Inspiration: Mara Hoffman

There’s nothing that tickles my fancy quite like Mara Hoffman’s collections – and her latest one is no exception.  Really, I was just getting amped up for fall clothing (chunky sweaters and leather skirts galore), but after seeing these looks, I’m already craving spring.  Phenomenal patterns? Check. Vibrant colors? Check. Elegant silhouettes? Check.  Now, all I truly want for Christmas is a closet full of Mara Hoffman’s Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection.  But can you really blame me?

Let’s start with these maxi dresses: ab-so-lute-ly stunning.  They would look truly flattering on any and every body type.  Throw on some chunky wedges and an wrist full of thin silver bangles and you’re good to go!

Here are my other favorite looks from Mara Hoffman’s new collection.  Enjoy!

Inspiration: Prabal Gurung

New York fashion week just started off with a bang, and I couldn’t have been more excited about Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection.  I just about melted over his sporty, Himalayan-inspired Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear, so I was ready to see what Prabal Gurung would do next.  And I was nothing short of amazed! His mix of sporty pieces with flowing detail creates the perfect concoction of style.

But what really caught my eye were these two high-neck, flowing gowns.  (They are seriously works of art.)  The accent colors in each dress are strokes of design genius – and they just look downright cool.

Prabal Gurung even launched a new shoe line that was featured in his runway show.  So enjoy that little bit of eye candy, too!
