Elie Tahari SS13 Presentation

Stepping into the Elie Tahari was like going back to Palm Springs during the 1950's. Vibrant, rich hues mixed with modern sophistication is what Tahari is all about come Spring. Color blocking with colors like Tangy Melon, Sea Palm and Flamingo Pink Coral will allow you to have a little fun with your outfits choices this spring. And let's not forget the gorgeous fabrics and textiles used for this collection. Hello cashmere, suede, sequins and leather! Tonal looks were also prevalent, and I'm starting to really like this trend. Matchy Matchy is back in style! In previous collections, Tahari has been known for using unique detailing to sass up his designs, and this collection is no different. Exposed zippers, contrast lining, laser cut pockets, and neon trim are back for another season and hotter than ever. My favorite look of the presentation was the tangy melon pants and tank. Hello summer afternoon cocktail party!!

I hope you have lots of parties on your dance card for Spring! With all the fabulous options from Elie Tahari's new collection, you will be dying to find somewhere to show off these unique and fun looks. Start planning now!

Toms Spring Preview

Starting with one style of shoe to what is now a fabulous collection, Toms shoes has a style for every type of fashionista. I had the fabulous opportunity ( Thanks IHH! ) to attend their Holiday Preview and check out the new styles and color ways for the Holidays. And let me tell you, there are some designs you will be DYING to get your hands on! Polka dots, multi-glitter, crochet, and twill are just a few of the fabulous creations coming this holiday season. The super comfy and super chic Desert Wedge will come in a gorgeous grey wool for fall, and I definitely have my sights set on getting those babies! And for the men in our lives, they have a few new boot styles, some classic styles with some twists (Hello flanned and fleece lined), as well as two styles designed for Movember, a great platform that brings awareness to mens health. Ladies, these same two styles are available to us as well. Its a way for us to support Movember without having to grow a mustache, which is WAY more fashionable! 

A few new eyewear options are also available this fall, and I will be honest, it's going to be tough to choose just one pair!!! Check out the pictures below and see for yourself! 

After viewing the collections, we were asked to create our own eye chart. What a fun idea, right? There were several stencil options to choose from, and I chose "I Love What I See." What a great reminder to be happy with who you are and not try to be someone else.  

With the addition on some great styles, Toms has proven it is here to stay. So hurry on over to Toms website and pick up some fun new styles, and don't forget, these are perfect holiday gifts for your loved ones! 

A few options for making our own eye chart. Such a cute idea

Carmen Marc Valvo SS13 Runway Show

If I could wear a gorgeous gown to work everyday, Carmen Marc Valvo would be at the top of my shopping list. I was simply in awe of his SS 2013 collection. Gorgeous fabrics, colors, textures, and designs, that i couldn't take my eyes off of one look to see the next! This collection had sort of an asian samurai theme. with lace being the main fabric used on just about every look. Folded silk draped the shoulders and was tied at the waist with a black belt. Patterns inspired by embroideries and kimonos were mixed with vintage fabrications. The whole collection was stunning and his attention to detail and background is second to none! My favorites of the evening? This gorgeous cobalt (still trending for spring) silk origami folded one shoulder cocktail dress. I have gone back to this picture numerous times, its just so elegant and stunning. 

Swimsuits were also added to this collection, and the one piece is, yet again, making a comeback. With lower lines on the legs and deeper v's on the chest, these suits are made to be seen. This is the ultimate in swim luxury, and make me want to hop on a yacht in St. Tropez (excuse me while I day dream). 

And as if this runway collection wasn't enough to sink your teeth into, Carmen will launch the 'Carmen Marc Valvo Capsule' collection on Novemeber 2nd with HSN! WHAT?? This collection, which will be exclusive to HSN, will feature evening knits, cardigans, shrugs, pants, bandage skirts, and a cocktail dress.  I mean, how amazing will it be to have more accessible options from this fabulous designer? I know I will be heading to come November 2nd. 

AND to top it off, Carmen Marc Valvo will be launching his own shoe line! EEK!
