NYFW, Day Three

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Yesterday was a pretty big day at NYFW (though if you ask me, everyday is a big day) with Lacoste and Alexander Wang's shows. I was particularly excited for Tibi and Christian Siriano (my love affair with him goes way back to Project Runway—so cool to see him during The Happiest Time of the Year). What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to curl up with your true love: your laptop, with Style.com open.

Look 7 from Alexander Wang

The wet look was taken to the extreme at Alexander Wang's runway shows, the models' hair drenched root to tip rather than last years trend of the slicked back wet look. The collection was the definition of edgy, with blunt edges, a gloomy color palette, and an overabundance of studs. Slip into any piece from the collection and you will instantly transform into a bad-a$$.

Look 12 from Charlotte Ronson
These deep green sequin look stood out from the rest of the collection for me, the opposite of the casual layered looks and muted tones of the collection. I love the flirty length and fluttery sheer sleeves, and the color is absolutely perfect for the fall season.

Look 22 from Lacoste

Lacoste never lacks in the athletic-inspired wear, yet I totally dig it. I loved this pleated skirt with the collared sweatshirt, especially with the graphic text. The pointed-toe shoes just add that extra bit of masculinity for a perfectly juxtaposed early fall outfit.

Look 17 from Altuzarra
This mixes the probable trends of pastels and statements jackets. There's been a lot of colorful fur/fur-adorned jackets so far throughout various collections, but this color and length stood out to me. I saw regular pea coats in stores this winter with this color, but nothing that was fur.

Look 26 from Christian Siriano

I feel like I have a personal connection with Christian Siriano after watching him on Project Runway all those years ago and it makes me feel like a proud mama to see him producing gorgeous pieces like this dress. The collection overall gave a sort of wild tone, with sheer zebra prints and the jungle-themed background. This reminds me of a kimono mixed with a tulle gown , which is my dream combination.

Look 30 from Mara Hoffman
This look from Mara Hoffman spoke to me. I'm all about unorthodox draping until it works.

Looks 3, 8, and 25 from Misha Nonoo

Misha Nonoo's collection gave me flashbacks to elementary school at points (the first look made me reminisce of the years of layering jumpers over blouses every morning). I loved the overall neutral color scheme of the collection, especially the print (seen in the middle above) that appeared in a few pieces.

Top row: Looks 5, 9, and 14 from Tibi
Bottom row: Looks 17, 26, and 37 from Tibi
Tibi's show was one that I was the most pumped for. I forgot where my obsession with Tibi started, but I believe it was because of a black midi skirt and a gray peplum jacket that I was convinced that I needed. There's always something so simple, yet so chic about Tibi's collections. As much as I love "ugly" clothing, the classic silhouettes and colors is probably my true aesthetic. The bottom middle look (#26) is an outfit that I think I actually need in my life.
