The Next Carnivale of the Couture

Manolo says, the Carnivale of the Couture for the next week, it will be at the blog of the very witty Verbal Croquis. Here is the topic to be:

You are throwing a little dinner party in your apartment featuring fashion glitterati, past or present, dead or alive. You are only allowed to invite 5 people, so be careful in your selections. Feel free to include designers, style icons, journalists, models, moguls, intellectuals, you name it. Make your invite list, please share your reasons why you invited each person. Remember, every good hostess takes into consideration how their guests will mingle, so tell us about that too. For brownie points, tell us what they’re wearing, what you’ll wear and what you’ll serve, etc.

This it is the most amusing premise.

The schedule for the two weeks following this it is:

Week of Monday, March 6th – Counterfeit Chic
Week of Monday, March 13th – The Bag Snob

If you are the fashion blogger who would like to host the Carnivale and have not yet done so, please send the Manolo the email so that he may add your name to the list.

Manolo says, the Manolo’s friend the Kim she has the many links to the fashion bloggers at this week’s Carnivale de Couture!

The theme?

What was your most/least favorite part/garment/party/celebrity sighting of The Week and, as a result, are you looking forward to the upcoming season with anticipation or trepidation?

Of the course, it should be obvious to the Manolo’s internet friends what the least favorite of the moment of the Manolo was.

Carnivale of Couture #4

Manolo says, the fourth Carnivale of the Couture it is on the way early next week, to be hosted at the blog of the wonderful Kim. And what is the proposed topic?

I am so fortunate to host on the week when Fashion Week ends, the dust is settled and we can all make our assessments. So here is the question: What was your most/least favorite part/garment/party/celebrity sighting of The Week and, as a result, are you looking forward to the upcoming season with anticipation or trepidation?

This it is the excellent topic and the Manolo he encourages all of his blogging friends to participate.

Also, this week’s rolling Carnivale, the on-going blogging of the New York Fashion Week, The State of the Fashion Union, it is still being organized from the wonderful blog of the Fashiontribes.com

State of the Fashion Union

Manolo says, the Fashion Tribes they have another of the State of the Fashion Union round ups over at their most entertaining blog.

One of the favorites from this round up, it is the Fashion Divas exhortation to Look Like the Grown Up!

Probably one of the worst ideas to ever evolve in the workplace was “casual Friday,” which has insidiously snaked itself into “casual everyday,” and it does not improve the work or the image of working women. There was a time, before all this “revolution” in the workplace, when everyone who worked dressed up. Once upon a time, when being a secretary was considered respectable, secretaries dressed smartly and had an air of importance (remember Della Street?). Then somewhere along the line, the position morphed into “just a secretary” and now some ladies feel that wearing “just about anything” is acceptable. A lot of “dressing for the workplace” articles focus on the “professional woman.” Divas, if you are gainfully employed in a company, you are a professional. Dress like one.

The Manolo he could not have said it better himself.

Carnivale of the Couture #4

Manolo says, because this it is the Fashion Week, the Carnivale of the Couture it will be the ongoing fiesta of fashion! Check out the first installment of this week’s Carnivale at the Fashiontribes.com
