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.

I know you guys have all heard, ad nauseum, about how obsessed I am with Zara… Most notably due to the fact you can get beautifully designed European style clothes for inconceivably low prices. But I have to say, this season they’ve really outdone themselves. So keep an eye out on my blog for a post featuring some examples of their current, ultra-chic collection.
One of my all-time favorite Zara (wholesale clothing prices for consumers) purchases was this velvet suit… I purchased it at their glorious flagship store in NYC when I was last there. And I have to say, it adds the perfect touch of feminine and masculine to any outfit, and truly looks like a few thousand dollars, doesn’t it?
Everyone should have at least one suit in their wardrobe, and this is definitely the one for me.
blazer – Zara | trousers – Zara | corset – that is so old I can called it, Vintage | bag – Givenchy | shoes – Alexander Wang | earring – Givenchy | necklace – DanniJo | ring – Jennifer Fisher | bracelets – (right hand) Damir Doma, (left hand top) Garland Collection and (left hand bottom) Givenchy

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.

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.

First came Tommy Tom, with his state of art streetstyle pictures, snapping some colorful, some customized Nike sneakers; during numerous Fashion Weeks and 2011 along this statement _ “After years of towering around in sky-high heels, it was only a matter of time before fashion insiders came back down to earth and slipped into something more comfortable. Embraced by tastemaker Phoebe Philo as she makes her Celine bows and also seen in countless editorials, the sneaker has become the shoe of choice.”
Meanwhile, the very famous hidden heels Bekket Sneakers by Isabel Marant,which was introduced back early 2010 [HOLY COW! A two years trend?!_ (thanks to Anastasia I am changing my OMFG to holy cow!!!)], and still “impossible” to get it, the Bekket sneakers is on everyone’s feet. No joke!!!
But it wasn’t until last Haute Couture week, when Vika Gazinskaya’s Nike and dirndl skirt took over and named the begging of a new trend era. Soon came all the Model off duty looks from Stockholm Streetstyle during Paris Haute Couture and Copenhagen Fashion Weeks. Followed by outfit posts from bloggers and trend followers. I, like most of people mentioned, have got my tired and overworked feet into this trend. Casual hangover Fridays, became a Monday through Sunday thing for a flat addict like myself. Rest my lovely beat up Lanvins, take a break slippers, it’s sneakers time.

It wouldn’t be summer without at least one “white party” to attend. This year, instead of Ibiza, or an exotic European happening island _ Beverly Hills was the destination. The event? A 40 years old birthday bash to get P Diddy, Sean Combs (or whatever his name might be these days, serious commitment issues dude!) anyway, soooo jealous. There was something about an absolutely gorgeous, well decorated house; combined the most good looking people wearing all white (lots of diamonds too!) and drunk out of their minds that would have made any party expert to be delighted by the way the night unveiled. Knowing what kind of clan I was about to mix myself in, I made sure to chose the appropriate white party dress. Sexy for my husbands eyes and still very up my league. Mixing the Givenchy dress with the harness came out to a huge success, (I know Christian Grey would’ve like it,) and kept my style identity in check. As I needed no more, the thin black strap Alexander Wang sandals, and a simple, black as well, Givenchy clutch was enough. Next time, without shame, I will definitely add spanx to my ensemble. Only if you had seen how big my stomach was after all the champagne and tequila I had that night!
