New York Fashion Week 2013 Trends

New York Fashion Week 2013 has just wrapped up, but we still can’t stop thinking about all the beautiful fashion and beauty trends! Among the top trends we saw on the runways, we’re still brainstorming how to incorporate the top three trends of fall 2013 in our wardrobes- leopard print, leather, and houndstooth.  Whether mens or womens fashion, clothing or accessories, these trends are easy for anyone to incorporate in your closet for the upcoming fall season. Pops of leopard in an accessory is an easy way to incoroprate the pattern into your everyday wear. Buying one great leather jacket is an investment piece, and a staple you will have in your closet for years to come. Although houndstooth may be overwhelming at first, pairing it with a solid top and shoe is a great way to introduce yourself to the trend.

As far as beauty trends, we saw matte nail polish on many different runways! Buy a matte top coat from brands like OPI or Essie, and apply it on top of your favorite nail color.

Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2013 Collection


We are in lust for Naeem Khan’s Pre-Fall 2013 Collection, which he says is focused more on “dressy day” looks as opposed to his gorgeous evening wear. From short cocktail dresses to jaw-dropping, elegant sequin floor-length creations. Naeem Khan  is a designer known for his graceful, couture designs that have been worn by celebrities such as Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, and First Lady Michelle Obama! If you have the cash and want to stand out, consider getting your hands on a Naeem Khan dress. Perfect for brides who want to change out of their wedding dress during their reception or to don on your bridesmaids.

Earth Angel Editorial Wedding Inspiration


We came across these gorgeous pictures from Ryan McGinley for W Magazine’s January 2013 issue with model, Daria Werbowy. The editorial is titled, “Earth Angel” and we loving the look of the Ukrainian Canadian model, Daria, styled against the different earthy backdrops. This “earth angel” theme would be a great inspiration idea for a wedding! Think of the color combos of red, green, yellow, and white against textures like chiffon, silk, and tulle. Thank you to for sharing these photos.



So dreamy and ethereal! Perfect for a hipster bride in Los Angeles or a beachy bride in San Diego.

This is fall glamour to the max! The mix of autumn reds, yellows, and oranges, makes a for fiery and dramatic wedding look.

This is shot is just amazing with the lace dress and yellow tree leaves.

Bridal Fashion Week: Badgley Mischka Fall 2013 Collection


As you may know, last week was Bridal Fashion Week or New York International Bridal Week (October 12-15). Famous for their elegant, rich beading, we fell in love with Badgley Mischka’s runway collection. Their Fall 2013 inspiration was drawn from celestial elements. Their 16-piece collection was named after planets, constellations, the Greek alphabet and astrological signs such as “Venus,” “Virgo,” “Eclipse” and “Ariel.” The collection featured both slender and full gowns that were embroidered dramatically along the shoulders, torso and waist. Walking down the aisle in one of these gorgeous dresses ought to make you feel like you’re in heaven!
