Spoken For

Zac Posen's Z Spoke line was definitely the talk of the town . OMG! OMG! Was it the vibrant make-up or was his 80's influence Spring 2011 line that rocked? Let me tell ya, both! BOTH! Girls Wanna Fun  Zac, and you get it!  In the words of Solange Knowles, "I want the entire collection in my closet"  This is a gotta have it line. Now , if you are a shoe collector, you can cop the shoes worn by the models here from Steve Madden, he supplied the shoes. Let the viewing begin.  Lights, Camera, Action !

I can read your mind, Fashionistas, you want the whole collection as well. This is a brilliantly girly collection .

Von Furstenberg Inspires Once Again

This year's New York Fashion Week was definitely spectacular, to say the least. Electric is the more like it, with celebrities like Kanye West, Kimora Lee Simmons, Russell Simmons, etc tweeting their arses off on the beauty both in the city and the runways, if you weren't in NYC, you were on your way or like many clicking your heels , hoping you'd magically arrive smack dab in NYC to view the awesomeness designers had created  for its obedient citizens. Us.

When you hear the name Diane Von Furstenberg, two things immediately come to mind, Wrap Dresses and Sophistication. She brought it again, ladies! and she went hard ! In fact, many fashion insiders were pleasantly surprised by the print influence in her Spring 2011 collection . Makes you wonder if her new creative director, Yvan Mispelaere had something do it with. Maybe, however, Von Furstenberg soley built the brand we know as DianeVon Furstenberg . We are sure she had much  influence in this collection.

It's All About Marchesa

I actually first heard of Marchesa , when Kim Kardashian rocked a Marchesa gown at this year's Emmy's. I basically made a mental note of Marchesa.  Fast forward to September 7th, 2010 and Marchesa is on the lips of all fashion conscious fashionistas. And this time, it was another actress ,as in, Gossip Girls Blake Lively in a darling cadmium yellow and sapphire fully beaded tribal strapless mini Marchesa dress.

I love Blake's interpretation of this mini . Anna Wintour summed it up best when she said ,
"Be authentic! Being anything less than yourself is a prescription for mediocrity"--Anna Wintour

This is most definitely a  MakeUnaTellAm momenta!
