Oscar de la Renta

Oscar

Taking a moment today to send all my love and prayers to Erika, the entire Oscar de la Renta team, and his family. He was an incredibly talented gentleman, class act, and radiated grace inside and out. Rest in Peace, Oscar.

Birthday Wishlist

As my birthday weekend rolls around, a cyber-trip to

Net-A-Porter

was in dire need. In all honesty, this wish list is only a wish list... a girl can dream of printed Gucci loafers. On the other hand, The Row sunglasses are calling my wallet and I'm not sure how long it will be 'till I break.... 

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + '://' + 'widgets.rewardstyle.com' + '/js/shopthepost.js';d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') {window.__stp.init();}}(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script');

Not So Basic

Wearing: Zara jumpsuit,Joie sandalsOscar de la Renta cuff c/o, Celine bag

If I fully admit to my monochromatic addiction, Zara and other stores will go out of business thanks to me single-handily. 

Hi, my name is Sloane and all I wear is black and white. 

I cannot exactly pinpoint when my wardrobe began to only consist of several neutral colors... or should I say shades? Let us not forget those important Kindergarten lessons of learning that black and white are not colors, but shades. Anyway, the monochrome erm... "problem" started way back when I purchased this playsuit from the main culprit, Zara. Alas, as you can guess bare legs don't fly in a) the winter and b) when jumpsuits are the happening thing in my wardrobe. The outfit-in-one used to stump me a little, specifically due to my height and the overall factor of the jumpsuit- i.e. not looking like you've wound up in Studio 54 or Top Gun. However, the black brings down the imitation factor a notch. 

Don't get me wrong here, every blue under the sun is still in a close tie with the monochrome shades, but this whole ninja manner that I'm sporting sold me to the dark side. Unlike most my solution to this said problem is to embrace and roll with it (ninja style).

And simply because it is Friday, I'm just going to keep playing off this ninja quip for the sake of it. 

Since my post on ear cuff bling, amping up my hardware game has been a top priority of mine when it comes to rolling out of bed each morning- pssstt! Another reason why jumpsuits are the bomb.com (lazy girl standards at its best). It's about time I donned this warrior meets runway cuff from my favorite American designer of all, Oscar de la Renta. The best match for my ninja jumpsuit...Okay, okay. I assume that I've rambled on plenty about the importance of a jumpsuit, black, and such. 

Cheers to Friday!

NYFW


Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone. This year, I followed along via social media and corals + cognacs hilarious behind the scenes recaps. On the runway, I had some clear favorites- classic icons like Oscar de la Renta and DKNY and newer brands: Mara Hoffman, Clover Canyon and more. There were definitely some clear trends for Spring 2014 like the crop tops, pastels, and your expected "Spring" items. I'm sharing with you some of my top picks from this year and my favorite trends.

1: Ever so classic white is re-invented again by Oscar and Tory. Both of these looks are drop dead gorgeous. Can we just talk about the ODLR dress and that Tory Burch jacket!?

2: Romantic is a revolving trend that seems to come up quite often and here it is again. Zac Posen and Rachel Zoe both show romantic styles this year with lace, silk, and soft blush tones.

3: For spring, bold and graphic prints are back. Print masters, Clover Canyon showed some stunning prints for the upcoming season- like the dress above! Mara Hoffman, who also knows how to rock prints, sent bold maxis down the runway.

4: Sporty-Chic is one of my fave trends. (see my post on baseball hats) DKNY showed her signature colorful sporty chic look with an extra bit of the cool factor- look at this showstopping dress! Milly was one of my favorite shows. I love all the mesh details but it still looks put together and fresh.

I would love to know what your favorite show from NYFW was or what you thought of this season- please share with me!
