New York Bridal Week has once again arrived! So it’s no wonder that my boyfriend is freaking out a little with every bridal market show I attend. In October, I ventured over to Penthouse 45 for the first ever presentation of the new Isabelle Armstrong bridal line. After such a gorgeous introduction, I couldn’t wait to see the next collection. With modern twists on classic ball gowns including pink accents and contemporary beading, the latest bridal couture collection by Isabelle Armstrong did not disappoint. This lovely collection was once again shown at Penthouse 45 overlooking the always breathtaking Midtown skyline.
Last week, I saw some of the most gorgeous evening looks for fall at the Adrianna Papell Fall 2014 Preview. I loved walking through the showroom filled with sequins and sparkles. Though the cocktail dresses were the first to catch my eye, in the event that I have a fancy evening party to go to, I’ll be trying on my share of Adrianna Papell gowns. Aside from the breathtaking dresses, I also adored the sportswear and shoes. Adrianna Papell’s new sportswear collection offers flattering fits that transition perfectly from day to night. I especially loved the vibrant colors of the sportswear collection. Look for Adrianna Papell Fall 2014 at Lord & Taylor, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, and Nordstrom.

I’ve always wanted to capture the style of London by shopping like Pippa and Kate. So when I came across the Boyfriend Jeans Challenge, I knew that this was my chance to do so. Skype is currently calling fashionistas across the world to style an outfit around a pair of boyfriend jeans. Once you’ve styled a fabulous casual chic look around your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans, simply sign into your Skype account and add Skype.Collaboration as a contact. Then submit a photo or video message of your look.
The grand prize winner will be flown to London to go on a shopping spree worth $5500 with Skype Photography Brand Ambassador and fashion blogger Chaucee Stillman and Holly Coopey, fashion stylist at Cosmopolitan UK as your personal stylists. Before the grand prize winner is chosen, eight finalists will be selected to join a group video call with Chaucee and a group of elite stylists where they will be asked to style one final look. The looks will then be posted to the Skype Collaboration Project website and put to a vote. The look that gets the most votes will win a Middleton worthy shopping trip in London! Time to start styling!
I miss New York Fashion Week already. See you again in September!
If you used #MBFW, your Instagrams appeared on the Instagram wall in Lincoln Center.
More hotness from Betsey Johnson FW14!
The lovely Lindsey Vonn made a statement on the runway at the Red Dress Collection 2014 show.
On the way back from Pier 59, I walked by this creepy hotel and was intrigued.
It was a fabulous week!
For Betsey Johnson, fashion is always flirty, bright, and fun! I’ve long been a fan of her bold designs. So when I got an invite to her Fall 2014 runway show, nothing could stop me from attending. Though I originally had standing room only, right before the show started I spotted an unclaimed seat in the third row and snatched it up faster than you can say ‘fabulous.’ Not only did I get these amazing photos of the collection themed around all things hot, but my seat ended up being directly in front of the one and only, Miss Paris Hilton!
Betsey’s show was a red hot smoke show of fab fashion! It even included smoke and fire fighters to put out the fire caused by this insanely hot style. I loved the brilliant reds, statement necklaces, and overall fabulousness of the whole event. I tweeted that it changed my life and I meant it.
