Blue + Red

I'm pretty sure that I have said it before, but I have many favorite color combinations that I like to see styled together. Sometimes, my eye is just automatically drawn to these colors and it happens in a natural state.

That being said, the combination of baby or powder blue and bright red is a favorite of mine.

The Fall Collections- Part 2

{Dolce & Gabbana}

I honestly wanted to do a cartwheel with a back flip for EVERY single piece of clothing that went down the runway, in this beautiful D&G collection! The inspiration taken from the old world renaissance and baroque style was beautifully transformed into a modern day feminine style. It is just breathtaking!

Just like Veruca Salt, I WANT IT ALL!





Usually there are maybe a handful of pieces within a collection that you would proudly wear on the street, with this Dolce & Gabbana collection, I swear I would wear every single piece!

{Alice and Olivia}

Another usual favorite of mine, Stacey Bendet never disappoints with her vintage inspired aesthetic and pretty color combinations.





{Kate Spade}

Anytime I see anything Kate Spade, it makes me happy, warm and fuzzy inside- always!






{Prada}

1960s inspired cuts, bold color and geometric patterns.






{Ferragamo}

Military style coats, that were inspired by the uniform of the World War II solider.





{Valentino}

One word: Romance






Oh I suppose I could go on and on and on, so I will only post a few more. There was just so much goodness and style happening, with so many designers. Over all, there were several beautiful collections, that did an amazing job incorporating inspiration, elements and silhouettes from the past and owning it! The 1960s era and feminine details were huge on the radar this year and I am, well...happy about that! Here are a few more short snaps...

{Chris Benz}

Another colorful show, that was inspired by the ladylike-ness of the 1960s.





{Elie Saab}


{Giambattista Valli}


{Kenzo}



{Isabel Marant}

A collection after my own Arizona girl heart! Isabel's collection was inspired by western wear fashions, ranch life and cowgirls. A modern take on the original 1940s gabardine western shirt, was in full force.




{Lela Rose}



{Jean Paul Gaultier}

An entire collection inspired by graffiti and street art (my husband was thrilled).



{DSquared2}

I just fell in love with the whole 1960s vibe of this collection, so fun!

Inspired

Hi Y'all

Happy Friday!

Over the many years, I have been collecting images in my head, of people who I have an admiration for, be it style or talent. I thought it was time to make some solid lists and start documenting them here, on my blog. Some of these people have been featured in previous post and some not, but they all catch my eye ( both old and new ). I am drawn to them for a common style aesthetic, certain ambitions, an interest we share, sheer talent or a just a bit of beautiful inspiration.

It dawned on me that I should do these types of posts more frequently, because I am inspired and allured by people all of the time! So here is my first official list of people.....

1. Iris Arfpel

2. Ulyana Sergeenko

5. Andre 3000

6. Shirley Kurata

7. Claudette Colbert

Stay tuned for another series of these list soon, I plan on getting around to jot these down more frequently.

I hope you all enjoy your weekends and have something fun planned!
