THE BUBBLE DRESS IN PARIS

This is not a normal shape I wear…the bubble, but it’s pretty fun to switch things up, and especially during Paris Fashion Week. Here I am snapped outside the Marimekko show. The presentation was beautiful, with loads of pink and reds with women of all ages taking the stage. It was refreshing. This little Marimekko bubble polka-dot number went best with a pair super thigh-high Tamara Mellon boots and my favorite Proenza bag. Totally rain proof. The weather was intense, making it one of those days to throw my hair up in a bun, skip the makeup, and add on giant pair of goggles…aka, my fun Karen Walker sunglasses. Paris was amazing this fashion month. There were so many incredible shows, presentations, and previews. Team Suarez had the most productive week of non-stop action! There was so much to do in so little time! Our home base was at the super chic Hoxton hotel. I have never run into so many people I’ve worked with before in one place. It was like a zoo…it felt like everyone was either out in the cafe taking meetings or simply chilling out with a glass of wine in between shows. It’s a pretty amazing space to just sit and people watch. Everyone looked wonderful, all jazzed up in their best for the shows. In Paris, I always feel I step up my game when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. I like to wear something a little out of the ordinary. The city just makes you want to create beauty of everything that’s around you. I always come home after a Paris trip feeling inspired to soak up the simple luxuries of the everyday because in Paris, that’s what life is about. The luxury of your morning coffee. The luxury of simply walking around the city. I can get used to the luxury of everything made in France.

THE SHEARLING COAT AND CHANEL

My gorgeous Chanel bag is making another quick appearance. It makes it’s way out of it’s precious garment bag for work trips to Europe or special meetings and events in NYC. It’s time I start wearing it a little bit more. But for now, it’s Easter weekend and I’m all about living in yoga pants..full off-duty mode right now. It is officially the holiday weekend for me and though I will be editing in Premiere Pro with the team and reviewing projects (we have an intense week of shoots coming up), I am still very excited to sleep in on a Sunday and thoroughly enjoy my 24 hours of downtime. It may be spring in NYC, but the breeze is still cold enough to wrap myself up in a shearling coat and little leather gloves before heading out anywhere. I’ve had this stunning Coach jacket for a while now. I’ve never had it photographed, but I wear it so much. It remains a favorite staple piece in my coat closet. Slightly cropped, a little boxy, with an epic and unique mix of purples. You can probably tell that I’m constantly walking on the sunny side of the street and easing into spring by switching out my darks with my lights. Think a cropped off-white jean (I have a slight obsession with Mother Denim) and fun pops of color down to my socks. In NYC, we sort of skip spring and hop straight into summer. I will be anxiously awaiting that day and the smell of hot, steamy summer nights.

#TOMMYNOW IN MILAN

Milan Fashion Week is wonderful in that in-between shows you have all the pasta and pizza in the world right at your fingertips. Heaven. I was just in town with Tommy Hilfiger for once again, one of the biggest shows of the season. The #TOMMYNOW show is a production, and you definitely want to be invited. There’s always incredible music and most of all, an insane energy that just radiates during fashion week. I’m talking crazy huge crowds and one of the largest red carpets I’ve ever seen. It certainly was a star-studded event with an audience of people flown in from all over the world, just for this one show. At my fitting I went for a classic All-Americana sheer jersey and trouser pant. It took me a quick 5 minutes to finalize my look…easy. I love that Tommy gives me a reason to sport my casual reds, whites, and blues anytime of the year. And head-to-toe sheer in freezing Milano? Anything for Tommy, of course, with a little tug on my winter coat. The venue was so big, I may as well call it a stadium. Race cars lined the runway and I couldn’t help but climb up on a few tires for an epic view of the space. It had been completely transformed into a fire engine red race track inspired by all things fast and furious. The models came out in crop tops, bombers, and killer biker shorts made for putting the pedal to the metal. Coming from a girl who loves to drive, the energy was electric. A super fun race car track in the middle of Milano was just what the city needed this fashion week.
