• NYFW: LC Lauren Conrad Collection for Kohls

    Fashion Week is ON, y’all!  Our first show review: LC Lauren Conrad Collection for Kohls, a show I was thrilled to attend for obvious reasons.  Lauren has been working tirelessly for months on her runway collection and it really showed at her NYFW debut.  If you missed the livestream you can check out video of the beautiful, feminine show here.

    The event was more than just beautiful clothes – it was an opportunity to get our group of best girls together to support one of our own.  After the show we all enjoyed a festive dinner together at Beauty & Essex on the LES with friends, family, homies from Kohls, and Lauren’s team.  But now…back to the clothes:

    After the Madness

    Our 5 Fashion Week Moments

    Seven straight days of clothes, crazy people, coffee, cabs and more are officially finished for one more season. Like when anything comes to an end, it’s time for reflection. Navigating through the endless looks, designers and trend trend overload post Fashion Week frenzy can be daunting. So here are the top five lessons we’ve learned from this seasons marathon.

    1. Gym clothes not for the gym are everywhere – Bust out those sneakers! Nearly everything designer from Alexander Wang to Rebecca Taylor showcased sportswear inspired looks, perfect for not so athletic gals like myself.

    2. Tastefully Transparent – From sheer tops to fully transparent skirts, Spring 2015 is all about sexy translucent pieces. Slip optional.

    3. Bigger is better – This season we saw over-sized everything. Easy breezy loose fitting dresses, coats and tops that leave a trail of flowing fabric behind. Light luxe fabrics are ideal for the warmer months ahead.

    4. Makeup is out – The #Iwokeuplikethis trend is strong as ever, as countless designers including Marc Jacobs showcased barefaces. So start exfoliating and moisturizing your way into Spring 2015.

    5. Gingham,gingham, gingham – The picnic friendly plaid also known as gingham proved itself as a major staple this season. The pattern gives any look a sweetness with a does of edge. Use it in your wardrobe for some pattern play and layering.
