A forever classic song by the transcendent Lana Del Rey, but also my absolute favorite thing to wear. I know I’m living my best life when I’m in denim. It’s just the most timeless piece and I’m just obsessed with playing with the shapes and washes etc. This top was such a score! The second I saw it I knew I was in love! It has a flannel-like material that almost resembles a sweater, but in tee shirt form! It’s a tad big on me but I would never dream of passing up anythimg vintage tommy!! Also, this jacket is a fave because it has a slightly cropped fit and it really just sits right on the body! All in all I OBSESSED! Have a great week and stay fab!!

My favorite aspect of this denim jacket from H&M is the actual fit of it. I love how it has a military vibe that kind of elevates a simple outfit. When I pair it with denim, I don’t really care what wash my jeans are because the jacket is the perfect wash of denim that is super easy to work with. I haven’t pulled out my white converse in a long time, but I figured it would add a little classic touch to this look! I’m also sooooo head over heels for the tiny sunglasses trend. I honestly didn’t think it would last as long as it has, but I’m crazy happy that it has! I think it’s a very new and fresh way to really elevate any type of outfit! Have a great week and stay fab!

Ok but where the hell did September go??? It feels as if 2017 zipped by in a millisecond! Sometimes it blows my mind how fast time can fly! While it’s already October, things in Farmington are as bipolar as ever. In the day it’s hot and dry and at night it’s stormy and flooding! So at this point I’m just wearing whatever!
Can we take a moment to not just appreciate but oogle over this amazing vintage Nike mock neck top! I scored this gem at my town’s Salvation Army and I’ve been counting down the seconds until it’s cold enough to wear this! And it’s finally beginning to cool down enough! Not only do I love the design itself but the sleeves are slightly balloon-y which I’m sooo obsessed with! It’s going to be my go-to this Fall/Winter! So, onto the real star of this post, I ordered these Topman jeans about a week and a half ago and I received them the other day after tracking it’s every move. They were a steal for only $17, but not only that they’re such a modern, cool fit and style that I absolutely couldn’t resist! I’ve seen the white stitching on black denim style around lately, so I’m glad I finally hopped on the trend! I like to take pieces that are trending and mix them with an older more classic piece like the Nike top! I think it adds some great defining layers to an outfit! Have a great week and stay fab!!
Yes, it’s that silk shirt again! I honestly can’t help it sometimes, if a piece is really good I have to get a lot of use out of it! I believe that repeating pieces is nothing to be ashamed of, I think if you wear a piece once and never again after that, you’re not getting the full effect.
This particular shirt is one of my favorite pieces at the moment. It’s such a classic staple, but a little bit more elevated. I’d go as far to say that it’s the white button up I’ve been searching for my whole life! I love that in itself, it’s a statement piece that can be ever so versatile. Every time I wear these vintage Calvin Klein jeans I feel right at home. They’re soft, have a great fit, and hug me just right I’m all the right places! Incorporating soft pieces like a silk top with darker and edgier pieces like black ripped jeans or patent leather sneakers can really help elevate a simple outfit. Have a great week and stay fab!

This fashion season has been one of the most colorful and eclectic I’ve seen in a minute. But nobody does it like Milan. Not only is it the fashion capital of the world, but the Italian designers are some of the most talented and diverse in the world! Their designs are always true to the brand, but also to Italy itself. Their designs are rich with culture and passion and it’s very present in the collections.
That being said, no one does Italian fashion like Versace. It’s just the way it is. Since Gianni Versace’s murder, Donatella has truly made the brand her own and I’m constantly in awe of her vision. This season she released an entire collection dedicated to her brothers iconic designs for the house and his legacy in general. She paid homage to his designs by resurrecting some of the brands most iconic concepts like the baroque print, golds, leathers, and even denim! There was a bit of a western meets 90’s vibe to the clothes, but overall it was a dream! The baroque print pants paired with the oversized buckled belt made me absolutely swoon. This collection brought my 90’s fashion dreams to life and I will never forget it. The runway was littered with the unrealistically beautiful models that I adore like Candice Swanepoel, Gigi & Bella Hadid, Kendall, Natasha Poly, and the biggest breakout star of this fashion month, miss Kaia Gerber! I was in awe from start to finish.
Also, not only were the clothes sublime but the finale may go down in history as one of the most impactful and iconic runway show finales ever! I was sitting in Starbucks munching on a bagel while watching the show’s live stream, when it went black and I thought it had ended. Then suddenly I heard the words “Gianni, this is for you” and the music started again and a curtain at the back of the room was opened and there standing in all their “super” glory was the pack of 90’s Amazonian supermodels that we all adore. Cindy, Naomi, Claudia, Carla, and Helena stood there as the entire world was put on its knees. I’ve never seen more people shoot up in a crowd faster. The room erupted in cheers and yells and I sat there in a Starbucks absolutely speechless. Nothing could have prepared me for that finale, but I’m so grateful that I was able to witness it (even if it was through a screen lol). Thank you Donatella for giving us an indescribable collection and experience, the fashion world is truly lucky to be alive to witness your brilliance! And to your incredible brother who we will all forever miss and cherish! Bravo! 💛 Stay fab!
This LFW was one of the most optimistic and exciting I think in awhile. For the most part the designers showcased many fun collections as they usually do in London, but the one that stuck out the most for me was the upcoming designer Molly Goddard. Mollys big breakout into the fashion scene was when none other than Rihanna wore her lime green poofy tulle dress and took our breath away. On top of that, the picture of her holding a wine glass while in the dress went viral and was referenced in the show. Goddard did what she does best for her SS18 show, and that’s dresses. The collection was full of amazing new sillhouettes, textures, fabrics, and the colors were extraordinary. The models glided across the runway in intricately designed gowns paired with riding boots and some were even barefoot! What I loved most about the show was that Molly creates such unconventionally beautiful pieces and I think that’s why she’s resonating with the fashion world so much right now. I mean wait until you see the poofy crystal embellished dress, I DIED! I need to see Rih in that asap! Goddard’s designs are original and crafted expertly but they also bring a certain playful/childlike mood to fashion. Bravo Molly and congrats on another stunning collection! Stay fab!
One of my favorite things to write about is fashion shows. I love everything about fashion shows to be honest. I know what you’re thinking, “coming from someone who’s never even been to a real fashion show” yes you’re correct, but I don’t feel I have to physically be there to give my input on a collection. In today’s world one can simply pull out their phone and type two words and immediately be inside a New York fashion show.
Anyways, this season, the designers put out some extremely eclectic collections that really switched things up. We saw many new silhouettes, shapes, colors, and pattern plays etc. My personal favorite was mr Prabal Gurung’s S/S collection. Prabal is most definitely one of the most beloved shows of NYFW because of his never ending sense of wonder and innovation. His designs are constantly sleek and sophisticated but with a little hint of feminity and power. With his collection prior being one of the most talked about of the season, the fashion world was genuinely dreaming of what he’d come up with next. The slogan tees of his February show truly shook up the fashion world for the better. This season Gurung took shapes to a whole new level with things like corset/blazer hybrids and even corset/topcoat hybrids that are truly a sight to see. Once again we see a hint of menswear inspired pieces and I’m obsessed. Not only were his shapes expertly executed, but the colors and prints he presented were sublime. Also can we talk about those sunglasses!! I need them in every color asap! Dainty sunglasses are still having a moment and honestly I don’t ever want to see the trend disappear! It’s such an easy and modern way to elevate an outfit.
Also, Gurung’s casting has been spot on as of recently. The otherworldly beauties Ashley Graham and Candice Huffine were among the many diversely elegant girls to walk the show. The fashion world will forever be indebted to Gurung for his never ending sense of optimism and diversity. He’s a spokesperson for feminism and female empowerment all around! And what better way to end an already exceptional show than with the incomparable Gigi Hadid in quite possibly the most show stopping red dress of this NYFW season! The shape and silly outside were practically created for Hadid herself! She brought new life to the 💃 dancing girl and I’m all for it! Bravo Prabal I absolutely adored the collection!
