Favorite Looks from Days 2 & 3 of NYFW

with one comment

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.

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!

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. 

Shopping Bag: Tanning it

leave a comment »

I decided to add a new feature to my blog, the shopping bag.  It is a great way to track my favorite items and at the same time share them with you.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to go back to these posts and purchase some items online or when I travel.  

The two items below don’t need much of an introduction, they speak for themselves.  Amazing, to die for, lusting over the both of them. The boxy bag is a Celine classic that will last a lifetime and the Louboutin boot is a not too rock star way of rockin’ the military look.

 I want want want!

Clueless, Calvin and Costa for Confederacy

Confederacy, an LA boutique, got Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa to remake the famous slinky white Calvin Klein slip-dress that Cher wore in Clueless.  We all remember the scene when Cher walks down the staircase for a date with Christian and her dad asks “What are you wearing” and she replies “a dress”.  Her father then responds “says who?” and she quickly anwers “Calvin Klein”.

All the blogs are blogging about the dress but as an inspiration blog I wanted to bring us back to Clueless fashion. It is by far one of the best chick and chic flicks ever.  Cher was shopping at Fendi and wearing Azzedine Alaïa, she was what we call, ‘on top of fashion’.  And ladies, please admit that you STILL dream of the computer that stores every single item of your wardrobe and helps you create outfits!

Springing into Summer

(Forever 21 dress, Zara cropped cardigan, Miu Miu bag, and Christian Louboutin pumps, jewelry from all over)

Spring is almost over and the summer is kicking in, full power.  Taking on prints this summer season is a huge hit.  My Forever 21 dress is a couple of seasons old but the colors and the print look on trend.  The cream cardigan is my favorite Zara purchase of the season so far, actually that and a pair of shoes which I will wear soon.  I love the femininity of the cardigan with its delicate sleeve details.  Then I accessorized my outfit with gold earnings, bangles from all over the place, a beige Miu Miu bag and camel Christian Louboutin heels.  My cardigan is the only item of this whole outfit purchased this season.  So dig through your closets and I am sure you’ll find different items to wear that are stylish and on trend this season.

Stella McCartney Floral Inspiration

My inspiration behind this post is THE Stella McCartney dress that is taking the fashion world by a storm, me included! It was love at first sight for me.  I would give anything to own this dress hoping for the perfect occasion to wear it.  It only deserves a perfect occasion.  Don’t you think?

Let alone being obsessed, it inspired me.  It made me anxious for girly, flirty, floral outfits.  Below are some I have created for modern women and young, flirty & fun girls. See where you fit best and be inspired!
