Kate Spade Fall 2014

I am a self-proclaimed girly-girl.  I love everything pink, sparkly and ultra-feminine.  The Kate Spade fall 2014 collection is basically my dream come true in clothing form.  Deborah Lloyd’s creations included sparkle embellishments (and those glittery heels!! omg!!), leopard coats and feathers galore.  I truly cannot pick a favorite look from this collection.

This collection was not lacking any warmth either!  Designers all seemed to jump on the fur and fuzzy bandwagon and this collection from Kate Spade is no different with furry bags, hats and scarves.   Stay warm and cozy and look like a totally chic modern-day Audrey Hepburn?  Don’t mind if I do!

Peter Som Fall 2014

Just wondering, will there be ANY disappointing shows this Fashion Week?  Because so far, everything has been beautiful and I want everything from the fall collections in my closet!  Peter Som is no different.  With his use of leopard, leather and possible inspiration from Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” Som sent gorgeous day and night, casual and dressy looks down the runway in a perfectly flowing show (and some perfectly flowing feathers).

The rich blue and orange hues mixed with patterns meshed just right with simple high and low boots.  The skirts flared in flirty ways, the gowns swayed with fluid ease and the coats were tailored to perfection.  However, it was the bits of animal print that tugged at my heart strings.  I am a leopard lover and I need each and every piece that featured the print!

My New Babies!

Just wanted to share my new addition to my shades collection.  These leopard, cat-eye Stella McCartney sunglasses are just as fab on as they are in their case.  I literally want to wear them everywhere – including indoors as I enjoy the rest of my relaxing weekend.

So, you know that one item that can instantly change an outfit?  It can take you from “meh” to “oh, look at her!”  It totally transforms a look and adds immediate sass and personality.  You’re probably thinking of a gorgeous statement necklace, a pair of red-hot heels or a luxurious bag.  But, I bet you weren’t thinking about a pair of sunglasses – leopard sunglasses, in fact.  If you weren’t thinking about them before you will now!  Just picture it : leopard (in appropriate amounts) = fierceness.  And sunnies give that factor of mystery and Hollywood all in one.  Add all of that up and you have an outfit-maker, my friend!  Just make sure you hold your head high when you strut your stuff with these adorning your face.  Better be sure to also open your eyes while that head is held high to make sure there IS sun out.  Nothing is more strange and “ugh, honestly the sunglasses at night thing is so over” than wearing sunnies sans the actual sun.

Spotty Trend

Most trends come and go with each new season.  However, the animal print trend is one that has had lasting stamina through a few seasons now.  It’s a versatile print that can be dressed up or down.  My favorite is leopard.  You can wear it with jeans or a skirt and the leopard print can be worn on top, bottom, middle or as a layer.  I rummaged through my closet to find my favorite leopard clothes that I made into a few outfit ideas for you.  See below and leave comments please! 🙂
