MCLV Style: NYFW

I’m going to preface this post by tell you that the word “cold” doesn’t even begin to capture the essence of the temperature while I was in New York last weekend.

Frigid.

Numbing.

Glacial.

I mention this because the fact that I’m (1) Twirling around Lincoln Center in these temperatures while wearing a dress, (2) NOT wearing gloves, a scarf, or hat, and (3) Still smiling, are likely going to be a major factors when my mother tries have me committed.

NYFW may have been my excuse to head back East, but my trip was really about catching up with friends. Not only has my high school best friend been a Manhattan resident for nearly a decade, a number of my fashion friends have made the move from San Francisco to New York in the past year.

It was great catching up with the crew at Style Lend and some of my favorite SF blogger babes who made the trip!

How do YOU stay warm during a polar vortex?

New York Fashion Week Street Style

Half the fun for spectators during Fashion Week is the street style. True, the fashion-oriented flock to Manhattan to attend fashion shows & exclusive soirees, but the sidewalks have become an extension of the catwalk these days.

Here are some of the fabulously attired fashion bloggers, celebrities, actresses, editors, and other sartorially gifted ladies and gentlemen striking poses in New York this past week. Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Fashion Week Round-Up

Now that Fashion Month has come to an end I wanted to show you some of the fun highlights from the shows in New York City, London, Milan, and Paris. As with my first Fashion Week post {How To Apply Fashion Week To YOU} this isn’t going to be a review of the collections but rather some fun fashion inspiration to get you in the mood to put together your own killer Spring looks.

OliviaPalermoFashionWeek

{You can always count on Olivia Palermo to pull together some fabulous looks for Fashion Week – She’s always one of the faces that I look for. Clearly she’s loving the prints trends for Spring as much as I am!}

LondonFashionWeekLeopardStuds

{I love animal prints and I’ve been drooling over all the gorgeous embellishments for Spring – From studs & sequins to brocades, embroideries & beading. Leopard print + studs? This jacket is basically my happy place!}

LondonFashionWeekBurberry

{Checking out what the models are wearing between the shows & to the Fashion Week parties is always a highlight for me. This shot of the stylish ladies who walked the Burberry show at London Fashion Week is a great one from Shit Models Say – I love all the zebra print flats & Mr. Bailey looks fabulous!}

FashionWeekCollage

{I adore these Fashion Week: The Real Show pictures from Glamgerous, so many gorgeous shots of colorful, fun accessories. Time. To. Go. Shopping.}

MilanFashionWeek

{This Milan Fashion Week shot is one of my favorites – I love the chic black & white look punctuated with fun details. Those shoes are KILLER!}

FashionWeekFriends

{Fashionable friends Anne-Catherine Frey & Peony Lim stick together. I love both of these looks: On the left the paler hues & sweet prints look great with the white studded mini Alexander Wang Rocco Duffle and on the right the bright, bold printed pants are taken to a new level with dramatic oxblood accessories. Great job ladies!}

MilanFashionWeekRedAndOrange

{Not only does she look AMAZING in red + orange, she also looks like she’s having a great time. Very refreshing!}

AimeeSong

{This is without a doubt my favorite Fashion Week photo. During Fashion Week we’re always seeing editors, actors, celebrities, models, bloggers, and fashion industry insiders looking head-to-toe perfect in thousands of dollars of borrowed clothes, and I for one find that to be somewhat discouraging. It’s so great to see someone who I look up to doing something “real” that we’ve all done – i.e. changing out of heels and into comfortable shoes after an event.}

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013 – Street Style & Front Row Fashion

Here we are, the final post from Spring 2013 Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Today we’ll be looking at some of the best street style from Fashion Month – The ladies really dress to the nines when it comes to being photographed at Paris Fashion Week.

I adore this look from head-to-toe! From the quilted motorcycle jacket to the striking black & white bag to the suede ankle boots. Well done!

This look is so sweet and retro I couldn’t help but love it. The contrasting colored tights and chunky velvet ankle strap sandals are my favorite part!

A dramatic black & white look with a splash of color is a great color scheme to work with and the sleek silhouette of this look is even more striking.

This outfit is all about the tan, double-breasted coat. I love a dramatic outerwear look like this!

A floral jumpsuit is just the thing in the Parisian parks when paired with a tan wrap-around belt and a striking coral Chanel bag.

This is one of the most stunning overcoats that I’ve seen in a while –  A stunning color with a fun, eye-catching brooch and a great retro vibe.

So chic & well put together! The bright, collared shirt dress paired with a sleek black leather jacket is a great pairing and suits her perfectly.

Karmen may be Estonian, but she’s got the French je ne sais quoi in spades. This layered black look is striking & eye-catching despite being monochromatic.

Such a stunning, Summery look – The floral maxi looks great paired with the white, cropped leather jacket and that Hermes Birkin bag is swoon-worthy.

One of my favorite Paris Fashion Week street style looks was from blogger Chiara Ferragni – This multi colored lace Chanel dress with nude accessories is chic, flattering, and timeless. She looks stunning!
