Boho is making a comeback for Resort ’15 – though I can’t say it ever left my closet and I don’t think it will. My wardrobe consists mostly of long, free flowing shirts and dresses, fringe and some more fringe. Perhaps I keep Boho around to hide my food baby – and I secretly wish I lived inside a Free People magazine. Don’t get me wrong; I love the minimal, streamlined look Boho encompasses, there’s this understated vibe it exudes, a kind of bold and carefree look if you will. It won’t go away anytime soon because contemporary classics are a staple. It is just a matter of keeping them fresh.
The floral print will always pair nicely with bohemian style threads; it’s just a matter of how the print is presented. We see designers reinvent floral each season, the question is, are they executed correctly? Another boho staple is the tie-dye print, which again can be hit or miss depending on the representation of the print. Here are some of my favorite boho-chic inspired designs from the likes of Lanvin, Giles and Michael Kors featured on style.com and Elle’s Nov. ’14 issue. Head over to style.com to check out more of the Resort trends.
This past week, all of our favorite fashionistas migrated to Paris to attend the White Fairy Tale Love Ball at the Chateau de Valentino (proving that the fashion set live like royalty in real life… ). The ball was hosted by Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova to raise money for her organization, the Naked Heart Foundation.
While the guests provided plenty of eye candy(they were in town for the couture shows, after all), the highlight of the event was the much anticipated fashion show of 45 dresses, created specifically for the foundation by just about all our favorite fashion houses, from Lanvin to Oscar to Yves Saint Laurent… The gallery below will give you an idea of this winter-themed wonderland. If you ask me, the perfect salve for this sticky malaise of a Summer we’re having.
OAKNYC can do no wrong in my book, so it’s little surprise that in trolling the web for a suitable solution to one of my client’s dress dilemmas, I found the perfect piece on their site. And OH, and HOW. So perfectly askew, this asymmetry.
If I caught you walking down the street in such an ensemble, you just might be accosted by a marriage proposal. Don’t worry, ladyfriends, we can see other people… I’m accommodating that way.

I adore this particular iteration for many, many reasons, but chief among them: this shoe will still be incredibly cool in five years. Yes, you read that correctly, and I am willing to throw down money to back up my claim, mostly because little that manages to rise above the din of my ever-bombarded periphery tows the line between compelling and commercial as well as this pair here.
Note: the next thing I fall in love with probably involve feathers, some form of goat fur, leather straps, grommets, spikes, and I will insist on PVC, just to be safe. To fall in love with something so perfectly tame, though perfectly GOOD, inspires in me a minor identity crisis…
