Emmys 2014 Fashion

On the night of the infamous television awards, fashion was front and center.  There were dramatic gowns, short films dresses and even some very comedic elements (I’m talking to you, Lena Dunham).  While these ladies all came together from their very different television categories, the fashion trends seemed to remain consistent.  Basically, if you were dressed in anything else besides red/coral/hot pink, a metallic or white – who were you and what were you doing at the Emmys?  Long, clingy silhouettes were popular with a few fuller gowns making appearances.  See the trends below!

Summer Midi

Yesterday I attended one of my best friend’s baby showers and wore this BCBG skirt that I am basically OBSESSED with.  Although the way it is shown on the model (perfect midi length on her) was different on me since I am much shorter, I still loved it.  The pleats, the gorgeous colors and color-blocking, the sheer bottom – everything!  It moved so beautifully and it was so light, perfect for a summer event.  I paired it with a simple black cami top and nude peep-toe, sling-back heels.

SJP Fall 2014 at Nordstrom

When Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker introduced her brand new shoe line last season at Nordstrom, it was a Sex & the City/shoe lover’s dream come true.   Ms. ‘I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!’ did not disappoint in the designing department.  However, her SJP Fall 2014 collection has me gasping for air (and searching for some extra cash)!  I have to get my feet in those leather booties and semi-caged knee-high boots!  In addition to footwear, Parker also included brand new handbags.  The bags aren’t my favorite but I’m sure that’s only because the shoes completely steal the show.  See some of my favorites below and find the complete collection at Nordstrom.

Wednesday Wishlist: Fall Must-Haves

My favorite fashion season is approaching fast – yes, you guessed it, fall!  I need to gear up quickly and purchase some of these covetable items!  Cozy knit sweaters (an obvious fall staple), ripped skinnies, Chelsea boots, wide-brimmed hats, warm scarves and stackable rings are all on my must-have list.   What’s on your autumn wish list?

Altuzarra x Target

Let me ask you a question.  What’s better than the release of a new collection by one of your favorite designers?  A release of a new collection by your favorite designer… for less!  AMEN SISTER!

Coming September 14th to a Target near you (and on net-a-porter.com), Altuzarra will be releasing a fab, affordable collection with everything your closet needs this fall.  Office-appropriate separates like sharp blazers, blouses and perfectly tailored trousers make up most of the VERY reasonably priced collection with the most expensive piece coming in at $90.  But my personal favorites are the shoes – a gorgeous ankle strap heel and some to-die-for black leather ankle booties (like literally, these CANNOT be Target).  See my favorite looks below and see the full collection here!

F/W 2014 Fashion Campaigns

August has arrived and that can only mean one thing to us fashion-forward folk: fall fashion is upon us.  There will be no more sweating the days away for much longer.  It is time for coats, boots and knit layers.  However, jumping the gun and throwing all of these pieces on in the still-sweltering heat will give you heat stroke and a few looks.  So, we’ll all just sit back and wait for the cooler temps while lusting over some fall campaigns.  See below for some of my favorites including Burberry (hi,Cara), Balmain (hi again, Cara) and Givenchy (Kendall, is that you?!)
