#NYFW: Recap


Hello Fashionistas! 

Yes, it's hump day and if you were like me today, I was in a slump; but then I got really excited after viewing all the different designers that showcased at New York Fashion Week, so far. I wanted to share some of my favorite looks, which surprisingly were not all from my favorite designers. There are several pieces that I chose from designers I didn't even know existed. A pleasant fashion surprise nonetheless. I was really looking forward to: Zac Posen, Jason Wu, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Derek Lam and Christian Siriano - to see if he was still "fierce!" - which he still is. The surprises were: Rosie Assoulin, Sophie Theallet and Badgley Mischka. 

The above and below picks are from Rodarte, not a huge fan in the past, but I now am. The thigh-high lace up boots and white jeans - Haute! The flirty  mesh at the hem of the skirt (below) so sexy, again with the lace up boots. 

Zac Posen:

Zac Posen has always been a favorite of mine. I think he really understands and appreciates a woman's body, in which he makes dresses that molds to our frames. That hour-glass silhouette is quite noticeable in these two picks, especially in the red mermaid dress below.

Rosie Assoulin:

This particular designer I was not familiar with before NYFW, however she is now someone to watch. The dress above reminds me of a traditional island garb, yet it's very refined and elegant. #Twirl

Jason Wu:

Jason Wu is amazing! I love what he did with the wrap dress above. I can see this being a career woman's staple piece because it's business with a bit of sass. 

Oscar De La Renta:

The belt above is everything! There were a lot of cropped tops, gingham patterns and floral patterns in his showcase. I really liked the different options he presented and I would say a lot of the pieces were very wearable and on trend.

Sophie Theallet:

Again, the belt is everything! This designer was also not one on my radar but I'm sure glad I stumbled upon her. I love a cinched waist. And the peek-a boo colors at the hem - of the above skirt - is on point.

Naeem Khan:

My first time seeing this designer's body of work. In one word - elegant.
This dress below could easily be a showstopper at a wedding this upcoming Spring/Summer.

Badgley Mischka:

My absolute favorite. I wanted to own one of each. This is what Ready-To-Wear means to me. Every single piece could walk off the runway and right onto the streets of NY, LA or Chicago. The jacket above, which I think is a mixture of the classic Chanel and a biker jacket is so fabulous! It's feminine-chic at its best. One more below which is also swoon-worthy.

Diane von Furstenberg:

Diane has been doing this for years and you can see, she's a pro. How fantastic is that flirty dress above?  Also, kudos for having Naomi Campbell, who just turned 44, walk in your show. Why does this woman not age? She looks gorgeous and she is working that dress with her signature strut. #Work!

Hope you guys liked my picks. Feel free to disagree with me & let me know what your favorites are from #NYFW.
