From grungey plaids on the Saint Laurent runway shopping tote plaids at the AW Celine show, everyone seems to mad about plaid this fall.

Diana Vreeland said that belts should be worn like braclets: Stacked! Forget Arm Parties, it's all about mixing and stacking belts. I have taken to wearing at least 2 belts at a time. Here is Madonna in the 1980s sporting some current trends in the form of pearls and distressed denim along with 3 belts.
|Wayne Thiebaud - Girl in White Boots|
|Wayne Thiebaud - Supine Woman|
Wayne Thiebaud is an artist who is known for colorfully depicting commonplace objects. Thiebaud often chooses cakes and candy as his subjects as well as urban scenes. Thiebaud's colorful portrayal of his subjects brings a vibrant, kinetic energy to his paintings.
These two paintings are probably a little less colorful than his usual paintings, but I like both looks. There is a tease of a bit of Thiebaud's flair for color in the glowing blue shadow around the Supine Woman's head. Painted in the 1960s, the looks are unsurprisingly 60s, with mod boots and a turtle neck.

Welcome to Organic Fashion, a new Filles on Film feature that spotlights all fashion with no filler. Fast-fashion, a crowded fashion week calendar, and street-style chaos has some fashion lovers wishing for a return to a simpler time when fashion shows weren't mobbed by street style photogs and fashion houses weren't lumped together in such fashion behemoths as Kering and PPR.
Organic Fashion features everything from slow fashion companies to the shouts and murmurs from fashion insiders.
Dear Fashion Industry,
Beware of privileging the privileged. Keep the door open to the self-invented superfreaks from the crap towns. This is the only way to keep fashion vital and creative. Thanks awfully.Love,
Last month, Slate featured an excerpt from Doonan's book. In the excerpt, Doonan tells the tale of how he made it out of a small, working-class town in England and start a successful career in fashion in New York City.
At the end of the excerpt, Doonan pens a short open letter to the fashion industry (above). For Doonan, fashion offered a refuge, a place where like-minded "freaks" could come together and work in a creative environment where their freakishness was not only accepted, but embraced.
Now, the path to a fashion career often starts with an internship. An unpaid internship. The people who are most likely to apply for unpaid internships are those who are already supported financially. In other words, rich kids with rich parents. So where does that leave the the superfreak from a small town in New York City? Probably at a local coffee shop as a barista.
****Update:Conde Nast ends its internship program in response to lawsuits:Click here to read more about the end of the internship program on NYmag.

Mules are the next hottest thing in footwear. Well-heeled fashion editors and bloggers have already been spotted in mules from Alexander Wang and Phillip Lim. These pom-pom mules from Sportmax are definitely on my wishlist. If only I had the bank account to buy more than one color. I love black. Take a peak in my closet and you'll see black, black, and more black. I am however, curiously drawn to the coquettish powder-puff pink ones. Decisions, decisions. Ugh why is life so hard?

Geometric is the buzzword for fall 2013. Geometric pieces popped up on dozens of Aw 2013 runways including Christopher Kane, Jil Stuart, Erdem, and Derek Lam ( just to name a few). Fashion savy girls can't seem to get enough of this graphic trend, making a big and bold geometric splash with such geo-crazy labels as Petter Pilitto and Clover Canyon.
Clockwise: Karen Millen Mixed Geo Print Dress, Christopher Kane skirt, Gianvito Rossi Geometric cut-out sandal, ASOS Geometic Clutch, Camilla and Marc Skirt, Pierre Hardy pouch, Anya Hindmarch clutch.
