Walk Your Walk
Fashion Week is an iconic time of the year for me. Amidst the hell season called midterms, the fashion gods have gifted me with stunning Fall 2017 collections created by my favorite designers. Bloggers, such as Aimee Song (my all-time favorite blogger) and A-List celebrities walk (Kylie Jenner and the Hadid sisters) and watch these shows to show appreciation for the geniuses behind the pieces they will all be wearing this fall. Today, I’m here to talk about some of my favorite pieces from this season’s Fashion Week in NYC and Paris.
Fendi: Red Is the New Black
Red is one of those colors I think encompasses everything I want to be: classy, bold, and stunning. I only wish I could work it. Red just isn’t a complimenting color for me, but I can still stare and drool at Fendi’s uh-maaaazing red pieces, right? Just look at how the shapeless sweater just works with those skin-tight, thigh-high leather tights. And don’t even get me started on how the semi-sheer dress just flows.
Alexander Wang: Keeping Black, Black
Alexander Wang is one of my favorite designers. He loves black just as much as I do. No one would think an oversized blazer could look good, but somehow A. Wang made it look high-fashion. I’m also not a huge fan of bell-sleeves, but how could you resist that outfit? Where is my fairy godmother to put this in my closet? Asides from being one of my favorite designer, he is one of the funniest and straight-up people out there. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Just follow his Instagram.
Marc Jacobs: Neutrals Only
Marc Jacobs is also one of my favorite designers. When I walked into the little shop on Newbury Street for the first time, I knew I had to have one of his minimalistic watches, so as a little 16-year-old girl, I got my first designer watch. Now, I’m always keeping my eye out for their Fashion Week pieces. This year’s is absolutely adorable. Neutrals are everything to me, and Marc just made horse-back riding work seamlessly with fashion. The tassel, satin, and fur make me want to be this extra every day.
Balmain: Extra is Better
Now, in my dictionary, the definition of extra is Balmain. And no, extra is not bad. Extra is good. It is great. That’s why Kim Kardashian is pretty much a Balmain muse. I will always choose to be overdressed than underdressed. Suede, fur, and leather all in one outfit. Jewels, mesh, beads, leathers all in another outfit. You can’t get more extra than that. The best part is, they don’t even clash. They all complement each other. And, that leather and fur wrap coat? I have a suede fur vest that I can’t wait to rock in Paris this fall, but I have to say, this coat trumps it.
