NYFW is officially a wrap and I am officially wiped out. Of course I would do it all again in a heart beat. Next up will be my NYFW video featuring everything I got up to. In the mean time here is one of my looks that I wore to NYFW. I ran into Miki of Miki a La Mode as I usually do on both sides of the pond, and I just had to get a snap with her! She has such impeccable style it was an honor to pose with her.
I had to pinch my self with this sale. Seriously, I could not believe it, but the designer label discount website 260 in collaboration with A.L.C were having a flash sale where all the A.L.C. items on the 260 site were $35. No, I am not making this up. I whipped out the plastic and immediately pulled up the 260 site.
Well the holiday season is firmly behind us, and though it is kind of sad to see it go with all the decorations put away until next year, I do not have much time to lament as NYFW comes up quickly and starts about a month after New Years Day. I will be taking it easy this Fashion Week as I am still not feeling %100 since being sick during the holidays, but I will be attending for a few days. In today’s post I am sharing a few snaps from SS 2024 street style, these are just a few and there will be more to come as well the photos I shot in Paris.
The party frock,—that illustrious festive garment every well heeled fashionista has in her closet, has always held a special sense of glamour. From grand balls of centuries past, to the roaring twenties, to modern day cocktail parties—the party frock enables the wearer to transcend her ordinary life and feel special, emboldened, and dare I say like a star—even, if just for an evening. And the holidays are the time of the year to step out like a celeb. With its evening soirees, candlelit dinners and festive parties, it is the perfect excuse to buy something so not practical
Well here it is, my Paris Fashion Week video. It is quite a long one but I did a lot. Met lots of fun fashionistas, went to shows, shopped, and spent time with my family. It was a great trip. Paris has my heart for sure.
We are about three months away from the next Fashion Week if you can believe that one. The holidays are more or less upon us and then on the heel of his comes the shows for NYFW F/W 2024. I kind of can’t wrap my brain around this, but such is the life of a busy fashionista. This look is from day one of fashion week for me. I have to admit I did not put a lot of planning into it, most of the pieces I already owned.
Well it’s done, Fashion Month is over and I am state side again after being in Paris for two weeks. As you can imagine I have been quite busy and I am exhausted. My return flight took sixteen hours (all in) due do bad weather in New York and delays. But it was worth it, Paris was wonderful as usual.
Today I am interviewing local NYC designer Samantha of Samatha Siu. We had a lively and informative chat. It was wonderful to learn about Samantha and her journey. And after the interview we went to some of Sam’s favorite places in New York from gift shops, to one of her favorite lunch spots to a super chic boutique where she bought the dress she is wearing. Such a fun day. S0 pull up a seat and please join us!
Summer is coming to a close and I have to say I am looking forward to fall. We had ups and downs this summer, with some hot days, and a lot of humidity. But also some cooler days. August has been unseasonably cooler than usual, and you can feel a bit of fall in the air. I can not believe it is literally two weeks away from NYFW. Needless to say I am starting to get super busy. But todays video is from earlier in the summer when I was less busy. It is quick one, but captures the summer vibes…
Can you believe it is the last month of summer? It flew by for sure. We were lucky in New York in that it did get that hot, though we had some mega humidity with levels hovering between 78-86%, just crazy. On days like this I need something super comfy and cool—like this dress.
