There were so many gorgeous looks on the red carpet on Sunday but only a few made my list of “Top 5 Favorite Looks”
Let’s us bow our heads for a moment, in remembrance of all the wonder that came out of NYC Fashion Week this past September. The runways were bursting with pastels, florals, and sheer ensembles, enough to make any fashionista gasp with unyielding desire. Spring fashion has always been my favorite and for good reason. One particular spring trend which I am avid fan of, is none other than the reoccurring incorporation of the color blush. S/S 14′ RTW runways such as Stella McCartney, Burberry Prorsum, and Chloe were all seen integrating the color somehow into their collections. The color is perfect for spring with it’s ease and effortless femininity. Despite being an internal girly-girl, I usually gravitate towards basics and rarely wear bright colors such as pink. But since the color can easily fade into the neutral category, I find myself growing more fond of it each and every day. With that said, it;s time to ditch the oppressive shades of black and gray, and begin sporting the ladylike colors of blush and pink.
As we get further into spring, and the temps begin to rise, I find myself gravitating more towards “pretty” clothing. As you can see from my “April Wish-List” below; there’s not a single dark color in sight. In fact, the majority of the collection is entirely in pastels. For my “April Wish-List”, I decided to go with floral’s and light colors because to me, that’s the whole representation of spring. One of my favorite items in the collection is this Emporio Armani structured tote, which I chose in turquoise. I recently took a new job as an e-commerce assistant at a luxury lingerie boutique and therefore need a bag which will fit everything from my i-Pad to my lipstick. That, apart from the totally chic design and color, was why I chose the tote. Everything pretty much speaks for itself. When I first saw this floral, Oscar de la Renta dress, I’ll admit I was a little afraid. I’m not exactly one for girly prints but the more I glanced at the dress; the more I felt …
One of my favorite trends to look forward to this spring is none other than the wide-leg trouser. As I predicted a few weeks ago, this trend was sure to be huge come spring 2014, and sure enough; they were seen everywhere during Paris Fashion Week. The trend is a slight throwback to old Hollywood glamour. Think Katherine Hepburn meets Veronica Lake. To celebrate this particular trend, I’ve decided to compile three looks which incorporates the trend altogether. Which is your favorite?
One spring’s hottest trends is filled with structured silhouettes and graphic prints. Seen all over spring runways such 3.1 Phillip Lim, Erdem, Balenciaga, and Prabal Gurung, this trend is extraterrestrial chic!

Even though winter has just begun, I’ve got autumn on my mind. As much as I adore spring, I can’t help but love fall even more. One reason in particular is the intense amount of fashion that goes hand in hand with the season. I’ll admit that despite my complete love for floral dresses and pastel hues, there’s nothing I love more than the humdrum simplicity of basic silhouettes and muted colors which are so ever present come fall. Just glancing at the many Pre-Fall 2014 collections gets me excited for fall and makes we want it to arrive sooner. Bit since we have precisely 7 more months to go until the arrival of September, I decided to compile a list of some the best Pre-Fall looks to satisfy me until then. Enjoy!
