I've been out of it in terms of fashion week this fall but I get myself together enough to take in some of the sights. I love some of the looks I found here, a smattering of outfits from Paris fashion week thanks to Garance Dore and Scott Schuman. An all out good job done on all fronts.
It's that time of your again. People from NYC to Paris are adding a little fashion pep to their step by sporting some of the most fabulous ensembles out there. I appreciate that, especially since the summer is winding down and I am starting to get excited about sweaters, coats, boots and all the other fashion elements that scream Fall. So here's to creativity, to cutting edge and to bringing your best self out for Fall.
It's been a while since I have been moved by a fashion moment, but I am quickly reminded of the value of fashion, the power it possesses, when I learned about a new boutique that caters to "real size" women. Given that the majority of women do not fall into the very slim (for lack of a better term) margins of the models we see walking the runways, it is refreshing to find opportunities for fuller figured women to have access to stylish, modern clothing.
Curvaceous K is a New York City store recently opened by Kathy Sanchez, the visionary behind building a space where women, sizes 14 and above, can find fashionable clothing to fit many lifestyles. With a clear, critical eye, she selects some really lively pieces that can stand alone or can be integrated into an already fabulous wardrobe. Check out Kathy's store; it's worth it!
Its spring, almost. And I am obsessed with small, beautiful, simple jewels that adorn so elegantly. Don't get me wrong, I still appreciate the chunky, leaden pieces that serve as a statement and a half. But there is something about subtlety that is making me smile. That, and the sunshine, and the many gifts in my life.
Some amazing moments from the runways of NYFW. These pieces are elegant and glamorous while being wearable and practical. There is an element of user-ability that I find refreshing. Each and every piece seems to scream professional, aesthetically thoughtful, dynamic woman whose is confident.
The color combinations, the contrasts, the textures, the layers... J. Crew has done it yet again. With the help of incredibly styling and that amazing berry lip add sass and sophistication to the company's Fall/Winter line. I am particularly in love with the sweaters and their intricate patterns. So many beautiful looks, so little time.
