Fashion Adulting: Closet Curation, Spend or Save

When you’re young, you buy what appeals to you, what you think will make you stand out and seem different- paying little attention to fit, silhouette, print and color, or whether or not the garment wears you.  As you mature and grow into your style, you learn what to splurge and save on, what flatters…

Fashion Ads Spring/Summer 2017

Balmain Chanel Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2017 ads evoked a high saturation in your face boldness that matched the futuristic robitic theme in a cool way, although the fashions themselves might not have as notable as the robot bag. Louis Vuitton Louis Vuitton’s newest bag, part of the Series 6 ad campaign, is to die for! Coach…

Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2017

Seventies influences met with a western flair- layered contrasting colors and textures with knits, graphic tees, creepy faces photo prints, ascots, double breasted jackets, ski masks…there was a lot going on in the Vivienne Westwood Fall/Winter 2017 collection.

Walk Fashion Show Miami 2016

Fashion Show Playlist: The Walk Fashion Show in Miami, held Saturday, December 3rd, was full of unique designs, original looks, fresh faces and talent.  Designers showcased everything from wearable art- hand painted denim- to swimwear and evening-wear.

Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2017

Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2017 was a continuation of their against-the-grain 80’s vibe…the only thing on-trend about it was the carpet bagger jackets. The silhouettes, the grotesque sloppiness of it all was off-putting – it was stiff and cheap with leather, gold lamé…sleeves and shoulders dropped more and more throughout the show. Is that a drop…

Balmain Spring/Summer 2017

Can I be honest? I want Balmain to switch it up next fall in a major way. This is like a three season transition here, and while there have been such glamorous looks, I feel like there isn’t enough of a contrast from SS16 to SS17. The post-Olivier Balmain has gone from edgy and grunge…

Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2017

Fencing has been done recently, but for Spring/Summer 2017 Dior put its own spin on it. Jackets, vests, and dresses bore signature details of the sport: quilting, straps, and studs, with a nod of a hat or visor. Gorgeous graphic dresses, knits, and skirts; on-trend below the knee skirts paired with red Moto jackets and…

Backtrack to Versace Spring/Summer 2017 MFW

The Versace Spring/Summer 2017 fashion show featured windbreakers, sporty body suits, drawstring gathered dresses, and suits belted at the natural waistline. The color palette tottered between the dark, with black, and the bold, with emerald green, grape, yellow, all sewn into an abstract graphic print.  The square-toe platform boots have a pop of color and…

Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2017

Since it is Throwback Thursday, let’s discuss the Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2017 LFW collection, an avant-garde, grandiose, even theatrical show. Like something out of a Lady Gaga video, this dark and dramatic 3D sculptural masterpiece strut onto the runway. Speaking of which, I can see her, Beyoncé, and Katy Perry in Pugh, and feel as…

Moschino Spring/Summer 2017

Jeremy Scott’s nostalgic pop culture, animated, and fashion referencing designs always have us reliving our childhood…now through paper dolls. Tabs on the sides of garments, all about teddy backpacks, and even on faux caps created this magical runway show full of paper barbies…a continuation from seasons past and, given I didn’t like the last shows,…
