Suitsupply, for the third year in a row, will be dressing the Dutch Olympic and Paralympic team and their entourage! Their head designer, Murray Coetzee designed the above four looks which we will see next week during the opening ceremony. There is a nod within its style to iconic English sports and being trimmed by the colors of the Dutch flag. How cute is the oversized tulip just to remind you that this is the fkower of the dutch! How can you not love the tennis blazers and cricket cable knits. If you check out other portions of this collection which can be purchased, there are badges decorated with British landmarks.
In addition to loving the looks and wanting the trench coat! I would definitely suggest these fun hues if you're looking to rock a little orange and blue while watching the Olympics Opening Ceremony next week. As you know, I'm a huge fan of all shades Butter London and on my other days, Essie as these bring in both of the hues that these Olympians are wearing for their country.
Although Fashion Week starts tomorrow officially, I will be running around going to a few shows as well as doing my last minute errands in terms of getting my complete looks. So for me, Fashion Week starts in a few hours with a presentation, runway show and other tidbits. For him, he can relax and work on his projects and shake his head as I am forced to run in and out of the worst weather possible for my key time of year. It also seems like those that are US Open bound also feel the same way as their games were cancelled last night - I feel their pain but at least NYFW is not cancelled but it will make running around in my stilettos a sport of their own.
With the fall weather that is coming upon us it is allowing me to rock some layers in addition to some outerwear and for him, he can get cozy. Although he is not at the games right now, he's loving Heineken Tennis Classic by Sol Angeles' exclusive collection that was created in conjunction with Heineken and is currently available at Arthur Ashe stadium. If you're in the complex, you have to check them out as they have a number of cute items and for men's casual wear for running around, going to the gym etc this is phenomenal and apparently sales reflect that the public loves it! He pairs this with American Essential's drawstring jersey pant as he runs out to grab a bagel, get a haircut and all the quick prep he needs to be snazzy for days at the tents, media lounges and after parties. All Saints' hoodie caps the look off as we love playing with grey and to add a pop and to be truly playful in the land of blue, we finish off with these zippy Adidas Original sneakers! Happy Pre Fashion Week and it's official that we will be recapping what we're seeing starting tonight all the way until the end of next week!
The week before last, I was invited to Dickinson's suite at MSG to watch the BNP Paribas Showdown that included one of the William's sister's playing in the tournament. What a great way to watch tennis from the comfort of being indoors and in a full stocked suite. As much as I loved the game, it was great to mingle with various beauty bloggers such as Jeannine Morris of Beauty Sweet Spot. I find that sometimes the events are one of the best ways to keep in touch with everyone to find out what they are up to and to make plans later on whether it's to get coffee, grab drinks or to get something to eat.
Although I was much later than I wanted to be, I was so happy to have the chance to speak with Katya Meyers about her work with the Women's Sport Foundation and the Tone Up Challenge. Billy Jean King started the Women's Sport Foundation which really looks to creating positive reinforcing of women's health and beauty. It's nice to have the opportunity to hear initiatives that support women to have a great beauty regimen and to be healthy as opposed to those that speak to being a certain size which creates a sense of overwhelming emotions. Talking with Katya, I learned that she would be on a morning show the next day to talk about The Tone Up Challenge - exercising to be fit.
I was also able to talk with the Creative Director of Dickinson. This company has been in existence since the 1800's, is family owned and survives based on the word of mouth! Sad to say, I had only become aware of the products a week in advance; however, I was pleased to see that they used Witch Hazel which is an element that is extremely beneficial to the skin as it fights acne, blemishes and other ailments that don't work for your skin. The Towelettes that we were given definitely comes in handy when I need to refresh! I can dab my face, neck and wrists and feel ready to continue visiting showrooms. I can only imagine how essential this will be when the weather gets extremely warm! Take some time to check out their full product line!
So tomorrow is the first day of the PGA Golf Show in Orlando so my posts will be more golf oriented. One of the things that I fell in love with in terms of Ame & Lulu was that they understood the need for women to accessorize. I think that having fun pops of color and also something that makes lugging items around easier, adds to the fun of the game. The golf course is truly an accessible field to everyone! Ame & Lulu has created amazing lines that not only give you a lot of variety but allows you to show your personality! With items designated for golf, tennis, yoga and the everyday - you have no excuses to look cute! This Kimono collection mixes brown, cream and hot pink together. Take a minute to check out what could make your game look a lot better!
Today we checked out a new sport that is gaining interest, Beach Tennis. I have to say that I have never seen anything like it but I love the fact that this is going on during the US Open and that they set up a nice area where you could watch in the main venue space and people could try out on the side courts. It's definitely interesting and when looking at the sponsors, Sport New York was also covering it so that must mean it's gaining public notice.
