Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2014

What do you get when you mix a cow-girl and a whole lot of skin?  You get the Fall collection from Cushnie et Ochs.  With low dips, high slits and exposed skin via lots of lace, let’s just say if your goal is to stay warm come next fall, you should probably stay away from this collection… or just buy a huge cozy jacket to wear over these exposed outfits.  Maybe they were going for a more Southern-weather climate (the cowboy hats?  Not sure about those..)?

I am basically in love with the great flared out shorter dresses that sauntered down the runway.  The jumpsuits, separates and longer gowns could be worn by a huge assortment of women – from the business woman to the red-carpet celebrity.  The colors stayed mostly on the dark side of things, except for the pop of  citrusy neon lime.  This whole collection encompasses true Cushnie et Ochs esthetic with cut-outs and ultra sexy looks.

Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2014

Rebecca Minkoff mixed soft and feminine with a bit of edge this season.  Think blush pink mixed with a little leather, even a bit of metallic and throw on a beanie and some great booties to face the cold winter weather.  Minkoff’s models strutted down the runway in oversize menswear-inspired clothing and dark vampy lips (so happy that trend is not going anywhere!).

This collection was not lacking the very popular fur trend this season.  Minkoff wrapped fur scarves around models necks while the rest of the outfits were quite simple – light and airy but with clean pinstripes.  The whole collection encompassed the true New York fashion girl and I can’t wait to get my hands on this collection – especially that cream, leather trimmed skirt.
