New York Fashion Week: Were these the worst shows?

There’s a lot of love during New York Fashion Week, especially in the bloggersphere. But I can’t sit here and pretend that every collection is gorgeous and I love all the trends for next season. While I respect the hard work of each designer who is able to show during Fashion Week, I have to […]


New York Fashion Week: Watch for these trends in 2014

Now that New York Fashion Week has wrapped up, I took another look at the spring 2014 collections to see what styling elements stood out to me most. I’ve compiled my top five trends—for better, or for worse—to look for in 2014.     Fringe: We saw it in Altuzarra’s early show and again in […]

New York Fashion Week: Ladies’ Highlights

I’m an armchair critic this season, but I’m certainly glad I didn’t have to battle a snowy situation to attend Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. I’ve been gobbling up slideshows as quickly as they’ve been posted, and squinting at sequins and sashes. Here are some looks that caught my eye—you can look for similar […]

New York Fashion Week: Top looks in review

Welcome to my first installment of quick looks from Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, happening right now. Since I can’t be at the tents this September to preview all of the new looks for spring, I’m using the power of the Internet to bring some of them to you. We’ll go over some of […]

Guest Blogger: The “It” Bag of the Season

I am a self-proclaimed handbag addict. I long for a new bag each season to adorn my arm and carry each and everything that I simply must have on hand at all times. However, purchasing a designer handbag every season can tire out my poor wallet (and my fiancé!) Alas, I try to reason that […]


New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Trend recap

When I embarked on my journey to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week earlier this month, I had my eyes peeled for a few trends: boxy blazers, straight trousers, and shades of mint and lavender. This fashionista must admit, she was a bit far off. Apologies, dear reader. But with every Fashion Week season comes a few […]

New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Venexiana

Kati Stern’s Venexiana presented 70 looks on Saturday night, with enough evening wear to dress my entire senior prom. The designer is well known inside the tents for her long, extravagant shows, but for a newcomer to this particular runway, it was nearly overwhelming. Dresses with puff sleeves and multicolored lace provided a 1980s vibe […]

New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Carlos Miele

Carlos Miele took inspiration from Southern Brazil this season with a Mercedes Benz Fashion Week show that paid tribute to gauchas, the outdoorsy women of the region. This was not a subtle nod; Miele dressed models in ponchos, boleros, and brimmed hats. But beyond the theme, Miele provided an attractive collection that will be admired […]

New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Reem Acra

Somewhere between art deco and gladiator sits the Reem Acra fall 2012 collection. And why not—after all, the collection was about “feminine power” and the complex puzzle of the modern woman. And while strength valued, the collection went to far into “power” territory and just felt hard. The show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week opened […]

New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Ruffian

Ruffian explored British countryside estates for its fall 2012 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week show at Lincoln Center. The resulting collection, which focused on a “melding” of feminine and masculine; formal and modern, was far from seamless. The show began with a cacophony of plaid that would make the most prep-school among us cringe. Brimmed hats […]
