Thursday started off with a bang! Although I am so ready for Fall to get here, I do love seeing what next season has in store. And making that all important 'spring purchase list' well in advance. Here are my favorites from day 1.
GOOD Morning, Lovelies!! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!! Even though it's been grossly humid and hot here the last few days, it's been great to get out and see friends and catch up with everyone. But boy and I ready for Fall!
Speaking of Fall - my wish list just keeps getting longer and longer. There is just so much I want to add to my closet. Case in point: Gigi New York. Y'all know how I feel about monograms (it's an obsession, like for serious), so I get exceed when I find brands who get us initial obsessed. I have been a fan of Gigi New York for a while and find their pieces so exquisite and lovely. And not to mention they are VERY well made and their price point is just great. I have had a 'wish list' from their site for a while and just added a few more fall pieces to it. This Parker satchel in Wine is my new fall bag. It's just perfection!
With Fashion week in full force, I thought it was only fitting to share with you a few of my favorite fashion-related follows for this week. Enjoy! xx
Style.com For all write ups on all the fashion shows this week, Style.com has you covered. They recap every show and give you pictures of the runway looks and descriptions of what each collection was inspired by and details on clothing concepts and design. It is my go-to for anything fashion related! Man Repeller Leandra Medine is quite possibly the most genius person on the planet. She stared her blog years ago as a way for women to feel OK and empowered by what they wanted to wear. Not worry about what guys would think, to wear whatever the hell you wanted to and screw guys opinions. She is a trailblazer in the blogging community and her humor and satire are like none other. Her puns are so on point and clever it makes you feel like you wish for just an ounce of her creativity! She is definitely at the top of my list and should be at yours too! WhoWhatWear Look to WWW as your style and shopping guide. With several daily posts to check out, you always have something to read and use for inspiration. Their instagram page is full of looks and trends for you to drool over as well. DKNY PR GIRL Aliza Licht gives you a behind the scenes look at what goes on in the world of Donna Karan. Not only is she a rockstar PR gal, she has impeccable taste and is ALWAYS dressed to the nines! I mean, how can you not when most of your closet is Donna Karan? She just gets it right every time and gives me major wardrobe envy. And she's also hysterically funny and her posts are always something worth looking forward to. Eva Chen You may have seen people doing poses of their shoes, bags and accessories in the back of cabs or cars on your instagram feed over the past year or so. And they may quote it as the 'eva pose.' You can thank Editor of Lucky Magazine's Eva Chen for that genius instagram obsession. Not only does she showcase her fabulous bags and shoes just about everyday, she also gives you a behind the scenes look at Lucky as well and her personal style and travels. She's one of those girls you just know you would have so much to chat about. She attends all the great shows and her videos and pictures are just gorgeous.
A few months ago, the fabulous team at Bow & Drape reached out to me to give their upcoming site a whirl before it went live. And how could I not say yes? Any time one gets to design their own clothing pieces or accessories it's a no-brainer to jump on it! Once you create an account, you can jump in and start designing. Right now the design options are a sweatshirt, crew neck t-shirt, crop turtleneck, denim jacket, long sleeved t-shirt and ball cap. You can add appliques, bows, beading and embroidery in any design or fashion your little heart desires. I could spend hours just creating different garments and designs. And the best part? It's your design - a one of a kind piece just for you! Their price points are so reasonable and affordable, it's almost crazy not to create and order your personal piece. A little bit about Bow & Drape: Our products are built with a little extra sparkle. They aren't mass-produced, and they are anything but basic. That's because they are designed by our customers. Our customers are inventive, they are a little bit cheeky, and they know who they are. Their personality is built into every item Bow & Drape finishes to-order in the USA. And that's what makes our products different. We let you make a statement. Literally or figuratively.
With Fashion Week buzzing in the air, what better time to work on your own creativity and design? Let Bow & Drape kick start your design career! Here are a few designs that others have created.
