Currently Coveting: Perfect Pantone Pastels

Spring is here! They say springtime represents new life, a renaissance of sorts. I see it as an opportunity to revamp our closets and breathe new life into our daily wardrobe. A time to put away our sweaters, coats, leggings and boots in the dark colors of winter and re-emerge in the flirty dresses, tops, tanks and sandals in the warm colors of Spring. Particularly, the pastel colors that herald the start of this new season.

I teamed up with Farfetch to bring you my inspiration for springtime. I put together a wishlist/inspiration board that represents how I see myself in these coming months.Each piece is not only a spring silhouette – think crop tops, vests, and dresses – but also is in a soft pastel color that matches the warm weather that Spring brings us.

I am most of all obsessed with the Alexander McQueen off the shoulder mini dress. Nothing says Spring like a ruffly mini dress in a warm cloud blue that shows off a little shoulder and a little leg.

Take a look at my wishlist below and be inspired to revamp your own wardrobe with some pieces that evoke the warmth and renaissance that Spring brings!

Currently Coveting: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

 

It’s film festival season and that means there are iconic film fashion moments just waiting to happen. So this got me thinking about my favorite iconic fashion moment from my favorite scene in my favorite movie: Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly eating her morning danish while she takes a look at the beautiful jewelry in the windows of Tiffany’s on Fifth Avenue.

The best part of this look is that its a simple black dress that is transformed into a look that evokes glam and luxury simply because of the accessories. I thought about how I would interpret this look today and decided that I would take an amazing and elegant black dress and pair it with pearl accessories that stand out and evoke the elegance of the ever-chic Audrey Hepburn.

Mansur Gavriel Responds to Claims of Copying

During New York Fashion Week last week, Mansur Gavriel debuted its first shoe collection alongside its it-girl favorite bags. While many in the industry were excited to see this emerging brand make its way into new areas of market, one fellow designer was not so please.

Designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh of New York City, released a statement claiming that the brand’s duo design team, Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel, had copied Zadeh’s “hallmark mule and slide designs” and that the shoes were also in identical colors to Zadeh’s Spring 2015 collection.

When pressed about her accusations by Business of Fashion, she revealed that her store records show purchases from “Rachel Mansur dating March, April and May 2015, of the exact styles and colors in question, as well [as] an earlier purchase of Maryam Nassir Zadeh sandals from Floriana Gavriel in July 2014.” She cites this as evidence that the designers had access to her shoes and referenced them in their own line.

Giorgio Armani, Corp. Sued For $75 Million

Giorgio Armani was sued last week by former employee Fabio Silva in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan. Silva worked as general counsel for the company for about a year from October 2014 to July 2015.

Silva alleges in his lawsuit that Giorgio Armani created a hostile work environment and unlawfully discharged Silva based on national origin and disability.

Silva claims that because he is of Mexican descent he recieved discriminatory statements from a co-worker. He then met with Chief Operating Officer, Giorgio Fornari to complain; however, nothing was done to rectify the situation. In fact, Silva claims that the company then retaliated and denied his request for a raise because he complained of discrimination.

Announcing: Warby Parker Fall Collection

A couple months back, I woke up, got out of bed, and promptly stepped on my glasses and broke them. This is the worst thing that can happen to someone who wears glasses and contacts. So, I began perusing glasses options.

I want glasses that are chic and fashionable but are also classic and timeless and don’t cost me a lot of money. After all, I’m wearing contacts more than I wear glasses, but when I wear glasses I want them to look good!
