New York, I Love You

New York, I Love You

My first six months of living in New York City were fabulous. I’m home for the summer, and I’m already missing the big city. I love being able to get up in the morning, put on a great outfit, walk out the door and just explore. Whether it’s dining at Sarabeth’s for brunch, reading in Central Park, or shopping in Soho, the city makes me so happy to even just walk around in. I love being surrounded by so many different and unique people. It inspires me to be better, and shouldn’t we all put ourselves in an environment that does this? I can’t wait to be back, and especially experience my first fall there. Fall is my favorite season, and it gets me all excited just thinking about being there for it.

My “The Real Real” Wishlist, and Why I’m Second Hand Shopping

My “The Real Real” Wishlist, and Why I’m Second Hand Shopping

Over the past year I’ve seen tremendous growth overall in people being more aware of the Earth and using reusable products. States and countries are banning plastic bags and straws, which is a huge step. I came back from New York City to see my hometown had banned plastic bags, and now at every store they give out paper bags or have reusable bag options. Another thing I’ve seen more and more people doing is shopping second hand clothing and accessories. Now, I can’t deny that I used to be so iffy and “a little” grossed out about buying second hand clothing online from people I don’t know, or going into a thrift store and purchasing something.

New to Me Designer That I Love, Alice McCall

I’m always on the hunt for new shops and designers to buy from, and with Instagram being a huge place where you can find tons of new designers daily, I take advantage of this. I recently came across Alice McCall’s Resort 2020 collection, and completely fell in love.

What to do in New York City, by Yourself

What to do in New York City, by Yourself

New York City is one of the most populated places in the world, and it’s one of the most loneliest ones as well. It’s very easy to feel lonely although your surrounded by so many people constantly. For me, coming to the city and knowing this was comforting, because in a city there is so much to do by yourself compared to a small town.

Virginie Viard’s First Solo Collection for Chanel

Virginie Viard’s First Solo Collection for Chanel

This past Friday Virginie Viard debuted her first solo collection for Chanel after Karl Lagerfeld’s passing in February. The Resort 2020 show had a classic Chanel feel, but I can definitely see the change that Virginie Viard is putting into action at Chanel, but change isn’t always a bad thing!

“Camp: Notes on Fashion” Best and Worst Dressed at Met Gala 2019

“Camp: Notes on Fashion” Best and Worst Dressed at Met Gala 2019

Last nights Met Gala was anything but boring, from tulle to heads and chandeliers, I’m very happy with the turnout of celebrities in actual “camp” like fashion. I normally see a sea of basic dresses that aren’t related to the theme whatsoever, but these year proved us all wrong. Of course there are still attendees that didn’t have their best dressed moment, but they were some outfits that I just can’t get enough of.

Met Gala Best Dressed 2018

Met Gala Best Dressed 2018

The Met Gala is the most extravagant event on the fashion calendar every year. To get invited to this event is a huge honor, and quite hard. But, once you are invited to the event it doesn’t stop there. What you wear to the Met Gala is the most important, because if it’s magnificent you’ll be the talk of the year, and we can say the same if you’re not. Every year there tends to be a few that gravitate towards the mermaid skin tight dresses, but we can’t focus on the negative when we have guests showing up in extravagant gowns and headpieces. The guests that dress to the theme truly take the event to another level, and I enjoy looking at the outfits every year.

“Camp: Notes on Fashion”- The Met Gala 2019 Theme

“Camp: Notes on Fashion”- The Met Gala 2019 Theme

The first Monday in May is a huge day in fashion, actually, the best day in fashion of the entire year. It’s the Oscars of the fashion world, and everyone waits all year long to see what the attendees are wearing and whom they are wearing. The most intriguing part of the whole event for me is that there’s always a theme, and that guests are highly encouraged to dress to the theme, although we always seem to see those tightly fitted mermaid dresses still.

A Lovely Brand I’m Taking Inspiration From

A Lovely Brand I’m Taking Inspiration From

I discovered Alessandra Rich just a few weeks ago on one of my intense pinning sessions. Goodness, once you go down the Pinterest rabbit hole there is no returning. Whilst pinning away I came across a photo of a model wearing one of the SS19 looks; it was the one with the model close up, in a yellow floral dress with matching belt, with lovely gloves on(that now made me realize I absolutely need a pair). She was accessorized in over sized pearls(um, YES please!) and an oversized headband. In that moment, I was hooked. Keep on Reading!

My Favorite Michael Kors Collection Yet- Spring 2019

My Favorite Michael Kors Collection Yet- Spring 2019

The prints and colors in the spring 2019 collection at Michael Kors are to die for. Bright and cheery, the pieces certainly are mood boosters for anyone that wears them. The daisy print featured in lime greens to pinks and yellows and all shades of blue, there’s no surprise that anyone that’s a lover of color wants to take this collection for a spin on a summer vacation. Even better, there are matching hats to top off the looks. Along with the daisy print that I absolutely adore, I love the pop of zebra print that is featured on bags and shoes. Keep on Reading!

Camo But Make it Fashion

Camo But Make it Fashion

“Camo but make it fashion.” That’s the first thing that came to mind when I viewed the Miu Miu Fall 2019 collection online yesterday. Of course there were bright florals and a-line dresses, but the introduction of camouflage was very unexpected for me, but I actually like it. Keep on Reading!

Karl Lagerfeld’s Last Collection for Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld’s Last Collection for Chanel

The Grand Palais was transformed into a beautiful snowy wonderland this morning for Karl Lagerfeld’s last collection with Chanel. I can’t even imagine how much emotion this day has brought to the people at Chanel, the models, and everyone attending that have memories with him. It’s an honor to attend any Chanel show, but this one definitely felt different for everyone there. Karl was honored with a moment of silence, a card was placed on every seat with an illustration by Karl of him and Coco Chanel saying “The beat goes on…”, along with a voiceover of Karl from a recent podcast.

Wearing one of Elie Saab’s Spring 2019 Couture Gowns Will Turn You Into a Sea Goddess

Wearing one of Elie Saab’s Spring 2019 Couture Gowns Will Turn You Into a Sea Goddess
Elie Saab’s Spring 2019 Couture collection is an underwater dream

Inspired by the sea, Elie Saab’s gowns and pantsuits for Spring/Summer Couture are oh so perfect. Coral branches were imagined in sequins or lace. The gowns have incredible movement; with the use of tulle and organza it made all the models look like beautiful flowing mermaids. One of the mini dresses has coral sea blossoms covering its entirety with gold accents and feathers throughout, giving off a retro-like feel that I always love.  Keep on Reading!
