This Sunday was my 2nd day at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I was very fortunate to attend the Custo Barcelona, Joanna Mastroianni, and Vivienne Tam shows! I also spent some time with my cousin Catherine, who is a writer for People.
Between the snow and the hail and the rain, yesterday was nothing short of dramatic at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center! I spent my day at CZAR by Cesar Galindo, Sally Lapointe, Monika Chiang, and Rebecca Minkoff in addition to seeing two of my best friends and fellow bloggers, Hannah and Ryan. Here’s a selfie I took before heading into the city for my shows:
Usually I’m absolutely in love with every piece in a Chloé collection, but this season’s just didn’t do it for me. I felt as though there was too much going on and a lot of tension between the paisley, snake print, and color blocking. It didn’t feel very together at all- I wish they had just picked a color scheme and stuck with it. However, there were a few looks that I liked! Here they are…

Marchesa’s Fall Ready-to-Wear collection was, as expected, breathtakingly beautiful. The show was covered in lace and delicate detail, but paired with the dramatic silhouettes made for an exceptionally interesting collection. Here are my favorite looks:

Recently Nicole Miller’s ad campaign for Spring 2011, starring Sophie Holmes of IMG, was released. The photos were shot by Robbie Fimmano at Fast Ashley’s photo studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and styled by Natasha Royt.
There is rarely a Dior show I dislike, but their Spring 2011 Couture show blew me away. Here are some of my favorite looks:
I can’t say I loved the hot pink numbers, but everything else definitely made up for it. The pale blue looks were definitely my favorite, with the tan/neutrals at a close second. I can’t wait to see which of these will end up on the red carpet!
Today H&M announced that that they will be coming out with a line of clogs in collaboration with Swedish Hasbeens. The collection, which debuts on April 20th, will be composed of three styles of clogs in various colors. Customers can expect to find the shoes in 150 stores worldwide. Swedish Hasbeens, founded in 2007 by Cilla Wingård Neuman and Emy Blixt, is an extremely popular European shoe label and famous for their clogs. They’re a celebrity favorite, seen on Maggie Gyllenhaal and Sarah Jessica Parker. The upcoming line is inspired by traditional Swedish style of the ’70s.
What do you think? Will this be another successful collaboration between H&M and a high-end brand? Which style will you pick up when they come to stores?

I have yet to see Black Swan, but I am quite looking forward to it. It seems to be making quite an impact on the world of fashion at least. I’m excited to see it evolve as an aesthetic masterpiece to be valued to years to come.

What I really loved about Thakoon’s Pre-Fall collection was that it went from simplistic brights in minimalist pieces to boho, grungy florals in dresses and jackets. Yet it all fit together really nicely. Well done.
