The fashion industry is often accused of taking itself too seriously. So when fashion gets playful, there’s bound to be a celebration. Last week Vogue teamed with Fendi for just such a celebration at their Fifth ave flagship boutique, in honor of their new ‘Buggies’ collection. Perhaps not since Takashi’s Murakami collaboration with Louis Vuitton has such a storied design house launched a whimsical, character-based collection. With names like Lucifur, Furyou, Kooky and Dragoo – these furry friends, which can be attached to your keys or a handbag, are the lux equivalent of a Giga Pet. But the buggy details are carried throughout the accessories in other ways, from flats with ‘eyes’ to my favorite – the Peekaboo bag.
If the party’s guest list was any indication – these little critters are bound to be a hit… Beyonce’s younger sis, Solange Knowles and Vogue’s Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis cohosted; and Olivia Polermo, Grethchen Mol, Mia Moretti and Genevive Jones were among the bold face names who attended the soiree decked out in Fendi’s latest. The room was packed with dapper guests, and I chatted with friends both old and new while DJ Hannah Bronfman spun the soundtrack. No party is complete without a visit to the photobooth of course, where my friend Sian-Pierre and I practiced our best blue-steel faces.[+READ MORE]
Welcome to The Natty Style Files, a peek into the world of a fashion-obsessed gal, making a name for herself in the Big Apple, bite by bite. Expect plenty of style advice and tips to share in the fun! Read Natty’s first column here.
Recently I was invited to a wedding in Monaco. The bride: a vivacious, twentysomething, Jersey-born brunette who works for a storied fashion house in NYC. The groom: a handsome banker from a well-to-do French family, with eyes for nobody but his betrothed. The two address each other with a mix of French and English pet names, live a life deemed comfortable by anyone’s standards, and above all, exude the sort of romance and passion that inspire Nicholas Spark novels. You want to hate them but you can’t because their warmth and love radiates to everyone and anyone they come in contact with. Of course, I didn’t know most of this at the time — because the invitation came in the form of a “plus one” from my best friend, Krystal.

No matter what your size, shape, age or hair color – just about every girl loves a little arm candy. But before dessert, there must be dinner… Which is why Vogue’s dinner party for Brahmin handbags made for a perfectly balanced meal! On the enclosed rooftop of the Hotel Giraffe, about 30 stylists, editors and bloggers met for an evening of gabbing and bagging. The hosts of the evening were Brahmin and Vogue’s ‘Style Council’: a team of tastemakers, including Hannah Bronfman, Kim Pesch, Ann Colville Somma and Lisa von Weise.
The storied handbag brand, Brahmin has been family run for decades, and the passion of it’s employees is contagious. Details like handles inspired by guitar straps, and clasps from antique bags add to the brands rich heritage – while pops of cobalt blue and crossbody styles appeal to modern style-setters. One of my personal faves, the Mini Kathleen in black – is a killer combination of rock n’ roll cool, crafted in lux, crocodile stamped leather, which rings in at a reasonable $225. And as promised, after dinner must come dessert… Imagine our delight when the meal ended, and servers brought out an Ophelia bag from the Polished Party Collection for each and every one of us!

I am Natalie Decleve. I am a New York-based stylist and fashion correspondent, and founder of Natty Style, LLC. I am a travel addict, aesthete and foodie, feminist, and hopeless romantic. Home is a fifth floor studio in Manhattan’s West Village, which I’ve dubbed my Treehouse because of all the stairs you’ve got to climb to get there. I spend my days dressing my clients — the men and women of NYC — and writing for various media outlets. I spend my nights soaking up all that this rich and wild city has to offer. I am thankful each and every day to be living the dream that I envisioned as a kid growing up in California, many moons ago. Well, not exactly my dream, because as a kid, I dreamed of working in a flower shop during the day and bartending at night to afford a shoebox apartment in the center of Times Square. Thankfully, I came to my senses before I made that move. I realized that Times Square was the last place in NYC (and on Earth) where one would ever want to live, and re-calibrated my career compass toward fashion…

Valentine-NYC was begun by two gals, looking to bring romance to every day reality. By photographing individuals in their own homes, own clothes, and interviewing them on their most intimate moments – the site breeds an authenticity that’s charming and seductive.
So it makes sense that what started as a simple blog, has snowballed into a brand that will include products that speak to a the amorous lifestyle. An exclusive fragrance and lingerie line are both due to launch in December, along with a host of events at Art Basel Miami.
As a female entrepreneur, I was thrilled to support these like minded ladies by working with them to create a feature for their site. Below are highlights and video from the shoot, or click [HERE] for the real Valentine.

Recently, I got the chance to spend five days in Paris with my best friend during Paris Fashion Week. We burned the candle at both ends—shopping and show-going during the day; eating, drinking and attending parties at night. I did my best to sample all of the goat cheese crepes and macaroons in town, while simultaneously attempting to look presentable and get some work done. Did I succeed? Who knows, but I certainly had the time of my life!
