More Favorite Looks from the Second Half of NYFW

As promised, here are some of the outfits I loved from the latter half of New York Fashion Week. Let me know what you loved in the comments!

Just as before, all original, individual model photos are from New York Magazine, but PicJoinder’ed by me.

CAROLINA HERRERA

Remember how I said that everybody needed to go home after the knockout Christian Siriano show? Well, Carolina Herrera came back with a stellar vengeance. This collection is, without a doubt, my absolute favorite S/S 2015 collection. The white floral gowns are to die for.

The best dress that graced us with its presence during S/S 2015 New York Fashion Week:

This breathtaking gown truly is a crazy beautiful work of art. I can’t even begin to understand how CH was able to piece together what looks like abstract pieces of thick paper onto tulle.

Fashion Flashbacks of the Future Queen

It’s no secret that my ultimate style icon is the Duchess of Cambridge (better known as “Kate Middleton” in the United States). We will undoubtedly see her sport some lovely new outfits over the next three weeks as she, Prince William, and Prince George embark on a royal tour of New Zealand and Australia. But before the Duchess charms us with her charisma and charitable heart, I thought it would be fun to look back at some of her most (in my opinion) lovely outfits.

There are so many things to love about the Duchess’s fashion. She is confident, yet modest. She pays tribute to tradition, but with a modern twist. She wears high fashion labels, but wears “high street” brands more often than not.

She is not afraid to repeat outfits. She is not afraid to wear heels (and as a rather tall girl myself, I applaud her for that). She is not afraid to pop into a clothing shop and pick out her own clothes.

She is always smiling and always looks effortless.

She’s just like us. Except she lives in a palace, has a fleet of Land Rovers, has access to priceless jewels, and is befitted with the most gorgeous hair that only a princess could have.

Behind the Catwalk: the Best of New York Fashion Week

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is upon us! Here are some of my favorite looks and behind-the-scenes photos from NYFW so far. Most of these came from social media (Instagram and Facebook), while a few came from Women’s Wear Daily.

Warning: I’m a huge fan of sophisticated, princess-y, and classic styles. If I could have a combination of Kate Middleton’s wardrobe and Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe, I would be happier than a bird with a french fry. This photo gallery probably reflects that.
