Favorite Looks from Day 1 of NYFW

leave a comment »

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.

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.

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.

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!

My Style: Fancying Fall

leave a comment »

I am super excited for fall because I love mid-season looks.  Today’s look is inspired by this wonderful renewed vintage Bishette bag.  The pinkish red color with beige and brown, the texture of the chenille fabric and the vintage frame make this bag one of my favorite Bishette’s of all time.  This classic 1940’s shaped bag is perfect for a day out around town while also working an evening bag.

The Metropolitan Constume Institute Gala 2010

with one comment

The Oscars of the east coast, the Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala, is THE fashion event of the year in my opinion.  I always wait in anticipation to see what everyone is wearing and when I head to NYC, I make it a point to check out the halls of the exhibition.  Last year’s Model as a Muse was one of my favorite themes ever.  This year, the theme is American Women: Fashioning a National Identity.  The hosts of the night were Oprah Winfrey, Patrick Robinson of the GAP, and Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue.  GAP is part of the American heritage and is a perfect match in my opinion for this year’s gala but how could GAP dress women for the red carpet?  I didn’t buy the high-end designers creating dresses for GAP.  Actually, I didn’t like the collaborations at all, maybe it was because I didn’t feel it was GAP enough.

I was impressed by the dresses this year, they truly defined American fashion which is simple, elegant, and modern.  Below are some of my favorite dresses.  The Calvin Klein clad ladies looked the absolute best, with my utlimate favorite being Dree Hemingway.

My Favorite Spring/Summer Bags

leave a comment »

While I have to admit that I am much for of a shoe girl than a bag girl, the shoes this spring are way too bulky for my liking.  So I decided to share with the bag ladies my favorite spring/summer bags. 

My absolute favorite bag, created by none other than Derek Lam, is original yet versatile.  It can be carried on your arm, your shoulder, or across the body.  At the same time, because of the cream and chestnut brown base, it can be worn with the latest spring trends of military, neutrals, and blushes. 

The Celine Boxy tote took over fall fashion week carried by leading fashion magazine editors.  With time, it has come to be one of my favorite new bags, simply because it is different.  We haven’t seen this shape and size for a while.  Celine also created an amazing box across the body bag in a fabulous midnight blue, so props to Phoebe Philo. 

The Miu Miu cream deerskin tote is a perfect spring classic, only if you can keep it clean.  If you can’t, and prefer black, then I would suggest the Mulberry Alexa which is very similar in style. 

For evening bags, I suggest the Judith Leiber clam shell clutch and the Alexander McQueen python clutch.  The clam shell clutch is perfect for a destination wedding while the McQueen clutch is more unique for a fashionable night out. 

Finally, the lust over bag, the craze of bloggers across the world, the Proenza Schouler PS1.  You can find it in different shapes and sizes, but my favorite is the large camel crocodile bag.  All I can say to myself though is, dream on.  Maybe one day!
