Give me a ballerina skirt, a pair of pom pom, pointy toe pumps, and just let me twirl. As a little girl, I fell in love with ballet, took lessons, and continued through college. My sister bought my pointe shoes as a gift, and unfortunately, I never quite reached that goal, although I still dream about it. So, any designer, that can get me to step into a tulle, ballerina skirt, has stolen my heart, and made my childhood dreams come true.
It arrived in the mail and it was perfection. I slipped it on, and I felt like a million bucks. From the moment my doorman handed me the package, I just couldn’t take it it off. It was love at first sight. If I could sleep in this pretty little number, I would. It’s the first dress to have stolen my heart since “Norma,” my wedding gown.
What to wear when it’s 90 degrees out? It’s roasty, toasty, and well…if we could just head to work in our swimsuits and sit next to an inflatable kiddie pool, that would be divine. Maybe we could add a pineapple pool float or two…(Don’t forget the margarita!).
Color combinations can be tricky, especially when piecing together your look. I don’t know about you, but I often have moments of hesitation. Does this color really work with this one? Ok, I’m not so sure, but can I make it work? When I’m creating my looks I stick to a few rules. Am I using a cool color palette or warm palette? Does the color look good with a contrasting hue, such as black? I try different options to see if they work, and usually photograph them as I go along. I always trust photos instead of my eyes.
It’s New York Fashion Week, and what could possibly be better than attending the fabulous runway shows? Being primped, pampered, and styled by TRESemmé’s expert stylists before heading to the shows. The TRESemmé lounge is actually located inside of the tents, and the hair styling is complimentary for fashionistas attending the shows. The styling team created an incredible range of looks, from intricate braids, curls, beach waves, and up dos. A few of my favorite fashion bloggers had TRESemmé styles that I absolutely loved! Check out Kendall of Styled Snapshots, Amber from Barefoot Blonde, Ariel from Something Navy, and Julia from Gal Meets Glam.
It is that time of year again. The temperatures keep dropping and the snow continues to fall. The fashionistas, editors, and stylists of New York, dress in their most fabulous outfits and Uber over to Lincoln Center, where the famous tents of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week stand tall. Yes, it’s the one and only, New York Fashion Week. It is quite a scene over at the entrance of the tents, with men and women, shuffling in and out, to see designers present their latest and greatest Fall/Winter 2015 collections. There are countless photographers waiting outside, snapping away with larger than life cameras, in order to catch the perfect street style shots. The men guarding the doors of the tents seem to have all the power in the world, just for a moment, as you just hope to make it through with flying colors.
On of my favorite events during New York Fashion Week, was Vogue’s Runway Retreat event. It was a fabulous networking lounge, which was held at Bar Boulud, right across from the fashion tents at Lincoln Center. At the event, I mingled with fashionistas, bloggers, and the team members of the fashion brands which partnered with Vogue for the event. I sipped on champagne and nibbled on delicious bites, as I learned more about each one of the brands that featured their products at the event.
New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is the fashion industry’s chance showcase high fashion on the runways. Held at the tents of Lincoln Center, designers, celebs, stylists, and fashion bloggers deck themselves out, to attend the city’s celebration of style. With all of the shows, lounges, and parties to attend, I scrambled to have outfits prepared for every event.
One of my favorite parts of spring, is fashion transition. You’ve had it with your winter wardrobe and you are considering burning your winter coat. You may walk into a boutique full of colorful spring and summer merchandise, but yet you are still walking around that awful winter coat. As much as you may want to go on a spending spree buying all of these bright beauties, you realize that it will be a few months before the weather gets warm enough to wear them.
