B.O.B. Best of the Best of S/S Fashion Week 2013

Even though it’s in the past, I can’t help but still be inspired by all the amazing looks of fashion week. There was so much I liked but with its numerous applications I think sheer fabrics stole the show. Victoria Beckham used sheer to create modesty and intrigue while Zac Posen chose to layer in a print to create ornate gowns. Donna Karen and Carolina Herrera embroidered sheer gowns that are simply the epitome of elegance and grace. With all this beauty I am looking forward to spring already! ~amberlee

Pageant Girls Take Note S/S Fashion Week 2013

This might be one of my favorite collections of photos I’ve curated for fashion week. :) As a former pageant girl myself, I have still floored that this industry traditionally cultivates some of the ugliest and gaudy ‘self expression’ amongst young women. I’ll stand by my statement that couture does not equal a hot glue gun and rhinestones. In my humble opinion, the world should take note from the current Miss USA, Olivia Culpo. The brand herself and the Miss Universe organization has created for her is sophisticated, strong and refined. Ladies, you can’t buy a “winning look”. What you can exude through your clothing is taste and a strong sense of self. You can start to do this by studying the true innovators and designers in fashion and not taking your pageant coaches advice as gospel. ~amberlee

WTF of S/S Fashion Week 2013

Sometimes designers mess up. Most of us are lucky do so in the quiet of our studio, but when you’re kind of a big deal there is no place to hide at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. And while I have nothing but respect for someone who can make it on this big stage, these are the looks that I feel could have used a second look! ~amberlee

Best of Pattern of S/S Fashion Week 2013

The surface pattern designer in me LOVES to see the next new thing in print! I always go to DVF first but to my suprise this season there was much less pattern than I expected. Bold colors used with dramatic cuts and detail were center stage in her show, but Fashion Week as a whole pulled through to provide enough for this post!:) Enjoy! ~amberlee

Most Wearable of S/S Fashion Week 2013

The only thing I love more than looking at amazing clothing is to WEAR amazing clothing. Unfortunately my style is a victim of my own designer income. How ironic? But these wearable looks I think will be accessible and may not have to break the bank. JCrew is bringing high fashion the the masses while I know Zara is already putting together their own inspiration boards based these designs. Remember you can value engineer just about anything!;) ~amberlee 

Ps This part 1 of a 7 part series on fashion week so stick around for a full fashion week round up!

Most Wearable of S/S Fashion Week 2013

The only thing I love more than looking at amazing clothing is to WEAR amazing clothing. Unfortunately my style is a victim of my own designer income. How ironic? But these wearable looks I think will be accessible and may not have to break the bank. JCrew is bringing high fashion the the masses while I know Zara is already putting together their own inspiration boards based these designs. Remember you can value engineer just about anything!;) ~amberlee

Remembering September 11th 

These are photographs I took of the beautiful views from the 90th floor of 1WTC back in March. The glass is not up yet so the edge of the building is covered in netting. An amazing site visit that made me proud to be a New Yorker. ~amberlee

| incidental INSPIRATION | Backstage Illustrations from Carolina Herrera 

Looking through fashion week photos I came across these illustrations by Samantha Hahn that she completed today backstage at Carolina Herrera. While fashion illustrations have become trendy I still love them and have tremendous respect for someone who can put these together in an afternoon! BEAUTIFUL!

| my TOPS | my highlights of Fashion’s Night Out

Waiting patiently in line at @DVF made Troy and I think about how we need to become real big deals in NY before next year.:)  But despite that we had lots of fun visiting stores in the Meatpacking District and purchasing items from The Shops at Target and the great temporary stores that have been set up under The High Line next door to DVF. Definitely worth checking out if not only for the food. ( They will be there through October) AND I heard a rumor of AMAZING Thai inspired hot dogs from Asian Dog. ;)
