her creation in front of Vidal Sassoon himself… HE TOUCHED MY HAIR! And who would have thought, for the chance to apply glitter all over the bodies of male models.

Thank you IFB bloggers for bringing those moments back to memory with your posts of other fashion weeks around the globe. Milan, London, Vienna, and with a special Thai night in Vienna. We Are Ready Made left us with an extensive review of the Prada Show along with wonderfully detailed photos. Purushu Arie gave us some inspiring images of runway fashion next to interior spaces. Candy for the eyes for sure.

There is also a delightful post on cleaning out your closet. However, before you dive into that and take action, be sure to read up on the first Halloween post of the season and a fun little fashion DIY project. Both may have you seeing certain wardrobe pieces in a new light.

And, of course, the Links a la Mode post wouldn’t be complete without the reviews of current trends like the perfect black jumpsuit {said no one until now, or at least since the 80’s}, culottes, black and white, and thigh high boots just to name a few.

Recently, I discovered that my home city of San Diego, California has an upcoming fashion week, and I was looking forward to catching a glimpse of what the locals have to offer, but wouldn’t you know it, it’s all sold out. Can’t a gal catch a break? OK, OK. So, I’ve had a few glittering breaks.

I love your story from hair and body glitters on men... I once had a bf that modeled for body painting contest.
