Dior Addict Lip Gloss – Teaser

After spending the weekend in New York City, scowering the makeup counter at the Macy’s at Tyson’s Corner in McLean, and recieveing a Dior lip gloss and nail polish set from my Aunt on Christmas Eve; all I can think of is what luxury brand lipstick I’ll invest in next, and after watching the Dior Addict Lip Gloss Spring 2014 commercial teaser, I think my next gloss may just be Dior Addict.

Fuzziness Fury

“The show must go on!” The memo today at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, after like 3 billion feet of snow touched down at New York City last night. In honor of the most recent blizzards and chills, pretty much all across the East coast and in the Midwest, (Chicago is now colder than both the North Pole and Antarctica); Calvin Klein Creative Director, Francisco Costa, brings us with a capsule collection filled with all things fuzzy. As skirts and dresses become knitted. A trench coat and boots get embellished with calf skin. In shades of: black, white, and grey throughout the beginning of the collection. While the end mainly focuses on a more artistic like approach. Adding elements of tweed, and many rich and bright hues knitted together, very similar to that same artistic feel seen at Calvin Klein’s Spring collection, back in September. Fashion Blogger, Byran Boy may just be right when it comes to the best hue in the collection: a rich Olive. So whatever Winter chill may be on it’s way, for next Fall, at least Francisco Costa has provided us with the knits and tweeds to keep us perfectly warm, in a fuzziness fury.

Simply Sheer & Sheen

Narciso Rodriguez is well-known for his simple, yet functional designs, making him one of the biggest names in fashion to this day. Instead of fine, architectural lines and tailored suits, Rodriguez decides to try something new for his Fall collection, presented last night in New York City: Sheer and Sheen. As Rodriguez’ collection consists of flowing, kind of Spring like, dresses in silk and sheer fabrics, with architectural lines, mixing stripes and sheer fabrics, together, with fabrics like polyester and silk; not exposing anything too body conscious. In the end, shimmer and sheen get put into the fuctional and perfectly wearable collection.

Hitting the Slopes in the City – Tommy Hilfiger Style

In the mists of Skyscrapers, in a snowy New York City, comes what appears to be a Vermont ski resort with Tommy Hilfiger models, in all things Preppy and Outdoorsy to beat those cold January days, walking on the wooden platforms. Making me reminiscence those days when I was hitting the slopes at Ski Liberty, Alphendorf in Austria, (where I actually learned how to ski), & in Canaan Valley, West Virginia. A Winter Wonderland, Tommy Hilfiger style – indeed!

Jason Wu is most definitely a fashion genius!!!!

I have always seemed to be fond of Rag & Bone’s Fall collections, and Friday’s collection was most definitely no exception. This Fall, Rag & Bone girl takes a hike in style. With her olive checkered print trench, red boots, feathered handbag, and striped blazer; she’s also just as ready to hit the streets of Manhattan.

A mix of more than a 1,000 textures of fabric, prints of many kinds being combined, and a pop of my favorite hue, (especially in honor of Valentine’s Day), Red. A flawless Helmut Lang collection is born.

Very vibrant tribal prints, plaids, and swirls dared to leave us all a lasting impression, Friday, at Suno.

Reminding me of Friday’s Helmut Lang collection, Prabal Gurung also seems to mix many different textures and prints together, seen at his show, Saturday afternoon. The only difference: Gurung incorporates tribal prints, Luxurious fabrics (thinking on the line of silk and feathers), more Dramatic and Vibrant hues, (aka some of my favorites, Navy and Tangerine), and bangled pumps, which are all that wearable on the beaches of Thailand as they would be for an evening cocktail on a Winter’s night in New York City.

Jill Stuart gives her signature feminine staples, a more Punk feel. When the Classic LBD and panty hose get bedazzled, a Furred red trench layers a sleeveless leather LBD, and a brown striped fur jacket and a Grapefruit knit sweater get edgy with baggy leather pants and wedges. Making me thank Stuart for the perfect inspiration to give my feminine wardrobe a little bit of a dramatic edge.

The most notable Project Runway alum, Christian Siriano, gives 1940s silhouettes a more modern twist; with futuristic inspired prints, rich hues, and a wonderful mix of textures.
