Fuzzy Wuzzy

If you’re living on the East Coast, you know that winter is still very present. I’ve learned over the years to try and make friends with this horrible cold and dress more appropriately. Luckily, there are some cute trends out this F/W that are inspiring to me. My favorite trend that works with my personal style is the “fuzzy” sweater. Besides the warmth, the fuzzy look gives it a very cozy and angel- like feeling. I’ve seen these sweaters all over the place but the ones below are some of my personal favorites. So, this winter you can stay fashionable and warm. 🙂

Ciara looking lovely in pink 🙂 Personally, I like these types of sweaters in more pastel colors or even just a white. It adds a more innocent look to it.

Audrey always Inspires

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn

NYFW – Spring/Summer 2013

Here is a quick re-cap of my time during NYFW this past September. I had the pleasure of attending a show in the tent at Lincoln Center – Fashion Shenzhen – courtesy of my friend, Martha Luna of http://www.mdollynyc.com. The tent was packed full of celebs, fashion bloggers, photographers, editors, and more! It’s such an exhilarating feeling to be in Lincoln Center for NYFW. Everything from getting your ticket, to getting seated and wondering who the person next to you will be, to the flashing photographers just gives you a rush like no other. The scene, the ambiance, the feeling is different than anything I have ever experienced before. I just love it. 

The show opened up with the designer, Guoxin Xia of Ellasay. The entire collection was exquisite. Some of the trends that stood out to me were the crisp icy whites paired with the box-y ombre jackets, the simple combo of black and white, asymmetrical dresses, and hologram details. I found this collection to be trendy yet wear-able. The designer kept in mind the modern woman and you could tell by the easy silhouettes. I felt like I could wear almost every outfit coming down the runway. (or at least I would LOVE to)

The second show was probably one of my favorite shows I have ever been to! I absolutely loved the entire collection, including the makeup, hair, fabrics, music. I was blown away by every piece that came down the runway. Designer, Deng Hao, kept the Chinese culture in mind while designing these exquisite dresses. The details and vibrant colors blew me away. Whimsical to say the least, Deng Hao took me to a place I’ve never been to! I felt like I was in a Chinese tea garden party with the most elite. I loved every second of it.

I’m looking forward to see their next collection. I love how each designer has its own vision and it’s very clear when you see their work. Although they both have very different signature styles, they still compliment each other in a traditional way that stays close to the Chinese heritage and culture. 

My outfit- Prabal Gurung x Target Shirt, H&M skirt, Steve Madden Wedges, Vince Camuto accessories.

Here are some pictures from the show and inside Lincoln Center-

M.I.A. Versus Versace

One of the main reasons why I love fashion is because of the creativity. I was patiently waiting for the M.I.A. Versus Versace collection because I truly admire M.I.A. as an artist and was so curious as to what she would create. Versace has been quite popular in the music industry these days and I feel this collab. is so perfect. All artists have their own style, or a stylist, and M.I.A has always been an artist to watch. Her colorful, vibrant spirit always shines thru her music videos and red carpet appearances. 

I really like the collaboration with M.I.A. and Versus Verasace. It’s def. outrageous and in your face type of style, but it fits with the artist and the vintage look of Versace. The whole collection plays tribute to “bootlegging” culture and features some of the loudest prints I have ever seen! It’s fun and playful and very new-age. I can see a few of the pieces on celebrities as well as street-style fashionista’s. Some of the T-shirt dresses are really fun, I’d def. rock one to a concert. I also really like the styling of the lookbook, it’s simple and clean and lets the prints speak for themselves. (Which they do!) 

Here is some of the lookbook-  Via http://eu.versace.com/versus/mia-for-versus-the-look

Winter White Trend

One of my current Fall/Winter trend obsessions is Winter White. There is just something so chic and elegant about wearing white that I just love. I always used to think of wearing all white in the summer time (All-White Parties!) but after seeing so much of this trend on the runway and translated into winter wear, I’m starting to be a believer. 

I absolutely love color (especially in the dreary winter months) but for me, white is even more powerful than a bright color sometimes. Pair it with a really dark lip color and gold accessories and you’re all set.

Some Winter White Inspiration:

Summer Lovin’ Photo Shoot

Although it is the start of my favorite fashion season, Fall, I still am missing summer time! I decided to share a fun photo shoot I did this summer in Brooklyn, NY. The set was in DUMBO, which is an area of Brooklyn overlooking Manhattan. The beautiful bridge is right behind me and I had an amazing time soaking up the sun, the views, and most importantly the summer time! You will be missed, summer ❤

I kept my outfit flirty and fun to go with my mood of the day. H&M neon green tank tucked into my favorite mid-waisted shorts from Forever21! (such a great find) I accessorized with  colorful bangles I got from the boutique store, Steps, in NYC and bright cobalt blue nails. (Love this color, easily adds a pop of color to any outfit) Also, a gifted handmade necklace from Ghana and my mirrored blue sunnies.

Religion Clothing Pop Up Shop Event

A few days ago I attended a pop up shop event in the Lower East Side with my stylist friend, Elisha. I love finding out about new brands and this specific one started in London. We both met the designer behind Religion and got to chat with him for a little. Open bar was sponsored by Ty Ku Liqueur. The event also did a collab. with an amazing artist, The Black Soft. The combination of the dark paintings went along very well with the ambiance and the clothing. Religion is based on black, white, pops of maroon, and grey. The color scheme is simple but the details are impeccable.

Some pictures of my favorite items from the pop-up shop, the amazing artwork, and a taxi poster I found outside (that I thought was so fun!) :
