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!

My Style: The Definition of Me

with one comment

If you know me well, you know that this look can’t get any more Nadine.  I always play with trends and mix up my look and yet you’ll always see me go back to my original simple tailored look.  Are you thinking, what is there to this look?  My answer to you would be, some of the most stylish people we know, have the simplest looks ever. Examples include Carolina Herrera known for her never-changing white shirt matched with a black skirt, Tonne Goodman, Vogue’s Fashion Director, known for her classic american style and Karl Lagerfeld known for his black suit, white shirt, white pulled back ponytail and black sunglasses.  

I don’t mean to compare myself with these fashion icons, but I want to share with you a lesson that I have learnt throughout the years.  It is always fun to play around, but once you stick to what looks best on you, you’ll exude confidence, comfort and most importantly style.

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!

Look of the Week: Just Julia

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Carine Roitfeld’s daughter and one of NYC’s socialites, sports the latest spring trends with an ultimate utilitarian cool.  Her neutral dress, which is the first spring trend, is draped, trend two, and topped with a military jacket, trend three.  On top of this practical yet stylish outfit she accessorizes with classic Chanel quilted bag, sky-high chunky platforms and simple gold jewelry.  I love how the contrasting outfit works perfectly.  She is trendy yet classy, feminine yet androgynous.  Be inspired. 

Look of the Week: A Simple Victoria

Victoria Beckham sporting menswear attire

Departing from her usual Victoria Beckham dress, super high heels, and Hermes bag; Posh is actually sporting a casual look.  This menswear inspired outfit really suits her and I suggest she continues down this road every once in a while.  I love the how not one item is the same color as the other, yet it is perfectly pulled.  I think it has something to do with the neutral tones she is using.  Perfection.  What do u think?
