Tomorrow’s fashion page in The Irish Times focuses on street style from New York Fashion Week, so it’s quite apt that a lot of this week’s reading (after I filed my copy, rage!) is on that very same topic . . .

Let’s start off lightly, shall we? Leandra Medine, my favourite Man Repeller, put all of her NYFW outfits together in one post. Droolworthy. And we have the same Céline bag! Surely that means we’re BFFs.

The Washington Post asks: If you weren’t photographed, were you really there? It’s a good question. I know that one of my highlights of last season’s London Fashion Week wasn’t sitting behind Lana del Rey at Mulberry; it was having my photograph taken by a photographer from Getty Images. (And yes, it did ruin the moment somewhat when she told me, a week later, that I hadn’t made the cut on to the site itself!)

The New York Times looks at the (un?)easy friendship between brands and bloggers and points out that, for some, wearing – and being photographed wearing – a certain designer can prove very lucrative indeed. Who’da thunk it?

If you’re missing out on my fabulous London Fashion Week coverage, Anouska Proetta Brandon is over there right now and doing a stellar job photo documenting her trip. Also, she provides absolute proof of just how short the Sartorialist really is.

Speaking of Scotty, Fashionista.com chatted to the street-style photographer at an event in New York for the launch of his new book, Closer, where he revealed that he doesn’t – unlike a lot of other photographers – photograph the people who want to get photographed. Up a notch in the auld estimation there, Schuman.

And now for the self-promotional segment of our tour . . .

I wrote a piece for our property supplement on a house in Howth with the most breathtaking views, and going for a steal at €1.6 million.

On Tuesday, I contributed to a list of 20 women to follow on Twitter. Not the 20 women to follow on Twitter, mind, just 20 that myself, Laura Slattery, Orla Tinsley and Mary Fitzgerald happen to quite like.

On Thursday, I spoke to Rosanna Davison, the first Irish women in history to be featured on the cover of Playboy.

And on Monday, my column detailed the 10 pieces you must own or, at the very least, covet this A/W.

Phew! Now, get reading – and get ready for tonight’s new series of Downton Abbey on ITV . . . exciting!
