#9 FALL IS HERE

To maintain my sanity while taking this semester off, I thought I would give this whole blog this another go-round! For starters, a new design thanks to the great photographer Jessica Deal!Below are a few of the great shots we got during my all American Apparel photo shoot. To view more of Jessicas work, check it out here at SJessica Deal Photography.

#6 GLITTER ON THE WEST STREETS

The guys were spotted on the streets of London fashion week. I'm crazy for the wide lapel on this Yves Saint Laurent coat. A classic with a new twist. I love how well-groomed some gents get for a fashion show. You'd think this guy was a model exiting a show, but he's just a dapperly dressed Fashion Week attendee. The mustard-colored netting on this messenger bag is a great eye-catching detail. I love it when a collar on a suit jacket is flipped up. It adds a sense of architecture to the jacket, and really frames the neck. The embossed tortoise pattern is a playful detail I've never seen before. I also love the blue shoelaces paired with the green socks. These are real English dandies! They exude that attitude that makes them able to wear suits your typical Wall Streeter could never pull off.



   




#5 BACK TO BLACK



With everything back in action in Bryant Park, Fashion Week has begun! Some of todays shows included Duckie Brown and Richard Chai. I have been following tweets all day from Andrew Mukamal, craving to be up in New York! Hope everyone keeps up with the latest updates! Also, today a very important part of the fashion industry is no longer with us. Alexander Mcqueen, we all love you and will miss you and your incredible work! 

Although not all of us have the privilege to be in New York City during this great week, it still is important for us dreamers to keep it fresh wherever we may be and look our best. This Lindsay Thornburg Party Dress is fantastic! With a flashy head piece and some killer flat boots you couldn't look any better! I stumbled upon this salsy look on lookbook. The epaulets on the tee made me die a little bit on the inside. Get ready for a glamorous fucking week everyone!

#4 WEDNESDAY NIGHT OUT

Happy hump day everyone! As I am procrastinating away on preparing for tomorrow's lectures, many of you are enjoying the night out! I pulled some great options from one of my favorites online stores at the moment, ssense.com. For my guys, this Lova Contrast Shirt pair up great with the n.d.c hand made christophe boots. Im forever a fan of boots. I love these Belle Sigerson Morrison crossover boots that would be killer with the Kova & t madeline dress. Since the boots and dress should be the center of your look, a few simple rings would be just fine! Go out and enjoy a few drinks in my honor. 




#3 DAVID DELFIN SPRING 2010

With Spring 2010 right around the corner, its time to roll out the new fashion. New to the states, David Delfin is an amazing designer with some great looks for the upcoming season! The pale greens, blues, and blacks are great colors for this season and the sleek chiffon suits are everything I am looking forward to!

 
#2 WARDROBE ADDITIONS

Since my birthday is in a matter of days, I went a little crazy on SSENSE.COM and ordered a little from my two favorite brands, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Cheap Monday. This jungle print tank is great to start off for my early spring wardrobe. With some boots and slim trousers youre golden! These trousers by Cheap Monday are great for any occasion. 

Some great finds i found for girls was this dress by Flippa K. Since it is only February some simple solid black stockings and some boots like these Flippa K Joline Ankle Boots would rock for a great date night or a night at the bar!


#1 THE START OF EVERYTHING

Some of you might know my other blog on TUMBLR which is a showcase for all the pictures I usually take. While browsing all the different fashion blogs – and there are a fucking lot – I noticed there was only not so many about North Carolina, and they haven't really focused on the people in the streets yet. So I thought I'd pick that up and try to find fashionable people in North Carolina. It will be a difficult task, since North Carolina isn't known to be a fashionable state. But I will try my best. And I will also publish some photographs of my own here, that I wouldn't publish on my other blog. A little bit about me, my name is Jonathan Strader. Right now I am an aspiring fashion student in Greensboro, North Carolina. Ill be moving to Charlotte, North Carolina in the Summer to jump-start my career in fashion. Some of my favorite designers are Alexander Wang, David Delfin, and of course.. the brilliant Karl Lagerfeld. I plan to blog a minimum of once a day, although i could go on for hours and hours on anything about fashion. Ill keep you updated on not only my own looks, but some looks i love online, in the streets, and in the papers. Right now since i have been slaving all day working on this site i am not really dressed for a V magazine shoot, but im wearing a simple Standard Cloth tee, Peoples Market slacks,  American Apparel reading glasses and a Vintage watch; great for getting work done around the place! 


Hope everyone is having a great tuesday, make sure to tune in to BRAVO tonight at 10/9C for an all new episode of Kell on Earth. Kelly Cutrone is my brunette Rachel Zoe, with a fucking lot more sass. Her show is great for inside tiips in the Public Relations and Branding side of fashion, not to mention her assitant Andrew Mukamal is the greatest thing to hit reality television.
