Day to Night with AX

Day to Night with AX

It is somewhat of a bizarre feeling. Usually I am the one behind the scenes, prepared with a full belt of styling tools to make sure the model or artist looks flawless.  Or I am the one giving an interview, taking notes and making sure I capture the designer’s personality and emotion to the utmost degree.(…)

If it Ain’t Over the Knee…

If it Ain’t Over the Knee…

  … I don’t want to see it. Call it a fad, a minute obsession, a “girl and her shoes” type of infatuation, but honestly I don’t care.  It’s all I want to wrap my “Big Apple” shellac’d toes in at the moment. Over-the-knee boots, in my humble opinion, are a fresh way to accessorize(…)

VOGUE: Bibhu Mohapatra Sketch to Street Style

Couture season is about to kick off in Paris and Fall 2014 Ready to Wear shows begin in T minus 27 days.  So you can imagine that besides for amping up my fashion week travel arrangements as well as gathering fresh pens & notebooks for my reviews, the other lingering thought in my brain is…(…)

Karma Chameleon

Karma Chameleon

The proof is in the picture… I mean pudding –  I belong in Paris! At least that is what I like to tell myself especially when my garb reflects the columns of Le Palais Royal.  It’s a sign (and we all know how much I love signs) or perhaps it’s just Balmain blending into the(…)

You Can Leave Your Hat On

You Can Leave Your Hat On

Who doesn’t love a good hat?  For me – it’s an ongoing love affair along with the black and white monochrome ensembles which seems to be on fire EVERYWHERE. These photos were snapped during Paris Fashion Week this past March and I had specifically saved this hat for a very special city and a very(…)

New York Fashion Week Colors

  I didn’t realize it until I walked out the door in my red coat with a cobalt blue clutch in tow and into Lincoln Center… that everyone, and I mean everyone, was wearing the same color combination.  Even the photographers!  A bit of a surreal dream I must admit.  I guess great minds… Here(…)

Be My Vixen

Be My Vixen

Sometimes you just want to feel like a bad ass bitch. Yeah I said it. There is just something about layering a red coat, donning spiked leather booties and slapping on rouge lipstick that channels your alter ego and I gotta admit… I kinda like it.  So today I am a Vixen.  Cold hearted but(…)

Oxblood Overkill

Oxblood Overkill

It has been a major trend from last season going into the next – OXBLOOD.  Sounds so horrific and compelling at the same time. Regardless, this is one trend I have fallen for and it seems to be finding its way on to every millimeter of my body.  Yes it is overkill, but frankly I(…)

Santa Baby

Santa Baby

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone! New York is a far cry from a winter wonderland this year, but I have been fortunate enough to at least have my Santa Baby put some lovely Xmas Presents under my tree. Yes tomorrow is truly Christmas, but in “A Shah’s Life” – every day is Christmas! I(…)

A Little Proenza Here and There…

A Little Proenza Here and There…

Trying to organize my schedule for the upcoming Art Basel in Miami Beach next week has become a full time job. Between all my projects and trying to make sure I am covered for the upcoming excitement has me trying to find the pause button on life so I can take a moment to catch(…)
