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!?


“Gucci, Gucci, Louis, Louis, Fendi, Fendi, Prada…”

That and so much more…I’m talking about Fashion’s Night Out and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… Hello September, could you BE more amazing already?! Unfortunately, I wasn’t cool enough able to attend either, but one day… one day, I will and it will be glorious. Hey, if I can’t be there, I’ll blog here…right? Right.


For those of you who don’t know, Fashion’s Night Out, of FNO for short, occurs once a year across the globe.  Jet-setters get your passports ready, FNO spans 19 countries from Australia to China, to Italy to Russia, to the UK and back to the good old US of A. FNO events showcase designers, models, fashion editors, and celebrities and was created in 2009 (2011 in Boston) by American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC and Co. and the City of New York.  According to, FNO “began as a collaboration intended to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.”  Judging by its overwhelming publicity and countless instagram and twitter photos, it looks like the objective was certainly met.

Check out a few FNO pictures from my spot in the world!

This was just a small prequel to some fantastic Mercedes Benz Fashion Week coverage coming soon! Until then, enjoy the fall-ish weather if you’ve got it, step on a few crunchy leaves (with a cute boot of course), and continue to drool over all the great fall patterns, colors, and fabrics, I know I will.
