A Look at the Dior Autumn/Winter 2020-2021 Haute Couture Collection

The Chanel Cruise 2020/2021 Collection

The Chanel Cruise 2020/2021 Collection

As the music and visuals started for the Chanel Cruise 2020/21 collection on IGTV, I for a second deemed this to be a fantastic collection for Virginie Viard. The music was divine, Time by Arca, and for a virtual show I knew I couldn’t be too picky of the set especially given it’s the first digital show for Chanel in history (but still, it’s Chanel..) But further in I began to notice an unfortunate tale of too much denim that Chanel does not need, and triangle bags that have Karl and Coco turning.

The History of The Fashion Show, and Why I Think it’s Still of Great Importance for the Industry

The History of The Fashion Show, and Why I Think it’s Still of Great Importance for the Industry

When I come to think of it, I’m more old-school than modern when it comes to many things. When talking with family or friends I much prefer a phone call over a text, when dating come to the door to pick me up rather than shooting me a text, and of course, with fashion. The history of the fashion show is exciting and so interesting to see how they have evolved over the past one hundred years or so. With COVID-19 changing all of our lives, it has affected the fashion show and has designers thinking if they are even an essential part anymore.

The New American Bar in Greenwich Village

The New American Bar in Greenwich Village

Does everyone have a list of restaurants they must dine at, at least once, in their phone notes?! I know it can’t just be me. Ever since I’ve been immersing myself a bit more into the restaurant scene I’ve been curating a very long list of restaurants to grab a bite to eat at, and of course will always have my go-to’s and favorites. It’s something about the New York City restaurant scene’s ambience that I know for sure I’ll never get sick of.

80s Inspired Pieces

80s Inspired Pieces

Back to a time where neutrals weren’t a thing, and having big hair was IT. Cue Lady Gaga’s new single Stupid Love, or The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights. The new songs are giving me 80s feels, and quite frankly so is the fashion world. Sparkle day wear, monochrome suiting, and over the top ruffles are all that’s on my mind right now.

A Friday Night at the MoMa

A Friday Night at the MoMa

Wow was I wrong when I thought that a Friday night at the museum would be quiet! Little did I know that the MoMa offers free admission on Fridays from 5:30 to 9:30pm. It was a bit overwhelming to visit with so many people, but I still enjoyed the art and got to see some of the pieces I’ve always wanted to see!

“Lost and Found” by Bruce Gilden Art Gallery

“Lost and Found” by Bruce Gilden Art Gallery

Downtown at Seaport there is this super funky store 10 Corse Como that I’ve been wanting to go in for forever and finally did. The store has everything from home decor to coffee table books (which I did in fact spend 45 minutes looking at) to skin care, along with beautiful clothes and accessories. The store design is so modern and cool. In the store they also have an art gallery where they have new exhibitions, and right now they have photographs that Bruce Gilden took of people in New York City in the mid 70s and 80s, along with some new shots. It’s on view until April 5th.

Something You May Not Know About Me

Something You May Not Know About Me

If you follow me on my Instagram, @ mckennaramonajennings, you may notice that amidst the style photos there are quite a few shots of interiors and exteriors. I have always had a secret love for interior and exterior design, but especially since I’ve moved to New York City and have been able to wander around, I’ve found an even greater love for it.

The Jazz Age, The Roaring Twenties, How all the Splendor Inspires Me

The Jazz Age, The Roaring Twenties, How all the Splendor Inspires Me

A period of divinity, exquisite dressing, and splendor partying through the duration of the 1920s and has left a mark on many of us one hundred years later. The younger people of the time pushed the limits outside of Victorian thinking and dived into the lifestyle of the decadent. Women were finally able to vote and were nudging themselves into the workforce, and most of all, they were testing the way women were “supposed” to dress with shorter hemlines and très chic bobbed hairstyles. Women were feeling empowered and society was booming.

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.

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.

“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.

Searching endlessly online and in stores for classic, girly, feminine dresses and have constantly be let down when I can’t find any, or find pieces but they have a pricey tag on them.

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!
