Fashion Week Wrap-Up:Favorite Looks.

Fashion week was in full swing in NYC and the designers did not disappoint. The looks for Winter/Autumn 2016/17 were rich with deep plums, velvet and always the staple, black. Speaking of “Black”, there was a cry for more diversity on the runways recently and Bethann Hardison worked alongside Zac Posen in order to deliver what the people asked for. His models ranged in all hues of Black and were gracefully dressed in shades of plums and wines. The show was amazing. When we speak of diversity, don’t just look at Black and White but also think of body types and age. There were plus sized models (well just regular size in the world that we live in) and models who were over 30 in some shows this year as well. I think the direction that many designers are going in is just fantastic and all women should be celebrated. We are strong and resilient and all different and that is what makes us all so fabulous.

My Favorite Looks from the 2016/17 Runway:

JCrew (always young, fresh and clean).

Baubles, Baubles and More Baubles! These are some of the the best sites to find trendy and best priced baubles.

What is an outfit without a bold statement accessory? Most of us don’t have estate pieces from our great bandanna so what then? I suggest you visit the websites I’ve compiled below to and visit these brands for the greatest pieces of jewelry to compliment that casual white T or denim shirt that you will most definitely be rocking this Memorial Day weekend.

The RequiredFlare shopping experience delivers you a very “city girl” feel. You can find earrings, necklaces and bracelets but there is also a small selection of handbags and cute and trendy “hair flare”. There is free shipping for orders over $45 which is a bonus for the girl on a budget. http://www.Requiredflare.com
