FNO @ Kelly Wearstler

For as long as I can remember I have been a fan of Kelly Wearstler’s work as an interior designer so imagine my excitement when she started designing clothes and jewelry! September 6th was the annual Fashion’s Night Out, and this year I happened to be in LA instead of NY. I was thrilled to attend Kelly Wearstler’s FNO event at her beautiful store on Melrose. Upon entering the gorgeous space, you can immediately tell that a true interior decorator designed the entire space. Every detail was thoroughly planned and thought out to reflect her unique and dynamic aesthetic. Manicure stations were set up throughout the store with champagne and mini Pressed Juicery beverages which were in abundance! Kelly herself was there {I was too shy to ask for a picture with her…regretting it now!}. I absolutely loved seeing her clothing collection.  One of my favorite looks were these bright green tuxedo pants paired with a simple black and white tank and a scarf. I love that she mixed patterns, something that's on my list of new things to try. The pattern on the tank was small polka dots and the pattern on the scarf was a larger graphic black and white print {see photo below}. All of her pieces feel timeless and you can easily mix them with current items you have in your wardrobe! Check out her blog and website for more inspiration!

What shops did you go to on FNO?

{ And, that's a wrap }

Last Thursday commenced the hectic yet oh-so glamorous series of weeks where bloggers, fashionistas, editors, and designers alike gather to swoon over the Spring 2013 jaw dropping collections around the world.  Also known as Fashion Week, it's NYC that kicks off the snazzy event then the ripple effect worldwide takes place with London, Milan, Paris and Tokyo following suit.  For now, NYC Fashion week takes front and center with attendees sashaying into the Lincoln Center with their most stylish outfit and most coveted bags; let's not forget the drool-worthy shoes. And although we aren't there to enjoy the amazing shows, at least I have a front row seat via laptop! Being a fashion design student myself, I love to study the new collections for the upcoming seasons and see the inspiration behind each one. The creativity is endless and it never ceases to amaze me and enlighten my own aesthetic. Here were some of my favorite collections: 
BCBG
{ Loving the delicate edge that the leather harness mixed with lace gives each look }
 Bibhu Mohapatra
{ These evening gowns are stunning }
 Holmes & Yang
{Debut collection by Katie Holmes & her stylist Jeanne Yang.   I'm loving the simple/chic looks}
 Mara Hoffman
{ Ethnic prints and a vibrant color palate is what rocked the runway for this collection }
 Milly
{ Each piece is genius!  Lace blazer, leather shorts and metallic skirt for Spring? Yes please } 
  Rachel Zoe
{ Move over purses because RZ did it again, bringing the Fanny pack back! How chic is that belt?!}
  Skaist Taylor
{ The second their 10 year non-compete agreement with Liz Claiborne was over, the original Juicy girls were right back in the game with their newest clothing line, Skaist Taylor }

Although I go weak in the knees for Fall and Winter clothing, I have to say I'm quite excited for Spring 2013 in my closet!  Who was your favorite at NY Fashion Week this year?
