Soon enough the Fall and Winter will come upon us in the State of New York... I wanted to remind everybody and myself to enjoy to be outside as much as we can in the coming weeks... in a few days August is gone by and before we know it it's time to make plans for X-mas and the new Year 2012.... hey but that hurts! I don't even wanna think about that yet... so I will do my best to once again head to the beach, wear my shorts and Summer tops, platform sandals and so on... you should too :)

Well, Happy Birthday Madonna and happy birthday to all leos (I am one of those :)!
To celebrate let's go back to when we learned of Madonna (that's when she was born for us)... The 80's!
Her look back then is easily my favorite. I guess the Eighties look on Madonna is so attractive because back then she was innocent and real... a girl like us, ambitious, trying to make it happen in the Big Apple. When she was sporting this look of the 80's she did not and could not know she would be an icon, she was just herself.
Of course she also was young and cute (her daughter Lourdes reminds us of Madonna in the 80's today) and she made a look with what she had laying around the house, I imagine.

Of course many styling details pictured here are back in style today in 2011, including the duffle bag, the poka dot flats, head scarf bands, high waist jeans, boyfriend blazer, stacked bangle bracelets, etc. it's all here and now, but I have not seen that tightly tied scarf around the necks of our generation yet...
Madonna sported this tight tied style a lot, as correctly and fittingly repeatedly portrayed in these photographs. I'll steal this look for Fall!

Celebrate Madonna more!

- Yes, I'm full of myself, but I became an instant celebrity after showing my first collection in a fashion show in Zürich, 1995. It was covered by the Swiss National evening news. The Swiss press calls me "The Most Important Invention After Color TV!" This exposure lead to countless endorsements with companies such as Bernina (Sewing Machines), Philip Morris, etc. I was a judge at the Miss Switzerland 1998 competition and was chosen to design the clothing concept for the Swiss National EXPO' 02. Celebrities such as Gwen Stefani and Kelly Osbourne wear my fashion. In NYC, I gained recognition from the largest publications including WWD, Vogue, The Village Voice who called my label "The Best Name Of The Day" after Fashion Week and the New York Times declared: "IDILVICE's collection had the combination of elements that make a fashion audience sit up and take notice". Does it get better? Only The New Yorker article, which named IDILVICE one of the few lines besides Oscar De La Renta and Anna Sui to still be produced in the USA, may top that. Besides being a finalist in the Gen Art Styles 2000 and 2001 show, I have designed a couture collection for Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis.
