NYFW: Rebecca Taylor Gets An Edge For Fall 2013

Rebecca Taylor Fall 2013 Show

A snow storm couldn’t prevent the show from going on. However it’s melted remnants around the Highline Stage area of the meatpacking did pose a challenge for a chic shoe choice. Once off the slippery, soggy sidewalks, the crowd inside for Rebecca Taylor was buzzing. I overheard someone coming from backstage saying “it’s a really good kind of different for her, I think people will love it”.

Inspired by “The Winter You Froze Away” this show couldn’t have happened on a more fitting day.  Nemo was about to coat the streets of NYC while Color Club Nails, led by Simcha Whitehill aka Miss Pop, was coating the nails of the models for the Katie Gallagher show.  She started with a pointed nail (the freshest trend in nail shape that all the stars are rocking lately) then dotted the models nails with colors: Dove Grey (custom), Where’s the Soiree, Muse-ical, and Zodiac,  creating the stormiest nails

NYFW: Timo Weiland Fall 2013 Backstage & Runway

Timo Weiland Fall 2013 Backstage Beauty

Timo Weiland didn’t miss a detail in their Fall 2013 look. It started backstage where MAC artist Chantel Miller was priming skin to give it a soft sheen while being careful to not over do it, as the make up looks were inspired by “feminine tomboys”. Hair had a bit of volume and some subtle waves, a kind of careless texture that you would covet from the girl who doesn’t fuss too much courtesy of L’Oreal Professional stylist Joesph DiMaggio. Zoya was on the scene with their Pixie Dust polishes creating a nail look that

#GIVEAWAY: Win This Limited Edition FOTINI Scarf ($250 value)

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Cindy B. and @bethanymariebphoto-6

I LOVE my FOTINI scarf! So much so that I wore it in my recent Essie/BaubleBar Campaign (and it tied the whole outfit together). It’s been a staple in my wardrobe for the past few months and I don’t see that changing anytime soon — I’m convinced it’s season-less.  The limited edition scarf is made from 100% silk georgette. And the print was designed personally by Fotini herself and created in collaboration with RATTI the world’s leader in prints located in Como, Italy.

I’m giving TWO lucky readers a chance to win!

BCBG Max Azria Spring Summer 2013 Collection

-PC Fashion Corespondent, Tiffany Piñero of Tiffany Piñero Style

Nothing sparks the fire of New York Fashion Week like a major show to kick things off. A brand that is synonymous with majorBCBG Max Azria, brought the jolt you usually rely on from your extra shot of espresso first thing in the morning. Building on a subdued palette of neutral shades including nudes, clay, black, white and “color” coming from tones of coral, the vitality came from the mix of fabrics and touches of leather. Crepe, chiffon and lace graced many of the looks giving them a classic BCBG feel. However, it was the slightly aggressive pieces of textured fabrics that were formed in bondage-esq creations on top of many of the garments that gave an exciting and exotic feeling of newness. The danger in the edgy harnesses countered the romance of the flowing hemlines and soft fabric choices. The collection is a balance of ornate trends and glamorously wearable pieces, which is what we have come to love from BCBG.

NYFW: Catherine Malandrino Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Presentation

Catherine Malandrino presented her Spring/Summer 2013 Black Label collection, MAJESTIC this past Sunday. First off, every time I see Catherine, I’m struck by how stunning she is. Bringing her Parisian style to the world of sportswear the collection played with different shapes and textures ranging from leather and suede to crochet pieces mixed and matched in this wearable collection. The color palette went from pure white to pastels in the soft blue/green to purple range.

DEIVIE Spring/Summer 2013 Uh-Oh! Preview

Fashion week is in full swing!  And the lovely Michelle, blogger behind Amuse Bouche was nice enough to guest post for me and  cover the DEIVIE Spring/Summer 2013 collection on behalf of Pretty Connected!

###

Quite frankly you can never plan ahead when it comes to your wardrobe, am I right?! So getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 collections to see what’s ahead gets me one step closer. DEIVIE Spring/Summer 2013 Uh-Oh! preview has me excited for a playful mix pastels coupled with metallic accents!

The collection is inspired by the 60’s, specifically the movie Alfie — the remake with real life play boy Jude Law.  This upcoming collection includes custom embroidery details on Peter Pan collared shirts, ornate bugle bead belts cinching the waists of skirts and dresses, mini dresses with whimsical wave hemlines and embroidery to enhance the female silhouette.

Sugar and spice and everything nice when it comes to this collection.  Just like the candy they were serving out and snacking on. I mean, how can you resist a candy necklace?

Looks like metallics are here to stay! This season it’s the hottest trend for manicures and next Spring and Summer it’s the same game plan just mixed with soft hues and pastels.

Are you a fan of the modern take of the 60’s look? I am.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! Now get out there and BBQ, watch some fireworks and jump on my Vespa!

PC at Rebecca Taylor Spring 2012 RTW Collection

Rebecca Taylor was true to her reputation for S/S 2012 offering feminine, wearable dresses and separates that move with the body. Unfortunately, iPhone’s video capabilities and Fashion Week lighting are not a winning combination, but here’s a quick peak at the finale of the show:

“Inspiration is so ephemeral,” said Taylor, stating that she picked up her inspiration from a hodgepodge of places. Aiming to set a contemporary, fresh, and ethereal tone to the designs, the collection emphasizes cut and color with unexpected cut-outs in sibhouettes. This was reflected in her collection which mixed flowy materials and sparkly embellished tops, with some structured dark colored dresses. Also white, neon yellow, floral prints as well as a few dark black and blue pieces were thrown in, creating this disjointed palette. Although the collection lacks the drama and excitement of many runway shows, it is very wearable and I am sure the retails buyers were marking their favorites to display this Spring.

My two favorite looks from the collection included
