Spring Couture Week 2015 Recap


Couture Week is one of our favorite events of the year because we get to see some of our favorite designers pull out all of the stops to make truly extravagant pieces. Here are a few of our favorites from the past week!KIM_1287The tunic-like jackets and skirts at Chanel were awash with color.

KIM_0081Elie Saab’s beautiful dresses were taken right out of a fairytale. The colors were soft and washed out, but the drama was in the floral beaded appliques.


KIM_0481The pieces at Armani Prive were inspired by bamboo, and had a very Asian-influenced vibe.


The looks at Atelier Versace were daring and decidedly feminine, with floor length gowns in bold colors and spiraling cutouts.

Denim Days Inspiration


Lately we’re really feeling jeans that are jazzed up. With the holidays right around the corner, adding a little sparkle or flair to your pair makes them all the more festive. Last year we were all about the embellished sweater, but this time around we think its time that the jeans got a chance to shine! We love the look paired with a basic tee or sweater that really lets the look of the embellished denim shine through.
