New York Fashion Week- Day 1

Yesterday was the first day of New York Fashion Week, and I kicked things off in the afternoon with the Tadashi Shoji show at Lincoln Center. For this transitional time between summer and fall I chose to attend wearing an achromatic color blocked casual outfit paired with a vintage clutch, festive snakeskin heels, and purple lip.

Tadashi Shoji likes to use his travels as the main source of inspiration when designing each collection. The Spring/Summer 2013 collection takes on a journey capturing the ultimate wanderlust. The first stop is Venice Beach for a vintage Venetian cuts and embroidered lace as seen in the opening look. The weather out west seemed to have an influence on the collections more casual looks-lace shorts and dreamy trapeze blouses. From there we travel eastward through the desert where, knee length dresses in electric blue and rose have a patchwork print. With the final stop being the ancient capital of Xi'an, that inspired the Victorian era-like sheer romantic tulle gowns.

  1. Recently I've been using this app called Mavatar on both my iPad and web browser that offers great deals on big name department stores. When you add items to your cart on department store websites the app compiles it all and adds all the available discounts to your purchase so you can get the best price possible. I totally recommend it and it's really easy to get started.
