We're just days away from the start of New York Fashion Week and there's nothing much else on our minds (save for Philo) than that. Above, two sketches from the Twinkle By Wenlan Fall 2009 collection which is said to be a "1950's-flaired" and which "sings of joie de vivre for the modern day Audrey Hepburn".
Take a gander at Grey's Anatomy actress Melissa George looking like an uptown snow princess in her wintry white ensemble. This soft tone is a sleek cold-weather option and makes for a great statement. I like how Melissa chose to go all out in head-to-toe Winter white, but if that's too bold for you, I suggest investing in a cozy coat. It's the perfect way to stay stylishly warm.
Last Sunday, mom and I spent some good old quality time together. We enjoyed a nice outdoor brunch and I wanted my look to get her motherly stamp of approval. I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!
I started you off with a pair of Chloe Filao Sunglasses ($330) because I love the purple and black combo and they'd keep the sun out of my eyes while I enjoyed brunch with mommie. Let's see what you all came up with!

This Twinkle by Wenlan Thrills & Frills Dress ($172, originally $429) makes me reminisce of grade school when I would think in watercolors. It's a frock I'd want to frolic in, but even with the discount, it's still much for something I'd only wear a couple seasons.

I have a tendency to seriously cover up when the weather is gelid. In an effort to let our skin breathe, I say peek-a-boo you. Spring will be all about sensuality so get a jumpstart with some sexy cut outs, sheer fabrics and keyhole necklines. I know it's cold outside, but don't we always want to look hot?
Twinkle by Wenlan creator Wenlan Chia knows where her strength lies. She first got attention going to class in her chunky knit sweaters, and now her knits are everywhere: on the backs of Kate Hudson and Maggie Gyllenhaal, in books, and even keeping clothes hangers warm.
I'm kind of obsessed with Wenlan's hand-knitted Twinkle Knitted Hangers, $55, because don't your chic clothes deserve chic things to hang from? I think so.
