NY Fashion Week



How ironic, that a person like my dear husband, Captain, got to be in New York city right smack in the middle of Fashion Week when his only care was how to get to Cafe Zipetto for that cup of good espresso. Yes, he was there and had it not been for the fact that it was the boys' first week at school when all the chaos normally happen, so would I. Seriously, I am not the kind of girl that must be at Fashion Week because the life of my blog or my existence depend on it but once in a life time as a blogger, why not. For me it is just to merely experience the hustle and bustle of the city during this important moment of fashion industry, of which after all, we all are involve in either directly or indirectly. It would be nice to just be there and do a bit of people watching.. who needs the runway when you have the street, right? Anyway, for all of us who didn't get to be there or who doesn't really care but just wondering what's in store for SS 2014, here's some sneak peak from the week.

The ever so lovely and never disappointing Marchesa

Stripe galore by Preen

Bold and glamorous from Rodarte

Delpozo embracing the structure and texture

Feminine - Oscar de la Renta

Full skirt and midriff baring at Tibi

DVF celebrating the prints

 Ralph Lauren did it again, the Safari look

The Olsen twins' creation for Row

Marc Jacobs and his military inspired casual

Modern sophistication by Pamella Roland

.. and my favorite, BCBG Max Azria, a mix of retro and old school glamour yet 
so wearable by mere mortal like us!

  1. Hmm, there should be a fashion week for real women... You know, us mere mortals who don't have legs that go on forever, the vertically challenged, the not-anorexic... I would love to see some designers take on the challenge of making us look good, and would probably happily spend all my hard-earned cash on clothes that flatter real women's bodies...

  2. I agree with Tiina. It will be interesting to see how these looks translate into fashions for real women this season.

  6. I have no desire to go to NYFW, I think will it's a bit over hyped. But I would love to visit NYC one day.

  7. Sounds like my hubby, when he was in NYC, he texted me and said he was bored... How is that even possible!!!!!! Maybe I would not put Fashion Week on the top list but definitely could consider to visit NYC again, you can never see too much of that city! Good to see you back! We have also had a fare share of chaotic back to school week.... xxx

    1. Right? He has another NY this month and asked me to come along but the idea of travelling for 13 hours just to be there for 24 is just not appealing.. maybe we'll go on a vacation end of this year. I haven't been in 4 years!
