Catching The Bright Light Of Silver

I know I’m not the only one that needs a touch of lightness in their life these days. It was a hard week for half of America, and I am just beginning to be able to wrap my head around it. Reading, talking to friends, and listening to a lot of music has helped. What also helped was perusing street style pics, and catching all the bright light that silver reflects.

Naomie Harris at the Hollywood Film Awards, where she took home the Hollywood Breakout Actress award, looked positively aglow in her Gucci silver lame pantsuit. What also caught my eye were all the silver skirts (both sequin and lame) worn during the day with a casual bent to them. Whether paired with Converse suede sneakers, oxfords, mid-sized heels or to the knee boots, all looked smashing! And, who doesn’t love a silver leather bomber jacket with red and black knit trim detailing. When paired with red it read like a breath of fresh air!

Fall Inspiration

Gucci Suit & Blouse

Louis Vuitton

Even if I could I wouldn’t give up one day of summer. I adore it: the long hours of sunlight, the midday heat, balmy nights, outdoor concerts, beach days…… I could go on and on but I’d bet many of you feel the same way.

All that being said I am excited about fall and all the new fashion looks ahead of me. This past Sunday’s New York Times Style Magazine’s fall fashion issue provided plenty of style inspiration starting with Binx Walton spread by photographer….. The dichotomy of the two looks above, one pure romance — Gucci’s floral suit and pussy bow blouse, and the other chic and edgy– Louis Vuitton cheetah coat, blouse and skirt, will dress you for various moods.

ValentinoValentino dress, and Repossi rings.

Dolce & GabannaAkris turtleneck, Dolce & Gabbana skirt, and Veronika Borchers for Pearl Collective earrings.

Christian Dior & Max MaraChristian Dior shirt dress, Max Mara strapless dress and sweater, and Comme des Garcons vintage shoes.

When A Second Chance Can Make A First Impression.

One of my favorite times of the year is here – sale season. And, as luck would have it, there are some amazingly good ones going on, which makes now the perfect time to grab up those adored pieces that previously weren’t within your budgets grasp. It’s also the ideal time to add a few classic designer pieces to your mix, even if it’s just one.

Trolling (and window shopping) through the sales, I found many items I coveted (and dreamt about) back when they made their debut on the runway…. long before they hit the stores. Odds are, you too will easily find a few favorites you let slip through your fingers. Though trying to whittle it down to one purchase is a whole other story — it is like having a full season of unwatched Breaking Bad episodes, and attempting to watch just one. Nearly impossible!

Trend Report — Bohemian Rhapsody

Dries Van Noten Spring 2015Gucci Spring 2015Louis Vuitton Spring 2015

The 70’s, they’ve been back for a while. Actually, it’s the 70’s with a 21st century twist for spring 2015. Everything we loved about fashion then — fringe, a-line skirts, stacked heels, flared legs and high waists, with a up-to-date, clean twist. This version of the bohemian women is simpler, cooler, never over done.  She pairs her flares and flowy dresses with current, modern accessories.

Here are some of my favorite pieces to get your boho chic groove on. So if you’ve got a yen for the seventies, a secret hankering to be a Charlie’s Angel, and have yet to meet a platform you didn’t adore, this is your season! Enjoy!

Fall 2014 Biggest Trends

Sonia RykielChloe

Knits: whether head to toe, boyfriend size sweaters, or big chunky sweaters with uber wide turtlenecks, this is the year to invest in cozy, comfortable ultra modern knits.


Fur: Mixed with leather, colored, shearling, real or fake (be kind, wear fake), fur was everywhere on the runways. It can be a big investment, but believe me this trend will be around for quite some time. (Gucci & Sacai)

Louis VuittonSaint Laurent

Swinging Sixties: Fall’s retro trend emerged from the catwalks of Paris — Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent and Valentino all imparted new life into the sixties dollybird dresses. Italy was in the vibe too, displaying Peacoats, full mini’s and ankle cropped pants.

CelineChristopher Kane

Slouchy Pants: Skinny pants aren’t going anywhere soon, but there’s a new relative in town. A more relaxed, roomier pant with a fresh new look yet still just as chic. (Celine & Christopher Kane)

Dries Van NotenPeter Pilatto

Pop Art: Prints aren’t going anywhere this fall, and you certainly can’t miss them. In fact, they might have you doing double takes. One might even frame them as Pop Art on your walls?? (Dries Van Noten)

Haider AckermanDVF

Dresses Over Pants: Speaking of not going anywhere. The dress over pants look has decided to stick around. I love how fall textures and fabrics give it a whole new vibe. I’m in love with this Haider Ackermann look.


Spiced Up Evening Wear: Leave it to designers such as Givenchy, Valentino and Mary Katrantzou to add a little (or a lot) of zest, spice and humor to evening wear. It’s nice to see evening wear that doesn’t all look the same. I wonder how many of thee beauties will make it to the red carpet? Also, look for lots of sheer evening wear this fall.

Finishing Up With Resort 2015

Gucci Resort 2015Gucci Resort 2015 4

Gucci Resort 2015 5Gucci Resort 2015

Summer’s finally here. But, Pre-Fall 2014  collections are entering the stores and are favorite online e-commerce sites, and the curtains just closed on Resort 2015. Needless to say there are times when following fashion can be a little like minor time traveling. Before we get too far away from the Resort 2015 collections to concentrate on the present and near future (Fall 2014); I’d like to present a brief look at another of my favorite Resort collections — Gucci (see entire collection here), and a few of my other fav Resort looks.

Frida Giannini’s (Gucci Designer) choice of  floral prints (partnering with the artist Kris Knight) that feature plants which historically women have used to ” to seduce, command power over men, and which otherwise provide protection” goes a long way in capturing the feel of  the collection. She elaborated on that inspiration in her press release, “I went beyond the flower box and picked botanicals that either blossomed at night, dawn, or dusk, but also chose plants that have strong roots for adaptability, persistence, and resistance in harsh environments,”

Here are more of my favorite Resort 2015 looks.

Where’s My Glass Slipper?

We might all have different versions of the dress, the setting and the ambiance, but deep down every girl has envisioned their Cinderella moment. Walking the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival just might be it for me (a girl can dream can’t she).

This year there were two belles of the ball: Nicole Kidman (no surprise), promoting her movie Grace of Monaco, bedazzled in Armani Prive, a white delightful Altuzarra and a body hugging Alexander McQueen; Blake Lively, L’Oreal Paris’ international spokesperson, was equally stunning in a sleek burgundy Gucci, a short embellished Giambattista Valli mini, and the dress everyone is talking about – a black and white sublime Gucci Premiere.

We can’t forget Naomi Watts, looking gorgeous in a light blue cascade of chiffon Marchesa gown, and Nadja Auermann, striking in a flower print strapless tea length Dolce & Gabbana dress that highlights the longest legs in the business.

Cannes Film Festival continues till May 25th, so we will see a lot more star wattage and dazzling gowns!
