I love maxi dresses and this summer I am not only incorporating previous season's of maxi dresses and rompers but it's all about the perfect maxi skirts! In addition, I do love a monotone look with pops of color from my accessories. I love playing with proportion as well so having a slim fit maxi skirt by Malene Birger and with this fab top by CLU. I love that there is ease in the top and together it's a very laid back look (it's a look that will take you from shopping in the city, partying at Coachella and lounging in South Beach. Take it super easy with these fabulous sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti which merges tortoiseshell and a little bling together. Rock a long beaded labrodite Chan Luu necklace which plays with the neutral tones. Stack a few fun python leather bangles together by Ted Rossi (my fave accessory designer and friends of mine) which pairs the tiffany blue color with the natural grey snakeskin. This is such an easy look and with the weather we're having in the city right now.
What a day, my favorite evening and bridalwear designer had two phenomenal shows today. Romona Keveza is passionate about her designs, use of fabrics as well as fab tailoring! This morning, my mom and I headed to the St Regis Hotel on the 2nd floor in the library to see the couture collection for Spring/Summer 2012, which was stunning and had strong influence from Brigitte Bardot who is phenomenal! There were a number of gowns that I knew I wanted to wear at red carpet events as well as could see myself wearing a number of the bridal gowns. As always, I have a fab clip of video footage that shows the final runway walk of this show. You can also see members of Kleinfeld - Mara Urshel, the co-founder of Kleinfeld as well as Randi Fenoli from the same salon who also has their own show on TLC - Say Yes to the Dress. There is such a touching moment in the video where she walks out with the model and gives her flowers to her mother - so sweet!
Later on in the afternoon we enjoyed Legends by Romona Keveza for Fall 2012 with commentary by Romona herself at the Dior Suite within the St Regis Hotel! She also brought in some of the items from the couture collection to speak about them. I loved being able to ask questions and drool over a number of pieces as well as hearing about those items that had recently been on the runway. The image above comes from the couture collection but we also got to see the Tiffany Blue dress up close and personal. Below are a number of amazing videos from this section of the day and you'll also find out how some of the bridal traditions that we hold today were derived from reasons that you would not associate with them. In addition, one of the models actually wore the dress that she presented to us for her own wedding; moreover, she shared her thoughts on the dress and definitely embraced how amazing she looked!
