Last week I attended the Neiman Marcus Spring Modernist Event at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. I love going to fashion shows like this and just inhaling inspiration. (Please keep in mind the key word here is “inspiration,” because Lord knows these beautiful garments are way out of my current budget.)
Before the show even started, I was transfixed by the guests’ bags and shoes across the runway from me.
(I was wearing my $50 Gap leopard flats. *shifts eyes*)
The show was amazing. Most of the trends that were presented are below.
The warm weather leather trend has me salivating, you all. The leathers were so soft and buttery, and in every color under the sun. (Please feast your eyes on this Pierre Balmain yellow leather jacket. LUST.) However, my favorite trend that Michaele Hall mentioned was mixing high and low. Ladies, I can definitely get on board with that one.
I loved all of the shades of blue.
But these were my very favorites.
Just give me those windowpane trousers with a simple black boatneck top and heels, and I’m a happy girl.
After the show ended and I was slowly being pulled back into my Akris and Lanvin and Oscar de la Renta-less reality, the lovely lady seated next to me asked which pieces I was planning to buy that afternoon. I barely could contain my laughter, and told her that the trend of mixing high and low was my favorite….I just manage to stick to the lower side the majority of the time.
All in all, I’m feeling trés inspired for Spring. I might have picked up a few blue items already.
