RED CARPET READY IN JH.ZANE

This dress is a piece that really makes you feel like a woman. It has a sexy low back that drapes so effortlessly with a perfectly cut waistline. The designer label from London you should be watching out for is right here: JH.ZANE. I love how the designer takes something so classic like a slip dress and exaggerates it. The sleeves. The hem. The low back.

HOW TO WEAR BOLD JEWEL TONES

This is certainly one of my most outstanding coats in my closet. The most luxe, yet worn on always the most casual of days. A constant head turner. I’ve worn it numerous times throughout the winter, yet this is it’s first appearance on le blog…and with a bang. So, how the heck do you get away with these bold jewel tones?

PHEW! A LOOK THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK

Here it one more look from NYFW and can you believe the whole look is under $250? It was part of my collaboration with Amazon’s Style Code Live, and it was so good, I had to share it on the blog. I forget sometimes how heels make me feel. I used to only wear heels to castings (oh, the dread!) before slipping them off the moment I left the building to toss them in my bag. Towering over everyone used to scare me. I was long, lanky, and my confidence only showed what I was walking the runway, playing a different character. I guess I wasn’t so bad for a 15 year old. Now I have the confidence as a 5’10” woman to wear heels anytime I want. Sure I’m towering over just about every 6 foot guy in the city, but it still feels empowering. Oh, and of course your legs will look amazing. Luckily, the block heel trend doesn’t kill my feet at all. I actually prefer little dresses and stockings with the perfect block heel. I kept the rest of my look and the color palette sweet and neutral. A tiny, cotton shift dress and faux leopard coat. The beret and sheer fishnets tie it all together. Yep, and it’s all super affordable and won’t break the bank. Pieces to layer and wear over and over again. Now isn’t that a breath of fresh air?

NYFW DAY 4: FENDI NEUTRALS

I’m in love with my Fendi Spring ’17 look, straight off the runway. Amazing knitted sock booties with a beautiful flowing dress, and nude bag. Check out the heels on these Fendi bad boys! They’re striped! I threw on some leather leggings, and voila, I made my Fendi Spring ’17 look fully prepped for these cold weeks in NYC. The collection is extra quirky and cheeky. It’s an unexpected take on luxurious neutrals. Do a play on textures in neutral palettes as a way to make a statement this season without having to walk out of the house dressed like a rainbow. But trust me, I do love my rainbows.

But as always, fashion week gets me thinking beyond just the outfits. We’re so “go, go go” that sometimes it’s nice to talk amongst ourselves about how much fashion week is actually changing. Bloggers are taking over the front row, and it’s amazing that our perspectives really do matter. Even in what feels like a saturated space, it’s amazing seeing my OG girls killing it in our industry…from walking the catwalk to taking over backstage. I’m talking about the girls from 2010 who made something out of nothing…creating careers and jobs with longevity that never existed 5 or 10 years ago. It’s exciting to be a huge part of this change and evolving with it. There’s room for everyone in this space. Designers are a lot more selective with how they’re doing their shows, who is going to their shows, and they’ve become a lot more wise on who their customer is thanks to bloggers and social media. Lately, I have been stressing the importance of quality versus quantity. I don’t care if you have a million instagram followers or the best seat at a fashion show. The blogging community is about daring to be you and using your voice to inspire and be inspired through everything you put out there. Even if that means making the world your literal runway for a day.
