That is the message delivered in New York this week by a majority of the presenting designers.

Proenza Schouler rejigged the double breasted blazer, opening their show with a sleeveless jacket wrapped up in a Pussy Galore meets the KFC Colonel’s skinny black bow tie.  Nothing represents classic fashion more than black and white.

Michael Kors is THE gentleman of classic clothing.  His Spring 2016 Collection is clean, forever fashion that glided across the runway and made buyers, editors and fashion lovers drool! The simplest design with the cleanest of lines in the very best of fabrics and colors.

Kors also brought out a bouquet of decadence in brocade floral pieces.  The richness in their design and material is beyond compare, and an investment in his clothing guarantees a healthy roi!

Budget wise Michael Kors also offers a lower priced line, Michael Michael Kors which is always influenced by his ready-to-wear designs.  So these fashions will easily translate into mall shopping!

Tomas Maier aka Mr. Miami, is all about linen, full skirts, maxi dresses, shirt dresses, pinks and reds.  Simple one piece dressing – perfection in ease  and style.

Now if we can all just ride out the 70’s vibe for Fall 2015…

NYFW a la ‘burbs

There was a pity party happening in the suburbs. 
Fashion blogger and style editor couldn’t go to NYFW. Too many commitments in my other role as a mom. 
Luckily Vogue.com, instagram and the grooviest online fashion feeds allow me the super human combination of being super mama and fashion obsessed blogger all in a day’s work!


Truly all my technological fashion feeds are in direct thanks to Christopher Bailey, the CEO and design director of Burberry.

Christopher changed fashion forever when he permitted a live feed of his fashion show in February 2010.  Before this landmark event fashion shows were strictly for buyers and editors and certainly NOT for suburban moms!

The greatest luxury is being able to watch live video feeds of the shows (hello phenomenal new playlists!!!), translate the fashions into suburban mom-speak and write posts for the blog, news sites and magazine, all while running the corporation of home, husband and children!


This was Alexander Wang’s gift to his New York audience, along with his return to street wear FIERCE collection, British rapper Lady Leshurr.

Seriously add it to your workout playlist NOW!

Other designers tapped it back in the form of nineties artists, Willie Nelson and of course using the appropriately titled “begging for threads” tee hee!

Tune in tomorrow for a posting dedicated to the simplicity of Spring 2016 Fashion.  Imagine that!

Fortuna for Us!

Fortuna is the Roman Goddess of luck, and is the inspiration for Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring 2016 Collection just unveiled at NYFW.

This was the first painting Diane ever bought, it hangs in her bedroom and represents freedom, nature, beauty and individuality, and luckily for us brought forth this dazzling collection.
