Hello Fashion Week! It's my dream to go to New York Fashion Week someday. I received my first invite this year, but since it was only for one show and since the owners for Shore weren't making the trip, I also had to miss out on the festivities. Someday though. Someday I will be there checking it out in person. Until then, I will continue to check out the shows and love on everything that is coming up on my favorite blogs. The Cut is my absolute favorite. So after peeking through all of their amazing content, I have picked some of my favorite looks from the weekend. I'll start first with some of the shows and second, some of my favorite street style looks.
Alexander Wang showed my favorite collection from Spring 15. I want a pair of those amazing fitting, high-wasited pants so much. The dresses are cute, girly and structured. All things I love. And I am never one to hate on a crop top. I understand that some people love fashion because it is art, and I can appreciate that perspective. But for me, clothes need to be wearable AND fun. I love that I could actually wear these pieces.
GINGHAM EVERYWHERE! I love the mix of prints and the girly gingham in Altuzarra's Spring line. I will definitely be emulating these outfits. I can't wait to see more of the front slit on skirts out in the real world where I am able to buy them. I love how sexy it is, but keeping it more demure with the length. I also love that the high-waisted black slack is seen here and in Alexander Wang. The mixed printed top and skirt might be my go to for classier events this Fall. And how cute is the sheer top over the gingham top?! Love this.
BCBG surprised me with their line this year. I haven't loved what they've been doing in past seasons, but I really liked some of the looks in this show. I'm glad the girly, flowy look is being seen more. I am not a menswear inspired lover with the exception of a few staples like a nice jacket, tailored slack or cute loafer. I think the oversized, baggy thing is not flattering on most women and am happy to see the clothes moving in more of a structured or girly direction. I am not a fan of the gaucho pants in the last picture, but want the jacket so much I had to include the image.
Christian Siriano is the real thing. I have always thought very highly of him after his run on Project Runway and am so happy to see him flourish and thrive in the ways that he has. Don't tell Danny, but someday, I want the second image to be my wedding gown. I love it that much. I am also really happy to see how much stark white is on the runways this season. It is one of my favorite colors to wear and I am definitely wearing a ton of white this spring.
Oh Mara, how I love thee. Mara is my girl, but this is not my favorite line she has put out. It is in stark contrast to what she released for Resort 15 and just not quite doing it for me. There are always pieces that I love (and will own), but not as many as in the past. On a positive note though, go ahead and make one of these for me.
I love this line. Joie always keep it classy and sophisticated. Maybe it's how perfect these dresses fit this model or maybe it's because I have so many weddings to attend this year that I still need dresses for, but I love these <3

Overall, the best part about fashion is displaying who you are. My clothes are an expression of who I feel like I am that day. It's fun to look at what's out there and what people are wearing to get ideas about what I want to be in the future. Sometimes I emulate their looks, sometimes I hate what they wear or sometimes I add a little of their style to mine. Fashion is fun. I hope y'all have an amazing week. See you soon!
P.S. I was not at Fashion Week and have gotten all the images I used are from The Cut.
