Blue is no longer the bluest of colors. In fact, it is as fresh and bright as today’s spring day. At first I thought it was all about navy but with a deeper dive I stand corrected. There is no playing favorites or sides; all different hues, saturations and intensities of blue are fair game. Truly, the more you pile on and group together the better. So, it’s high time we all dust off that J Crew cashmere navy sweater we all have in the bottom of our closet (you know what I’m talking about), grab a cyan t-shirt, your favorite dark wash denim and layer it up. Anything goes here, so have fun with it. Get inspired by some of my favorite blue ensembles from Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week street style below.
Lindsey Wixson is at the forefront of ManiaMania’s Fall Winter 2014 Look book and I’m in love. Channeling Stevie Nicks, nothing can come between me and Wixson’s lower lip. My favorite decade coupled with one of my favorite models adorned in a gorgeous ManiaMania precious stones and metals. The collection “Immortalia”, hand made in New York City, is inspired by witchcraft and Wixon’s bewitching outer-wordly looks were her casting characteristics. I mean really, the 70’s and witchcraft, what could be better?!

Fall Winter 2014 Fashion Weeks are now behind us – NY, London, Milan and Paris. Of course, I love all the collections and the production of all the shows, which is a whole beauty in themselves but mostly I love the street style. So many magazines and blogs capture street style and with photographers snapping away it’s easy to follow along as if I too were on the street of Fashion Week. With this great coverage I always begin to see patterns. It’s hard to project what one singly trend might be in advance but after fashion week it’s apparent what’s going to be “all the rage”. I’m kicking off this series with PLAID. This year any type seemed a go; tartan, gingham, madras and tattersall, they were all present. And personally, I love it. How about you? Are you going to bust out your plaid skirt via 1995 and do your best Cher Horowitz? Come on get inspired and join me!
Vogue Japan does these really awesome fashion stories. That’s about all that I can tell you since I don’t read Japanese but I just love how colorful and weird they are. This one, Pop Stars, is especially great. Original via Vogue Japan
