Greetings from Sunny Florida!
Between you and me, I’m actually quite amazed that I managed to make it out of snowy Boston last night (it was really looking quite bleak at the airport). Nevertheless, we took off and landed in the land of palm trees, sunshine, and no-frills.
Speaking of frills, I am a bit disappointed that I won’t be able to attend the festivities of New York Fashion Week (which officially kicked off yesterday). For one thing, I would have loved to go to the Naomi Campbell-hosted event tomorrow “Fashion for Relief,” in support of the fight against Ebola. My fellow blogger buddy, Keiko, of New York à la Keiko, even offered me tickets to the Monique Lhuillier show tonight (swoon swoon), which I heard was absolutely breathtaking, but alas – you can’t be everywhere all at the same time.
Thank goodness for live streaming and updates, which allow me to get in oodles of weekend mommy-time with my munchkin, while still keeping abreast of the latest fashion news from #MBFW.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you my favorite looks from the BCBG show yesterday – which marked the start of fashion week, and also formally illuminated my person design aspirations for the moment.
I’ve always liked BCBGMAXAZRIA, and I find their Fall 2015 collection to be absolutely divine! It’s stylish, eclectic, glamorous and luxe, with just the right touch of exoticism thrown into the mix. I heart the entire thing, and I never thought that leather, silk, fringe and wool meshed so well! The color palette very much suits my own wardrobe aesthetic (lots of greys, beige, weights, with a splash of attention-seeking maroon), and the entire look is very gamine-chic, and so completely what I would rock on the streets of downtown Manhattan.
Enjoy and happy Friday!
