Fall Fashion: The Perfect Vest

This post is just a little break from Fashion Week.  Today, I'm bringing to you all a vest that I'm just loving!  It's the Excursion Vest by Jcrew.  I don't own it but I hope to add it to my closet soon because it's a classic piece that you can pull out year after year.   Can't you just picture the vest paired with a chambray shirt (sleeves rolled up a bit), black leggings, and black riding boots?

I'm loving it in Navy!
It's super cute in green too.  The blazer adds a touch of sophistication and a bit of warmth too!

Alberta Ferreti Spring 2014

Fashion Month continues as new styles just keep pouring in all over the world.  One show that particularly captivated me was Alberta Feretti's Spring 2014 show in Milan, Italy.   I enjoyed the designer's use of bright hues especially oranges and cobalt blues, similar to those used at the Ralph Lauren show.  This made for a cheerful theme.  I love that many of the styles were reminiscent of traditional Mexican dresses.  See my favorite picks from the show below...

The floral embellishments are so gorgeous and I love the ribbon detailing.  

I love the simplicity of this look.  It's so crisp and so clean.

The color of the dress is just stunning.  I'm also dying over the wrap around shoes. 

What's not to love about this dress?  Again, the color is stunning and the floral detail is gorgeous!

Burberry Spring 2014

Move over New York Fashion Week!  It's time for London Fashion Week.   The most hyped show thus far has been Burberry's Spring 2014 show.  I think this collection, designed by Christopher Bailey, was so on point. The collection was feminine, whimsical, and just sheer perfection (pun intended). Check out my favorite picks from the show below...

There's a lot going on here, but it's all gorgeous!  The mint lace fabric is a beautiful twist on Burberry's classic trench coat.  The sunburst jewels just look so delicious and regal.  The pink belt might be a little much for my liking because of the floral appliques, but nonetheless it's a winning look.   

Although a bit bold, I'm liking this look because I think it's something that can easily be transferred from runway to your closet!  

This is my absolute favorite look of the show, it's literally purple perfection.   The cut of the trench is just so chic.  The pattern of this fabric is just gorgeous and I really love the way the belt accentuates the model's figure.

Ralph Lauren: All Across the Spectrum

Ralph Lauren, a classic name in American Fashion, has just debut his Spring 2014 line at New York Fashion Week.

The show started with looks, like the one above that featured beautiful and classic shapes reminiscent of the 60's.   Lauren played with multiple patterns but stuck to the trendy black and white palette.  Then suddenly, models started appearing in stunning brights including orange (pictured below), yellow, red, and a gorgeous sapphire blue.  Because the pieces all had a coherent shape, the show flowed beautifully.  The mix of black and white pieces with colorful pieces was genius.    

And there's just nothing like a Ralph Lauren gown.  His gowns are timeless and elegant.  I'll let the photo (below) speak for itself.

Victoria Beckham Spring 2014

If there's anybody who knows how to look chic, it's Victoria Beckham.  At her Spring 2014, we her the usual silhouettes but this time with a sporty twist.  We also saw beautiful burgundies and pomegranate tones.  I'm loving the look below as it features an interesting neckline and sporty hemline reminiscent of a tennis skirt.

The biggest standout, would have to be this collection's bags.  Beckham played with geometric patterns on many of her frocks as well as her handbags.   I like that the handbags are pretty structured but this element is juxtaposed with a fun triangle pattern!

Sophisticated Denim

We are in the midst of fashion month!  With New York Fashion Week alive and thriving,  there's just so much fashion to cover!  Today I'm coming at you all with a style that I predict may soon be a trend. I like to call it Sophisticated Denim. We usually think of denim as a pretty casual fabric that at times can be dressed up.  This season two designers, Derek Lam and Diane Von Furstenberg have tackled the task of creating new, sophisticated structures with denim.

While I enjoyed Derek Lam's Spring 2014 run way show, the above look by Derek Lam is a little to severe for me.  It's definitely denim overkill.

Now this is how sophisticated denim should be done!  The dark denim doesn't overwhelm the lace and the flared bit of the dress is super chic.  I like that this dress is a denim take on DVF's classic wrap dress.  However,  I'm still feeling a bit ambivalent about this whole sophisticated denim look.  How do you feel about this trend?

Tulle by Zara

No matter how quickly I'm running out the door, I always spritz on some perfume.  Perfume is an essential for me.  I've been really into Zara perfumes for about 2 years now and they seem to be all that I am using nowadays.   I love that Zara perfumes range from $9.99 to $19.99, super affordable!  My most recent purchase is Tulle by Zara.  The scent is described as a floral woody musk scent but I think it smells a tad more fruity than floral.  The only downside to Tulle is that it doesn't have the longest lasting power.  I also highly recommend Zara Black which smells similar to Viktor and Rolf's Flowerbomb.  You can purchase Zara perfumes and colognes in Zara stores.  You'll find the displays set up next to the cash registers.  Go check them out!

The Perfect Fall Sweater

Recently I've been seeing a particular type of sweater everywhere.  Problem is, I don't quite know what this style is called.  So instead of attempting to name or describe this sweater, I'll post a picture below.


I love the look of a different fabric peeking out from under a knit sweater.  I've seen one that I particularly like at Zara as well (see below).  The chiffon peaking out from the knit material is just so chic!   Although you can't tell in the picture, in person,  this sweater has a faint hint of shimmer to it -- so cute.

Maybe we could call them peek-a-boo sweaters.  What do you think of them?
