I <3 NY

I’m so in love with this editorial from Paris Vogue. It has a 70’s vibe with a modern twist looking into the everyday life of a New Yorker but with Paris fashion.  This is defiantly going straight to my inspiration board.

Prabal Gurung for Target

by kristy

We all love getting a deal on an awesome designer piece. Prabal Gurung is following in the stylish footsteps of power house designers Jason Wu and Missoni, website by launching a collection of women’s clothing and accessories for Target. There will be about 80 pieces, pilule including necklaces, store earrings, handbags, dresses and blazers featuring Gurung’s statement prints and expert fits. Gurung says: “The collection is inspired by a girl’s journey through the different stages of love and the clothes she wears during each milestone—from the initial first crush all the way to the engagement. Both the apparel and accessories in this collection include pieces that can be worn for each of these occasions and more!”

On my wish list are those adorable (and I dare say comfortable looking) slight wedge sandals,  I want them in both colors (I’m a size 7 if you get there before me)!! With the great styles and wallet friendly prices, they are predicting a near instant sellout like Missoni’s for Target. February 10th is launch day, so mark your calendars ladies!

Giorgia Tordini

by kristy

When it comes to mixing pattern with pattern there are a few Do’s and Don’ts to getting it right. I don’t particularly like “Style Rules”, meningitis but you don’t want to look like you got dressed in the dark either. So, dosage if you are daring enough to give this look a try follow these simple…. guidelines.

  • For your first visually simulating pattern mixing try to stay in the same color story. This way the look is a bit more subtle, but still showing your sense of adventure.
  • Don’t go to ‘Matchy Matchy’ with your patterns. This in general is a good rule of thumb.
  • Do space out the patterns with neutrals. Don’t feel in order to pull this look off that you need to mix a pattern skirt with a pattern top. Try a pattern skirt with a solid blouse and a pattern scarf.
  • Don’t over do it with accessoires. You are already going to have a lot going on, so keep them minimal.
  • Do have fun with it!
