NYFW: 9/9 Nonie & Just In XX

Nonie

Nonie was a beautiful collection that showcased clean & sharp silhouettes . The collection opened up with different tailored looks in shades of white and cream. The sophisticated dresses looked stunning as the women walked the catwalk. Some of my favorite looks included a simple but modern twist on a white button down with tailored pants an a black dress with elegant draping almost resembling a robe.

The show had models from both genders walking down the catwalk in cool street style dressed from head to toe.A common motif was the use of hands throughout the looks.

 Jonathan Simkhai was an amazing presentation!  This was one of my favorite collections that I saw this season.  Jonathan Simkhai brand is a luxury ready –to-wear line for the confident woman.

Rose Wine Mansion NYC

Rose Wine Mansion NYC

The newest pop up in NYC is Rose Wine Mansion located on 5th avenue, and it is by an instagram dream! The timing of the pop up shop could not have been perfect as Rose is the summers hottest drink. This pop up experience takes you from start to finish and then some on how rose is made and the history of the summer classic drink. The experience is interactive and filled with great moments. Some of my favorite were the gummy bears, champagne bubble ball pit & the opportunity to make your own blend. 

Of course this experience is 21+ since you will be sipping your way through every room.

It is officially spring (according to the calendar) and hopefully the flowers start to bloom and the weather changes to be warmer soon! Spring in NYC is very special - Soho is such a magical part of NYC filled with the cutest shops and the buzz of old meets new. Soho stands for SOuth of HOuston and is an integral part of downtown Manhattan.  Soho's cobblestoned lined streets are a popular tourist destination as well as a local favorite. There are some of my favorite shops and restaurants located in the neighborhood and there is always excited when walking down the streets there. 

Whether you are familiar or a local Soho will always be a fun and invigorating gem of NYC

One of my favorite shows that I saw this week was Leanne Marshall. I absolutely loved her collection of bright, vibrant and beautiful gowns. Each one that came out was more stunning than the one before. I loved how the colors popped on all of the models. The girly and flirty silhouettes explored a scalloped motif, different necklines and different fabric illusions.  Safe to say I am very looking forward to this collection coming to life next season!

The easy and totally wearable dresses were my favorite and I am looking forward to seeing more from this designer in the future!

Negris Lebrum was a super fun show with a 70s vibe. I loved the fashion and how the models were styled especially the accessory pairings. The handbags were amazing, I loved that there were color pops of green! Also all of the models has really cool hair. The fashions were retro dresses and skirts were in shades of burgundy, reds and blacks. The looks also featured a few really cool jackets, a trench, a glittery number and a fur all caught my eye.

SIMPLY - NYC Fashion & Beauty Conference 2018

Saturday 2/10 felt like a Marathon day but one of the events that I really enjoyed attending was the Simply NYC Fashion & Beauty Conference Powered by NYLON. There were different stations from flower crowns and hair dos from Wen beauty, Marc Fischer shoes, Minigrown treats, a Braid bar and more! The first thing I did was check out the flower crown station. I was wearing a flirty & punk look featuring my favorite red wrap dress with flowers and combat boots. I thought the flower crown worked on the flirty & girly aspect of my look and I loved getting my hair done to compliment the crown! The station also had a Mir Mir photo booth which was awesome and a decorated swing - perfect for instagram worthy photos. 

The next station was Marc Fischer shoes! I loved seeing the new collection that are available online and checked out the newest trends. Minigrown, a noodle bar, was also there giving away juice samples and I am really looking forward to trying their noodles next time I pass one around the city. 

I also checked out the Rodial beauty station and had the chance to meet the gorgeous Maria Hatzistefanis the Founder & CEO of Rodial Beauty. Her beauty products were amazing to try and she was so sweet to talk to. Another cool station they had was the You Cam Makeup App station. This app which you an download for free on your phone uses the latest technology to apply beauty virtually to your face allowing the user to then purchase the products that are being "virtually" tried on. The technology was really cool and I had so much fun giving myself a crazy lip, smoky eye and pink hair! 

Lastly at the end of the event I checked out the Glam App station and got a super cool braid from the braid bar! Overall the day was so fun and I loved checking out the conference. 

NYFW - DAN LIU

The Dan Liu show was a spectacular show at Spring Studios on Saturday 2/10. This show titled "the spy who loved me" displayed beautiful clothing all in the theme of mystery and romance. The music fit the looks perfectly as the looks were styled with glasses from Nectar Sunglasses fitting into the allure of mystery. The 36 looks featured contemporary pieces for a variety of different women and yet was entirely cohesive. I really enjoyed the looks and the entire vibe of the show. There were a few dresses I was definitely eyeing as they walked down the runway! I loved the pink tones as well as the sillohettes .

Another show that I attended was the Oxford Fashion Studio show featuring a group of designers. I was able to watch the Rachel Pollack & Tadazzleme shows and they both were great! Rachel Pollack was stylish and sexy evening wear featuring deep V necks and long gowns. Tadazzleme featured amazing shoes in a wide variety from booties, heels & sandals. Veronica, from In Love & Lace and I were seated in the first row which was also a treat!

During NYFW I attended a Maybelline Masterclass featuring Desi Perkins & Katy DeGroot featuring their BFF Bundle of recommended makeup products. This class & interview took place at the Samsung store in meatpacking and wow was that a beautiful location and perfect space!

The Beauty Duo are not only BFFs in real life but they are also beyond gorgeous and shared their tips and tricks on how to apply makeup! I learned about contouring the cupids bow between your lips and nose as well as how important highlighter is! Hello Game changing beauty hacks! They also gifted products from there beauty bundle, and let me say, it all went on very smoothly and I am obsessed with the highlighter and eyeshadow palette. The beauty bundle is available at Amazon for $25.99 and they have the items that both Desi & Katy recommend and live by.
