Lee Oliveira, one of my favorite street style photographers, took this photo at the Jardins des Tuileries after the Chloe show during this past Paris Fashion Week.
In the current Circus of Fashion, to me, it’s quite important to be captured by the few ones that really matter.

PFW day 3?! The title here should’ve have been; #ZARA #EMBARRASSED #CONFUSED!
I have major internal conflicts about what I stand for in regards to Zara.
During Paris Fashion Week, I wore Zara. “What were thinking???”_ That is my subconscious screaming in my head every time I get recalled of myself uncomfortably answering a “GOD knows who street style photographer” that I was wearing Zara. My brain froze, stop it, considered lying and just spoke the words very fast, while I was already walking away.
Here is the breakdown of the conflicts :
1 – I absolutely love Zara! I spent so much money there last year; I could have gotten 2 more Dior dresses.
2 – Zara knocked off half of Céline (Dries, Givenchy, Balmain, Saint Laurent, and so on) Spring collection! OMG, they are so nasty!
2 1/2 – Nasty but with a 22 billion profit last year. That says something right?!
3 – Hey, I am always in black. I will never be photographed outside shows; unless I am Emanuelle Alt. I am allowed to wear Zara.
4 – You have a closet full of designers, what is really necessary to wear Zara? During Fashion Week?
5 – There is no way I am spending 3k in this Saint Laurent jacket. Zara has one just the same.
6 – Look at that blogger, how dare her seat in the front row wearing a look like from Zara. I am shocked!
And to end it … just for right now!
7 – As long there is no rehab for Zara addiction, I have decided to live in limbo!

Fashion Week month came to an end. I am sadly content to be back from Paris somewhat alive. My feet are swollen up, and my liver have come out of my body and bagged me to not even look into another glass of champagne. It was a great last 5 weeks. There was so much to see in and out of the runways. Before I start with my own trend reviews, here is another outfit I wore during the past month.
Now back to the couch; under the blankies, a big box of chocolate and Vudu’s movies choices on the screen. Fashion Week; I can’t wait for September, but I am so happy right now.

As I am so over New York Fashion Week. _ And thanks to MODA OPERANDI, already got my Marc Jacobs Mickey Cropped top and pleated skirt. Still want this shirt, coat, “dress” and jacket. Oh help me please?! I also got these dope Alexander Wang gladiator sandal boots, remember?! I can consider myself content, for now. _ I find myself watching as many runway shows life streams as I can. London Fashion Week had several highlights for me that won’t be forgotten. Milan Fashion Week started yesterday, just as I anticipated Prada rocked my world again. Is impressive how every season, every runway show, every garment; Prada always make me feel like I am teenager again, going on a first date with the boy I have liked for years.
Well, I conclude it is a must to talk in details about all that went down in London and what’s happening now in Milan. And I will, as soon as a get packing for Paris out of the way.
Different than packing for business/vacation trip; the matter here is over a week of outfits for the best fashion shows, the best parties, the best restaurants, and a the common possibility of weather changes by the hour. So a smart packing list for all seasons of the year, without over packing is challenging. But do take in consideration I will be shopping in Paris.
This is what I am bringing with me, plus my second skin.

Just kidding! I am really mean, I know. But so you are aware, this was by far the best outfit I saw her wearing during New York Fashion Week. Yes I ran into whatever that is, several times. My husband and I saw her once while he was in New York; and of course he had to say something: “See? If you keep working in the fashion business you might end up looking just like that?”
I know, or I hope I do know; that my fashion future is a lot more considerable with me. But I couldn’t help thinking? Maybe I look like her what she looks like to me? No! Do I?
Ok, even if I do! Here what I was wearing Stella McCartney dress, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, Fleet Ilya harness (waist belt here), Givenchy bag, Céline sunnies.
And another mixed signal, photographers taking photos of me!

One more outfit I were during NYFW Spring 13 shows. I was wearing Acne shirt, Viktor and Rolf skirt (here and here similar), Fleet Ilya harness(here and here similar);but you already new that. Giuseppe Zanotti lace up shoes, Céline sunnies, Erickson Beamon necklace (better one here and here) and Tonya Hawkes clutch.
Below a picture of dear street lens. Quite hard to not fell like Kim Kardashian when all those photographers; with their flashes on your face, asking while taking notes “What are you wearing?”. Followed by “One more!”, “Can you turn to the side?”. Well, unfortunately for me, fame only happens while coming in and out of shows venues. But it’s good know I can easily adapt to fame and all the “fashion paparazzi”.

On the last day of New York Fashion Week; I found myself without my hubby, best friend or a photographer to capture my outfit. I am horrible on self portraits, I wouldn’t put us through that. But of course I can always count on the street style photographers, which by the way has increased over 75%, but I am not counting. It would be rude to call them fashion paparazzis, if all they care for it is really good clothes regardless of the body under it. I can’t avoid feeling like a celebrity when a front of 30 plus flashes going off all at the same time it is strategically waiting outside runway shows venues exit doors, most common, the streets. I thank style.it for capturing this outfit here. I love the close up on my new clutch.
I was wearing Givenchy skirt (love this one here), Acne t-shirt, Fleet Ilya harness (similar here and better one here), Tonya Hawkes clutch, Chanel sunnies. Mawi bracelet (very similar here) , Jennifer Fisher cuff ring (bracelet version here), and Pamela Love spike ring on the right. Damir Doma bracelet on the left.

The best part of New York Fashion Week this time around for me was Soho Grand Hotel. Besides the drop dead gorgeous, young and happy staff. All night (and week) long loud parties. The incredible fast and delicious food from in-room dining. _ The hotel not only is on the heart of Soho, is absolutely beautiful, spacious, and it provide me with the best view of the city.
I still don’t get why my husband is so resistant to idea of moving into a hotel. I think I will totally be happy leaving at the Chateau Marmont, even at the Four Seasons. Listen, we only live once. Let’s grab this opportunity and make it happen. No, I am not delirious. He is the one that asked me to call for towels after two days we were already back.
Ok, I am getting away from the subject here. This is one of the outfits I was wearing during Fashion Week. The pictures were taken at the elevator of Soho Grand. I am going to miss that place!!!
Givenchy Roittweiler t-shirt, Marc Jacobs plastic skirt (not similar; but here, here, and here good ones too), Manolo Blahnik lace up shoes, Céline handbag (good choices here and here), Erickson Beamon necklace and Westward Leaning sunnies

Here is a quick review of the last 5 days of shows. NOTE, this is only what stud out for me so far. So let’s start by the end; Alexander Wang’s glow in the dark finale that is! Thanks to BRYAN BOY for always having his camera on capturing all great moments. WATCH THIS! Wang himself described, Tron-like.
Has Wang inspired you to wear his deconstructed beauties? Well, he had me on my feet, and them on my knees!!! In my element, the disconnected puzzle like clothes presented, got all a modern gal wants. Did I mention super sexy? I didn’t?
Wowww, super sexy! The fish line thread gives the feeling of the clothes flowing on the body. Can’t wear underwear wish some of this looks.
Wang’s leather pieces are stunning. The texture and prints adds a lot sophistication. And the shoes??? AMAZING!!! I wanted it all, all of it.
Now, 2nd note. The Gladiators shoes, in several different variations, are back!
Altuzzara gladiator heels. I am guessing Gianvito Rossi is behind this beauty too.
This one is Alexander Wang. Can we call it a gladiator pumps?
And this one is Skaist-Taylor. The Juicy Couture Duo’s new line.
…and last, a surprise that rocked my world. Jason Wu got the note; the harness note, remember?! Plus, he threw some leather and lace together. Equals, immaculate.
