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.

The month of fashion weeks has just begun and I couldn’t be more excited.  The Cut, one of my favorite fashion blogs posted on 100 designer inspirations for their Spring 2011 Collections.  I can’t wait to go back to this link after the shows and figure out if you can truly match the inspiration boards/pictures to the collections.

Below are my favorites with the ultimate being Marchesa.  I always look forward to the detailed craftsmanship and with their Orientalist inspiration, the details should be stunning.

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!

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.

Mixing Prints

leave a comment »

I saw this picture on Fabsugar.com and had to share it with you.  I have been wanting to post on the mixing prints trend forever ago and never got to it. I feel that this editorial image is the perfect inspiration.  Hopefully the picture above and my collage below will encourage you to mix prints in your fashion and interior design choices.

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!

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!
