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!?


White Pants, Don’t Care…

“Never wear white after Labor Day.”

We’ve all heard it.  We’ve all followed it. Now it’s time to engage in a revolution of sorts.  I don’t know about you, but white is one of the greatest, most versatile colors (or lack thereof…) to wear year-round

While white tops and dresses, especially, have found themselves soaking up the spotlight on some recent fall/winter runways and red carpets, it is time for the white pant to follow.  Honestly, if you live anywhere warm, the chances of you actually wanting to wear pants in the summer, regardless of color, is slim – it’s hot, muggy, and humid! Just thinking about those words make me instantly feel bad for any pair of legs subjected to a ‘pants prison’ in the summer heat.

Now’s the time to give the white pants some cozy, winter love. Here’s how to take white from beachside to fireside!


This girl has it all right. Slouchy boots, structured blazer, polished scarf, oversized bag, and ass-kicking aviators. Casual and put together. What’s not to love, seriously.


I’m sorry, but there is no explanation needed.  Victoria Beckham can do no wrong, end of story.


Oh, okay Zoe Saldana. Could she be more chic right now? This may be an older picture, but the girl knows how to rock a neutral palate. This outfit needs to be on me, like, now. 


So call me crazy, but I’m not in love with the awkward rust/brown colored, mini-peacoat..thing.  Maybe its the ballooning at the base of the arms. Just not feeling it. But it is still a great example of an epic white pants crossover.

And the ‘white (pant) fight’ continues…

What are your thoughts!?
