A Little Bit About…Tory Burch

It-GirlWhile living in New York city, It-Girl, Tory Burch, has maintained personal relationships with a series of extremely wealthy men. With the financial savvy of her former second husband, she began a fashion label in February 2004 in New York City. It was an immediate success and was even endorsed by Oprah Winfrey the following year. Her label has opened stores in several large American cities and has lines that are sold in several upscale specialty department stores.Logo

FlatsShe is most famous for her affordable, modernized classics, from trademark patterns to easy-chic flats topped with her graphic hardware logo. For an overnight sensation, Burch’s formula for success is as close to home as it comes. She draws inspiration from American icons of the sixties and seventies, including her fashionable mom—but ultimately, she is her own best muse. Tory Burch has won many fashion awards for her designs, and she continues to be involved in high profile personal relationships within the social elite of New York City.

  1. Thank you for the compliment! I am glad you enjoy my work. As an extrovert, the most enjoyable element of my art is experiencing the reactions of others.

    It’s great to see someone else with an interest in serious photography. Less than two years ago, I decided that it would be fun to invest in a digital SLR (with no previous photo experience), and I just sort of dove in. When you say you’re looking for an SLR, I assume you mean a digital one? I personally shoot Pentax, though I am looking to trade my equipment for Nikon this summer. However, there are excellent photographers on every system (even Canon). The important thing to consider when buying an SLR is the system- are the lenses and bodies you’re going to want in the future there, or are you going to find yourself frustrated when it’s time to upgrade? This can be a difficult decision as a beginner, especially if you aren’t sure exactly what you want to shoot (trust me, after two years, I have no idea either).

    In a perfect world, I would recommend starting with a cheap manual 35mm SLR. My first was a Ricoh KR-5 Super II, which I got with a lens for $21. For well under $100, you could have a very nice 35mm setup with a few lenses, and using a manual camera will absolutely force you to understand how ISO, aperture, and shutter speed contribute to exposure (and what happens when you get it wrong). It took me more than a year of fumbling through the automatic modes of my DSLR to understand these things, and I never really understood them until I got my film cameras. This will also give you a better idea of what’s important to you in terms of lenses and features, so you’ll be more informed when it’s time to make the big decision to invest in a digital body.

    Does this make any sense, or do I just sound like an out-of-date geezer? (To be fair, I am more or less the opposite).

  2. Hi! Would you be kind enough to share your thoughts about this in this new girl-talk girls-forum that we’re developing?

    It’s called girlsforum.com and generally a Women Chat Place to talk about girls, do relationship talk, ask for relationship advise and much more.

    It’s a women’s forum and community that also caters to improving girl style, giving beauty tips, fashion advice, makeup advice, and sharing some girl chat.I’d be very happy to see your posts there. Good day!
