New York Fashion Week Recap- The Accessories!

Shockingly, one of my favorite parts of fashion week is the accessories. Last season we saw a new crop of handbags popping up with fabulous innovative handles, see Milly. This season we are still seeing a similar handle design but in a brand new way!

Tanya Taylor showed us the bag we’ve all been wanting for the perfect Summer night out on the town!

If you are dying for it like I am you can pre-order at Moda Operandi.

If you know me, you know I love shoes (even with my insanely large shoe size, ie I fight men for shoes at

sample sales). Jen Kao hit the mark when it came to runway shoes this season. Absolutely loving the

simplicity of the leather platform mules and the super textural multi-color platform raffia mules.

Current season of Jen Kao.

I am such a sucker for a great statement necklace, and Tanya Taylor hit the mark by pairing the candy

colored jewels of Shourouk. The bold baubles were the PERFECT pairing for the fabulous pops

of color in Taylor’s collection.

Aurelio Costarella‘s collection of bridal and evening gowns were show stopping. But perfectly

perched on top was this beautiful encrusted birdcage veil. Demure yet chic and vintage.

Here’s a little taste of what I was accessorizing with this NYFW ๐Ÿ™‚

New York Fashion Week Recap Part 1

The tents are no more and the leaves have begun to fall, but NYFW is still fresh in all of our minds. Running from show to show you could hear the chatter about everyones favorite trends. Here are a few of my favorite trends/looks from NYFW. What are your favorites? What will you be rocking Spring/Summer 2014?

Cropped Tops– Cropped tops were one of the major trends this season. Everything from boxy, to fitted and flouncy. Check out some of my favorite variations!

Trina Turk presentation- love the boxy silhouette and pop color.

Trina Turk presentation- Love the boxy yet fitted silhouette in this seasons popular stripe print.

Christian Siriano Runway- Absolutely in love with Christian’s color palette. Especially this yellow

cropped top with flowing high low statement overlay. Such movement and color, a serious must have!

Christian Siriano Runway- This cropped boxy jacket has everything, circle cut swingy sleeves, and just the right geometric print.

Deivie Presentation- Laser cut, pop color, script cropped top, YES PLEASE! The perfect little tee!

Jill Stuart- Super cropped with the perfect little flounce.

Chiffon– This beautiful fabric was seen floating under tunic layered ensembles and dancing down the runway. Here are a few of my favorite.

Tanya Taylor Runway- The prints and color at Tanya Taylor just put you in a happy place.

I loved the simple silhouette here, which was perfectly paired with this very Seurat inspired print and statement jewels.

Trina Turk Presentation- We saw this severely scooped neckline on a number of runways this season.

What I love about this perfect sheath is the simplicity and the fabulous line of color bone. Additionally,

love the use of chiffon in the see though cinched pants, so summer and chic.

Trina Turk Presentation- What more are you looking for in a chic beach coverup?

Ethereal, amazing print and color, need I say more?

Jen Kao- The Jen Kao show was one of the most beautiful I experienced this season.

This flowing, layered, perfection was just a little slice of heaven from the show

that made you feel like you might just be there.

Steven Khalil Runway (in conjunction with Fashion Palette)- Beaded, craping necklines and

just the right amount of skin. Steven Khalil nailed it for the perfect evening statement.

Tomorrow will be a recap of some of the must have accessories from NYFW Spring/Summer 14….because we just can’t get enough accessories ๐Ÿ™‚
