Shake Your Bootie

Okay so first I would like to address the completely cheezy title.
Yes it's kind of rediculious, but I couldn't help it!

Moving on, I love booties for the fall time!
I've been on the hunt for awhile now but haven't found anything that really catches my eye.
I feel like booties are perfect for the fall time, and especially now in this weird transition period.
I'm not ready to wear my tall boots yet, but booties?  I think I can rock them.

Shake Your Bootie

Of course brown and black are the go-to classic colors for boots.
I think it's completley necessary for a girl to have both in her closet.
But how beautiful are the cobalt French Connection booties?
They would add the perfect pop of color to any outfit during the dreary winter months.
I may just have to order those!

Are you a bootie kind-of girl?

Sunday Snapshot [9.15.13]

This week was insane.
The first week of school is always the hardest.
Like it's my senior year of high school and I was expecting my classes to be chill with like little homework...but boy was I wrong.
I don't think I've ever had more homework and assignments in my life.
And this school homework with SAT homework and working on college applications combined makes me want to cry.

So as you can expect, I haven't been keeping up with NYFW as much as I hoped to.
Hopefully I'll have time tomorrow after my SAT class and homework to raid Style.com's pictures.
In the mean time, these 3 minute videos have been just enough to satisfy my Fashion Week craving.

Happy Sunday!

NYFW Day 2: Thursday 9/6/13

Okay, day two of fashion week recap - here we go!

Zimmerman - I love the silhouette of the bottoms in these; especially the last two - the 'paper bag' bottoms are kind of amazing.

Carmen Marc Valvo - All I have to say about this these looks is look at that hair.  No me gusta.

Nicole Miller - Filled with lots of patterns and geometrical shapes, I found her collection very playful,  yet sophiciated.

Rebecca Minkoff - These outfits look effortless yet put together at the same time.

Peter Som - I loved how structured some of the pieces were like the boxy jacket and striped top.  I also really like his use of patterns and shapes.

Jason Wu - Jason never disappoints.  His collection was beautifully put together with minimalist aesthetic that is just perfection.

PS - sorry for the incredibly all over the place post today.

Hello NYFW

Finally!  It's my favorite week of the year!
Which unfortunaly always conincides with my least favorite week of the year.  It's NY Fashion Week as well as the week school starts (well, at least not until Monday).

So it's Fashion Week and where am I?  Not roaming the streets of the city filled with bloggers, magazines editors, and celebs.  I'm sitting in the libary in my suburban town in New Jersey working on SAT homeowrk and writing college essays.

I've literally never felt more stress than I do now.  Just finishing up summer work and applying to colleges alone gives me an ample amout of anxiety.

So Fashion Week has come at the perfect time...or what could be the worst.  It will provide a great distraction - which could either turn out incredibly great or incredibly horrible.
Already I put down my SAT book to check style.com.  #noselfcontrol

To furter my complaining, I'm completely irked that Anna Wintour canceled Fashion's Night Out this year.  Of course it was probably the only year I would be able to go since the past two years it fell on the first day of school and next year I'll be at college.  Oh Anna...it was my one chance to be a part of NYFW and now it may never happen.

I was really hoping to go into the city today to just hang at Lincoln Center and people watch.  But no...I'm a high school senior with a 'To-Do' list bigger than Texas.  What's a girl to do?

I'll just stop complaining and show you some of my favorite looks from last night and today.

Erin Fetherson - OMG I'M IN LOVE.  There are some great prom worthy looks as well as some more sophiciated piees like the black and white floral dresses.

Robert Rodriguez - I love the boxyness of the pieces in this collection and the knee-high sandals - so trendy!

ZAC by Zac Posen - I can totally see a New York socialite wearing these gowns.

BCBGMAXAZRIA - Favorite piece from this collection is the strappy black and floral top in the third picture.  It's the perfect balance between edgy and girly.

Nicholas K - Neutrals are the name of the game in this collection.  Love the nomad/Native American feel it holds.

10 Crosby Derek Lam - Black and whtie is so classic.  I'm obsessed with the tribal print.

Tadashi Shoji - So girly, so feminine, so perfect.

Talk to you tomorrow!
