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.

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

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.

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. 

My Style: Natty Nautical

leave a comment »

Who doesn’t like the nautical look?  There are so many ways to wear it that no matter what your personal style, you can wear nautical.  I opted for the more tailored nautical look blended with a little Rachel Zoe.  Rachel Zoe because of the wide legged jean which I am very excited to bring back out from my old jean closet.  Wide legged pants are huge this fall/winter and I couldn’t be more excited.  I topped of the jeans with a white tank, my nautical stripped Zara blazer and a nautical inspired Uterque scarf.

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!

Kate Moss for TopShop

The Kate Moss for Topshop summer collection has finally been launched!  Above is a video of Kate Moss modeling the collection.  I love the soft lighting continuously used in ads this season.  For those of you who have been waiting in anticipation, the collection is light and breezy with a lot of high-waisted feminine shorts.  The collection consists of more than 80 pieces. She played with fabrics such as lace, suede, silk and more.  Below I created 3 outfits from the collection.  What do you think?  Are you as excited as I am?
