Elie Saab Spring Couture 2014

Now this… this is Couture. Elie Saab took my breath away with a beautiful, elegant collection- not that I’m surprised. Saab has continued to put out exquisite and eloquent gowns that are certified show stoppers. The silhouettes, the fabrics, the details- all meticulously done and perfectly executed. I wasn’t completely sold on the styling, but one look at that floral ball gown and I was taken. Saab has always been one of my favorites to watch for, and this season was no exception.

P.S. Can I coin the term “saabing”? as in ” those dresses were so stunning I’m sabbing?” Feel free to use at your own discretion.

My absolute favorite-what organ do I have to sell to own this dress– look:

And my absolute favorite-someone better wear this to the Oscars or I’ll lose faith in humanity-look:

Chanel Spring Couture 2014

I CAN’T BREATHE. Chanel took my life and then gave it back this morning. Those tennis shoes are EVERYTHING. I will admit that this collection isn’t very “Couture”, it errs more on the side of ready-to-wear for me. Although since I am nearly incapable of wearing heels, I am so refreshed to see a “Couture collection” with some good ol’ (and prob outrageously expensive) trainers. All things aside,  I love you Karl, I love you Chanel, I love you beautiful pink tennies that will be mine even if I have to sell my car and mother.

These last three are my top picks:

1) I’m about to dig up all my old knee and elbow pads and wear them to work tomorrow

2) THOSE TRAINERS

3) If someone doesn’t wear that dress to the Oscars, every stylist everywhere is doing something wrong

Also, this child is a serious G holding hands with Karl and Cara. Fabulous ending to a fantastic show.

Dior Spring Couture 2014

Is there anything like Dior Haute Couture on a cold, blistering Monday morning? Maybe WEARING Dior Couture on a cold, miserable day like today- a girl can dream. I’m loving this collection from Raf. It’s fun, young, flirty and unconventionally sexy. The collection might not take with the older, loyal Dior customer, but I really appreciate the new audience Raf is trying to reach. Take a look at some of my favorites:

HELLO to the neckline on that floral overcoat. So excited to see the rest of the collections!

Nice Move, Anna

All I can say is KUDOS VOGUE, KUDOS. Brilliant marketing move for the magazine, and Lena is just a gem. Can’t say I LOVE all the photos, but I love what they represent– that you don’t have to be 6’2, 100 lbs to be in Vogue. Anna is making moves ya’ll. I can’t help but think what Shosh would say about this…
