Nothing is lovelier then spending a crisp fall day strolling in Brooklyn. The brownstones and tree lined streets with their changing colors and dappled sunlight so puts one in the mood to shop for Christmas. I did a bit of this and picked up few things for myself as well. I will be vlogging about this in the not too distant future.

Today I am sharing with you what I wore for this excursion. You have seen this top before in my NYFW vlog. When I wore it to NYFW I paired it with a pleated metallic skirt and suede mules for a very dressed up look. Here, I am dressing it down with distressed jeans and low heeled ankle boots. The necklaces which I layered together are from J Crew and COS. Both the top and the jeans are from H&M and the boots which you may have seen on my What I wore to Paris Fashion Week post are from Guess.

Don’t you love when clothes can do double duty? From chic fashion week events to running errands you can’t go wrong with a ruffle top.

Bienvenue! In todays Lookbook Friday we are looking at an emerging designer who has had quite the metric rise with his graduate collection winning the Dries Van Norten Award for best collection which was then immediately followed by winning the Grand Prix Award. Both awards which were won shortly after Christian had completed his schooling helped cement his career with his collections being picked up by multiple prestigious stores in Paris, London and Tokyo. Today his collections are sold world wide at higher end shops and boutiques such as Le Bon Marche, Colette, and Tomorrow Land.

Known for creating luxurious knits in eye catching prints featuring rich saturated colors and bold graphical prints it should be no surprise that he also won the International Woolmark Prize in 2013.

the lineup for fall is a celebratory accomplishment of beauty and grace.

And the collection for 2017 is shining example of what this illustrious designer is known for. With it’s artful draping, exquisite palette and it’s assortment of playful prints raging from striking stripes to geometric botanicals to a more refined floral print the lineup for fall is a celebratory accomplishment of beauty and grace.  Be sure to check out what they currently have available  ChristianWijnants.com you will not be disappointed. Oh I so have my eye on that plaid coat. Next year I am going to have my coat picked out before I head to Paris! And I think I recognize this model, I shot her in Paris you check that out in this post, but she now has blonde hair!

Vlogmas 2017 #1 oculus world trade center nyc

Blogging, Fashion, Life, Life-Style, vlogmas - alimackin@gmail.com - December 4, 2017

It is now officially the holiday season. Time to get out and about and see the festivities. It is cold and brisk but I am loving it. All we need is a wee bit of snow and I will be in full holiday season mode. Last week my friend Angela and I headed to the Oculus neither of us had been there so it was a no brainer. I did some Christmas shopping which I will share with you next week in a shopping haul.

So come along and if you are ever in New York be sure to check out the Oculus. And go during the week in the middle of the day like we did, it is much less crowded!

Fashion - alimackin@gmail.com - December 1, 2017

Today we are looking at Marni’s resort collection for 2018. Though I would describe this collation more as an early spring

Today we are looking at Marni’s resort collection for 2018. Though I would describe this collation more as an early spring/late winter collection. With it’s mid-weight over coats, long hemlines and fur wraps these are garments intended for the in-between weather that early spring is know for. You will also see lots of pattern mixing, and a happy blend of florals, graphics and polkadots.

Yes, another installment of Paris Fashion Week street style. This was shot outside the Rick Owens show. This was the last show I shot. I went to the Under Cover show but shot that on my vlogging camera. I started to lose the light toward the end when I was shooting after the show let out. But there was enough light so all was well and then I stuck around and waited for the sun to go down so I could seer the tower all lit up. Did I mention I love Paris?

In todays Lookbook Friday we are looking at up and coming brand Cheng.  I am sharing the SSS2017 collection with you as I also wanted to share a behind the scenes video. I love watching what goes on behind a shoot. When I was in design school I use to watch ANTM for this exact reason. I enjoyed seeing the shoots in action and then getting to see the finale images and how dramatic they would turn out. Some may think standing around set can be boring, personally though I have never found it boring.

with it’s fabulous youth quake edge and dramatic flourishes it should be no surprise it is a favorite of Lady Ga Ga

But yes, seeing a bunch people standing around and a model jumping about on big piece of paper may not appear to be the most thrilling of endeavors, but when you see the still photographs and the drama that is captured in the imagery it is all worth it. And on a side note, I am about 99.9% sure I have been in this studio. When I watched the video I did a double take and had to rewind and look closer. But I am fairly certain I have been in this exact studio.

Hope you enjoy this lookbook with it’s fabulous youth quake edge and dramatic flourishes it should be no surprise it is a favorite of Lady Ga Ga.

As you can see more street style from Paris Fashion Week. Yes, I took a lot of photos—hundreds and may even be over a thousand. Which is quite a bit to edit, and I am going to be opening Christmas presents before they are all posted. Well, maybe more like Thanksgiving.

These we shot outside the Lemarie show I believe, though it is all starting to run together in my head. But I did shoot outside the Lemarie show as well as Aalto and Rick Owens. There were so many well clad Parisians to shoot, the biggest problem was getting around all the photogs. Not the easiest of feats sometimes but I must most of them are quite polite. I hope enjoy this round and needless to say—yes, there is more to come.
