NYFW – Tadashi Shoji Spring/Summer 2019

The Tadashi Shoji Collection for Spring/Summer 2019 was about hope. From the dress styles, to the choice of fabrics to the intricate design details and, most of all, the message of hope, I loved everything about it! The collection was elegantly glamorous, pretty and magical.

Inspired by “going to space” and a future that is ” bright and star-filled”, the looks were gleaming, sparkly and ethereal with the use of glossy fabrics, sequins and flowy draping technique. The colors ranged from white to bold hues to vivid darkness to reflect the mystery and depth of space.

Dresses for a modern day (read: strong and sophisticated) princess, this was one of those collections where I wanted to wear all the pieces! A girl can dream, right?!

The two dresses below are probably my faves of the collection. Completely my style for a dress, they are more understated yet intricately detailed and look very flattering.

Below are my other faves of the collection. As I’m writing this post though, I’m tempted to add the rest of the collection to this grouping. All so pretty!

NYFW – KÛR Spring Summer 2019

Look 7 from the KUR Spring Summer 2019 Runway Show

Whether it’s in New York or Paris (haven’t attended LFW or MFW yet!), one of the things I love about attending fashion week is the opportunity to discover amazing new designers and brands. KÛR by Kasuni Rathnsauriya is one of these brands.

During NYFW this past week, I attended the KÛR show for Spring Summer ’19. Founded in 2009, this clothing line is not new but was new to me. For this season, the collection, referred to as “Compact Traveller”, represented a blend of professional and off-duty looks. Per the show notes, “From office to urban adventures, this is the ‘new way she travels’.” Continue Reading →

Things To Do In NYC Before Summer Is Over

The end of summer always comes faster than I want it to and this summer is no exception! There are still lots of things on my to-do list including some things that were purely for entertainment like taking the time to enjoy NYC. If you’re from the area or familiar with NYC, then you know that summer is a weird time here. Compared to the rest of the year things actually seem to slow down (just a little at least) as many of its residents as well as regular population take off for long weekends to the beach and other vacay destinations. I, on the other hand, love to take advantage of this time to appreciate the city when the mood is a little more relaxed. Also helps to be free of all the layers required during the cold weather seasons… 😉

Fortunately, we still have a few weeks left of summer weather. So if you’re in the area, here are my fave things to do in NYC right now.
