NYFW Monique Lhuillier F/W 2013

10 Feb

Monique Lhuillier’s gorgeous Fall/Winter 2013 collection consisted mostly of her usual red carpet ready gowns in addition to some shorter tea length gowns and even included trousers!  The palette was mostly malachite green, winter white and black & gold baroque style pieces.  The entire collection was decadently detailed and beautifully tailored to the woman’s form.  Beautiful!

Baroque Trend! Do You Dare?

11 Sep

Ok ok I’m breaking from my Spring/Summer 2013 NYFW coverage to talk about this trend that is HOT right now for Fall!  The question is…..will you wear it?  I may try it but I’m a bit scared. The baroque style brings so many things to mind……17th century, opulence, luxury, royalty, gold, DRAMA!  With plenty of elaborate details and wild ornamentation this trend can seem difficult to pull off, I think the right person CAN though. Like any fashion lover I would DIE for a Balmain jacket, but that may be the only baroque piece I would wear or is it?????  Hmmmmmm, While I’m not completely closed off to the notion, I’d just have to find the right piece, something that speaks to my heart. A jacket or a clutch???? Maybe a T? or Jeans?

Some inspiration……

All baroque doesn’t have to be gold, these jeans are very wearable.
