Dear Pennies & Pens,

It’s Pen here reporting on Ruffian Fall/Winter 2012. If you follow me on Twitter (@LoudPen), you know that I missed the show due to oversleeping. It’s a disaster that often occurs during New York Fashion Week, missing shows and events because you’re either running from another show, oversleeping, or too busy writing posts to go. However, I’ve decided to cover the show anyway because it’s not Ruffian’s fault I decided to ignore my iPhone alarm, lol. And my apologies to all involved parties for missing it.

Moving right along, for Fall/Winter 2012, Ruffian showed a collection that was chic, classic, elegant, and most of all simple. There was a broad spectrum of colors although most of the collection was black and grey. The pops of color came with a lovely red coat and hat, a royal blue dress, and a magenta business suit. These were my favorite pieces and the standouts of the collection.

Also, I must say that the Ruffian tailoring is awesome! The clothes looked as if they were custom made for each model because everything fit so well. The collection was definitely wearable, every piece could be worn by the everyday working woman who seeks to be stylish, classy, refined, and confident in her clothes. Overall, I loved the collection and next season this show won’t be missed!

And there it is. de la Pen…All Pen Everything.

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

      Thank you so much! I would definitely recommend starting on WordPress but the free ( option. allows you to purchase a template (or create an original design) and self-host but this is for professional bloggers. So until you develop your site (as far as content and audience) you should build a blog on WordPress or Tumblr. As far as tips, I think it’s great to read blogs that cover topics you care about, figure out what makes that site special and different and then start brainstorming ideas on how you can create the same success. However it’s important not to completely others ideas, use those you admire as inspiration but always be original and be yourself. Let me know if you have more questions via email at Thanks again!
