carlos miele spring/summer 2013

You know the deal! More from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week c/o Chictopia.

Carlos Miele Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Presentation on Monday, September 10th, 2012 at the STAGE in the Lincoln Center. The whole show was about movement-- flowing printed chiffon, fringes on clothes and majorly fringed leather bags.


lol, I'm sorry, that's the last of our pics of P'trique.

joy cioci spring/summer 2013

At last, more updates from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week c/o Chictopia! Here are some shots from the Joy Cioci Spring/Summer 2013 Presentation on Monday, September 10th, 2012 at the BOX in the Lincoln Center.

With gorgeous prints of reflective water, reefs & intricate lace, this collection was full of modern-day mermaids! Complete with pretty pearls and caviar nails, this detailed collection was one of our faves.
For our full review on the show, check out the article we wrote on the Chictopia Blog.

Toile de Jouy Nails Tutorial

So after a nice week in NYC care of Chictopia, we're thoroughly versed in trend-spotting and our minds are completely saturated with Spring/Summer 2013 styles. No, seriously, someone asked me about Fall/Winter trends and I was blanking out for a second.

Anyway, we loved the Ruffian SS2013 collection-- full of french toile de jouy printed pieces and lady-like tailored pieces all styled with low-top converse and edgy hair and makeup. LOVE! We took inspiration from the line & did a toile de jouy manicure this week! To see the full tutorial, click on any of the photos below:

fashion week monday

After all those posts, I've still got 4 days worth of photos to share! The days in NYC were so jam-packed with fashion-y action, we're having trouble summing it all up... here's what we were up to on our second day at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week c/o Chictopia




aldo shoes "sen" hidden wedge sneakers, H&M oxblood pants, thrifted mesh cardigan, aldo off-duty "bollocks" bag

At last, we met our Editor in Chief over at Chictopia! Amethyst came by to hand over our invites to all the shows and we got to talk for only a few seconds, but it was so nice to finally talk with someone who we email on a weekly basis :)


We spotted Bill Cunningham shooting street style shots in his iconic blue coat & later that day he was excitedly snapping pics of Sam's leggings with a big smile on his face! WOOO!


We were just walking towards the tents when a little girl asked us if we were models (hahahhahhahaha, nope!) and then her mother asked Sam to pose with this book she wrote & then told her to keep it. We later found out on the facebook page that Sam had won it for being cool.


We got distracted on the way to the tents because we spotted P'trique! We found out that Alina Cho was actually interviewing him for CNN. The video of it is here & we're in it (taking this photo) at 1:09. hahahah


Another photo of us with P'trique... this feels like a bizarro Santa Claus photo.

Did you guys see this infomercial parody video by @kmartfashion?


We were intrigued by this tweet-to-receive service & totally tried it out! We got two fraps delivered straight to the Lincoln Center for a caffeine fix! SO SICK!



So that was all we did... BEFORE LUNCH! More updates soon, including pics from the Joy Cioci and the Carlos Miele shows!

zang toi spring/summer 2013

I'm still working on day ONE from our updates from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week c/o Chictopia!... DAY ONEEEEE.

This was our last show on the Sunday-- Zang Toi Spring/Summer 2013 Runway presentation on Sunday, September 9th, 2012 at the STAGE in the Lincoln Center.

We went to his show last season as well & he's all about designing for the upper crust: total hollywood, red carpet glamour (read: not us). Lots of classical music & models walking dramatically slow. I liked some of the dresses that were just dripping with jewels and the bouquets inside the cowl back dresses were pretty. Spotted: Kirstie Alley, Maksim Chmerkovskiy (totally had to google the spelling), Ivana Trump and some real housewives of New York. COOL.

Here are some of my faves:
