Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2014

Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2014 | New York Fashion Week

Menswear was a key inspiration at Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2014, where outerwear and slouchy silhouettes were shown on the runway. It looks like metallic fabrics will be a major trend this fall as I’ve been seeing them constantly this season. I am also pleased at the return of oxblood. As much as I love blue, oxblood is so flattering and adds a touch of warmth to fall and winter.

I’m Not Looking at You

navy h&m dress

It’s another exposed zipper! I must be on a zipper kick lately. For some reason I didn’t look at the camera in any of the photos I took. I was trying to do creative-but-normal poses and I guess that means no looking at the camera.

I’m wearing my Clarks granny sandals and this H&M dress that I love… but I don’t love on me. I’ve realized that that I really like dresses to have sleeves when the neckline is so high– balances my shoulders and height better. This dress is up for trade if anyone wants it! I’m planning on clearing out a few things from my closet so I might make a page of things to trade like Those Tricks, you can see things she wants to trade here. I’m still working on that dress you sent me, Stephanie! I haven’t forgotten about it… I am just not that good at alterations.

Sun, Clouds, Rain

9 August 2011

Sometimes I think it’s going to be all sunny and wonderful even if there are supposed to be thunderstorms, so then I wear suede shoes and cream silk. Seriously, I was gearing up for a sunny day, the sun woke me up this morning rather than my phone. Luckily I managed to change out of the shoes and the cream silk is due for a cleaning anyway.

And It Was All Yellow

I wore this out to dinner with my cousin to one of those farm-to-table restaurants. I had the best foie gras ever (including France) and my Bloody Mary-ish martini was so good. This dress was probably a poor choice for dinner– it’s not forgiving through the waist and I thought I was going to have to roll out of the restaurant after dinner. I used my turtle pin to hold the sash in place because it looks better with only one knot, although it always comes undone then.

My favorite way to carry a clutch is with the chain still attached. I just drape it over the top and carry as usual. I like the way the chain looks and I can still hang the bag on a chair at dinner instead of searching for place to put it or sticking it on the chair against my back.
