Fashion Week Diaries: Bored Models And Giant Blogging Stations At Vivienne Tam

What: Vivienne Tam Fall 2009 Presentation at her Mercer Street Store

Sitting or Standing: Standing. We were all standing, including the poor models, for two hours. I arrived only 30 minutes into the presentation and already the models were showing their boredom / annoyance / supreme discomfort via body language or by continually taking sips from mini water bottles. But they looked fantastic.

The Clothes: Structural separates, cocktail dresses, and quilted coats in rich jewel tones. 

Celeb Sightings: 0, but it was really dark in there so I could have missed out on some big ones. But usually they're lit up like Xmas trees from the flash of multiple cameras and blinding lights. Didn't see any of that, except on Tam.

Coolest Thing There: Blogging stations from HP with TouchSmart computers. There were these massively huge screens set up along the walls of the store for anyone to walk over and tweet, or live blog, about the event. I logged onto the homepage of Twitter, immediately became too self-conscious to overtly share my tweet with the entire room as I was writing it, and sent one from my phone instead.

Most Interesting Trend in the Crowd: Boyfriend blazers paired with statement necklaces. Lots of good-looking women wore oversized blazers with large bejeweled statement necklaces. One woman mentioned her vintage bib necklace was from House of Lavande. The jewelry there is stunning and available online, yet quite pricey, so you can get the look for less with this Kenneth Jay Lane Pendant Necklace ($174, was $290) paired with an Aqua Boyfriend Blazer ($88).

Most Unfashionable Person Spotted: Everyone looked good, but then again it was really dark.
