More Fashion Week, Please…


As we prepare to bust out our boots, jackets, and cozy sweaters, NYC is reveling in some of the most sensational Spring 2014 styles from some of the most sought-after designers in the world.  That’s right, ’tis the season for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.   It’s back for another year and it’s more glorious than ever.

Because it’s borderline impossible to go through every amazing garment that made its way down the catwalk, I thought I’d highlight a few of my favorite (and most wearable) pieces from a variety of collections.

My girl, DVF was all about orange, gold, and animal print for this Spring’s safari-esque collection, but don’t be fooled, some classic prints and textures remained.  Here are two of my favs!

There is just something about Derek Lam’s modern lines and simplistic color palate that really make me happy.  This collection’s colors? White, yellow, black, and blue – how much more basic and beautiful can you get?

Two words – Victoria Beckham.  This girl knew what was up since the Spice Girls.  Staying true to her “posh” self, her collection married femininity and boyish charm and gave us the chic lovechild that is unique textures, geometric shapes, and clean lines.  Level one girl crush, coming your way…

I don’t even know what it is about this Prabal Gurung line that I love most.  The color blocking? The pops of pastel? Gimme, gimme more ( the previous must be sung in your best Britney voice…) This is like retro Barbie meets the conventional woman and I’m kind of obsessed.

Oh, and then there was DKNY… which left me feeling confused.  Leotards on leotards…here’s a sampling:

I mean, at least she’s owning it, right?

I’ve decided that I need to attend next year’s NYFW – who’s with me!?

Out From Hibernation!

Let’s face it… I’ve really been slacking over the past few several months… but, for good reason.. at least I think so!  WordPress world, you’re lookin’ at a Mrs.!

There are few things in life that can compare to your wedding day.  I mean, in what other alternate universe are you the princess of your very own lacey, love-struck world? (Think Anne Hathaway as the Princess of Genovia… minus the frizzy hair, plaid uniform, and caterpillar eyebrows, of course…that was my middle school reality.) The dress, the flowers, the invitations, the programs, the venue, the stunning bridal party… the handsome groom<3… everything is so magical, so picturesque… and over so quickly.  I remember thinking mid-reception that this had to be a dream.  A really amazing dream.  It was as if every teeny, tiny detail that had been planned and mulled over on paper for quite sometime were sprinkled with movie-quality fairy dust and in an instant, came to life.

Sometimes life just needs a replay button, right? More on our wedding in another post… But first, – a teaser 😉

Well, it seems that I’ve missed a lot since I’ve been away – Amanda Bynes has gone crazy, KimYe had a baby, sadly, Cory Monteith has passed away, and “twerkin’” is a thing.  There have sure been a lot changes going on in the celeb-world, which I can’t wait to dissect in more detail – particularly Bynes… I’m kind of obsessed with her downward spiral/legal battles and I can’t wait for her to make a triumphant return – She’s the Man 2, anyone?  And while they’re at it, can someone please bring back “What I Like About You” – I seriously couldn’t get enough of it.  The sisterly drama, the roller coaster ride of a relationship between Holly and Vince, ah, just an (even more) modern day Ross and Rachel, if you ask me.

Thank you for bearing with me during some of the most hectic, yet exciting, times of my life.  I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things.  I’m so interested in what YOU want to read about, so let me know below!
