Black and white as per usual, but it doesn't look like the typical "black and white" combination. Here white, or cream, on top and black on bottom, with a red pop from the bag. The blazer is cream linen I had tailored for me when I was in Shanghai. The ankle strap flats, which are actually jelly ones by Fendi with the signature Fendi buckle, are great with shorts or a short skirt. I love this outfit for ending summer.

Every look from Mulberry's spring collection was sublime to me. The colors- burnt orange, soft pinks, mint green, navy - were so beautiful on leather and silk. Oh and the accessories! Floral and studded bags and sandals and booties in florals as well! I fell in love with this collection immediately. It is so feminine! What more could a girl want?
The show also brought some very stylish A-list girls.

Chambray is not only for shirts, but skirts too. I like the combination of a denim jacket with a full chambray striped skirt, making a menswear trend feminine. For an edge, all black accessories, including a silver sparkle Miu Miu belt with black trim, and clear round sunglasses.
In a little more than one week, I will be in Paris starting an internship at a fashion magazine! I will update the blog with all my findings soon! For now, I am watching the new collections from New York and London and soon Milan from my computer.

New York designers reinvented spring like I haven't seen in a while with their spring 2013 ready to wear collections. I was especially taken with Francisco Costa's week closing. Known for his simple cuts and timeless elegance, Costa proved that less is more. Starting with a pin-up look to peplum, the collection had a very feminine sex appeal as well as elegance for a perfect harmony. The mix of fabrics gave quite a gaze, blending smoothly, like a white lining to black mesh.
Now, it's on to London!

I was just browsing through one of my favorite blogger's Kamel Lahmadi's Style and the City's iPhone application and came upon these photos. Kamel always captures such natural and stylish women with their own true style. I love these of Joanna Hillman! She makes the striped tweed jacket and shorts set even better than it already is with a pair bright red polka dot Miu Miu platforms. Like she isn't naturally cool and chic already, Joanna puts together an unexpected combination for a very cool outfit.

As summer is coming to an end, I have to take advantage of the lighter summer colors. For a trip to the art museum, I wore a mint tweed dress with gold studs going down the middle of the top part, with two-toned flats. I love how Chanel can take tweed into so many different forms, it really inspires this outfit.
