10 Best Dressed of the Emmys Red Carpet

To kick off Awards Season I have picked my favorite looks from the 2013 Emmys Red Carpet.  As always, the fashions of the red carpet did not disappoint and in fact it was a full on glam fest!  After compiling my list I realized that there are some serious trends that define my 10 best: nudes/neutrals, sheer, laser cuts, open backs, and cut outs.  None of this comes as a surprise, because I love these trends in ready-to-wear so why wouldn’t I love them as red carpet looks, but it is wonderful seeing the translation.  So how does your list stack up next to mine?  Who were your favorites from the red carpet?

Leather Track Pants

Welcome to part two of my incredible Fashion Week experience.  To kick off fashion week I went for leather track pants and my go to classic black and white.  I must admit, I was skeptical about the leather track pant, I mean it is a pretty strange combo.  The name, “track pants” implies you are on your way to the gym probably in the 90s, but the track pant is no longer reserved for the gym and is now found on runways and thank God for that because the last thing I would ever want to do in these pants is work out……holy hotness!  Once I realized these pants are really just an oxymoron, I was able to embrace them to the fullest extent and not surprisingly fell in love.

Behind the Scenes of my NYFW Experience

Spring/Summer 2014 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was absolutely epic!  I would go as far as to say that this has been the most groundbreaking fabulous fashion week of all time.  I am slightly biased though, as this was my first time actually attending fashion week, and it was every bit as magical as I thought it would be!  I saw some gorgeous, life changing shows and presentations and had the opportunity to meet some legendary style icons.  Basically, I had the most wonderful time ever!  I hope you enjoy my snapshots from my two days of ecstasy and please forgive the less crisp pics, this is NYFW as captured through my phone.

I also need to give a special thank you to Zeba Rashid, Anne Caruso, and Dena Giannini.  You made my epic fashion week whirlwind possible!  I can NEVER thank you enough!

 TADASHI SHOJI

Tadashi ShojiThe first show I attended for NYFW (and ever) was Tadashi Shoji.  This was the most incredible way to kick off fashion week!  His designs are elegant, modern, and effortlessly beautiful!  It was full of show stoppers, which was not surprising at all, but absolutely breathtaking.

REBECCA MINKOFF

I legitimately had goosebumps throughout the entire Rebecca Minkoff show–being in the second row probably had something to do with this too!  Janelle Monae opened the show and performed throughout setting the scene for a truly incredible experience for the audience.  The show was full of energy, color, prints, and the most fierce gladiator sandals EVER!

HONOR

I must admit this Fashion Week was my first introduction to Novis and I am beyond obsessed! I literally wanted everything shown in the presentation!  The presentation was made up of vibrant colors and prints, sheer accents, and basic yet fabulous pieces!  Obsessed is really the only word I have for the Novis presentation.

TOME

I stalked Louise Roe after the Rebecca Minkoff show and she was kind enough to take a pic! She said I looked chic and I almost died!

Aimee Song

Aimee Song (Song of Style) is another style icon of mine! She is fabulous and was so friendly!

Fashion Police

I am a HUGE Fashion Police fan and meeting George Kotsiopoulos was an absolute dream come true! He was so sweet & wonderful!

New York Fashion Week (pt 1)

In case you missed my obsessive instagrams and tweets, I attended the first two days of New York Fashion Week and it was one of the most incredible experiences EVER!  I saw some beautiful, life changing fashion shows & presentations and was endlessly inspired by the unparalleled street style that can only be witnessed at Fashion Week.  Stay tuned all week for a rundown of my fashion week experience with runway pics from Tadashi Shoji, Rebecca Minkoff and Honor, exclusive looks from the Novis and Tome presentations, as well as party pics and some phenomenal celebrity sightings!  To start off my week of coverage check out what I wore to Day Two of Fashion Week.

Romping Around

One of my absolute staples for every season and every occasion is the romper.  The romper, also known as the jumpsuit is just perfection and shockingly versatile!  While I will admit going to the bathroom in a romper can be challenging it is not enough of a deterrent to turn me away from this show stopping piece.  As with most things I post about, fit is crucial!  Rompers ARE for everyone, but make sure to find the silhouette that flatters your body, paying close attention to where it sinches, the leg width, and the cut of the bust line.

This is the last photo shoot from my trip to Hawaii and holy moly do I miss it! I mean, how beautiful is this sunset!
