Vogue, Alexa & A Documentry Series Oh My!

If you're and avid fashion follower like myself, this upcoming series featuring Alexa Chung is an absolute dream come true. Alexa, the fashion icon, darling, all around wonderful person, is the perfect person to dive into the fashion world.

Instead of focusing on just the big name designers the coming soon documentary series will also include students, journalists, workers, and buyers - everyone involved in the making of not only the clothes, but of the trends themselves. 

Keep an eye out for this series in September. I know I will be.

Best Of Bangalore Fashion Week 2015

Bangalore Fashion Week kind of slipped by without much comment. While obviously very much geared towards traditional aesthetics of the region I genuinely love peeking at these collections to see what the rest of the world are wearing. Here's a few favorites from this year's BFW. 

 Femininity was key at Rehane. Light and airy looks featuring a pastel color palette is is sweet without being saccharine. 

Gaurang Shah featured bridal looks for the modern age. Gorgeous fabrics, color and patterns... I would much rather wear this then a boring white gown don't you think?

Stunning two piece looks from Riya Kodali that are marine inspired. Love love love the middle look. Amazing!

A nice little fashion week to get you ready for the big ones coming up in September! Can you believe how quickly the season snuck up on us?

Unknown Scents

Forget celebrity perfumes and brand names. It's all about indie ateliers and masters of craft. Instead of splurging on a scent everyone and their mother owns (I'm looking at you Marc Jacob's Daisy), take a shot on these non household named brands. I must still have California on the brain as a lot of these chosen scents are beachy but my personal preferences aside most of these perfumeries have many gorgeous options. 

Allegra by RougeBunnyRouge $129 // Mermaid No 1 by Mermaid $50 // Amongst The Waves by Olivine Atelier $48 // Bluebell by Penhaligon's £88 // Treehouse Royal by Pinrose $50 // Dauphine by Goest $140 // City of Angels by Royal Apothic $38 // Surf & Soleil by Land Over Sea $28 each // Cote Des Palmes by Gourmand EDP Fragrance $18

Olive, I Love You

Now that we have a bit of down time until Fashion Month starts up in September I've put together a few posts on some fashion/beauty/etc favorites. Recently I've been rather obsessed with olive colored everything. Once a shade I used to despise as dirty looking and ugly, I now can't get enough of the greenish, grayish color. Like a neutral but never dull (in my opinion). From sweaters to skirts to accessories I want it all in olive! Funnily enough, I absolutely hate olive,the food, yuck. But olive, the color, is number one in my heart. 


Risatane Stretch Cotton Top by Theory from The Outnet $108 // Maxi Dress from H&M $15 // Cotton Shirt from H&M $30 // Waterfall Front Parka Jacket from Topshop $115 // Fringed Openwork T-Shirt from Mango $25 // Ribbed Wool Sweater by J.W. Anderson from The Outnet $187 // Les Essentiels Cassiopee Swimsuit by Eres from Net-A-Porter $490 // Tassel Shift Dress from H&M $40 // Draped Stretch-Crepe Wrap Skirt by Alexander McQueen from Net-A-Porter $1125

Favorites from Fall 2015 Couture

I'm so incredibly sorry I've fallen on the wayside with this blog! A bunch of crazy changes and things have been going on in my personal life and I just simply couldn't keep up and needed a bit of a break from the web. However, I should be back on track so I wanted to start with playing catch up on the Fall 2015 Couture shows.

Couture is typically my favorite fashion shows, simply because the designers usually bring the big guns, this year being no exception. Here are my favorites:

Elie Saab is always number one in my books. Normally I share three favorites but it was too hard to narrow it down so here's six. Behold, and swoon.

Regal and romantic, Ralph & Russo. Beautiful designs from the duo that scream royalty.

Midsummer's Night Dream meets seventies hippies is quite possibly the best way to describe Versace's couture collection. 

At Viktor & Rolf the models wear their art on their sleeves, skirts, and dresses. 

An out of this world, galactic, collection at Zuhair Murad  - so cosmic!  

Oh Couture, how I love you.

Paris Men's Fashion Week Day 3

A short little round up of the best of day three of Paris Men's Fashion Week featuring one of my favorites so far, color at Ann Demeulemeester!:

Riccardo Tisci described his Givenchy men's collection as "bad boys." Prison wear made chic. Jumpsuits, workwear, and prison stripes adorned the clothing in a very tailored and very very masculine way.

Loved the unique denim looks at Juun.J which had a nautical feel with a feminine flare.

Ann Demeulemeester is typically, well, rather gothic. Lots and lots of black essentially. So it was an absolute treat to see S├ębastien Meunier incorporate pops of color. Loved it!
