What a wedge!

leave a comment »

I am seriously hyperventilating, BIG TIME!  

I have a love for shoes, maybe a better choice of words would be obsession.  But after seeing these Charlotte Olympia for Peter Som Spring 2011 wedges, it just got a lot worse.  Crazy for, obsessed with, dreaming of are all not enough to explain what I am feeling.  Waiting til spring will be a true killer, especially when I am waiting for these must-have wedges.

The black and nude lace is my favorite but the blush lace is more spring appropriate.  Can you see the frill on the top part of the heel! The wedges are feminine mixed in with a little bit of naughty, every girl’s dream.  

My hunt for these will begin from now and I will get my hands on a pair!!

Favorite Looks from Days 2 & 3 of NYFW

I’ll cut right to chase.  So far it has been all about the whites, sheers and school boy collared shirts.  Could we get any more minimalist? Probably not, but minimalist is one of my favorite styles, so I am pretty satisfied with the spring 2011 collections, so far. Now onto the real business…

Is mixing prints still a trend? Whatever, even if it isn’t, this outfit is simple, comfortable, and chic which are all perfect for resort wear.  The black and white nautical stripes matched with a brown belt is a great way to play around with neutrals.

I have to admit I have a cropped tee obsession so when I came across this cropped chemise, I died.  Chemises are clean but Doo. Ri managed to make them both clean and hip.  Matched with a wide-legged pant, this look is more than perfect.

To me, this Ports 1961 dress is the definition of chic steaming from its modesty.  A little Faye Dunaway maybe? I also love the hair and make-up!

This Costello Tagliapietra dress is impeccably cut and wonderfully flowy.

For a little more edge while remaining to be minimal, this Rag & Bone sheer skirt maxi dress is fabulous.  The color combination of neutrals remind me of my mother, which is a good thing in this case.

Rag & Bone

With one of the most talked about new designers showing early on in fashion week, picking just one of his looks was not enough.  I narrowed it down to my two favorite looks.  The first being a powerful cream short suit matched with the most stunning feminine black bow-tie blouse.  The second is a beautiful cocktail dress, the one I would most want to own/wear out of the whole collection.

The O.M.G. moment of the 2&3 days came from none other than Christian Siriano.  I can’t say the O.M.G., in this case, implies anything positive.  Honestly, what was he thinking? Why the huge ruffles, almost double the model’s width, in an florescent red that I don’t think even existed before this dress? Even on a model this dress isn’t flattering.  Talk about extravagance!

Favorite Looks from Day 1 of NYFW

Below are some of my favorite looks from Day 1 of NYFW.  I don’t think an intro is necessary in this post other than, I couldn’t be more excited.

I love this Lyn Devon look because it is both feminine and masculine at the same time.  The cropped trouser is a spring take on the fall trouser trend.

This look makes me picture a modern-day GatsbyI love the cropped cardigan with a maxi skirt.  The volume created by the hat is to die for and it is organic too.

The styling of the outfit below is fabulous.  Who doesn’t love black and white?  The layering of the skirt and the belt add a tough edge to white blouse.

Sachin + Babi

The willowy white boho dress with rockin’ boots and a huge collared jacket make you really think that mixing and matching does work.  I totally picture a model strutting her stuff in Stockholm in this outfit.

Nicholas K

And for the O.M.G. moment of the day, Nicholas K styled his collection with a belly dancer belt inspiration! See below what I mean!  It is tied the exact same way and I am crazy for the inspiration coming from my roots.

Looking of the Week: Ravishing Rossdales

There is nothing I love more than a stylish pair.  The Rossdales are one of Hollywood’s most stylish couples that also have one of the most stylish kids in town, Kingston.  The duo look like the epitome of old Hollywood glam on their way to a wedding on a yacht in California.  

Gwen, the designer behind L.A.M.B, looks absolutely stunning in a polka dot 1950’s siren dress accessorized with a fringed bag, black Louboutin pumps, and a beige fringed shawl.  Her hair and make-up match the look perfectly.  Could you get more of a WOW factor?  

Gavin is rockin’ a beige suit, white shirt and white sneakers. What a clean-cut rocker.  BE INSPIRED.

Newly married Megan Fox chose one of my favorite designers, Azzedine Alaïa, to the VH1 Do Something Awards in Hollywood.  She wore a tan colored frock with matching Brian Atwood pumps and you can’t go wrong with either Alaia or Atwood.  I love that this dress is a delightful departure from her usual super sexy all-baring outfits.  

The Tunisian born designer is a favorite among the world’s most influential fashion industry insiders. He is synonymous for his flattering dresses and avoiding the limelight.  I  wish I owned a little black Alaïa, someday I’ll save up for one, because his silhouette has lasted decades and will continue to do so.

Find wardrobe staples such as a little black dress or a white blouse or a camel coat and invest in them. They will never go out of style so quality and fit are vital.  BE INSPIRED!

Look of the Week: Sheer Sienna

leave a comment »

 

Sienna Miller

 

Sienna Miller is the epitome of cool street style.  I love how this look defines simplicity, yet somehow, is fashion forward. A huge spring/summer trend is to wear fall fabrics such as suede and leather, Sienna does just that with her nude suede shorts.  Her cropped grey sheer tee is a neat way of making the outfit alluring.  To add a young hip feel, Sienna accessorized with off-white Opening Ceremony buckle open-toe boots, a black Balenciaga bag and silver cuffs.  She even made me want to get bangs!  Be inspired.
