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.

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.

DO YOU SEE THOSE LONG HEMLINES?! This is a tall girl’s dream come true! Continue reading
As of Sunday, so many beautiful ensembles had made their way down the runway at New York Fashion Week that I decided it was already time to make a “favorite looks” post. I selected my favorite outfits from Christian Siriano, Monique Lhuillier, Jason Wu, Thakoon, Kate Spade, Lacoste, Prabal Gurung, DVF, Rebecca Minkoff, Alexander Wang, and more (see, I told you it was a lot!). The rest of my favorites will show up this weekend.
All original, individual model photos are from New York Magazine (but if it’s any consolation, I did divide and Picstitch them together myself!).
(L to R) ALEXANDER WANG, ALEXANDER WANG, DEREK LAM
All of it. I want all of it. I need all of it. I MUST HAVE ALL OF IT. <swoon>
<faints> Christian Siriano wins NYFW. Everybody else can just go home.

Oh, the gingham outfit is positively precious, and the model is gorgeous.

Does the name sound familiar? It should. Thakoon designed Emma Stone’s effortlessly flawless pink gown for this year’s Met Ball.
I had high hopes for Prabal Gurung. Unfortuately, for the most part, I was disappointed.

One of the coolest things about Instagram is that it’s become a place for designers, models, celebrities, and bloggers to post photos from behind the scenes at fashion shows. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite looks and behind the curtain snapshots from New York Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2015 looks.

More photos from Fashion Week – including my favorite looks – to come!
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.

I normally don’t like v-necks, but this Oscar de la Renta gown is princess-y perfection. Photo via Women’s Wear Daily.
Black and white was a major component of Reem Acra’s RTW F/W collection. I love the simpleness of the white skirt. Photo via Women’s Wear Daily.

This looks like something out of Olivia Pope’s closet. I love the detailing on the jacket. Appropriately enough, this ensemble is part of Alice + Olivia. Photo via the designer’s Facebook page.
This Alice + Olivia skirt is gorgeous. I love the fabric, the length, and the dash of glamour. Photo via Alice + Olivia’s Facebook page.
The structure and and simplicity of this Narcisco Rodriguez white coat is swoon-worthy. The length is a little odd, but this seems like a piece that you could wear season after season. Photo via Women’s Wear Daily.

This whole outfit is beautiful, but the copper top really steps it up a notch. Photo via Badgley Mischka’s Facebook page.

Dramatic, but still somewhat reserved. I love everything about this Zac Posen creation. Photo via Zac Posen’s Facebook page.
