Ah! This dress! Have you ever worn something and received compliments everywhere you go? That was this dress in New York! I wore this dress during New York Fashion Week, and to have fashion industry professionals compliment my dress; it was like a dream come true! I couldn’t believe it! I now know, this dress will get worn by me A LOT during the fall season! Love!

Fall florals are a huge trend this fall season. So it is fun to have at least one item in your closet to rock this trend with. This dress is an easy way to wear fall florals. I love how it moves and flows as I walk. It also happens to be quite comfortable! Love that!

Since I was running from show to show, I chose to pair my fall floral dress with low heeled booties. These booties are super comfortable, and helped carry me through the day. Unfortunately they are sold out, but you can find a similar, low-heel pair online here, and a fringe pair here.

I wore this fall floral maxi dress on day five of New York Fashion Week. Day five was a busy day! I attended Irina Vitjaz, Taoray Wang, Leanne Marshall, Vivienne Tam, Anniesa Hasibuan, and I also went to the RewardStyle blogger party. I was on the go! To see coverage of these shows, please check out my NYFW recap online here.

The weather was much cooler on day five than it had been previously in the week. This gave me the opportunity to wear this dress. I was so thankful the humid heat was over! I do not function well in hot humidity. I grew up in the mild climate of the San Francisco Bay Area, I am not accustomed to east coast humidity. It really does me in!

Want to see what’s hot for spring 2017 from the runways of New York? Check out my NYFW trend report online here. I love sharing with you all the fabulous new trends for spring coming out of New York!

Day three of New York Fashion Week was the hottest, and most humid fashion week day I have ever experienced. Words cannot even describe the heat, and the icky humidity! Thankfully this dress was cool and breezy; perfect for a yucky humid day!

I started the day off in my suede booties, but the sky became a bit foreboding with the threat of thunder showers, so in order to save my suede booties, I switched to this pair of pewter leather booties which can sustain some rain. I heard it rained, but I must have been indoors when it did, because I never got caught in it! Whew!

Day three was really fun. I kicked off the day at Dan Liu, which was a romantic collection reminiscent of Paris in the 1960’s. I loved all the vintage inspired, feminine dresses. Next, I was off to Vicky Zhang which was filled with Mother-Daughter apparel. So cute! Then it was time for Rebecca Minkoff. You can read all about it in my blog post here.

After Rebecca Minkoff, it was time for Son Jung Wan’s disco inspired runway show. So much fun! The music was disco, and the people sitting behind me got out of their seats to dance to the music. It was amazing! Then I had a little break to eat some lunch, and edit a few photos before seeing A Detacher’s spring 2017 show, followed by Sally Skoufus’ fine jewelry presentation. It was a full day, and I loved everything I saw. So many great styles coming up for spring 2017!

By day three, the spring 2017 trends were starting to come into focus. There was more blush, denim, jumpers, green, pink, metallics, moto jackets, 1960s influence, 1990s influence, and decadent embellishments. Stay tuned! I will be recapping all the trends from the spring 2017 runways in a separate post. Spring 2017 is going to be fabulous!

Day two of New York Fashion Week was a lot calmer than day one! I attended four shows, Issosy London (children’s clothing), Francesca Liberatore, Katie Gallagher, and Demoo Parkchoonmoo. My friend Dawn (who took these fabulous photos), and I had a chance to actually eat three meals, and walk around a little bit. Eating meals-what a luxury!

These black fringe booties have turned out to be so comfortable! They are made from a soft suede which helps add to the comfort level. I love the fringe on the side, it is both sassy and on trend. Love that! I cannot wait to wear these booties non-stop until the rainy season starts. And yes, I am very optimistic that God will give us rain in the Bay Area this year. It is time for that pesky drought to stop! But I digress. . .

After two days of shows, some spring 2017 trends are starting to pop up! Many designers seem to be favoring black and white combinations, metallic hues, green, pink, red, and soft autumnal hues. One color trend which is surprising me, is the continuation of blush! It seems like blush pink has been around for many seasons. I thought by now designers would tire of the ultra-feminine hue in favor of other shades from the color wheel, but it seems to still be going strong. Hang on to your blush pieces from 2016 ladies, it will still be hot in 2017!

In addition to color trends, designers seem to be favoring small floral prints, pattern mixing, texture, vertical stripes, decadent embellishments, twisted and tied fabrics; and a 1960s influence seems to be emerging. It will be interesting to see if these trends continue throughout fashion week, and if store buyers pick them up!

Stay tuned! Early next week I will give a full trend report straight from New York. I have hundreds of photos from the runways to sort through, and decipher. I can’t wait to identify some new trends for spring 2017 and share them with you!
