#6 Dior RTW Autumn-Winter 2014 Runway Video

Rihanna, Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, Camille Rowe, and many more turned out for the Dior ready-to-wear show. Rad Simons had the stars and all their scenes tingling with the opening seconds of his Dior fashion show. The set was like a light-filled dream with the overhead landscape of spotlights radiating in an ever changing color spectrum.


The video is very futuristic, from the electric music to the switch between fast passed and slow motion. The Dior women appears in the bright light of an urban space and walks with a powerful energy through an illuminated ‘city’.

I wanted to approach the idea of the city as an abstraction, it is how I perceive the world of the city in this collection

Raf Simons explains.

It is the idea of the romantic and the real, a world of possibilities


#5 Window Shopping

I know I’m not the only one dreaming about warmer weather, and all the new spring windows are getting me more and more anxious!
Back home on Long Island this weekend I found some time to do some window shopping at the Americana. With a hot coffee in hand, I set out to piece together my spring wardrobe inspiration.

I started at my all time favorite, J. Mendel, where pretty pink pastels were showcased draped in winter white furs because spring is not here just yet.

Next window down the Miracle Mile was Brunello Cucinelli where I saw more neutral, dusty tones, perfect for any day of the week.

Around the corner at Intermix the huge window was full of black & white with touches of pale blue and an illusion of a bright blue spring time sky. What’s there not to love?

The Prada window showcased an awesome blue coat paired with neutral handbags and sandals

And more blue… I think I’m noticing a pattern!
