fashion week faves: moody blues

The end of Fashion Week is nigh and I feel like I haven't perused enough collections yet!

Which designers were your faves?

Here are some highlights in different shades of blue.


Marchesa (What a beautiful gown.)


Marc By Marc (I usually love Marc Jacobs but his collection was a bit of a miss for me this year... the looks were too heavy; I much preferred this more wearable and fresh Marc By Marc line.)

Nanette Lepore (There were so many sumptuous details on display.)

Mara Hoffman

Norma Kamali

Lyn Devon

Oscar de la Renta (I thought there were many gorgeous pieces in this collection.  I also loved the hairstyling and the headbands.)

Jeremy Scott (this collection was very Rainbow Brite meets anime; definitely one of the more bolder designers from this week!)

Prabal Gurung (I always look forward to what he does next!)

Love this dress.



Farah Angsana (pretty dress, shape, color & fabric)

Proenza Shouler

Love this design:

DVF (I feel like her designs are always so flattering)

I love this bright teal!

Richard Chai Love

Bibhu Mohapatra

Tory Burch

Barbra Tfank (so good for Michelle Obama who wore one of her dresses at the last State of the Union)

Vivienne Tam

Anna Sui

J. Crew (super cute, right?)

Rachel Roy


Kelly Wearstler (I loved her collection... very fun!)

  1. DVF is the queen of wearability for all shapes and sizes. I knew J. Crew wasn't playing when they called Manolo Blahnik to do the shoes. I haven't seen many collections either, but I appreciated the endless glamour at Alice + Olivia and Rachel Zoe was surprisingly good as well. I suppose this Fall will be all about more accessible designers. Take that 1%!

    1. yes. i liked zoe's collection this season as well but haven't really loved in the past.

  2. Wow ~ amazing survey of beautiful blues, darling!
    I am completely smitten with that Marchesa gown!
    And I love that teal Barbara Tfank dress, too! So retro chic :)


  3. OH gosh!! So many awesome shades!! I don't really like blue, but put in this context, it's an awesome color! :)

  4. great choices! love the jcrew pants, and DVF of course

  5. Great snippets from fashion week. I think the Norma Kamali selections are so pretty!

  6. These collections are so pretty. I like blue so much, it's one of my favorite color.
    Nice selection.
