Rebecca Minkoff

Rebecca Minkoff | Spring Summer 2013

Rebecca Minkoff Spring Summer 2013 Collection. I knew I was going to love it when the first model in all white walked down the runway to Tennis singing Marathon live.

Reds. Whites. Blues. Florals. Blazers.  Cut-off jean shorts.  It is an all-american bohemian girls' dream all in one line.

You'll probably hear me say this more than once, but really this was my favorite show.  This was my second show of the week, and once again I snuck into the photographers pit.  (I had a horrible spot by the way...but I just worked with what I had).

Everything was so fresh and springy about this line.  I love how Rebecca mixed flirty floral pieces with a splash of playful tomboy.  Not only do I love every piece from this collection, but literally I feel as though I could wear it directly from the runway.  Bravo Rebecca Minkoff.  Nailed it.

 

The Red White and Blue series was great.  It is what I like to refer to as the Classy Boho.

Mint Green Lace dress.  My favorite look from the show.

As you can see below, I'm literally behind dozens of photographers in this pit (and on my tippy-toes I might add)!

Also, I'm entering a Rebecca Minkoff contest.  Check it out HERE.

New York Fashion Week Street Style | Part I

What surprised me about the trends I saw throughout Fashion Week was that there were so many different types of people, fashion, styles, trends. Sure, there were the ones that were glaringly standing out above the crowd:  leather, print pants, peplum shirts.

However, not one person was the same.  I love how fashion can truly be an extension of who you are, an art form of self expression.  There really are not that many rules.

The one rule that I've realized that I'm going to stick with is to just be me.  Be fully me, that is the most unique thing I will ever have to offer.

Lastly, I'm super excited to have photographed street style at New York Fashion Week for Lauren Scruggs and Shannon Yoachum and their publication LoLo Magazine.  Check out more of my street style pics on their site HERE.

Below is Ella Catliff of the London based fashion blog La Petite Anglaise.  To me this outfit was one of my favorite outfits all week because it was simple, feminine, classic, and elegant.  She isn't trying to hard, and/or trying to 'keep up'.  Ella is timeless in this outfit.

Another favorite:  I just love the simplicity of the white v-neck tee with a pencil skirt and tan belt to draw everything together.

This young lady is gorgeous.  But what I love about this seemless white ensemble is that when someone from the crowd yelled 'who are you wearing'.  She replied back 'It's ALL Zara'.  

See ladies...you don't have to be a millionaire to dress fashionable.  It's the pieces you pick, and how you wear them:)

Below is LA blogger and stylist Cheyenne from Cheyenne meets Chanel.  You know I'm a sucker for a white blazer.  I Love her Rebecca Minkoff camera box green purse!

Minutes after the Rebecca Minkoff show as I was headed to lunch with some sweet ladies (Miss Lauren Scruggs and Shannon Yoachum.  If you don't know them, puh-lease check out the rad magazine Lolo).  Shannon kept talking about this girl that was wearing a blazer from Rebecca's SS 2013 collection.  Well we turned the corner, and found Miss Jules from Sincerely Jules rockin' the blazer.  I want.  I need. I want. I need.

The last show of my day was the Tommy Hilfiger SS Collection.  Much to my dismay they would not let us (Lauren, Shan, and myself) into the show.  So I stayed and got some shots as everyone was leaving.

Dear Tommy, please let me in next time.

Thanks, Kat.

Below left is Justin Doss, fashion editor of GQ.  Sigh.  So darling.

I may have not made it to the show, but I did meet these sweet guys that walked for Tommy.

I mean really, who doesn't like a guy in a well tailored suit and hat?  And that grin?

And that ends day one of New York Fashion Week Street Style.  More to come:)
