The Fashion at Inauguration Day 2021

So I just had to take another look at all of the beautiful fashion on display at Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day ceremony. Michelle Obama looks absolutely amazing in Sergio Hudson, a Black designer from South Carolina. Dr. Jill Biden wore an ocean-blue wool tweed coat over a dress by American designer Alexandra O’Neill of the Markarian label. And, Vice President Kamala Harris wore a purple outfit by a young black designer Christopher John Rogers.

Jennifer Lopez sang in a Chanel number and Lady Gaga stunned in a gorgeous Schiaparelli design. Lastly, a young poet laureate Amanda Gorman wore a yellow Prada coat. It was a moment that will go down in history. Congratulations to Vice President Kamala Harris and President Biden!

Ruffles, Harnesses and Tulle at the Gucci F/W 2020 Show

The Gucci Fall/Winter 2020 show was quite different this year, starting with a rotating circle of dressers and models. There was quite a bit of ruffles, tulle and harness wear that flirts femininity with roughness. There was also some great pops of color to brighten up some of the usual black in fall/winter wardrobes. It was a great show and a daring open to Milan Fashion Week. Check out more photos below!

Tom Ford’s Fall 2020 NYFW Show

Happy Fashion month! New York Fashion Week is currently underway and one of my favorite shows so far has to be the Tom Ford Fall/Winter 2020 show. From the feather earrings to the sequins, it sure was a show to impress. I’ll take all of it please :). What shows have you been excited about?

The Links Inc. West Palm Beach Chapter 50th Anniversary Gala

This weekend I attended the West Palm Beach Links, Inc. Chapter’s 50th Anniversary Gala in Palm Beach Gardens. It was a beautiful event that included a gold theme (even complete with champagne and gold glitter). The Links, Inc. hold a benefit every year for their scholarship fund for kids. I had so much fun. I wore an Eliza J. Velvet Mermaid evening gown from Nordstrom. It had these gorgeous feathers on the sleeve and was quite affordable. 

If you’re going to any holiday events this month, you have to check out the “holiday dressing” mash up at Nordstrom. Happy Holidays!

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?
