Runway Look: Jason Wu Spring 2017 Ready to Wear

Current Cravings

Hope you’re not sick of the “off-the-shoulder” trend, because at NYFW there was an abundance of collections that featured designs with exposed shoulders. I’m not over the “off-the-shoulder” trend yet, but I’m a bit annoyed by the overuse of the term “cold-shoulder” in blog posts and articles that feature the trend. Of course if I could come up with a clever, but not overused, term to talk about this trend, I would have used it in this post—so who am I to criticize!

At any rate, I love these 2 shoulder-baring looks from Jason Wu’s Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection. I’m a fan of Jason Wu’s structured, sophisticated and feminine designs. And as with most of his collections, there are always so many looks that speak to how I want to dress.

Runway Look: Christian Dior Couture Fall 2016

Current Cravings

I loved the silhouettes used in the Christian Dior Couture Fall 2016 collection. And the black and white palette, with touches of gold and silver, allowed the silhouettes to take center stage. This show was billed as a modern take on the New Look (full skirts, tiny waists, and billowing fabric) that Christian Dior introduced in his debut collection.

This off-the-shoulder halter dress with gold embroidery was one of my favorite looks from the collection. The overall vibe of the collection was modern, chic, and feminine, yet effortless.
