Are you guys ready for Mercedes Benz fashion week? Well, are you? Everything is in full swing and all of fashion's finest is in effect. I for one am eager for photos, gossip and the like.
This week's Friday's Fancies is focused on just that. Fashion and all things fashion forward. Honestly, I have no idea if I pulled "fashion forward" off. I doubt that Heidi, Michael & Nina would be too impressed, do you? However, I can say with full honesty here that I would not have the guts to wear this out. Not because I don't love it, but only because it's not...me. But put this outfit on someone like Heidi Klum and voila! Magic.
The Sonia Rykiel top was what started it all. I couldn't get past the sequins and stripes (and I thought of Liz the whole time) and the colors. Then I remembered how much I adored this and all the brightly colored pants of the runway and thought it was a match made in heaven. I would never wear those shoes - mainly because I'm not sure I could walk in them, but they seem to be pretty sweet peeping out from under the pink pants. Pink pants...yikes, did I just use those two words together in a sentence? Anyway, I couldn't resist topping it all off with an edgy motorcycle jacket to bring a toughness to contrast all the softness going on here. I hope I succeeded...but I'll let you all be the judge :)
What are you all up to this weekend? We don't have much as far as plans but a lot needs to be done. As usual. I do know that we're ending the weekend with a special dinner that I am very much looking forward to.
Whatever you get up to this weekend, I hope it's nothing short of grand! Happy Friday + fashion week, my friends!
