To say some of the looks at NY fashion week were bold would be an understatement. Bright colors and bold prints ruled the runways and were crafted in a such a way that one wouldn't feel ostentatious wearing the looks. Beautiful dresses, coats, skirts and even tights were made to stand out in florals, plaids and geo-prints.
The patchwork tartan, one-should chiffon gown by Oscar de la Renta is absolutely my favorite.
Although I've always liked her clothes, I've never featured L'Wren Scott until now. Her Fall 2011 collection is absolutely beautiful and I LOVE it. The models are smoldering with a mix of sophistication and sexy secretary chic. Her looks are typically designed for taller women, as she is a very tall, ex-model herself. Here are some of my favorites...
There's something about satin, sparkle, big waves, gold jewelry, glam, disco and red lips...I have a feeling the 70's will be coming back for years to come. I try to adopt whatever I can from the decade without looking costumey, but I don't have the courage to go all out...as seen here in Vogue Germany, February 2011.
Planning my outfit for the girl talk concert next weekend made me think of how fashion limits can really be tested at concerts. There's no dress code at concerts except dress to express yourself. Of course you want to be comfortable (for dancing and noodling), but you also want to be fashionable. My good friend and fellow blogger (see here) is always dressed this way, and I find lots of inspiration from her posts. Below are some of my favorite looks from concerts this year. It's clear that these outfits were inspired by the music and unique personal style.
