Tis the season of floral prints and pastels. Yes, it's spring which means I am sure all of you cant wait to sport your favorite sun dresses and crop tops. For those of us living on the east coast of the United States spring crept its little head out for a hot minute with temperatures [...]
I've been feeling very whimsical lately, needing the presence of romantic silhouettes and lustrous fabrics with airy movement in my life. Maybe its because Valentine's Day is around the corner or maybe it's just because I am consciously and subconsciously yearning for how women used to "dress" in yesteryear to come back in vogue! I [...]
In my opinion, the best characteristic a designer can possess, is the devotion to his craft. Designer Norman Ambrose, not only designs the most exquisite womenswear but is involved in every step of the way; hand creating all of his garments. From an inspired idea to the red carpet, every detail is overseen and crafted [...]

Now, my entire life of watching the Oscar's I have always said that the only designer that should be worn should be...you guessed it...Mr. Oscar him himself, Oscar De La Renta. But, I don't think that would go over to well with all the other fabulous designer who's luxurious work has graced the red carpet over the years. Don't get me wrong, some actors have made very bad choices at the Academy awards! We all Remember Bjork's swan dress that I think was more of a Swan song; a cry for help. I think we need to put that monstrosity behind us and never look back on it again, even though it is such an iconic FASHION DONT! Tonight, Instead of focusing on the Fashion don't of the Oscars I am going to focus on the FASHION DO's!

Designer Massimiliano Giornetti took this season in Milan to the country. By country I do not mean Italy's country side. This collection almost makes you feel like you are in a modern-day Cowboy's Couture Dream that consisted of distressed suede riding boots, over-sized coats with large toggle closers, leathers, velvets, and rich deep earth tones including brown, green, and navy! As a contrast there was a lot of light colors such as white, cream and bone! There also seemed to be hints of flair from dating back to the 1940's. Oh, If only cowboys dreamed in Couture!!!! I wonder what John Wayne might have thought of this collection...hmm?
