Through My Eyes: Inspiration from NYFW

Hello Fabulistas! You know that New York Fashion Week was one of my favorite things about September. The fashion world has moved onto London Fashion Week, but I’m still finding lots of inspiration in all the images from NYFW. Like I mention all the time, one of my biggest inspirations is fashion! There are more than enough looks to keep me satisfied until the shows next season.

Ruffles galore at Zac Posen

My style is all kinds of fun, feminine and fab. It’s almost like Zac Posen is my fashion design spirit animal! His looks are always so gorgeous. They manage to be both structured and flowing. There’s something very architectural about this particular ruffles dress. Plus, the color is a wonderfully fresh take on all the emerald green we’ve seen for fall. I can’t wait to look for accents in this feminine green-gray.

(Not-so) old Hollywood at Rodarte

The clothes at Rodarte are not always my style. However, I adored all the layers of 80s Hollywood glam that went into this collection! Check out that hair! You know, zebra print is really working as an edgier alternative to leopard print. I find myself incorporating the print into so many projects now.

Exemplary mixed prints at Victoria Beckham

I’m never left wanting more when I see Victoria Beckham’s line each season. She keeps us all on our chic toes! I’ve seen so many prints thrown together lately that I’ve started to get print fatigue. This look gives me hope, though! I adore the color combination and near seamless transition between the prints. This is what I’m aiming for when I approach prints.

Yellow and black at Oscar de la Renta

Even though I’m a big believer in bright colors, sometimes I hesitate in pairing yellow and black. Sometimes it comes off reminding me of sports teams. This Oscar de la Renta look has forever changed my opinion on the combo! Next time I’m tempted to go for gold and black, I’m going to think back to this image for inspiration instead.

Layers of lace at Wes Gordon

Lace has always been one of my favorite fabrics. Add in a dash here or there and you have instant glam! It’s so versatile, too. Maybe I just adore yellow right now, but I can really get behind this hue of the feminine accent.
