As you might already know, New York Fashion Week is wrapping up, with only one more day left!
As promised, I’m going to discuss my favorite looks on and off of the runway! (And yes, these are screen shots from Insta, because that was the fastest accessible way to see these amazing garments.)
First, let’s just talk about J.Crew’s Spring 2014 show-holy mother of beautifulness. Talk about some GORgeous clothes-Jenna Lyons, J.Crew’s creative director really outdid herself this year. J.Crew is known for always being classy, but with a fun edge-and always looking so cool and effortless. This year was no different, I mean look at those colors-a pastel lime green paired with a pink sherbet, so chic. I especially love the look to the right in the second photo-that Aloha t-shirt with that AMAZING sparkly skirt really is a wonder. I CAN NOT wait for this line to be available in stores.
Next, can we just all gasp at the amazingness in this Badgley Mischka dress. BM always has stunning dresses, this just happens to be my absolute favorite. The way that the lace looks 3D and accentuates the models curves really does make for a perfect dress.
Next up, Falguni and Shane Peacock-I had honestly never heard of this designer, but now I know. I’m loving cascading feathers at the moment, and I love how they made this sequin dress have a faded plaid and feathers. Just amazing. I also love how the neckline is so high, yet it’s balanced with an up-to-there slit-perfection.
Following along with more feathers is Mathieu Mirano. I love how the top of this dress is so modern yet so classic with gold and red. I usually like small, skinny feathers but I LOVE how large and beautiful these feathers are. I also love how the feathers create the bottom of the dress along with a very sheer layer of fabric, so flattering.
Always a favorite, Zac Posen has done it again. I am hands down IN LOVE with this gown-it really is so perfect.
And it’s still all about sequins and feathers! I As I said before, I ADORE skinny, cascading feathers, so this is definitely a beauty in my opinion.
The beading on not only this gown, but all the clothing behind it is simply stunning!! It really does make for a flattering palette on any skin tone.
(I’m not sure why this is so tiny…)
But regardless, this Proenza Schouler is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous!! I seriously can not get over it. I’m obsessed!
“Oscar does the best greens”-is what @Oscarprgirl said, and it looks to be true. I love this dress, but what I love even more is the fact that Bill Cunningham is sitting front row and looking oh-so-charming as always. (remember my post about him a few months ago?)
Ahhh, Rachel Zoe does it again. To me these are just like the not-so-sweat pant I blogged about a while ago, but a more glamified version. So great.
Not only were the clothes at Lela Rose so pretty, but the hair-THE HAIR. Styled by Ted Gibson, gold flakes with messy low updos looked oh-so-fab. Maybe I can re-create this somehow in a tutorial…
Backstage at Nanette Lepore, this blue/white-cream dress is so chic. I love how the structure is simple yet so flattering!
IN LOVE with this Alice Olivia dress. I love how big and bulky the straps are, but then how pretty and delicate the bottom skirt part is-a great combination for an evening gown.
Not only do I love the bottom of this Tracey Reese, but the shoes are 2.DIE.4!!! Normally I’m not a super strap heel lover, but these are amazing.
So obviously NYFW is about designers debuting their Spring collections, and for some debuting their first ever collection. But to me, fashion week is so much more. It’s a week were fashion icons, editors, It girls and bloggers come together to discuss and meet and talk about what they think is “in fashion”.
Ultimately though, fashion week is about the outfits that are OFF the runways-also known as, Street Style. This year, since I was able to attend fashion week I got to see first hand some AHHHMAZING outfits.
Through Street Style, you can really see what trends will be upcoming and in. Below are a few of my favorite Street Style outfits and trends

Simply Fabulous Outfits:
I love the outfit below to the right simply because Bill Cunningham loves it, as seen in the background.
That’s all for now lovelies! If I see any more amazing street style pictures and/or runway pics, I’ll be sure to post them!
