Mark Fast London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 Collection

Happy London Fashion Week! So far I’ve been loving the Mark Fast Spring/Summer 2020 Collection shown in London today. He took some fashion risks and coupled that with some great creativity and I’m impressed. Needless to say, there’s a bunch of clothes I want to wear from the collection. What did you think of it?

Hailee Steinfeld in Viktor & Wolf’s “No Photos Please” Dress at The Met Gala

I remember seeing this “No Photos Please” dress by Viktor and Wolf on the Spring Couture 2019 runway. The dresses made a fashion statement even without the literal statements on the dresses. What a way to do tulle! I just loved the look and the camera she carried was a great note to add to the look.

What was your favorite dress of the evening?

Black and White on the Runway for Fall/Winter 2019

Jeremy Scott

So black and white are a classic color combination. But who knew we would spot so much of the combo on the runway for the Fall/Winter 2019? While there has definitely been a good bit of color injected into the season, we’ve seen almost entire collections like Jeremy Scott feature the classic color combination. Longchamp, Area and more featured the color combo. See more below!

Bows and Animal Print at Alexandre Vauthier Paris SS 2019 Couture Week

Paris Spring/Summer 2019 Couture Week is the stuff of creative dreams. I mean, perhaps couture does not sell as well as ready-to-wear but I hope couture never goes anywhere. And for those of you that scoff and say who would wear that?? Well, try going outside of your comfort zone sometimes and re-envisioning what you wear. It is 2019 after all.

Alexandre Vauthier’s PCW SS 19 runway show was absolutely amazing! From the bows to the animal print, I was just so inspired. Bows are actually a big thing on the runway this week. From Christian Dior to Giambattista Valli and more, bows have been all over the runway. I’m here for the feminine addition. Anyway, check out more photos from the show below!

Meghan Markle in Givenchy for Royal Wedding

So it’s official ladies and gentleman! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have gotten married y’all! And it was a royal wedding with a Black American twist all the way from Karen Gibson and the Kingdom Choir to Michael Curry to Sheku Kanneh-Mason! It was definitely not lost on us that Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, is African-American. In any case, Meghan Markle wore Givenchy for her big day along with the Order of Splendor tiara loaned by the Queen. I have to say I was a little bit underwhelmed by her choice of dress but I guess she had to keep it conservative. I must say though the cut on the dress was perfection. It fit Meghan’s frame perfectly. Here’s to the new couple!

Happy Monday everyone! Last week the Fashion Institute of Technology Future of Fashion Show took the runway in the Garment District and what great looks. I picked five of my favorites, a few of which received awards. Stacy Isaacs was a Critic Award Winner and Chaya Hoffman’s beautiful dress was the People’s Choice Award Winner. All of these looks definitely make a statement and can be rocked off the runway too. Check out more below. Which is your favorite?

Mother’s Day Memories

What are you doing for Mother’s Day? It’s May 13 for those that don’t know. And it’s coming up very soon! One of my favorite Mother’s Days was back in 2009 (pictured above). My grandmother, mother and I went to church early and then went to The Breakers Hotel (pictured below) for a fabulous fancy Mother’s Day brunch. Everything you could think of was there to eat plus a steady flow of unlimited mimosas. It was a day I’ll never forget. I lost my grandmother in 2010 and dream about her all the time. If you are lucky enough to still have your mother or grandmother enjoy the day!

And what better way to celebrate with a nice gift? Inspire her to stay active with a fitbit or go for a nice hat. It will definitely come in handy this summer. For the wine aficionados, check out the wine decanter and glasses below. Finally as a last resort, you can always just buy a gift card. Happy shopping!
