Last night, some Keaton Row stylists and I attended the Minds Matter charity event hosted at the gorgeous venue Hudson Terrace. We were representing KR and Trendseeder, a start-up company that specializes in selling up-and-coming designers. The other stylists and I served as models for a few of the Trendseeder designer’s Spring fashions!
I was lucky enough to meet the co-founders and creative minds behind the designs that I wore from SPOON fashion: Randi Spoon and Alexis Przybylski Lawton. Thank you, ladies, for letting me borrow your lovely pieces for a night!
Read more about this fun event and collaboration here on the Keaton Row blog. Thank you to KR and Trendseeder for letting me be a part of the event!

I think one of the sexiest things a woman can wear is a suit – when I see a perfectly cut suit with an androgynous vibe and covered-up sex appeal… I die. I am particularly swooning over short-suits for Spring (a trend that is still in motion from last year), which can easily be dressed up or down (note street style with Converse below). Plus, I love the various colors, prints, and textures that make an updated, modern suit for women… Scroll through this post for a little suit-inspiration for Spring:
Here is a round-up of some of my favorite collections from the runways in Milan – what were some of your favorites? To see my London Fashion Week favorites, click here. For my New York Fashion Week round-up, click here.
I have to say that I wasn’t blown away by the collections shown at LFW for Fall 2013, but there were definitely some looks that I loved. Here is a quick round-up of some of my favorites. Tell me what you think in the comments!
Round two of the “Wear Now, Wear Later” series (read the first post here)… I chose a pretty, floral maxi dress from Michael Kors because it’s just so hard to resist the gorgeous Spring-inspired pieces hitting the stores now (and oh, did I mention it’s only $112! Link to purchase below). So if you gave in and purchased a flirty, floral dress (or even if you have been pulling one of your own closet to just look at and long over) here are some ways to get the most mileage out of your traditionally Springy dresses/skirts.
Look 1: One styling trick I love is to layer cozy knits over your favorite flowy dresses and skirts in the cooler months. (Because the skirt is long and loose, you can also add tights or leggings and no one will know… shh, our secret). Add an ankle bootie and a modern, chic army jacket to keep the look young and fresh.
Look 2: When the weather finally warms, ditch all those extra layers and let the dress speak for itself. Strappy sandals work best under a voluminous skirt and simple gold jewelry will add the right amount of glitz.
The evolution of metallicsfrom just a pocket watch or a bauble around a woman’s neck to ready-to-wear pieces (Celine, Burberry, Matthew Williamson, DVF) is a truly beautiful thing. Lately I have been particularly drawn to metallic footwear, in all shapes and styles with a gold, silver, rose gold, copper or bronze glimmer. Here is a round-up of some of my favorites right now… enjoy!
Choosing top collections from the Fashion Week lineups is no easy task, so despite my best efforts I am sure there are designers and looks that I truly love that aren’t on the following list… Please tell me in the comments who your favorites were from NYFW. So without further ado….
3.1 Phillip Lim
This collection teaches us the true art of layering in the winter… An expert mix of colors and fabrics.
BCBG Max Azria
Love the rorschach-esque patterns, the fluid fabrics, and the leather legs.
Inspired by Russia… Siriano’s collection represents the luxe lady that I hope to someday be.
The makeup and the shoes are to die for… As always, Wu expertly blends feminine and dark elements.
Cool moss green combined to form unexpected color palettes… This collection looks effortlessly chic.
Marc by Marc Jacobs
This collection is reminiscent of the late 70s, with rich colors and the styling is absolutely perfect.
Graphic, sporty… This collection pushes the envelope, while remaining very wearable.
Perfect mix of hard and soft with a nod to military… beautifully done.
I’m a sucker for black and white everything, and it is done flawlessly here. Interesting cuts and fabrics, and can I please wear that white dress for my nonexistent wedding?
Love the fabrics and how well they are cut… Another perfect example of effortless chic.
More fashion week updates to come… Have a wonderful weekend!

Whatever the occasion, here are a few V-Day inspired outfits you can wear this week. Personally, I like subtlety on holidays… You won’t find me wearing jeans dotted with a heart print or a pullover with cupid plastered on the front (do they even make this?), so here are some understated ways to incorporate the love this week…
Office: Try going bold with red trousers and a ridiculously-cool tee. Adding a structured blazer pulls the look together. Luxurious touches like a gold cap-toe pump, a rich leather bag, and a menswear-inspired watch keep it classic and elegant.
Dinner Date: If you and your someone are going out to eat, opt for a classic black/white dress with just a slight nod to the heart symbol. Add statement earrings and a pop of red with your bag to make the look extra special.
Valentine’s Day Brunch: Whether you are hitting a cool brunch spot with your girlfriends or grabbing a bite with your man, a pretty lace pencil skirt gets a cool modern update when paired with a chambray and brogues. Add heart-shaped touches like diamond earrings and a patent pouch to stay on theme.
Staying In: If you are cooking dinner or lounging for V-day (because you are poor like my man and me), then all you need is just a pop of pink to spice up your usual basics. Add a stack of gold bracelets and trendy loafers to pull this classic look together.
What is your v-day plan and how will you dress for the occasion? Tell me in the comments!
