I have been taking people's pictures for a while now and it is safe to say I have quite the collection of people pictures. It is also safe to say I have shot multiple styles and multiple types of ensembles. What I'm trying to say with all of this is that a simple ensemble like the one worn by Miss Massachusetts 2010(above)...I've seen several times. The LBD, the clutch and the heels. What makes this ensemble and other looks just as simple as this one special is the tiny details. Just look at those heels...they are something to marvel at! If I am not mistaken...look at her ring(same hand she's holding her clutch with)...it's HUGE! She looks absolutely chic. Just remember people...if you are going for a simple look please make sure the details are on point.
It's safe to say he is AMAZING. I saw him walk through the front door and I said...I MUST talk to him or else I might regret not doing so. I talked to him. We spoke briefly because he seemed like he was busy and in a rush. SO I quickly took his picture and let him go his way.
I must give a big thanks to Monique for inviting me to the premiere event for the Wicked Fit TV show on Style network. It was such a great time and Monique was so lovely. We talked about the show and how it was being filmed and she is one of very few good conversationalists.I had a wonderful time conversing with her.
I finally met Sean from BostonMO(twitter) at the Steven Alan Event. I was super excited to meet him because we talk quite a bit via Twitter and we had never met before that event. He's such a cool person to talk to. Very relaxed and social person who can keep a conversation going without it being awkward or boring. In fact...there is nothing boring about Sean! It was simply lovely meeting him.
The Emily Muller show was fantastic! Literally. It was more suited for a younger audience and it was more for women who want to look chic out on the street or at a bar. I couldn't see any of Emily Muller's pieces being worn to an office...unless you work for a wicked cool company who doesn't care so much for a strict dress code. The collection was inspired by parachutes. Parachutes are big and have a ton of flow to them. This inspiration explains the extremely well placed leather straps. In my opinion...the straps were literally the BEST touch the collection could ever have. Emily Muller really has an eye for detail and I appreciate that. It certainly shows in her work...and I tried to capture some of the details. The collection was a delight to watch. I must thank Emily Muller for inviting me to her show and her after party!
People tend to look at the general look of garments BUT forget the small details which can in many occasions make or break the garment/ensemble. Do not forget about the details! Imagine if accountants misplaced a single number in a very long equation...yeah...they would be screwed! The same goes for the tiny details of a garment.
This is the woman who made my life. Literally. So it's my first day at Boston Fashion Week and the day has ended and no more shows left. Everyone is leaving to go home. I am with my blogger friends meeting models and designers and everyone. We finally decide to leave and we are walking down a set of stairs. I spot the woman in the picture by the exit doors and I think to myself, "She must end up on my blog! I need her picture!" Before I even get the chance to verbalize my thoughts, SHE asks me if I was THE TrendyDwarf. I reply with a yes, and to that she asks if she can get a picture of me. I could never refuse such an offer and I let her get her picture. I also asked her for her picture and she was more than happy to allow me to shoot her. It was so surreal. I have never had someone recognize me AND ask for a picture of me. Don't get me wrong...I have had people recognize me on the street BUT never ask for a picture. By the way, I will NEVER get used to people recognizing me on the street. It amazes me every single time and I feel so lucky when someone does recognize me. This woman was my first and I thank her for doing what she did. I know she owns a blog BUT I can't find the card on which she wrote her blog name. All I know is that I did check her blog out and it's AMAZING.
P.s.- If YOU happen to find this post and read it...please email me your blog so I can put a link to it on this post and continue reading it for myself.
I love being part of the small dedicated fashion community here in Boston. I have made so many friends(like Martini and Nicole in the picture above) and I always enjoy their company. It literally is the BEST feeling when I walk into an event and find myself in the presence of another blogger that I know.We may come from different places or backgrounds BUT we all have one thing in common and that is our love for fashion. Us bloggers feel the need to spread our love for fashion just like sicknesses get spread around. Imagine if fashion were a sickness and we could all catch it. Our world would be full of Hermes, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, etc.
Avni Trivedi's show was ready-to-wear and was meant for a business woman. Her clothing had a very enchanting and mystical feel to it. Almost as if a fairy or some tiny adorable mystical creature could wear it. Maybe I'm just crazy and come up with random things. I don't know. What I do know is that I enjoyed this collection very much! The clothing was elegant and formal, but keeping a casual, loose, comfortable feel to it. What was so spectacular about Avni's show was the Irish step dancing at the beginning of the show with two women. It was unbelievable and it definitely set the tone for the rest of the show. I must thank Avni Trivedi for inviting me to her show and allowing me to be there and watch such a great show. I really appreciate it!
Notice the popped up jacket collar. Better yet...notice the CLUTCH! I am in love! It's like the centerpiece of the ensemble. I'm pretty sure her blue toe nails and nude shoes are matching the blue and nude color of the clutch.
Take a second and marvel at this ridiculously well done transformation. My friends Nicole, Holly, and Amanda(all bloggers by the way) were able to take Amanda's(first picture) rain coat and transform it into jumper and make it look good! The lovely Nicole is wearing it. Holly and Amanda both styled it and wrapped it around Nicole. We were probably styling and arranging the ensemble for at least 15 minutes. Let's take another second and marvel at this wonderful transformation.

The Mike&Ton collection was pretty chic. It was very ready-to-wear and the audience is a conservative business woman who's trying to look good at the office and is hitting up a bar/club after work. I enjoyed some of the garments. I mainly liked the ones with a pop of color to them or something completely unexpected. It was executed excellently. Right after the Mike&Ton show the announcer told us to stay in our seats because a separate Michael DePaulo show was going to be happening in a few minutes. While we're all waiting in The Tent, a harpist comes out and serenades us all with beautiful melodic music. It was a long while since I had heard a harp and it certainly was refreshing. After about seven minutes the Michael DePaulo show starts and beautiful models start walking out onto the runway wearing breathtaking gowns. I might have fallen in love...just a bit. The details were what made every gown so special. I loved it! Thank you to Mike&Ton for inviting me to their show(s)! I really enjoyed it and I acknowledge all the work that went into getting me a seat at the show. Thank you so very much!
