These are some of my favorite Victoria’s Secret Angels – I always look forward to seeing the fabulous Brazilian contingent – Alessandra, Adriana, and Izabel – As well as the super sweet Lily, Lindsay, Candice, and Behati. And of course, one of my all time favorite models, the statuesque and fabulous Karlie Kloss.

And of course, we can’t forget the lingerie-clad Taylor Swift!

Bay Area Fashion: FAST’s Spring Runway Show

In December I made my way to Berkeley to enjoy FAST’s Fall Runway Show and was really blown away by the professionalism and creativity of the show and the designers.

So with those high expectations I headed back to the UC Berkeley Campus last weekend for FAST‘s even grander Spring Runway Show.

And wow.

The depth and vision was truly unbelievable for such a youthful group of designers – They showed everything from perfect Spring frocks to enviable eveningwear to satirical modern takes on the #Selfie craze.

In a word – The show was exciting. You never quite knew what was going to come next.

Some of the highlights for me were the Giambattista Valli-esque floral applique on the white gowns shown by Yang Qu, the bright, bold prints that electrified Ponee Ka’s collection, the breathtaking florals & accordion pleats shown by Tina Xu, and the ornate drama of Wesley Yu’s perfectly styled Baroque inspired collection.

The production of the event was exceptionally well done – From the graphic displays on the runway itself to raffles & giveaways to heartfelt thank yous & speeches at the end.

The FAST crew has a bright future in event planning and I can’t wait to see what they do next!

San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO DIVERGE Runway Show

My favorite thing about being a blogger here in San Francisco is being able to get to know amazing local brands, designers, and stores. And being able to share them with you!

I initially met designer Candice Cuoco last September during San Francisco Fashion Week, right before she was named San Francisco’s Best Emerging Designer of 2013. And 2014 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for this up & comer as she just showed her first collection at New York Fashion Week in February and will be rocking London Fashion Week in September.

I even had the honor of wearing a made-especially-for-me couture leather look for New Year’s Eve this year – New Years Eve Leather.

Bay Area residents – I recommend that you get to know this amazing designer and her phenomenal work and attend the CCUOCO DIVERGE Runway Show!

San Francisco Designers: Snow 5

I recently attended the fabulous Snow 5 Runway Show at the Metreon here in San Francisco. A chic affaire featuring up-and-coming local designers and supporting the non-profit ‘GO’ which empowers women to escape poverty.

I was blown away by the five head-to-toe white collections that were shown, it was such a beautiful experience sitting in the huge, window filled room with a large white runway down the center and rows upon rows of fashion lovers all dressed in the color de jour – White!

Neide Hall started off the evening’s festivities showing a line of fabulous swimsuits, fun cover-ups, and vacation-ready resortwear for Charmosa Swimwear.

Carmen Baldwin’s CarMenchie offerings included everything from sweet retro-inspired cocktail dresses to elegant evening wear, all with great styling and bold neon peach shadow for the models.

Cana Klebanoff‘s androgynous, avant-garde menswear pieces were minimal but eye-catching. I could definitely see mixing & matching some of these separates for Spring 2014.

Dramatic textures & bold fabrics ruled the day for Joseph Domingo with iridescent fringe, feathers, bubbling ruffles, lace, and sequins all making an appearance.

And one of my favorites this evening was the chic, timeless collection shown by Julie Schindler – From smart skirt suits to stylish outerwear to the perfect little white dress – I would have worn every piece that made an appearance on this runway!

So what does one wear when the dress code is “dress to impress” and it’s an all-white theme?

First – Have a heart attack when you realize that as much as you adore Winter White you own none because you’re too pale to wear white. Second – Suck it up and head out into the rainy February night in a short Summer shift dress.

The things I do for fashion! 🙂

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!
