Sample Sale: REISS


I Spy Celeb Fly: Regina King on GMA

 Regina King was on Good Morning America yesterday and looked absolutely gorgeous! She is giving me all sorts of Spring feels in this arctic weather. So in case you were wondering where her dress is from, she is wearing a Theia Floral Cocktail Dress. He's one of my fave designers by the way. This wild daffodil printed matte lasse cocktail dress is from the Resort 2017 collection. Unfortch, I don't have the 411 on her yellow pumps (but if I find them, I will let you know). But she is wearing that dress. Not to mention, her hair and makeup team are winning!

Sadly, this dress is almost all sold out. But in case your size is left (and I do see one in my size, but my wallet just walked out of the room), here is the info...(oh and when you see the detailing, makes you gasp!)

Theia Floral Cocktail Dress. $695.

I too attended some NYFW shows. I couldn't let my guest posters have all the fun. [P.S. I know it has been forever since I actually posted...although I know you love getting the scoop on all of these amazing sample sales. But, slowly and surely, I will be posting on everything I should've been...even shows I attended last season.]

I started my fashion week season with a show and designer I have been wanting to see for a long time, Leanne Marshall. She has been a fave of mine since Project Runway and I was excited to get an invite (even if it was Standing). I have always loved Leanne's collections and this AW17 did not disappoint. I loved her use of the staple wardrobe colors - black and white, nude/champagne, silver, and pops of red. It's great when the color palette is simple, but the design is what gives it a twist...because then you're focusing more on the designer's aesthetic than how much you either love or hate the color it is in. (By the way, every model had a popping red lip!) The collection had this cool combination of structure mixed with fluidity that I really enjoyed. And I loved her tailored looks (especially the red pants and the laser cutout skirts). Such a gorgeous collection. It gave you everything romantic, strong, and effortless.

More looks from the Sumy Kujon AW17 collection
I was so excited I got to cover the CAAFD Emerging Designer Showcase AW17 for The Fashionisette on Valentine's Day. Fashion is my one-true love! The first designer to show was Peruvian designer Sumy Kujon. This collection was very unique and well designed...with a focus in cotton and wool materials from the scarves to the sweater-esque dresses. All the looks were paired with ankle rain boots (love a shoe focus), which made it more of a comfy, relaxed, yet formal collection. I saw it as dress down Friday...but not dressing down...well maybe more of a dress fabulous Friday in the office. One of my favorites to walk the runway is pictured above. This neutral colored trench coat dress is everything. I loved the flowy silhouette. It's a look that can be dressed down with an ankle rain boot and dressed up with great heeled shoe. Honestly, it's so pretty, I would wear it to work or just stroll down the street for it to be admired.

Next up was Chicca Lualdi. I love this collection for many reasons. She is very bold with the colors she puts together yet they are all so neutral. Her focus was evident, moderate designs with materials such as silk, satin, and wool, and textures mixed together. The style is very conservative yet stealing attention from the audience with its use of colors combined with pointy heels with the scrunched up high socks. I thought it was an excellent idea to put that together! It was creative, tailored, feminine, and muted, yet speaking loud and clear.
