OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

 

Happy Tuesday Beautiful!

Good morning gorgeous! I hope your morning is going well so far and your day is starting out fabulously! Today we have a little pop of color in our Trendy Tuesday! Since I am really trying to incorporate more color into my wardrobe (I am just always drawn to black!), I figured what better way to get a little motivation than to add it into my OOTD’s also! So, let me know what you think and how you add a little bit of color into your outfits!

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday

 

Top: Helmut Lang (Bernard Boutique), 231; Pants: J Brand, $407; Shoes: Karma Inspirations, $69; Scarf: Nic+Zoe, $108; Bracelets: Chloe, $250 and Nelly, $13; Earrings: David Aubrey (Max and Chloe), $125

How is that for some color?! I absolutely love this look, so I just need to make myself buy more things like these (which, knowing me, shouldn’t be a problem!).  Speaking of color… Diane von Furstenberg‘s line that debuted on Sunday at NYFW is full of color and amazing patterns and it is absolutely amazing! I seriously could not love it more, so if you haven’t seen any of her new pieces, check out my blog post on DewdropDC’s blog!

What do you guys think of this outfit and the fun pop of color?! How do you get color in your outfits? I can’t wait to hear what y’all do, so let me know in the comments!

NYFW: A’Detacher SS’14 Collection

Better Late Than Never… Right?

So, as I told you lovely ladies a few weeks ago (you know… right after it actually happened!), I had the privilege of  working New York Fashion Week with the PR firm that I interned with this summer! And being a dream of mine for so many years, it was absolutely amazing… I’m sure it is much more glamorous for the guests attending the shows (my life was a little stressful and very busy those few days!), but I had so much fun and I cannot wait to be able to do it again (hopefully, at least!).  So, the very first runway show I worked (the first event was a presentation – Sergio Davila – so unfortunately I wasn’t able to get any pictures) was A’Detacher.  A very fashion forward collection, designer Mona Kowalska included pronounced creases and flyaway zippers in many of her pieces, that added a lot of personality to the overall look.  They may sound really simple (and they are) and non-vital to the collection, but they really were an essential part of her line that made it stand out from many of the other collections we saw during the week, which were centered mainly around pastel tunics and sheer overlays.  Overall, I think her collection was very bold and different; and, while it has been called “scattered” by many (and I agree that some of it was a bit different that the norm for a SS collection), I think there is definitely a place in almost every woman’s closet for at least one of her pieces!

And now for the best part! Here are some of my pictures from the show:

They aren’t the best quality because all I had with me was my phone, but a girl I worked with (and an amazing friend!), Taylor, had an awesome camera with her, so when she puts her photos online, I will post some more (with much better quality…) for you beauties!

What did you guys think of her collection? I would love some other opinions!!

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – NYC Style

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week SS14 - NYC

Last week all of my dreams came true… I got the opportunity to attend (well work…) New York Fashion Week.  The company I worked for over the summer invited some of the interns back for fashion week, and I happened to be one of them.  Attending fashion week has been a dream of mine since I was a teeny tiny little girl, and now I can finally cross yet another thing off of my bucket list.

While I was there, I worked:

This was really the opportunity of a lifetime, and I cannot tell you how grateful and lucky I am to have had the chance to be there! Stay tuned for more information and pictures from my time there!

XOXO, Kristen
