Before I Forget

The fashion flock is in London and off to Milan tonight, but I didn’t want to overlook the Altuzarra show. It was absolutely gorgeous and filled with wearable clothes. A true spring/summer collection– I love the layers, men’s shirts, and lean, mid-calf length skirts that moved so beautifully when the models walked.

At A.P.C.

I spied these at A.P.C. in Soho yesterday. Many of the girls in the shop were wearing them and they looked very cute.

Walk the talk

My favorite navy Givenchy sandals that I wear with jeans. I think I like them now more than when I bought them almost two years ago.

Looks

Singing the blues

Isabel Marant, Givenchy, Balenciaga in blue

I may love white after Labor Day, and I will always be a devotee of grey, but navy, usually a spring/summer neutral, looks fresh right now.  Any medium to midnight shade of blue will do.

Shearling, bomber, Antigona duffel, skirt, booties, sweater, Pandora bag, sneakers.

It’s in the details

White, black, grey, and navy may be my sartorial preferences, but in my home, I love color. However, it’s the details that I appreciate the most. Piping and scalloped edges make me very happy.

Show Restraint

Fashion week in NY is on it’s last day and this season I made a pledge to not chronicle every moment. My intention was to wait until the final finale to post a NYFW wrap-up. But the Narciso Rodriguez show was so beautiful, I decided not to wait.

So without further ado, my favorite looks from this simple, pretty and sexy collection.

Runway vs. Reality

During the FW13 shows I fell hard for a Theyskens’ Theory skirt left. It topped my fall wish list and I kept an eye out for it online. My dream skirt right just arrived and it’s a far cry from what I had seen on the runway. More of a pale blue than grey, and an A-line shape. The fabric reminds me of my bedspread when I was six– pretty, but not what I was expecting.

What happened? This is not the first time I have talked about what gets lost in production and the reason I no longer order from trunk shows. Disappointing to say the least.

It’s a 10!

I just picked up this hair volumizer and love it! Smells okay too.

I’m Hooked! cont.

A few weeks ago I posted on my love affair with crocheted capes. As you can imagine, my heart skipped a beat when I saw these looks from The Row show yesterday. I have a few of their clean-lined pieces, but have not bought anything in a while. I certainly will next spring. I like the ‘woman’ they were inspired by.

Uh oh, the return of the logo

I’m feeling logo-mania in the ether. The Louis Vuitton Parnassea bag with the enormous LV is everywhere and Alexander Wang used his name as the pattern on many of the pieces in his show yesterday.
