We'll Always Have Paris: PFW 2016

 

Beauties,

I wanted to share my thoughts on Paris Fashion Week. I’m going to be honest, I should have written about New York Fashion Week (NYFW), but I was bitter. Because I wasn’t there. And the fashion still happened. ~Pause for a bucket list moment: I am going to NYFW before I die.~ Ok, the moment has passed. Ironically, the time for NYFW has passed also. It’s old hat. So I decided to go international and write my thoughts on Paris Fashion Week. I seriously love what has been happening there, and I’ve noticed some truly beautiful trends!

A great place to get recaps on all fashion week happenings (from NY to Milan to Paris) is the Vogue Snapchat account (voguemagazine). I am hooked; I loved the Jessica Alba take-over during the Valentino show (and I am seriously in love with everything in that collection!)

Below are 3 of my current fashion obsessions:

1.      50 Shades of Green

2.      Lace

This stunning Valentino dress is too gorgeous. A collar AND romantic flutter sleeves?? So much yes!

3.      Nude (SO many nudist puns I wanted to put here, but serious self-control was exercised instead)

This trend is not going anywhere ladies. I honestly have a love/hate relationship with this look. Sometimes it’s just plain unflattering. I personally don’t want to pay to look washed out. And don’t even get me started on the nude lip trend. I thought I WANTED everyone to know I have lips! I digress.

This trend is all about finding the right “nude” for your skin, and then pairing it with a great statement accessory. This look from Givenchy, paired with a stunning agate necklace, has me ready to start searching for my picture-perfect shade of nude!
