New York Fashion Week is over

So I'm behind on all the shows but I've been trying to catch up. I'll tell you on collection I was enamored of. Ralph Lauren's piece blew me away even though they were simple. I wasn't too crazy about his past shows, but this makes me think of the old West in a good way. I have the sudden urge to wear white and brown every day now. The whole color scheme was those two colors with a few light blue and metallic exceptions. The overall effect was very crisp and makes me excited for spring even though I really want it to be fall here! It even made me look favorably on fringe, not a favorite motif of mine. I looked at Betsey Johnson's collection right after Ralph's and they couldn't be more different. Betsey's was an explosion of color and just over all gaudy (the models wore necklaces that said "Ride Me") so Ralph is definitely a favorite.

Marc Jacobs NYFW SS11

Marc's collection for next season was well interesting. I can't lie. I love anything he does because I love him, but this season I'm having a harder time picturing what I could wear from this collection. I've seen reviews from this season's shows and they all say the same things, that this is a complete 180 from last season's more conservative and lady-like pieces. It's true and it does make sense because spring and summer are times when we can go crazy with our clothing choices since it's warmer weather.

There is a definite 70's vibe to this collection and I can see some Missoni inspiration here as well. Clingy, shiny, and sheer are all key words to describe Marc's fabric choices. The accessories remind me of the French Rivera.

A Little Bit of Everything

So I've seen a lot of images today. Some pretty and some horrific. I have been looking at NYFW pics and my just arrived copy of the September issue of Vogue. I also met with a teacher at my school to interview her about her trip to Rwanda. You could say I've looked at things from different sides of the world. It's crazy. She had pictures from the genocide memorials she visited and it was so sad. It causes you to reexamine everything. The best part of being a journalist in college is that you can do so many different kinds of stories from fashion to deep human interests pieces and I love every minute of it.

It's New York Fashion Week

My favorite time of the year.... I can't wait to see all the spring shows and catch up on this blog. I've been super busy so sorry for being M.I.A. and I don't mean the cool rapper.

I leave you with an image from Kate Spade's Clothing Collection from
