What's the 411?

I’ve been MIA for over a month after fashion week to clear my head. I celebrated my birthday all Aquarius season. I had my dog of 16 years die from cancer within days. And on top of that I start my fertility process in two weeks. All of these things have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster but with that you have to move on.

So here is the scoop on what’s been going on regarding my 6 month update on my Myomectomy surgery, our new puppy that has brought love back into our home and the beginning stages of me becoming pregnant. No matter what life throws at you if you survive it remember you are truly BLESSED!

Fashion: NYFW Maturos F'W19

Maturos New York Fashion Week presentation was full of trendy selections and current pieces that are wearable now. Each style had trends like zippers and cut-outs and mixing of patterns making it a unique style. The collection is wearable but not timeless making it very current with today's seasonable trends. It has a sporty comfy vibe with a touch of feminine elements created. I would have liked to see more signature pieces within the collection. Her creative touch is there but more fashion appeal could have really made it a more powerful collection. Can't wait to see what she produces for her September's shows.

Runway: NYFW Vivienne Hu F'W 19

I enjoy watching a Vivienne Hu runway show because the collection usually is a hit from the beginning til the end. Her Fall/Winter 2019 collection (inspired by Alice in Wonderland) didn't give me the showstopping vibe that I was anticipating this season. The production was held at a venue off site and it lacked the stage presence that her brand represents. The collection featured furs that were fashion worthy when it came to outerwear style, the shoes the models wore craved so much fabulous attention but not the garments so much. There were a few that were really staple pieces mixed with casual and over the top dresses. It wasn't a hit for me like her other collections, I wanted more and it didn't give me that. I am hoping that in September she will come back with her A-list style and showcase back at the Shows. She is a true talented designer but this season wasn't one of her best for me.

Runway: Videmus Omnia at Nolcha Shows

This collection was very dark and had a strong Gothic vibe to it with Asian flavor. It was very dramatic, strong and bold. The collection was very unexpected not your typical designs so it had unique appeal for sure. I really enjoy the outerwear styles I thought it was extremely cool and different. The collection isn't for everyone and definitely not versatile. But it works for those that are into grunge and Gothic elements when it comes to dressing up.

Runway: Bennov F'W 19 at Nolcha Shows

Designer Bennov showcased a sophisticated collection at Nolcha Shows, very mature and classy. The designs were well made and offered beautiful pairings of fabric and color choices. The styles were perfect for business women or women looking to add true glamour to their 9-5 job. I would have liked some flash of color I think they would have given more appeal in making the designs more fresh and current.

 Designer Inspiration
All day long quiet and shuttle in the hustle and bustle of the city, in the boundaries of firm and soft, a moment of peace and rest is the gift of god. This fall/winter, BENNOV will combine hardness and softness in a surreal collision, inspired by the process of breaking and recombining, to explore the meaning of survival. In the exploration of all the inner, will restore ancient elegance and urban wind perfect combination. Elegant and comfortable there is no lack of bold creativity and sense of luxury.

Runway: 5 Wearable Styles at Gabriela Hearst F'W 19

When it comes to fashion collections sometimes its all about the production and ooos and aahs of the crowd. Rarely do you come across a full collection where styles are truly wearable for women. Gabriela Hearst's recent collection stays focus on Fall and Winter styles that can be accessible in our closets and wearable for those comfy seasons.

When it comes to showcasing a woman's elegance Carolina Herrera will always top the runway charts. There's no excuse why a woman shouldn't be this fabulous! The collection showed off grace and power on the runway. Full of flowing styles, that are sophisticated and chic within every element. The flats actually gave more of a dramatic feel with the dramatic colors of the garments. Rich in style and reach in presence is what the collection brought to the runway.
