Vogue vs. Fashion Bloggers

September 27, 2016

Is Vogue out of touch when it comes to their views on bloggers?

On Tuesday morning, my Instagram and Twitter feeds were blowing up with angry posts, and it wasn't because of the Presidential Debate. The culprit was Vogue, who posted a recap of Milan Fashion Week that included a pretty harsh discussion about the role of bloggers at fashion shows.

Fall Must-Have | Ruffle Sweater

Get a not-so-basic sweater this fall

You guys, fall has officially arrived. Time to bust out the knit sweaters, boots, and Halloween DCOMs (who's up for a Hocus Pocus watching party soon?) because the leaves are changing and pumpkin spices are filling the air!

Top trends from London and Milan

Fall may have just started yesterday, but we're already looking forward to spring in the fashion world. London Fashion Week has come and gone (so has NYFW, if you missed that recap) and we're in the midst of Milan Fashion Week. There's some great stuff coming from across the pond, so here's the rundown on the top trends and collections from the past week:

PopSugar September Must Have Box

Goodies from the PopSugar September Must-Have Box

Everything for a stylish fall!

There are so many things in this world that I want to try, so many styles I've yet to wear, so many new products I need to test out. It's impossible to try out everything, but thank goodness for subscription boxes like the PopSugar Must-Have Box that help me sample some of the latest trends and products.

The 2016 Emmys Red Carpet

Is Emmys fashion better than the Oscars?

A bold question, perhaps, but hear me out: we are in Peak TV mode, where the quality (and quantity) of television has hit an all-time high. Game of Thrones is on par, technically and story-wise, with the most epic of film series. Transparent, Master of None, and Orange is the New Black are dealing with issues of racial and gender diversity in a way that the film industry has been slow to do (#OscarsSoWhite ring a bell?). The People v. O.J. Simpson: An American Crime Story gave viewers the chance to reconsider their stances on characters made popular by the media twenty years prior, and confronted the myth of "reality" television and media construction head-on.

What I'd Wear From NYFW SS17

Give me all the clothes

New York Fashion Week always leaves me with some raging envy, both for the people who get to go to see the shows and for the clothes themselves. Yes, some of the clothes are available to purchase right away thanks to see-now-buy-now collections and preorder sites like Moda Operandi, but even then, I'm an unemployed twenty-two-year-old with very limited funds. I wish I could buy all the Proenza Schouler and Rodarte in the world, but alas, unless you Mulleavy sisters are reading this and want to gift me some fairy princess garments, I'll be admiring these clothes from afar. Life is so unfair.

New York Fashion Week Recap

All the stories, trends, and news from NYFW

Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, my friends, and boy, is there a lot to discuss! Most designers were showcasing their Spring 2017 collections, but a few bold brands adopted the see-now, buy-now method and showed clothes that were available for purchase immediately. Some celebrity lines soared (Gigi x Tommy Hilfiger) while others crashed and burned (*cough*Yeezy), and as always there was plenty of controversy over collections, but all in all there were some truly stunning collections (Altuzarra, Delpozo, and Proenza Schouler were the big standouts for me) and plenty of fashion to get me excited for 2017.

Trending | Tapestry Fabrics

September 14, 2016

Weave your way into this trend

During my LA trip this past weekend I spent a whole day shopping, and I couldn't help but notice an abundance of jacquards, brocades, and other tapestry-style fabrics. In a world of Gucci-inspired grandma chic, furniture fabrics were bound to make a comeback, but this is far from the style of the curtain-wearing Von Trapp children.

LA Weekend

It's party time!

Sorry I've been a little out of it with blogging lately! It's been a busy few weeks where I've been gone almost every weekend, but I've finally caught up on blogging and fashion week and all that good stuff.

Vacation Recap | Dallas

September 7, 2016

Fighting on outside AT&T Stadium in Arlington

Fighting on from the Lone Star State

Hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day Weekend full of sun and relaxation! As for me, my dad and I headed to the Lone Star State for a fun weekend of football and barbeque. Other than DFW Airport, I've never been to Texas before, so I was quite excited to head there to watch my Alma Mater take on the Alabama football team at the Dallas Cowboys stadium. Okay, so the game didn't go over too well, but it was still fun!

What to Buy This Fall

September 5, 2016

Alice + Olivia | Carven | Lanvin | Miu Miu | Gucci

Everything to make this your most stylish fall ever

Happy Labor Day, loves! Hope you're all celebrating the holiday with a glass of rosé and an ocean view. Now that the official end of summer has come around, it's time to look forward to fall and start stocking up on new season essentials. I've rounded up eight of the biggest fall trends and curated my favorite pieces so you can shop all the must-have items in one convenient place!

September Wish List

September 2, 2016

Halogen beret | Fendi sunglasses | Paul & Joe blouse | Zara coat
Carven skirt | Stella McCartney purse | Zimmermann boots

Dreaming of the Seine in autumn

If I had a ticket to Paris for Fashion Week (hint to all you Parisian fashion houses that are no doubt reading my blog) I'd rock this chic look in a heartbeat. Call it boredom brought on by unemployment my recent graduation and current transitional period, but I've caught the wanderlust bug, and nothing sounds better than hopping on a transatlantic flight and strolling the Boulevard St. Germain. It doesn't help that berets and French schoolgirl vibes are totally trending for fall.
