After posting about the bold floral and tropical trends to expect this spring, I’ve found myself sifting through the web racks for relevant pieces to update my wardrobe. I’ve never been the “tropical vacation” type of girl (I get antsy after sitting on the beach for too long. So sue me!) but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good rainforest hibiscus print! Though Stella McCartney had my back (doesn’t she always?) with her Resort 2011 citrus prints, she’s come back again with more bright tropicali prints for her Resort 2012 collection (which also boasts some serious deck chair wonders) along with other designers and brands (Asos, Topshop, Tory Burch, Hawaiian gift shops).

I just purchased this floral suit from Asos and am getting tingling sensations of joy just from looking at this Mary Katrantzou dress.   And since you all know me as being the shop-a-holic type that stops at nothing, I’m obviously going to share all the other floral explosion pieces I’m currently coveting.

  2. SUNO Beaded Beach Mini Dress - $660
  3. Marc by Marc Jacobs Horizon Teal Floral Silk Pants - $430

August is a tough month. People are either away, enjoying their last bits of summer or they’re like me, cursing the continuing humidity and anxiously waiting for that first crimson leaf to emerge. Fall will forever be my favorite season mainly because I’m happiest when I can comfortably layer my clothing and can walk around without breaking a sweat.

There are few things more beautiful than autumn in New York; the streets become quieter, the trees transform into rainbows of oranges, reds, and yellows, people are pleasantly wrapped in light jackets or chunky knits, and there’s an unmatchable crispness in the air. I’ve already begun thinking of different outfits to wear once that first fall day really hits, and these are just a few items I wouldn’t mind adding to my roster.

  1. Topshop Silky Stripe Tee - $66
  2. Pamela Love Moon Sterling Silver Ring - $425
  3. Grace Choi Fur Collar - $21
  4. Stella McCartney Burgundy Trousers - $330
  5. Asos Wide Brim Fedora - $43.10
  6. Mother Denim Drama Jean - $148
  7. Victoria Horning ‘The Cluny’ Bag - $895
  8. Marc by Marc Jacobs Michaela Silk Dress - $498
  9. Forever21 Faceted Rhinestone Necklace - $12.80
  10. Rag & Bone Newbury Suede Bootie - $495
  11. Essie Nailpolish in Chinchilly & Wicked - both $8
  12. Style By Marina Shirt Dress - $78
  13. Mali Sabatasso Green Turquoise Ring - $275
  14. Alice by Temperley Fur Gilet - $410
  15. Vanessa Bruno Color Block Jumper - $324

Oh, this dress…

I saw this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress on the runway and immediately added it to my wishlist. However, I wasn’t fast enough at buying it and it sold out in what seemed like mere seconds. Equivalent to that of a major blockbuster hit, this dress was out of stock before the model walked off the runway, a total worldwide obsession. So, like any true, hopelessly devoted fan, I  got on a waitlist.

Thinking my dreams of galavanting around in this stripey silk number were officially over, I started to take interest in…brace yourselves…imitation designs that I’d seen hanging in multiple NYC boutique windows. I know, I know, very unlike me, but I was determined to own this dress, or at least something like it. But! like most (Disney influenced) fairytales, my wish upon a star came true and I awoke one morning to find an email in my inbox letting me know that this dress, in my size, was now available. Zippidy do da! 1-2-3 click and it was mine! In just a couple of weeks my perfect, colorful, flouncy dress arrived on my doorstep all the way from Germany.

Being everything I thought it would be and more, I’ve already planned out a variety of different outfits with this dress (boots and a leather jacket anyone?), so you’ll probably see it on here more often than not. Wishes really do come true!

Usually, when I buy a dress for a certain occasion I have a hard time wearing it again for a few months. I don’t know what it is…maybe it’s because I like when an item of clothing reminds me of a particularly special day or fun time but either way I definitely have a few items in my closet that I’ve only worn once, maybe twice, just because it was purchased for a specific event. This dress however, is an exception. I bought this dress to wear for this past Thanksgiving and have worn it at least three or four times since. It’s easy to dress up or down, is extra soft and warm, and I’m obsessed with its oversize pockets and asymmetrical stripes. It was pretty cold in New York this past weekend but I was totally fooled by the bright sunlight and cloudless skies and thought I could get away with just a denim jacket…boy was I wrong. Next time, I’m really going to have to layer up.

Marc by Marc Jacobs was a plethora of loud colors and patterns this season reminding us that matching is never necessary. Giant bunny-esque bows crowned the top of every models head as they walked down the runway in clish clashing patterns that worked in a very 1980′s eccentric way. Marc provided us with a collection that flatters the female figure, a rarity nowadays with cinched waists, full A-line skirts, baggy trousers and platform sandals. Another successful year for Marc if I may say so myself.
