My Favorite Looks From The Tanya Taylor F/W 2018 Collection

Image
Tanya Taylor stepped out of her comfort zone and added a bit of glam to her fall/winter collection for 2018. She still showcased her usual pretty prints and figure flattering silhouettes but this time she added metallic pieces and updated wardrobe staples with a cool designer twist.
METALLIC




A sparkly metallic top or dress is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe. Tanya Taylor made a metallic turtleneck, top, and dress that would be perfect for a party and the upcoming holiday season. Plus they rarely go out of style and can be worn for years to come.
FLORAL PRINTS




Taylor threw in her signature prints this season but offered us a more deconstructed version of them. She first painted the flowers on canvas, uploaded the finished result to her computer and then manipulated the print by taking out identifiable features for a more artistic take on the traditional floral print.

Some of the more wearable pieces in the collection was her take on fall/winter basics. S…

My Favorites From The Boss Fall 2018 Menswear Collection

Image
When I was growing up I remember the menswear brand Boss for nice classic suits and superb tailoring. They were a high-end fashion brand that pretty much exclusively catered to the corporate set, so if you did not exist in that realm, you really wouldn't be checking for them. That has all changed with their new chief brand officer, Ingo Wilts. Since he joined the brand he has pushed their design direction into sportier territory without abandoning the classic elements that Boss was known for. Wilts has named the new design aesthetic as "sporty tailoring " which perfectly encapsulates what the brand is offering for fall/winter.

I Love Prada's Black And White Dress

Image
Finally, Prada has caught my attention! The brand has always had iconic handbags but I have never really found their clothing that appealing. Usually, when I am checking out the latest collections I always skip right past them because I assumed I had their aesthetic all figured out but sometimes a brand will surprise me, which they did when I saw this beautiful black and white overprint dress. I loved how they balanced using a graphic print with proper placement. The print is so eye-catching that when I first looked at it I didn't even realize it was a print. They placed the print at key places that I like to accentuate when rocking a frock. The print highlighted the chest and waist area which creates an hourglass shape even if you do not have one. It is slimming and shapely which is key for me. 


When styling this set I wanted to keep the palette pretty simple, so I stuck with a black and white theme when it came to the accessories. I added a pair of modern dangle earrings from A…

Christian Louboutin Rubylou Cross-Body Bag

Image
Christian Louboutin went back to his designer roots when he designed his Rubylou Cross-Body Bag. The bag features his "love" motif that he debuted in his first collection back in 1991. Since everything nineties is cool again this was the perfect time to bring back a part of his collection that was so nostalgic for him, especially since his brand has grown so much. Now he is an international icon and household name so it is always so cool to see a designer reference some of the moments that have helped them grow into the success that they are today.

The designer also added the "love" motif to other styles of handbags that he offers. Sometimes the motif is designed in leather or an arty graffiti print. Below are a few examples of how he worked with the iconic motif.

Lust Worthy - Maison Boinet Grommet Bucket Bag

Image
I have always had a thing for grommets. I love the edgy detail on clothing, shoes, and accessories. Whenever I see anything with grommets I automatically want to snatch it up, so when I saw this Maison Boinet Grommet Bucket Bag I had to add it to my lust-worthy list. It features a long chain strap so you can wear it as a crossbody or you can switch it up and use the top handle option as well. It also works well for day or night.
