FashionIt Girl: Esther Quek

If you’ve ever dabbled in the menswear trends (or admired the women who do) it’s time you should meet Esther Quek. It comes as no surprise that Esther Quek is the fashion director of menswear magazine The Rake, but what IS surprising is her uncanny ability to pull together a tailored blazer, slacks, loafers, ties, and a seriously short haircut, while still looking fabulously feminine.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, Samantha?

I am 19 and in my second year of college at Northern Arizona University, and am an active member of Alpha Omicron Pi. I am a marketing major and want to eventually become a fashion buyer! I am also the Recruitment Chair in my sorority and so far I am in love with it! I have two younger brothers that live in Phoenix (my hometown) and have a dog named Roxy that I am absolutely obsessed with!

What was your reaction when you found the Golden Ticket in your package?

For Christmas, I asked my dad for a pair of boots from LuLu*s. When I opened them up on Christmas Day, there was the Golden Ticket. I kind of stared at it for a minute, not knowing exactly what it was since I had no idea of the contest. When I asked my dad, “Is this for real?” he replied and said he wasn’t exactly sure but LuLu*s had already contacted him. Two days later I received a call from a representative, like it said I would on the ticket! From there its been a shock that I actually won!

What items on Lulus.com are you thinking about ordering with your winnings?

As for items that I have an eye on, that would most definitely be shoes since LuLu*s has the most AMAZING shoes! I love dresses too, so much that I’ve already bought two!

Thanks Samantha and enjoy your Shopping Spree!!

ArtFiercely Feminine: Meet Artist Zso

If living in New York and working as a designer/artist has ever been your dream, then meet the woman who’s living the dream; Sara Blake, otherwise known as the artist Zso. With a fierce sense of femininity, and line-work that’s off the flipping charts, Zso’s content ranges from abstract color fields broken by lightning bolts of line, to inky portraiture, and typography slicker than a ’70s hairdo.

Take an early vacation alongside Belgian supermodel Elise Crombez as she peruses the grounds of a remote villa where greenness abounds in the rolling mountains, and stately hedgerows.

FashionModel Pick of the Week: The Holidays and Beyond

Model Picks

It’s always a good day to buy a new dress, but this week we have a special recommendation from our lovely model, Kennedy… and who doesn’t love to hear what a model picks as her favorite?! The Band of Forces Black Dress is obviously cute, but Kennedy loves the box-pleated, full skirt, and the fact that this dress will pass effortlessly from the holidays into spring!
