So delighted to have been a guest at the Bellevue Fashion Week Media Luncheon yesterday.
I was greeted warmly by Cheryl Engstrom,and treated to a buffet style lunch provided by the Hyatt.
The Fashion Forecast presentation with Lawrence Zarian and Cara Crowley was a great way to get an up close and personal view of what's ahead for fall.We also received some styling advice on how we can make these looks our own,by adding statement pieces such as a wide belt,adding slouchy pants to comfy knit sweaters,using scarfs,and bold jewelery to add "oomph" to that little black dress.
White is the new black this season.Sixties inspired prints,flirty dresses,and exposed zippers. If you want to take a walk on the wild side, take a nice girl and put her in a dress or jacket with an exposed zipper for a hint of naughty! Ornamentation is key,Bring it on! Play with a little texture,mix fabrics!
Ankle boots and knee high boots are back,but so are gloves,to give a "lady-like" look to your fashions. Tres chic! Classic pieces are also in style this fall. Choose ONE simple piece and make it your own. Lawrence added, "Buy one piece,and create 4 different looks"
I liked the way that both Cara and Lawrence referenced Audrey Hepburn and Chanel,sharing that we should be comfortable with who we are right now,and that true beauty shines from the inside,in our eyes, in our passion,whatever we choose to do.
Until next time~
