Kate Spade – An Homage to NYC

I can’t get over how fun and whimsical Kate Spade’s collection always are. Every time she unveils a new collection, we never no what we’re in for or where she’s going to take us. I loved the inspiration behind her Spring 2013 collection, but this one is even better. I definitely agree with WWD, when they described the collection as celebrating all things New York, fashioning iconic symbols into various fun looks, with Studio 54 also being an influence.

The Carrie Diaries: Playing Favorites

Season 1, Episode 4

Fright Night

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I will say, I think the highlight of this week’s episode by FAR for me was seeing Carrie and Walt dress for a Halloween party as Princess Di and Prince Charles, but I digress….

Anyway, my favorite look this week was Maggie’s red leather jacket (similar here and here) and red knit top (cute option here) combo.  Am I mistaken, or is that a vintage Chanel bag I see on her shoulder? While I’m not sure about the bag, I am sure that her look above is great! How easily could you see yourself sporting this look paired with a cute pair of boyfriend jeans and heels or booties for a great weekend look? I’m still loving the brilliant mix of classic 80’s vintage style with modern trendy pieces.

You’re brilliant Eric!

What was your favorite look from this week?

The Carrie Diaries: 80’s Fashion With A Modern Twist

Well friends, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, then you know that Carrie Bradshaw is back! Well, the teenage Carrie Bradshaw. On 01/14/13, The Carrie Diaries, prequel to Sex in the City and based on the  books by SATC author Candice Bushnell, premiered on The CW.

THE CARRIE DIARIES

 

We all had expectations, some of us reservations of how good this could and would actually be. Having read both books in the series, I was skeptical on how true to the books they would stay and how this might affect our view of our beloved and iconic Carrie of SATC.  Verdict is in:  I love it! I love it so much so, that I’ve been inspired to do my own weekly series of each week – a review of my favorite look for each week’s episode.

Bling Party

Aside from shoes, there are few things that I love as much as some good bling! Great accessories can make such a great statement and can dress up even the simplest of outfits. Below are a few of my favorite “bling” examples from some of my outfit posts.  So, go on my friends – bling on!

Of course you know a girl can’t have enough bling, right? I’ve been browsing around online and came across this, this and this! I think I have a “bling problem.”

Two 2013 Resorts Collections I’m Swooning Over!

I am a firm believer that it is never too early in the winter season to start thinking of fabulous spring fashion. Case in point, new upcoming spring collections are shown many, many months ahead of the actual chronological occurrence of the season itself at fashion week, so I think this justifies my spring cravings in January. Hey, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!  😉

As I scoured the internet looking for the latest information on upcoming spring fashion, I happened to stumble upon two Resort collections that caught my eye.   Now, spring collections aside, Resort Collections are even better! Two of my favorite designers and inspirations: Tory Burch and Rebecca Minkoff. Now, not only am I craving spring fashion, but ready to sail onto into summer for a tropical getaway!

I have always loved TORY BURCH. I admire her not just because of the strong, intelligent and creative genius that she is or my love for that famous brand emblem that embellishes her accessories, but for the  bright, clean and chic aesthetic that always is epitomized in her collections.  The bright sunny colors, the patterns, the great accessories? Tell, what about her above collection doesn’t instantly speak to you and make you ready to take off to a tropical getaway? 

Ever since I saw my first Mini Mac, REBECCA MINKOFF stole my heart. Her collections always have such interesting and great inspirations behind them each season and somehow I’m always instantly put in a better mood after viewing them. The sneak peak that we’re shown in the video above for her upcoming 2013 Resort & Cruise  Collection has me longing for poolside afternoons, warm beaches and cute sandals – and of course one of her fabulous bags!

What do you think of the collections?

It’s my favorite time of year (well one of my favorite times of year – at least fashion-wise) – awards season! What is it about award show red carpets that makes me so silly and giddy? I LOVE seeing what the stars will be wearing.  Sometimes I feel like a member of E’s “Fashion Police” or something! Well, I might not be as “critical” as Joan Rivers, but I definitely have quite an opinion sometimes when it comes to red carpet fashion.

The trends I saw from this year’s Golden Globes red carpet were a lot of red, nudes and whites. I was expecting much more bright color and was surprised we didn’t see more. Despite this though, there were a few looks that stood out to me, and that I really loved, which I have presented to you above. My best dressed this year BY FAR was Jessica Alba. She was STUNNING in her dusty peach Oscar de la Renta gown! I usually don’t like “mermaid” style dresses, but I really liked this one! I also loved the long train of the dress, her “Old Hollywood” style hair and of course the bling!

Two of my “best dressed” choices, Ann Hathaway and Lucy Liu, I can tell you not everyone will agree with.  A lot of people were saying that Ann’s dress was too plain and simple and that she needed more color. I couldn’t disagree with this more! I loved the simplicity of her dress and it’s sparkle. Now, on to Lucy Liu. Lucy definitely made a statement and took a risk in her huge “princess-like” floral Carolina Herrera dress. This, however, is why I love it so much. Fashion sometimes is all about taking a risk and trying something different. I loved the florals and color! The idea of florals in the heart of winter I think is a lovely idea!

So, who were your “best dressed”?

Fashion Hit List: 3.1 Phillip Lim Booties

3.1 Phillip Lim Peggy Metallic Ankle Booties. Ooooh these booties! I first heard about them when one of my favorite bloggers, Corals + Cognacs , tweeted about her recent purchase of  these babies. I then started seeing them popping up in outfit posts on some of my favorite blogs and let me tell you – it was “love at first sigh”! Them make such a statement and are so chic. At first glance they may seem like a little too much, but when paired with an otherwise simple or neutral pieces, they are AWESOME!

I’ll be honest, they would be quite the investment for me, but one that would be well worth it, as they are high quality shoes and some that I would wear over and over again. I’m currently keeping an “eagle’s eye” on them and waiting to see if they go on sale! I sincerely hope I can obtain myself a pair, as I can imagine so many fabulous outfit posts coming with these babies been the star!   😉

What do you think of these statement making shoes?
