Carolina Herrera — New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015




Are just a few words I’d use to describe Carolina Herrera and her collections. Season after season, Herrera gives us bold yet feminine looks that will take your wardrobe wherever you want to go! This season focused on displaced floral patterns and thigh skimming dresses that are perfect for lunch with the girls.

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 — Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang went full on androgyny for his spring show.

Slicked back hair, less than minimal makeup, and did the models have eyebrows or am I tripping? Either way, they strutted down the runway with the most serious facial expressions!  Mr. Wang gave us a sporty yet sophisticated spring 2015 collection which featured bright colors against black mixed with pure white.

Gotta say…LOVING IT!

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 — Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano pulled out all the tricks in his hat for this collection! From laser cutout suits (yes SUITS) to floor length ball gowns to the softest of sheath dresses, the spring 2015 collection was a treat from beginning to end. This collection seemed to have a look for every type of style and any kind of event. I’d wear a laser cut suit to the office, who wouldn’t?!

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 — Tadashi Shoji

Tadashi Shoji always gives us the romanticism that we need during New York Fashion Week. The sprring and summer collection for 2015 picked up right where he left off (with a little more sexy thrown in). Structured silhouettes were met with sheer cutouts and lace overlays. I really want to have several pieces in my closet to put on for a rainy day or for the days I just want to feel like a queen!

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 — Marissa Webb




Marissa Webb won’t ever do anything wrong in my book!

She was once the head designer at J.Crew before venturing out into the fashion world with her own label. As a fashion chick who absolutely loves straight lines, Marissa will always be my BFF in my head. Since I don’t work in the traditional office setting,  I live vicariously through the girl she designs for. That girl is young, fresh faced and professional and might work in a place requires a jacket or suit pieces everyday.

The collection for spring and summer is very breezy and easy-going with just a touch of structure coming through in jackets.

This collection has “American bad ass and flirty girl” written all over it! Needless to say, I’m totally here for it!

New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 — Nicholas K

Day one of fashion week in the big apple had a sultry start! Nicholas K got things going with a collection that will have me visiting Dubai immediately! The desert khaki’s and army greens were just the tip of what 2015 will bring! Head wraps, silky fabrics, leather accents, and loose-fitting garbs equals me swooning over every model that took to the runway.

Not only did this collection have all things desert, the makeup was heavenly! Each model looked as if she’d been in the sun and heat all day with dewy skin.


And get ready ladies who love eyeliner and the sexy dark Kajal eyeliner look….


This collection took me to Sex and the City 2 (the movie) if you’ve seen it, you know EXACTLY what I’m thinking!
