20’s, 30’s & 40’s… Louis Vuitton Has You Covered!

22 Sep
Pictured above from left to right… Natalie Vodianova, 28; Karen Elson, 31; Christy Turlington, 41; Three equally gorgeous woman all at different stages in their life, yet Louis Vuitton appeals to them all. Ever since I first came across this ad a few months ago, I was intrigued.  But it wasn’t until now that I really though about what there Fall Camping really represented.  Typically Louis Vuitton is not a brand that appeals to me.  I HATE logos! Which is a huge part of what LV represents (although I would love the Damier print), but then this ad came along and I all of a sudden was coveting LV?  For one the classic silhouettes and timeless colors appealed to me not only in the design of the handbags but in the overall feeling the models in the ad’s presented.  I think I was more drawn to the bags because of the girls wearing it.  These ad’s make you want to be that sophisticated, well dressed “Mad Men” type, well at least thats what they did for me.  I also was very impressed with how they chose to target such a wide range of consumers by featuring three beautiful models covering the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s age groups.  What a perfect representation of their brand!  A+ in my opinion!  I will be saving this in my Fall 2010 inspiration files for future projects to come.

Pre Fall Fashion Inspiration

21 Sep

Fall is my favorite time of the year!  The crisp cool air, the colorful leaves, the pumpkin spice lattes, boots, these are all a few of my favorite things, above all though “Fall Fashion” is really what makes it all worth it.  I came across this picture of Carrie from Sex & The City (forgive me but I can’t remember where I saw it)  but none the less this photo inspired me!  I love everything about Carrie’s outfit and was instantly inspired and ready for the Fall season to begin.  The light weight long cardigan, above the knee socks, short motorcycle gloves, patent lace up oxfords and silk print dress make the perfect combination for the transition period from late summer to early fall.

Im already wearing, in my opinion, the perfect pre-fall nail color, ChinChilly by essie, now I just need to go out and (re)create the perfect pre fall outfit!  I think I could pull something together once I switch out my closets.  I feel a weekend project coming on!

What are you wearing right now? Whats currently inspiring you?  I want to know, please share below!

Wear It Now: Erin Fetherston, Resort 2011

8 Sep

Erin Fetherston, Resort 2011It’s still a bit warm in NYC, but the cool temps are right around the corner, making this the perfect wear it now collection.  Throw a cardigan over each of these looks and they transition very nicely into the fall.  Then once Spring rolls around bring them out again and they’ll looks new and fresh.  The second and 4th look would even work well with black tights and a tight turtleneck underneath.  A sleek blazer over look on and five would be an excellent choice.  Gosh, I love pre-Fall/Fall… the possibilities are endless!

How would you wear the above looks?

This post is dedicated to my beautiful Mother, who’s favorite color just so happens to be purple.  I hope you had the most wonderful day possible, filled with a lavender sunset, blueberry cheesecake, and cozy purple knits. No one deserves it more than you.  We have our differences and don’t always see eye to eye, but there’s never an argument when it comes to our love of purple. Thank you for being who you are and for making me who I am. Happy Birthday Mom!  I love you!!!
